Spiritualism means many things to many people; to some it is a religion, to some a philosophy and way of life, to some it is evidence of life after death though mediumship, to some the law of cause and effect and to others it is the life-long study and attainment of spiritual wisdom.
Whatever Spiritualism may come to mean to you as an individual, it is fundamentally a journey of discovery, unfolding one’s own spirituality for the betterment of self and to benefit all with whom we share life.
Spiritualist philosophy contains neither dogma nor creed, it does not preach to convert, it is discussed and offers evidence of survival. The philosophy is based on he Seven Principles, which are not rules to be followed by rather to encourage one to think about one’s attitude to life. Click onto Seven Principles link.
What is now known as Modern Spiritualism began in 1848 in Hydesville USA when communication was established between the Fox sisters and spirit. The news of this spread rapidly throughout America, eventually reaching Europe including Britain.
Today, the largest Spiritualist organisation is the Spiritualist National Union based in the UK, and it is recognised by H M Government as a legally established body for Spiritualism.
For many people Spiritualism has become more than a religion, it has become a way-of-life.
