Divorce & Beyond: One Day Sessions (lunch included) 11.04.2023
8:15AM – 1:00PM – Breakout Sessions
1:10PM-2:30PM – 30th Anniversary Luncheon
DIVORCE HURTS, BUT WE CAN HELP! If you are separated from your spouse, going through a divorce, or are divorced, we encourage you to attend this event.
We understand the feelings of rejection, anger, fear, isolation, betrayal, guilt and helplessness that can result from divorce. You may feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster – one day you feel fine, the next day you feel hopeless. 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.
Divorce & Beyond addresses these issues in a safe, supportive environment. People are seated at tables (men and women are at separate tables for the main seminar) 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 workshops during the sessions and the optional support groups that meet after the sessions are co-ed. Each support group has a male and a female facilitator, enabling us to learn from one another.

Our $25 registration fee does not actually cover the cost of the sessions, but thanks to generous support from our partner churches and individual donors, we are able keep our registration fees low. We are very committed to helping those experiencing divorce, whether fees are in the budget or not.
We never want someone to be unable to attend the sessions simply because their divorce has put them in a tough spot financially. Our registration includes a Scholarship option which allows us to provide scholarships when needed. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com if you have a scholarship need or have any questions.
In celebration of 30 years of the Divorce & Beyond ministry, we invite you to join us for a FREE anniversary luncheon reunion on Saturday, November 4th. All are welcomed! Please RSVP to reserve your spot. We will be sharing stories, breaking bread together, and connecting for a very special reunion.

If you are unable to attend one of our seminars, there is another option! We now offer a Divorce and Beyond ONLINE COURSE through Relational Peace University. The Divorce and Beyond course is designed to be taken over several weeks, with questions and actions to help implement all you are learning on the journey of recovery.

“Divorce & Beyond is life-changing and should be more publicized and available like the famous Al-Anon and 12-step programs. In one day, I’ve learned more than I have in 4 years being divorced.”
