Take a deep dive into mediumship history and practices with Lauren Thibodeau from the Spiritualist community Lily Dale and artist Shannon Taggart.

Blending art with science and the past with the present, this workshop provides an introduction to Spiritualism as it’s practiced at Lily Dale, the world’s largest Spiritualist community.

Guided by Lauren Thibodeau, a Lily Dale registered medium, and Shannon Taggart, author of Séance, you learn how to develop yourself as a medium while you explore the history of this American-born religion. You examine the seance in all its forms, as well as other topics, including spoon bending, table tipping, medium’s cabinets, ectoplasm, materialization, trance and transfiguration, and instrumental-transcommunication, electronic voice phenomena, and psychic photography.

In a supportive environment, you discover your personal intuitive and mediumistic style, learn the five key elements of mediumship messages, practice discerning mediumistic evidence from “clairvoyant clutter,” and review ethical approaches to the practice.

No previous experience is necessary. All are welcome.
