Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Tuesday February 25, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting:   Immortal Beings on an Evolutionary Pathway, a Spiritist View“ presented by Sheila Van Leyen.

Spiritism is, at once, a science, a philosophy, and a religion.  The teachings, concepts, and principles of all three are interdependently woven into this doctrine of consolation, clarification, and inspiration.

The science of Spiritism studies the existence and nature of spirits, which are nothing more than the immortal souls of men, created by God.

The philosophy, which was derived from a serious study of information received in communications with discarnate spirits, deals with the details of spirit life and the journey of evolution through the process of reincarnation. A natural consequence of that philosophy is the understanding of the role we play in our own spiritual evolution, which is ultimately achieved through the efforts we make to grow, both morally and intellectually.

The religious aspect stems from the moral ties between ourselves, and others, and the direction that Spiritism leads us, toward God, our creator, by helping us to understand life and by teaching us, ultimately, how to develop the ability to love, in the greatest sense of the word.

Spiritism helps us to understand the natural laws that govern that process of evolution. From a moral perspective, we follow the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ, as our model and guide.

In the first part of the talk Sheila will define some fundamentals of Spiritism such as: God, Matter, Spirit, and Life’s purpose.  In the second part we’ll watch an explanatory video on the physiological aspects of mediumship.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  A $5 donation is suggested.
