Evening of Mediumship with Stephen Holbrook

Event Date:

Exeter Spiritualist Centre

I am mainly clairaudient – in other words, instead of seeing any kind of visual imagery I hear voices, which are sometimes in my head and sometimes as if a person is standing next to me whispering in my ear. These voices can be crystal clear or they can be rather muffled, but either way I know they are the voices of people who have passed on from this life to the next.
