What is Spiritualism?

Spiritualism is the belief that all life is created from, and connected to, one Divine Source. Some may know this Divine Source simply as Spirit, the Creator Energy or God.

As Spiritualists, we believe that upon physical death our souls continue to live and evolve in the Spirit world. We believe that we can communicate and commune with our loved ones in the afterlife through the link of Love for the purposes of healing and personal development.

Spirit communication is not unique to Spiritualism. It has existed since human beings first walked on Earth and will continue to exist long after our own physical lives have ended—such is our innate desire to continuously strive for a deeper and more personal relationship to the Divine.

Spiritualism is a science, a philosophy and a religion …

As Spiritualists we celebrate Eternal Life and recognize that our true nature is eternal and part of the Spiritual whole.

Spiritualism is a science …

We use observation, measurement and experimentation in the areas of clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, automatic writing and trance communication as proof of the manifestation of Spirit presence. In the 21st century the scientific approach includes parapsychology—the psychology of psychic phenomena.

Spiritualism is a philosophy …

It is based on ideas about how the Natural world and Spirit world operate. It studies the laws of Nature, both seen and unseen, and integrates the wisdom from the past with present-day knowledge.

Spiritualism is a religion …

We strive to understand and to comply with the physical, mental and spiritual laws of Nature, which are the natural laws of the Universe.
