For Beginners No Experience Required

Do you want to learn how to connect with your own loved ones — even though you don’t have any experience?

Are you curious about Guides and how to communicate with them?

Are you making unexpected connections or having medium experiences but don’t know what to do?

Getting started with connections to the Other Side is exciting…

… And it can feel a little intimidating, too. Our class is a very safe, very friendly environment that welcomes beginners — including those with no experience at all — who have a sincere desire to explore making medium connections for themselves.

Learn the basic building blocks for making connections.

Learning to connect can feel like learning a new language. As we introduce new skills one at a time, you’ll be using your brain and body in exciting new ways. And, you’ll find yourself connecting more deeply with your own soul.

We’re here to help you grow.

In class, you’ll learn to make medium connections using healthy boundaries and control. You’ll develop your individual “clairs” — the different ways of sensing that mediums use to communicate with the other side. We’ll help you leverage your strongest senses and develop your weaker ones.

If you’re like every one of us, sooner or later, you’ll experience some doubt.

Doubt about yourself. About your  intuition. About your connections! You’ll overthink it, get in your own way, and wonder what the heck you’re doing here. That’s all part of the normal process, and we’ll support you through that!

And, it’s not only about the mechanics.

Yes, we focus on skills, but’s that’s not all. Making medium connections is also about keeping good boundaries, taking care of yourself, dealing with emotions, and building your confidence.

What about practice?

You’ll get lots of individual exercises and tools that will help you build your foundational skills. We’ll do some activities in class, and you’ll have some as homework. Note that you will not be doing any practice readings with anyone else.

Why won’t we do practice readings with each other?

Making connections for others requires skills that we don’t teach in this class. We’ve found that jumping into readings for others before you’re really ready is not a good idea. It often creates discouragement and doubt. At this level, we focus on giving you a strong foundation for developing your core skills. You’ll strengthen your own abilities and skills so you can make better, stronger, more reliable connections with your own loved ones.

A Student’s Experience

“When I first signed up for this course I was searching for reassurance and answers:

“Why is this happening to me”? “What am I supposed to do about it as it is causing me anxiety and fear”? It: meaning random and unsolicited spirit connections.

This course was perfect for me! I am learning that I need not be afraid of the unsolicited connections that are happening to me, but to embrace this part of me which is indeed a part of our higher power.

I am learning that by embracing these experiences and setting my boundaries I am able to control and or also aid in these connections.

Spirits are the people we love existing in a different realm, and they just want to connect. By learning to accept this unique part of me, my fear and anxiety are diminishing. By attending this course I have received so much more than I anticipated.

Amy and Nancy present Mediumship Foundations via the Whole Mediumship Academy in a welcoming, non-intimidating, educating and reassuring environment.

They work together to offer a well-rounded course curriculum that nurtures and educates the student as a whole.

I would highly recommend this course to both the beginner who needs to start somewhere and also to the novice that just wants to fine tune their basic skills.” — Sharon B., Alabama
