Cassadaga: Speaking of the Dead

May 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free
People participating in a spiritual ceremony

Author and photographer Gary Monroe was allowed unrestricted access to Cassadaga, the Spiritualist community that was founded in central Florida more than a century ago on the principle of continuous life, the idea that spirits of the dead commune with the living. Though the founders of Cassadaga have passed on to the “spirit plane,” the quaint Victorian town remains the oldest continuously active center of the religion in the South. Gary Monroe’s visual presentation looks at the people, place and practices that exemplify Spiritualism–the Camp’s distinctive architecture, ritual life, core beliefs, séances, and healing work.

This program is a part of the Florida Humanities Council Speaker Series “Weird, Wild, Wonderful Florida.”
