Eugenia Bushman

Eugenia Bushman:

Eugenia Bushman is a gifted medium and psychic with over 30 years experience. She started as a medium some months after her grandfather passed away. A profound experience occurred while talking with her father. Eugenia became increasingly aware of the presence of a spirit which “felt” familiar. She talked to the spirit; it was the spirit of her grandfather. Granddad reassured her with at touch and she passed on the message that he wished to impart to the family. This is when Eugenia and her family became deeply aware of her mediumistic abilities.

Following in her grandmother’s footsteps, she began learning the healing and metaphysical arts at the age of nine. Trained by professionals, Eugenia has a variety of esoteric knowledge. Her unique and sensitive blending of her talents in mediumship, numerology, and tarot will provide you with a rare, rewarding and informative experience.

In addition to her metaphysical studies, Eugenia is a certified hypno-counselor with the National Guild of Hypnotists and a certified holistic healer with the Ecumenical Society of Psychorientology (Silva).

Eugenia's sessions are a half hour long and are $60.  At your choice, they can be all mediumship, all psychic, (Tarot cards and/or scrying), or a combination of the two.

Eugenia will do a hour session provided it is half mediumship and half psychic, (Tarot cards and/or scrying).  An hour session is $120.

Eugenia is available for sessions Monday evenings and Saturday afternoons.

Eugenia does sessions both in person and by phone.  Prepayment by money order is required for phone sessions.  The money order is to be made payable to 'Eugenia Bushman' and mailed to The Journey Within, 25 Carr St, Pompton Lakes, NJ  07442.

Dale first noticed she was “different” as a child when she was able to see spirits.  She has spent her life with visitations and communications, simply accepting this as normal.

Currently, she is honored to be a member, a platform/reading medium, and a spiritual healer at The Journey Within, alongside her number one mentor, Rev. Janet Nohavec.

Dale is a member of the Spiritualists’ National Union International where she is currently completing the Platform Accreditation Scheme.  She is also privileged to partcipate in continued studies with the Reverends Simon James and Brian Robertson of The Inner Quest Foundation, Reverend Joseph Shiel III of Lily Dale, NY, as well as with Officiant Eammon Downey and Tony Stockwell SNU ... all of whose teachings she resonates with.

Dale holds a BA with a minor in Psychology and an MA+40.  She has facilitated and presented workshops in the practice of effective instruction for over 20 years.  She has completed and presented workshops in Brain Development Research, and in the use of Right Brain Hemispheric Dominance.

Dale is a firm believer that “dark entities” and “attachments” are the psyosomatic fears and stresses that people experience on this earth...illness of mind, emotion and body.  She strives to allay any fear in spirituality.

Dale offers her talents as a Spiritual Medium and Intuitive Energy Reader, with the true belief in Spiritualism aligned with philosophy, science and religion...along with the development of high morals and ethics within this work.

Her goal is to provide evidence of the continuation of the individual soul beyond physical death...and in the act of spiritual be the “channel of God's peace”.

Dale's sessions are a half hour long and are $60.  At your choice, they can be all mediumship, all psychic, or a combination of the two.

Dale is available for sessions the first Monday evenings of the month.

Joseph Shiel

Joseph Shiel:

Joseph visits The Journey Within monthly except during the summer.

Joseph Shiel has known the presence of Spirit in his life since he was an infant. After years of struggle with misunderstanding the incredible value of his gifts, he emerged to embrace his talents as a Medium, Healer and Spiritual Counselor.  

He has worked with world renowned teachers in Catholicism, Spiritualism, Buddhism and other spiritual modalities to enhance and utilize his natural abilities.  He continues to develop and use his gifts to a high level of integrity to serve others and honor God's Grace.  Joseph commits himself fully to the communication with Spirit by being factual and evidential. He works to enhance and educate everyone to have an understanding of the importance of  this life and the continuity of life hereafter.

Joseph is an expressive artist who with guidance from Spirit has been able  to draw likenesses of loved ones who have passed on to the Spirit plane. These drawings are recognizable and usually quite accurate. After their session, clients have graciously provided Joseph with photographs of their loved ones to confirm and show his accuracy.

After leaving the Catholic seminary before ordination some years ago, Joseph searched tirelessly to understand his gifts and find a place to further develop his talents in order to seve for the good of God and all. He has been blessed to have worked with hundreds of people to ease their burdens and pain. Joseph has devoted his life to service of Spirit and all those who seek God's Love.

Joseph has earned his place as a Registered Medium in Lily Dale, New York and he is the former President of the Church of the Living Spirit, the largest Spiritualist church in the US.  He travels to serve one week a month at the Journey Within Church in Pompton Lakes, NJ, where he teaches classes and sees clients. Joseph is also traveling to serve people across the United States, Canada and Great Britain.  Joseph continues his work as a lecturer, teacher and seer to inspire all to open their hearts and minds to the truth of God's Love.  Joseph continues a strong association with higher learning at the Arthur Findlay College and the SNUI in Stansted, England.

Joseph  is a Chaplain, Usui Reiki Master, Spiritual Counselor, Motivational Speaker, award winning teacher, poet, musician, and artist. He makes his home in Lily Dale, New York but spends much of the off season traveling to teach classes and give readings.
