Midlife Women

Helping Spirited Midlife Women Celebrate Beauty, Passion and Purpose

See how my SpiritDance coaching  model works >


To all you beautiful midlife women:

Do you long to tell a new story?
Hear the music that makes your spirit dance?
Claim the beauty that radiates from within?
Renew passion and purpose? 


Sometimes in midlife we lose track of ourselves. Maybe we feel like there's just not enough time, we fear getting older, would like to feel better about our bodies, face losses or just plain feel a like our spirits aren't as high as we'd like. I say that is a great time to stop and, with a little guidance, reinvent ourselves.

I'm Lynn Baskfield. I've travelled the road of midlife, am a certified coach and equine guided educator and I'm excited to be here to help you get your groove back.

As your coach, I help you step into the vision for your life that has been waiting for a long time to come front and center. 

Here's how I help you do that. Together we:

  • Clarify what you want
  • Identify obstacles that keep you stuck and how you can break through
  • Design a plan that includes easy to manage, bite-sized steps to living the life you love

My job, throughout the process, is to hold you accountable, nurture you gently, kick butt sometimes, recognize your greatness and celebrate your progress. 

 Just last week someone in my book club commented about how I made the transition from my corporate job to working on my own. I told them about you and how much you helped me get started in my business. You are such a large part of my life story, and I will always be grateful.   - Janet Ajax, Ajax Accounting LLC


How we get to the heart of what matters to you:

Along with talk coaching, I use experiential learning methods such as  storytelling, writing, creative expression, card readings, ritual, nature and very centrally, the wisdom of horses in my work. With these resources, I accompany you through rites of passage as you transition from old, stuck ways of being to living a more fulfilling, self-expressed life.

My role is to listen carefully, ask powerful questions, and provide accountability. Your role is to deepen your learning, clarify your vision, and move forward with it.

We start with a two-hour Discovery Process and set up weekly appointments thereafter. I encourage all my local clients to do some of their coaching with the guidance of horses (why horses?)   Because coaching can take place on the phone or in person, you don't have to live in the same city your coach does. (Some of my out-of-state clients come in once in a while - coaching with the horses is just too good to miss!)

It is a joy to partner with you in the adventure of creating a life you love, to encourage your full self-expression, and to honor your unique path to a meaningful time of life.

I love the following words. I encourage every midlife woman to take them to heart.

Being self-luminous,
You cause everything to shine
Delighting in your form
You fill the universe with delight;
Rocking with your own bliss
You make the world dance with joy.
