Mavis Pittilla OSNU CSNU LSSNU Officiant and Certificate holder of the Spiritualists’ National Union

final-new-pic-mpHer journey began in 1966 on a bright summer day when she saw a male figure build up in the living room at her home.   At the time she was very seriously ill having been told that she had onlythree months to live, the man told her to ‘go and find a healer orshe would not hear the New Year bells.’ The shock of this experience and the pursuit of spiritual healing led her to lifetime of dedication to Spiritualism.

Mavis had spontaneous clairvoyance and clairaudience but had to learn to control it and utilise it properly. She initially trained under the tutorship of a gentleman called Mr Brookes at her local church in Middleton, near Manchester, but was then taken under the wing of Gordon Higginson the most knowledgeable and inspirational medium of the 20th Century. This was a wonderful grounding and education and it also created a close and lasting friendship with this remarkable man.

Thus began an adventure which has seen her work with the Kabalic Masters on the shores of Galilee a rare experience for anyone, but particularly for a woman with the third eye. She has demonstrated mediumship in South Africa accompanied by a Soweto choir from the shanty towns. She worked in Ireland during the troubles supporting Protestant and Catholic families all feeling the same pain in grief. There have been many other unique and memorable situations where her ability has been stretched and tested all for the benefit of both worlds. She has worked in lots of countries throughout the world; America, Canada, New Zealand, Holland, Norway, Iceland, Spain to name a few.

mentorshipThroughout the years she has been fortunate enough to witness physical mediumship in a way it is unlikely to be seen again. She has seen recognisable figures build from ectoplasm, she has received apports as well as watching them develop in these physical circles. Through the trumpet she has heard direct voice and also has experienced levitation and astral travel. A trance medium herself, she has sat with many trance mediums and helped in their development.

Mavis is also a keen proponent of the tarot cards and has practised the art for over thirty years she does not feel that destiny is totally fixed and that the cards make you the master of your destiny not the pawn in the game of life.

She was introduced to the Arthur Findlay College by Gordon Higginson in the late sixties and she became a tutor and eventually senior tutor. Her great passion is teaching whether it be the fundamentals or advanced mediumship.

award1She provides master classes for tutors and indeed has been instrumental in helping to develop many of the younger mediums currently working in this country and abroad.

The author of the book ‘Mavis with Spirit,’ she has recorded numerous CDs including ‘The Spirit Within’ and has also appeared on several television programmes. She has recorded several films including Channel 4’s ‘The Reunion’

Mavis still works throughout the world but her home base is in Macclesfield where she provides private consultations. She also works hard in the Spiritualist Churches in the North West maintaining her grass routes belief in her religion. She firmly believes that ‘Love’ like life can never die.

Mavis has been a medium for fifty years and has experienced amazing facets of spiritual reality
