SPIRITUAL PROCESS GROUPS
Safe Spaces to Process
Watch as Megan discusses Faith Shifts and Deconstruction with Ashely Easter from the Courage 365 Show.
Are you struggling with your faith? This is an excellent, free resource to address the fear that can surround what feels like "risky thinking".
Groups Are Open for Registration through the year!
Sign up for spiritual process groups! Proceeds for these groups will go to the non profit organization, Shepherd My Sheep to help educate survivors and advocates of DV!!
Abuse has been so rampant in our lives and spiritual abuse has taken many of us from the One who loves us the most. This season, beginning February 1, I (Heather) will be offering two ways to connect:
1. Deconstructing and Reconstructing the Book of John.
John is my favorite book of the Bible and it’s always been my go-to for teaching about God’s love. This is not going to be about me telling you what to believe. It’s going to be learning to hear a loving God speaking to you. We will walk through this together slowly, asking lots of questions without fear of judgement. We will see that God’s word speaks to each one of us differently and that is OK!!
2. Spiritual Processing Groups with a twist.
We are trying something new this year - once a month meetings of 2 hrs, focused on a couple of interrelated issues. You can sign up for any month’s group that interests you. There will be some reading and short videos to watch prior to the class. You are not required to attend each month. There will only be one date and time offered each month.
First group Tuesday, February 7. 5-7pm PST Holding Space for and validating our stories with self compassion. Prepaid cost $60. No refund after February 5.
Are you in the process of de-constructing your faith? Are you struggling to attend a church? Would you like to take a deeper dive into the world of the Judeo-Christian religion? This group may be for you!
We laugh, we cry, we bond . . . we learn together.
In an intimate, online, private setting, we gather to verbally process and reflect on each month's reading and video.
These cohorts are RICH in meaning and participants and facilitators always leave with full cups.

About Our SPG Facilitator
(BA, Certified Bilingual Teacher, Certified Advocated for Victims/ Survivors of DV)
Heather was raised in London, England as a nominal Anglican. She only discovered Jesus in her 20’s but has been on fire for Him ever since - that’s 30 years!! She is still the only member of her family, other than her son who is a Christian and continues to be questioned for her beliefs. She was married for 4 years to a man who abused both her and her young son. It was her ex’s spiritual abuse of her son that was the last straw and led them to escape in the night, the day after Heather’s 50th birthday. She now runs the Registered Charity “Shepherd My Sheep Domestic Violence Ministries” whose aim is to educate all community members about domestic violence and how to recognise and come alongside victims/ survivors. The majority of her work is currently done in Africa, via Zoom. She also advocates for survivors of Domestic Violence. Heather has found incredible community and spiritual growth in the MCCC SPG and is absolutely THRILLED to be a facilitator now! Heather has completed Units 1 and 2 and is currently working through Unit 3. Knowing Jesus more is her passion, as is bringing that Light to others’ lives.
