Education & Healing Through Divorce

Local Workshops & Weekend Retreats:

Emabarking on a separation and/or divorce can feel terrifying. There are likely so many questions swirling in your mind, and everyone has advice for you. There are countless horror stories that well-meaning friends share and often misinformation floating around the Internet. It feels overwhelming! Pascha understands this, both personally and professionally.

Pascha believes that legal education about the divorce process is not only empowering, it can also can alleviate so much fear about the next steps. 

The traditional divorce process is often traumatizing and, in many cases, causes more harm than healing.  Self care is often neglected during this life-changing time for families.  Pascha seeks to change this. 


Pascha has created a detailed curriculum to address topics such as community property laws, child support, spousal support, child custody, and division of assets & debts.  Pascha will also incorporate therapists and other self care professionals to address the mental health and emotional issues that go hand-in-hand with divorce, as well as the impacts on children.  These workshops and weekend retreats also have a healing component to them, offering yoga, meditation, soundbath, breathwork and other self-care modalities.   

Evening and weekend workshops are typically held at Pascha's Seabright office in Santa Cruz.  

Retreats to be held at a tranquil setting over a 2-3 day period.
