My name is David Schiesser. I am a medium and teacher of different aspects of Mediumship. I was born and have lived most of my life in Switzerland. When I was younger, I lived an ‘ordinary’ life which meant that neither mediumship nor Spiritualism were part of my everyday life. I never thought that once I would become a ‘medium’ and nor did I ever want to work in the field of Mediumship. How unpredictable and full of wonders life can be - leading and steering us towards our ‘destiny’.
As I grew older, I increasingly found it a challenge to fit in and find my place in this world. The need to truly belong and to be able eventually to let go of my endless seeking and searching for who and what I was, lead me in the direction of the Arthur Findlay College, Stansted, England. There a wondrous journey of self-discovery, the learning about various aspecs of Mediumship, the practice of meditation as well as profound healing took place over many inspiring years.
I am a great believer in healing and my life’s experiences are testimony to bringing me to where I am now and who I have become. The profound and gentle voice of my soul that sought its true expression, guided and navigated my way through the beauties and difficulties of life – challenges that all of us encounter – lead eventually to me finding my own truth and peace. Consequently healing is a vital part of my work as a medium and is reflected within all aspects of my work, as well as my philosophical outlook on life.
Moving to the UK, meant leaving everything I had known and loved behind and for me it was a bold and courageous move. To really start a new life you have to live in the here and now because if not, you will always be torn apart between your old and new life. With time, despite the effort you put in, old friendships may dissolve but new people enter your life and life moves on and creates new stories.
My story since living in the UK is packed with education. Learning a new language, investigating how to navigate a totally new culture, becoming brave enough to embrace new opportunities and a new life, and last but not least gaining a solid foundation of spiritual and mediumistic knowledge through tireless studies, education and assessments through the organisation of the Spiritualist' National Union (SNU).
I hold not only the Diploma in Demonstrating Mediumship but also multiple Certificates in Speaking, Healing and Teaching various subjects in the field of mediumship and I am currently a trainee tutor at the prestigious Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, England. I teach not only in the UK but also in the USA, Switzerland, and Holland. I also teach for the highly esteemed American Spiritual Church, The Journey Within, both online and in person.
Teaching for me is:
“To embark together on a wondrous journey, exploring and investigating not only the world beyond but the power within. To reach the ultimate beauty which resides within all of us and for it to be manifested within our physical existence.”
