“My name was Dr. Bindelof…Will you be the disciples of a dead man?”

The Spirit of Dr. Bindelof  focuses on one little known episode of physical mediumship, Gilbert Roller’s utterly charming and disarming autobiographical account of a group of teenagers who experimented with seance phenomena and contacted an alleged spirit named “Dr. Bindelof.”

On Tuesday, May 21st at the Observatory Room in Brooklyn, New York, photographer Shannon Taggart and Liminal Analytics will host author Rosemarie Pilkington for a presentation presenting the details of the Bindelof case using personal accounts, along with photographs and artifacts created during the Bindelof sessions. There will be a brief overview of extraordinary physical mediums and the feats they perform, placing the Bindelof case within this wider framework.

Rosemarie Pilkington, a writer, musician, and educator has a Ph.D. in psychology (consciousness studies) from Saybrook Institute. In addition to The Spirit of Dr. Bindelof, she recently compiled and edited Men and Women of Parapsychology: Personal Reflections Vol II,a follow up to the popular anthology Men and Women of Parapsychology: Personal Reflections Vol I.

    Sounds like a very interesting event, if I wasn’t living a couple of thousand miles away I’d be there! But a New Yorker friend of mine will almost certainly be there.
