What we're about
Voices By The Sea Spiritual Mediumship Development Group meets weekly on Wednesday evenings, from 7:30PM to 9:30PM at The Spirit Education Center and Sanctuary, LLC. This meet-up is geared for those individuals who seek to have a better understanding of how the world of Spirit blends with our world in the here and now. Those dealing with grief, or suffering from the loss of a loved one, can also benefit from these gatherings. First and foremost we are dedicated to removing all the myths and fears connected with the Spirit World.
Each gathering will begin with a Meditation with focus on our Chakras, our energy center. You will also have the opportunity to participate in exercises which will help you have a better understanding of how Spirit is connecting with you. When time allows, all will be invited to participate in a Spirit Circle, bringing in messages from loved ones who now reside in the world of Spirit.
The Spirit Education Center and Sanctuary welcomes fellow travelers who seek to share, learn and enhance their own gifts and abilities. This is a place of truth and growth...a light and sanctuary to all who enter. All done in accordance with God's love and light.

Also, numerous local radio and television appearances. Over 244 children from 17 countries were saved through Gloria’s organization.
