Purpose & Mission

The Oneness Blessing or ‘Deeksha’ is a hands-on transfer of divine energy that initiates a profound journey into higher states of consciousness and creates the neurobiological shift, accelerating an ongoing spiritual awakening in the individual.

We offer the opportunity for anyone to come and receive this blessing.

About Us

Many world cultures and traditions speak of a process of awakening, enlightenment, or union with the Divine, a return to the “natural state” of the human being. In this state, the heart is open, there is an immense feeling of connection ~ an abiding sense of ‘oneness’ ~ with others and with the natural world. And one is able to perceive reality as it is, without the conditioned filters and unceasing interpretations of the ancient mind.

The process of awakening the human being to this natural state involves the activation of the inner spiritual energy ~ the Kundalini ~ along with a balancing of the various energy centers in the subtle body. When the Kundalini is activated and the chakras are balanced, we return to a very natural, simple, yet extremely profound relationship with life. Our senses are open and functioning clearly, our heart is open and we feel deeply connected with others. We find ourselves in a natural and beautiful relationship with what we might call the Divine, God, or with the higher Self or intelligence of the Universe. There is a deep and profound sense of trust in life, we are comfortable with ourselves and others, and are finally living as opposed to merely existing.

Lida has been active in the Healing Arts for over twenty-five years creatively using a variety of healing modalities in massage and bodywork, yoga, meditation, creative expression, energy clearing and energy balancing. All these practices enhance and strengthen our personal energy and spiritual growth, actively transform our lives in positive ways, provide inspiration, and allow us to experience health and well-being.

Awakening and giving expression to the inner artist and creative expression is one of Lida's passions. She is a watercolor artist and offers workshops on Visioning and Vision Board Classes. Lida co-facilitates a 12 week course in Creativity and Spirituality called The Artist Way by Julia Cameron each year. She is certified to teach and is adding private and group classes on Aviva Gold’s Painting from the Source – The Re-Enchantment of People and Planet through Art. This is a fun and dynamic way to tap into authentic creativity for our art and our lives.

Lida became an Official Guide to John of God in Abadainia, Brazil in 2015 and received permission to bring home a Crystal Bed. “Crystal Bed Sessions” are healing sessions where an individual lies on a massage table and seven precisely cut Vogel crystals with colored filters are arranged approximately eighteen inches from each of the main energy centers or chakras. The light and energy from the crystals and an energetic connection to the Healing Entities and Energies from John of God in Abadainia brings resonance to our physical and energetic bodies, promotes health and well-being, releases blockages from the endocrine system and the chakras, supports our spiritual connection, and are a wonderful complement to any plan for wellness and health already in place

Lida brings her deep appreciation of prayer and prayer treatment and connection with the Divine to her role as one of the Licensed Practitioner for VCSL to support people in aligning with the sacred creative life force energy that is within and all around us.

She is Chair for the new Creative Arts Ministry at VCSL and has co-facilitated the Oneness Deeksha Blessing Ministry for the past four years and loves singing with the VCSL Choir.

Lida lives in Ventura with her husband Greg, has a son and daughter, and delights in being Grandma Tutu for three grandchildren. She can be reached at 805-890-2581 or email for Massage and Healing Sessions, Practitioner Sessions, and Creative Expression.

Diane grew up in Santa Monica and moved to the San Fernando Valley where she raised her family. In 1989 she moved to San Diego where she studied the Science of Mind teachings of Ernest Holmes. After many years of study she decided to become a Practitioner and was originally licensed in 2008 at the Oceanside Center for Spiritual Living. In 2010 Diane wanted to be closer to her children, but after years of coastal living decided Ventura County was as close as she would get to the San Fernando Valley. She was delighted to discover the Ventura Center for Spiritual Living and knew that it was the perfect spiritual center for her. Reaching out to those in need of spiritual support is Diane's way of living the principles of Science of Mind. Diane can be reached at
