In August 1995 Adrian was introduced to the Metaphysical side of life. He started to go to a Spiritualist Church and doing meditations. Some of his friends asked him questions that he felt inept to answer about Spiritualism. He found that he was not the only one who had difficulty answering questions on the subject. Adrian knew that he was one of many, searching for answers. The majority of 'new comers' needed these answers in layman's terms. As a result the White Light Spiritual Magazine was launched in May 1997, based on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. With informative articles describing various people, modalities, workshops etc. there will always be something for everyone in the Whitelight Magazine.
