Jump Up! Divorce Recovery Retreat in Montreal

Jump Up! your Divorce Recovery
with Vikki in Montreal this September


You are invited to join me for a very special divorce recovery retreat in Montreal September 14 & 15, 2019. It’s called the Jump Up! because you will move to the next level in your recovery from the end of your relationship.

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.

There are no words to describe the feeling of being among other women that truly understand what I have been through. We formed a tight, loving, heartbroken, but absolutely strong and supportive community. We only had two days, but I could swear I have known them all of my life. I know I found lifelong friends. As a result of being there, I have found peace for the first time in two years. I am totally looking forward to the future, knowing I can choose to make it as wonderful as I can!
— Kathy from Virginia

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 2018 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

Under my guidance, you’ll get a chance to work through issues and find solutions with others going through the same thing.

The Jump Up! is appropriate for:

  • Women who are struggling with the early stages of shock, hurt, obsessing and deep grief following the end of the marriage

  • Women who have moved on from the initial stages and are working on rebuilding their lives

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 the Monday following the Retreat, 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 really really enjoyed the retreat. It was the first time in a long time I had so much fun, concentrating on me and the future. I loved being with the women - they were delightful! The plans you made were outstanding. I couldn’t think of anything more.
— Pat from Illinois
Vikki promised that I would feel better after the retreat. She totally came through! I believe it changed the trajectory of my recovery. GO! If you possible can.
— Mary from Ontario



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 my 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.

The experience was transformational. Sharing my story and hearing those of others created a special, healing bond. Genuine love and support coupled with such raw honesty - it was truly amazing and I am so grateful for the privilege of attending.
— Brenda from New Jersey

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! 

Big hug!


Attending the Jump Up! really helped me to shift my mindset from ‘look at what happened to me!’ to ‘look how far I’ve come and watch what I can do’. I started on day one all about the hurt and scared about the future. I left the second day thinking that ‘yes, this is what happened to me but I don’t have to let it define me’. I learned techniques to keep me moving forward, met amazing women and heard their stories, shared their grief and celebrated their successes!
