I think the Beginning Experience programme is very well designed and facilitated.  It’s very powerful in its structure and as I’ve reflected on my own experience, believe it to be an excellent programme to assist people to move on with some new tools in place and begin healing from the loss of a spouse, and separation and divorce.

 One of the things I loved about the weekend was that I was able to acknowledge and process aspects of my own grief in a safe and empathetic environment as well as I had the privilege of others trusting me with their own personal stories.  Because of the trust built and confidentiality of the programme, I believe this allows and enables personal healing to take place. I also found the personal reflection times a powerful tool to help with this healing process.

 My group was so encouraging, honouring and supportive of me. It was a place of safety, sharing, confidentiality, growth, laughter, tears and fun where we were held sensitively and respectfully and where friendships were made.

I would certainly recommend the Beginning Experience weekend to others who are in a season of loss, separation or divorce and believe that everyone who participates in this retreat, will come out with a renewed vigour and strength as well as some effective tools to assist their own healing journey.

They are impressed with our support

I had divorced and Beginning Experience sounded like a way to regain my self-image. I found just what I needed - the hope that I could recover and start my life again.
It had been two years since my husband's death. I saw a notice in my church bulletin and decided to try it. I needed healing and this was where I found it.
Three years after my husband's death, I thought I was coping pretty well. I was so wrong. Beginning Experience changed me into a much happier person.
As a widow of 7 years, I was skeptical about going to Beginning Experience. I felt no one would understand my pain. The weekend literally saved my life. I found the peace I so longed for.
