Speakers

International presenters and professionals gathering to explore the frontier between science and spirit.

Sheila French

Spiritual Medium & Mediumship Trainer

Sheila’s original education was with the Sciences, and she went on to run her own hospitality business. She began developing mediumship in 1993 following the death of her mother-in-law, and undertook formal studies at The Arthur Findlay College in Stansted and later went on to become an advanced Diploma holder in Teaching and joined the faculty. She opened her own International School of Excellence in Psychic and Spiritual studies 18 years ago, which has been going from strength to strength ever since. She travels extensively throughout Europe, where she is recognised as a caring and spiritual teacher. Within Switzerland, she has been documented in the press, and her trance work has been called highly evidential and life-changing.

In recent years, she has worked with several Universities on the study of the science of the act of mediumship and she now finds herself talking and working with those who are interested in how Spirituality and the phenomena work together within the mind of the practitioner, bringing a greater understanding to the possibility that enlightenment is open to all.  || www.ershamstar.co.uk
