Divorce is messy, it's an incredibly anxious time, and there's a reason it's said that - as far as life events go - it is right up there with death on a scale of deeply unsettling and life altering events.
I don't speak from experience, being year number 17 into my marriage, but I completely feel for and understand the deep grief felt by couples who separate and go on to divorce, witnessing first hand that pain with friends around me who have gone through this tumultuous time.
What I can see is that my buddies need a helping hand in myriad ways - deep conversations that include practical solutions, experts who really know their stuff to help navigate what to do next, and a camaraderie with people who are in your position to help you through the dark times by sharing war stories.
When I came across this story opportunity, to deep dive into how to navigate divorce and come out of the other side (granted, the after effects of the other side can last forever) with sanity, grace, and actual tools, I leapt at the chance to spread the word and help my pals.
Enter a retreat designed by a legal pro, and with a list of speaker who are not there to lecture, instead guide and help guide you for the road ahead.
The Detox Your Divorce Retreat is designed to assist you with navigating your divorce and separation, and help you with the support you need.
