We’re often asked for sample contracts and we understand the need to actually see what we’re talking about. On the other hand, these are very personal and by the time we redact the personal and identifying information, there isn’t much left. AND there have been times when we shared sample agreements only to see the same language appear in another contract, which is not the point of sharing.
Each Conscious Contracts® agreement is unique and bespoke. Templates are troublesome in the Conscious Contracts process because it is the process of dynamic engagement that contributes to trust developing and genuine buy-in by all parties. Without this co-creative process, a contract might be more conscious, but it won’t achieve the same level of transformation our clients have seen.
With that caveat, we understand it’s far easier to comprehend once you’ve seen something different, so we’re starting to share a few examples of what the end-product contract looks like when created with the Conscious Contracts process.

Because divorce and separation are such intimate, fact-based processes, we created a sample that is NOT based on a real situation. The parties and their situation are completely fictitious and this one is only offered as an illustration of what is possible.
