Simon James has been a tutor and course organizer at the Arthur Findlay College where he has taught both students and instructors of mediumship since 1992. He is a minister of the Spiritualists' National Union, vice-president of the Inner Quest Foundation and minister at the Open Door Sanctuary in Victoria, Canada. He holds a degree in Applied Psychology and has more than 30 years experience in the art of the tarot, its mythology, and its practice.
James is one of today’s finest classical spiritual mediums and a living link to the British tradition of the early 20th century. He was one of only a few mediums trained by the renowned Gordon Higginson, then President of the Spiritualists’ National Union and principal of the Arthur Findlay College where, some years later, Simon James himself became its youngest tutor. James subsequently founded the Spirit of Youth and was also a founding member of Spiritualist Aid.
A much sought-after author and spiritual lecturer, Simon James is a healer whose depth of knowledge about mythology, psychology, ancient religions, and esoteric traditions underlies the richness of his teaching.
