I have developed a series of 12 video classes which together make up make up a unique and comprehensive course on the theory of mental mediumship titled "A Course in Medumship". These classes were inspired and influenced by the quality teaching I have received over the past 10 years from the tutors at the prestigious Arthur Findlay College where I am now an Approved Tutor myself.
In addition, I have developed a further 8 videos on Special Topics to support and add to the original videos. The special topics videos cover Trance Mediumship, Spiritual Healing, Trance Healing, Spirit Inspiration, Guides & Helpers, Spiritual Development, Psychic Development and Mediumship & the Mind.
The videos are unique in their content and offer students a new and interesting way to learn the theory underlying mediumship. Each class uses a tutorial format and comprises formal teaching supported by illustrations and exercises.
The classes are available on DVD and as digital video downloads and each typically lasts about 2 hours. The DVDs cost £13 each plus postage and packaging. Video downloads cost £10 each. Both DVDs and downloads can be purchased from the Shop or by clicking on this link.
The titles of each DVD and the topics covered are shown below. Alternatively you can download a pdf of the mediumship class DVD contents by clicking on this link:
You can preview clips from the earlier versions of the 12 DVDs by clicking on these links although classes 1 to 12 have since been fully revised and re-produced to a higher standard.

Please note: The videos were recorded during live classes using a static camera and include audience interaction and limited student participation. Whilst the production quality is not that associated with professional studios, this does not detract from their value as teaching aids and feedback to date has been very positive.
Note on Formats:
DVDs are available in PAL widescreen (Europe and Australasia) and NTSC widescreen (US & Canada) formats. The videos were recorded in PAL format and converted to NTSC so the NTSC format is slightly lower quality. Please ensure you purchase the correct format for your region if wishing to play on a DVD player or computer.
