  4. What is considered as information / evidence of survival. 
  5. How to establish and maintain Spirit Communication.

Evidential Mediumship Workshop With Eric Sweder

About Eric Sweder

Eric grew up in a middle-class working family. His parents ran their own business and survived through all of the challenges that came with it. Spirituality was never a common topic at the dining table. It was after his father passed on to Spirit that he got interested in the ‘beyond’. Not having a clue he made his first steps into Spiritualism.

His Mediumship Journey became a structured development when he met Mavis Pittilla. She trained and mentored him for over ten years. He says that it is an honour and pleasure to contribute to her 50-year legacy and to serve the Spiritualists’ Church across the UK. He made many friends within the Mediumship community and loves to share our excitement for Spirit.

Besides his work as an independent Medium, he is an active member of the Spiritualists’ National Union. He holds the certificate (CSNU) in both speaking and demonstrating. Their vision on Spiritualism and Standard of Mediumship is globally recognized and truly one of a kind. For Dutch candidates, he is a teacher in TPS1 & 2. There is great talent in The Netherlands and he says that it is a pleasure to be a part of their development. In addition to his work for the SNU, he demonstrates and teaches Evidential Mediumship at the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre in Edinburgh (Scotland). It is a beautiful place and a pleasure to work for.

His mission is to serve Spirit and to train a new generation of Mediums. To him, that starts on the platform. He very much enjoys demonstrating my Mediumship and connecting the two worlds. His style of training focuses on sharing knowledge and the practical application of techniques. It is all about showing people how to develop their skills and enjoy the miracle that is Mediumship.
