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.

Three Branches of Study

Three branches of study provide a variety of opportunities for students depending on their goals, experience level, locale and time opportunities. Explore the many options!
