Are there schools for psychic mediums?

Are there schools for psychic mediums?

by Bob Olson,, &

Psychic mediumship (spirit communication) isn’t being taught at Stanford, Yale or Harvard, at least not yet. But, as I mentioned in an earlier answer, Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, England does focus on psychic and mediumistic development. And more and more psychics and mediums are traveling there for a week or two at a time.

Does a week or two at Arthur Findlay College make an excellent medium? No, but it shows that the psychic medium who goes there is doing what she can to improve her ability. So it’s a sign that the psychic medium is serious about improving their ability if a psychic medium has made that investment in them self.

Secondly, there are dozens of psychic mediums who offer instruction for psychic and mediumistic development. Most of these classes are for beginners, but a few offer more advanced development classes. Of course, it’s important to note that just because someone is a good psychic or psychic medium doesn’t necessarily mean they are a good teacher. While some of these instructors surely are talented teachers, some psychic mediums are not.

I find it impressive to see that a psychic medium invests in a program of some sort in order to improve his or her ability. It’s evidence that this psychic medium is doing what he can to give better readings. But then it’s important to me to know who is behind the organization offering the program and who is teaching it. In my mind, if it’s a reputable organization and a reputable teacher to boot, it adds credibility to that psychic medium’s résumé.
