SÉANCE - Spiritualist Ritual and the search for Ectoplasm - Shannon Taggart publishes compelling work of art!

As author Mitch Horowitz says about professional photographer Shannon Taggart, there are with every generation only a few true seekers and artists who feel and comprehend their work as something like a true calling.
Shannon Taggart is definitely one of them!
It is modern day spiritualisms most mystifying apparitions that still occur in a relyable historical regularity since the early days of photography. 
By them Shannon is fascinated, beginning early childhood and turning into a professional passion today, as a photographer.

And in 'ectoplasm' the mystery of Spiritualism somehow culminates - sometimes in hard to understand and to accept undecipherable codings, but that even strengthens its attraction.

For example for those from a parapsychological background, but the performance of the mysterious sometimes even resembles forms of modern art!

So it's no wonder that the paranormal does and always did interest the art-scene also and Shannon Taggarts new book does close the circle exactly at that point.


The reader of her book covers with her the 16 years of photography and spans the geographical locations her story and travels took her to. The reader gets plunged into the hazy red light atmospheres of the séance-rooms of Lilydale and other places, meets strange people and is page by page confronted with the unspeakable - that shows up either open in front of her lense or is exposed in photographic techniques that represent Shannons own art!
So it is not the discussion about evidentiality fueling the attraction, but the artistically presented para-realism of the 'substantivity' of the occult within our actual reality. 

One of Shannons images we are presenting here exclusively is showing the American medium Susan Barnes at Lilydale, the oldest spiritualistic community in the States, during a presentation of the rare 'transfiguration' phenomenon.
In red light the face of an entranced medium deforms in so far, that other faces start to appear. Typically these are the faces of the deceased! 
In Shannons book we are presented a whole set of photographs showing Susan Barnes different changes in appearance, strongly resembling photographs of the only few protagonists in history who were seemingly able to demonstrate actual facial changes. 
True transfiguration describes changes in the physiognomy of the mediums face to become another literally!

To validate objectivity photography always was the chosen medium for those investigating the paranormal!
So let's see what Shannons camera was able to make from the moment of Susan Barnes transfiguration! Obviously a lot: we see in our exclusive image Susan exactly in one of the moments the strange transfigurative process is taking place and the image reveals the unexplainable in front of our eyes! 
Medium Susan Barnes face 'breaks' open to expose another smaller face. Taken by Shannon Taggart under séance-room conditions 2016 in Lilydale, New York.
 A different second face is actually appearing on the image, not exactly besides hers, not exactly overlapping, but in an even more mystifying form. It is smaller than the mediums and comes from a totally different angle, what cannot be explained with the longer exposure time of that image. In that case the mediums face simply would appear a second time on the image and look into another direction and a blurred section would be inbetween.
To get the above result by a planned moving of the body within the exposure time frame, the medium must have strongly changed her whole position and comparing the different eye-sizes she must have stood up or slided with the chair in a completely new position a good deal farer from the camera than she was at the beginning. I guess we can exclude that such things have taken place during the session. That would have caused total blurring and not what we see here! We see only a minimum blurring on the photo at all! 
The face moreover does not necessarily resemble the mediums face but from a photographic standpoint the real phenomenal momentum caught by camera is the borderline section between both faces.
Because here we have no blurring at all!
It more looks as if the original face would somehow 'break open' to expose the smaller one. 
This effect is rather strange. 
We are privileged here to look at a genuine phenomenon of some sort, somewhere located between Susan Barnes face and Shannon Taggart photography. 

Look at these rich and interesting pages we are sharing here from the book! A clear recommendation from our side!

Witness account, Sitter No.3: 'The spirit stands to the left, a bit behind the medium and is embracing the medium. Embracing it from behind, over the mediums shoulders. The spirit-form was fully in motion, the white material also like pulsed...!'

Experimental Result after different stages of upbuilding demonstrated to 25 observers at the BPV, Basle, Switzerland, the 17th of March 2017
 These are first extracts from incoming witness accounts describing a Materialization-Experiment at the Basle PSI Association, the 17th of March 2017.

In front of more than two dozens observers a spirit form materialized and de-materialized gradually in different display stages...
But because the camera failed to capture the most of it, we have asked for some comments of attendees from that night!
Material extruded from mediums mouth in massive quantities...
One of the early and upbuilding stages is referred to in Witness Account, Sitter No. 1: 'At that time the medium has its arms outstretched, holding wide open the cabinet...One time it (the materialized spirit) was behind the medium and embraces him, holding him with arms over his chest and resting its head on the mediums shoulder...

