Summary of the Visions Anew 50th Divorce Survival Retreat

Suffice it to say that the event was amazing, but you can hear it directly from some of the attendees.

  • “When I first arrived, I was a big jumble of mess. I felt so lost and alone. I have now gained the knowledge and bond to be strong and continue on. I have gained the clarity and courage to stand up for myself.”
  • “I got so much validation as well as encouragement and support. I feel stronger than ever that no matter what I decide, I have friends for support and I will be O.K. Thank you!”
  • “I now know I’m not in this alone. It was great to meet and connect with other women going through the same thing and have resources to use going forward.”
  • “I feel at peace. I am strong. I have knowledge now. I have a true support family.”

The next Divorce Survival Weekend Retreat is February 13-15, 2015. Click here to sign up.
