How inspired qualities and affirmations helped one mother honor her loved one, cope with grief, and give grief meaning. After the sudden and devastating loss of her infant daughter, Lily Dulan meditated, prayed, and ruminated on the only thing she had left – her baby’s name. In Lily’s courage to address and move through her pain, she developed a cross-pollination of proven psychological modalities, 12-step wellness tools, spiritual healing applications, meditations, and ancient yoga. She calls this self-help process, “The Name Work.” In her heartfelt memoir, Lily shares her healing journey and 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.
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. It is a tangible and personal self-healing method for whatever obstacles arise; a unique, new wellness tool for healing and self-discovery.
