Beginning Experience Weekend

Beginning Experience® Weekend

The B.E. Weekend is a weekend program that helps men and women recover from the loss of their spouse. It is a more intense program than Coping and it provides the opportunity for a person to “close the door” on the past relationship. It also allows time to examine present life and to begin plans for the future.

The weekend is designed to be a time of closure on the past and a new beginning in the present. It is meant for persons who are beyond the initial shock stage of being overwhelmed by the anger and despair which usually follows the loss of one’s spouse. A person should be beyond the initial rejection and to the point of desiring a new beginning.

The B.E. Weekend uses the technique of personal reflection and a method of dialog specially adapted for the formerly married. The dialog is in small groups that are warm, supportive, and that form a community of real fellowship, by using a gentle, simple and non‑threatening method. The B.E. Weekend experience is quiet, reflective, and spiritual.

A specifically trained team leads the participants through the weekend program which consists of presentations by the team, personal and private reflection, and small group discussion. All dialog is kept strictly confidential.
