Spiritual Divorce Support Group

 

Are you seeking healing and discernment as you go through your divorce or as you begin your new life as a single woman? Sometimes looking to something beyond ourselves, can be of help. Faith traditions such as Buddhism, Judaism and Christianity offer spiritual practices and rituals that can help us heal and help us tap into our own inner wisdom as we decide what paths to take in the future. This group will explore healing practices and rituals from a variety of religious traditions. We will also grapple with questions such as…. Where is God in the midst of an ugly divorce?... How does one have faith during hard times?... What do the various faith traditions say about forgiveness? Join us for this time of spiritual healing.
