Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
As we are not clinicians, if you are experiencing any physical or mental distress, please consult a licensed healthcare provider.
Thank you for your interest in our work at the Windbridge Institute. Below are answers to some of the most Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) we receive. Please take a moment to look them over as there is a good chance it has relevant information about your inquiry. If your question is not on the list, you can contact us, however, due to the high volume of email we receive, we may not be able to provide you with a personal reply.
Can you recommend a medium?
We cannot recommend a specific medium for you.
A list of Windbridge Certified Research Mediums (WCRMs) can be found here.
Please note that all WCRMs were tested using phone readings. A medium does not need to be in your area to receive a successful phone reading. For more info, see my blog post: “Readings with a Medium: Phone vs. In-person” at
How can I become a Windbridge Institute Certified Medium?
The funding for the certification program has ended and we are no longer certifying or testing mediums. There are no plans to reopen the program.
What do the mediumship levels mean?
Levels are a measure of participation in the program; they are not a measure of accuracy or ability. Levels increase in relation to the years the mediums are the program and the studies in which they participate. The maximum level is 5 and all of the mediums on our team have achieved this level.
I am having Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STEs). Can you help me?
No. We are a research organization; we cannot offer personal advice, direction, or suggestions. If you are experiencing any physical or mental distress, please consult a licensed health care provider. You may also find the resources provided by the American Center for the Integration of Spiritually Transformative Experiences (ACISTE, like “assist”) to be helpful: http://aciste.org/index.php/about-stes
I have a special ability. Will you study/test me?
As a general rule, we do not study individuals.

However, a single paperback book titled Investigating Mediums is available which includes the content from all three e-books plus additional articles. Please also note that you can download and read Kindle books instantly on almost any tablet, smartphone, computer, or other device using free reader apps available from Amazon.com.

How can I contact Dr. Beischel directly?
If you have a question for Dr. Beischel that has not already been answered in this FAQ, her published research, her books, or interviews, you can send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, given the demands on Dr. Beischel’s time, you may not receive a response. If you are from the media and wish to request an interview, please email email@example.com.

I sent you a transcript of a mediumship/psychic reading (either for myself or for one of the members of your staff). Will you give me feedback on it?
We do not read unsolicited readings and we can not give feedback on readings that were collected outside of our research.
