A Directory of Spiritist Groups in the English-speaking World

Are you looking for a Spiritist group near you, or do you know someone searching for one?
Meet our global directory of Spiritist groups in the English-speaking world: SpiritistGroups.Org.
SpiritistGroups.Org - A List of Spiritist Groups in the World
We at The Spiritist Institute are happy to bring you a new resource: a directory of Spiritist groups in English-speaking countries. Our volunteers have scoured the internet to find information on Spiritist groups throughout the world to create a website that answers a question we often hear: is there a Spiritist group in .....?

SpiritistGroups.Org can be the place that has that answer for you. When you visit the website, it detects where you are and offers the groups closest to you. If you want to search for groups in a different area, you can use the drop-down menu in the top left corner to choose a specific city. And for those who like maps, you can also use the "Global Map" link on the top menu to see different maps of all known groups.

When you find that group you are looking for, a simple click gets you to their contact information, languages spoken, activities, social media links, and more. You can even leave a review for a group you attend, and if you represent a group you can claim the listing and update it yourself!

We have done our best to find accurate data, but this is a work in progress that relies on "crowdsourcing" -- which means we can always use help! If you find something that needs to be corrected, updated, or added, reach out to us!

Don't forget to bookmark it and happy searching!


Kardec and The Spirits

(A Graphic Novel)

For something slightly different (but still edifying!) this month, how about a graphic novel that features the most important events and characters that marked the beginning of Spiritism in Paris in the 19th century? Check out Kardec And The Spirits by Guillermo Luis.


Congratulations to Teresa from the USA who won last month's trivia contest and a copy of Paul and Stephen by answering that "Damascus" was the city Saul was headed to when Christ appeared to him. Will you be this month's trivia winner?

What was the full name of the man who came to be known as Allan Kardec?

Hint: Episode 36 of Spiritist Conversations ("Who Was Allan Kardec?") may or may not have the answer. Ok, it definitely does...
