Gain Clarity & Confidence for Your Next Chapter

Allow your life experiences to be your guide
through a 12-week Life Review Course


Life has been good, and…

You’re ready for more ease and flow.

You’ve spent the last few decades building a career, taking care of your family, being a friend, and serving your community – doing your best as you juggle it all.  In many ways, you’ve been operating on “auto-pilot” toward a vision you created years ago for your life.

And now you’re at a crossroads. Perhaps you’re thinking about changing your career or retiring, or you’ve become an empty nester, or your relationship status has changed, or maybe you have a gnawing feeling that something deep within you wants to be expressed.

The questions bubble up: “Who am I?”  “What do I want?” “What’s the right next step for me?”

Life Review will help you figure it out. 

To move forward with clarity and confidence, it helps to look at where you’ve been—the stories that make you who you are. The stories you tell yourself about yourself. The stories that hold you back or weigh you down.  Life Review will help you tap into the wisdom of your stories and experience how they have the power to inspire, heal, make peace with the past, and ignite excitement for your future.  

Uncover your truest self as you enter your 50s, 60s & 70s.

In this live 12-week course, you will taken step-by-step through the Journey to Legacy life review framework. You will get clear on who you are today, be able to identify what you want to focus on—what feels unfinished, what your priorities are and what to let go of.

You’ll be encouraged to take action throughout the course to actively shift patterns that no longer serve you. With live lessons, introspective prompts, memory-provoking questions, visualization exercises and energizing assignments, you’ll start finding inspiration for the years ahead and will arrive at a level of peace and self-acceptance you have never known.

The path is your own but we’re on this journey together

I’m Joanna Klein, your guide through the life review process. 

At the age of 70, I understand the challenges many of us face as we age. I, too, have felt that gnawing feeling that there is something more possible and found that life review is the path to the clarity and inspiration that we deserve in our third act. Leveraging my 40 years of experience creating programs that bring about positive change and as a teacher, counselor and intuitive coach, I designed this program to guide you through life review so you can shift from uncertainty or overwhelm to inspired action. 

As the teacher and facilitator of the course, my secret sauce is intuitively guiding people through a unique process of reframing their life stories in an intimate setting so they can see and honor themselves for who they are and the experiences that shaped their lives. 

If your life isn’t where you hoped it would be, if you’re still growing, if you aren’t done yet,  if there’s longing in your heart, if you want to make peace with the past, if you want more meaning in your life, if you’re ready to give yourself permission to be who you are meant to be… I am honored to be your guide on this journey. 

“As you get older, you realize the importance of being intentional. That’s why doing a life review is important — understanding what things have meant in your life. That’s how you become wise.”

I want to thank you, Joanna. Because this program has made such a difference in my life. I never would have ever understood some of this (my life) and I’m a freakin psychologist. I mean, hello? There’s a lot more to this work that you present, then maybe you’ll even ever know. I’m astonished at the depth and the reframing of things in my own life. I’ll just say that. So thank you.

I have never thought of myself as a writer. Writing isn’t easy for me. And yet I have absolutely loved Journey to Legacy! I was drawn to this program as a vehicle for self-discovery. When I learned about it, I sensed that it could provide answers to the question, “How did I become the person that I am today?” And as I’ve delved into the stories of my past, I’ve gained insights that have often taken me by surprise.
I have nothing but praise for the way that Joanna has designed Journey to Legacy and how she leads it. Sometimes she teaches, at other times she asks just the right questions. She invites and supports, always with the goal of helping us explore the stories of our lives. I whole-heartedly recommend this program.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

How much time will this take?

Our weekly sessions last for 90 minutes each.  Following each session, you’ll be given an assignment (we call them explorations) that usually takes about one hour to complete. The explorations are based on the theme of each session and include a mixture of journaling prompts and activities. 

How is life review different from therapy?

While life review involves reflecting on your broader life journey, therapy uses clinical techniques to address specific mental health concerns that are negatively impacting your current well-being and functioning. Life review seeks to find empowerment, meaning and closure by re-examining the entirety of your life, whereas therapy aims to relieve current acute symptoms and issues.

What is the relationship between life review and life story writing?

Through the process of life review, you uncover the stories that have meaning; that have had the biggest impact on you and which are the source of wisdom and joy. You shine a light on your strengths and on those experiences in your life worth writing about. 

Part of how we gain new perspectives on the stories we tell ourselves is through writing, and there are writing assignments throughout the program. 

If you’ve ever journaled, you have experienced the insight that can come from intuitive writing.

Writing brings clarity. It’s healing. It’s a release. It gets it out of your head and onto the page.

As you write, you will likely find that your life has had much more substance to it and more impact than you realized. 

And through this process, if you want to write meaningful stories to pass something on, this is a great starting place.

What if I can’t make all the live sessions?

All of the sessions will be recorded an you’ll have access to the replays through your private portal on the membership site.

How much of my time will this take?

We will meet once a week for 12 weeks.  On sessions are live on Zoom. (We’ll take some weeks off during the holidays.).  You’ll have recommended writing and activity assignments and recommended reading, but the amount of time you want to devote to those activities is up to you.  This course is designed in a way that makes you look forward to your writing time without feeling overwhelmed or under pressure to produce.

What if I can’t remember much from my past?

That’s a common concern and we understand why. The course lessons, prompts and guided visualizations are delivered in a way that jogs your memory and helps you explore the past in a gentle, safe way.

How long will I have access to this course and writing platform?

You’ll have access for one year to our intuitive writing software. You can renew your subscription to our writing software on a monthly or annual basis for a nominal annual fee.

What if my past is too painful?

As a counselor and intuitive coach, I know how difficult it is to experience and recall painful memories. In this course, you’ll be gently guided to explore the difficult experiences that influenced who you are today. However, you do not have to go beyond what is comfortable or feels right for you. There are many exercises that help you make peace with some of the most challenging moments of your past and celebrate your strength and ability to rise above. You’ll also have a safe and compassionate community of other life reviewers to lean on throughout your journey.

What is your refund policy?

If you purchase this course and feel it is not right for you within 15 days of the opening class, you are protected with our money-back guarantee. Simply email us and we will process your refund.

What if I’m not ready but want to learn more about how this process works?

We recommend starting with our free downloadable guide so you get a feel of what’s involved and the process of life story writing. You can also schedule a call to ask any questions you have.

Writing down my stories has made me notice many of my life events were more impactful than I realized and that I was still carrying some shame, guilt, or regret about them. Writing down my stories has allowed me to shine the light and see those stories from a new perspective. It has freed up stagnant energy and lightened a load I didn’t even know I was carrying.

Why Wait?

Don’t Let Another Year Go By Wondering What Your Life Was All About

You’ve made it this far, and you owe it to yourself to honor what you’ve lived through and the impact you’ve made.

When is the last time you paused to consider the valuable lessons you’ve gained on your life journey?

Reflecting on your life and those moments that made you who you are today is not only profoundly enlightening and healing, but can help you feel more deeply connected to yourself, your purpose and the contributions and decisions you wish to make moving forward.

Your Life. Your Story. Your Legacy.
