Creativity comes in many forms. We are all creative in one form or another. Some people are natural poets, musicians, writers, dancers or artists and driven by their innate abilities to create works of art that enhance society or culture. We are entertained by people gifted in the art of film making and storytelling in the cinema and television. Are we so overwhelmed by the outpouring of the creative arts that we are in danger of becoming blase to their gifts? Are we to be merely entertained by the arts, or can they be instrumental in educating and informing us of uncomfortable truths as well?
Creativity can come in the most unexpected and surprising forms. I mention this because I want to offer an example for our subscribers, clients and contributors to consider. Below is a very short film clip made by a very creative filmmaker. This came as a shock and surprise to me because I had no idea just how creative this person is.
His creativity is not for entertainment, but to inform. The clip below was created without any input or creative idea or instruction from anyone else. It wasn’t expected or invited but was created on the impulse and initiative of its creator. His motivation for producing the clip is to make a contribution to inform and educate on a topic that, for some, is taboo. There are those who see films about the paranormal as amusing or entertaining. But for those who have been adversely affected in their health and well-being by something that could be described as paranormal would agree with me that it is far from entertaining.
My research demonstrates that such events are not paranormal at all. In fact, they are surprisingly common and, in that sense, quite normal. My colleagues and I deal with such events every single day in order to help people who need relief and protection from the paranormal and we need creative ways to inform an otherwise uninformed audience.
There are those who would be critical of the short film clip below because it addresses the paranormal in ways that some may not agree with. I beg to differ and I offer this film clip as an example of spontaneous creativity that can inform and educate. What say you?
It has been quiet of late – on the surface that is. Training for student RSR practitioners has been suspended for a variety of reasons and this has given each of us time to reflect on where we are going and why we need to get there.
The Covid-19 pandemic has influenced us in more ways than we could have anticipated and we sought to exploit the situation with an expansion into on-line training. It hasn’t worked as well as we would have liked (I speak for myself, Andrew and Chen). Training needs to be done in groups, face-to-face, like those in Virgina, Mexico and Corsham, with online practice sessions following the group workshops.
The plan now is to reconvene the training after the lockdown and travel restrictions have been lifted with practical workshops in London, New York and Canada. where there is growing demand.
Meanwhile, student fellowship Patrons are encouraged to focus attention on reading from the reading list on the bookshop page here. All students will need their copy of The Science of Spirit Possession which gives the scientific framework for our work, and Dr Charles Tramont’s What’s Missing in Medicine. These books are a minimum requirement for pre-training preparation, together with other works on the list that are optional. Dedicated practitioners will have every book on the list in their personal library for a full knowledge of the subject and its history.
Notices regarding training workshops will be posted in due course, but not until the pandemic panic has subsided.
Meanwhile, our main objective remains unchanged, and that is to have a serious documentary made about our work. That is the reason why our Patreon platform was initiated – to help finance the making of the documentary and I am personally expressing my gratitude to all of you who have made your pledge to support the project. Thank you.
Here is a link to the series made for Netflix by the documentary film maker Ricki Stern. Her documentary on Surviving Death features many known colleagues including Dr Peter Fenwick, Prof Chris Roe and the researchers we met at the University of Virginia in 2019. The one topic missing from the series is that of spirit possession and its relationship with mental health. This is where we come in, and we could not even enter into discussions without the support of our Patrons. So I say again to all registered Patrons, a very big THANK YOU.
Unfortunately, along with everyone else, we’ve had to cancel all travel plans, conferences, lectures and training workshops for this year due to the Corona virus. But fortunately, we already have a recurring program of online practice sessions for trainees and qualified practitioners to meet and discuss the business of providing Remote Spirit Release services for our clients.
We intend to start from our base in the UK only for the time being. It isn’t the geographical location that is tricky to manage, but the time difference from our local time zone here in the UK. Our training sessions are held at 19:00-20:30 (GMT+1) on every Tuesday. Naturally this doesn’t prevent trainees from joining us from anywhere in the world, provided thay have the free time slot locally without interruptions.
We are offering the online training package at an extremely low introductiory price of just $50 per month for for 16 online training sessions. Applicants do need to register as a Patron first for only $9 per month to demonstrate a commitment. See that orange ‘Become a Patron’ button to the right? That is still a very low cost when all subsequent online practice sessions are completely free of any additional charges after the 16 session course is completed. The price will probably increase after the first intake of trainees, so don’t take too long to register. Places will be limited in order to provide one-to-one tuition.
The course is for healthcare professionals, doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists , nurses, therapists and experienced psychic or spiritual mediums. Professional qualifications need to be presented. This course is not for the curious or for anyone who has no experience of health care or mediumship.

When nurses see spirits or ‘ghosts’ on the wards are they hallucinating or are they seeing earthbound spirits of the deceased? This research aims to answer this question with scientific investigation.
This research is not funded by the mainstream, we are therefore supported by small monthly contributions from our supporters through the Patreon program. Here is an invitation to either support or participate in our research. Become a Research Collaborator and participate if you are connected with a hospital or university and get involved, or simply pledge your support. All supporters and collaborators are anonymous and no one will be named as a supporter or collaborator unless they wish to take credit for their contribution.
The year 2019 saw our training programme expand to Mexico and the United States. We have been acknowledged by no less than five senior psychiatrists in the UK, members of the Royal College of Psychiatry and the Royal Society of Medicine and we are being asked, ‘When is our training coming to London?’
We therefore need to raise the bar on efficiency and standards with the aim of running a training event on the premises of the Royal Society of Medicine. Below you will find revised guidelines for the management of our online practice sessions and training workshops.
So, let us maintain the momentum and make 2020 a year to celebrate.
Using our unique Protocol, 80% of cases of suspected spirit possession are resolved in one session lasting an average of just eight minutes. Here is the evidence.
This research was made possible by the contributions of dedicated research collaboration and private pledges of just $10 per month. This is to say a big ‘Thank you‘ to our Patrons for your support during 2019. Without your support this research would not have been possible. For further analysis and case studies join our Patrons and share in our success as we break new ground in the treatment of suspected spirit possession.
