A ceremony to summon and communicate with the dead
Candles and various other ingredients
In 2001, the Charmed Ones performed their first Seance. They were being attacked by Shadow, a Familiar Warlock who wanted to become immortal. The sisters were magically helped by their Grams when looking for a vanquish in the Book of Shadows. When she opened the Book on the entry How to Perform a Seance, however, the sisters believed she was confused and closed the Book. Grams opened it back on the entry and thus the sisters performed a Seance.
Before them appeared Ariel, the witch whom Shadow was the Familiar of, and who was killed by him in order for him to become a Warlock. She explained to the sisters what Shadow had planned; getting rid of his nine lives and becoming a full Warlock. However, if he didn't succeed in getting rid of all those lives before the next full moon, Shadow would turn back into a cat forever. ("Pre-Witched")
In early 2002, Phoebe and her sisters, Piper and Paige, performed a Seance to summon the spirit of Angela Provazolli, a woman who had been killed by Andrew Wike, an employee of her husband's club. However, since her husband had the power of premonition, he saw what had happened and led the police to her body and was convicted of her murder. Phoebe, who was called for jury duty, had summoned Angela, so she could explain to the jury that her husband was an innocent man and did not kill her as the other members of the jury did not want to believe that Angela's husband could've had premonitions.
In 2003, the Charmed Ones performed a seance with the feuding Callway and Montana families to summon the unknown spirit that was attacking them. Everyone present joined hands in a circle with five red candles lit. The seance revealed that the attacker was Olivia Callaway, who was bitter about her death and felt that she was not avenged. ("Love's a Witch")
