« Medicine, Science, Philosophy and Religion:

What Future with the Spiritist Movement? »

This year, we will highlight the future of the Spiritist Movement in its three aspects: philosophical, scientific and moral. Over the course of the conferences, future perspectives for each of those aspects will be developed. Our speakers will be able to give their testimony on the way in which the Spiritist Codification is perceived, as well as on the impact that they have observed in their region or in their field of work.

As long as the scientific scope is concerned, it is the medical aspect that will be emphasized with the participation of doctors and researchers, who will propose several conferences under the auspices of the International Spiritist Medical Association “Association Internationale Médico-Spirite” (AME International), and the French Spiritist Medical Association “Association Française Médico-Spirite” (AFMS), with subjects approaching new concepts from the angle of the knowledge proposed by the Spiritist Codification and its continuators, as well as through studies and recent experiments highlighting the relevance of the Medical Spiritist Paradigm.

With regards to the philosophical part, several speakers will tell us about how Spiritist Knowledge can impact our society through the existential questions to which it responds. What is the vision from which humanity could benefit thanks to the proposed answers? Several orators, including our friend Divaldo Peireira Franco, will also be present to give us a glimpse into this possible vision of the future.

Finally, concerning the moral sphere, we will have the immense pleasure of receiving Monsignor Gérard Berrier, Bishop of the Apostolic Order of the Hospitallers of Saint John, member of the Old Roman Catholic Church, who will speak about Christian fraternal friendship, which unites us through our common convictions – regardless of church affiliations – and based on universal moral precepts. This conference foreshadows how the Spiritist Movement can be perceived by religious currents, and how it is possible to remain close to each other, thanks to our shared values and mutual respect.

It is aiming to develop these themes that we will have the pleasure – subject to his health status – of welcoming during this encounter our esteemed friend DIVALDO PEREIRA FRANCO together with many other speakers and visitors, including:

  • Sonia DOI (President of the International Spiritist Medical Association “Association Médico-Spirite Internationale”)
  • Victor MORA FERIA (President of the Portuguese Spiritist Federation  and  First Secretary of  the International Spiritist Council “Conseil Spirite International” )
  • Jussara KORNGOLD (United States Spiritist Federation’s president – 2nd Secretary of the International Spiritist Council « Conseil Spirite International » )
  • Sonia DOI (President of the International Spiritist Medical Association “Association Médico-Spirite Internationale”)
  • Célia DINIZ (President of the Historical Center Chico XAVIER, “Luis Gonzaga” in Pedro Leopoldo – MG, Brazil)
  • Yvon DOYLE (President of the Canadian Spiritist Council)
  • Monsignor Gérard BERRIER (Bishop, Old Roman Catholic Church)
  • Laurent PERINI (President of the French Spiritist Medical Association “Association Française Médico-Spirite”)
  • Richard BUONO (President of the French Spiritist Council “Conseil Spirite Français”)
  • etc…This list is not exhaustive

LOCATION AND MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION

Our Congress this year will take place in Menton, city located in the department of Alpes-Maritimes (06), France. 

Although initially planned in Nice, we opted for Menton mainly thanks to its optimum  conditions of reception for the Congress delegates, the beauty of the city and its calm atmosphere. The Congress is planned to take place at the “Palais de l’Europe”, a highly-prized venue for congresses and exhibitions.

Take the A8 Highway towards Italy until the exit number 59. The “Palais de l’Europe” is located 10 minutes away from that motorway exit. (Please see the map)
