Marriage endings causes such tremendous upheaval. Your name, your family, your home, and your finances are no longer the same. This is a time to honor the past, feel the pain, purge of old, and lifeless things and discover strength and tenderness as you make the transition.
What Others are Saying
The ritual played a significant role in marking my decision to change my name. I don’t think I knew how important it was in moving forward, but in hindsight, it is “the” thing that marked and launched me into what I felt called to do. Every time I think about the ritual experience tears come to my eyes. It was beautiful and beyond holy. It was the embodied, tangible and risky expression of hope that declared: “I believe.” The ritual made my name change feel legitimate and real.
