What is the Global Healing Response?
The GHR is a simple plan using the labyrinth and the labyrinth community for unified healing and to promote calm and grief integration in the case of an emergency or disaster.


The 2018 GHR Theme is LIGHT! Our fourthd quarter focus is
“Lighten Up!”

“Laughter is a sunbeam of the soul.” —Thomas Mann

Check out the materials here


Our community of labyrinth facilitators have offered walks for Hurricane Katrina, the Tsunami, Myanmar Earthquake and floods in China, and Haiti’s Earthquake, Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami, Hurricane Sandy and the tragedy in Newtown, CT at Sandy Hook elementary school.

As the years passed, GHR Quarterly has grown as a tool for continual healing intentions. Each year a theme is chosen and each quarter has a focus for the theme. All the materials needed to conduct an intentional labyrinth walk or healing event are provided. Click here for the current materials.

It is our hope that the GHR will continue to be a simple model for healing that will promote peace and provide hope throughout the world. As I always say, never underestimate the power of unified healing energy and the labyrinth.

Peace & Healing,

Ellen Bintz Meuch
Founder, Global Healing Response

  1. Hi Ellen,

    Looking forward to your workshop Feb. 10!

    Have been a faithful follower amplifying the intentions through my monthly labyrinth walk at the Duncan Center in Delray Beach, FL.
    Blessings for 2015, Linda Hurley

  2. Thanks, Linda! I am so appreciative of the comment. As you can see I am trying to improve the site. Hang on! It will get better.

  3. Today I am facilitating a labyrinth walk (in Delray Beach, FL) and dedicating it to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — Where do we go from here: Chaos or Community?

    “All men are interdependent…We are inevitably our brother’s keeper because we are our brother’s brother Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.

    We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

    We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.

    Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

    Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend. Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never be a reality….I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

    In his book, Strength to Love, Dr. King says, “Only through an inner spiritual transformation do we gain the strength to fight vigorously the evils of the world in a humble and loving spirit.”

  4. deeply moved by your idea–I walk the reconciliation labyrinth daily in my back yard–let me know if you’d like to know more about my 25 years of experience in the United Nations and why I think the labyrinth is key to global heading
    May you be blessed for your work!

  5. Announcement: So blessed! On June 6, 2015, I graduated from One Spirit Interfaith Seminary and now am an ordained interfaith-interspiritual minister whose home church is Unity of Delray Beach, FL. So blessed again!

  6. Ellen thank you for all you do! I am so delighted Stability-Redwoods are the focus & symbol. I grew up with the redwoods around me and they are such noble gracious living beings. I walk amongst them to regain my own sense of ground and place in the world.
