    Haunted Britain: Spiritualism, Psychical Research And The Great War With Kyle Falcon

    Haunted Britain: Spiritualism, Psychical Research And The Great War With Kyle Falcon

    The Great War haunted the British Empire. Shell shocked soldiers relived the war’s trauma through waking nightmares consisting of mutilated and grotesque figures. Modernist writers released memoirs condemning the war as a profane and disenchanting experience. Yet British and Dominion soldiers and their families also read prophecies about the coming new millennium, experimented with séances, and claimed to see the ghosts of their loved ones in dreams and in photographs. On the battlefields, they had premonitions and attributed their survival to angelic, psychic, or spiritual forces. For many, the war was an enchanting experience that offered proof of another world and the transcendental properties of the mind. Between 1914 and 1939, an array of ghosts lived in the minds of British subjects as they navigated the shocking toll that death in modern war exerted in their communities.

    My Special Guest Is Kyle Falcon

    Kyle Falcon is a historian specialising in the British Empire during the First World War. He received his MA and PhD from Wilfrid Laurier University. His doctoral research focused on British spiritualism and psychical research in the Great War. He is the author of 'Haunted Britain: Spiritualism, Psychical Research and the Great War.' Kyle is based in Ontario, Canada.

    In this episode, you will be able to:

    1. Explore the experiences and trauma and grief on a collective nation.

    2. Explore the intersection of Spiritualism and Science during the Great War .

    3. Discover some of the psychical experiences reported and explored during this period.

    Spirit-Beings, Ghosts and the Afterlife With Matt Arnold

    Spirit-Beings, Ghosts and the Afterlife With Matt Arnold

    Delve into the enigmatic depths of biblical revelation with Matthew D. Arnold's groundbreaking work, "The Invisible Dimension: Spirit-Beings, Ghosts, and the Afterlife," a captivating exploration published by Anamchara Books. Departing from conventional readings, Arnold beckons readers to reexamine the sacred text, urging a profound engagement with the celestial realms and their inhabitants as depicted by biblical writers.

    Kenneth McIntosh, author of "Water from an Ancient Well," praises Arnold's approach, applauding its departure from contemporary biases. Instead of imposing 21st-century lenses, "The Invisible Dimension" immerses readers in the intricate contexts of biblical authors, unravelling the rich tapestry of their cultural, historical, and theological landscapes.

    At its core, "The Invisible Dimension" ventures into the spectral domain, unravelling the mystique surrounding spirit-beings in biblical lore. From celestial angels to watchers, Arnold meticulously dissects their roles, alongside probing the origins of malevolent entities and the spectral manifestations of departed souls.

    Prepare to rediscover the veiled mysteries concealed within the sacred text, as "The Invisible Dimension" beckons readers into a realm where spirits, ghosts, and the afterlife intertwine with the fabric of biblical narrative.

    My Special Guest Is Matt Arnold

    Matt Arnold is the author of The Invisible Dimension: Spirit-Beings, the Afterlife, and Ghosts, a book which explores how the writers of the Bible understood the supernatural realms and their inhabitants using the various contexts in which they found themselves. He is also the editor of The Christian Parapsychologist Journal, a Churches Fellowship for Psychical and Spiritual Studies publication. He is also a member of the Alistair Hardy Trust, the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena, and The Ghost Club (1862). His popular website, https://GhostsGhoulsAndGod.co.uk, features many studies on the paranormal in the Bible, which seek to educate rather than frighten visitors.



    In this episode, you will be able to:

    1. Explore some of the spirit-beings in the Bible: angels – how did we get the word in our bibles? 

    2. Discover more about the mysterious watchers and what is their role in various places in the Bible? What did the writers understand as the origins of evil spirits, and what were demons (or daimons)?

    3. Explore the evolution of the Afterlife as seen through Biblical texts and more....

    The Guided Hand: Exploring Madge Gill's Mediumistic Art With Vivienne Roberts

    The Guided Hand: Exploring Madge Gill's Mediumistic Art With Vivienne Roberts

    Madge Gill (1882-1961) stands as an enigmatic figure in the world of art, revered as one of the most highly regarded self-taught artists of her time. Her artistic journey is as remarkable as it is mysterious, deeply intertwined with the spiritual realm. Gill's mediumistic art, created under the guidance of her spirit guide Myrninerest, transcends conventional boundaries, offering viewers a glimpse into the ethereal and the unseen.

    My Special Guest Is Vivienne Roberts

    Vivienne Roberts is the curator and archivist at The College of Psychic Studies in London, where she cares for their large collection of spirit inspired art, photographs and artefacts from 1850 to the present day. This unusual archive, along with the College’s specialist esoteric library, has offered Vivienne the opportunity to immerse herself in a wealth of primary material and has been instrumental in helping her curate a series of large exhibitions, including: Encounters with the Spirit World (2016), Art & Spirit: Visions of Wonder (2019), Strange Things Among Us (2021) and Creative Spirits (2022). Vivienne’s art specialism is the history of mediumistic art with particular attention to its women practitioners like Madge Gill. She has established the websites mediumisticart.com, georgianahoughton.com and madgegill.com and has published numerous articles and exhibition catalogue contributions. Vivienne is a member of the Visionary Women Research Group and the British Art Network.



    Madge Gill

    Born in 1882, Madge Gill's early life was marked by tragedy, losing her mother shortly after birth and being raised in an orphanage. Despite the challenges she faced, Gill's innate creativity found expression through art, which she pursued fervently throughout her life. It wasn't until later in adulthood that Gill's mediumistic abilities began to manifest, leading her to channel her artistic endeavours through the influence of Myrninerest.

    Working under Myrninerest's control, Gill's art took on a mystical quality, characterised by intricate patterns, symbolic imagery, and a sense of otherworldly beauty. Her pieces often feature intricate line work, bold contrasts, and a mesmerising depth that captivates viewers and invites contemplation.

    Throughout her life, Gill remained dedicated to her art, creating a vast body of work that continues to inspire and intrigue audiences worldwide.

    In this episode, you will be able to:

    1. Explore what mediumistic art is.

    2. Discover more about Madge Gill and her art.
