'IBIZA ADVANCED PHYSICAL MEDIUMSHIP DAYS 2017' - IMPRESSIONS / This time with participants from USA, UK, Ireland, Switzerland and Germany

Like traditionally every year 2017 held 10 days ready for a group of people to share time and mediumistic faculty. Beginning with the legendary Scole Group visiting the Hacienda de Bougainvillas in the late 90ies and then Physical Medium Stewart Alexander (now retired), entrepeneur and original Scole group temporary member and investigator Dr.Hans Schaer, who owns the premises carried on to invite yearly available Physical Mediums to let them share and perform together until today.
Together with the mediums were always those invited who were close to them naturally, experimenters, investigators, friends. Like in the past Robin and Sandra Foy or as absolute regulars until today, Basle PSI Association host, Lucius Werthmueller and his partner Sabin Suetterlin.
This years list of guests gathering around the mysteries of Physical Mediumship included U.K. Medium Warren Caylor and Ire Bill and Colleen Meadows (plus brother Chris), US based Medium Mychael Shane and his wife Pamela, highly gifted Switzerland Medium Bea Rubli, sensitive, medium and author Brigitte Balzerini, investigator Prof. Eckhart Kruse and his wife and therapist Heike, Basle PSI Association activist and organizer Therese Hartmann, Philantropist, Author and Investigator, President of the Basle PSI Association Lucius Werthmueller together with his partner, Sabin, who is additionally a professional translator besides her important varied involvement in the Associations work, Dr. Hans Schaer of course and Julia and me.
Financed the Ibiza days were like always by Dr. Schaers 'Riggenthal-Foundation' for the 'Investigation of Rare Forms of Mediumship'. 

All in all following seánces were being held, resp. given.
At the second day the participants already present opened the Mediumship days with a formless advanced table sitting, present mediums were Muegge, Meadows and Bea Rubli. 
In Switzerland Bea is widely known for her highly inspired mediumistic sessions. Her years long involvement with Physical Mediums eventually made her a developing Physical Medium at the moment herself. 
In that opening session, motivated by Julia and me, mainly our Felix Circle spirit team, but also Meadows', acknowledged their actual presence with their typical anomalies and phenomena. These were mainly well known transportations of objects located around the sitters space, rhythmical drumming of a drum standing lonely in one of the rooms corner, a guitar playing in another, tiny little pinpointed lights appeared from under the ceiling sailing down to the sitters, raps, touches, table movements and levitations and so forth. 
And inmidst these very FEG-typical activities suddenly Bills control 'Mary' started to speak and acknowledged Bills team presence also...!

Bill Meadows then held an own séance, then Warren came and held a séance, then we held a cabinet séance with overwhelming ectoplasmic presence and meaningful formation, then Warren held a second and a third one (table séances, after his cabinet séance), then Mychael came and did an apportation and a red light séance, then Bill gave another, resp. a last one, if I remember it rightly. 
These séances were all beautiful in themselves but there aren't any protocols existing, we could report from in detail. 
That is why we will give you with the upcoming photos some impressions from my personal memory over the days and telling the one or the other anecdote from the days.

The first photo (first photo above) shows the inner area of the hacienda, the pool and some of the doors that lead to beautiful rooms for different numbers of guests, all with own bathroom. The weather was without exception beautiful over the ten days we were there. To the right of that perspective invisible on the picture lays the so called pool room, in which in the last five years all séances were happening.

The Hacienda, that offers room for at least 16 guests lays deep within a green valley of pine trees and orange plantages. Its name is due to the rich growth of the plant or flower 'Bougainvillas' on the Finca that appears in different powerful red, blue and white color everywhere and this is the first photo taken showing this beauty.

The Author, Film-Maker, Pedagogue and Physical Medium Kai Muegge, tired after the earliest mornings flight.
Traditionally Kai and Julia do sleep in the most remote section of the Finca and have there the comfortable hut to the right! Photo shows the nightly illuminated finca. The main house lays to the left.

A nightly visitor.

And our hut in the morning...

The day US trance-physical medium Mychael Shane and his wife Pamela flew in, those already present made a welcome photo for them who would be with us for the first time.

