Gloria is uniquely blessed to have a strong working relationship with the world of spirit and teaches how others can do the same. Her education and teaching skills have been proven to help many embrace and strengthen their own gifts and abilities. Gloria believes that at a soul level, we all have the ability to connect to those that have crossed over.
For some like herself, it comes very naturally. Gloria believes that many are chosen by Spirit to do this work professionally and share it with others. She feels blessed to be one of them. Sharing her gifts with others is her mission in life. It's what Gloria believes she was meant to do during this lifetime.
In 1998 Gloria founded Gloria’s Place Of Hope, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to saving children from around the world, suffering from congenital heart disease. Her own son was born with this devastating disease, and her life since then has been spent helping other children and their families in coping with this same issue. Some of her accomplishments and notoriety through her organization and charitable works include a featured article in People Magazine; being named Parent of the Month by Parents Magazine; an interview by Tom Brokaw on NBC Nightly News; The NYU Medical Center yearly Humanitarian Award; The Woman of the Year Award by Glamour Magazine; several appearances on The Rosie O’Donnell Show, where she received funds which enabled her to open her own Gloria’s Place Of Hope House, to house ill children from around the world, as they awaited surgery; and several appearances on Oprah Winfrey’s Oxygen, in interviews by Gayle King. Also, numerous local radio and television appearances. Over 244 children from 17 countries were saved through Gloria’s organization.
Gloria J. Weichand, Founder and Program Director of the Center, is an Ordained Spiritualist Minister, Spiritual Evidential Medium, Spiritual Teacher, Lecturer and Grief Counselor. Known for her compassion and evidential messages from Spirit on an International level, she has been blessed to have studied under the best Spiritualist tutors both in the US and the UK, including the prestigious Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Sciences in England. She also teaches yearly and is on the Assembly at Lily Dale, the world's largest Center for the study of Spiritualism, located in Lily Dale New York.
Gloria was also honored by being asked to be apart of a study conducted by Yale University, which included some of the best mediums in the US and the UK to date.
From a small child, Gloria has held a strong belief in God and the after life. She loved going to church and hearing all about God, angels and heaven. By the time she reached adolescence, Gloria knew that she was connected in a strong way to the other side. Gloria always received strong signs from her spirit friends through what is known as physical mediumship. Some signs were so strong that many others in her life also witnessed them. Fearing she would be different than others, Gloria tried her best to ignore the signs. However, once in a while, just like the sun, the spirits would break through. Gloria felt no fear when communicating with the spirit visitors, but no one else experienced what Gloria did. Consequently, she knew this ability was not shared by everyone. Through extensive research and thanks to Ancestry.com, Gloria was able to confirm that she is the seventh generation that shares this ability in her family, on her mother's side.
Gloria is a staunch supporter for LilyDale, located in LilyDale New York, the largest Center for Science, Philosophy and the Religion of Spiritualism in the world, where she now teaches and serves on the Assembly. Thousands from all over the world visit LilyDale to receive their education for a better understanding of how their own gifts and abilities work in tapping into the world of Spirit. Many travel to LilyDale to receive messages from departed loved ones, knowing that some of the best Mediums in the world can be found there. LilyDale is open from June through September.
Gloria firmly believes that the mentally and physically challenged people on the earth are some of our greatest teachers, specifically chosen to lead us, teaching us the most important lessons in life.. which are compassion, understanding, acceptance, gratitude and forgiveness. She also believes that many of them chose the body their spirit resides in, knowing how great their mission truly is, understanding that we teach and learn our greatest lessons in life through difficulties, whether it be our own or witnessing others.
Gloria has her own Center, The Spirit Education Center and Sanctuary, LLC. Her thriving practice includes a host of classes, and workshops. In addition, Gloria is also available for private readings and platform gallery readings that she holds at her center or private homes and venues.
Gloria also offers workshops and brings in International Mediums and Teachers to Soulful Awakenings, located in Lake Como New Jersey.
Traveling throughout the country, Gloria offers all of the above at various locations. Her linking techniques have proven to help others become more evidential in receiving information from the spirit world.
Due to distance, many are not able to attend her classes and workshops. Gloria now offers online private classes and mentoring sessions for those interested. She also has been doing Readings online, both individual and groups, for many years.
Her mission in life is to help the grieving and the terminally ill. Also, to educate those who desire to do this work.., to do it in the only way it should be taught and given, which is evidentially, and in God's Love and Light. As she always says, "Treat it and use it as a gift from God...nothing else should be accepted."
Gloria has three grown sons, a lovely daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. She resides at the Jersey Shore with her husband Ralph.
