Beginning Experience is an international ministry for divorced, separated, & widowed individuals and their children. It is an invitational process that is intended to facilitate the resolution of the grief, promote healing and thereby free people to live and love themselves, others and God. The Beginning Experience Weekend is the foundation of the ministry with support programs and outreach to youth as integral to the ministry. The BE weekend is the foundation of the program. Participants spend the entire weekend in a retreat like atmosphere. It begins from Friday evening until early afternoon on Sunday in a safe and isolated environment. The BE Weekend has proven to help individuals make a new beginning in life. The experience provides support and direction and offers participants an opportunity to re-evaluate their lives and to move on to the future with renewed hope. All team members are trained to be good listeners, to ask questions that encourage participation to look inside themselves, and to stay on target. However, team members are not professional counselors, and individuals currently in counseling are asked to obtain the permission of their counselor before attending BE. ***For more information please go to: www.beginningexperience.org