The evening before was our Deep Trance Séance and the 150 birthday of Albert Freiherr of Schrenck-Notzing, this extraordinary pioneer of the scientific exploration of Materialization mediumship ('Phenomena of Materialization' 1913) in Germany, friend of Richet - and a leading part in the FEG spirit team of helper personalities in the spiritual realms. In the course of the evening his torso appeared on first sight two-dimensionally within layers of ectoplasmic substance on the chest of Kai and all present were invited to step forward and observe close-hand the strange lively features these images often have appearing within ectoplasmic mass...!
One of the first-time close observers were Prof. Eckhart Kruse and his wife Heike and both were describing the same strange ongoings, Author C. Dresbach already had described in a previous article: 'The image looked extremely lively, even though it had obviously characteristics of vintage photography, it suddenly was getting a life of its own!", Prof. Kruse remarked after the sitting. Moreover the presented images resemble strongly well known photographies of the depicted personalities and the spirit controls comment that they purposefully depict the personality in the ectoplasm in a way the audience is used to identify them, like for example by showing them like in well known photos - specifically concerning historical personalities. They would be hard to identify if we would have to identify them in never before seen poses or persepctives. Their strange lively appearance is probably due to the fact, that they are depicted on a lively ectoplasmic background!?

Besides a lot of mysterious spirit light apparitions, for example revealing in the dark a long armlike appearance with a filigrane hand coming from the ceiling and prolonging into the mediums lap, from the lights also huge objects emerged and fell onto or appeared suddenly on the floor. The many green tiny stones depicted on the image above came from the mediums eye-sockets and like always  philosophical contents were shared with the sitters.

Very early morning sky...

Photo-Art, my little hobby, with the plants of the vicinity (all images above)
Bill Meadows demonstration happened after a considerable pause in his carreer. But very quickly the trance personality 'Marie' overtook the routine and overwhelmed like always the audience with her unique child-like originality. In front of that background a face appeared above the plaque, instruments were being played, hands and touches appeared and happened and several objects were manipulated and personalities like Jonathan and Father James fought their fights (of words), representing the difficult experiences of the Medium in a catholic Orphanage as a child.                                                                        
Befriended Medium Warren Caylor refreshing in the pool
Shortly later Warren arrived and started with his séances more or less immediately. Ectoplasm was shown starting to emit a faint glow, personalities spoke from different locations, ectoplasm exited mediums body, objects were taken and flew through the room or appeared from nowhere. Like with Mychael, also with Warren inmidst of everydays actions suddenly objects appear, in the salad, in soft drink cans (yeah, of course red bull), rings, stones, sacred materialized objects...                                                       
More photo art with the finca premises, a silent retreat here to read a book or listen to music or simply to breath nature.
Then Mychael arrived late but like always fully present and with his very sympathetic wife Pamela definitely an enrichment. First evening he sat besides me and ate with huge appetite, when Prof. Kruse made a joke about apportation and held his both hands into the direction of Mychaels mouth and just wanted to retreat them again, when Mychael, still chewing on his meal, signalled him non-verbally: 'No, keep your hands there!', and so did Eckhart.
Pam said: 'He is apporting!' And out of his mouth suddenly a not too small artifact (photo) appeared. That was a 'Wow'-situation for all observers.
Spontaneously apported from mouth, inmidst of having and chewing on his dinner, through the mediumistic faculty of Mychael Shane.
In another apportation séance Mychael spouted like regularly hundreds of gemstones or semigemstones and different rings and gave them to the sitters with a message from the Ascended Masters. But Mychaels gifts go beyond his apportation abilities clearly demonstrated when he is doing billet reading. Quite impressing!

Apported gemstones by Mychael Shane in his first Ibiza séance

Investigator Dr. Hans Schaer validates the apported objects

Even though all séances were basically succesful actual synergies couldn't be worked out. But maybe that is too much wanted when you come together only once a year. Nevertheless the Ibiza days were again a unique event that will be happening in the upcoming years as well as far as we can say.
We say thank you to all those who organized, financed and did else to make the week a success! 
And to the reader: Thank you for your interest.

FEBRUARY 2017 MEMORY PROTOCOL - an independent report by Investigator C.Dresbach

(The least have understood, that what Author C.Dresbach describes are the closest and most thorough looks onto modern séance room-, resp. ectoplasmic phenomena, ever recorded. 
They can in their thorough- and brightness easily be compared with rare historical quality descriptions of séance-room phenomena in a whole.
This is in in every case revived modern expression of séance-room tradition in Europe and so is Dresbach chronicling it. 
In so far, Dresbachs observations are unparalleled and due to his existing capacity of intellectually processing and describing them to the outstander, intriguing.
From the thorough German text we have shortened very small parts for the translation, because they have been described thoroughly before and are marked with (.)!)

