The Inner Quest Centre


At the Inner Quest Centre, we create a space that nurtures and encourages students in all aspects of their development, whether they be new to intuitive practice or seasoned professionals. The Inner Quest has an international reputation for developing ethical spiritual healers as well as unfolding responsible practitioners of the intuitive and mediumistic arts whose purpose is to serve. The Inner Quest is home to the lineage of Theurgic Mediumship©.

Inner Quest tutors, Simon James and Brian Robertson, draw upon traditional methods of teaching as a foundation upon which to create progressive and innovative ways of reawakening ancient knowledge within present day practice. The intention is to foster the development of the “everyday medium”, and to restore the art of transcommunication to its healing roots.

The Centre is based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and offers courses in transcommunication, spiritual healing and related disciplines at various levels of experience, both professional and non-professional.

The Inner Quest retreats and courses provide a host of exciting opportunities for students depending on their goals and level of experience. We invite you to find and redevelop trust in your intuition and your personal spiritual practice. Experience a journey of the Spirit aimed at discovering your everyday mediumship, your soul expression and your connection to the Spirit.

Notice: Due to the coronavirus, the Inner Quest Centre has cancelled most retreats and courses for 2020. We are monitoring the situation and will make decisions according to provincial health recommendations.
