Navigating the Midlife Transition

Week of April 6, 2019

Navigating the Midlife Transition: Thriving in Our “Second Adulthood.”

Delve into the challenges and opportunities of midlife and learn how to not only survive, but thrive, at 40 and later.

In midlife, many of us will face an overload of demands coming from our work, children, and aging parents, not to mention our own struggles with relationships, health, and identity. As a result, we will feel a need to examine who we are, where we’ve been, and what we want out of our second half.

In this presentation, Midlife Empowerment Coach Hélène Tragos Stelian unpacks the myths, challenges, and opportunities of midlife, then shares 10 ways to thrive in midlife and beyond by crafting a “second adulthood” of authenticity, connection, and purpose.

Workshop: Own your superpowers!
Yes, we all have them. So why are we sometimes reluctant to let our unique gifts, talents, and abilities shine? In this workshop, we’ll learn how expressing our strengths is essential to our well-being and we’ll discuss ways to identify, own, and utilize them.

Workshop: Banish negative self-talk!
We all hear it, that little voice inside our head that tells us we can’t do it, we’re not deserving, we’re not smart enough—in essence, not good enough. In this workshop, we’ll uncover our limiting beliefs and learn to recognize and reframe them. So we can stop beating ourselves up and keeping ourselves small. And embrace the bigger, more fearless life we all deserve.

Workshop: What’s your legacy?
At some point in our lives, we begin to think about the meaning of life—of our life—and what we’ll leave behind. How do we want to be remembered? What impact do we wish to have, whether on our family, our community, or our world? In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to create and shape our unique legacies and explore options for each of us to do just that.
