Are you longing for a community of people who, like you, are willing to do what it takes to live their best possible life with or possibly even overcome Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Fibromyalgia, and related conditions?
Then this Healing Community may be what you were looking for..
I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for creating this healing community! I’m so excited about my time with you today – I ended up doing good things for myself that I wouldn’t have otherwise. I’m thrilled!!~Ingrid
How does the Healing Community work?
Soon after you sign up, you will be contacted by your “getting-started buddy,” who will take you by your hand and guide you to
- Practice the “Three Steps”, a way to infuse any activity with ease and joy. All you need to make it work is a phone or Skype, and a buddy.
- Find a partner (or a group) to practice your favorite self-care activity at your preferred time.
- Learn mindfulness sharing, a way to meditate over the phone with your partner that you will likely love even if you have never particular enjoyed meditating before.
- Join a daily live guided meditation. If you like, we will call you when the meditation begins (only U.S. and Canada at this time). So far, the meditation takes place each weekday from 11:15am to 11:45am.
- A “positive” group chat in which the focus is on sharing mutual support, inspiration to keep healing, and what makes our heart sing.
It’s not required to partake in all of activities of this community. Just choose the activity or activities that seem right to you at this time!
I did a mindfulness sharing with Chloe for half an hour and it was such a powerful experience. It brought joyful tears to my eyes. I am so grateful to have come across you and these groups. I know this is where my healing will be.~Natalie

I’ve reached a mile stone… it’s been a year since I started this recovery lark..and I’ve gone from about 2% to 50%, even 65/70% in good patches. I’m really grateful to everyone in this recovery group for their presence here for self care. This group/ connection, support and sharing resources has been so important. Love and thankfulness to you all.~Roxanna
I look forward to having you join our community of inspiring, motivated people who work on their recovery!

Questions and Answers
Are the “buddies” people with experience using the Healing Community? If so, how much experience have they had?
The “getting started buddies” have been part of the Healing Community for at least for six months. All getting started buddies have been carefully selected and trained, and have our full trust that they will do an excellent job.
How long is the $60 membership good for?
The membership lasts for one year.
One possible limitation (that none of our members have run into yet) is that the $60 membership is limited to three times of working with our administrative help to find a partner. In other words, if your schedule changes or you want to increase or decrease the frequency of meeting up with a partner, you we will help you with that three times for free. Afterwards, we will charge a small administrative fee (about $10-15).
For example, Susan started out by meeting two times a week for mindfulness sharing. After a while, she liked her meetings so much that she wanted to meet four times a week. She contacted us to set her up with a partner for her additional two meetings.
Now Susan had used two of the three included partnering up support requests, one for her initial set up and then one for her changing her schedule to meet more often. She can change her schedule one more time for free. For additional schedule changes she’d have to pay a small administrative fee.
Why is it not free?
Through trial and error we discovered that new participants need personal guidance and support in order to truly benefit from the Healing Community. Some of your sign-up fee goes to toward the cost of that personal getting-started support. Another part of your signup fee goes to the administrative help who matches people up as buddies, and part of it goes toward the cost of the technology that’s involved in the group meditations, for example for giving you the option to receive a phone call to join the meditation. Lastly, a part of your signup fee goes toward getting the word out about the Healing Community and further improving it community.
Offering it at $5/month, we are trying our very best to prevent the cost from joining people.
Nevertheless, we are also looking for ways to offer it free of charge to those who cannot afford it otherwise. Please send us a message if you would like to join but cannot afford it.
If you know a possible sponsor or would like to volunteer, we’d also love to hear about it (please send us a message here).
