A Divorce Ceremony can Help!
Divorce has the ability to carry with it conflicting emotions of love and hate, intense feelings of resentment and all the emotions associated with grief.
Divorce almost always affects more than two people.
Next to death, divorce is one of the most stressful events in anyone's life and when you consider that over half of all marriages end in divorce its easy to understand why support and help is vital during the divorce process.
Finalization of divorce can seem to be no more than signing a document and posting it. I have heard it said, " So that's it...is it?" In answer to that, I would say, no, not necessarily.
A divorce ceremony or divorce ritual goes a long way to answer the question.........to finalizing the process in our minds, to providing closure.
Performing a ritual to acknowledge the end of a relationship is an important part of the healing process. Whether it is a breakup of a love affair, a special friendship or the dissolution of the legal bonds of marriage, this ceremony is intended to resolve issues, tie up loose ends, and assist greatly with the moving on process. Many emotions will surface during the ceremony and you can very gently, with love, put feelings to rest and assign them to a place in your life: the past.
Not all relationships end amicably or in a timely fashion. And for that reason some of us need assistance to enable us to move to the next phase of our lives.
....a ceremony that not only reflects your unique situation, but will go a long way to assisting with healing of the heart, forgiving and also celebrating the past and most importantly to releasing the future
One partner or two?
The ceremony can be very successfully conducted with only the one partner participating. There can still be a healing outcome but ideally the ceremony is conducted with both partners present. To have both partners present offers the greatest potential for positive closure. Friends or family may also be present to lend their support
