Survival Research Institute of Canada

There is a Survival Research Institute of Canada (SRIC) in Winnipeg that is giving a free talk on table levitation phenomena. Who wouldn’t go to this? For F-R-E-E?!  The SRIC’s mission is “to investigate whether some part of human consciousness or personality survives physical death and whether that surviving “spirit” is able to communicate with the living.”

They seem to be a good resource of all things spiritualist if you’re in Canada.  Plus they have a library and books that you can buy that you prolly can’t find anywhere else. I have totally forgone the use of the word “probably” for prolly and I’m ok with it.
I like that they use terms like “bodily death”.

They also just did a lecture about ectoplasm that is the same lecture that’s been done since 1922 which is weird. The ectoplasm presentation accompanies Irish artist Susan MacWilliam‘s exhibit of her “Flammarion” installation based upon the 10 June 1931 ectoplasm photographed by Dr. T.G. Hamilton. She researched at the T. G. Hamilton archives at the University of Manitoba, which has digitized over 700 images and 1300 notes from seances. Want to watch hours of video about T. G. Hamilton and the work he did around voice mediumship, wax fingerprints, and ectoplasmic phenomena? Here are seven videos.

Here MacWilliam is talking about her work at the Venice Biennale.

Also, did you happen to see Helen Duncan in that article? She was the last person to be imprisoned under the British Witchcraft Act in 1944. She was a Scottish spiritualist.

The whole thing is just so thrilling. Susan MacWilliam wins artist of the century! Even if just for effort and intrigue.
