The Mediums' Book - A Milestone in Spirituality

Celebrating 161 years on January 15th, The Mediums' Book is the first comprehensive treatise on spirit communication in history.

The second book in the Spiritist Codification, The Mediums' Book dives into the nature and processes of mediumship, the ability to act as an intermediary between the physical and spiritual realms, through a rational and structured approach.
The Mediums' Book is the book to read for those wishing to understand how mediumship happens -- and how to practice it safely.

You can download a free PDF version or find where to buy a paper or digital copy here.

Genesis - Re-evaluating Miracles and Predictions

Genesis, the final book of the Spiritist Codification, takes readers back to a re-evaluation of the genesis story, miracles, and predictions contained in the Bible through a rational spiritual lens built over the previous four books of the Spiritist Codification.

Genesis is a rich read for those wishing to build a deeper understanding of the spiritual science underpinning many of the events in the Bible.

Initiation Into Spiritism - An Online Course

Initiation into Spiritism is a course by the United States Spiritist Federation meant for all audiences regardless of previous knowledge of Spiritism or Spirituality since it deals with several contemporary topics with clarity and depth.

A new campaign for translating a series of books pyschographed by the spirit Joanna de Ângelis into English has begun!

Now a group of organizations is working together to bring these powerful works to the English language through highly qualified professional translators -- and you can help!
