Stella Upton

Enhancing your Evidential Mediumship

As an evidential medium you are a very important part of a team, alongside those in the spirit world who work with you. Come and join Stella to learn how to enhance your relationship with your team, finding out who they are, being aware of unusual specific information and meaningful evidence for the sitter.

All mediums work differently, so this is the best time to discover what works best for you as an individual, as well as to be led towards new avenues that are open to you. Learn to take the pressure off your mediumship, working with the support of an experienced tutor. Let true communication begin.

There will be new experiments with Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience, looking at hand signals, symbols within mediumship and self-empowerment. Prepare to work as an individual as well as taking part in group exercises. The practice of private sittings will also form part of this course.

Stella Upton is a popular English psychic and teacher with 30 years of experience. She has taught at Arthur Findlay Collage since 1999 and also works elsewhere in the UK and abroad. Stella teaches on a wide scale, e.g. message delivery, consciousness, spiritual art, meditation and paranormal phenomena. As her latest conquest, she has an aura graph painting! 

Steven Upton

Trance Control and Healing

In this course we will be looking at how the altered states of consciousness and healing mediumship go together along with inspirational and controlled speaking. We will experiment with the controlled states and try to bring an understanding of how they can benefit the development of all forms of mental mediumship.

Steven Upton's medial path has already started in 1971 and since 1980 he has specialized in medial healing. At the same time, he also developed trance control and in 1993 trance and healing came together in one event. This began a long journey of development that has led him to become the trance healing and trance speech expert he is today.

Steven has also developed his physical mediumship, which can be seen in trance healing as direct physical effects on patients. Everything Steve teaches is based on personal experience and not what I may have read or heard others teach.

Tuula Jukola-Nuorteva

Evidential mediumship

In evidential mediumship we strengthen the ability to trust more strongly in the presence and connection of the loving spirit world. Under the guidance of a loving spirit world and with the help of versatile exercises, our ability to recognize the coming of the spirit world with quick, clear facts strengthens and we become more aware of what we sense with our different senses. The meaning of the message, which is the responsibility of the recipient, deepens from the general level to the most meaningful levels. We also fix our way of speaking and strengthen our skills to express things clearly, encouragingly and valuing the listener.

Tuula Jukola-Nuorteva has worked as a medium for over 20 years. She studied mediumistic skills in London at the College of Psychic Studies under Gerrie Mach for several years while completing her Healing studies. After her studies, Tuula was invited to the College of Psychic Studies to work as a psychic and teacher. Over the years, he taught weekly mediumship training classes at the College and led workshops, held mediumship sessions and gave private sessions. Tuula also frequently visited spiritualist churches and services in London as a medium.

Since 2000, Tuula has also visited and worked in the Finnish Spiritualist Society, Spiritual Development clubs and summer seminars as a medium and teacher as well as an instructor in national medial basic and advanced courses and Spiritual Knowledge courses. As a professional pedagogue, Tuula strongly believes that the instructor's most important task is to make students shine in a safe, encouraging and positive atmosphere.

Tapio Voutilainen

Healing Workshop- learn to know the inner movements and rhythms of your body

What is your body's cranial rhythm? The tissues of the human body have a cranial rhythm, meaning a fysiological rhythm like heart beat or the rhythm of the breething. It can be disturbed by stress, strain or accident. With cranial rhythms it is possible to correct the dislocations emerged in the human body.

When you learn to know your own body, you will learn to take better care of its comprehensive well-being In this workshop we will examine the inner movements and rhythms of the body You will learn to recognise the tensions in your body and get the tools to relieve them. When your body is feeling good, so is your mind and your brains are sharp.

This workshop is for everyone who is intrested in well-being and healing

SHAMANISM COURSE 2 DAYS, 6.-7.10.2023

In this shamanic course we intend to deepen our connection to the nature, nature spirits, power animals and our own spiritual quides by drumming, meditation and other techniques and start to awaken and seek for our personal spiritual development as well as we start to reach out for our best potential as a human being. By varioius techniques and rituals we are also able to have advice and answers to our questions and to have more balance and strength for our everyday life.

Now you have unique possibility to join us in Taivaan Valkeat, Lapland, Finland – the most amazing nature around us!



Annie has always been aware of the unseen world and had her first personal strong experience at the age of 11. Ever since she has studied and trained different aspects of mediumship (trance, trance healing, shamanic path, evidential mediumship and spirit art) in Finland as well as taken courses for over 10 years in the famous Arthur Findlay College in the UK. For many years Annie was a chairman of a Spiritual Society in Turku and has been, and still is, organizing spiritual tutorial sessions and courses as well as private sittings face to face and via Zoom.


Vesa has also always had a certain awareness of the existens of the unseen world and he has been aware of the spirit helpers around him. As human beings it is importat to live our daily life and Vesa has always strived to take care of his responsibilites as well as he could have. Vesa has also worked some periods of time abroad so, the actual spiritual studying has become bigger part of his life not until later when he was able to leave his daily job. Ever since Vesa has taken a huge leap in his spirituality and he wants to give credit for this, along with his Spirit helpers, to Mrs Anu Väisänen, who encouraged Vesa to start his spritual studies. Vesa has studied in Finland with Anu Väisänen and for over 10 years in the famous Arthur Findlay College in the UK. Vesa is doing trance healing, private sittings and having tutorial group sessions face to face and via Zoom.

Annie and Vesa live together in Pirkanmaa, Finland and share the dedication and love to the Spirit World and mediumship and the spiritual work to help others.

Annie and Vesa are intrested in various aspects of mediumship, but specially trance state and trance healing is very close to their heart. They both also share the intrest to physical mediumship and are open to new ways to combine different aspects of mediumship as their Spirit Teams have made them aware of that intrest too.

Annie and Vesa want to emphazise the importance of Sitting in the Power as it deepens the connection and blending with the Spirit World.

Colors and chakras

Find your inner self via the world of chakras and etheric oils - this is a journey to peace and self-knowledge!

We will use meditation and various practices to learn to know all the seven main chakras of a human being . We will also use the power of the aromatic oils, colours and music.

For each chakra there is a certain etheric oil, which helps us to dive deeper to the chakra concerned.

The purpose of this workshop is to find inner peace and balance of mind by learning to know the effects of chakras and the energies related to them. In the end of each practise we discuss together about the thoughts and feelings what each chakra has brought up in us.

To whom is this workshop? This workshop is for both the more experienced students as well as the beginners. You need not to know anything about the chakras. What you need is just an open mind and the intention to find the inner peace and to work together with others.

Kaija Sundberg is the owner of Valonsilta, Natural Treatment Center, and an experienced organizer of several well being events, as well as spiritual growth courses and seminars held yearly in Finland.

Kaija Sundberg´s Natural Healing Center Valonsilta is offering diverse therapies as well as Spiritual courses and private sittings in Tampere and Virrat (Finland).
