The magazine Paracelsus Health & Healing turns 15 years
The magazine Health & Healingis a service activity that seeks to help physicians, healers, health professionals, the sick, and, more generally, all those who are interested in health. The work is dedicated to the health of humanity.
We go back to the year 2003. Some members of WTT-Global had a vision. In the spirit of the great physician and healer PARACELSUS, they wanted to publish a magazine that combines both traditional and modern healing knowledge.
As inspiration served the four volumes “The complete works of Paracelsus”.
Already in 1999, the foundation of this vision was laid when during a seminar Dr K. Parvathi Kumar and its participants visited the birthplace of Paracelsus in the municipality Egg – not far from the well-known pilgrimage site Einsiedeln in Switzerland. There was a room which was accessible to visitors. This space – a small apartment with kitchen and bathroom – was vacant and rented by us.
This was how the present-day << Paracelsus-Centre>> came into being. A meditation room was set up in which rituals have been held on special occasions to date.
During another seminar at Einsiedeln, Dr Kumar explained the project “Paracelsus Health & Healing magazine” to all of its participants and asked for their participation if interested. He himself took over the presidency.
Each job required people of good will who were willing to dedicate their time and their personal commitment to this project following the altruistic work Paracelsus.
Many groups formed with very different fields of activities. Since the magazine should appear internationally, people were needed who supported the editorial work. Upon the request of Dr Kumar friends and members around the world volunteered to participate in this great work.
The editors were made familiar with the idea that authors should be asked to pass on their knowledge to readers free of charge. However, every article would appear with a small biography and a photo of the author.
Articles had to be researched, translated into several language, and proof read. The layout had to be created, printed and dispatched. Initially, the magazine was published twelve times a year on a monthly basis. In order to keep the costs as low as possible and to ensure a regular appearance, the magazine was printed by ourselves.
The marketing department went public with the magazine, presented the magazine on health fairs, asked companies for adverts and acquired subscribers to cover the original costs.
It was a great pleasure for everyone involved but also a challenge.
For 12 years the Paracelsus magazine appeared in print. Then, adapting to the spirit of the times, it became digital
Since the beginning of 2016, the magazine <<HEALTH & HEALING >> has been exclusively published online. It means that all those who are interested have free access to all articles anytime and from anywhere in the world. In this way the idea of making “traditional and modern knowledge freely available to anyone in the spirit of PARACELSUS” was put into practice.
In the year 2017, the editor-in-chief changed after 14 years. At this point we want to express our heartfelt thanks to the editor-in-chief and initiator of the magazine for 14 years of intensive and kind cooperation.
Once a year, the editorial team meets for an exchange of ideas at the <<Paracelsus-Centre>> in September, the month of Virgo. We are always looking for new ways to promote our magazine. Perhaps it is an idea for our readers to participate in the great work of PARACELSUS by putting the link www.paracelsusmagazin.chunder their business and private mail.
Finally, we would like to extend our warmest thanks to all the people who contributed to the regular publication of the magazine by giving their time and commitment throughout all these years.
In our experience, people have always responded with great admiration no matter where and to whom we presented the magazine Health & Healing. On the one hand important new and traditional healing knowledge is passed on, and on the other hand it is quite remarkable that in the present time there are still people who volunteer for such a project.
Companies and many interested people pay us respect, tribute, and compliments. At this point we would like to sincerely thank all those who support the Paracelsus magazine through articles or donations as well as companies who place adverts in the Paracelsus Health & Healing magazine.
Above all, we extend our heartfelt thanks to the great doctor and master PARACELSUS and Master KPK because without their great support on all planes this work would have never been accomplished.
We wish you all a fulfilling time.
Your Paracelsus Team
