MEA cohorts consist of small groups of compadres who have attended a workshop together in Baja, Santa Fe or online.

Each cohort tends to stay in touch for continued support, learning, and connection. Many deep friendships form from the time spent together. Some of our cohorts have met monthly for years!

The Cohort Experience

Thriving Community
Be a part of a community where a shared language, curiosity, and growth mindset thrive, creating an atmosphere where every individual's journey is valued and nurtured.
Ongoing  Engagement
Maintain the momentum of your midlife journey by staying connected with your cohort. Cohorts regularly reunite through Zoom meetings, WhatsApp groups, and diverse experiences, including camping and return campus visits.
Online Programs & Events
Participate with hundreds in MEA's online workshops, attending monthly Community Cafés that expand your network and growth prospects.
Lasting Friendships
Establish enduring and meaningful relationships with your cohort. Many participants find workshop connections to be among the most significant and lasting in their lives.

My MEA experience was life-changing. Best of all, I found real and unexpected friendship with a cohort of some of the most authentic, gentle, truly inspiring people I’ve ever met.

September of Service

MEA’s local Chapters making a social impact

2023 marked a year of meaningful impact for our Chapters, thanks to the launch of the 'September of Service' initiative. Globally, our members enthusiastically participated in a wide range of service activities, demonstrating their commitment to making a difference. These activities included environmental efforts like weeding gardens, cleaning beaches and rivers, as well as social contributions such as packing food and mentoring young entrepreneurs.

Quite simply, MEA changed my life. I felt seen, I felt heard, I felt listened to... at a time in my life when I really needed it.
