In this episode I speak with Trevor Steele who is the leader of the Adelaide chapter of the Circle of Friends of Bruno Göring. It is Bruno Göring we mainly talk about, although Trevor’s brief back story is also interesting. Bruno was a German spiritual healer who was most prominent in his practice after Word War 2 from 1949 through the 1950s when he attended what must have been hundreds of thousands of chronically ill, traumatised and wounded people. Trevor says the large grounds where Bruno saw the majority of the people became known as the field of misery, a really powerful image when you imagine 20,000 or 30,000 suffering people gathered together awaiting healing from all manner of afflictions, including paralysis, blindness and crippling pains.
By all accounts Bruno not only had an abundance of love for all the people in need but actually healed many thousands from conditions considered untreatable. It is a remarkable story that I would have had a lot of trouble believing if I hadn’t watched the documentary about him that you can find on YouTube. Trevor is an excellent person to narrate this story, himself having started and then stopped a catholic ministry, moving into atheism, before experiencing his own spiritual healing. The issue of spiritual healing raises many scientific, ethical and spiritual questions and I hope this account will inspire you to ponder these as it did for me.
