 Benu as tranced through Karen Cook 

Karen  CookKaren is a deep trance channel from Albuquerque, New Mexico who channels Benu, the Archangel Gabriel. Benu brings forth amazing wisdom, knowledge and humor from the spirit side of life.  Benu is an ancient Egyptian word that means “Doorway”.

Benu will give a workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico at the Unity Santa Fe on August 8, 2015.   The workshop is titled “The Power of Intention: and will be held from 1 pm to 4 pm.  The doors open at 12:30 pm.  The first half of the workshop will be spent on the topic and the second half  is spent with Benu answering non-personal questions from the audience.  Pre-registration is recommended and can be accomplished by sending an email to tnewman@gte.net.  For additional questions, please call Tom Newman at 505 438-2098.

I have attended over 20 workshops & lectures with Benu and consider him to be the one of the ultimate sources of knowledge and information.  Benu has access to all knowledge and has been around since the beginning of time.  Benu through Karen also gives private readings Monday through Friday for most weeks of the year.

Readings with Benu can only be scheduled through email to Casey McKee at benukcook@gmail.com

Materialization Medium David Thompson

David ThompsonDavid is from England and has lived since 2005 in Sydney, Australia.  He has been a mental medium for the past 27 years and a physical medium  specializing in materialization for the past 21 years.  David is the real deal in my opinion and authentic in his mediumship.  He goes to great lengths during each séance to remove any possibility of the appearance of  fraud.  He is tied into the chair in the cabinet.  He has a gag in his mouth with a tie wrap through the knot.

David went full time as a medium in 2011 and now demonstrates at a few venues in the U.S. in addition to places in Australia, England, Switzerland, New Zealand.  If you get an opportunity to sit in one of his séances, take it.  The experience is great!

David will visit Teachings of the Angels in Santa Fe September 16 to 23, 2015 and the Sarasota Center of Light October 1 through 7, 2015.  During this time, he will do three materialization séances in each location.  Registration for all séances and workshops will open up on January 2, 2015.  Check the Sarasota Center of Light website www.SarasotaCenterofLight.com  to download the registration and consent forms. 


 London Medium Letizia Mason

Letizia is based in London, England and channels Munjiji, a team of Beings from the Spirit World.  Munjiji’s purpose is not to prove their existence but only to be of assistance to anyone who asks for help.  Questions can be about spiritual or life direction, work, family and relationships.  They can also be about loved ones who have passed on from this life.

Letizia and her husband Richard will travel to Santa Fe from March 12 to the 16, 2014 to conduct a workshop, a evening of spirit communications and to do private readings.

 Clear Conscious Channel Toni Winninger

Toni Winninger

After a 27 year career as prosecuting attorney in the State Attorney’s office in Cook County, Illinois, Toni opened up to an previously unknown ability to trance the teachings of a group of Master Teachers.

For the past 12 years, Toni has channeled many people in Spirit and with her colleague Peter Jenkins, has published 11 books.  The material in these books is some of the best spiritual philosophy that I have ever read.  Particular favorites of mine are “Spirit World Wisdom”,  “Understanding Spirit Wisdom”, “Talking to Leaders of the Past”, “Exploring Reincarnation”, “How I Died and What I Did Next” and “Life Lessons.”

Toni is also an excellent teacher and medium.  She too can be contacted for private readings and she will visit Teachings of the Angels in Santa Fe from May 13 to 23, 2015.



 Deep Trance Medium Eric Cargill


Eric CargillEric Cargill lives in York, England and travels all around England and Scotland demonstrating deep trance mediumship.  I have watched Eric’s development as a deep trance medium over the past seven years.  Through a lot of hard work and dedication by sitting in his circle every week, he has become a great deep trance medium.  Eric also teaches workshops on “Trance” and “Energy Work” which are excellent.  If you ever get a chance to sit with him, it will be most beneficial to your development.  He and his partner Gerald, will visit Teachings of the Angels in July 18  to 23, 2015.
