Meet the Windbridge Certified Research Mediums (WCRMs)
medium: an individual who experiences regular communication with the deceased
Before participating in research at the Windbridge Institute, each prospective research medium is screened over several months using an intensive 8-step screening and training procedure:
Step 1: Written Questionnaire
Step 2: Personality/Psychological Tests
Step 3: Phone Interview (with an existing WCRM)
Step 4: Phone Interview (with a Windbridge Investigator)
Step 5: Two Blinded Phone Readings
Step 6: Mediumship Research Training
Step 7: Human Research Subjects Training
Step 8: Grief Training
Upon successful completion of the eight steps, the medium becomes a Level 1 Windbridge Certified Research Medium (WCRM-1). The mediums’ certification levels increase over time, from Level 1 to Level 5, as they participate in additional research studies.
Levels are a measure of participation in the program;
they are not a measure of accuracy or ability.
Each WCRM agrees to donate a minimum of four hours per month to assist in various aspects of the research, to embrace a strong commitment to the values of scientific mediumship research.
For compete details of the screening and training procedure, see the following published, peer-reviewed paper:

Funding for the WCRM program has ended.
We are no longer screening mediums.

For more information about each medium and the types of readings they perform (e.g., in-person, phone, groups, public, etc.), please visit their websites. Please note that there is substantial scientific evidence supporting the accuracy and significance of telephone readings, so a medium does not need to be in your area to provide a reading for you. All of the mediums listed below were laboratory screened and tested using telephone readings.
For tips about making the most of your mediumship reading, please see Meaningful Messages by Dr. Julie Beischel.
