The Mighty Dead of Spiritualism and Their Impact on Modern Spirit Communication
Time & Location
Aug 13, 2021, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
About the event
The influence of the Spiritualist movement can still be felt in modern occultism. Their beliefs in the spirit world and focus on proving the continuation of life after death through mediumship have lent themselves to witchcraft traditions, and their technologies for communication via mental, trance, and physical mediums remain relevant in today’s eclectic world of modern magical practices. This class will cover the history and lore of evidential and trance mediums and their experiences with spirit work, as well as an exploration of the use of Spiritualist processes and connections to further one’s own magical development. Danielle will also share her personal experiences from communing with the Mighty Dead of Spiritualism for work in trance, healing, mediumship, and magic.
