There are 8 peace practices which are free and easy to practice every day. They’ll help you stay sane no matter what, and we all know that sanity is at a premium at the moment.
Sure, we’ve all felt this way at times. But we also know what it does to our blood pressure and ability to think creatively and problem solve.
Using the 8 peace practices will help you get some peace even in the most difficult of times. Sure, they help during your divorce, but they also help when you’re stuck in traffic or in a meeting with co-workers.
Divorce mediation helps keep the peace in your family–after all, you are still a family even if you’re divorced. You have the opportunity to have an uncontested divorce, California or elsewhere, when you mediate instead of litigating. Mediators help you talk to each other and say what you really mean without getting shut down. Most will give you legal information and help you make a solid decision that works for you, your spouse, and your children.
And yes, the settlement needs to work for your spouse or he or she won’t sign it. And for YOU to get a settlement, your spouse has to sign.
Sometimes people think mediation is all about peace and love and that mediators spend all their time talking about people’s feelings. That’s only partially true.
Of course feelings are important. After all, you’re talking about everything you care anything about when you’re mediating: your future, your past, your financial security, how you’ll raise your children. There’s no getting around it. Divorce includes feelings.
It also includes the legal part, and that needs to be informed, thoughtful, and thorough.
You need both: a successful legal divorce, and a successful emotional divorce.
The 8 Peace Practices will help you get there.
