About the event
On July 09th, we will be hosting the introduction to our very first City Alchemist book club. This a free event. The first book will be The Spirits' Book by Allan Kardec.
ABOUT THE CLUB
This book club will simply be a discussion of the book itself, and is not a form of class or mentorship. The meetup dates are tentative but currently are scheduled for Sunday evenings and once a month. Location is set at the City Alchemist office at 777 Shady Lane. Space is limited so please sign up if you are truly interested and committed to meeting once a month in person at our office location in Austin, Texas. All versions of the books are welcomed but a specific edition will be used and available to order for those interested.
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Spirits’ Book is part of the Spiritist Codification, and is regarded as one of the five fundamental works of Spiritism. Originally published by the French educator Allan Kardec, it was the first —and still remains— the most important spiritist book, because it addresses questions developed by the author.
The Spirits’ Book is structured as a collection of questions regarding God, the order of the universe, the origin of the spirits, reincarnation, life after death, the afterlife, the purpose of the life, angels, evil and good, dreams, telepathy, prayer, illegality, war, justice, freedom, suicide, egoism, love, etc.
The answers, according to Kardec, were given to him by a group of spirits who identified themselves as "The Spirit of Truth", with whom he communicated in several Spiritist sessions. Kardec, who considered himself an “organizer” rather than an author, grouped the questions and their answers by theme, occasionally including lengthier digressions the spirits had dictated to him on specific subjects, some signed by philosophers such as Augustine of Hippo and Thomas Aquinas and writers including Voltaire.
The Spirits’ Book is an essential work to read, study and meditate for the true spiritual seeker
