Listening to Your Heart: Creating Your Life After Divorce – a One-Day Workshop

file1731290885802.jpg

A highly experiential, transformational workshop for people going through the heartbreak of separation and divorce.

Saturday, January 19, 2019

“When you are going through a divorce, you enter into a space in your life where all kinds of things are going to occur. The tension you feel inside of this space is an opportunity. It’s like having emotional vertigo, which is a necessary component for making big shifts and changes in your life. It doesn’t look like an opportunity at first. You just want the hurting to stop and for others to be reasonable. That’s not happening. What IS happening is a massive opening into a world of new possibilities.”

~Trace Hobson

Did you lose yourself in your marriage?

Now that it’s over, are you left feeling less sure of yourself, less confident in your life decisions, and afraid to move forward for fear of making another “mistake”?

When you decided to marry, you took a leap of faith that your love would last forever, that it would see you through thick and thin, sickness, health, prosperity, and financial stress, good times and bad. As you said “I do,” you trusted your heart because it felt “right” to enter into this committed partnership.

Now that you are in the process of completing your marriage through divorce, it’s common to enter into doubt about why you married in the first place. Not only do you doubt your decision, you doubt your ability to make good decisions when it comes to love and partnership.

Here’s what you may be telling yourself as you are trying to put your life back together:

I can’t trust my heart - it got me in this mess in the first place.

While it may feel like this is your truth, we will take a look at how you have made decisions in the past - often from fear-based thinking. If you create your new life post-divorce from a place of hurt, anger, fear, it’s likely that you will be living in a default future that is not of your choosing.

We will take another approach - in this workshop, you will learn about the 3 Intelligences and how to align your head, heart, and body to make clear choices that create a future based on YOUR vision, YOUR values, and YOUR heartfelt desires. You’ll learn to listen to your heart - that wise inner voice that you DO have - and let it lead you into a life of love and creativity.

We will explore how to live in the land of possibility instead of creating negative future fantasies that disempower you.

We will also continue the work done in our first workshop with the energy of forgiveness through continuing to open your heart to yourself, your loved ones, and your ex, all in service to your freedom. Freedom is the place where you can be the creator of your new life. It’s also the place where you can be open and receptive to finding love again.

You CAN harness the energy of this transition to create a transformational opportunity for you and your family.

The day provides significant opportunities for you to:

  • Learn who you are and what you want to create for your new life on the other side of your divorce

  • be introduced to new perspectives to shift your thinking

  • be coached through your fears and limiting beliefs

  • let go of the old story of the past and become the author of your new one

  • connect with others going through similar experiences

  • gain insights and skills that will last a lifetime

You’ll be encouraged to set new goals that will move you forward into your new life – wholeheartedly living and loving again. We’ll also have fun in the process. You’ll become part of a community that is committed to helping each other through this difficult time.

Certified Transformational Coach

carriedoubts-200.jpg

Carrie Doubts supports people who are dealing with difficult relationships, breakups, and divorces to go through the painful, yet necessary steps for rebuilding their lives after their loss. Her passion is helping men and women move beyond the drama and trauma of the ending of a significant relationship and into creating new lives and new dreams for themselves and their families.

Carrie’s journey to do this work began when her marriage of 13 years ended in divorce. Like many of you, she found it difficult to “get over it” and “just move on.” Carrie was in excruciating pain and felt like a complete failure. She also knew that she needed to learn from this experience so that she could avoid repeating the same mistakes in the future. Carrie felt compelled to create something meaningful and beautiful out of this pain, so she immersed herself in self-development and personal growth.

Carrie went back to school and earned a Master of Arts in Spiritual Psychology with an Emphasis in Consciousness, Health, and Healing from the University of Santa Monica. After studying to be a Psychologist (and deciding that this was not the career for her) she earned her professional coaching certification from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). She is also a Certified Grief Counselor by the American Academy of Grief Counseling. Carrie holds the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential with International Coach Federation (ICF).

