Divorce and Beyond

Divorce and Beyond – March 3

The Seminar

If you are separated from your spouse, going through a divorce, or are divorced, we encourage you to attend this seminar. We understand the feelings of rejection, anger, fear, confusion, isolation, betrayal, guilt and helplessness that can result from divorce. You may feel like you are on an emotional rollercoaster, one day you feel fine, the next day you feel hopeless, or you feel like you are still attached to your ex. Emotions have a way of fooling us into believing that things will never change or get better. During this time, it is critical to gain a healthy perspective by understanding the root of your emotions, which will enable you to take the necessary steps to move forward with your life.

The Divorce & Beyond seminar addresses these issues in a safe, nurturing environment. People are seated at round tables and given opportunities to share, facilitated by a trained leader. We’ve found that these initial discussions are best conducted in gender specific settings. However, the optional support groups that meet after the seminar are coed, each group has a male and a female facilitator, enabling us to learn from one another.

Yes, divorce hurts, but we can help.
