Forensic Mediumship and Paranormal investigation

“ The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing” (Albert Einstein)

Course organiser: Nicole de Haas

Tutors: Nicole de Haas & Rosita Belkadi

Have you ever wondered what the role of a medium involves when it comes to assisting the police with solving crimes? Or to help families of a missing loved one? Nicole and Rosita both have many years of experience as a medium and also with forensic mediumship.

Join Nicole and Rosita on this course where we uncover the mysteries of cold cases, missing persons to answer questions that sometimes can only be answered by those on the other side. This course will introduce you to forensic mediumship and allow you also to deepen this aspect of mediumship on the psychic and mediumistic level with integrity.

Nicole and Rosita will give you an understanding of this specialized work as well as insight in different (historical) cases. They will invite you to use your mediumship and psychic ability in this field as we offer you during this course a “murder mystery evening”.

Please have a look at the course page for more details and sign up possibility.


The sacred Temple within

"There is a light that shines throughout your being; it's the sacred light of consciousness itself. Once you have recognized yourself in that light; experimentally not theoretically, you realize the ultimate truth" (Suzanne Tempel)

Course organiser: Suzanne Tempel

Tutors: Suzanne Tempel

The sacred Temple within; Mediumship from that divine space

It was one of our great pioneers; the late Gordon Higginson who said: “Before you can touch the spirit, you must first find it within yourself. For all the truth, all knowledge and all loving must first be found within oneself."

How much time do we spend as mediums finding (or rather abiding in) the Temple within? The place where we can find Truth, Love and Knowledge? It is not a personal 'Love & Truth' Gordon was talking about. Once we have found this ‘place’ and we start to work from this ‘place’ with our mediumship, miracles will happen.

This one day workshop is especially designed to first help you find this sacred temple within and have you experience what a difference this makes in your mediumship. This day is a spiritual day. More so than a ‘mediumship training day’. But of course, working with your mediumship will part of the day.

This is not a beginner workshop. You must have had some prior experience with self development and private sittings.

Demonstrating Mediumship -The next Step

"When we reach out a hand in trust, a bridge of love can be built." (Silver Cloud)

Course organiser: David Schiesser

Tutors: David Schiesser and guest tutor

The proof lies within the detail, especially when we think of the subject of  Demonstrating Mediumship. In today’s world we have the privilege and liberty to demonstrate our belief, the belief into the Spirit world, and mediumistic skills very freely but does this mean we can just rest on what was earned in the past by our pioneers? I think we can’t. Mediumistic development is an ongoing process and will never stop, and why should it.

This weekend course is designed for students who wish to work on their mediumistic skills to enhance the detail within spirit communication but also on how perceived information is presented to the public. This weekend will give you the opportunity to stretch yourself within your mediumistic work and to leave your comfort zone in a safe and nurturing environment. This course is not suitable for beginners.

Course organiser: Suzanne Tempel

Tutors: Suzanne Tempel

Interested in higher states of consciousness? Read books about Guru’s and Yogi’s like Paramhansa Yogananda? Learned about meditation and how to reach (in theory) a higher state?
