Magician to Mystic: A Mediumistic Path to a Spiritual Life
By Brian Robertson & Simon James

Magician to Mystic opens the door to a deeper, heart-centred understanding of the nature of mediumship, mysticism and its spiritual roots. A new generation of seekers is encouraged to reconnect with the classical oral tradition of esoteric mediumship grounded in ancient knowledge, encompassing aspects of alchemy and mythology together with Robertson and James’ teachings of their archetypes and triads.

By revealing the sacred principles behind transcommunication, Magician to Mystic moves us further along the path of awareness toward the revelation of our own spiritual nature.

Internationally esteemed teachers of the mystery tradition and the intuitive arts, Simon James and Brian Robertson revitalize those aspects of ancient wisdom which lie at the core of the healing art of transcommunication. Their work fosters our innate ability to tap into that wealth of inspiration open to everyone, which they call “everyday mediumship.”

“Simon James and Brian Robertson give us a treasure, a book for all seekers of Truth. They move us beyond the smoke and mirrors of waking perception to the reality of the spiritual connection that rests in the heart of all Creation. They open wide the portal to all who authentically wish to move within in search of the dwelling place of the Eternal, the hidden origin and source of our being. Their presence emanates from each page, creating a joyful and true guide to all pilgrims of the Way. I predict it shall be cherished, and consulted over and again!”

Echoes: Teachings from the Past, Wisdom for the Present
by Debra Skelton

Spiritual seekers the world over may now add to their bookshelves a highly readable contemporary anthology of selected prose and poetry by our eminent Spiritualist forebears. Here you will find inspired passages that comfort, uplift and help you to understand your own spiritual quest.

Now available! Echoes Unheard: Reflections on the Unseen by Debra Skelton

Echoes Unheard is an offering of diverse thoughts on the Unseen world from profoundly wise minds who, like so many of us today, are driven by an unquenchable desire to understand that which we cannot see. In this highly readable sequel to Echoes: Teachings of the Past, Wisdom for the Present, we hear from mediums, psychologists, researchers, scientists, artists, spiritualists, activists and environmentalists, both past and present, many of whom have sadly been forgotten. With passion, wit, humour and pathos, they share their experience of Otherness and their remarkable insights into the nature of human and divine consciousness. Echoes Unheard is abundant in relevance, wisdom, and inspiration for the contemporary spiritual seeker.


“There are times when we yearn to have at hand something to inspire and uplift us through our more difficult moments. This compilation of some of the best literary outpourings from spiritual writers from the past is something that challenges and fascinates at the same time. Thank you, Debra Skelton, for an inspired idea.”
