Towson Divorce Lawyers Discuss “Conscious Uncoupling: A Modern Approach to Life after Divorce”

Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of Conscious Uncoupling, offers a modern method of dealing with the aftermath of divorce; one that leads to empowerment and peace for those going through the end of a relationship. Her unique approach involves a five-step process that replaces anger and resentment with emotional freedom and mutual respect. Woodward Thomas focuses on helping those in the emotional turmoil of a break up approach it with decency and honor, helping each individual appreciate the good memories of their union and all it had to offer them.

The five step process of “uncoupling” begins with finding emotional freedom, which leads the individual to reclaim their personal power and life. The steps include breaking the patterns of divorce that so often involve resentment, blaming, and turmoil. Woodward Thomas’ approach is to heal the heart as you go through the process of breaking up. Another step teaches one to become a “love alchemist” that leads to the final step in the process, which is to create what she calls, “Your Happily Even After” life.

As couples or just individuals learn to approach each stage of the breakup with goodwill and generosity, the process becomes one of peace and kind-heartedness. By focusing on the good aspects of the relationship and the initial period of happiness that was present in the beginning, letting go becomes a time of appreciation for what the couple once shared. The author even suggests that couples offer each other a “parting gift” that can defuse feelings of bitterness and revenge.

The author calls on her own experiences with her parents’ divorce, along with her own personal divorce to create the Conscious Uncoupling process. When faced with the end of her own marriage, she was motivated to finding a way to become “unmarried.” She wanted to preserve the family that had been created by initiating a new relationship based on trust and love for each other. Instead of looking at her relationship as a “failed marriage,” she instead learned to appreciate the new relationship she has with her ex-husband.

Though Woodward Thomas acknowledges that divorce has to be a legal process, she insists that her five step method will allow both individuals to go through the process without an air of animosity. By empowering those involved to choose kindness and dignity, they can go through the breakup peacefully, despite how the other person chooses to act.
