The Brian Hurst Collection


Brian Edward Hurst is a successful British author and
retired evidential medium, living in California.


His lifetime of experiences include;
attending lectures at the College of Psychic Science in London;
working in India, where he met Sathya Sai Baba and members of the Indian Spiritualist Society;
supporting and photographing psychic demonstrations of barehand surgery at Huntingdon Spiritualist Church and Stansted Hall;
attending the famous Scole group in Norfolk, then later hosting séances with the group at his home, during their time in America.


Brian has been greatly inspired by many mediums, including;
William Redmond, Nora Blackwood, Joseph Benjamin
and physical mediums Anne Copley and William Olsen.

He also became friends with Leslie Flint.

Brian first attended séances with Leslie at Westbourne Terrace in London then later in California, whenever Leslie was there on holiday.


Brian has kindly donated his recordings of some of those séances
for the benefit and interest of others.

 

Note: In most of these recordings Brian can be heard more clearly than others present, since he is nearest to the microphone.

who shares his recollections of the London Spiritual Mission church and a medium named Thomas Wyatt.
The voice of Doris tries to communicate, someone asks for Evelyn,
then George speaks with his wife Ann about family matters.


George shares good evidence with his wife about a friend who recently died,
how they have an important anniversary in two weeks time, and that he saw her looking at his old golf medal recently. After talking about the garden, George explains that they often meet in the spirit world during the night.

Mickey laughs and jokes with Ann, Leslie and Brian,
then the voice of Nurse Griffiths speaks to Norma and Brian about their healing work.
The voice of Kahuna and an unknown female communicator also offer their support.

Mickey mentions Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and suggests that Norma and Brian could start a healing sanctuary.

 and they discuss previous evidential communications.

In his usual amusing way, Mickey gives advice and good evidence to Ros and to a male sitter.
The voice of Margery Bell tries to communicate, followed by a male voice,
then Scotsman Robert Mackay speaks to Margaret about her family in Glasgow.
Mickey speaks to Margaret, then passes on a message to Eric from his wife Gladys,
about his friend the medium Doris Collins.
