The spiritist center must be a nucleus for the development of spiritual culture

The sentence above expresses Cláudio Bueno da Silva's thoughts in the Special that we published in this edition and is one of its highlights. In it, the writer states that the period we are going through requires effective attitudes of mental and behavioral change and says that this is only possible to the extent that we understand the cause and consequences of the problems that affect us. For this, the task that belongs to the spiritist center is fundamental.

Another highlight of the edition is the interview given to us by Ana Paula Spinelli da Silva Teles, founding member and director of the Center d'Études Spirites Yvonne Pereira, in Cagnes-sur-Mer, a town located in the south of France, the country where she lives since 2009. She was born in the São Paulo city of Marília, she tells us in the interview about her experience in spiritist work.

As he has done for several years, Ivan Franzolim conducted another annual survey on spiritists and the spiritist movement in Brazil in 2023. In a special article, with the participation of Franzolim himself, our collaborator Ana Moraes highlights the main points of the results obtained in the aforementioned Research, which can be consulted in full, simply by clicking on this LINK
