Free online health information lecture 2020

What people of all advanced civilizations knew- what famous doctors (Paracelsus- Hahnemann etc.) used and what science confirmed through some fundamental discoveriesIn this lecture you will learn about the teaching of Bruno Groening (1906 - 1959). His message was simple: there is a higher power that is the basis of all living things and it can heal! He showed how this energy that he referred to as 'Heilstrom' could be absorbed into the body- and through his teachings many people were cured- even from diseases that were considered incurable.Healings occur today as back then- and the words of Bruno Groening: 'There is no incurable- God is the greatest physician-' has been proven and documented within the Medical Scientific Group - a world-wide forum of independent medical doctors- psychologists and health care professionals within the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends.To learn more- attend one of our free online lectures. Please register hereOnce you have registered- you will be sent instructions on how to download the free Zoom app either to your phone or laptop-computer. Important: Please register well ahead of time and log in 5 minutes early to get settled.For further Information: Contact: Linley Anderson on 0402 248 391 Visit our website or our YouTube Channel

Christian Science: a clearer view of you 2020

A web talk- by Lyle Young- CSB- from Ottawa- Canada- available on big screens at Christian Science Church- Glebe- with social distancing and Covid-19 registration.Mary Baker Eddy- who founded the Christian Science church- had a profound insight into the nature of God as infinite Love. She perceived that God is the only substance- intelligence and Life of the universe- without the opposition typically ascribed to darkness or evil. Moreover- Eddy realised that this was the basis of Jesus' healing works.Such an unusual theology might have ended as a footnote to history- except that Eddy and her students boldly used it to reinvigorate Christianity and its lost element of healing. Since then- some 65-000 accounts of healing have been verified and published — healings of everything from cancer to AIDS to blindness- from drug addiction to broken bones.To the degree that we understand our identity as purely spiritual — knowing that each of us shines- now and eternally- as a unique expression of infinite Love — we experience healing. The result is wellness- opportunity- spiritual progress- and the highest degree of joy.Lyle Young- CSB is a Christian Science practitioner- teacher and lecturer. A deep and broad love motivates Lyle- a love of God- of the ideas in the Bible and in the published writings of Mary Baker Eddy. His love and affection for humanity is expressed in a keen interest in cultures- languages- history- the arts- and sports. Lyle runs and swims regularly and is a four-season cyclist. The latter sport relates to his support for the environment.
