About The Book
Ann’s book takes us back to her earlier career in banking. Back then she seemed amongst the least likely to believe in paranormal phenomena. But as she describes frankly in this book, she was confronted by a profound personal experience – a traumatic premonition. Her struggle to make sense of that experience and her sense of guilt for not having attempted to act on the information received, leads her on a journey of investigation and exploration into the strange world of the paranormal.
Ann had the good fortune to meet an academic with a sympathetic interest in parapsychology and this gave her space to acquire skills in research and investigation methods. Part of her education involved participating in vigils in haunted locations, evaluating mental mediumship and sitting for physical phenomena. Even under these controlled conditions, she had some remarkable experiences. Some of the phenomena that Ann describes are truly incredible, such that even direct witnesses may come to doubt their own senses. For those of us who were not there, we may be faced with the dilemma of accepting at face value reports of occurrences that go well beyond our personal boggle threshold (as Mairi says in Chapter 14. ‘You wouldn’t believe it if you hadn’t seen it yourself’).
“Surely nothing can be more important than exploring the full nature of what it is to be human and to recognise the fundamental properties of consciousness”
It was during these sessions with her group that Ann recorded the first intervention of a communicator that would reveal himself to be none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. These communications took place over a six year period during which Sir Arthur directed Ann to find a building that was to become The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, in Edinburgh. As her Editor states, “Many people have claimed to be in communication with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle since his death, but few of them have documented their claims as carefully as Ann Treherne, and there are none whose communications have resulted in the establishment of a large Centre in his name (in Edinburgh).
About the author.
Ann Treherne comes from a corporate background in banking and finance, latterly being CEO of a subsidiary company of a large, international bank. Back in 2000, she left the corporate world, having encountered premonitions which she states as being ‘dramatic and traumatic’. This, was her ‘wake-up call’ which caused her to seek out answers and ultimately to give up her job to become a Psychic
Investigator. Now an International and inspirational Speaker, Tutor and Workshop Facilitator, she brings a unique talent and professionalism to the mysterious world of the metaphysical.
Ann will be hosting a book launch at 7.30pm. She will give a talk on her book and answer questions from the audience. Come along for what promises to be an interesting evening.
