Eugenia Bushman is a gifted medium and psychic with over 30 years experience. She started as a medium some months after her grandfather passed away. A profound experience occurred while talking with her father. Eugenia became increasingly aware of the presence of a spirit which “felt” familiar. She talked to the spirit; it was the spirit of her grandfather. Granddad reassured her with at touch and she passed on the message that he wished to impart to the family. This is when Eugenia and her family became deeply aware of her mediumistic abilities.

Following in her grandmother’s footsteps, she began learning the healing and metaphysical arts at the age of nine. Trained by professionals, Eugenia has a variety of esoteric knowledge. Her unique and sensitive blending of her talents in mediumship, numerology, and tarot will provide you with a rare, rewarding and informative experience.

Eugenia is available for sessions Monday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

Private Reading With Dawn  (Phone, Skype, Zoom and WhatsApp readings available)

A private one on one reading with Dawn is for those who wish to reconnect with their loved ones in a comfortable private setting. This type of reading is a detail-oriented towards you and always stays confidential. Dawn can always tailor a reading to fit your needs. (With or without Spirit Art)

Spirit art is when Dawn connects (mediumistic) to a loved one in spirit asking for guidance while sketching. She sets the intention to draw the loved one in spirit, with that being said She has had many different outcomes… For example, some drawings have been a mix of loved ones… or a person in the family connected to them that are living… also different ages the list goes on… It’s always changing and evolving

Approximately 45 Mins – $80 / 45 Mins with Spirit Art – $100  • The drawing may only be the essence of a loved one • No guarantee who is drawn (Please see Dawn’s website for more information)

Approximately 60 Mins – $120 / 60 Mins with Spirit Art – $140

Auragraph Reading

Auragraphs were originally known as Symbolic Art developed by Harold Sharpe in the 1930’s.  Auragraphs are information that’s intuitively received from the recipient and drawn using design and color.

For each custom drawing Dawn uses an ink pen and Prismacolor pencils, the reading for the sitter is my interpretation using my senses (the artwork is on an acid-free 8.5 x 11 paper suitable for framing).

The artwork comes with a personalized half-hour reading about the elements of your auragraph that can be provided in person or mailed with a typed reading along with the artwork. (Most are done remotely – for people living a distance away or outside the United States).  For best results please provide a photo and date of birth ahead of the reading.

Dale first noticed she was “different” as a child when she was able to see spirits.  She has spent her life with visitations and communications, simply accepting this as normal.

Currently, she is honored to be a member, a platform/reading medium, and a spiritual healer at The Journey Within, alongside her number one mentor, Rev. Janet Nohavec.

Dale is a member of the Spiritualists’ National Union International where she is currently completing the Platform Accreditation Scheme.  She is also privileged to partcipate in continued studies with the Reverends Simon James and Brian Robertson of The Inner Quest Foundation, Reverend Joseph Shiel III of Lily Dale, NY, as well as with Officiant Eammon Downey and Tony Stockwell SNU … all of whose teachings she resonates with.

Dale holds a BA with a minor in Psychology and an MA+40.  She has facilitated and presented workshops in the practice of effective instruction for over 20 years.  She has completed and presented workshops in Brain Development Research, and in the use of Right Brain Hemispheric Dominance.

Dale is a firm believer that “dark entities” and “attachments” are the psyosomatic fears and stresses that people experience on this earth…illness of mind, emotion and body.  She strives to allay any fear in spirituality.

Dale offers her talents as a Spiritual Medium and Intuitive Energy Reader, with the true belief in Spiritualism aligned with philosophy, science and religion…along with the development of high morals and ethics within this work.

Her goal is to provide evidence of the continuation of the individual soul beyond physical death…and in the act of spiritual mediumship…to be the “channel of God’s peace”.

Dale’s sessions are a half hour long and are $60.  At your choice, they can be all mediumship, all psychic, or a combination of the two.

Dale is available for sessions the first Monday evenings of the month.

At this time Dale only does sessions in person.

Stella Upton, CSNU has been aware of the spirit world since being a small child. When very young she thought her mother had many visitors to the house, and only later realized these ‘visitors’ were actually spirits. She was then certain of life after death. At age 14 Stella began to develop her mediumship. She spent several years in church development groups and attended the Arthur Findlay College for eight years, becoming a tutor there in 1998. Since taking her first church service in 1990, she regularly does mediumship demonstrations, and private sittings. A more recent development is the painting of auragraphs. Along with teaching at the Arthur Findlay College, Stella has also worked with students throughout the UK and abroad, teaching relaxation, meditation, awareness, color, spirit art, paranormal phenomena and evidential mediumship.

Stella’s website

Stella will be visiting us in late March/early April. She has half hour mediumship, spiritual assessment or auragraph sessions for $125.

An auragraph is a pictoral representation of your life, past present and potential future. It is hand drawn by Stella on A4 watercolour art paper and the symbology contained within it is then ‘read’ by her. The information can be similar to a spiritual consultation in that it is about you and can give you guidance on your potential.

Minister Steven Upton is a minister and Vice-President of Britain’s Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU), from which he has received numerous diplomas, awards, and special certificates. He has been involved with the Spiritualist movement since 1971. Steven started developing his healing mediumship in 1977 and over the following 17 years practiced this on a regular basis in a number of SNU Churches. He attended the SNU’s world famous Arthur Findlay College and later became a teacher and tutor there. Steven is well regarded a one of the world’s leading trance teachers.

Joseph Shiel has known the presence of Spirit in his life since he was an infant. After years of struggle with misunderstanding the incredible value of his gifts, he emerged to embrace his talents as a Medium, Healer and Spiritual Counselor.  

He has worked with world renowned teachers in Catholicism, Spiritualism, Buddhism and other spiritual modalities to enhance and utilize his natural abilities.  He continues to develop and use his gifts to a high level of integrity to serve others and honor God’s Grace.  Joseph commits himself fully to the communication with Spirit by being factual and evidential. He works to enhance and educate everyone to have an understanding of the importance of  this life and the continuity of life hereafter.

Joseph is an expressive artist who with guidance from Spirit has been able  to draw likenesses of loved ones who have passed on to the Spirit plane. These drawings are recognizable and usually quite accurate. After their session, clients have graciously provided Joseph with photographs of their loved ones to confirm and show his accuracy.

After leaving the Catholic seminary before ordination some years ago, Joseph searched tirelessly to understand his gifts and find a place to further develop his talents in order to seve for the good of God and all. He has been blessed to have worked with hundreds of people to ease their burdens and pain. Joseph has devoted his life to service of Spirit and all those who seek God’s Love.

Joseph has earned his place as a Registered Medium in Lily Dale, New York and he is the former President of the Church of the Living Spirit, the largest Spiritualist church in the US.  He travels to serve one week a month at the Journey Within Church in Pompton Lakes, NJ, where he teaches classes and sees clients.
