In search of Wisdom

Welcome to the Erasmus Spiritual Teaching and Healing Foundation, based in Laxfield in Suffolk, England. This fellowship was established by Lady Paddina and Gordon Cole in 1972, when spirit first started using Paddina as a channel to talk through and give lectures. In those early days Paddina's main spiritual tutorial guide was Ruscora, who during his life on Earth, was better known to us as the Dutch philosopher and humanist, Desiderius Erasmus. The lectures and discussions were given to answer many questions about "life after death, where we come from, why we are here and the purpose of life". Many of these talks, given by Erasmus and other spiritual tutors over the years, gave a great deal of knowledge about the structure of man, his history, his true inheritance and answered many of the questions of life.

Spiritual tutorial lectures and meetings are held every friday except during August. Please see our list of subjects and dates.
