Benu as tranced through Karen Cook
Karen is a deep trance channel from Albuquerque, New Mexico who channels Benu, the Archangel Gabriel. Benu brings forth amazing wisdom, knowledge and humor from the spirit side of life. Benu is an ancient Egyptian word that means “Doorway”.
Benu gives two workshops a year in Sarasota, Florida at the Sarasota Center of Light during the first weekend of March. The 2014 visit has been cancelled. We expect Karen to come to the Center in 2015. The first half of the workshops is spent on the topic and the second half is spent with Benu answering non-personal questions from the audience.
I have attended over 20 workshops & lectures with Benu and consider him to be the ultimate source of knowledge and information. Benu has access to all knowledge and has been around since the beginning of time. Benu through Karen also gives private readings Monday through Friday for most weeks of the year.
Reading with Benu are on hold for now.

Materialization Medium David Thompson
David is from England and has lived since 2005 in Sydney, Australia. He has been a mental medium for the past 27 years and a physical medium specializing in materialization for the past 17 years. David is the real deal in my opinion and authentic in his mediumship. He goes to great lengths during each séance to remove any possibility of the appearance of fraud. He is tied into the chair in the cabinet. He has a gag in his mouth with a tie wrap through the knot.
David went full time as a medium in 2011 and now demonstrates at a few venues in the U.S. in addition to places in Australia, England, Switzerland, New Zealand. If you get an opportunity to sit in one of his séances, take it. The experience is great!
David will visit the Sarasota Center of Light September 18 through 29, 2014. During this time, he will do five materialization séances plus a workshop. Registration for all séances and workshops will open up on January 2, 2014. Check the Sarasota Center of Light website www.SarasotaCenterofLight.com to download the registration and consent forms. Christine Morgan, one of the top mediums in Australia, will also give two workshops on mediumship.
Scottish Medium Bill Coller
Bill is based in Zurich, Switzerland and gives approximately 2,000 readings a year all over the world. He studied with many of the “famous mediums” of Great Britain when he was in his late teens and twenties. Bill is a world class teacher of mental mediumship and considered to be one of the best teachers of technical mediumship in the world today..
Bill comes to the U.S. a few times a year, visiting the Sarasota Center of Light in January / February of each year in addition to churches and centers in Long Island, New Jersey, Lily Dale, New York and in California near San Jose.

Rev. John White
I met John White in 2005 when he visited our church on a trip to Florida. He lives most of the year at Lily Dale, New York, home of the largest Spiritualist community in the world. He has been to our Center to teach and give lectures and spirit messages for the past 7 years. He has been a teacher of the Spiritual Sciences for over thirty-five years.

Known for the ability to unite Eastern insight and Western mysticism, John reveals secrets of the ancient’s disciplines. He has a unique ability to help others discover their own natural intuitive gifts. John is also an excellent medium and can be scheduled for a private reading by contacting him through his website or when he visits the Sarasota Center of Light.
John will next visit the Sarasota Center of Light from March 6 to 17, 2014. Check the Center’s website for more details.
After a 27 year career as prosecuting attorney in the State Attorney’s office in Cook County, Illinois, Toni opened up to an previously unknown ability to trance the teachings of a group of Master Teachers.
For the past 12 years, Toni has channeled many people in Spirit and with her colleague Peter Jenkins, has published 11 books. The material in these books is some of the best spiritual philosophy that I have ever read. Particular favorites of mine are “Spirit World Wisdom”, “Talking to Leaders of the Past”, “Exploring Reincarnation”, “How I Died and What I Did Next” and “Life Lessons.”
Toni is also an excellent teacher and medium. She too can be contacted for private readings and she visits the Sarasota Center of Light once a year. Toni is visiting the Center from November 7 to 20, 2013.
Eric Cargill lives in York, England and travels all around England and Scotland demonstrating deep trance mediumship. I have watched Eric’s development as a deep trance medium over the past seven years. Through a lot of hard work and dedication by sitting in his circle every week, he has become a great deep trance medium. Eric also teaches workshops on “Trance” and “Energy Work” which are excellent. If you ever get a chance to sit with him, it will be most beneficial to your development. He and his partner Gerald, will next travel to the Sarasota Center of Light May 14 to 30, 2014.
