Connect With Confidence and Consistency

You’ve already learned some basics. You’ve connected with your own loved ones. Perhaps you’ve practiced with peers or in a circle.

And you might not think of yourself as a “medium.” Or maybe you’re exploring the idea of professional mediumship.

Either way … you wish you felt more confident. You still get in your head. And you want to become more skilled overall.

Your Questioning Mind: Is It Really Spirit?

Sometimes you’re sure you’ve made a genuine connection. But you don’t always know. And sometimes it feels like you’re getting bits and pieces more than messages.

In fact, you still question yourself … “Is this information truly coming from Spirit? Or is it just my  own mind?” You wish you could discern more clearly.

Welcome to Level 1 Mediumship!

Level 1 is all about deepening your ability to make strong, consistent mediumship connections. And with our holistic focus, it’s also about identifying and addressing your personal blocks — especially that voice of doubt that lives in your head.

Whether you aspire to be a professional medium or not, we welcome you to our learning community!

And, our unique teaching team is comprised of two professional mediums plus one professional personal coach. Classes alternate between instruction and practice.

Join Our Safe, Supportive Learning Community

We know your inner judge voice is loud enough — you don’t need anyone else adding to it!

We are very intentional in the ways that we create a very safe, supportive and structured class environment.

Class size is small. It is always safe to make mistakes … or to have that practice reading when absolutely nothing comes to you. We support you through all of that and more. And we always champion your growth.

A New Teaching Approach

We’ve seen that every person connects a little differently — it’s not “one size fits all.” That’s why we have three instructors — so you get multiple perspectives and support.

And we use a whole-person approach. Our team includes a professional coach who shows you to work harmoniously with your body, emotions, nervous system and energy.

Student Experiences

“I have taken two classes with Amy and Nancy and both far exceeded my expectations.

The format was inclusive and the conversations flowed comfortably.

It was very supportive and easy to ask questions without fear of judgment.

Highly recommend to anyone interested in exploring their intuition or building skills.”

– Diana D., Georgia

“Amy is a tremendously gifted medium and teacher– the mediums’ medium. I had one course with Amy and immediately reached out for more!

… The course I took with Amy and Nancy is one of the key markers in my mediumship development.  Outstanding content and methods. Professional. Ethical.”

– Patty F.
