Type :  


James Van Praagh is a self-proclaimed medium who has written several books on spirituality and spirit communication.


 early life and career
Van Praagh was born in Bayside, New York and is the youngest of four children. Raised Roman Catholic he attended seminary at the age of 14; however, he has described himself as experiencing spiritual phenomena from a young age that eventually drew him away from conventional religious practice and into Spiritualism.

He graduated from San Francisco State University, majoring in Broadcasting and Communications, and subsequently moved to Los Angeles. It was there that he first discovered a direct interest in metaphysics and began working as a medium following a prediction by another medium who suggested it was his destiny.

Van Praagh built his early career performing private readings for clients by communicating with the spirits of their dearly departed, and quickly graduated to wider audiences through the sale and distribution of a series of audiotapes, books, and eventually the television appearances that gave him wide national exposure.

On the Larry King Live episode on May 26, 2009, it was revealed that Van Praagh was in a same-sex marriage. He is openly gay and has been with his partner since 1995.
