Divorce is a disruption of a narrative that began with marriage. This class is designed for you to write your divorce narrative to process the relationship and divorce, and to move to the next chapter of your life. As a result of your impending or actual divorce, you must reframe your perceptions of the relationship, carefully examine your actions and values, and rewrite what may have been your fundamental ideas that you held about your life, the society in which you live, and the truths you deeply believed.
This class is suitable for women at any stage of the divorce process, whether you are in the midst of a divorce, recently concluded a divorce, have decided to divorce, or have been divorced for decades. Every individual has unique life experiences that must be acknowledged and respected. There is no single and correct way to experience divorce. Our stories are all different; our stories are all worthy. How do we rewrite our stories when we are faced with a different ending? We can journey to the future if we understand our past, reframe our history and step into a narrative that allows us to be more of who we are.
The more clearly we write, the better we are able to see who we were, who we are, and who we can become. This document serves an important role during the divorce process when we find ourselves endlessly repeating the story to various parties for legal, health, or emotional reasons. This story is for you to set the record straight—in your mind. This class will give you guidelines about how to write your divorce narrative, what is important for you to include and why, and enable you to move in a meaningful way to the next chapter of your new life.
Please note that this story is not a legal document. We will approach this story through the lens of literature, expression, and emotional truth-telling.
