Closure after divorce

The Phoenix Ritual

This free PDF file is an exercise designed to help you gain some closure with your divorce.

The definition of a phoenix:

a legendary bird which according to one account lived 500 years, burned itself to ashes on a pyre, and rose alive from the ashes to live another period

In many ways this is what divorce is about. The often painful end of part of our life and the beginning of another. Like the phoenix, we get burnt by divorce but we can get up out of the ashes and live a full and productive life again.

This free PDF file is a series of exercises designed to help you through that process by providing closure and a new beginning. 


  • No distractions. You should be alone
  • Honesty. Be open and honest about your feelings
  • Be prepared to get upset if that's how you feel. It is ok to cry or get angry
  • You will probably want to print out the pages to work on them

Understand that this may not work for everyone as you may not be ready.
For some of you, this will never work as you process things differently and will find your own closure.

Hopefully this will help trigger some closure, healing and a new beginning for you.