One of the closest seated sitters adds in Witness Account, Sitter No. 2: 'Its hair was like curly and also it appeared a kind of grey to me...'

Unfortunately the camera had a malfunction and so many photos are unfocussed...
Lucky enough we were to get at least this sharp image of the huge female looking figure looking 'down' at us...
Sitters left and right look up to the divine creature, the delicate majestic spirit phantom

 The most complete state of the Materialization describes - among others - Witness Account, Sitter No. 4: 'The phantom now stands in front of the medium, a huge and slim very well visible female-human being, fully enwrapped in white linen-like ectoplasmic spirit cloth. Perfectly built and very naturally looking, also her eyes section fixating us all...'

Then we find in Witness Account, Sitter 1: 'Another time i focussed onto the floor, the ectoplasmic garment was a third of a foot above the floor. The phantom was floating...!'
Gradually less and less ectoplasm is shown reducting around the medium. The mass in front of his belly was the last opening before everything was completely gone

The building down is remarked in Witness Account, Sitter No.3, saying:'In two contrary steps the dismounting of the ectoplasm is being shown...
In front of the belly the last small quantities of ectoplasm reducting.
The medium steps out of the cabinet held open and shows there is nothing left of the white masses'
Medium exits the cabinet showing its totally empty interior after the complete disappearance of the spirit cloth...

Before it all started with the Materialization sitters were receiving gifts from the spirit world. The massive 'Sunstone' appeared from a light inbetween the outstretched mediums hand in 40 W red light and fell rumbling to the floor. Altogether 71 gemstones were produced mainly from mouth inmidst speaking, meanwhile some fell in the dark everytime the spirit control for conversation returned after an alleged retreat from the scene...

Eventually we can share with you some hard facts about the FLOW Circles Activities, and they do come in visual form. A video clip reporting some events and showing the strange apportation ability of Deep Trance Medium Albert.
The only drop of bitterness is the strict anonymity Albert has to uphold, because of his high ranked job in German finance.
Anyway we will keep you posting with news and recordings from the circle, because Albert, besides he has some kind of natural trance ability was coming as a scholar for years from the South of Germany to Hanau and trained the guidelines of the Felix Circles school, so to speak.
So we are particularly proud about the development.
We believe it is not a coincidence that his first phenomena very much resemble those of the Felix Circle Medium: Raps, Levitation, Trance, Apportation and finally...Ectoplasm!
And particularly happy we are about the fact, that it is Albert, an absolutely unquestionable character in his sixties already!

Stewart Alexander writes in his book that even though there might have been minor phenomena from the start, from another point in time onwards it was as if a knot had bursted, a floodgate opened and phenomena were starting to build quickly and show strength and stability, unprecedented.
With the Felix Circle Medium it was happening as well that way.
And Albert and his FLOW circle seemed to have reached that point in time at this very moment!

So now we wanna wish you some amazing moments watching Albert producing something of a size and nature that does not at all match with the natural environment it is coming from.

TWO PRIVATE SÉANCES AT MY HOME WITH K.M. - PART TWO - Independent Report by Healing Practitioner and Information Scientist Ute S.


(Author Ute Sautter, born 1959, is one of these rare truely gifted mediums and professional practitioners in the field of the etheric. Already trained as a professional dowser 1994, the information- and computer scientist became a professional healing practitioner with several trainings starting 2000. She published together with Dr. H.Wiesendanger, a renowned holistic scientist and healer in the german-speaking environment. From early years on she always received extra-sensoric information and became also a scholar at the Arthur Findlay College to complete her skills with additional trainings in Germany.
She is today herself a well-known professional healer, working medium and animal communicator in a successful own practice in the south of Germany. She is a gifted trance-speaker and active in Physical Mediumship for several years. She has early involvement in the Felix Circles work and visits circle, members and medium K.M. for years. Frequently she invites and holds private séances with the Felix Circles Medium in her own rooms in M.)  

Saturday exclusively K.M.'s experienced sitters here in M., were present, who all had sat multiple times before in his séances. 
That evening I myself served as the medium-controller, holding and securing him on his chair during darkness phenomena. On the mediums other side his wife supports my control duties holding him as well. 

