What if your broken heart was the best thing to ever happen to you.....


In Break Up and Shine, counsellor and author Marissa Walter shares powerful lessons learned from her divorce to guide you through your emotional pain and see it as an opportunity to move on to a happier life.


Starting with an understanding of grief and how we move through it, the book shares personal experience and offers insights, tools and reflective exercises to help you:


  • Gain perspective on your break-up to see opportunity from the loss;


  • Feel good about yourself as a single person;


  • Release old patterns of pain and blame which keep you stuck in the past;


  • Explore what you want from life now, and how to take steps to get there;


  • Discover when you're ready to find another relationship, and how to use the past to make your next love right for you


Break Up and Shine combines personal experience with inspired wisdom and practical advice, to support you in moving on and making life after the end of your relationship your happiest time yet.
