How do I apply?
You’ll be notified of your application status within one week of applying.
A $250 refundable deposit is due at the same time as your application. As we have a limited number of spaces available, your deposit will hold a spot for you.
This deposit is 100% refundable within five business days for any reason and will be returned should your application be declined.
What is the schedule, and what are the main program details?
A: All sessions will be held online through Zoom. There will be no in-person engagement.
The training program starts on January 9, 2024, and ends on December 3, 2024.
Class Sessions: 90 minutes per week on Tuesdays at 9:00am/Pacific 5:00pm UK, most weeks of the year. Students may attend live on Zoom or access the recording soon after. Students are expected to attend all class sessions or access the recordings during the same week of the live teaching.
Practical Application Mentorship Circle Sessions: 90 minutes per week at various days and times most weeks of the year. You’ll choose one group for the full year and meet at the same day and time with your teacher each week. Students are expected to attend live practice as accessing the recording cannot replace the live mentorship experience. However, recordings of your mentorship circle will be available for you to review.
What if I can't attend sessions live?
Not to worry! We have designed this program to work even for those with busy schedules, as well as for those who live in different time zones.
While we hope you’ll attend as many live sessions as possible, you’ll be able to stream recordings on our Program Homepage. You’ll never have to worry about missing a session, and you can watch them anytime and anywhere at your convenience.
If you are unable to join sessions live, we request that you access the replay within the same week of the teaching to stay up on the material. All recordings can be accessed on the Program Homepage. Recordings become available within 48 hours after each class and written transcripts within one week. You have ongoing access to these materials.
How many people will be in this program?
In an effort to create an intimate learning environment and ensure that each person receives an abundance of rich learning and support, we are limiting this program to 225 participants.
If I participate, how many hours per month should I plan on dedicating to this program?
This will vary, depending on whether you choose to attend all offerings or the minimum requirement, but on average, you can expect to spend approximately 15-24 hours per month on this program.
Are scholarships available?
We are not currently offering scholarships for this program.
What is the refund policy?
Your deposit is fully refundable within five business days of purchase for any reason. If you are not accepted into the program, you will receive a full refund.
A refund for the program, minus the deposit, is available for any reason on or before Midnight Pacific on January 23, 2024. Refunds will not be available after this date.
To request a refund, please click on this refund request form and submit your request. Qualifying refunds will be processed within five business days and an email confirming the refund will be sent. However, we’d love to have a chance to address and resolve your concerns first. If there’s something we can assist you with, please email us at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help!
(REMINDER: No refund requests accepted after the above date.)
May my enrollment be shared with a friend or family member?
No. We understand that it can be helpful to share with friends and family the meaningful insights, reflections, and revelations you experience during the program.
While we encourage you to share with others what you learn in the program, we ask that you do not share any of the program materials or anything from the Homepage or private Facebook Community Group.
Each person interested in participating in this program needs to have their own separate application and registration (even spouses).
We maintain this policy out of respect for our Faculty and to honor the contractual agreement with them. This program has been designed to replicate an in-person training as much as possible; therefore, each enrollment is designated for that participant.
Here is our full Spousal Sharing Policy:
The Shift Network is happy to offer our 2-for-1 special to spouses or partners living under the same roof for most of our foundational courses with the purchase of one full-price registration. (Spousal participation is offered at the sole discretion of the Shift Network and is subject to availability. Certain exclusions may apply. The Company reserves the right to change or cancel this policy at any time.)
However, we are unable to extend this offer to participants in any of our advanced-level or application contingent programs, such as Certification Programs, Immersion Programs, Coaching or Teacher Trainings, and any courses or programs involving 1:1 faculty coaching and mentoring sessions.
We appreciate your inquiry about this and your commitment to being in integrity. Thank you for not sharing any program materials!
Is there an online community for this program?
Yes. Our exclusive online community (currently a Facebook group) is the perfect place to continue your discovery process after each class. Here, you can continue the discussion about your program materials and interact with your fellow students to take your exploration to an even deeper level.
What is the program price, and do you offer payment plans?
The investment is $5,000 USD if paid in full. Alternate payment plan options:
- You can submit just the $250 deposit, followed by one payment of $4,750 30 days later ($5,000 in total).
- You can submit just the $250 deposit, followed by 9 monthly payments of $583 ($5,497 in total). NOTE: The total payment plan price for the 9-pay option includes a finance charge.
If you register with a payment plan, your first payment will be due upon registration, and subsequent payments will be automatically processed every 30 days until complete.
A $250 refundable deposit is due at the same time as your application. As we have a limited number of spaces available, your deposit holds a spot for you.
This deposit is 100% refundable within five business days for any reason, and 100% will be returned should your application be declined.

Jean Else - Lead Instructor
Chief Executive & Director of the Mavis Pittilla-Authorized Teacher Training Program
Jean Else received a first-class education in mediumship from her wife of 24 years, world-renowned UK medium Mavis Pittilla. Having been a schoolteacher all her life, Jean was able to transfer her organizational and educational skills to work with Mavis to develop courses and programs that helped educate aspiring mediums.
When she retired from teaching, Jean began to expand their work together, traveling the world, running workshops, and eventually developing mentorship programs. Jean became more than just the organizer, as she was immersed in all things spiritual. Tapping into her natural teaching abilities, she helped students understand the craft, public speaking, and other essential aspects of mediumship.
Mavis and Jean believed that mediums should be trained fully, just like any other profession that deals with people’s minds, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, and counselors. They emphasized that becoming an authentic medium required time commitment and in-depth study, and could not be achieved overnight.
After Mavis’ death in 2022, Jean was determined to take Mavis’ legacy forward and ensure that her remarkable knowledge and experience will continue to inspire future generations. She believes that excellent mediumship heals two worlds, and that as Mavis always said, “Love, like life, can never die.”
Spiritual Medium & Tutor
Annie Gee began to see Spirit as a child, as naturally as seeing her family and friends in the so-called real world. She soon learned not to talk about this gift openly, as children with this ability were often told it was their imagination or that it was against the family’s religious beliefs. So she shut it down, and for many years never thought about it again.
In young adulthood, she began to become interested in visiting mediums. The best and most influential of these was Mavis Pittilla, whom she met in the early 1980s. Mavis had stressed on many occasions that Annie too would do “this work,” although Annie didn't believe back then that she would become a medium herself one day. She did have further spirit experiences around this time, such as objectively seeing her grandmother and another spirit person in an apartment she had just moved into, but she didn’t feel a calling to pursue her development any further.
Sadly, at a young age, Annie lost her mother, whom she adored, which prompted her need for communication with the other side. At home one day, when Annie saw her mother sitting in her favorite chair and smiling at her, she was shocked but overjoyed. This experience rekindled her childhood memories of spirit visits, as well as more recent encounters.
