Dunfermline Association of Spiritualists and Kindred Spirits, (D.A.S.K.); Registered Scottish Charity No SC035437
Introduction to Dunfermline A.S.K.
Welcome to Dunfermline Association of Spiritualists and Kindred Spirits, also known as Dunfermline A.S.K. We are a non-denominational organisation, that promotes Spiritualism through Divine Services every Sunday, Demonstrations of Mediumship, Spiritual Healing, Private Consultations,(readings), Workshops and also Open Days for the public.
Dunfermline A.S.K. is a Registered Charity in Scotland (SC 035437) and was formed in April 2004, for the purpose of bringing Spiritualism and a wider knowledge of the spirit, to those that wish to further develop their own awareness of their spiritual path or may indeed just be curious. Our founding member, Jock McArthur sadly for us, made his transition back into the world of spirit in February 2012. Jock has made his presence known in many ways for many people around the country and world, leaving no doubt for those that have seen, heard and felt him, that there is indeed a place out of sight and just a breath away that we go to when we shed the physical body. If you receive contact from Jock that you are in no doubt about, please let us know we would be delighted to know. We also saw the passing to spirit of Tilda Wilson in February 2012 and in February 2013, our Treasurer and Founding member, Helen McArthur also passed to spirit side of life.
As we are a non-denominational, we welcome people of any faith or religion to join us for any of the activities provided. Many of our events are held in the Community Centre at Mercer Place, Touch in Dunfermline, http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=KY11_4UG , however we also deliver workshops, events and seminars throughout Fife; Scotland and abroad. As with many Spiritualist Organisations, we have adopted the seven principles of Emma Britten.

Workshop delivered by International Medium – Advancing Your Mediumship – Saturday 25th April 2015 in Touch Community Centre
Are you looking to stretch your mediumship to the next level? Are you looking to work hard? Are you looking for someone to give you honest feedback? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then this workshop with Philip is for you. Philip has was tutored early by renowned International medium Paul Jacobs at the world famous Arthur Findlay College, which left a profound impression upon his development. Philip demonstrates and delivers workshops within the UK and at the Zwanenhof Residential Spiritual Centre in Holland. It is Philips belief that the Mediums work should be focused on presenting evidential accurate information of the life lead by the loved one beyond reasonable doubt, therefore proving the continual existence of the human soul. With the greatest of passions Philip strives to bring this truth to those wanting to open their minds to the reality of evidential Mediumship, while also educating others seeking to realise their own abilities through fresh and modern approaches.

Psychics and Mediums
Most people think that a psychic is also a medium or vice versa. However, these two terms are very different from one another. If you want to get the services of a psychic or a medium, you have to know their different capabilities in order to get accurate insights into the spiritual world.
A medium will always have psychic abilities, however psychics will not always be able to work mediumistically.
A psychic can link only with the energies of another physical person, (i.e. someone termed as ‘living’), a medium can link with the energies of another physical, (psychic), but can also directly communicate with the energies of someone who has passed over into spirit side of life. This latter ability cannot be performed by someone working purely on a psychic level.
A medium serves as a channel between the physical world and the world of the non-physical, the sole purpose of this exchange is to prove survival, give spiritual healing and give hope to the bereaved, this is beyond the abilities of any psychic.
On the other hand, a psychic might foretell the future by using several ways. For example, a psychic might provide insights for you concerning relationships, career, money, or love by reading your own aura or energy.
A medium can foresee these things or future events, however will not normally pass it on to a recipient, except on very general terms, as it is not the Medium or the spirit world’s job to direct a recipient’s life in any way shape or form.
A medium communicates messages from spirit people and passes these onto you, the sitter. In contrast, a psychic will read your aura and may tell you information that could influence your future. This means that a psychic will interacts with you the sitter and not your loved ones in the unseen world known as the spirit world.
A psychic and a medium are different from each other in that a psychic reads your aura and may interpret this to foretell your future while a medium works with the spirit world to prove continuation of life after what is known as physical death.