Already at the beginning bright lights were discharging, from inside the cabinet and in front of it.
After the medium had sunken in his deep trance completely, 'Hans', the trance- or 'spirit'-control was friendly greeting the sitters. 
Witnessing the most early phenomena, 'Hans' again claimed spirit children were present, who activated the distant musical instruments in the focus-area on the other side of the circle.  
Something uncommon was happening when i secured the medium on its chair this time, suddenly he wanted his wife Julia to let him go and meanwhile in the focus area 7 feet distant from the medium was high spirit-activity, the medium completely turned towards me and I held and secured both arms and legs between mine. His wife instead overgave her hands and feet to her neighbour. 

The holding control measures basicly, and specifically their variations, already exercised the night before also, are showing repeatedly and unmisunderstandably Kais full independency from the phenomena. 
The rest of the nights control schemes though were the regular ones - medium held from both sides. 

'Hans' early announced an extraordinary object to be materialized for Julia, mediums wife. She had birthday next day and it was called to be an appreciation of thankfulness and empathy by the spirit team!
The medium sat at that point in time in front of the cabinet and in low red light it shook repeatedly its hands (he wore a t-shirt, bare arms). 

It was obviously a very exhausting process. Again and again it stretched out its hands and suddenly with a flash of light and a well audible rumble a huge stone fell from them onto the floor.
Examining it, it turned out to be a wonderful, mossgreen Center-Stone.
The color is totally extraordinary and as a birthday present from the spirits, who appreciate all her hard work for them, what a true blessing.

Picture: Julias massive and heavy center stone for her untiring work for the spirit realms

Hans kept on talking about - another - apport to happen, claiming it to be very old and rare! A heavy glass-like artifact, allegedly manufactured in the 13th century by a group of very wise adepts in a Laboratory in Bamberg, a Bajuvarian town. Eleven pieces of them the spirit communicator claimed were originally be created, but only seven of them were still active today

A stone that cannot be simply substituted - when broken - by another. A sensitive sacred object: the'Blood-Stone' (an Activation Stone also, but a specific rare edition).
By no means it is called bloodstone because of its ruby-red color, but because 'it is connecting the souls like blood would do with organs'!
The stone has the power truely 'to influence Karma', channels 'powerful energies' and has the ability 'to enhance spirutal healing powers when hung under the ceiling' above the treatment zone I was told.

With a light coming from under the rooms ceiling a huge ruby-red stone appeared on the floor. Julia overgave it to me!

In connection with this, Hans layed out how 'they' overcome distances when apporting within the three-dimensional time-space. He used a landmap with two distant locations marked on it to explain. The fastest way to get from one spot to another is to fold the map, put both marked locations directly above one another and pinch a needle through. 'We are folding time space', he said! How interesting!!

Picture: The ruby red 'Bloodstone' and the objects from the mediums eyes plus another clear 'Activation Stone' found beneath the curtains cloth afterwards. 

During Hans' talk objects pattered onto the floor and a lot of objects came from mouth and eyes of the medium. They were a lot of small cut multicolored stones and metallic crosses also

After that curtains were closed. The medium had retreated into the cabinet. 'Hans' remarked, after it did not work to create distant handforms last time, they would start another try closer to the medium. 
After a few seconds the medium exited the cabinet and fired outbursts of light again and again onto itself, coming from its hands. This enabled us to identify a slender hand sitting on the mediums head having a porcelain like look with  a classical sleeve like cloth around its wrist coming from out of the dark behind him...!  Not everybody could see that quite well but i could. The hand moved down from his upper hand to his forehead. Accompanied by these strange blueish outbursts of light coming from the mediums hand until everybody had eventually identified what they were looking at...!
Absolutely astonishing!
The hand was looking strangely well formed and smooth, not like the oftentimes malformed hands we encountered usually. 
The curtains closed and 'Hans' announced spirit visitors to come. One of them allegedly coming purposefully for me!?

Picture: The both main objects together...!

He said that ectoplasm was to be extruded and the curtains opened again: On the mediums chest was a white mass visible and the medium drew and pulled its fibrous appearance permanently. Doing so the images of 3 humans started to appear!

Very delighted I became aware of my spirit guide 'Red Cloud' above the other two human heads, ready to show up for me that particular evening!
There was another woman and another man visible too, who came for somebody else in the room.
Very likely the male one was a female sitters father and about the woman i haven't heard about from visitors present that evening...!

After this extremely impressing finale the séance came to an end. Everybody was fascinated and deeply impressed!
We want to express our gratitude to the medium K. and his wife J. and to all the spirits behind them having made that evening possible!

TWO PRIVATE SÉANCES AT MY HOME WITH K.M. - PART ONE - Independent Report by Healing Practitioner and Information Scientist Ute S.

Frequently she invites and holds private séances with the Felix Circles Medium in her own rooms in M.) 

