Lots of women get stuck in the “messy middle” of life

Navigating midlife, with its unique set of big changes and challenges, isn't always easy. The anchors that used to hold you and your life in place have often shifted or even disappeared. You can feel life's passing you by, question who you are now and wonder is this it? Is this all there is?

If this is how you're feeling, you're not alone, there's nothing wrong with you and there are things you can do to change it!

I'm Rachel Lankester, founder of the Magnificent Midlife Movement. I'm a mentor, totally committed to helping women move positively through menopause and beyond the messy middle, and create a magnificent midlife experience that sets you up for long-term health, happiness and fulfillment.

I know you don't have to settle for the life you have. You can choose to build the one you want.

Sometimes all you need is a little help and inspiration, so if you're longing for fulfillment and purpose in your next chapter, you're in the right place.

We have a transformational personal mentoring program, a beautifully supportive community, an abundance of educational resources, an inspiring podcast and enlightening self-study programs, all here to help you refresh, re-energize and refocus.  

I'd love to connect and chat with you about how you can create your Magnificent Midlife!



"When the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:

I’m not screwing around. All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go. Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts... You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think...Courage and daring are coursing through your veins. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen."

10 Essential Elements To Thriving In Midlife

What Women Say About Our Community

Stacy Alcorn-Davenport

I've found a group of like-minded women to hang out with even if it's a virtual one. It's prompted me to be more proactive about how I see my ageing self. It's helping me deal with the day-to-day malarkey of menopause. More importantly, it’s giving me the support I need to move forward hopefully, more gracefully and gratefully.

I want to say thanks Rachel for the brilliant group call tonight. Whether they're personal goals (diet and sleep!) or business (love fleshing out the visions and defining actions), it at last all feels ordinary, real and timely. Really looking forward to meeting other women at this ground-breaking, transformative stage of life and being a part of us all living the lives we want and need, for ourselves and the planet.

The Members Club is bloody amazing! If you're like me and wondering what's next in life or how you can get there, this is for you. If you refuse to let age or anything else hold you back but you feel you need a map to help you get there and a hand to hold for support, then I definitely recommend you join. It's the place to be!  It's great fun and so helpful.
