Coming out: How Spiritism helped me with self-acceptance, by Murilo Soranso

Coming out: How Spiritism helped me with self-acceptance

Murillo Soranso is originally from Belém, in the Amazon northern region of Brazil, where he learned about Spiritism at the age of 15. Shortly thereafter in 1997, Murillo moved to Baltimore, MD in the US, to begin living his dream of attaining an American higher education. Little did he know that he would join a humble Spiritist study group that would soon grow to become The Spiritist Society of Baltimore. Since then, Murillo has lived in four states and received three university degrees, all the while making small contributions to the dissemination of Spiritism in the US. His proudest achievement in the Spiritist movement is co-founding the Spiritist Study Group of Central Illinois in May of 2017. The group is located in Champaign-Urbana, 130 miles south of Chicago. They hold weekly study meetings in Portuguese and monthly lectures in Portuguese and English. Murillo lives in Champaign with his fiancé, Chad, and their dog, Luke.
