Mysticism & Mediumship

with Karen Frances McCarthy

Six week course on Thursday evenings | Starting Thursday 12th October – ending 16th November | 7.30pm to 9.30pm (2hrs) | Online


Do you want to access the wisdom, depth, and inspiration in your trance mediumship that lies deep within the mystical states? Would you like to incorporate this mysticism into your spiritual practice and contemporary life?


In all great spiritual traditions, there have been mystics and mediums capable of reaching entranced states of union with the One to channel wisdom, healing, and hidden knowledge. These states are accessible, to varying degrees, by everyone. Whether you are conscious of it or not, everyone experiences synchronicities, whispers, subtle sensations, or hidden knowledge that can appear from nowhere.


To bring this innate ability into the entrancement of mystical mediumship, you only need the knowledge and tools to access it.


Inspired by the work of great mystics and trance mediums, this course offers you an opportunity to deepen your connection to the source, experience the union of mediumship and mysticism, learn to surrender ego-separation, and reach these deep trance states of union.


By working with these mystical traditions and bringing that awareness into your mediumship, you can enter into the state Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh described as ‘interbeing’ or union with all things. From here, you can unfold into the power of your mediumship to access higher wisdom and step into the flow of inspiration, communication, prophecy, and healing.  


You will be amazed at the power and inspiration you can access by blending the mystical with mediumship.

A Look Inside the Program

    This 6-week course introduces you to the work of renowned mystics through the ages, including Meister Eckhart, Hildegard Von Bingen, Nostradamus, Rumi, and Padre Pio. Each class includes meditation in the tradition of that mystic to expand the power of the spirit.

    You will work with deepening your ability to still the mind and experience deep states of entrancement. From the trance state, you will work with channelling that into wisdom in speaking, writing, and communication, as well as into healing and prophecy.

    The wisdom of the trance state will also help you listen to the voice of your spirit and recognise the synchronicities of the greater wisdom of infinite consciousness at work in your lives.

    These practices are a sacred way to unfold your inner wisdom, give expression to the intuition and power of the soul, and recognize your own sense of interconnection with all things.

    If you miss any of the classes, you will be able to watch a recording.

    Real People, Real Experiences

    What People Are Saying

    Like Nothing Before Experienced

    Karen’s trance mediumship course was like nothing I have ever experienced before. I think it broadened my mind in that I have different perceptions of some psychic phenomena now. That one exercise brought me in touch with feelings and emotions I now realize I had buried very deep. Some things I had refused to acknowledge before but I now realize I must deal with and resolve. Thank you for your guidance.

    —Alice Alexander, 2023

    Master Teacher

    Karen is both a master teacher and gifted medium. She is gentle and present, and extremely articulate. Her techniques are based on meditation practices informed simultaneously by Buddhist philosophy and Spiritualism. I needed a deeper path into achieving a trance state and Karen’s classes have been so helpful. I’m so grateful to her for this experience!

    —Tamar Gordon, 2023

    Extraordinary Teacher

    Karen is an extraordinary teacher. In six short weeks, my mediumship went to a whole new level. I have more confidence and am able to relax and be more present, feeling into what spirit is communicating. I also appreciate Karen’s of Zen and helping students understand the challenges of ego . I have grown not only as a medium, but personally as well.

    — Julie Parker, 2023

    Profound Mystical Experiences

    I tapped into psychic and mystical skills that I never knew I had. I learned how to prophesize, read tea leaves, and most importantly, tap into my deeper knowing and intuition. In the months following the program, I have had profound and mystical experiences during meditations.
