Lily Dulan      

Leading Grief Expert & Author of "Giving Grief Meaning"

Lily Dulan is an MFT Psychotherapist with a master’s degree in Psychology and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Antioch University, Los Angeles. She played an instrumental role in starting the LGBTQ Affirmative Psychology specialization at Antioch University. Ms. Dulan holds a Master of Arts Degree in Teaching from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts, and she is a certified Heart of Yoga Teacher. She studied Spiritual Coursework at Agape International Spiritual Center under the tutelage of Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith. Dulan drew on her studies of both Eastern and Western disciplines to create a heart centered system of healing and moving through trauma that she calls The Name Work.

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. The Kara Love Project has teamed with local, national and international organizations such as the Unatti Foundation in Nepal, Venice Arts in Los Angeles and Foster Nation to serve marginalized youth. It has also developed and supported programming to benefit the mental and physical wellbeing of seniors in Los Angeles County.

She has developed a new and unique therapy for healing and self-discovery. which can be harnessed in every facet of our lives. It led her to write "Giving Grief Meaning", which was released December 1, 2020 from Mango Press.

Dulan, who is also a Marriage and Family Therapist, psychotherapist, and certified yoga teacher, has been hailed by her peers, including Marianne Willamson, Sharon Salzberg, Reverend Michael Beckwith, Ann Lamott, Metta World Peace, and more.

The pandemic affected us all, and after a year of isolation and pain, the entire world is ready to heal from the collective grief we’ve all felt - stress, sorrow, loss and mourning - in unprecedented ways. We also fight to remember and speak the names of those we've lost, something Dulan has already done through the development of The Name Work® method. She has created this method and is using it to help people move through trauma and grief.

Dulan facilitates The Name Work workshops and educational events in the greater Los Angeles area for universities, organizations, corporations, and small private groups. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two daughters.
