Carol Ann Spencer

A third generation Salt Spring Island islander, Carol was ordained in May 2003, after extemsive training. Carol has spent many years in the study of spiritualism. A seeker of knowledge and truth she studied at the Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, England, famous for "the study of psychic science," and has had many mentors, guides, and trainers on her journey to becoming a ministor in refining her innate gifts of mediumship, clairvoyance and healing as well as in developing public speaking.

 Besides her courses, she credits her following instructors: Simon James, Brian Robertson, Mavis Patilla, Len Lobban, Eileen Davies and Reverend Patricia Gunn.

Carol believes strongly in the ancient addage "Know Thyself" which is written over the Oracle of Delphi in Greece. She was quoted in the local paper "The Driftwood" in 2004 as saying, " One's faith is a private choice and it should happen in everyone's own time." Carol's experience in her search for truth deepened when she received a communication from her father during a seance in 1991. Profoundly impacted, this propelled her into her own inward search. This was further delved into when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in in 1999. Her spiritual journey became a turn in the road encorporating personal growth as she sought to understand life issues. These experiences have enrichened her capacities on many levels.

Carol is married to Jim Spencer, also a healer and an avid fisherman, and has raised a son here on Salt Spring.The Spencer's are very proud of their First Nations heritage (the Scottish/Finnish sides are more down played) and shamanic traditions have been known to be incorporated into services along with the traditions of other cultures. The services are often spontaneous, no two services are alike. Both Jim and Carol are very giving, caring  people and we are fortunate to have them as a spiritual resource and as facilitators for so many spiritual events in our community here on Salt Spring.
