Coping with Life Alone  . . . In the Beginning

Program Offers Support for the Loss of a Marriage Relationship

If you are widowed, separated, or divorced and want help in resolving the pain and grief of losing the marriage relationship and create a more peace-filled future, consider attending a Beginning Experience one-day event. The next one, entitled Coping with Life Alone…In the Beginning, will take place Saturday, June 19 either in person or via zoom.

It consists of a series of presentations given by trained peer ministers who share their own experiences of grief, healing, and closure following the loss of the marriage relationship. Presentations are given by both a widowed and a divorced person who share their personal yet different perspectives on similar types of feelings. Each talk is followed by personal, private reflection for participants to write on a series of guided questions geared toward helping them identify the feelings they are experiencing.

For more information about this event or Beginning Experience weekends, call Victoria A. at 860-993-5469 or email info@BeginningExperieincect.org or visit their website at BeginningExperienceCT.org
