Giving Grief Meaning
After her first daughter, Kara Meyer Dulan, died at home from SIDS at two months old, Lily started a foundation in her child’s memory called The Kara Love Project. Through being gentle and kind with herself, the letters from Kara’s name began to bring qualities of change all over the world. By attaching a special meaning to names, following breathing and meditative exercises, and daily affirmations, Lily is able to move through the grief process in profound and transformative ways. She can teach all of us to do the same, using the hard earned method she developed and calls The Name Work. By creating an inspired groupings of qualities, (IGQ’s) attaching purpose and meaning to our chosen names, and following breathing and meditative exercises, daily affirmations, and more; Lily is able to move through the grief process in profound and transformative ways.

Through introspection and self-reflection, the reader is able to create an Inspired Grouping of Qualities. The qualities we find through doing The Name Work can help us move through grief and suffering of all kinds. Once mastered it is a tangible and personal self healing method for whatever obstacles come up in day-to-day life. A unique, new wellness tool for healing and self-discovery,
Dr. Lori Whatley
Dr. Lori Whatley is a clinical psychologist and relational therapist who specializes in the effects of excessive digital device usage. Dr. Whatley has over 25 years of clinical experience and has specialized in digital device usage for the past 10 years. Her latest book “Connected & Engaged: How to Manage Digital Distractions and Reconnect with the World Around You” takes a look at the toll excessive digital device usage has on our lives—and what we can do about it.
Negative news stories can affect your children more than you think. Discussing politics is painful at any age, but it is painful to try and imagine stress on children, too. Dr. Lori says we must learn to discuss politics with civility. We have to find a way to be civil without tearing our families apart. Nothing good can come from trying to argue politics with a child. Your child has a right to develop their own belief system, but it is best to try and never argue with them. Dr. Whatley grew up in a home with parents with differing political views, but she never saw them bicker. That is the goal for us.
