Many people have never heard of Spiritualism. Exactly what is it?
Spiritualism is a religion rooted in the history of civilization since before the Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians, and Greco-Roman society. Attempts to communicate with spirit have been recorded since early times whether through dreams or priestesses or various forms of divination. Modern Spiritualism was developed in the middle of the 19th century and spread rapidly following the Civil War into the 20th century. Over the years, Spiritualism has weathered the storms of history, but remains a movement that is now becoming more evident as the public opens its minds and hearts to the presence of others around us who are not in human form.
The Spiritualist Living Center is a member of the National Spiritualist Association of Churches, the oldest and largest of the Spiritualist Associations in America. We define Spiritualism as a Science, a Philosophy, and as a Religion. A Spiritualist is one who believes, as the basis of his or her religion, in the communication between this and the Spirit World by means of mediumship and who endeavors to mold his or her character and conduct in accordance with the highest teachings derived from such communication. As such, mediumship, healing, and the phenomena of Spiritualism, including clairvoyance, trance work, automatic writing, and any other manifestation proving the continuity of life are part of Spiritualism as are the commitment and dedication to love, compassion, and service seen in the lives of our members. –Rev. Dr. Norma J. Turner, NST
