If you are firmly convinced that you have never heard of it, then you are wrong. You certainly know at least one of the movies we listed. Because you wanted to understand the supernatural and the unexplainable.

Everyone questioned their existence once. What’s the meaning of life? Who am I? Why was I born? Where do I come from? What happens to me when I die? Scientists, philosophers, movie makers and also spiritism deal with these kinds of questions. But what exactly is spiritism?

Spiritism is a doctrine founded by Allan Kardec, a French teacher in Paris in the 19th century. The doctrine consists of philosophical, scientific and religious principles.

Spiritism represents the depiction of life and answers questions such as: “Where do I come from”, “What am I doing in this world?”, Where do I go when I die?”. Every doctrine that represents their own conception of the world is a philosophy.

Nothing is supernatural. All phenomena can be explained scientifically. With the aid of scientific criteria, spiritism examines psychic phenomena that deal with ghosts.

As a religion, spiritism pursues the moral change of people based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. Simplicity, purity and love are the foundation. Spiritism differs from other religions because it doesn’t need ceremonies, sacraments, rituals, iconolatry, candles, costumes, priests or external signs.

The basic principle of spiritism is concerned the existence of spirits and their survival after death; the reincarnation; the law of cause and effect; growth; the development of spirits and the connection between the physical and spiritual world.
