Voices Across the Veil Makes Mediums Available to More People

Michelle Szabo founded the Voices Across the Veil program that makes medium readings available to a broader range of people. The program offers small group sessions of six or fewer people who log on from their locations as a group for 45 to 90 minutes and link via video conference to a medium. The medium gives messages from anyone on the other side of the veil who comes through to each person. The mediums are skilled professionals with proven track records. They include Lauren Bortolami, Jessica Costello, Alain Jean-Baptiste, Denise Lescano, Laura Mendelsohn, Jen Queen, Anna Raimondi, Wendy Van de Poll, and others.

Dr. Dennis Grega is a research psychologist and has combined this training with computer technology to develop numerous software applications over the past 30 years.  Voices Across the Veil expands upon the research already presented on in a new and exciting way: by providing on-line, small-group sessions (6-10 people) with world-class mediums. Participants are given the opportunity to personally experience communication from loved ones at a more affordable cost.

The results of this ongoing program will be compared with historical writings, aggregated and presented on, on sites of participating mediums as well as in papers, journals, and conferences focused upon Life After Death research.
