So you know you want to feel better and get over this stupid divorce and start living the life you want. But it hasn’t happened yet. Right?

  • Do you still often feel afraid, lonely, defeated and overwhelmed because of your divorce?

  • Are you secretly dreading that ridiculous, fake love holiday where you know you’ll have to pretend to be okay, but you really aren’t?

Conference Logistics

This conference is a place where you can come for two days and learn proven steps to stop obsessing about what might have been and start creating a good, new life! You want to make a positive impact on your kids, your family and your friends … and you’re trying your best . But since you didn’t expect this and no one ever gives lessons on divorce …. most of the time women are just left to struggle on their own.

Here’s the good news! We have in this one weekend, life-transforming people and systems to help you take some giant leaps forward on your recovery journey. And you make that leap with a group of women who get it. Who know about the stupid stuff you’ve done or said. It’s a very exciting and effective and even fun way to grow past the despair and learn lessons from it that will help you in the future! And instead of feeling isolated and alone, you’ll be embraced and encouraged the whole weekend. And that means you’ll be able to cope and stay connected even after the event is done!
