GG Episode 20: Divorcing Wisely

Divorce is almost as much a part of life as marriage. Yet most couples are in the dark about pro-social, non-toxic approaches to divorce. Enter Gabrielle Hartley, attorney, mediator and co-author of Better Apart, a practical guide for skillfully executing a divorce and emerging a wiser, more compassionate and resilient human being. The uniqueness of this approach comes from expert integration of sound legal wisdom and teachings on skillful means from yogic and Buddhist philosophies. You will clearly detect my deep appreciation for Gabrielle and this book, as it has radically simplified the way I counsel patients who find themselves in divorce pre-contemplation or ultimately deciding to separate and/or divorce. This episode is inspiring and informative. I ask many difficult questions, many of which I often hear as a Marriage and Family Therapist; particularly in Silicon Valley where divorce can be ugly, protracted and wreak financial devastation and emotional turmoil for all involved parties.
