"History shows that every intelligent man who has gone into this investigation, if he gave it adequate examination at all, has come out believing in spirits; this circumstance places the burden of proof on the shoulders of the skeptic."|

Welcome to our Home Page
Our mission is to discern, develop and disseminate knowledge of how paranormal phenomena may relate to and enhance the development of the human spirit.
Library additions last month
The Academy's Garland Memorial Library added
one document in April.
View of Mediums: This is the testimony of the
spirit of a woman who, prior to her physical demise, was a
practicing Spiritualist. It describes her observations of a
séance from the other side. If you have ever desired
to visit a medium or aspired to be one, this is MUST READING.
The Strangers Were Lovers
Since early childhood, a woman is haunted by vivid yet inexplicable visions of being another girl. As an adult, she displays accurate knowledge of the geography and history of a town she has never before visited. This is a most special case because her revelations bring about a joint hypnosis session with a man who recalls being the girl's fiancé. ♦ For more proof of an afterlife, see
aisles E1 through E6 in
room of the Garland Memorial Library
Among the spirits
allegedly communicating with Kardec via mediums were John the Evangelist, St. Augustine, St. Vincent De Paul, Socrates, Plato, Franklin, and Swedenborg.
They answered questions on every conceivable
subject, including God, pantheism, biblical accounts of creation, reincarnation, spirit
influence, war, capital punishment, slavery, free
will, suicide, and fear of death.

aisle L2 and aisle L3 in the Legacy room of the Garland Memorial Library
Tom and Lisa Butler
“We know that people physically die and that their aware Self continues in some other aspect of reality. Further, we know that they want to, and are able to, initiate communication with those of us still in the flesh, by way of our technology.” ♦ For other interviews of important persons in the development of evidence for an afterlife, see

Caps, Shirts, Bags, Mugs and other
items to help spread the word
Our volunteer members have designed a variety of items that will
promote interest in the Academy, demonstrate your committment,
and start conversations with those you meet. All profits from
sales go to support ASCS projects. Look good while doing good!
New to Spiritual Experiences?
|One reason, among many, that prompts people to visit this website is that they are seeking explanations or reassurance concerning a puzzling occurrence in their life. I have put together a list of some of the most common — a lot more common than you might think — events that can trigger a shift in the way that one’s consciousness relates to one’s spiritual essence. You may
view this list here, and are welcome to contact me if you desire elaboration or wish to discuss your own experience. In the meantime, I’d like to say that I and all the other volunteers who make up the Academy are glad you stopped by and hope you find this site informative and our work gratifying. |
