Divorce marks the legal ending of a marriage, but the unraveling of this committed relationship is where the real work begins.
In this workshop for divorcing women, you will be introduced to the idea that your marital ending is a rite of passage to be honored and utilized as an opportunity for growth and transformation. We will make space for your feelings, unearth the patriarchal myths about divorce that keep you stuck, and empower you to release what's unnecessary, as you learn how to lay a strong foundation for launching into the next chapter of your life.
Over this evening session, we'll cover the following areas:
- Challenge culturally perpetuated stigma around divorce so you can develop a more authentic perspective on this common life transition.
- Restore balance to your body and life so you can feel grounded and remain healthy through the stress.
- Learn the practice of self-compassion so you can let go of the thoughts and feelings creating unnecessary suffering.
- Set intentions and renew vows to yourself so you can move forward with clarity and committed actions.
*This is the first in a series that focuses on the major situations that can affect our lives and how we might better approach these together.
