"Voices of Spirit" - ISD Message Circle

A time for you to relax, center and see what spirit has to say to you!

A magical evening featuring the

Institute's founding Minister, Rev. Jim DeBiasio

one of the most sought after psychic mediums from the East Coast,

+ Fran Wright, medium from ISD W.D.C.,

+ certified ISD Oneonta mediums

delivering psychic messages from departed loved ones for audience members.

"Where are you Dorothy?"  We are told that there is a "Beyond", another realm that our Spirit Loved Ones have gone to.  But if they are just "across the veil" then why can't they just reach between dimensions and give me a big old sign that they are OK?  Can't we just meet in a virtual coffee shop and have a chat like old times? 

The Institute for Spiritual Development will have several authentic Psychic Mediums (scroll down to  see who will be there), ready to connect with Spirit in the virtual coffee shop, and bring you messages that your Spirit Loved Ones and Guides would like for you to hear at this time that will help you on your life path.  Each has their own unique style of receiving messages and will share stories, tips and techniques for you to receive your own signs, and deepen the lines of communication with your own departed loved ones.

Spirit chooses who they want to call on.

In this Message Gallery Demonstration, its possible that

not everyone will receive a message.

Refreshments will be served.

“The sense of realism was amazing.  To know the spirits are with us is refreshing.”  T.J. Milford, NY

Tickets:  $30/person or $25 for ISD Members. Includes Refreshments.
