“Better Apart: The Radically Positive Way to Separate by leading family law attorney and mediator, Gabrielle Hartley with acclaimed yoga practioner, Elena Brower is a must read for anyone going through divorce or separation today. As a top family law attorney and mediator for 30 years, I know that divorce can be a difficult and distressing process but it does not have to be that way and this book contains the tools to pivot that mindset and experience in order to transition positively and without stigma. Named the “conscious uncoupling how-to” book by People Magazine and endorsed by Gwyneth Paltrow who said that it contains the “potent and powerful tools for your family and your future”, Better Apart truly is a game-changer in the world of divorce. In fact, The New York Post compared Better Apart to Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up, another book with life-changing insights. While breaking up doesn’t typically spark joy Gabrielle Hartley has created a solid method to turn a relationship gone bad into a launchpad forward.
Blending practical advice from a legal perspective together with spiritual wisdom, Gabrielle and Elena are experts and realists who have created a simple five-step process that uses original meditations, perspective-shifting exercises, and fresh suggestions to help navigate the common legal and emotional pitfalls of divorce. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried yoga or mediation; Gabrielle’s insight buttressed by Elena’s practices and exercises are accessible for all. Together, they show you how to meaningfully shift your mindset and to move forward though any-or all-parts of this emotionally fraught process.”