Information Scientist, Medium and Healer Ute Sautter, gifted and professional in both worlds


Here comes the report of the Private Séances held 18/19th of February 2017, for guests of mine in M., by Mr. K.M.. 
K. is the deep trance medium, the Physical Medium, of the German Felix Circle
He was demonstrating mediumship and spirit interaction Friday and Saturday night. 
Friday more than the half of the sitters were totally new to such processes resp. to physical spirit phenomena generally. 
Saturday only sitters with extensive experience in sitting for K. were present. 

Friday, 18th of February, 2017


My husband is the independent controller holding the medium at arms and legs together with his wife in front of the cabinet. 
Already early the first lights start to appear in front of it.
The spirit 'Hans' greets the sitters. 
They are eagerly singing and a multitude of touches are experienced. 

A little spirit visitor is introduced by the spirit control 'Hans' through the controlled and held medium, and we hear its lumbering steps on the floor. Shortly later the turned around bucket is being drummed on by him, the rattle is being thrown and then pushed by the little spirit boy over the floor! We clearly hear tiny naked feet on the wooden floor and 'Hans' remarks jokingly he shouldn't get a cold that way and starts laughing his overwhelming 'Hohoho'. 
After the spirit had gone the illuminated balls-experiment is executed and the glowing balls are clearly manipulated by the 'spirit-energies' in an unreachable distance from the fast held medium. 

Following, the shiny plaque is focus of the next experiment. Unfortunately this time no handform does appear as it should. 'Hans', the spirit control is speculating about the new sitters unprepared energy fields to be responsible therefore. A new form of control was installed also. Frequently during the séance the holding-controllers of the medium report the state of their duty to the rest of the sitters. 


Somewhen that evening Julia was leaning over the medium and gave her both hands and Kais she held into my husbands hands. Usually it is the other was around and the independent holder leans over to Julia and checks her control measures executed at the mediums body. 
Afterwards different apport phenomena were going on. A sitter was getting a buddha-medallion materialized, into her cup-forming hands from a flash of light under the mediums hands. 
Another sitter was asked to sit right opposite to the medium and after checking K.s bare hands, they were held up high for everybody to see and into the sitters lower held cup-formed hands an apport materialized falling down from above as well.
With a shiny bright light it was a Ganesha figurine falling down. 
All these objects are, following the spirit control for sitter conversation 'Hans', imprinted with specific information and energies for the chosen receiver, helping and supporting him in his goals.  
One more apport phenomena was actually happening. This time introduced by a bright light coming from under the rooms ceiling.
It left behind two clear Activation Stones in front of some sitters feet. 
Materialized Objects from the spirit controls


It is vitally important to clearly state, that the medium was always in a controlled condition! 
Specificly meanwhile spirit powers are active in the room, the spirit itself asks for tightening the controls of the medium Kai and his wife repeatedly and untiredly.
Then it came to another 'Clear Activation Stone'-apport, also facilitated with a blinding light through a mediums hand into the hands of a sitter. (For red light episodes like this the medium is allowed to stand up after having been released from the holding, editor)
Then another classic was announced. The spirit control asked mediums wife to make ready the glowing-in-the-dark handkerchief. Hans then requested to overhand it to a specific sitter somewhere in the darkness of the room.
This lady-sitter was holding the hanky then at its corner and early spirit-forces were tearing around at the piece of cloth. The lady held it fast and strong and it danced underneath her hand a wild dance. When the energies had buillt up and were capeable obviously to overtake it, she let go and it started to float over to the other side of the circle and landed there on the knee of an opposite seated lady.


We moved towards the end of this intensive evening.
Spiritcontrol 'Hans' announced the 'secretion' of ectoplasm now through the mediums body.
Under a low red light all sitter could observe, how the medium gathered the strange mass from its mouth. A huge amount of ectoplasm, looking like a thick, white, fibrous strand, exited more and more the medium. Eventually it seperated from its host and layed as a huge white mass in front of the mediums feet. Soon it started to pulsate´, to 'breath' and a hand-like form was building from it. The form became more and more clearly identifyable, it gained more and more ectoplasmic completion.

But because everything seemed quite exhausting for the medium today, the end of this quite adventureous evening was announced by 'Hans'.

And even though several first timers were present (and the spirits usually act reluctantly), the old-timers considered the evening extremely interesting.


(stay tuned for the report about the second séance specifically for experienced sitters - in how far have there been differences, if at all?)

