Spiritualism: A Legacy Beyond the Veil with Roxie Zwicker

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

Join noted author and historian Roxie Zwicker from New England Curiosities for an exploration of the Spiritualist movement. During Victorian times, many people craved communication with their lost loved ones and some people were willing to go to great lengths to prove that it existed. People came forward with methods and techniques never seen or heard of before that became popular, controversial, and in some cases downright fraudulent. However, the core of spiritualism - the belief that a spirit world does exist and walk amongst us is still alive with many people today.  In this deeply researched presentation, discover the fascinating tools, techniques and accepted methods of spirit communication (such as séances, table tipping, spirit photography, and mediumship) in the 19th century. Roxie will also introduce guests to the famous and infamous people involved in the early movement. This intriguing presentation is sure to have guests talking... and perhaps the spirits as well.
