Seance

Definition of Seance

The word seance comes from the French language, meaning seat or session. It is used to describe a meeting of people who gather together to receive spiritual messages or to communicate with the dead.

Like many practices, the media and Hollywood have tended to perpetuate a lot of hype around seances that isn’t necessarily factual.