Carrie is dedicated to empowering, guiding, and supporting men and women in making choices throughout the process of completing their relationships that honor their values, their families, and the loving that was once a pivotal part of their lives.

“The healing of our present woundedness may lie in recognizing and reclaiming the capacity we all have to heal each other, the enormous power in the simplest of human relationships: the strength of touch, the blessing of forgiveness, the grace of someone else taking you as you are and finding in you an unexpected goodness.”

~Rachel Naomi Remen

Divorce is one of the most painful experiences you will face in life. Let this divorce be your last. Let it be the gateway to a healthier and happier relationship WITH YOURSELF first and foremost.

Opening Your Heart: Getting Past the Pain of your Divorce – A Full-Day Workshop

OPENING YOUR HEART_ GETTING PAST THE PAIN OF YOUR DIVORCEA FULL-DAY WORKSHOP (1).png

A highly experiential, transformational workshop for people going through the heartbreak of separation and divorce.

Saturday, November 10, 2018

“Every relationship only has a moment more to complete itself…Most relationships disappear like Narcissus into the denser realms of consciousness. Indeed, even death cannot break a bond like the disunion of hearts. The loss of a desired relationship through divorce, because it has an added element of abandonment, can be yet more painful that a loss through death…Death [of a loved one] breaks the human heart, but abandonment shreds it.”

~Stephen Levine

  • Has your heart been run through the shredder as you go through your painful breakup, separation, and/or divorce? 
  • Are you unsure of who you are, what you want, feeling stuck in limbo between what has ended and what is yet to begin? 
  • Has your bleeding heart been left for dead in the driveway of your home as your ex speeds off towards his/her new life without you? 
  • Do you fear that you will become bitter and close your heart in reaction to being hurt? 
  • Are you certain, yet afraid, that you will never love again and will be destined to live the rest of your life in loneliness and despair?

Reflecting on my own experience of my divorce 20 years ago, one thing is for certain. It was absolute hell. And, I managed to get through it. My divorce was a catalyst for me to begin on a path of self-development, healing, and growth that ultimately led to a transformation for me both personally and professionally.

And, I went through it mostly on my own. I wish I had had the kind of support that is offered at this workshop during that heart-wrenching time.

The sad truth is that it’s really challenging to find the right kind of support when you are in the process of dismantling your marriage, your family core, your life. Friends who you thought would be there aren't. Family is in upheaval and not necessarily available to you due to their own pain. Best friends – who are usually amazing – will lose their capacity for unconditional acceptance of where you are in time. People judge you. They don’t understand. 

On their own, the sad, depressed and lost divorcing person will often flounder. And there seems to be a magic that happens when two or more divorcing people get together in community to meet and express their grief and loss, share their stories, and support one another in the journey.

If you are struggling with the emotional roller coaster of divorce, this one-day workshop is an opportunity to connect with other people who are going through what you are experiencing AND to learn how to move beyond whatever is having you feeling stuck, hurt, angry, etc. 

You don't have to do it alone.

The day provides significant opportunities for you to:

  • be heard, validated, and accepted just as you are
  • be introduced to new perspectives to shift your thinking
  • be coached through your fears and limiting beliefs
  • let go of the old story of the past and become the author of your new one
  • connect with others going through similar experiences
  • gain insights and skills that will last a lifetime

You’ll be encouraged to set new goals that will move you forward into your new life – wholeheartedly living and loving again. We’ll also have fun in the process. You’ll become part of a community that is committed to helping each other through this difficult time.

The Whole Heart - A Three-Month Divorce Coaching Program

to Apr 12

The Whole Heart - A Three-Month Divorce Coaching Program

Going through a divorce, what kind of support do you really need? Hint: Sympathy can only get you so far on the transformational journey you are navigating.

