An online course for women - just like you - who are seeking a new way to explore midlife.

When you reach your 30s, 40s, and beyond, the desire to start cultivating a more wholehearted, authentic way of life grows stronger.

It’s the age-old story for many women:

  • Over the years our lives can lose a bit of luster, swallowed up by the minutiae of life - obligations, errands, and appointments - and we begin to feel disconnected from what ignites our passion and joy.
  • We’ve spent decades so focused on everyone around us - our parents, our jobs, our kids, our partners - that we lose sight of our true selves and our own dreams.
  • The years have really started to fly by now and we wonder... What if I want more?

Can you relate?

What is midlife?

It's deciding that THIS IS IT. Now is your time.

The Universe is inviting YOU to the dance and if there are things you want to do in your life NOW is the time.

Maybe you’ve been dreaming about ways to invite more meaning into your life for a while now.

Maybe you feel ready to step outside of your familiar, well-worn patterns and shake things up.

What if you felt inspired to become the bravest, most authentic version of yourself?

Instead of feeling your way around in the dark, what if someone who has walked this path before you could take you by the hand and guide you through?

That’s where The Unfolding can help.

Hi, I'm Lori Roberts

Not so long ago, I was just where you are...

My own Unfolding started in my mid-30s. My cubicle job no longer felt fulfilling. I felt like I was living on autopilot. Something started bubbling up, calling me to start asking some questions about where my life was going.

Particularly, how did I slowly settle into this watered- down version of myself instead of really living and intentionally creating a colorful, abundant life?

So I started paying attention. I started shifting my routines and inviting more joy into my life. I allowed myself to play. And gradually the fabric of my life became richer and more interesting.

Now I’ve recently turned 50 and I feel like I’ve found my groove again!

I’ve become a journaling evangelist! After years of creative journaling, I know how exercises like these encourage deep reflection and growth.

I will shout this from the rooftops if you’ll let me :) Joy is a practice and we all have the capacity to invite more awe and delight into our lives.

We create our lives as we go - on the fly - and now is the time to really dig deep and start living with intention and purpose.

Whether you're in your 30s or your 70s, I know for certain it's never too late if you want more.

You want to cultivate a life of optimism & gratitude.

You believe in joy for joy's sake.

You know self-compassion will sustain you through good times and bad.

You are ready to find your way home to your true self.

What do you want the next half of your life to look like?

You’ll have lifetime access to unfold as slowly or quickly as you like!

Together, we'll start untangling our midlife experiences through creative journaling exercises.

These exercises are personal to my own journey and have helped me gain focus, awareness, and meaning in my life.

The goal of journaling for The Unfolding is not perfection, but to chronicle this exploration, to capture your thoughts, feelings, and learnings in one big, messy, beautiful place. Looking back on your journal will be more fulfilling if it is an authentic recording of this time together.

No art skill or experience necessary! Just have fun :)

It was a deep focus on what I value, what I want out of life, and what my strengths are.

Lori’s prompts are meant to inspire you and get you thinking, and they do not disappoint. I return to my pages often to remind myself of who I am when I start to feel overloaded, and I continue to use art in my journaling. I highly recommend The Unfolding for anyone who needs re-centering, rest, and time to reflect.

Love after Love

by Derek Walcott

The time will come

when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving

at your own door, in your own mirror,

and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Give wine. Give bread, Give back your heart

to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored

for another, who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf

the photographs, the desperate notes,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can benefit from this kind of self-reflection at any age! I started my own Unfolding in my 30s.

This course is about waking up, taking stock, asking some hard questions, and moving into the rest of our lives with intention and purpose.

Once you enroll you have access to the entire course and all the materials.

The course is divided into 6 sections and was initially created as a 6-week course but because you have access to all of the content at once, you can go at your own pace.

This interactive course encourages you to creatively approach the concepts through journaling prompts & hands-on activities. It is not a course on how to paint.

There are suggestions on how you might art journal the prompts but you can also just use a notebook and pen. 

No, there is no Facebook group. You are able to comment on each lesson
within the course and if there is enough interest we can start a private community within the Kajabi classroom.

We can also connect using the hashtag #TheUnfoldingCourse on social media.

Once you are enrolled in the course I am unable to offer a refund.

I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions about the course prior to signing up.

The Unfolding is now an interactive online course that includes illustrated journaling prompts, videos and activities. There are several printable PDFs in this course but not in a workbook format.

Now is the time.

Lean into this season of your life.

Embrace the possibility.

Embrace your power, your wisdom, the gift that is RIGHT NOW.

This moment.

"If you are a woman, struggling as you find yourself in a new season of life, this course is for you.

Lori’s gentle encouragement, beautiful artwork, and creative exercises will help you reconnect with your soul and discover your next adventure. I think this would make a lovely activity for friends to do together."
