No matter how you got here, the experience of divorce represents a kind of initiation — a marked departure from a once clearly-marked map into a wild and unruly forest. How we choose to enter the forest, and be in it, says a lot about who we will be when we eventually emerge from it.

In this evening workshop, we will meet each other right where we are.

Through writing, contemplation, and bearing witness, we’ll explore ideas of grief and anger, despair and forgiveness, freedom and gratitude. We’ll clear out what needs clearing out, in order that we might be sufficiently prepared to welcome what’s longing to come to us next.
