From its inception, in 1883,
trance mediumship has played a significant role in the general mission
and ministry of the First Spiritual Temple. To bear witness to genuine
trance communication, where a Spirit teacher comes forward to inspire and
instruct, is truly a remarkable experience.
Today, genuine trance mediumship
is rather rare. Its development comes only to those who have, within their
mental and physical organisms, a certain type of vital, magnetic energy.
This energy is used by Spirit in order to induce varying degrees of

who spoke through Rev. Stephen's mediumship: Syrsha, an
ancient Egyptian; and John, a guide devoted to the Healing Ministry. Both

these three individuals has his own flair of dialogue and his own
perspectives on life and the journey of the Spirit.
