Just a short blog this time. But, I wanted to give a shout-out to some other sources and databases where, if you are interested, you may be able to find more interesting information and research on Spiritualism and its related phenomena.
This has been around for a few years and is compiled by the Society for Psychical Research. The back story to its development is that many of the SPR members got fed up with the constant editing of Wiki pages that often misrepresented the data and accounts of genuine psychical phenomena by a team of guerrilla sceptics. So, when the SPR was bequeathed some money, it was decided to set up their own Wiki, and the PSI Encyclopedia was born.
The site contains articles on a wide range of topics from ESP, psychokinesis, and healing to mediumship and other phenomena - all written to give a balanced perspective.
It's certainly worth a few minutes to explore: https://psi-encyclopedia.spr.ac.uk/.
The other site I often find myself searching through is:
This site consists of a database of many periodicals and out-of-print books digitally preserved, providing a fascinating archive of the history of Spiritualism and New Age thought.
The content of the site has also been archived by Google, which means you can also use the Google search to find articles, letters written to editors of spiritualism newspapers, copies of books discussing psychic development and much more:
Go to google search and type a few keywords relating to what you're looking for followed by iapsop site, like so:
Google will then search the iapsop database for the information you want.
For those who are able to read French, searching for le congres spirite international, spiritisme mondial, results in an archive of ISF literature!
Lastly, many will have heard of the Noah's Ark Society for Physical Mediumship, which ran from 1990 to 2004 and was tasked with promoting the development of physical mediumship. I'm pleased that the Spiritual Truth Foundation has set up a new website, which has archived all the Noah's Ark periodicals and provides free public access.
