In Search of Wisdom, Understanding and the Purpose of Life
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 Erasmus Foundation is not a religion, cult or sect, it is a group of like minds searching for answers to questions about "life after death, where we come from, why we are here and the purpose of life". Many of these talks by Erasmus and other spiritual tutors over the years have given a great deal of knowledge about the structure of man, his history, his true inheritance and answered many of the questions of life. We also believe meditation is very important to maintain a healthy life and for spiritual development, and we also offer spiritual healing free of charge at all times.
The structure of our World is changing very dramatically and people are experiencing difficulties and challenges in their life at this time. We are here at the Erasmus Foundation to provide some explanation and support for all that is occurring. If you would like any further information please contact us and we would be pleased to welcome you to join us in an appreciation of learning about one's spiritual structure or to answer any question you may have.

Letter of Concern sent to governments
"The World today is under extreme pressure, not only from the Coronavirus pandemic but also the very nature and behaviour of Mankind and, of course, Womankind, has contributed to this problem by Man's exploitation, badly managed, of the Natural Law through unhealthy farming practises and the creation of pollution worldwide. We in Spirit have known this was to be, and it must also be said that the responsibility lies with Man to put this right.
How should this be done? Very simple, Man must look to himself, endeavour to understand himself by personal inspection and continuous spiritual development. In time, Man will learn more about himself as spiritual tuition is directed through the design of the Great Mind so that over a long period of time Man will adjust his structure and knowledge of this to correct his World, bring it back into health and God sanity.
The Erasmus Foundation offers words of knowledge and wisdom to help with this cause in offering this to anyone of any colour, creed or nationality."
