If you are flying to Toronto, and you do not feel comfortable making you own way to the retreat, then we will arrange a pick-up service to take you from the airport to Bayview. 

As the retreat starts at 12pm, the bus will leave Toronto Pearson Airport at 9am on Tuesday 21st June. We recommend that you arrive at the airport either the day before and stay the evening at an airport hotel, or make sure you flight lands early on Tuesday morning to give yourself plenty of time to pass through customs and make the bus. 

The cost of the transportation will be split equally among the students using the service. If you require this service please just indicate this on the booking form that will be sent to you once you have secured your place on the retreat.

Join Andy Byng and John Johnson on an intensive, 4-day residential mediumship retreat at the lakeside resort Bayview Wildwood, on Sparrow Lake, Muskoka, Southern Ontario. 

Andy and John are both Course Organisers at the world renowned Arthur Findlay College, in the UK, and have worked alongside one another since 2004. While Andy and John teach from the same foundation, each add their own emphasis and individuality to their work. This retreat is a fantastic opportunity to come together, and learn from both Andy and John over the course of the 4-days against the majestic backdrop of Muskoka and Sparrow Lake.  

T H E  T R A I N I N G 

At the beginning of the retreat, your tutors will split you into two groups based on your level of experience. This will ensure that you will receive training that is relevant to your level of experience, allowing your tutors to push the boundaries of your mediumship. 

There is a limited number of places available on this retreat. There will be a maximum of 16 students in each of the two groups so that you receive individual attention over the course of the retreat. 

Your 4-days of training will be split evenly between working with Andy and John so that you can experience both of their teachings.

The sessions will focus on your mediumistic expression: working with your sensitivity to enable you to meet the need of the spirit communicator. 

Quite often mediums try to demand or control what kind of information they communicate on behalf of the Spirit World. This retreat will place emphasis on the medium surrendering to the power of the spirit, and allowing the spirit communicator to determine what information they need to communicate, and how they need to communicate it. In this sense, rather than trying to lead way, the medium allows themselves to follow The Way of the Spirit, which leads to more natural, emotional and evidentially accurate communications from the Spirit World. 

Andy and John will help you to unlock and make sense of the clairvoyant pictures and clairsentient feelings you become aware of, which will help you to deliver more accurate and practical information, but also help you to work with the essence of the communicator. 

If you are seeking to bring forward the emotion and presence of the communicator in your work; if you are wanting to go back to, or find, the naturalness of your mediumship; and if you are wanting to build a closer relationship and blending with your spirit communicator, then this course will help you to achieve this. 

Andy and John will deliver a practical and intense programme during the retreat to make sure that you get the most out of our time together. 

T H E  P R O G R A M M E

The retreat will commence at 12pm on Tuesday 21st June. After an introduction, the remainder of the day will be spent in your groups focussing on your mediumistic development. 

On the evening, at 9pm, Andy and John will host a campfire, where we can socialise and begin to get to know each other.
