Join Vikki Stark this May on a Divorce Recovery Retreat in Sedona, Arizona.

What people have to say about the Sedona Retreat

I felt that Vikki took us through a well-planned journey of emotions. Each segment and activity took us to a different place, a healing place. The beautiful setting, the sharing, the workshops...it was an experience that I'll never forget and a turning point for me. Anyone who feels lost in her pain and emotions would greatly benefit from this healing experience.

If you are considering attending the Retreat but are hesitant...don't be! JUST DO IT!! No matter at what stage you are in the process of recovery (and it IS a process), you will (reluctantly!) leave the Retreat feeling so much better about yourself. You will feel empowered with tools, skills and perhaps most importantly, the support of a community of like-minded women who know exactly what you're going through because they themselves are walking that hard mile in your shoes...

The best gift I could have given myself was the time at retreat with Vikki and the other amazing women who participated. I don't feel so alone, afraid or hopeless anymore. So worth attending!

It was a vibrant, productive collection of minds and spirits all working toward healing ourselves and supporting the healing of other retreat participants. The type of work that can only be done in a safe and love based community. Thank you Vikki, and all the other WONDERFUL and inspiring women who were in attendance for sharing your wisdom, pain and love.

The Support You Need to Bounce Back Better from Heartbreak

With Vikki Stark, internationally known divorce recovery expert.

At the Sedona Retreat, I will help you recover from the end of your marriage, no matter what stage you're at. We’ll be working together in daily workshops to help you understand what happened that led to the end of your marriage, how you can stop obsessing and how you can let go and move on. Through participating in the Retreat, you will start to feel better and learn how to turn this crisis of abandonment into an opportunity for growth and change.

We'll also be exploring the magnificent landscape around Sedona, with hikes and trips to the red rocks and other events. We'll spend one afternoon with Joseph White Wolf, a shaman who will take us to a healing circle in the hills and conduct a ceremony to help you recover and soothe your soul. Here's a quote from Joseph's blog:

Letting go is not letting go...It's coming to the knowledge and understanding that it's already gone...The healing sets in when you discover different ways of seeing it...

Plus you will meet other women going through the same thing and form deep friendships that will support you, even after you return home. We will be a small group (at the most, 14) that will add to the intimacy and openness.

This is the fourth time I am hosting a Sedona Retreat. I can say, guaranteed, that if you attend, you will leave feeling much better. You will have a different perspective on your life and will have jumped ahead many steps towards recovery.

Big hug,
