What Others Are Saying About Our Tour:
Thanks to you and Wendy for a great evening we really enjoyed your show, I'm the mad English lady at the back during your Tampa show. My friend Lisa and I have seen many shows from Silvia Brown, Lisa Williams and some others. We both found your smaller, more intimate show, great! Diane, M
We attended last night's show and were awed by the energy! Love never dies! Tracey, D
Another amazing night of messages for loved ones! Again you wow the crowd with your gift....know everyone had a night they will never forget. The smaller crowd does make it more intimate. My friend and her mom enjoyed your St. Petersburg appearance. Light and love to you Blair. Keep on doing what you do best. Hope you come back to Michigan in 2017. Janet, W
I was at one the Evening of Spirit shows, and although I didn't get a reading, one of my closest friends walked out with a feeling of peace because Blair confirmed something for her. One of her sisters took her own life and she now knows that her sister is in a good place. Thank you Blair, we all walked away with something tonight. Jennifer, J
"I have always been intrigued with Mediums and their incredible gift to connect with the dead. I am an avid Long Island Medium fan and after seeing an ad for Blair on Facebook, my husband an I attended a group reading in Scottsdale. We both went into the experience with and open heart and mind. I was beyond thrilled when my dad came through. Blair shared things with us that nobody could have known. I was so touched and felt such peace knowing my dad was happy and no longer in pain. I immediately knew Blair was the real deal and knew he had an incredible gift. He is truly amazing and could not be a more true, kind, and caring person. He has a true gift and we are blessed to have him share it with us. Blair is a straight shooter and I am one of his biggest fans. I truly believe in him and his incredible gift of connecting with those who have passed. Thank you Blair!" Kristine M.
Even though I didn't get a reading personally I had a wonderful time! Awesome connections! Very powerful! And I absolutely loved that you took the time afterwards to chat with everybody who stayed for a little bit. It was very nice meeting you and your lovely wife Wendy!! Angelieke - Ontario, Canada
Thank You Blair! I was with the my sister in law when you made the connection with her Uncle that took his own life. His actions left many questions. I'm so happy he came through to help provide a sense of closure for his family. Light & Love to you Heather R
"This may seem funny to some but I had never heard of Blair Robertson, when a friend told me she was going to see him I thought this may be fun. I have always had an open mind but was still a little skeptical but after this I got some real answers to some questions that have plagued me in the past. As I did not get a personal reading as hoped for my friend and others did. What was revealed was real and emotional, I walked away with inspiration and hope and a very open mind. I would love to go see him again sometime it was a wonderful experience." Kim M. Pueblo, CO.
"Even though I wasn't fortunate enough to receive a reading (I'm convinced my loved ones were too busy partying on the other side!), the people who did get messages were blown away by the accuracy they received from Blair! I loved the intimate setting too! I had gone to see Sylvia Browne before & there were 500 people in the auditorium! Her readings were inaccurate most of the time as well! I was never going to go to a psychic/medium ever again, but felt drawn to Blair for some reason! I hope to see him again & perhaps hear a message I am so desperate for!" Karen R., San Diego, CA
"I went to The Long Island Medium event just a few weeks before and I enjoyed seeing Blair just as much if not more. I appreciated his openness to the audience and allowing us to ask questions. Thanks Blair for a wonderful evening!" Kristen O.
Brought my husband and we enjoyed our evening. I was glad to see him laughing . My second time going won't be my last . He felt our daughter rub his cheek. She was murdered 2 years ago with her boyfriend leaving her 3 year old behind. We know our daughter is always around, we get signs, and for that we are so grateful. Knowing this really helps to get through her being gone. Blair you and Wendy are wonderful in what you do. People get to see there really are connections and love never , never dies . Hope you come back next year . Thx - Victoria L.
"OMG...Blair was so awesome in Palm Springs!!! So funny and entertaining!! My timid little granny was the first of a room full of spirit to come thru!!! He told us personal things that happen in my granny's room btwn her, my mom n myself just prior to her passing!!Awesome validation that love definitely lives on!! Blair you and what you do are just a blessing!! LaDel R.
"My daughter and i enjoyed the evening. We have never attended a small venue with a Psychic/Medium, and were quite impressed with it all. Thank you Blair Robertson!" Hedy F.
"I was at the Palm Springs Hyatt... the veteran with the spit-shined boots.I initially went as a favor to my wife. A lifelong skeptic, I always believed that death was not the end, I just didn't believe guys like you could build that bridge - or "open that window" to the other side as you said. I do now. I was not looking for comfort, only confirmation. During my reading, that is exactly what I got. What a tremendous gift." Jayme E.
"Very informative and emotional. Blair has a combination of humor and compassion for his audience. A great evening, I would recommend to all!" Sandra S.
