Challenges can feel like a definitive ending, but they can actually be a new beginning. Part narrative non-fiction and part memoir, Season 1 of Initiate explores the resilience of women through authentic, intergenerational conversations on a monthly basis. Join storyteller and purpose-seeker Sarah Kyo as she meets women of a certain age, a.k.a. "experienced women," who've taken a self-reflective, proactive approach to their life transitions. Words of wisdom will not only inspire listeners, but also empower our host, as she navigates her early 30s. Sometimes, the best way to find your path is to learn from someone who has already blazed a trail.
