What: A public lecture by Dr. Barbara Wagner with the Medical Scientific Group of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends on the medical viability of Groening’s esoteric healing methods.
Where: Crystal Visions Bookstore, 5426 Asheville Hwy., Hendersonville
When: Wednesday, June 4 at 7 p.m. Free.
Why: Bruno Groening (1906-1959) believed humanity is surrounded by a divine healing force, or “heilstrom,” that is readily accessible to everyone who employs the proper methods. Groening was reknowned for his ability to heal others and became a controversial figure in his lifetime. At one point, he drew a crowd of 30,000 who sought to benefit from his powers, after which the German government imposed a “healing ban,” on his practices.
Xpress spoke with Joe McIntosh and Loek Neisz, community leaders with the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends, to find out more.
Mountain Xpress: What is unique about this healing method?
McIntosh: Bruno compared a person to a battery that needs to be recharged. If new energy is not replaced, it results in fatigue, exhaustion, nervousness, anxieties and, finally, illness. [At the lecture] you will learn how to absorb this new energy. The human body is constantly surrounded by healing waves which only have to be absorbed. … It’s such a very simple and natural technique that has been taught since ancient times.
What is the mission of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends?
Neisz: As thousands of friends have received help and healing themselves, out of gratitude and experiencing this wonderful gift, the Circle of Friends is happy to share this knowledge to everyone who needs it. Many people are suffering from diseases or pain, which mostly no doctor can help anymore. But like Bruno Groening said: “Incurable doesn’t exist,” which is what many from the COF have experienced [having been] healed from incurable diseases.
