What is Spiritualism...


​UBSC recognizes the Seven Principles of Spiritualism as presented through the mediumship of Emma Hardinge Britten (1823--1899) in a message from the spirit of social activist Robert Owen (1771--1858). 

  1. The fatherhood of God

  2. The brotherhood of man

  3. Communion of spirits and the ministry of angels

  4. The continuous existence of the human soul

  5. Personal responsibility

  6. Compensation and retribution for all the good and evil deeds done on earth

  7. Eternal progress open to every (human) soul


Spiritualism is a philosophy that supports a belief in a greater power called God or the Universal Consciousness.  Spiritualists believe that we, as souls, continue after the death of the physical body, and that our souls return to our true home in the spirit world, often called the afterlife.  Spiritualism is unique in believing that survival after death is provable through mediumship between the spirit and material worlds. 


Mediums are individuals who can bridge the gap between the spirit and the material worlds, bringing messages and impressions from the Other Side to the physical plane, bringing messages of love, and encouragement.


Healing is a sharing of the universal power of love.  The services, events, and workshops at UBSC allow you to learn about the communication between the spirit and material planes, expanding your horizons and challenging (or changing) the way in which you view yourself and the world around you.
