The word seance comes from the French language, meaning seat or session.

It describes a meeting of people who gather together to receive spiritual messages or communicate with the dead. Often people are portrayed as seated around a table holding hands, but that’s not necessary to conduct a seance.

Like many practices, the media and Hollywood have tended to perpetuate a lot of hype around seances that aren’t necessarily factual.
