Support TTN
 Talking Circles and Workshops
led by professional facilitators and coaches.

Being in transition can be both exciting and daunting.  Most of us got here after having careers, tending to family, supporting the goals and needs of others, and gaining as much experience and skills as we could possibly cram in.  And many of us had to postpone pursuing our own dreams because, let’s face it, there weren’t enough hours in the day. Now it’s our time to refocus those passions and find new purpose.  That’s what The Transition Network is all about and that’s what LIFE TRANSITION SERVICES, the NYC Chapter’s program of talking circles and workshops, is here to help with.  

Last spring we launched LIFE TRANSITION SERVICES as a way to continue to expand our horizons and to deepen the experiences of our members’ lives.  Since then we’ve offered talking circles on ageism, personal appearances, caregiving, bereavement, and workshops on Crafting Your Next Act, and Women in Transition.   Life Transition services addresses topics in which members have expressed interest. As we move forward, these themes will expand, as will the formats in which they are offered – all based on input from our members.  

Talking Circles

By the end of 2017 we will have completed at least nine talking circles and three workshops.  Talking circles are literally that – a small group of women in a discussion group led by a seasoned facilitator experienced with a specific transition topic.  If a topic should resonate with attendees, it could lead to follow-up discussions or an in-depth workshop.  The topics for this year are:
  • Personal Appearance
  • Caregiving
  • Bereavement
  • Retirement
  • Un-partnered Aging
  • Breaking Stereotypes of Aging
  • Thriving on Your Own
  • Body Appreciation
  • So - What About Sex?


Three workshops will be offered in 2017. These will allow us to dig deeper and explore ways to move through life’s most challenging changes with purpose and confidence.  And this is all done within our safe, personal and confidential TTN community led by experienced professionals. The workshop topics are:
  • Women In Transition
  • Crafting Your Next Act 
  • Personal Appearance

So if you are….
•        Experiencing or anticipating change, for the first time, the second time, or the fifth time
•        Seeking a safe and supportive environment to take on new challenges and define your next steps
•        Wondering if there could be “more” to your life as you enjoy the freedom from work and other
          mid-life commitments …
….then, Life Transition Services workshops and talking circles have been designed with you in mind.
