What we're about

The older I get the more I value the input and support of wise women with experience gleaned from lives both ordinary and extraordinary. Somewhere in childhood I picked up the sense that someday life would be smooth sailing, that I would have everything figured out and I would move through my impressive career and relationships with ease. Not only is that a myth we need to stop telling our daughters (and sons) but it would probably make for a very boring life.

Three years ago I moved to West Sussex. My life’s work, my friends and my family are now all very far away. I miss the female friendships that informed my choices and enhanced my journey, and I sense others might too. Let’s face it, life is better walking with our girlfriends; laughing, crying, sharing, encouraging, just spending time together.

I’ve now spilled over into my 50s. I have stories to tell but also lessons to learn. This group holds space for you and your stories too, whatever your age, wherever your journey has led.
