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. The experiment initially began 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 environment and a truly amazing plethora of evidential physical mediumship and related spiritually effected phenomena has 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.
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 Lodge seance room to close. Following this, and through 2021 just a few seances were held in open-window conditions with a couple of people present. It has to be said that as Christmas approached that year I seriously considered closing the Lodge project permanently. Which is when I received a message via a friend, which led to a very positive meeting with a lady medium. This lady and I began sitting together shortly after meeting and others followed. It's a small step...but the Lodge project is again moving forward!
