Writing Your Way from Heartbreak to Healing

A Powerful and Proven Strategy to Help You Overcome a Breakup, Let Go, and Move On

Free yourself from the emotional pain of your breakup, regain your self-esteem, finally be at peace with yourself and the past, and emerge stronger, more confident and hopeful than ever before.

Use this powerful and proven strategy to help you overcome a breakup, let go, and move on even if you still love him, struggle with overthinking and letting go, and are feeling scared or uncertain about what’s next for you.

Are you coping with the end of a significant relationship?

Maybe it was a recent or not-so-recent breakup, but you find yourself:

  • Thinking about your ex all the time
  • Struggling to let go of hurt, resentment, guilt, or blame
  • Feeling emotionally overwhelmed at times
  • Struggling to trust again and feel confident about yourself
  • Struggling to be present in your new relationships or in other important areas of your life
  • Trying to date again, but find yourself comparing him to your ex
  • Trying to get out, have fun, try new things...but just end up feeling sad and lonely
  • Wanting peace, closure and, above all, CLARITY, but unsure how to get it
  • Feeling lost, ungrounded, and unsure of what’s next for you in your life

Breakups are Hard

Whether he broke up with you or you broke up with him...

Whether you saw it coming or it was totally unexpected.....

—the truth is, breakups are painful.

You might be feeling overwhelmed, confused and lost, in spite of being a highly conscious person who has worked on yourself for many years.

For most people, breakups are challenging, confusing, uncertain, and exhausting…

But they can also be a source of profound insight and creative energy that can radically change your life for the better.

The Problem is...

When we don’t heal from our heartbreak, we undermine the success of our future relationships.

You may physically move on from a relationship, but if you don’t get closure and move on, your emotional energy is spent mired in the past.

It often shows up as:

  • Replaying grievances over and over again in your mind so you have no peace
  • Constantly comparing your new relationship to your ex
  • Or consciously or unconsciously avoiding commitment or connection…in the hopes that your ex will come back

Or we can fall into behavior such as:

  • Letting your emotions stew, causing more stress and anxiety
  • Struggling to stay positive through affirmations or positive thinking...but never properly acknowledging how you really feel, and so the negative thoughts resurface
  • Resigning yourself to the status quo, tolerating the change and allowing the discomfort to fester within you, and so the pain persists
  • Distracting yourself to cope through rebound relationships, emotional eating, drinking "to relax," or overworking; and risk falling into toxic habits—or worse—getting stuck there

Not getting closure from a past relationship prevents us from being emotionally available in our present or future relationship.

It robs us of being open and receptive to the deeply fulfilling love life that we want and deserve.

How can we truly move on and not just heal but emerge stronger, more confident, and hopeful than ever before?

If you’re ready to focus on you and are committed to moving beyond the pain and into a place of resilience and hope, I invite you to join me for this very special class:

The Power of Writing Your Way from Heartbreak to Healing

Leia Francisco

Each of us moves through transitions in our own way and our own timeline. We leave behind an old belief or situation to find our new path, helped by honest assessment of strengths and values, as well as by support from others. Writing or journaling about transitions can help us manage stress and gain powerful insights about what is really going on.

Leia Francisco Career Development Coach and author of Writing through Transitions
Deepak Chopra

Journaling can be a helpful process for those who need to gain perspective and some distance on their inner feelings and conditioning. When you write out your thoughts and emotions, you make them explicit and objectify them in a way that is not always easy to do when these thoughts are embedded in the background of the flow of your everyday life.

Putting this material out on paper through journaling gives you a more powerful point of view with respect to these feelings. You can look at them more as the contents of your psyche, rather than having to trying to sort out your sense of self through the filter of those mental attitudes. When you read what you have written down, you do so from a quieter, more uninvolved reference point inside. That inner reference is closer to your true self, the silent witness within, and so instead of magnifying the negativity, this attention will help you heal and unplug those patterns from their unconscious sources.

Deepak Chopra author of numerous bestsellers, including Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being, and global leader and pioneer in the field of mind-body medicine
Marianne Williamson

Journaling is a way you listen to yourself, by making it clear to yourself what you actually think and feel. The more room you give yourself to express your true thoughts and feelings, the more room there is for your wisdom to emerge. In listening to yourself, you learn from yourself. In listening deeply to the voice of your heart, you reestablish relationship with your true self, so long denied.

Marianne Williamson author of The Gift of Change: Spiritual Guidance for Living Your Best Life and international lecturer on spiritual, personal and political issues

Frequently Asked Questions

Will this work for me? How can writing help me let go?

In my experience, writing your way through difficult change and transition restores self-trust. I know this to be true in my own transition journaling and in the writing circles that I've led.

Writing gives you the permission to define your transition according to your own timeline. It restores your sense of agency. "[Writing] helps you trust yourself in dealing with the dark unknowns of transitions," says Leia Francisco, in her article on Writing Through Transitions: Letting Go.

When do you know that you've healed?

In Leia Francisco’s book Writing Through Transitions, she says “nothing is ended until it is ended in your heart.” Healing is a deeply personal journey. Only you know when you have truly healed. But I would say it’s when you’re free.

