To assist you in choosing the right course at The Barbanell Centre, please read the course content details in the first instance, making sure you understand the subject, content and full nature of the course.
Next, check the ‘Ability’ levels that the course is assigned and consider your experience, knowledge and suitability.
Please note that the centre booking staff are unable to recommend a suitable course and cannot assess each student individually prior to booking. It is advised that you contact the relevant course tutor should you have any specific questions.
Most courses are categorised by Course Type and Ability. For example: Mediumship & Mixed Levels Please see the brief summary of ‘Ability’ descriptions below:
Mixed Levels: Only courses designed for mixed levels of experience and understanding will assess students. The Course Organiser/Tutors using a questionnaire in the first session of the course will carry this out. All students will then be assigned to groups of students that are at the same or similar level, to ensure everyone gets the best learning opportunity.
Beginners: These courses are aimed at those who have an interest in exploring and developing the discipline of the course content. For Mediumship: Suitable students may have some awareness of Spirit and may even have felt able to give some level of Spirit or Psychic evidence, but this is not essential.
Intermediate: Students who enrol on an intermediate course must already have some experience in the discipline of the course content. For Evidential Mediumship: Students must have already demonstrated reasonable evidential communication from the Spirit World in private sitting and/or public demonstration. For Trance Mediumship: Students must understand the nature of altered states of consciousness and Spirit Control. Students must also be able to attain a reasonable level of controlled altered states of consciousness.
Advanced: Students who enrol on an advanced course must have sound experience and understanding in the discipline of the course content. For Evidential Mediumship: Students must have already demonstrated consistent and accurate evidential communication from the Spirit World in private sitting and/or public demonstration. For Trance Mediumship: Students must fully understand the nature of altered states of consciousness and Spirit Control. Students must be able to easily attain altered states of consciousness with full and disciplined control.
For all Courses: If you are still unsure of your suitability after reading this page, contact the Course Organiser/Tutor by email to explain your experience and understanding, which course you wish to attend and why. Please allow them some time to respond, it may not be immediate!