"It really was an incredible night. My daughters boyfriend who passed away a year ago came through and the accuracy and details were amazing. It was very emotional and something that I will not soon forget." Christy K.
"Beautiful experience! I was blessed enough to have some of my loved ones come through, and it was wonderful. While I was extremely grateful, I was even more touched by the readings some of the others received. It was amazing to see peace and closure happen in front of one's eyes. Amazing night, amazing man, will absolutely go again!" Melissa B.
"Blair shares his ability to bring messages from loved ones who have passed on with brilliant clarity, compassion, and yes, wit. I received a reading: my father came through with spot on validations. I will carry my reading for a life time. Blair's explanations of spirit guides answered so many questions. It was an evening of laughter, tears, and love. We were all entranced. Thank you." Marylou P.
"I am amazed at the reading I had with Blair! My great uncle Merle (whom I had only met 4 times - and I'm 56) came forward to give me white roses and so much love. It is truly amazing that we are all connected with love. The added bonus I have felt is ( and thank you Blair!) is a peace deep within my soul - and that is truly priceless." Wendy V.
"I saw your ad in our local paper and called my friend in Apache Junction to come up and go to your show with me. We have both been to many psychic/medium shows and also have had many one on one readings. We didn't get a reading last night, but we really enjoyed the readings that did come through. I found myself tearing up with emotions for the others. Next time we get together down in the valley, we'd each like to see you one on one. Thank you for coming to Wickenburg and hope you come here again!" Colena B.
"What fun we had last night! The first message Blair gave me was truly a surprise visit from someone who was such a special person. The second message, from Santa Claus, was really the best...we are pretty sure that was my Mother saying 'hello'. If you have the chance, go see Blair. Thanks Blair!!" Candice A.
"Blair, it was a great pleasure meeting you and Wendy , last evening in Scottsdale. I was so thankful to hear from my brother , who passed a few years ago , and was surprised he was with our Dad. I could listen to you for hours on end , as I have been searching for a psychic , medium for some time . I have some sensing , and feel a lot of stuff , but I do need a good reading from someone in the know. Thank you so much for being "you "; the evening passed too quickly." BJ. W.
"Great experience. He hit the nail on the head with the answer to my question. Will definitely attend another session when he is in the area. I highly recommend to anyone to go to one of his sessions, it is fun and informative." Sherry S.
"I have already told some friends about Blair Robertson's presentation. It was quick and eventful evening. I would highly recommend him to others." Deborah T.
"My husband and I attended Mr. Robertson's event in Green Valley and wouldn't you know it, my father-in-law came through with a very meaningful message for my husband. My husband came as a skeptic, but left with a very different attitude. Can't wait for Blair to return in the fall!! I;m bringing everyone I know!!!" Angela R"This was my first ever event. I truly believe that our loved ones remain with us in spirit even after they have left our side. You reinforced that belief and thank you for that. You are an incredible spokesperson for the departed. I was in awe of the readings that you did give. It is an affirmation of how we continue to live on. Thank you." Adriana M"...by the way, you said the young male that drowned seemed to be standing around confused. I wanted to say he was probably stunned to find himself crossed over so unexpectedly and very recently. That was cool. I will tell all my friends and family to watch for your appearances and I hope to see you in Tucson again. You are a blessed man and I appreciate your sharing of your wonderful gift. And I met your wife who was a very delightful gal. Lucky you and lucky her!" Corrine S. "Even tho' I wasn't read - I still thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It was amazing to listen to others being read and know in my heart they were meant to receive the messages that come across. Martha T. "I do want to add .. I was so full of energy when I got home .. I couldn't sleep for hours..." Laura M. "We Really enjoyed the Event this week ! I had done some Google-ing , and we were very Excited to Attend! You say it's not a Show,what you do...but you are Very Entertaining!! Thanks for coming to Tucson . we would Love to see you Again ! P.S. Your Wife is Delightful. Thanks Again." Cyndie H. "It is very entertaining and well worth the money, even without a reading. Will plan to attend when he's in town again!" Christi J. "(Blair)is absolutely amazing! He is funny and real! My sister and I did not get a reading, but we enjoyed the evening so much. There were some wonderful messages for sure! It's great how he breaks it up into segments and how he explains certain things as he's delivering messages. Thank you, Blair and Wendy!" Ana R. "Last night was my first psychic event and experience. My sister just passed away on June 3rd and although I did not get a reading I feel I have a better understanding of why she didn't come through. Blair clearly explained how there are so many spirits trying to speak at the same time, more than there were actually people in the room. Thank you, it was an enlightening experience." Jill J. " I had a wonderful time. Blair is very warm and funny and I felt like I was sitting in my best friends living room. I did not get my own reading but I was very moved by what others experienced. I came away from the evening feeling very peaceful. Looking forward to more events with Blair." Carolyn K."I really enjoyed your