The Course in the History of Modern Spiritualism, based on Sir Author Conan Doyle's two volume book "History of Modern Spiritualism". The course give an in- depth narrative which covers in a way the whole history of the Spiritualistic movement. It provides a clear view of what seemed to be important episodes in the modern spiritual development of the human race. These included the chapters on Swedenborg, on Irving, on A. J. Davis, on the Hydesville incident, on the history of the Fox sisters, on the Eddys and on the life of D. D. Home and many many more gifted mediums and the scientists who investigated them.

Upon completion of the Educational Course in Modern Spiritualism, the student may wish to start the Educational Course in Ministry which leads to ordination as a Spiritualist minister, if desired.

Being ordained will allow the minister to apply for a certificate from there state/provincial government, and upon receipt, conduct wedding services______________________________
