"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."

ASCS Conference 2018

We, at the Academy, are happy to announce our focus on formulating plans for the growth and expansion of the ASCS.  We are currently seeking contributions (both monetary and in-kind) to help enhance this beneficial and valuable organization. Included in our expansion efforts, we have been busy in the planning of our annual conference, which, this year, is in conjunction with the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship of North Carolina. This year’s conference will be held at Unity of the Triangle in Raleigh, NC and will run from Thursday evening, October 4 to Saturday evening, October 6, 2018. We are currently arranging both workshops and lectures based on the title theme “ASPECTS OF CONSCIOUSNESS”.  As in previous years, we have sought to offer a comprehensive representation of the subject matter, so to fulfil this intent, a “CALL FOR PAPERS” button is located on this page to the right to fill the remaining speaker/workshop slots.  Stay tuned for updated conference details via this site, social media and  targeted emails as well as announcements made in the ASCS published materials that are available to  Academy members.

  Featured Biography

Dr. George T. Dexter
Dubious of the many stories he had heard about mediumship phenomena, Dexter decided to investigate for homself. Not only did he witness genuine mediumship, but he became a medium himself. Collaborating with Judge John Edmonds of the New York State Supreme Court, Dexter co-authored Spiritualism, volumes I and II. read more

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. We 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 us if you desire elaboration or wish to discuss your own experience. All the volunteers who make up the Academy are glad you stopped by and hope you find this site informative and our work gratifying.