entertaining style of presenting, humility, and excellent manner of interacting with people from all walks of life. I sure love the small, intimate gatherings you do. Went to one world famous medium, with a TV show, and the audience was so large, the time short, it was frustrating. So many others were heart-broken, still suffering from grief. Keep up your great work! Your partner Wendy is such a love & a doll." Elaine M."I think that your prices were appropriate and I liked that the group size was appropriate not too large so you did not feel like you were over crowded but very comfortable. Great presentation flow and understanding of how the medium process works. Even though no one came thru for me, I know my loved ones are around me every day, sometimes even in a funny way." Mary V. "We had some much fun! We weren't sure what to expect, but we had the pleasure of connecting with our dad, and he had alshymers for many years before he died, so we were never sure if he knew we were there to see him often, it was comforting to know that he did know and thanked us for all we did for him. It is comforting to know he is in a better place, with those we love also..if you are a doubter that Blair really does hear your loved ones, then don't be . There was no way that he could have known that my sister was with our dad when he died and that she was holding his Right hand with Her left hand.. In fact I did not even know that, only her and our dad would have been the only ones who could have know that...." Debbie S."Thank you so much for coming to Tucson. The evening was a lot of fun and very inspiring. Although I did not receive a reading, I felt some other readings had messages for me." Nelda W.
"Blair is by far the BEST medium I have ever attended an event of. I have been hundreds of times to other mediumship events and not once felt the connection like there was last night in the room with Blair. Messages that others received were truly appreciated and felt by all of us in attendance. Blair and Wendy, thanks for a fantastic evening. I hope you are in the area again soon and you can definitely count me in!! " Bonnie F.
"I'd seen ads for Blair Robertson but I'd never heard of him, so I checked him out on Facebook, and I was intrigued. It seemed that all his 'event's were on weekdays which didn't help me. This time I happened to be on holidays the week he was coming to St.Catherines so I impulsively bought tickets for my husband and I. I'm so glad I did. We certainly enjoyed it and I really liked the idea of the small group. I have been to many other medium events with famous psychics such as Sylvia Browne, John Edwards, Theresa Caputo. Over a thousand people attend those events and its very impersonal. You need binoculars to see the medium....lol. But Blair is right there, and funny! What a sense of humor. We really enjoyed ourselves even though we didn't have a loved one come with a message for us, we felt we still got a message through another's reading." Thanks. Debbie, M.
"I enjoyed my experience at your event in St. John's. Before going I thought being read would be the highlight of the night. After attending and hearing some of the connections that were made I am not sure I could have been any more moved if I had been read myself. Truly an amazing experience. I also purchased a pendulum...this is an amzing tool and the best purchase I have made in a long time. Thanks for being you and bringing joy to the lives of everyone who experiences you." John S., St.John's Newfoundland

Who we are: We are two succesful entrepeneaurs looking to make a difference in peoples lives utilizing the wisdom and tools we used to ultimately prevail through some very trying times in both our personal and professional lives. We both truly believe that this is our true purpose in life. Our hope is that by offereing this once in a life time opputunity for free to the public, that those selected will agree that the value received from our services was so immense, they felt compelled to seek out referrals for us. In other words, we want to make our services so impactful and valuable that our clients would feel guilty to keep us to themselves.

What to expect if selected: You can expect that we will systematically navigate through your life’s daily behaviors and actions looking for areas in need of clarity, improvement or upgrades. And once we find those areas we will strategize together to switch them out with new ones. These new behaviors and actions will be implemented on purpose and all with a specific result in mind. A result that you want to achieve such as health, money, happiness, or even love. Maybe it's more of a thought process or belief system you want to change. Maybe its an addiction you want to overcome or a family member in crisis. Whatever the situation is, the skills, knowledge and insight you gain, will give you the self-confidence and know-how to bring about the best outcome for you.

Core Advocacy Training Structure:

Participants will first attend the in-person intensive which will be three full days of knowledge building and experiential training.
Online Training (12 hours)
Participants will also complete the online training course. The online course has been condensed and focused down to 12-hours to build all-around competency in domestic violence related knowledge. (Instructions to access to online training will be provided to all registrants in their confirmation email.)
Follow-Up Workshop (2-3 weeks after initial session)
Participants will attend a mandatory follow-up workshop to complete their 40-hour training. This advanced workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to further develop the skills that they learned in the initial in-person intensive. The focus will be on teaching advocacy skills that promote engagement and self determination. The skill development portion will occur in a supportive environment with demonstrations and individualized feedback.
