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, 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, 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;

Cost – Our registration fees do not actually cover the cost of the Seminar, 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 not attend the seminar simply because their divorce has put them in a tough spot financially. So, below our registration fee boxes you will notice an additional box. By checking this box, you can pay whatever amount you can afford, and if right now that is zero, simply write zero in the box.

FYI: No one attending the seminar, table leaders, volunteers that will sign you in and seat you, or speakers will know who is attending for free, or who paid the full registration fee. Our sign in sheets simply list everyone who is registered without noting if fees were paid or not.
