Yes, I'm ready for a Renaissance!

Are you ready for a midlife (and beyond) Renaissance?

As so many things that have been familiar, comfortable, and unchanging suddenly fall away, shift and transform you might find yourself wondering: Who am I? or What is next?

The second half of life is a time of rebirth, renewal and reinvention – let’s explore it together!

Your Midlife Renaissance is a one year group coaching program with a dynamic and creative curriculum designed to support you in living your best life at any age from 45 to 105.


This program was designed with you in mind:

  • You have been feeling like you’ve tried everything and nothing is helping you get the clarity you need.
  • You’ve done the therapy and the coaching, you’ve made peace with your past and still something is missing, you still feel stuck
  • You are longing to deepen your relationship to your innermost self.
  • You are afraid to share your dream because it feels too big - way bigger than you - and you struggle with imposter syndrome or worry that you are too old to start something new.
  •  Maybe the universe has been nudging you for years and you can’t ignore the depth of your calling anymore. Now is the time to get clear, get creative, and get moving in the direction of your dreams.

Your Midlife Renaissance is for creative and sensitive souls who:

  •  are seeking personal support as the next stage of your life is unfolding and evolving. You are probably feeling off-kilter, shaken up and surprised by the depth of your calling. Equal parts exhilarating and terrifying, you know you have important work to do in the world and you can’t quite wrap your arms around it or describe it - even to yourself.
  •  are ready NOW! You are so done thinking, dreaming, hiding, and not believing in yourself. You know deep in your bones that this is the moment to EMERGE. You want permission to be fully, authentically YOU.
  •  feel like days, weeks, months and years are passing by. You’ve given everything to take care of kids, family, career. You’ve loved every minute of it but you are feeling unfulfilled and called to do something just for you. You realize it’s now or never to get started on YOUR dreams.  
  •  is an open-minded, deep thinker and soulful seeker. You long to belong to a diverse, creative community of humans on the path to making the world a better place. Secretly you are a bit of a rebel and you are ready to share your REBEL YELL!
  •  want access to high-level, skilled mentorship and coaching from an expert who sees you, gets you and believes in you (and who has walked the path before you) at a fee that leaves money left over for living your new dream life. 
  • value connection, community, collaboration and creativity.
  •  are willing to do the inner mindset work and the outer creative work to clarify your purpose, reconnect to your path and activate your vibrant vision (even if you don’t quite know what that vision is yet.)
  •  know you need more focus and support with managing your time and your energy so you can stop procrastinating for good.

You can’t think your way through this!

But you can...

paint, write, collage, draw and dance your way through it!

Yes, this is what I have been seeking!

If you’ve read this far and your Inner Rebel is saying “hell yes” and your head still has some doubts, let’s talk about them now. 

Trust me, I’ve said all of these myself every time I think about joining a new program.

Q. How much time will this take?

A. People always ask me this question and honestly I can’t answer it for YOU. In an ideal world, you would spend 15 to 30 minutes 3 times a week with the exercises. Perhaps you prefer to spend an hour on a Saturday morning or a Tuesday night. You will get out of this program what you are willing to put in. 

Q. I suck at completing DIY online programs, will this offer the accountability I need?

A. Yes! This is not another DIY program. We have 4 live calls each month. One of those calls is dedicated to getting sh** done. Creative co-working is my favorite thing! You also have the option to add private coaching calls to the program for increased support. Because any program takes however much time it takes, you will have 1 year access to the content and community so that you can go at your own pace.

Q. Will I really get the results I am seeking?

A. I can’t guarantee your results. I can guarantee if you trust the process and work through each of the assignments over the 12 weeks you will feel more clear, committed and ready for what’s next.

Q. Is my dream even worth it?

A. Oof, we are always our own harshest critics. If you’ve spent a lifetime putting others or your career first and thinking it’s selfish to spend time and money on yourself it might be extra hard to give yourself this time and opportunity. Let me ask you this, do you want to leave this world not having given your dream a chance?

Q. What is your cancellation policy?

A. You will have 30 days to try the program and can cancel future payments at the end of 30 days. You will still pay the $97.00 for the first month and will not get that back. 

