my responsibilities with others and myself. These experiences, shaped by
my challenges and the joy of my successes, have allowed me to journey through

To accomplish this goal of receiving and sharing wisdom with one another, women attend seminars. There they become re-acquainted with and are exposed to various ways of communicating and expressing their personal experiences. In this open environment, through guided exercises, they become familiar with listening and sharing their concerns. Also they examine the way they handle life's challenges.
Using experimental methods, the women experiment with the skills of decision making and finding options. They learn to select the best choices for themselves. Finally, they explore what is necessary to act on these positive decisions.

WHAT is the Life Continuum?
It is the circle of life and the heart of the LIFE STAGES program. Our logo
represents women of all colors, races, creeds and countries as they encircle the
earth. Women pass on life. They are the keepers of life and its traditions.
The ability to create life is in their bodies and their brains and their hearts.
Women share the bodily experience of ever changing cycles and the challenges
of the stages of life that come with age. Women are all different yet all the same. When women bond together, they can share the wisdom of their experiences and find the strength of seeing in each other where they have been in life; where they are in life and where they can go in life.

That is the Life Continuum.
WHAT are Experiential Methods?
Moving your body and using your brain.
Theatricals are short, original, one woman plays that dramatize real life problem solving,
communicating and other relevant topics to the seminars.
Role playing is the opportunity to talk from various perspectives and experience other options of
thought by acting them out. It can also be taking the identity of another person and talking as if
you were in their place. Role playing then becomes a way to experience what it is like to look at
life from another person’s point of view and examine different life choices.
Guided exercises are opportunities for taking
the time to look at, and share with others,
ways of thinking about, evaluating and deciding what to say and do
with the multiple stresses and demands faced in daily living.