Once more we were invited to join a deep trance séance with Kai M.. Present was a promising heterogeneous group built from new sitters and as well of experienced ones. The following is a memory protocol!

MAINLY FOR THE NEWBIES...there was a thorough introduction
Mainly for the newbies there was a thorough introduction being given by the medium itself to make what was to follow understandable in a historical and cultural context.
After we started to enter the séance room, i took my place directly besides the seat of the medium, for i was the independent controller to hold the medium during darkness at arms and legs. 
Opposite to me Julia M. was holding also the medium, so that it was secured by us two on its chair.
This is a known convenient form of control to securely rule out any bodily involvement of the medium with the phenomena mainly happening within the sitters circle.
There is an increased stage of that control, the 'supercontrol', when one of the controllers reaches over to the other to secure the opposite controller. Doing so the medium is blocked with the body and the controllers are secure as well!
The supercontrol was several times asked for by the communicator meanwhile phenomena were occurring at different places in the circle.
Again and again the independency of the phenomena from the medium were demonstrated that evening that way!
I executed last time four years ago at my first sittings the medium control and was looking forward to again take this important seat in the circle. 

Already during the specific breathing routine of the medium to entrance itself and during the first words of the trance control HANS, the first illuminating apparitions in form of flashes and foglike, shiny greenish areas, were visible for us.
Shortly after the introduction by the spirit (.) the different 'experiments' already began that night.

It like always began with the spirit interferences with the inmidst of the sitters circle held ready instruments. The rattles and shakes were put onto a turned around bucket and additionally a shamans drum plus stick besides. The rattles right away were shaken and later thrown into the room. The shamans drum in the following of that start was beaten in the rhythm of the music and our singing.

Meanwhile the instruments were audibly handled, I held the medium in the previously described manner. It sat indeed totally quiet on its chair and every movement of him I immediately had sensed. And regardless the spectacle of the instruments happened in front of all of us!

After this first episode nearly all sitters were starting to receive touches by spirit hands, whereby these touches were described as elusive and chilly, like from a real hand basically.

Even the mediums mother who sat solely behind me in second row always having her hands on my shoulders, was after a few attempts touched at her back (!) and head (Elke is ill and was located there wanting to be able to leave the seance room in the case of feeling too weak without much disturbance or without leaving an empty chair behind, but she stayed til the end).

That was uncommon in so far that she sat in second row and the spirit had remarked that the phenomena were only to happen within the circle dependent on the alleged energy field covering the free space of the circle.
I wasn't receiving any touches, because the controllers were wanted to focus solely onto the mediums control (and security) and not to become distracted!  

Secondly shiny balls on a plate, then put onto the bucket opposite in the circle, were wanted to be moved. Nearly immediately they started to roll around there and were thrown from it in the end!
A female sitter claimed she was parallely permanently being touched at her leg!

When no more balls were rolling we all were wanted to step in front of the cabinet. Therefore the red light was lit to orient and position in front of the medium. Immediately small crystals were starting to fall from all heads orifices. Alone three relatively big ones were coming from under the right lower eyelid. According to this first a big bulge under the eye became visible and shortly after the stones appeared from the eyes! But not enough with this, the medium stood up from his chair, visible and in red light, moved to a sitter and materialised a big, white so called Activation Stone from his bare hands into the hand of this lady. This was accompanied with a glaring light coming with the object from the mediums hands...!

Some of the evenings materialized stones...
Immediately afterwards the 'flying handkerchief'-experiment was focused onto! Like in previous instances sitters were asked to hold the shiny (illuminated pieces of tape all over it!) hanky into the sitters circle, where it then was grasped for by the spirits and transported through the room. 
After a starting the experiment was successful and the hanky was seen taken from the one sitters hands all over to another sitter. It looked as if freely floating over to the other side in the dark...! 

