“This is a little of what I’ve learned through talking to Spiritualists, researching the religion, looking at it through art, and practicing mediumship and healing. I’m also interested in the religion and its relationship with photography–both grew up around the same time (March 31, 1848 is the official anniversary of Modern Spiritualism), and photography is recognized as officially starting on January 7, 1839.
It feels good to be connected to a history of a religion that has been feminist and anti-racist from the start. It’s definitely helped me through weird times in my life, taught me to be more grateful, and to trust myself and not let myself doubt the religion, myself, my art. This is a huge topic, and I’ve obviously only covered some of what interests me about the religion, and I include the frauds with the genuine believers and practitioners, but that’s all of what goes into a history.” from the introduction to We Believe in Infinite Intelligence: A 21c Guide to Spiritualism
I've been engaged with the practice of Spiritualism for 16 years and poured it into this modern-day primer on Spiritualism--the religion of talking to spirits and healing--with interviews with Spiritualists, a little about my experience with it, and Riso-printed spirit photos.
