Meet the Author
Sylvia Browne is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Other Side and Back and Adventures of a Psychic. A working psychic for nearly fifty years, Ms. Browne has appeared on The Montel Williams Show, Sally Jessy Raphael, Larry King Live, Unsolved Mysteries, CNN, and Entertainment Tonight.
After 47 years giving psychic readings, 27 years of television appearances and 25 years of paranormal research, countless hours of pro bono work with medical, psychiatric and law enforcement agencies across America--and having published a best-selling biography--Browne's psychic skills and spiritual advice continue to be invaluable to the many lives she touches.
Born Sylvia Shoemaker in Kansas City in 1936, Browne was raised predominantly a Catholic, but also absorbed the Jewish, Episcopalian and Lutheran backgrounds of her extended family. At the age of five, she first learned of her psychic powers when she had frightening premonitions of the deaths of her two great-grandmothers just weeks before their passing. With the help of her grandmother, Ada Coil, also an established and respected psychic counselor and healer, Sylvia came to understand her many psychic gifts, which include the ability to communicate with spirits from "The Other Side."
After spending 18 years as a Catholic schoolteacher, Browne decided it was time to dedicate her life to her passion for spiritual knowledge and her desire to help others with their religious and spiritual quests. Readings in her home with 15 to 20 friends soon grew to gatherings of two or three hundred people in churches and town halls. Before long, she was making television appearances on such programs as "The Montel Williams Show" as well as appearing before standing room only audiences of two to three-thousand around the country.
A student of theology and comparative religion, Browne is also an accredited hypnotist. In 1974, she founded the Nirvana Foundation for Psychic Research (now the Sylvia Browne Corporation). In 1986, she established a church called the Society of Novus Spiritus (New Spirit), which has a membership in the thousands. The society's beliefs are based on Catholic theology, but the church rejects such concepts as sin, guilt and retribution.
Today, Sylvia Browne continues to give individual readings as a spiritual advisor in California, and she travels throughout the country helping others understand how the psychic world works in their lives and how they can use their knowledge of "The Other Side" to harness their own self-healing powers.