Surprisingly after the transport a materialization of a hand was shown to the sitters.
The medium returned from the cabinet sitting openly in it. Suddenly a blueish flash of light was visible and illuminated the medium sitting in its chair. This strange blueish light should stay the only light illuminating the following. Again and again it flashed and with every flash something more of an ectoplasmic apparition became visible. It started with a white, clothlike heap of 'ectoplasm' on the head of the medium. This heap unfolded now with every new flash of light a little bit more showing first single fingers, then a whole hand and finally a whole arm with the complete appendages and extremeties of a hand was visible. 
(.)Such an extraordinary observation we could make already a year earlier. The blueish flashes came in faster and faster sequence, in a way you could observe the genesis of the apparition in its different stages very well! In the end the ectoplasmic build reached from the head of the medium down to his lap.

In the first sequences of the blueish flashes of light fingers started to appear...

The hand then 'grew' down more and more...
In the end the ectoplasmic apparition reached down into the lap area...
The next experiment was already announced beforehand and was now to be executed: the freely flying trumpet!
Therefore the medium held the trumpet first into the room and wagged with it, as if it wanted to lure the spirits from the darkness to come and grasp for it. We were just starting to sing. But they didn't and the spirit announced the trumpet to be thrown simply into the circle. We saw the illuminated trumpet thrown actually through the whole room onto the floor opposite from the medium and the farthest from him. 
The medium overgave itself into the holding control. 
In the following we were several times counting down, waiting, but the trumpet didn't move.
Then the trumpet was taken from the floor and started 'to fly' with great speed through the room. 
Thereby it drew circles above our heads, stopped and floated in front of some sitters and tapped on forehead and shoulders of others. The phenomenon kept on going that way for a few minutes with steady power output. Meanwhile not a sound or a rustle was being heard when the music was turned quiet, what absolutely must have been the case if any human agency would have transported the trumpet through the room that way. 
I myself controlled the medium when that all occurred, first with the normal holding control, later with the super-control as well, holding Julia at the same time!
The medium sat quietly, motionlessly on his chair, he didn't move at all!

 After this final experiment the 'red light' section of the evening started, in which commonly ectoplasm in different forms and expressions is being exhibited.
 Already days before the séance I had expressed the wish (not to the medium) to be myself privileged to see faces generate in the mass with own eyes. It is a well known spiritistic phenomenon depicted on many historical photographs of gone séances of the past.
Oftentimes deceased relatives it is told are showing themselves then to the present guests of the evening. Such appearances specifically in the survivalistical english form of spiritualism are seen as proof of survival. That evening my wishes should become fulfilled!

Before it started first the ectoplasm had to be brought forward. A process, 
striking in itself and intriguing to witness. For the following, every time the red light was switched on, so that we could observe the whole procedure:Under loud moaning and sounding the medium drew a gaze or veil-like cloth out of his mouth. Mutltiple armlengthes long the mass grew higher and higher towards a huge heap in front of the mediums feet.
The mass was laying, fully seperated from the medium in the end on the floor, but it wasn't anymore looking clothlike, but more like foggy! The mass was looking totally weightless and started to move and pulsate. When the lights were switched off inbetween again blueish flashlike illuminations appeared around the medium. Several times the blueish flash appeared above the mass, so that it became visible in the dark for a break of a second.
When after a few seconds it stayed dark after the blueish flashes the red light was switched on again.
In the mass on the floor now something was moving. Inside of the foglike Material something moved and it looked as if a small head was building up, that slightly swayed from left to right...!

Now Hans announced three personalities inside the ectoplasm. And after another short darkness the mass now was like erecting from the floor to the mediums chest, where it broadly layed and reached from the hips up to the shoulders.

Moreover the look again had changed at this stage. Now it looked like drawn spiderwebs. At some locations it was thick and bulging, dense, meanwhile at other locations it was half transparent, gauze-like, thready, fibrous and sticky. On the chest in the meantime three large grey dark spots had become visible.  

From my position i could not see any of the three faces, even though I sat directly besides the ectoplasm. It more looked like as if a greyish matter deliquesced into a kind of Rorschach like pattern inside the ectoplasm. Hans, the spirit-speaker, now asked everybody around to one by one step forward and confront with the faces. Thereby he talked about the faces already to melt away...!

artistical recreation of the three faces 
I was the last in line and to be enabled to catch a glimpse onto these mysterious faces. But because from my position i couldn't at all discern a face and because of the faces' dissolve also was announced already by Hans I was starting to make my peace not seeing nothing of any faces.

