Jump Up! your Divorce Recovery
with Vikki in Montreal this September
You are invited to join me for a very special divorce recovery weekend retreat in Montreal September 15-16, 2018. It’s called the Jump Up! because you will supercharge your recovery from the end of your relationship.
But the Jump Up! isn’t just a retreat. It’s a way to start feeling normal again. I know how awful it feels when your relationship ends. You’re not in control of your emotions, you’re scared for the future, you just don’t feel yourself. And while you may be surviving – life is about much more that. It’s about thriving.
What to expect at the Jump Up!
The Jump Up! is a great opportunity to move your recovery ten steps forward so you can start feeling better. During two jam-packed days in beautiful Montreal, I'll be leading workshops that will help you understand what happened in your life and how to recover from the end of your marriage.
The 2017 Jump Up! took place on a gorgeous Montreal weekend. We had women from all over the U.S., Canada and even Britain. It was wonderful to watch all the women growing so quickly into a powerful support network. We talked a lot, laughed a lot, cried a little, but left feeling energized and optimistic about the future.
In the safety of a caring community of women who really understand what you've been going through, you'll learn how to:
- Understand why your husband left and why he did it the way he did
- Manage your emotions, stop obsessing about your ex and start to feel better
- Recognize that you're not crazy and you're not alone!
- Use this crisis as a springboard to change
- Revive hope for your future
In smaller breakout groups, under the guidance of a professional therapist, you’ll get a chance to work through issues and find solutions with others going through the same thing.
We will have separate breakout groups for:
- Women who are struggling with the early stages of shock, hurt, obsessing and deep grief
- Women who have moved on from the initial stages and are working on rebuilding their lives
- Women who are co-parenting with an ex
We’ll also be having some fun!
We'll celebrate together on the Saturday night at the Banquet Dinner, which will be held at an authentic French Montreal bistro. The food will be great, but the friendship will be greater!
We are offering a free optional bonus day on Monday, September 17th, so we can relax and spend the day together sightseeing around Montreal. If you can possible make it, do! It's always great fun!
After the weekend, you’ll go home feeling encouraged and refreshed, with a support network you can really count on. Come alone, come with a friend, or come with your Healing Circle. Just get yourself to Montreal and I'll take care of the rest. Join us! You'll be so glad you did.
I'm worried that I won't know anyone.
Most of the women coming won't know anyone else either. You'll be amazed at how quickly you make friends.
I'm already in therapy. Isn't this the same thing?
Therapy is wonderful but this is very different and so much more. The benefit of Vikki's expertise and the support and friendship of the other women will supercharge your healing.
I'm still pretty fragile and not sure if I'm up to an event like this.
There's a saying, "life begins at the end of your comfort zone!" You'll be surrounded by other women going through the same thing and Vikki will be there to support you. You'll be fine.
Is there an optimal age for participants? I'm afraid I may be too young (or too old).
No! We're all in this boat together and everyone bonds so strongly that age really doesn't matter.
I was not married - just in a serious relationship. Does the retreat apply to me?
Yes! The Jump Up! is for any woman recovering from the break up of a relationship.

Montreal is a world-class destination
Montreal is a great travel destination! Trip Advisor says, "Old Montreal's Parisian style streets are a wonderful place to wander - stop at an intimate bistro or sidewalk café for a taste of Europe." But don't worry - you won't have to speak French!
I know that making the decision to join us in Montreal in September is not easy, but I promise, you won't regret it! We'll all Jump Up! together!
