Working With Trance

This workshop is designed to provide both a basic understanding of theoretical aspects of the trance states as well as practical exercises designed to further the development of trance.
The workshop introduces the following aspects:

– Understanding perception and control
– To explore our perceptions of trance
– Mechanics of mediumship
– To provide an insight into the various states of trance
– Practical exercises designed to develop trance
– Practice sitting for trance

“Who should join the workshop?” “Would I be suitable?” “I’m not a trance medium, is it for me?”   All familiar questions but, simply applicants should have an interest in trance mediumship, be enthusiastic to participate, but most of all be open and willing to work. There are people who are more easily developed in this field, but all applicants should recognize that during this workshop, participants will progress at a different rate. Disappointment is only borne of high expectation. Better to come, enjoy the experience in a friendly, supportive atmosphere and be prepared for whatever level of achievement the group achieve as a whole.

Demonstration of Trance Mediumship (A conversation with spirit)

There are two parts to this demonstration:  First, Robin and Richard will give you background information relating to Trance Mediumship.  Second, we will sit in séance to allow for a demonstration of Trance Mediumship.  During that time there may be a philosophical conversation with one of their spiritual teachers, there may be an opportunity to ask a question or two of the spiritual teacher and other aspects of mediumship may be displayed.  All of this will depend on the group energetic and what the spiritual teacher feels is appropriate for the evening.
