The Spiritual Venturers' Association was formed in 1970 in Brighton by Edmund Harold, an internationally known clairvoyant and trance channel. A large part of his life has been as a practitioner of Natural Healing Therapy; healer, teacher, lecturer, mystic and author of six books (Crystal Healing : Master Your Vibration : Vision Tomorrow : Second Sight : Know Yourself Heal Yourself : and Hocus Pocus). Edmund now resides in Australia and - fulfilling a lifelong dream - has established a Mystery School in 1998 where he teaches healing and seership. His aim is not just to provide people with information about themselves, their bodies, minds and spirits; he also gives them ways in which they can achieve their own inner balance and harmony. The Spiritual knowledge and teaching of the SVA has been carried to many countries including Australia , Austria , Canada , South Africa , New Zealand and the UK . The SVA's purpose is to share available knowledge with those wanting to expand their consciousness by an appreciation of holistic concepts and the development of their own inner awareness. The secretary of the SVA in the UK is Kathleen Huddlestone who opened her own natural therapy centre in 1981 and founded one of the first crystal healing schools in the country.
