Are you grieving the loss of a spouse through separation, divorce or death? Are you having trouble accepting that you no longer have a partner? Is there some unresolved anger you need to deal with? Have you run out of friends or family members to whom you can tell your story? Are you wishing you could just move on? If you've answered "YES" to one or all of these questions, perhaps it's time to reach out for help and call on your friends at Beginning Experience. Most of us have been right where you are. We know the pain of separation, divorce or death and we've made our way through it to a new beginning. Beginning Experience (BE) is an international support program for divorced, separated and widowed individuals and their families. It is a peer ministry intended to facilitate the resolution of the grief surrounding the breakup of a marriage/ relationship and to promote healing. The program is both psychologically and spiritually sound, having been developed by respected professionals in ministry, grief psychology and education. We who help facilitate the programs are former participants who are further along in the healing process. We have personally benefited from Beginning Experience, and are now able to "give back." Having been in the same place as you, we are uniquely equipped to be good listeners, to empathize and to encourage you through the grief process.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