Your Midlife Renaissance will help you to deepen your relationship to yourself and trust your inner knowing– so that you can finally feel clear, calm and committed to living your best creative life.

Fall in love with creative process and use it as a powerful tool for personal transformation and growth.
Use our assessment tools to rediscover your creative voice, reconnect to your core values and create a dynamic new vision for your life and work.
Reboot your relationships with yourself, with others, with time and with energy so that you can set clear boundaries and prioritize self-care and creative play.

Your Midlife Renaissance is perfect for people who:

  • Are in the 3rd quarter of their life (ages 45-75ish) and wondering what’s next.
  • Love personal growth and self-discovery. You are a lifelong learner.
  • Appreciate deep thoughtful questions and meaningful conversations.
  •  Are called to the expressive arts as a tool for deepening your connection to yourself and to Spirit.

It has been such a beautiful experience since day one
Hi! My name is Aimee and I have been part of "Your Midlife Renaissance" for a little over 4 months now. It has been such a beautiful experience since day one and has really helped me claim this time in my life for myself and define and clarify my mission and purpose. The exercises are fun and very impactful plus the community of like-minded people is motivating. I have been in many programs but this one, Your Midlife Renaissance, along with Minette's coaching and mentorship is life-changing. Her authenticity in wanting to help comes through in everything she teaches! I am so grateful to have come across this program, Minette, and this wonderful community. It has definitely been a highlight in my life over the last few months and has helped me make an impact with my mission and purpose. Thank you Minette - XOXO

Minette will bring you peace and confidence that you are creative!
I’ve discovered that not only does creative work produce end results, it’s the process itself that inspires productivity in other areas. Sitting quietly and putting images or colors on a page not only relaxes me, it opens my mind to ideas and concepts in other areas of my work. Whether you think you’re creative or not right now, this playshop will bring you peace and confidence that you are creative!

I'm filled with excitement and joy as I look forward to the person I am becoming
Being a part of Minette's Midlife Renaissance program has truly been a transformative journey. It's a loving and creative community where I've regained my footing in life, especially as I am in the throws of navigating life as an empty nester and relocating to a new city. The unwavering support I've received from Minette and this program, with its wealth of classroom resources and insightful monthly community calls, has made these major transitions so much smoother. The program's creative tools and exercises have allowed me to reevaluate my values, commitments, and dreams as I embrace this new chapter in midlife. I've gained remarkable clarity and confidence in who I am today, along with a profound sense of gratitude and wisdom from my past self. Moreover, I'm filled with excitement and joy as I look forward to the person I am becoming. This program has been an invaluable guide on my journey to self-discovery and fulfillment during this Midlife Renaissance.

Hi, I’m Dr. Minette Riordan.

I am that person who is a deep thinker and creative. The first time I worked with a therapist I was tentative and often found it challenging to answer her questions or share deeply in sessions. So I started writing her letters. This helped me to gather my thoughts. Then I would read the letters to her during our sessions. I found my creative voice in those letters and was able to articulate and talk about some of the more difficult experiences of my life. I still use writing as a way to connect with myself and gather my thoughts. Since then, I’ve also learned to use art to express what I don’t have words for and this has been a game changer in my own healing process. I feel deeply and don’t always have the words to share those feelings but through color, shape and image I can express myself. 

So many of my dreams, ideas and plans have originated from my personal creative practice. 

If you would have asked me 5 years ago if I was an artist or told me that art and creativity would be the central focus of my life and work, I would have said no way, I can't do that, I'm not an artist.

What started as a personal journey and exploration of my own limiting beliefs has led to where I am today, boldly owning my artistry and creating a safe space for others to do the same.

I won't lie, it was a winding spiral path to get to this place. I was so tentative about stepping fully into the most authentic version of myself. I got here by embracing a daily creative practice, using my own creative depth coaching tools and taking what seems like a million baby steps in the direction of my soul's calling. 

What matters is that I stayed on the path and now, at 58, I can say that I have never been more myself in my entire life. I am an artist. I am the artist of my life. And I am here to travel with you and be your guide as you embrace your calling.

Not sure if this is for you? You can schedule a call with Minette here to learn more.
