Tahoe City, CA (June 27, 2012) -- One of the wedding capitals of the world - Lake Tahoe - is set to become Splitsville, when an estimated 200 or more divorced people arrive in Tahoe City, California for The "Rebuilding Your Life After Divorce" Mountain Retreat September 15 - 17, 2012 at Granlibakken Resort.

* Let go of post-divorce anger and sadness.
* Reconnect with what makes you happy.
* Meet quality people when venturing back out into the dating world.
* Use four questions single parents can use to get their child to cooperate with every request.
* Begin the steps necessary if you're as unhappy with your job or career as you were with your marriage.
* Feel whole again now that you're a single person instead of part of a couple.

Is Men), Lisa Steadman (It's a Breakup Not a Breakdown), Shela Dean, (ReDate Your Mate: 4 Steps to Falling in Love All Over Again), Theodore Henderson, MBA, DTM (The Wisdom Compass), Susan Sheppard (How to Get What You Want From Your Man Anytime), and Julia Bowlin, MD, ACG, ALS (To ME I Thee Wed).

The retreat is the brainchild of Kimberly Pryor, a freelance journalist and author of The Indestructible Relationship: Support and Understand Each other Better During Grief, Illness, and All Life's Stressful Moments. After seeing how much her friends were suffering after divorce, she wanted to take action to help divorced people everywhere.
"I noticed some common problems among my divorced friends," Pryor said. "Many of them were beating themselves up over the role they thought they had played in the breakup of their marriage. Others were happy the bad marriage ended but were either nervous about having to date again or when they did start dating again they would meet men or women who were not what I would call the highest quality. Other friends' children weren't taking the divorce well - the kids were turning to drugs or not doing poorly in school. My goal in hosting this retreat is to show divorced people easy ways to overcome these and other challenges."
The "Rebuilding Your Life After Divorce" Mountain Retreat also includes online dating photos taken by a professional photographer for the first 135 people who sign up for the event as well as a "Dress as Your Favorite Divorced Celebrity" party.
Ten percent of the net proceeds from the retreat benefit Be Someone (www.besomeone.org), a non-profit founded by Orrin "Checkmate" Hudson. He was watching the news one night when he saw a story about seven employees shot, execution style - for $2,000 in the cash register. That's when he sold his business and founded Be Someone to teach something positive to inner city kids: the focus, discipline and patience required by the game of chess. Since then, he's helped over 20,000 kids develop the practical skills and techniques to overcome obstacles in life.
