About Michael Fenn
Michael was brought up in a psychic family in Yorkshire in the early sixties. His grandmother had psychic abilities and read the tea leaves and tarot cards.
His dad was also developing as a healer and a medium, regularly attending psychic groups.
His first visit to a Spiritualist church was in the early seventies as a child. His dad took him to Catherine Street Spiritualist Church in Doncaster. The medium at the church, Mrs Groom, came to Michael and gave him a beautiful message that one day he too would become a Medium.
He never forgot this message and it helped motivate him over the coming years. Michael periodically sat in his dad's circle and listened in wonder at the amazing Trance teachings that came from the spirit guides and teachers.
He was involved in many different circles from 1985 to 1990 and in 1991 he began attending Catherine Street Spiritualist Church under the guidance of the then church president, Vera Boughon OSNU.
Vera was very disciplined and ran development sessions to a high standard. Michael always held Thursday nights sacred and for many years he would attend the open circle and subsequent development circle.
Michael will always be grateful to Vera for all that she taught him in those early years. The knowledge and guidance she imparted contributed into enabling him to build a strong foundation for what was to come later.
The Arthur Findley College, Stansted , Essex
Vera also introduced Michael to the Arthur Findley College in Essex, more commonly known as Stansted Hall. This hall, now a college and home of the Spiritualist National Union, was bequeathed to the Spiritualist National Union back in the 1960s, by the owner at the time, Arthur Findley.
The college runs training and development courses to a very high standard and students from all over the world have developed their psychic and mediumistic abilities there.
Michael has been to the college to take part in many courses over a period of 18 years. He has been fortunate enough to have been trained by some of the finest tutors in the country. Much of what he has learned has allowed his mediumship to flourish.
Michael has a certificate from the Spiritualist National Union in Public Speaking, meaning that he has been able to demonstrate his dedication and knowledge of spiritualism and the spiritualist philosophy. The Spiritualist National Union is the largest spiritualist organisation in the UK.
