    The key to tomorrows health

    Washington DC Saturday - May 2, 2009     03:00 PM

    An international panel of physicians will speak about:
    “Help and healing through the teachings of Bruno Groening - medically verifiable”

    Everybody who is interested in this topic is warmly invited. This event is free of charge

    The experts will present healing reports. Healed persons speak about their healings.

    Incomprehensible healings, even so-called incurable illnesses occurred during the public addresses given by Bruno Groening (1906-1959). In every city where Bruno Groening went, thousands of people gathered together with one hope: to be free from disease and pain. The unbelievable took place. Lame people stood up from their wheelchairs. Blind people could see again. Deaf people could hear. Newspapers and TV-stations reported headlines like: "Bruno Groening heals the lame, the blind and the mute".

    These healings continue happening today, even after his death. Through the teachings he left behind, his work has continued to grow. In every European country and on every continent, there are numerous communities keeping his teachings alive. Thousands of healings have taken place in all parts of the world, which are then checked and carefully documented by the Medical Scientific Group, which has been established in the Circle of Friends.

    During the lectures, information about Bruno Groening, his teachings and the healings will be explained. Everybody will have the opportunity to experience the healing force in their own body and also learn to help others. More than 100,000 people worldwide have attended these lectures.

    The Medical Scientific Group (MWF) of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends invites you to attend a free lecture by the following international panel:

    Sussan Tahmasebi Lecture @ UCLA

    Los Angeles Saturday - May 2, 2009     04:30 PM

    Sussan Tahmasebi is a women's rights and civil society activist based in Iran. A founding member of the One Million Signatures Campaign, an effort which seeks to reform laws discriminating against women, she works as a member of the public relations committee and serves as the editor of the English Language website of the Campaign, Change for Equality. For the past ten years she has worked in Iran at the national and grassroots level to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations and to address gender issues and women's rights. She has conducted numerous trainings, including women's leadership and women and peace-building, has coordinated the development of training manuals, including ones addressing women's rights and children's rights in Iran, and has convened several international conferences and events on women. Prior to her work in Iran, Ms. Tahmasebi worked for nearly ten years in NGOs based in the US addressing women's reproductive and health issues with a focus on the needs of underserved populations and communities of color, including immigrants and refugees.
    The One Million Signatures Campaign was founded in August 2006 by a group of Iranian women's activists. Its main aim is simple: to collect one million signatures from Iranian citizens in support of a petition demanding an end to laws that discriminate against women. It is a peaceful movement, and is at the present time the most vibrant and widespread element of Iran's civil society. The Campaign is at the present time active in more than 20 Iranian cities and provinces and 13 countries around the world. The One Million Signatures Campaign has been awarded the prestigious Global Women’s Rights Award from the Feminist Majority Foundation (FMF) and also has been awarded the Simone de Beauvoir Award which was established in honor and memory of this Feminist theorist and writer in 2009.
