    Understanding Divorce With Adult Children

    in Relationships

    If you're looking for guidance on divorcing with adult children, you might not find much.They tend to be the forgotten demograhic: the legal system is all about minor children and there simply hasn't been much research on the impact of divorce in adult children. 
    That's probably because until recently divorce among people with long term marriages was less common. That's changing and in fact, the divorce rate among people aged 50 and older is increasing. That means more and more adults are experiencing their parents' divorce.
    What we're finding is that the age of the children doesn't matter - they will still care that you're divorcing and their age doesn't make it any easier or harder to handle. Their age brings its own set of problems and complications.
    Joining Mandy for this Conversation is divorce-attorney-turned divorce adviser and coach Karen Covy. Karen's mission is to help people understand their divorce options so they can make choices that will help them not only survive their divorce but put them in a position to thrive afterwards.

    Bonnitta Roy is an award-winning scholar of integral process philosophy. She served the President of the National Qigong Association. Now she is an associate editor of the internationally acclaimed Integral Review Journal.
    Her rural home, called "Alderlore", is surrounded by old growth forest in the hillsides of the Berkshire Mountains in Northwest Connecticut. Alderlore is also a retreat center that offers two educational programs.
    The first program is "Qigong with Horses." It includes workshops where the horses teach people about energy, body language, emotional balance and how to engage the natural world on a deeper level.
    The second program focuses on "insight training" - helping people to tap into the transformational power of the mind in its natural state. Insight training workshops activate intuitive awareness by cultivating the ability to perceive the world directly, and the capacity to experience equanimity. When mind is in its natural state, we can discover what is possible that has never been possible before.
