Spiritualist Society President, Jannet Caywood, hosts a mediumship development circle in her home Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. The circle is for Society members but the public is invited. Meeting days are shown on the Calendar. Please contact the Society for details.
What you can expect
Currently, around fifteen people gather before the door is locked at 6:30 p.m. Sitters are arranged in a circle and the lights are dimmed. Quiet meditative music is plaid in the background.
Jannet opens with an invocation and may introduce a short exercise designed to hone mediumistic ability. This is followed by a period of quiet in which sitters are invited to sense information from loved ones for other sitters.
Rather than a mediumistic reading, this mode of mediumship is described as a “spirit greeting.” The messages are short, and as the sitters gain in ability, increasingly evidential. In NSAC Spiritualism, ethics require that a medium avoid predictive messages that might result in a “self-fulfilling prophesy” such as health or danger messages. As such, sitters can be comfortable knowing that the spirit greetings will be positive and helpful.
It is not necessary to give spirit greetings to others, but the idea of the circle is to develop what is a latent mediumistic ability in all of us, so it is good to take advantage of this very safe situation to learn.
The session ends around 8:00 p.m. Jannet offers a closing benediction, and then there may be five or ten minutes of discussion before people leave for home.
There is no cost for what is really a valuable opportunity for personal development; however, there is always an offering basket on the table and all of the money goes to the Society’s Facility Fund.
