Welcome to Divorce Well, a fresh new and holistic approach to support for those experiencing divorce or separation.
Our goal is to create a diverse and inclusive community that integrates a healthy approach to healing, self-care and growth that expands beyond our regular support group meetings – one which provides a safe and healing space to transform both personally and socially and welcomes all levels of involvement. We currently are, or soon wil be, offering Healing Yoga; Mindfulness Workshops; Art Therapy; Wellness Retreats; Educational Classes, etc. specifically designed for individuals experiencing divorce or separation.
Co-founders Brooks Baldwin and Elisa Behrens have established Divorce Well in order to create a supportive and loving community for those experiencing divorce or separation in which holistic self-care and support is steeped in a generous dose of dignity and grace, with the expectation that transformation (or at least an enhanced outlook on life!) of each participant is a distinct reality.
We've both experienced divorce and single motherhood, and are uniquely well-seasoned in the world of divorce and separation (in fact, Brooks became a Collaborative Divorce Attorney following her divorce) and are driven by our passion to reach out to and come alongside individuals who are experiencing this disorienting and decidedly solitary rite of passage.
As we create and grow this encouraging and caring community, our focus is on holistic self-care, self-awareness and support of others – all steeped in a generous concoction of dignity and grace. And eventually, it is our hope that each participant will come to find that personal transformation (or at least an enhanced outlook on life!) becomes a distinct reality.
Along the way, we’ll encourage all to listen, to share, and to “feel all the feels” associated with divorce or separation – including grief, anger, uncertainty, fear, relief, or a rich combination of all, we’ll work together to process, digest, and heal from this thing called divorce.
Our Monthly Divorce Support Group meets at Sacred Rain Healing Center in Ballard, while our wellness programming is offered in at various venues in Ballard, Shoreline, and University Distrtict as detailed in the event information links.
