The story of The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre in Edinburgh has been told for the first time in a brand new book written by its chair, Ann Treherne.
Arthur and Me documents how Sir Arthur Conan Doyle communicating from beyond the grave led to the founding of the centre.
The book, whose foreword is written by Prof Chris Roe, President of The Society for Psychical Research, London and Professor of Psychology, University of Northampton, takes us back to Ann’s earlier career in banking.
Back then she seemed amongst the least likely to believe in paranormal phenomena. But as she describes frankly in this book, she was confronted by a profound personal experience – a traumatic premonition.
Struggling to make sense of her experience and harbouring guilt from not acting on her vision, Ann embarks on a journey – a journey of investigation and exploration into the strange world of the paranormal.
Ann eventually sets up a spiritualist circle. During these sessions, Ann records the first intervention of a communicator who would later reveal himself to be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Over six years, Sir Arthur directed Ann to find a building that was to become The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre in Edinburgh.
Today, The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre is a centre for wellbeing and spiritual events in Scotland.
People from all over the world come to connect to their inner-self and the universe beyond through various practices.
The centre hosts activities for all paths of life including yoga, tarot, crystal healing, meditations, soul retreats, talks and more.
Situated in Edinburgh’s West End, the beautiful Victorian townhouse rich in history is now a holistic centre for the spiritual, physical, and mental wellbeing of society.
Named in honour of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle after his many years dedicated to the study and practice of spiritualism, the centre continues his legacy of opening the world of spirituality to everyone.