When i finally stepped in front of the mediums chest and started to fixate the right dark spot within the ectoplasm from close proximity, I became aware of the face of an infant. It first looked like an old photography in the style of the twenties in 19 hundreds. The face stared directly at me and suddenly it seemed as if it was moving and starting to strangely become fulfilled with life. The image was so real detailed, that i could even see single hairs from its haircut fall into its face and the pattern of her iris in the eyes of that child. It was carefully smiling around its lips and was directly going into a mutual intercommunication of glimpses with me.

This amazing face was like perfectly painted or even modernly printed onto underlying cloth and framed by thicker gauze or worked into the gauzelike material. It looked at times like an oval piece of cloth and its material was so fine also in appearance to the rest of the ectoplasmic material, that even looked rightout rough in parts. The outer border of the 6 cm image was bulging. 

Altogether i could look at it between 5 and 10 seconds.

Just when I wanted to turn to the upper face I was called back to my seat and the lights went off. I could not even look once at the upper male face apparition, but I learned from later descriptions, that was unlikely my encounter a bearded man, visible to its shoulders, wearing glasses. About the female apparition I cannot say anything.

After this episode the séance was as good as closed. The ectoplasm was already after seconds and after turning the lights off and on simply totally disappeared. 

Hans talked with weaker and weaker voice the medium would suffer heavy migrane and that the séance now soon had to be finished.
After a warm goodbye the medium exited its trance and the sitting was ended. 

All left the cellar to gather upstairs with the others to discuss the together experienced...

SPECTACULAR PIECE OF SÉANCEROOM PHOTOGRAPHY MADE AVAILABLE - Franek Kluskis Full Form Materialization of a German Soldier in Uniform

Gustave Geley,  1868-1924, on whose observations and writings the most information we have about the medium Franek Kluski is based upon...
When Zophia Weaver 2016 published her small booklet about the astounding Polish Physical Medium Franek Kluski, those of us knowing the historical German and French publishings about him - and the english translations of them - were eager to read what Zophia, as a woman of the same nationality, might have in charge for us. We knew she had access to the original polish publications about Franek, and it was expected she would come up with something new from her approach. 

Weavers approx. 120 pages booklet about Franek Kluski
 Because like with for example Indridi Indridason, the international mostly english or german speaking researchers always were massively slowed down in their explorative attempts by the existing language barrier! And Polish was and is as a language as inaccessible as it was and is icelandic. 

And meanwhile E.Haraldsson in his 2015 publishing 'THE ICELANDIC PHYSICAL MEDIUM' revealed surprising new information about Indridi only icelandic speaking researchers had over decades access to, Weaver actually did not so. 
Considering that the mainly in German and French published contents about Kluski were not too exhaustive, and were mainly referring to Geleys 1927 publication 'Clairvoyance and Materialisation' and reporting about Kluski based on experiments with him in Warsaw and Paris, many had somehow expected more from the Weaver book. 
It's a thorough personal analysis, but nothing new!

Meanwhile in regards to Indridi we learned with the todays publication some important facts that were - obviously purposefully - controlled and withheld for nearly a century by those who spoke the language and had access to the historical minutebooks, in regards to Weavers todays Kluski-publication she not even took the chance to publish some photos only rarely seen from the 1926 rare polish original publication by Colonel Okolowicz, 'Wspomnienia Z Seansòw Z Medjum Frankiem Kluskim'. 
The original Polish work of Colonel Okolowicz, who was Kluskis protector and circle leader...

