Welcome to H.E.A.L:  A Global Fellowship of Healing and Empowerment

The H.E.A.L Women Support Group is a global community, offering a free space for women worldwide to heal and grow together. Our focus is on promoting healing through sharing, honesty, and deep conversation, emphasizing hope, empowerment, acceptance, and love in our journey of self-discovery.

 

Why H.E.A.L is Unique

What makes our group special is the power of shared experiences. Unlike professional therapy, our group offers a unique emotional connection, providing a safe space for women to share their stories and heal together. This powerful bond accelerates the healing process, making group therapy an effective and impactful approach.

 

Our Founder's Vision

Founded by Marica Phipps-Johnson, a survivor of domestic violence, H.E.A.L. is more than a group for domestic violence survivors. It's a network for women who've endured various life challenges, from unhealthy relationships and childhood trauma to depression and loss. Marica's mission is to create a connected community, offering support and a path to healing.

Joining Our Meetings: What You Need to Know

  • Registration Required:  Sign-up is required for all attendees to ensure a secure experience, before receiving joining instructions.

  • Women-Identifying Only Group: Our group is a supportive environment for individuals who live and identify as women, embracing the diverse expressions of womanhood.

  • Camera Participation: During meetings, a camera must be on to maintain security and foster authenticity and mutual respect. 

  • Session Entry Guidelines: To maintain the integrity and flow of our support group sessions, we kindly request all participants to join on time. We offer a grace period of 8 minutes after the scheduled start time for any unforeseen delays. Please note, that to ensure a cohesive and uninterrupted experience for all members, entry will not be permitted beyond this grace period. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in creating a supportive environment for everyone.

  • Meeting Dynamics: Our sessions are guided; each member is encouraged to engage in check-in and check-out activities, including self-introduction, to foster a sense of community. This participation helps create a comfortable space for all, especially for those sharing more in discussions. New members are not pressured to contribute beyond this, but their initial engagement helps build trust and comfort within the group, encouraging a supportive environment for everyone.

  • Inclusivity: Our group, open to all women, is founded on spirituality without aligning with a specific religious doctrine. Our sessions may include prayers and references to God, reflecting the Christian background of our founder and facilitator. We warmly welcome and respect women of all faiths and beliefs, ensuring a space where everyone can share their spiritual perspectives comfortably.

Twelve Principles of H.E.A.L

 Our group operates on 12 guiding principles, from acknowledging personal challenges to learning unconditional self-love. These principles are the backbone of our group, helping us build fulfilling relationships and grow spiritually.. Download the Twelve Principles here

 

  1. Acknowledge:  Acknowledge that I cannot heal from the things that I don’t confront.

  2. Boundaries: Set, honor, and maintain healthy boundaries for myself and others.

  3. Power: Understand I have no control over others; my power lies in the control I have over myself.

  4. Guidance: Trust and rely on the guidance I receive from my Higher Power and allow it to lead my decisions and choices.

  5. Surrender: Make peace with and surrender to God’s plan instead of my own.

  6. Trust: Learn to trust me and those who’ve proven they are trustworthy.

  7. Believe: Believe others when they show me who they are, and make decisions for my well-being accordingly.

  8. Let Go or Fall:  Realize that the more I hold onto things that do not serve me, the more it disrupts my balance in life.

  9. Forgive: Understand that forgiveness is giving up the hope the past could’ve been different; I release myself and others from that hope.

  10. Potential:  No longer allow the potential of what something could be, to be my motivation for holding onto unhealthy relationships.

  11. Validation:  I have always been and will always be enough; I do not need to seek validation from others.

  12. Love: Learn how to love me unconditionally, only then will I be available to give and receive it from others.
