About the Program

How is life feeling lately? As we process the last eighteen months and the ongoing pandemic, there is a lot to unpack. Whether or not you’ve recently lost a loved one, there are many things you may be grieving—the loss of a home or job, broken relationships, and even missed opportunities.

In this three-part workshop, explore your emotional landscape using The NameWork® method. Blending twelve-step philosophies with mindfulness practices, The Name Work® uses the letters in your name or the name of a loved one to move through life’s obstacles and promote positive change.
