Divorce Recovery: Grief and Trauma, Healing the Past to be Present

September 15 @ 6:00 pm September 16 @ 5:00 pm

Presented by Tanya Hielke

This retreat is the first of three retreats in the Divorce Recovery Series for 2023-2024.

In this three part series, adults learn the skills and ‘rebuilding blocks’ needed to heal the grief and emotional pain associated with divorce. No one understands the emotional toll divorce places on another except the person going through the divorce. Deep sadness, anger, loneliness, and even physical pain are all part of the divorce process. Family and friends may have said to you, “the divorce is over; time to move on”, or “there are plenty of fish in the sea.” These statements, and others, are said because the person making the statement doesn’t know how to respond  to your grief. Much like a person who loses a loved one to death, we too experience the death of a relationship. Only divorced people don’t receive cards, casseroles, or cash! And no one comes to visit to see how you are doing or if you need any help. There isn’t a visitation to help us process the grief with a sea of friends and well wishers.  Instead, we can be left feeling abandoned, ashamed, and alone.

“Guiding divorced adults through the process of healing past hurts and the deep pain associated with divorce has truly been a gift in my life. I watch adults transform as they discover a new way to live, a new way to look at themselves, family, and friends, and blossom into joyful and hope-filled people whom God intended them to be.”

If you are experiencing a divorce now or have been divorced for years and still hold onto old hurt and pain, this series is for you! Trust the process. It works! Your life will change and you will feel joy and hope once more.

The remaining retreats in the series are:
February 2-3, 2024 – Divorce Recovery Retreat II: Learning to Let Go/ Living a Life of Peace
May 3-4, 2024 – Divorce Recovery Retreat III: Love and Trust, Continuing on the Healing Journey