Kluski, who was a bank-institute employée and poet, an intellectual, was well known for a lot of amazing mediumistical phenomena - from his luminous fogs and phantom-faces, over to materialized predators like lions and falcons (photographed) or the 'picanthropus', a 'Neanderthal'-like hairy ape-like entity that smelled like a wet dog and 'licked the hands and faces of the present lady sitters', who squealed in mystified amazement, to Full Materializations in different stages. Moreover wax-moulds of hands and feet were achieved meanwhile the medium sat stationary on its seat within the circle.
Kluski was controlled through sitters sitting left and right from him and holding his hands.
Building stages of Kluski-phantoms, as published in the Polish Okolowicz book (scanned and taken from Nautilus Website...)!
In high frequence phantoms did materialize and illuminated themselves with flourescent plates or were self-illuminated and shone in the dark. 
They appeared either opposite from him outside of the circle or behind him outside of the circle. Very rarely they appeared inside of the circle. 
More building up Materializations from the Polish publication
Most of the phenomena did occur regularly and so did the phantoms and Geleys photos showed them seemingly in different building stages.
Three times the seemingly fully materialized spirit forms were managed to be photographed: A strange oriental figure with turban, dressed in white and wearing a beard (the plate was damaged and the figure is hardly visible), the Picanthropus, who appeared quite differently on the photographic plate as it was perceived and described - and a regular visitor, a german soldier in classical WW I-uniform with helmet.
Kluski handmolds as presented by Okolowicz
Other spirit visitors appeared as well, some of them also regularly like an old toothless woman. Sometimes the materializations had first a strong resemblance with the mediums face and developed more own characteristics over the sometimes up to three stages a séance evening was built of. The phenomena began mostly immediately when a low red lights lamp was switching off by itself or unknown means and mostly with luminous fogs around the medium that later seperated and started to form these more dense figures. Flickering lights, mostly in the same color like the flourescent plates or plaques, turned out to be living eyes when they approached the sitters.
The Sitters order during the sittings in Warsaw. Compare Okolowicz drawing with Geleys below...
We very much recommend Geleys book mentioned above or his 1922 edition 'Materialization experiments with Franek Kluski' to learn more about his intriguing mediumship!

The German soldiers photo however was in the following of its taking many times mentioned but rarely - or better 'never' - actually reprinted unlike many others from Geleys 1927 french and german edition, that very regularly showed up.

The photograph of the German WWI soldier is a spectacular piece of séance room photography and it is thus even more unexplainable why it was never shown in reports about the Kluski mediumship in periodicals of the time!

Like we did before in the field of séanceroom-photography we today make the photo accessible to a wider english-speaking audience and hope it achieves to satisfy the reader to look at and study it as it did satisfy us. 
Rarely published image taken in Warsaw of one of the regular spirit visitors, a German Soldier, who always appeared in full uniform and was taken here by means of a magnesium flashlight...
Most likely a second plate with a larger frame. Interesting to note is that Kluski appears to wear a full beard in the meantime, but that could be a false impression, triggered by shadow around his chin. The soldier instead seems to have taken his left arm up or something lays over his shoulder, reminding of the material the 'Picanthropus' (see below) was surprisingly photographed with...!
German Soldier Spirit Materialization as presented in Okolowicz book and scanned by Nautilus website
Additionally we publish here the other images from Okolowicz 1926 edition (full pages-scans from and scanned by the polish Nautilus website), as we do publish all the images from an original 1927 Geley antiquarian edition of 'Hellsehen und Teleplastik' ('Clairvoyance and Materialisation'/edited high-res scans).
Last image that not appeared in Geleys book and show a thick thread seemingly coming from Kluskis hand operating some kind of focus object or mechanism!
In the following we present the images from the German edition 'Hellsehen und Teleplastik' from the antiquarian library of K.M..We even repeat to show those that were depicted above because of a slightly better image quality!
The experimental rooms condition depicted by Geley. It was Kluskis own Appartement in Warsaw. At this point it is necessary to underline that Kluski was giving séances in Paris at the 'Institute Metapsychique' as well with more or less the same results...!
The phantoms in different building stages and complex enwrappings...!
The infamous 'Picanthropus', the Lady-licker (hands and faces), sensed manually and olfactorily as a hairy ape-man, on the photo made of him the above figure showed up... the two rabbit-ear like, same colored, oval forms above the Materialization are plates in the background
Another regular was the turbaned entity photographed here as well standing behind the medium with still visible peculiar features. For unknown reasons the photo plate 'was destroyed'. No further information about that considerable occurrence is being given...!
Kluski was well known for his animal and animal-like ('Picanthropus') Materializations. Meanwhile the photographed 'Picanthropus' leaves us a bit mystified, on this photo the animal Materialization is clearly visible. Another animal Materialization was a 'Lion', that allegedly had massively intimidated the present sitters during its appearance...!
Geley published the wax-molds taken with Kluski as well. They took the longest time to be completed in lowest red light in comparison with all other Kluski phenomena, that more or less instantly started to appear after the séance had started...!

We hope you enjoyed our excursion into historical European Mainlands Physical Mediumship with this outstanding example of a physical, resp. Materialization Medium of its time!
