What we're about

Our Group for Women in Transition

Do you cringe when you hear the word "divorce"? Does it sound like failure or worse yet a huge fight? Would you like to exit your marriage with dignity and compassion? Then we invite you to join us in Getting Unmarried™, and help us change the landscape of divorce.

Our purpose is to create community, provide a place of support, and present an opportunity to learn from others in a nurturing environment. Together we will discover how to minimize the fighting and upheaval, and maximize the well-being and the considered actions.

This is a group for anyone who wants to divorce differently -- whether you are thinking about ending your marriage, in the process of, or transitioning to life after the split. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment that pulls us all forward, and changes the concept of divorce for the better.

We will meet twice a month to address the group's concerns, explore options, share knowledge in the form of a short talk, reflect, and leave with some positive action steps, and inspirational wisdom.

Join this group so you can meet other people going through divorce in a thoughtful and conscious manner. You will find that you are not alone, and you will be inspired to move through this process with hope and dignity.

We meet in the Library or the Renaissance Room on the ground floor of the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Monica at 1220 2nd Street. Both rooms are open and airy, and easily hold 20 people or more. There is ample public parking directly across the street in the parking structure. We try to meet approximately every two weeks, mostly on Thursdays (to avoid the Farmer's Market traffic!).