We get it. When you have your friends telling you it’s time to “move on” after your divorce, you long for a compassionate presence to accept you the way you are. Just being able to talk to someone and have him/her really listen to you, without needing you to be “better” or “fixed” seems impossible. So you suck it up and say “I’m fine” when people ask you how you are doing. You’ve learned they don’t want to hear about how you are really feeling. Finding people who sympathize with you when you are in the pit of despair is great. And, this by itself won’t get you out of the pit. Chances are, people who are overly sympathetic will climb down in there with you so you won’t be alone. Then there are two of you down in there. This is not helping. Here’s what this group is about. There is compassion, acceptance, and understanding to be found here. And, you’ll learn new skills to help yourself get out of the pit of despair and start walking towards your better future. You’ll learn what’s really true and whole about you and start to draw on your own inner strengths 2 and resources as you climb upward.

When you feel that your heart has been broken by this divorce – and the losses that come with it – through participating in this program, you will discover your way back to wholeheartedly participating in your life again. Your heart remembers how to be whole and it will heal. We will start the process by asking you powerful questions - some that are very different from the kinds of questions you are used to hearing. And you’ll hear yourself answering them from a very different place inside that you are used to accessing: your Authentic Self. You’ll be held in a very safe space to do this kind of deep exploration into the transformational opportunity that divorce has presented to you and to your family. We believe that the way to heal is to walk into and through the pain, transforming it into strength through the presence of love.

 Chasing the Unicorn of Work/Life Balance Live Free Workshop

Chasing the Unicorn of Work/Life Balance Live Free Workshop

  • Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Huenefeld Tower Room (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
Chasing the Unicorn of Work/Life Balance

I'm looking at my calendar, my to do list, and that familiar feeling is rising up from my chest, grabbing me by the throat, and paralyzingly me with fear. "I've got to get a better handle on all this," I tell myself, feeling completely overwhelmed. "How am I going to get it all done?" Can you see yourself in that scenario?

Confession time: I usually end up sacrificing the self-care routines, yoga, meditation, journalling, etc. Yep, all that stuff I tell my clients they need to make time for. So, not only am I feeling overwhelmed, but there's also judgment of myself as not "walking my talk.”

It’s all about choice. That means it’s an inside job – making self-honoring choices and then having the courage to stand in those choices, no matter what the outside world demands.

I will be hosting a half-day workshop for women only that is dedicated to giving up the idea that we can stalk, hunt, capture, and tame the mythical beast of Work/Life Balance. Together, we’ll explore, discover, take a deep dive into YOU and see what’s underneath the surface of this need to be in a frenzy of doing. You’ll also learn how to:

  • Embrace the power of slowing down, when you think you need so speed up
  • Stop buying into the idea that you have to do everything yourself
  • Get comfortable saying “No” to what you don’t want so you can say “Yes” to what you do want

Space is limited to 40 participants. To hold your space for this special day, send me an email at carrie@lifesnextchaptercoaching.com, with "Workshop RSVP" in the subject.

Cost is FREE!

Let’s get this unrealistic expectation about Work/Life Balance handled.

Are you feeling blindsided by your spouse’s decision to leave?  Have you finally chosen to divorce but struggling with your choice and the fear of the future?

  • Are you deep in pain & devastation?
  • Feeling hopeless?
  • Bitter and resentful?

Survival Series Divorce Support Group

The opportunity to reinvent yourself during divorce is a remarkable one, even if at first it is a hellish experience.  Divorce is a challenging journey on many levels. The many new responsibilities, decisions, and actions you are called upon to take can be overwhelming.  It's difficult to envision a future when you feel like you are drowning in the present. Yet, there is possibility for a great and positive change through the 'adventure' of divorce, regardless of how daunting and scary it seems. 

Our group is designed to support men and women on exactly this adventure and at all stages of process. We are offering a series of group gatherings called The Survival Series, launching this October in the Cincinnati area.

DATES AND TOPICS

Session #1 on Wednesday, October 7:  Surviving the Suck of Divorce & Turning Pain to Gain

Session #2 on Wednesday, October 28: Acknowledging Your Choices & Personal Responsibility

Session #3 on Wednesday, November 11:  The Art of Detachment: Letting Go of Judgement

Session #4 on Wednesday, December 2:  Learning to Reframe: Adjusting Your Perspective
