The Spiritist Society Towards the Light is a nonprofit educational organization that aims to disseminate the awareness and practice of Spiritist Ideas in America. These Ideas provide a wonderful tool for supporting individuals to achieve spiritual enlightenment through spiritual education, physical and mental healing and mainly the practice of Love in Action (Charity).
Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail – a French thinker and educator whose pen name was Allan Kardec – compiled and systematized Spiritist teachings through the publication of several books between 1857 and 1868. Professor Rivail’s books bring to us a set of ideas that embrace the spiritual nature of human beings. To learn more about these books, check our section “Basic Spiritist Books”.
In Spiritism there is no organized priesthood or formal hierarchy. Spiritism teaches us that we are all students in this immense school we call planet Earth. With that in mind, we welcome you to join us and learn how we may strengthen our spiritual side together through the practice of Love in Action (Charity) and all the virtues that come along with it, like tolerance and compassion.
It is not enough to acquire ideas and abilities it is necessary to be responsible. It is not right that we possess only the information arising from thought. We must also have the light that arises from love.
