What Exactly is Physical Mediumship?
Physical mediumship is, in general, any form of mediumship that is seen to have a physical effect on the medium, others present, or objects; also, the production of tangible structures. Examples of these phenomena include transfiguration (when the medium's face takes on the features of the spirit communicator), trumpet or independent direct voice (spirit voices are transmitted independently of the medium), apports (objects are materialized in the sťance room) materializations (spirit communicators take on a material form and interact with the sitters), psychic surgery (spirit controls carrying out physical operations), psychic photography (spirit 'extras' appear on ordinary photographs) and EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena - extra voices occurring on tape recordings).
Are There Opportunities for Members of the NAS to Witness Physical Mediumship?
Yes, the NAS has venues in various parts of Britain where members can take part in an experimental sťance, with one of the NAS's developing physical mediums. The NAS also holds regular experimental sťances.
Is The NAS Affiliated To Any Religious Body?
No, it is not affiliated to any other body, religious or otherwise. Although it cannot be denied that the majority of members are Spiritualists, the NAS is open to, and welcomes, all open-minded people who have an interest in physical mediumship and gaining evidence of the survival of death.
What do I get from membershp?
MEMBERSHIP:- This entitles members to attend our seminars (closed to

members with a platform to air their views. The Ark Review offers members a free
advertising service to find a circle in their vicinity, or the opportunity to
make contact with others of like mind. The NAS Committee will answer queries to
the best of their ability, either directly, or by means of the Ark Review.
