The Bristol Spirit Lodge project was founded in October 2006 with the building of a wooden garden shed.  The first séance was held in that building early in February 2007 as a personal experiment to discover to my satisfaction whether or not there is any likely truth in the potential reality of continuing consciousness following physical death. 
Since then a house move enabled the provision of a dedicated séance room within my home. Between 2006 and 2020 over three thousand seances were hosted within the Lodge and a truly amazing plethora of evidential physical mediumship and related spiritually effected phenomena become witnessed by myself, supporting attendees and guest sitters alike.  Also as a result of witness interest several similar circles became founded both in UK and abroad and several books have been published about the project. 

As self-motivated regular attendance is considered to be of paramount importance within the Lodge group at no time has any attendance fee been requested.  This practise also ensures that there has never been any financial incentive involved within the experiments. 

In March 2020 the Covid-19 lockdown caused the poorly ventilated Lodge seance room to be closed and it wasn't until the spring of 2022 that a dedicated attendance routine became re-established. 

I am often asked about the seance room itself, as people seem to think that the room must be a dark haunted space, rather than the comfortable meeting place that it surely is... 
The room is filled with treasures collected over the years, each item holding loving memories of seances, mediums and sitters who have gathered together since the founding of the Lodge.  The curtained cabinet, placed in the corner of the room, acts as a personal space where the developing designated medium can relax and where stronger spiritual connections may become formed.  
Over the years many developing mediums have been supported by conducive sitters and spirit invitation, to enable the demonstration of evidential spiritually effected physical phenomena within the Lodge environment. Our historic records are extensive.  However it is important to recognise the continuing process of the development of spirit communication and related phenomena, which requires dedicated sitting, patience and gradually evolved learning.

For those wishing to start their own experiments...this small book describes the practical founding of the Bristol Spirit Lodge Circle:
This book offers an historic record of trance communication received at the Lodge:

An independent academic 'wider' view of the Lodge project authored by an attendee:

The Lodge project remains a private venture and is unaffiliated with any religious or spiritual organisation.

The Lodge currently supports the development of evidential physical phenomena through one Medium sitting with dedication once weekly, with two other developing Mediums sitting occasionally.  If this subject genuinely interests you and you would like to learn more about the Lodge project, or if you have time to sit regularly and dedicate to working towards the demonstration of evidential physical mediumship yourself,  please contact me.
