Divorce Chicago: Upcoming Events

Below are divorce  Chicago events for before, during and after your divorce.  I would like to say "enjoy", but maybe the real word here is "endure." Wish I could be at these "Divorce in Chicago" events as I know the folks behind each event.  Alas, I am knee deep in doing tax returns!

A Women's Life in Divorce - A Circle Conversation

There's little question that divorce is a major life event, perhaps one of the biggest you'll ever face. It's likely to spell "change" for your lifestyle, your hopes and dreams, your children's lives, and much more. Yet this also can be a time to look ahead to the next chapter of life - an exciting new start.

With these thoughts in mind, we ask you to join us for a truly special experience. Our evening will begin with the monologue "13 Things About Ed Carpolotti" from the comedic trilogy, "Three Viewings." This will be presented by June Miller of Oil Lamp Theater.

Then we will gather in a circle, a practice as old as humankind. It is a new way for women to start talking authentically about divorce. In a circle, we provide a safe space to talk about whatever divorce issues are on your mind. We'll talk about our financial recovery and planning for the future. We'll talk about our values, our well-being, our self-worth. We talk about what matters, what has worked, and what hasn't.

When we meet in a circle, everyone can be seen and heard, and amazing things can happen. We get healthier, gain insights from others that help us in our own lives, and find new balance. We learn. Connect. Change a behavior. Get unstuck. Gain courage.

Facilitators for this meeting
Conversation Host and Social Architect - Lina Cramer Wisdom Exchange

June Miller, Monologist, Oil Lamp Theater

Sharon Count, Financial Advisor,
