Dr. Gabriele Machacek, M.D., to speak in Appleton, Oshkosh and Green Bay on a natural way to attain help and healing

Dr. Gabriele Machacek, a General Practitioner and Associate Physician in Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in Austria, will give a lecture in Appleton, Oshkosh and Green Bay this June about a natural, cost-free way of attaining healing and help through the teachings of Bruno Groening.

Bruno Groening made headlines in 1950’s post-war Germany when tens of thousands of wounded and sick sought help from him. He implored the help-seekers to turn their thoughts away from illness and worries and take up the belief in God, in health and in the good, and return to neighborly love for one another. “There is no incurable,” he said, and, “God is the greatest physician.” Many were healed, some of them on the spot, rising from their wheelchairs and stretchers simply from listening to his words. After he passed away in 1959, the healings continued. Today Bruno Groening Circle of Friends communities are active in more than 120 countries and include Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Jews and followers of Indigenous traditions.

As a teenager, having seen her own mother healed of severe migraines and back pain, and then receiving a healing from depression herself, Dr. Machacek became convinced of the value of Groening’s teachings. She is a member of the Medical Scientific Group, which is made up of thousands of physicians and other medical professionals who meticulously verify and document the healings that occur in the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends. At the lecture, she will will present some of these medically-verified healings and talk about how to take in a natural power that can heal. Many experience this healing stream during the lecture.

Some of the many healings Dr. Machacek has helped review and document include a 69-year-old woman from Vancouver, Washington who was freed of 25 years of insomnia and of very severe lower back pain caused by sciatica and arthritis of the spine; a 44-year-old man from Istanbul, Turkey freed from severe pain caused by herniated discs; a 65-year-old woman from Quebec, Canada healed of breast cancer; and a 58-year-old woman from Arvada, Colorado who was relieved of chronic back pain caused by vertebral fractures.

These healings are among the many thousands housed in an archive in Rottenburg, Bavaria.

Bruno Groening refused payment of any kind, saying it was not he who healed, but God. The only thing he asked of healed people was that they write down their healings and get follow-up examinations and documentation from their doctors. Today in the Circle of Friends, everyone, including physicians like Dr. Machacek, volunteer in their free time and receive no payment of any kind.

Dr. Machacek says that Bruno Groening’s teachings, in conjunction with the absorption of the healing stream, bring universal benefits that go beyond physical and mental healing, including help with studies and work and healthier family relationships. She described its effects on her own life, saying it has imparted her with clear, inner guidance, a strong sense of security, and the energy and positive attitude to carry her through 30-hour hospital shifts. She feels passionate about wanting to share this opportunity for help and healing with as many as possible.

“When I see people walk into a lecture — tired, sad and irritable — and then leave with happiness, then I’m glad,” she said. “It’s the way for me to also bring joy to others.” 

Dr. Machacek will speak in Appleton at the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel on June 25 at 4:30 p.m.;

in Oshkosh at Oshkosh Fox Valley Technical College at the Oshkosh Riverside Campus on June 24 at 3:30 p.m.;

and in Green Bay on June 27 at the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel at 7 p.m.

The lecture is free, donations are appreciated. For more information, call 920-461-1687 or visit
