14.6-15.6.2024 Exploring your Soul and Spirit

MINIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 10 people/workshop in order for the groups to be realized (the realization will be confirmed by 15 April 2024) 

Adam is excited to visit Finland to share in teachings of the Soul and Spirit. His teachings will cover Sitting in the power which is a fundamental aspect to all of life and our spiritual work. He  will also cover exploring the psychic faculty through the auric field to assess your peers and working creatively with colour. 

We will be exploring the power of healing which of course is the leading thread throughout all work with Spirit. We will doing exercises with evidential mediumship to deepen and strengthen your understanding and communication with those people unseen. His passion is the philosophy of soul and your personal expression. 

Adam has a nurturing teaching style and he feels it is important to bring the best out of his students, and also exploring the potential of each student that has their own unique pathway of the soul. 

Adam Berry is a modern-day Spiritualist medium with traditional values, who grew up in and around Bury, Lancashire. Adam was awarded the Spiritualist National Union's (SNU) prestigious Gordon Higginson Memorial Scholarship Award in 2016 and has since been awarded a Certificate of recognition with the SNU csnu (t) in speaking , Demonstrating and teaching, and has met the standard to become a assistant tutor at the Arthur Finlay college (AFC). Passing all 3 assessment weeks Adam decided that AFC is not for him at this time but will continue to work with his passion and integrity of the Spirit.

Adam is known for his compassion and dedication in serving others searching for proof of survival of the soul after physical death. This belief has led him to seek the very highest of standards in mediumship and knowledge of the Soul & Spirit, and he continues to study to this day in order to be of service. From experiences as a young child, his desire and drive to gain knowledge led him to study at The AFC, the world-renowned college for the advancement of Spiritualism and psychic sciences, which opened his mind and Spiritual development further.

.Adam considers himself privileged to have experienced some wonderful tutoring and teachings from many well-respected tutors over the years, however it was Mavis Pittilla who helped mentor and nurture Adam into the well-respected medium he is today.

Adam is internationally recognised. He sees mediumship as a healing and celebration between two worlds, and he delights in opening the minds of others through talks, workshops, and his demonstrations of Mediumship.  

Adam sees himself as not only a promoter and proof seeker of life after life, but a promoter of life within life, as we have a life and Soul purpose to live here and now. We can have the comfort of knowing that our Soul does live on after the physical death.

MINIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 8 people/workshop in order for the groups to be realized (the realization will be confirmed by 15 April 2024)


At the workshop we will concentrate on how to give a private reading. We pay attention to the flow of the reading:

  • how to prepare for the reading day
  • how to prepare before the client
  • how to welcome your client
  • how to start the reading
  • how to keep your energy raised all the time
  • how to keep your attention with the spirit communicator
  • how to give relevant information of the spirit person
  • how you face your client
  • how to respond to answers no
  • how to face the challenging situations
  • how to be ethical
  • how to deliver the message
  • how to end the reading

We do one to one readings and after the exercise we together talk about them. Feedback is important part of the learning process. Every participant gets personal feedback and advice.

This workshop is for you if you are still exercising or are already doing private readings!

We are working hard but with the good mood and humour! Come and learn with good company!


At the workshop we will have mediumistic demonstrations and our own group is the audience. As a platform medium it is important to express your true self, the confident self. We will focus on positive body language and how this helps to engage the audience.

We are learning how to stay in your own bubble of energy as this will help to keep your spiritual link. We will also focus on the three important elements of the communication:

  • who is the communicator from the spirit world
  • who in the audience is the message going to
  • what do they have to say

We will learn how to let the spirit world blend closer to us so as we have no doubts about the communicator. We also learn how to let the energy flow guide us to the recipient.

The focus will be also on the content of the message from the family/ friend from the spirit world. 

Afterwards we will talk together about the exercises and have feedback. Feedback is important part of the learning process. Every participant gets personal feedback and advices.

This workshop is for you if you are still exercising or already working on the platform!

We are working hard but with the good mood and humour! Come and learn with good company!

Alan Craig

11.-12.6.2024  Exploration of Trance states within mediumship
14.-15.6.2024 Active mediumship

MINIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 8 people/workshop in order for the groups to be realized (the realization will be confirmed by 15 April 2024) 


This course is open to everyone who desires to enrich and nourish their spirit and soul no matter their level of experience. We will have fun as a group exploring the trance state but will also work hard to unfold our true potential.

His philosophy as a teacher is to help expand the knowledge of each student concerning mediumship and trance. I believe that we all have the potential to move our minds and consciousness to unlock new unexplored levels within our mediumship with trance.

Meditation and empowerment are our essential building blocks to expand our knowledge and understanding of our own true self. This also has a positive impact on our self belief giving us the ability to trust our mediumship and move beyond the comfortable level.

We will look at the passive and active states within mediumship and how trance states are used to improve our connection with the world of spirit. We will experiment with healing in the trance condition. We will also focus on active mediumship, connecting to the world of spirit to bring messages of comfort, hope and upliftment.

We will spend some time exploring who is the spirit team working with you and for what reason in your development. We will support each other as a team to explore our true potential.


Alan Craig is a passionate teacher who will gently guide you to reach your true potential.

Within active mediumship we will focus on the senses such as clairsentience and clairvoyance to make our connection to the spirit world and bring messages from our beloved friends and family.

We will make time to discuss the practical issues we may face during the exercises. We will work together to create a fun environment where everyone feels valued and relaxed.

To reach our potential it is essential to sit in the power. Our preparation for exercises will include meditation and empowerment. We will also explore the psychic level of mediumship and how we extract accurate information. Using different exercises that are fun, informative and challenging. 

We will support each other as a team to explore our true potential.

Alan Craig is from Scotland.  Alan Craig has been aware of spiritual phenomena since childhoodToday he lives in Finland and works as a Spiritual medium and healer. Trance is his passion. Yes that old saying 'trance can only enhance' is very much true.

Annie ja Vesa 

11.-12.6.2024 Mediumistic-etheric Phenomenas  (2 days)
14.-15.6.2024 Various methods of Trance states (2 days)

MINIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 8 people/workshop in order for the groups to be realized (the realization will be confirmed by 15 April 2024) 


Join us to explore the existence of the Spirit World not only with your mediumistic abilities but also with various technical equipment (recorder, camera, EVP, Ghost Box etc).

We as tutors of this workshop promise you a safe and supportive atmosphere in order to have intresting and uplifting experience and evidence of the existence of the Spirit World not forgetting to have fun too - everyone succeeds!

Those who wish to develop their mediumistic abilities, this workshop offers you a great opportunity to practise and to have technical evidence in addition to the mediumistic evidence.

This workshop suits all, only the open mind, enthusiasm and the desire to explore the various aspects of Spiritualism is needed. 
You are free to take your own cell phone, camera, recorder etc with you.


Through altered states of mind you are able to experience closer connection to the Sprit World We tutors feel that it is essential for a medium to explore and to get to know different energies, the passive as well as the active. We find that trance state exercises develop also the active medium's work, evidential mediumship.

In this group we surrender to the quidance of the Spirit World and study the various ways of trance state. You will have the opportunity to sit in the trance cabinet and to practise trance writing, -drawing, trance healing as well as trance speaking.

As each exercise is individual and supported by the Spirit World you need not to have any earlier experience of trance states. But those who have, may have the opportunity to deepen their connection as well as expore some new aspects according to their desire.

In case you want to explore your own potential and you are open to various ways of trance states – welcome to our group!

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.
