“People may call what happens at midlife “a crisis,” but it’s not. It’s an unravelling
—a time when you feel a desperate pull to live the life you want to live, not the one you’re “supposed” to live. The unravelling is a time when you are challenged by the universe to let go of who you think you are supposed to be and to embrace who you are.”
~ Brene Brown
My name is Ryan James and I set up ‘We Won’t Die Wondering’ in support of those of us going through such a process of transformation.
A kind of ‘life club’ & coaching practice for folks seeking renewed purpose, meaning, fulfilment, connection and adventure in the 2nd half of life.
Here are some ways to enjoy We Won’t Die Wondering…
Listen to a Podcast.
In my own quest for insights and understanding of this great unravelling in midlife, I’ve interviewed a host of profoundly wise teachers and curious friends along the way.
Love for my Podcast:
“Hi Ryan… I started listening to your podcast this week and I just wanted to say thank you for making it! It has genuinely affected me greatly… I’ve listened to almost all of the episodes and laughed along with you, cried with you and found myself listening to it whilst cooking! It’s brilliant, thank you!” ~ Danny S.
Come on a Wander.
Come and get connected out in nature for the day, with a bunch of likeminded souls all hungry to let go and explore all of who they really are in all they really feel called to do (in life, love, business & beyond).
(I also coordinate and lead ‘Wanders’ for teams, if this is of interest).
Love for my Wanders:
“What a heart-warming, soul-soothing fully connecting experience! A great wander with old and new friends alike. Starting with my usual hugs, we got to share some life experience and some solitude in a protective environment. I came away buzzing and after a Sunday roast, felt on top of the world! Thanks Ryan.” ~ Karl F.
Go wild & come for a 'reset'.
When I found myself at my lowest ebb, I found my way walking the ‘Camino de Santiago’. Now I lead others on similarly life-affirming week-long adventures, purposely designed to instigate a relatable energetic shift.
(I am also able coordinate a week-long ‘reset’ for teams too, if this is of interest).
Love for my Adventures:
“Just book it… Don’t read into it. Trust the facilitators and their natural ability and want to create a safe and open space. You will come back one step closer to understanding who you actually are… Oh, and with (good) sore legs!” ~ Dave H. (BIG SUMMER ‘RESET’, June 2023)
Go deep and get Coached.
If you really want to get to the heart of the matter, consider getting coached. Together we’ll help you to find your way with the renewed purpose your soul really craves.
Love for my Coaching:
“Take whatever notions you have of a coach and park them somewhere and instead be open to the genuine, down to earth, respectful and passionate presence of Ryan and his considerable range of tried and tested expertise and skills. He might just genuinely hearten you, as he has me, into believing that it might just be possible to attend to the quiet callings of the heart’s depths & to step towards the unrequited life…” ~ Katherine S.
