Since its establishment more than half a century ago, Hotel Marbella Club has accumulated a wealth of history, full of extraordinary and unforgettable moments. The beach resort in Spain has been a meeting place for the international jet-set: aristocrats, stars of the entertainment world, business leaders and famous figures from all over the world.
It all started in 1946, when Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe and his father, Prince Max, visited Marbella with the idea of buying some land. The following year, Alfonso purchased Finca Santa Margarita as a family residence. As the number of visitors to the 'finca' steadily grew, so did the property, and eventually the Prince, sparked with the pioneering enthusiasm and the visionary ideas that distinguish those who are ahead of their time, was able to make his dream come true, transforming his private residence into an exclusive Marbella club.

I have mixed feelings about Digital Journals article No Free Wi-Fi Biggest Hotel Guest Complaint. Should Wi-Fi really be a top priority when going on vacation? However, I don´t think it´s OK 2014 to charge that much, up to $10 an hour, for using a hotel service like Wi-Fi.
One of the biggest complaints that hotel guests have is the lack of free Wi-Fi in their rooms. Guests believe that all hotels should offer free Internet connection and think it is more important that many other hotel amenities.
Guests even ranked free Wi-Fi higher than a hotel having a swimming pool or being close to attractions and services.

The documentary The Condemned from director Nick Read captures the lives at Penal Colony 56, a prison in the heart of Russia surrounded by a vast dense forrest. I found the documentary disturbing, but at the same time beautiful and tranquil, mostly by the nature`s beauty and magical images from a Russia in winter.

Thoughts on the Documentary Film The Phenomenon Bruno Groening - On the tracks of the "Miracle Healer"
I've now seen the documentary film The Phenomenon Bruno Groening - On the tracks of the "Miracle Healer". It's a well made documentary. It's full of information, fascinating contemporary witness interviews and reenacted events.
The documentary is divided into three parts. It took 9 years to produce 5 hours of film. More than 2000 extras were involved, e.g. to reenact the famous events in Traberhof where mass healings took place. It's subtitled in 30 languages and the options for the voice track are German, English, French, Croatian, Polish, Russian and Spanish.
It is undeniably a fascinating documentary that I highly recommend!
You order the documentary from Grete Häusler Verlag. Currently, there´s no digital option to choose from. Together with the DVD, I ordered a booklet of 36 pages, The Teaching of Bruno Gröning (Introductory Set), with an introductory CD included. Here you´ll get information about how to do "einstellen" and read about, among other things, eye witness reports from Bruno Groening's life and success reports of today.

Bob Roth, the vice president of the David Lynch Foundation, visited the Katie Couric Show discussing the benefits of doing transcendental meditation. For those of you who are interested to learn transcendental meditation, either visit a TM Center or feel free to read my previous post about some good alternatives to Transcendental Meditation.

A while ago, I ordered the documentary The Phenomenon Bruno Groening - On the track of the " Miracle Healer ". It´s about the german healer Bruno Groening (1906 - 1959) and all the miraculous healings he brought about.
The basic message of the teachings of Bruno Groening is that there is a higher power available to assist and help people. Bruno speaks about a healing stream which originates directly from this higher power, and by putting ourselves in contact and tune in to the healing stream we can stay healthy and be healed of diseases. The technique for doing so is called "einstellen" which is the german word for tuning in. I´m not completely unfamiliar with this process since I´m a Reiki practitioner, however, I´m unsure whether practitioners of Bruno Groening use handpositions as we do in Reiki.
