In the Victorian era, practices such as séances, paranormal investigations, fortune telling, and other spiritualist beliefs played a significant role in shaping society and continue to do so today. Through this book, author Steele Alexandra Douris delves into the history of automatic writing, cartomancy, hypnotism, clairvoyance, and other spiritual practices that influenced cultural touchpoints such as Jack the Ripper, A Christmas Carol, Dracula, and the works of Edgar Allan Poe. With vivid examples and experiential exercises, Spirits, Seers, and Seances invites readers to explore the deep impact these beliefs had on the past and present, and how they continue to shape our celebrations for holidays like All Hallows' Eve and Christmas.
