Overview

The end of a significant relationship initiates painful and powerful change in one's life, daily habits, and even in one's personal identity. In Thriving After Divorce, author and relationship coach Tonja Evetts Weimer offers readers a grounded approach to growing through the difficult life transitions that arise from the breaking of our most defining partnerships. Weimer's book will guide readers through a potentially tumultuous time to a safe place by showing how to put one's actions in alignment with one's needs and values for positive outcomes that will strengthen and prepare the heart for a new path.
The key is in learning how to create an authentic new life, and therefore, a different relationship with the partner in the absence of shared romantic love. This relationship allows the possibility of any continuing combined goals, while building and sustaining necessary boundaries and guidelines for new interactions. Weimer shows readers how to deal with shared responsibilities involving children, mutual business interests, the care of family members, and other situations that require both parties to work together in the new space of the relationship. Thriving After Divorce speaks to anyone who has gone through a breakup, providing hope, alternatives, empowerment, and inspiration to find a new way to relate to former situations and relationships that, in the past, could have been fractious.

    Thriving After Divorce is amazing and will help transform your life

    TAO is an acronym formed from the first letters of the three key words "Take", "Action" and "Outcome" that form the fundamental basis of Tonja Weimer's extraordinary book. It is helping me transform my life and I am confident it will help me to not repeat the same mistakes again. TAO means the "way" in Chinese, so the acronym is a perfect word to describe Tonja's method and the tools she has used to successfully help her clients transform their lives.

    The book is both inspiring and entertaining. It has examples and stories of Tonja's clients whose old "take" had created a life of unhappiness. It has examples of how these clients used Tonja's "TAO of divorce" tools to help shift their view to a new "take" and to create a life of happiness and possibility.

    I am already using the book with surprisingly fast results. I wish I could afford to have Tonja coach me personally, but in the meantime the book is making a difference in my life.

    This is a "how to" book that I find powerful because it is simultaneously simple and profound. I can now see how my old Take, made me Act the way I did, and produced such unhappy Outcomes. I have started to do the things in Tonja's TAO checklists, and already see a differnce in my life. What I also find amazing is that the same techniques that work for a love relationship are working with problems that I have had with my boss.

    Highly recommended.

    Highly recommend!

    As a never married (and thus, never divorced), younger generation reader, I found Tonja's book "Thriving After Divorce," to be extremly applicable to anyone's every day life. I had orignally purchased the book for my (divorced) mother, thinking it might be of some help to her. I ended up reading it myself and was thoroughly impressed. Tonja's positive outlook on life can be of use to anyone who has experienced the pains of divocre, other traumas, or any feeling of hopelessness. This book is an excellent guide and tool to living a healthy, happy, successful life. I would recommend it to anyone; young, old, divorced or single.
