What Is "Retirement" or WHAT NEXT™?

Workshop & discussion group facilitators - Ruth Neubauer, Karen Van Allen



We owe it to ourselves to chart a vision for what comes next!

In transition you may not know "what next". Our programs are designed to help you navigate this time of transition:

  • make changes in your life
  • define your particular retirement or transition path
  • empower you to create new ideas and possibilities
  • give you confidence to cope and embrace what life brings

WHY "Retirement" or WHAT NEXT™?

A unique process; a nurturing environment

We have developed a comprehensive and systematic "work-through" process:

  • activities directly and effectively address the issues typically facing woman over 50 in transition
  • limited group size allows for optimal level of interaction
  • a safe, experiential, confidential, supportive environment
  • a community of women facing similar choices and challenges

Caring, present, grounded, expert facilitators

For almost 15 years, Ruth Neubauer and Karen Van Allen have applied their expertise in helping hundreds of women with their transition issues.

The support group on “Women in Transition” led by Karen and Ruth provides the nurturing needed to move forward in the adventures of life. I highly recommend this group for any women…threads were transformed thru this support group into new creative, artistic, and spiritual renewal.
