    I took myself to MEA to mark my 60th birthday and had many Aha moments while in Baja! While other friends were not keen to celebrate similar milestone birthdays, so many great ideas and great connections at MEA left me feeling beyond excited for my third trimester!

    So your mid-life went alright, but you’re torn between cruising or maximising the next stage, and how you might do that. MEA joins your ups with like-minded souls and guides you to thrive in this gooey stage while tweaking your mind-set to one that opens doors to far way more than what the world had in mind for you as a ‘retired’ person.
