Group Healing Activities - An Overview
“Love is the basis for all health and healing activity”
The Masters of Wisdom are embodiments of healing magnetism. Their healing touch not only cures the sick but makes many of them healers. The wisdom teachings of Dr. E. Krishnamacharya and Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar inspired many group members to commit themselves to a voluntary healing work done in silence.
Healing groups have been formed in different parts of the globe to heal the sick through prayers and meditation according to a system which is ancient and yet universal.
Some members offer guided healing meditations for patients and interested people.
Homoeo Services in India
Under W.T.T. auspices, more than a hundred Homoeopathic dispensaries have been established so far in Andhra Pradesh and other Indian states. On an average, 50,000 people receive free treatment every month.
These centres of service are mostly self-supporting and do not look for any financial help from the Government or from private sources, though assistance and appreciation have always been received both from the society and the Government.
Homoeopathy classes are conducted from time to time and a cadre of selfless, dedicated voluntary doctors is built up, who are engaged in extending medical help even to remote rural areas.
In other countries, there are also homoeopathic services done by naturopaths and doctors. Homoeopathic medicines are prescribed to group members, their friends and relatives.
Care for the Dying
The theme of “death” is of particular importance. People have to be informed that only the body is subject to birth and death. The indwelling consciousness does not know these stages; at the moment of death it leaves the body. Master CVV says, “If you consciously exist, you do not die.”
A number of group members give grief and mourning counseling, accompany the dying people and, if needed, take care of the bereaved family. Where possible, they speak about spirituality and the soul: these talks are received with deep interest. Some also demonstrate practical exercises (e.g., to observe inhalation, exhalation) or work with the Narayana mantram, which helps departing souls to find the right direction after physical death.

The healing center “Le Caducée” in Corroy-Le-Grand near Brussels, Belgium, is run by members of WTT Belgium. It is functioning with several therapists who help the patients with different and complementary ways of healing: hand stimulation of the body, energetic healing, advice about nutrition, massage, and psychological therapy
Other Healing Work
A German member offers free music therapy sessions for people who would like to connect themselves deeper with their own inner resources.

Group members are learning and teaching the qualities and the healing effects of herbs and trees as well as producing tinctures and balms (such as beauty balm, poultice, ointment for rheumatism and gout). They conduct regular meetings and publish a monthly newsletter to over 1,500 readers to share their knowledge with a broader public.
