Giving Grief Meaning: A Method for Transforming Deep Suffering into Healing and Positive Change
A Unique New Therapy Tool for Healing and Self-Discovery
How inspired qualities and affirmations helped one psychotherapist honor her loved one, cope with grief, and find meaning.
Give Grief Meaning. How do you make sense of loss and tragedy? After the sudden and devastating loss of her infant daughter, Lily Dulan, a marriage and family therapist (MFT), psychotherapist and certified yoga teacher, meditated, prayed, and ruminated on the only thing she had left–her baby girl’s name. In Lily’s courage to address and move through her pain, she developed The Name Work, a cross pollination of proven psychological modalities, 12-step wellness tools, spiritual healing applications, meditation and ancient yoga. In her heartfelt memoir, Lily shares her healing journey and her method for unleashing the power in names and giving them special meaning to help move through the grief process in a thoughtful and transformative way.
What’s in a name? Meanings! The Name Work method teaches you how to assign special meaning and qualities to the letters in names–a deceased loved one’s or your own–and how to create positive affirmations for each letter’s attribute. The Name Work is a tangible and personal self-healing method for whatever obstacles arise.
A unique, new wellness tool for healing and self-discovery, The Name Work also includes:
• Affirmations, self-guided questions, meditations, and practices
• An A-Z dictionary of qualities to help create your own Inspired Grouping of Qualities and affirmations
• A first-hand account of the author’s personal healing journey
