I have a deep interest in spiritist culture according to the scientific and philosophic studies made by Allan Kardec and his main followers, namely Leon Denis, Gabriel Delanne, Ernesto Bozzano, Camille Flammarion, Albert de Rochas and according to a whole group of scientific investigators such as Russel Wallace, Charles Richet, Frederic Myers, Oliver Lodge, William Crookes, James Hervey Hyslop, and many others.
I also follow various scientific facts related to NDE's, PLR, the studies of Ian Stevenson about evidences of reincarnation, etc.
I am an author of a blog in the portuguese language about these themes, and have written a book also in the portuguese language about NDE's and its close relation to modern spiritism:
Experiências de Quase-Morte + Espiritismo
I regret the present trend of a mystical spiritism and try to strengthen the scientific and philosophic side of this important culture.
If you can understand portuguese you may find interesting my presentation of Spiritism for non-spiritists:
