Our Beliefs

Metaphysical Spirituality is an open and inclusive collection of spiritual principles that embraces the teachings of all Master Teachers and unites science, philosophy, and religion as a way of life. It is a pathway to connect with the inspiration, encouragement, and guidance of Spirit and to deepen our understanding and relationship with God.

It seeks to understand the spiritual and divine nature of life. We believe all things are possible when we live in alignment with Divine Law.

Our beliefs are anchored in the principles that were established by our founding ministers Rev. Dorothy and Dr. Russell Flexer in 1949 and have evolved through the guidance of Spirit for over 70 years. We hold true to our original tenets and have stayed open to embrace the continuing unfolding evolution of spiritual truth. The Sarasota Center of Light is a bridge that links the sacred divinity of Spirit with the ever-changing paradigms of Spirituality. See our History page for more details.

Metaphysical Spirituality is based on love, honesty, understanding, acceptance and wisdom. We live by the Golden Rule “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  We believe in personal responsibility and by trusting in and co-creating with the infinite nature of God, we are able to make a profound difference in our own lives and in the lives of others.


Through compassion and love, we embrace each other unconditionally


In honesty, we live open and connected in truth.


Through understanding, we bridge our differences.


With acceptance, we release judgment and are joined as one.

Our Commitment

We are committed to being of service with love, compassion, understanding and acceptance for each other and the world. Incorporating these spiritual truths, disciplines and energies in the daily activities of life creates a harmonious and balanced expression of profound spirituality. Learn more about our beliefs on our SCOL Principles page.

By opening to a deeper connection within we are able to connect and communicate with Spirit, validating the immortality of the soul and inspiring us to live more purposeful and meaningful lives. Through meditation and mediumship, our relationship with Spirit powerfully enhances our connection to the God Power and our spiritual growth.


Power Of Healing

Another way we share Spirit with one another is through our healing ministry. We believe in the healing power of God and we experience this energy through the unconditional connection between us. Our certified healers are available during our Sunday morning and Wednesday evening services, and any time for those who are in need.

As a spiritual community, we come together to share the love and light of Spirit with one another as we make our way through life. By learning and growing from our life lessons, guided and inspired by Spirit, we experience true happiness and fulfillment. As we encounter the challenges and difficulties of life, we know we can turn to one another and to our faith in our personal and spiritual growth. We know that as we trust in our connection to the unlimited essence of God and Life, we are able to feel it, know it, and experience it every day. We invite you to make Sarasota Center of Light your spiritual home.