Free from that which you’re trying to let go. Free from the emotional pain and anguish. Free to be who you truly are and to live the life that you want to live. It’s when you recognize that you may have scars, but you no longer have wounds.

Breaking up hurts. What now? How do I know what's next for me?

It sure does. Nobody wants to break-up. But like any major change that upends our life and leaves us reeling or wondering “what now?”, there will come a time when we will regroup and explore the new possibilities that await us on the other side of our healing.

Knowing what’s next requires being open to the possibility of what’s next. And being open to the possibility of what’s next requires freeing yourself from whatever may be keeping you from moving on.

And as with knowing when you’ve healed, it usually doesn’t feel like a door flung open. Healing and knowing what’s next is more incremental, like regaining full movement after a broken leg. You might walk the day you get your cast off. Or you might just practice bending your knee. But one day, sometime soon, you’ll run.

I’m afraid of revisiting old wounds, facing difficult feelings, or going deeper than I think I’m ready for. Am I really ready for this class?

I understand the reluctance and fear you might be facing in thinking about what thoughts and feelings may come up for you in this class. I want to assure you that you always have a choice. You can write or not. You can share or not. You can speak or not. Maybe you just want to be a listener during the entire class. Just listening to others may help.

Class participants are invited to share but it is never required. It is not my job to force transformation or change, but rather to simply show you a way. And to honor the path you choose to take, whether you choose to speak or to be silent. Just taking the class is an affirmation of your strength. What’s important to remember is that you are always in control. And your choice to speak or to be silent will always be respected.

I’m concerned about confidentiality. Will my privacy be protected?

Your trust is important to me. I believe the issue of privacy, confidentiality, and emotional safety are paramount. If I were in a difficult place, I would not want my voice recorded or recognized or captured long-term. So, while class content will be recorded on the teleconferences for those who may not be able to attend class, any discussions or comments from class participants will NOT be included in the recorded audio and will be edited out. The class recordings and handouts are contained in a private online password-protected student area. And what is shared in class stays between the students in the class.

I am currently seeing a therapist/counselor, should I tell him or her that I am taking this class?

Yes, if you are currently in therapy, please inform your therapist of your intention to take this class and show your therapist the class description so that he or she may also be able to support you if any especially difficult emotions come up.

While reflective writing has therapeutic benefits and we do explore feelings and the past, it is very important to note that I am not a licensed therapist and this class is not designed to be a support group in the traditional sense, even though you may feel supported and gain insights into your own thinking process in the class.

Rather, it is a class to teach you the tools and hold the space for you to facilitate letting go of the past and gaining clarity with the help of a trained guide.

Is there homework in the class and how much can I expect?

Yes, there will be some weekly assignments to help you deepen your growth and learning in this work. Because this is a process-oriented program, the assignments are minimal but focused. The magic comes from your own writing process and how your insights generate new awareness.

What should I bring to each class? Do I need a journal?

Come to each session with an open heart, open mind and the intention to simply allow your words to flow and allow yourself the space to move through this change in your life. If you have a journal you like to write in, I encourage you to bring it to each class so you can use it for the writing exercises. But if you most comfortable and content with a blank sheet of paper and a pen or typing in a word processor, that will do as well. Write in the medium in which you feel most free.

Do I need to have an established journaling practice to benefit from this course?

No, you don’t need to have a regular practice in journaling to benefit from this class. Maybe you haven't done any reflective writing for years. Or you’ve never journaled before. The beauty and magic of this approach is that it is very simple to get started. You just need a pen and paper.

When and where are the classes held?

The classes will be held via teleconference. You can listen in the comfort of your own home or wherever you would like to take the call. Class materials will be emailed to you as well as contained in a private online password-protected student area.

Class 1: Thursday, October 12, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Pacific Time

Class 2: Thursday, October 19, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Pacific Time

Class 3: Thursday, October 26, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Pacific Time

Class 4: Thursday, November 2, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Pacific Time

Class 5: Wednesday, November 8, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Pacific Time

If I cannot attend class, will there be a recording?

Yes, if you miss a class, you can always reference the recording. Class content will be recorded on the teleconferences for those who may not be able to attend class. And to protect the privacy of class participants, any discussions or comments from class participants will NOT be included in the recorded audio and will be edited out.

I know sometimes we hesitate to invest in ourselves. We’re unsure of the outcome. We don’t know if it’s going to work for us. Maybe it’s a stretch, financially.

I understand the hesitation. And I really acknowledge you for your self-awareness. I only want you to jump in if you really feel it’s right for you.  

But if you DO feel it’s for you, but you’re just unsure, I encourage you to think about:

If, after taking this class, you were in a completely different place….

If you could have a greater sense of peace, feel free, feel content, feel like yourself again…

If you could finally feel open and available to the possibilities of a deeply fulfilling life and relationship that await you on the other side of your healing…

Would this class be worth it to you?

The goal of this class is to help you reconnect with your innate power to heal.

In Writing Your Way from Heartbreak to Healing, you will learn a proven strategy and gain powerful tools to help you achieve those things---if you’re ready to take the journey and willing to walk the path.

It would be my honor to be your guide.
