ABOUT THE SPIRITUALIST MOVEMENT
What is Spiritualism?
Spiritualism means many things to many people. It can be a science, a philosophy and a religion. The science is the evidence of life after death, along with the natural laws of cause and effect. The Philisophy is that you can make it a life-long study to attain spiritual wisdom. The Religion is to live by the seven principles and believe in them regardless of any evidence.
Whatever Spiritualism means to you, it’s fundamentally a journey of unfolding your own spirituality with the aim of bringing about a transformation of your spiritual qualities, morals and ethics to grow and improve yourself.
We aim to provide help and support (including literature and educational opportunities) for anyone who is interested to study Spiritualism and consider its implications in all matters of the spirit here as well as the hereafter.