Blueish Sparks in Spirit Matter – Spirit Controls demonstrate varied phenomena through German Mediumship (Independent Report)

Another report about a sitting with International Guests in Lugnorre, Switzerland – written in a joint effort by the sitters afterwards:

Amazing experience with K.M., physical medium from the Felix circle, in Lugnorre, at the 'Circle of primordial lights' homebase, Switzerland. This report was taken from the recording and written together by the sitters from their recollections. The séance took 1 hour 37mins.

The séance room was 4x5 metre and the table used was a white picnic table. There were 10 sitters including the medium and his wife. Julia was placed in the corner to control the light and was unable to leave her place without requesting sitters to move out of the way. The cabinet was about 2 metres away from the sitters and the medium, who sat with his back towards it. In the cabinet was a chair with a trumpet, tambourine and a small native American Indian rattle and a small bell. Tambourine and trumpet had luminous tabs. Under the chair were white pages of paper and a pen.  

Light off and sitters started singing. Half way through the second song an object was placed on the table first undetected!  When we investigated it was a little table from the other side of the room, with a table runner, a candle, a rattle and a handheld small drum on it. All items remained on the little table when it was moved. From the medium, who sat tight with the others around the table, the table stood in the corner to the right of the cabinet in its back. K.M., whose phenomena are knowingly related to these paranormal transports, is used to sing or speak loudly and permanently from his  seat  meanwhile the upcoming events were seemingly somehow parallely happening.

We saw yellowish sparks of light from now on frequently and then we heard 2 beats on the big drum being played, positioned on the opposite side with of the cabinet. The table then lifted about a metre off the floor. A small desk bell, which the organisers had bought in the morning, was heard ringing on one of the cupboards around the sitters  and then fell on the floor, from where it was by unseen force picked up and put it on the table also. 

The big drum was suddenly played loudly inmidst of the circle above the table and then dropped on it. Then many knockings were heard all around the room., walls and ceiling. The instruments were thrown of the chair in the cabinet and the table again lifted very high of the floor. A small bell landed on the table, then the trumpet came out of the cabinet above the sitters and hit the wall – fell down.
Small and large Slim Spurling rings (Light-life tool) were taken from under the cupboard and then found on the floor between the sitters.
 The intelligence acknowledged the sitter’s gratitude by knocking in response on the roof five times.  
Sitters smelled smoke of sweet grass and sage even though they were not lit in the room. The tambourine came from the cabinet and hit the floor, a small break and then with strong energy the tambourine moved at high speed through the room.

A sitter proclaimed someone was standing next to her and then she felt a cloth moving over her face and then we felt and heard a strong breeze, made with the cabinet curtains we assume.

Then the cabinet was opened and fastened to stay open. The medium complained that someone pulled his hair and at the same moment a sitter opposite stated the same.
Then the trumpet left the cabinet again and this time circled around the table above the sitters heads for full 30 seconds (recording). The medium asked for the tambourine to land on the table and the tambourine was seen and heard to come from the cabinet and hit the table hard and dropped on to the floor between 2 sitters. When the red light came on, the table floated up, more than a meter off the floor, while all sitter’s hands were seen on top of the table.                                                       The light was switched off and a loud energy crackling from the direction of the cabinet was heard by all sitters.
Then we heard a strong bang and a sitter said she had a stone on her lap. When we investigated, there was a whole in the table (bang) and the ‚bloodstone’ from above the table had come out of its hanger and hit the table. Also now, there was the chair from the cabinet standing on the table. 
Picture: The hanging of the Alchemical Bloodstone collapsed and released the heavy artefact, falling down, hitting a hole into the table...

Suddenly, the sitters all observed a light  flashing up (like from a camera) in front of the medium and then the flashes repeated every 5-10 seconds 15 times (total about 2 mins) and the flashes seemed to be white at the beginning and then seemed to originate in a blue spark moving into white. The medium stated later, that a few seconds earlier he had felt something like a moist warm cloth being wrapped around his upper body and then he fainted. We observed a considerable mass of  ectoplasm coming from the mouth of the medium, who held his cupped hands up in front of his solar plexus area about 25cm away from his body. Ectoplasm was building on his hands and was also seen forming a covering over the mediums head, during the light flashes. The lit up scene with the blueish energy looked very special indeed. The light somehow illuminated the strange mass – or was the mass pulsing light itself? It seemed the spirit control was trying to speak, but then the medium returned and the energy seemed depleted. Table kept tapping one leg strongly on the floor for about 3 mins and the medium closed the circle. Sitters exclaim that they are extremely grateful for this amazing experience.
