Workshop: Handparting/Divorce Transitions

Synopsis:
Divorce is a time of extreme transition, emotion, and chaos. It may not even be the best time for reflection on relationship patterns and choices because the emotional extremes actually affect us on a neural level. Taking the perspective that divorce is a social solution to a much bigger social problem, this workshop teaches self-care while accepting the extreme emotions that ending a marriage brings about.

Divorcing a Real Witch from Diana Rajchel

Diana Rajchel, author of Divorcing a Real Witch, draws from her own experience as a young divorcee and from experiences shared with her by others that have gone through this transition.

The workshop is based on the concept of kinetic and potential movement. During a divorce process, the inner world swings between grief and healing, passing through clarity on the way to either side. While moments of clarity may be fleeting, a few exercises can make the most of those moments. Grief and healing are processes as well as states of being; recognizing these states and working with them as teachers can help move through the process of divorce if not with less pain than certainly with greater consciousness.
