About the Divorce Cleanse Gathering:
Whether you're going through a divorce or coming to the end of a long term relationship, you are bound to feel disoriented and stressed out. The symptoms of a marital ending are very similar to PTSD, and the pain of divorce is very connected to shattered dreams and the disillusionment that comes with the crushed fantasies of forever.
This is not simply a life transition, but a trauma requiring urgent care and special attention.
It’s completely normal to feel like you’re falling apart since the life you were counting on has disappeared before your very eyes. This kind of challenging life experience takes a toll on your mental health, but it also puts your body through the ringer as you deal with the anxiety, fear, and uncertainty.
Here’s the truth:
The trappings of stigma, shame, and societal expectations around divorce can become your worst enemy. The trick to getting through this life transition is doing the hard psychological work of deconstructing the fantasies and myths that will surely keep you stuck in the past.
When you become consumed and overwhelmed with “what happened” you neglect your own self-care, which can lead to all sorts of negative consequences. Not eating properly, drinking too much alcohol, not sleeping, and binging on sugar are common coping mechanisms that add to the toxicity you’re already dealing with.
You need to build your foundation for healing and growth beyond divorce.
When you're witnessed by others who understand your experience, and when you give yourself the ample time for reflection and process, the end of your marriage becomes a transformative rite of passage as opposed to a dead end. Learning the skills of emotional and physical self-care through divorce is fundamental to having a full recovery.
You do not have to make a u-turn and head back to the beginning to start over. You need to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, assess your wounds, and begin the journey back to your whole self.
This educational and open process support group includes:
An exclusive Divorce Manifesto and daily email inspirations to keep you on track.
Survival strategies for dealing with a difficult Ex, and daily coping practices for reducing stress.
Nutritional advice, dietary plans, herbal remedies, recipes, and weekly snacks that support your body and brain through the stress of divorce.
New perspectives on your current situation to challenge the negative stigma and social norms that keep you stuck and in a state of shame.
Holistic and spiritually based remedies and practices including art therapy, tarot card readings, poetry, and journaling to help you unearth and resolve emotions like anger, sadness, fear and loneliness.
Concrete tools that help you rediscover your sense of self so you can create a new narrative, and finally answer the question "who am I now?"
An incredible support system of like-minded women, a safe and non-judgmental space to process, and newfound friendships to last a lifetime.

“I just received the divorce manifesto and it is excellent; it reflects almost exactly what I've experienced; it is validating, hopeful, and empowering to hear/read those words of truth. It is so clear that you have been through the experience. Thank you so much for hosting this group. I have needed a support group for a while and am grateful to have found yours.”
