SAN DIEGO, CA – November 16, 2004 - Re-creating Families Inc., an organization dedicated to offering tools and techniques to people experiencing divorce, is proud to announce a book signing of “What Would Love Do Now? Re-creating Families After Divorce, Getting Back to a Place of Love” on November 17, 2004 at the Encinitas, CA, Barnes and Noble at 6:30 p.m. The revolutionary new concepts that are presented in this book and workshop series are designed to open communication channels between couples and families going through divorce.

Winter’s unique perspective comes from her own successful efforts in re-creating her family after divorce – a success that does not go unnoticed by people in her community. What Would Love Do Now? offers new perspectives and concrete tools, empowering the reader to re-create their life in a positive way.

The workshop series provides participants with a valuable forum for examining their lives after divorce, maintaining a positive view of their families and envisioning their future as full of possibilities. The private consultations offer a deeper exploration in a safe, non-judgmental and loving setting of the ideas and ways of re-creating as taught in the book. Clients participate either as couples or individuals in the process of re-creating their vision of their family after the rupture of divorce. Participants begin to see themselves as more...

“After experiencing the rupture of divorce in my own life, I felt the need to provide others with a way to open their eyes and their hearts, allow them to feel empowered, and live the lives that they deserve to live,” said Karen Winter, president of Re-creating Families and author of What Would Love Do Now? “A large number of psychologists, spiritual practitioners and marriage and family therapists are experiencing significant results from using this book and program, which ultimately amounts to creating peace within the home.”

In addition to the book “What Would Love Do Now?,” Winter has also developed workshops and classes for people experiencing divorce and for parents of two-home families. These classes are based on the principles of the book, offering techniques and tools for individuals to process emotions stemming from their divorce. It also provides them with methods for getting beyond the hurt and into peaceful action. The end result is a blended family that can operate from a loving, supportive and accepting space. These critical skills open doors for divorced parents to deal with their former partners and parenting partners by creating a loving foundation for their children.

“Re-creating Families has turned my life into a more positive outlook in the whole process of divorce and all the pain that accompanies it,” said P.A. a recent graduate of Winter’s class. “Parents who practice what is presented in the book and reconfirm in the classes come away with a lifelong gift.”

The What Would Love Do Now? book and workshop series offers a safe and gentle way to explore the dynamics of past relationships. This series provides a forum to explore an understanding of oneself that can be used to create new and more mindful ways to communicate in the present and future.

  • Setting Intentions for Who You Want to Be
