"The Art of Spirit Communication"
One Hour: Up to 15 people. My approach is to read spirits present in the room and approach those they wish to speak to to converse as well as taking requests using the full name of the departed to call them. Receiving evidence or direct information that only the deceased and the living would know is crucial to ensure the right spirits are connected. Space is blessed prior to program and all measures are taken to ensure the best results possible. Special attention is made to the sacredness and sanctity of contacting the deceased. Please note this is not a seance and does not include darkness, holding hands, chanting, bell or other traditional seance tools or ritual. Instead, Chris' mediumship skills are presented in a light, positive, loving format distinctly unique to his training and his family's ancient spiritual traditions that will provide your group with a happy, fulfilling and positive spiritual experience cherished by all.
Two hour: Up to 30 or slightly over. See above for details.
Remember, not all spirits will show up just because you want them to. They do what they wish. That said, Chris has an amazing track record for reaching them. The deceased do tend to gather around him well before their chance to speak to their loved ones, especially if they have something to say or the living sincerely wish to reach out to them. Chris moves the program along to meet the needs and requests of both the living and deceased in a timely manner to cover as many as possible.
Chris has performed literally dozens of mediumship sessions over the years especially since opening his regularly scheduled programs in Galena, IL. He works out of his Victorian Readings Parlor at 303 1/2 South Main St., Galena, Illinois.
One Hour Group Spirit Mediumship Session: $300
Two Hour Group Spirit Mediumship Session: $500
Chris has been performing home blessings and cleansings, and combinations of the two, since 1996. Using multiple spiritual disciplines including, Pictish Shamanism and Mysticism from his family background (lifelong since 10 years of age), Sufism (9 years training) and Traditional Witchcraft (7 years training), Chris uses his 36 years expereience and multi-faceted training to bless, cleanse or bless and cleanse your home in a manner that aligns as closely as possible with your own personal spiritual beliefs. It's recommended to do both for full household harmony.
Home Cleansings and Blessings: $300 plus mileage
Energy work is usually requested to send energy with a various charge to help bring about a specific end result. Chris has been working with this art since he was 10 years old learning how to meditate in his grandparents back yard. His vast experience in his family's shamanic tradition, training from teachers including his 9 years with a Sufi master specializing in this art uniquely qualify Chris. His clients and those working with him will palpably feel the energy he raises, and those receiving always report positive results! He is adept at the use of ancient names and sounds to achieve the best results. His ability to astral travel as well as his near death experience both help him be especially effective.
Besides the use of drumming and chanting, Chris also utilizes a rare form of energy raising through the art of dowsing specific to his family background.
Energy Work Session: $300

Spend a whole day with a shaman! Chris's family brought a unique form of shamanism, documented in a family book that is on both the state and national historic register, from Northern Ireland's remote Antrim coast to America in 1809. They have diligently kept it alive and Chris is the head of this rare and legendary family tradition of the "Picts". This program has been performed from his home all the way to Germany on DOD bases and back to the famous Circle Sanctuary in Barneveld, Wisconsin by special invite of Selena Fox, the most famous witch of her generation. From his unique meditation technique to lessons on grounding, energy raising, directing, perception of inner and outer states, astral travel to basic communication with spirits and charging stones and sacred spaces, this program is one of the rarest and most unique experiences you will have in the art of shamanism.
Shamanism Group Intensive: $1000 (up to 10 ppl)

He is never boring, and his humor is always appropriate and appreciated!

My family, on my mother's side, moved here in 1809 from the wild northern coast of County Antrim, Ireland. They brought with them a book containing family history, talk of leaving due to religious persecution and shamanic symbols carried down for generations. My ancestor who was chief in recording the information as head of the family was worried if he didn't make the voyage the lineage could be lost. This book was of paramount importance to my journey in life.
Most psychic mediums will tell you they grew up with "gifts", and my story is the same. I was born with my skills as a psychic medium and grew up with the ability to communicate with the dead. The saving grace for me was that my mother's parents acknowledged such gifts and were both gnostic in practice and heavily into spiritualism, including the disciplines of mediation, mediumship, dowsing, astrology and yoga. My grandmother as well as her mother were also mediums, my great grandmother being the only one in our family besides myself in modern times to use our gift publicly. My grandparents encouraged me to follow our family's Pictish shamanic background seeing it living in me. I spent a lot of time with them growing up, just the three of us, learning all I could.
In the early nineties during college at WIU I met two teachers, Dolores and George. Dolores ran RA New Age Source, a bookstore in Davenport, IA and was considered by many to be a very powerful witch, coming from a South American lineage. George was one of my teachers in college, and a Welsh Witch of traditional lineage. He was well known on campus and had psychic abilities that many attested to. Dolores had incredible psychic abilities and was very maternal in her teaching encouraging my inner discipline and how that discipline manifested in the outer world. George encouraged the development of my abilities. Both challenged me considerably for 4 years and helped me focus on my purpose.
After college I was encouraged to go on pilgrimage to the UK by both. After many valuable lessons and incredible experiences at sacred sites I returned and was told that my last teacher was in Southern Illinois. I had returned knowing that the last lesson involved taming or controlling the Ego, and something about Divine Union. Both told me that this teacher would not be "advertising" just as they had not, and patience would be required.
After waiting for two years I opened up a gallery for my artwork (I'm also an artist) and it happened to be next to a shop run by Sufis, or "mystics". The term "Sufi" means "simplest/most sincere" and refers to adherents wanting union with the Divine above all else. There are "Sufis" in almost every major spiritual tradition, and whatever "religion" they practice on the outside, it's only an outer shell for the very ancient shamanic deeper tradition on the inside. Sufis are about selfless service, and organize public works projects that help communities in need.
I met their master, Sheikh Din Al Dayemi, and he agreed to help me finish my training. I became a Sufi in the Dayemi Order. The training and term of being in service is traditionally 9 years. I was the only pagan student he ever had, my goal being to learn the deeper shamanism within the path. My training included lessons on multiple levels psychologically designed to help me detach from my ego and regain, as a soul, control of my words, actions and purpose. Outer methods included daily prayer, early morning meditation and chanting, vegetarianism and refraining from alcohol and other destructive habits.
After 9 years we both knew it was time, and my training came to an end. He told me I'd always be welcome and stated I had now completed my training. At this point my family made the decision to move back north to take better jobs and bring our children closer to their grandparents. During this time I had a near death experience in 2011. I was dead for approx. 3 min. This experience and the memories from it and the meeting during have greatly enhanced not only my abilities but also my knowledge of "why" things work they way they do in the spiritual realm. It has helped me directly know and live my purpose on a daily basis so as to be of as much service as possible.
I have hosted numerous shamanic groups, taught many students and done workshops for organizations like Circle Sanctuary through Selena Fox. I have utilized my gift as a psychic medium much over the years but mostly for family and friends. Currently I utilize my gifts publicly for the first time in my family since my great grandmother in my weekly Friday and Saturday group program "Chris' Psychic Evenings" at my Victorian Readings Parlor at 303 1/2 South Main St. in Galena, IL as well as weekly bookings and walk-in readings. I also do private readings, group readings, group events, workshops, home blessings and cleansings outside my office as well. All to rave reviews. I work hard to utilize my skills to help people.
It's my absolute honor and pleasure, as well as my calling and purpose in this life, to use my gifts as a psychic medium, my 36 years of training as a shaman, the wisdom passed down from my family/teachers and my own life experience in helping others in their path and purpose to find what they need. I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
May Peace Be Upon You!
