William Stainton Moses was a pioneer of the spiritualist movement in the late 19th century and has a deep connection with the College as our first President.
This talk will look at the influence that Moses had through looking at his astrological natal chart drawn up by Demian and his writings including the many different disciplines of mediumship, channelling, automatic writing and clairvoyance that Moses explored.
This is the first time that a precise astrological chart has been published for Stainton Moses, after his time of birth was discovered in the College archives.
In this lecture Demian will ask the question ‘what influence does Stainton Moses have in today’s spiritual society and what can we learn for the future of spiritualism through his past work and enquiring mind?
To compliment this evening’s talk, the College will be displaying for this evening only, some of William Stainton Moses’ notebooks which record the conversations between Moses, his spirit guides and other communicators. The handwriting of Moses and of each guide is distinctive and questions were asked by Moses of his guides on religious matters and guidance was offered to him on how he should further investigate mediumship.
College of Psychic Studies - The College was founded in 1884 by a group of eminent scholars and scientists. Its purpose was to facilitate formal investigation into the psychic and mediumistic phenomena that were such a topic of debate in the Victorian era. With great courage, this group of distinguished people, some notable in science, others from within the ranks of the Anglican clergy, defied the prevailing canons of respectability in order to proclaim to a world of increasing materialism that human personality survives bodily death and that this is capable of demonstration.
