Ventura Center for Spiritual Living is a spiritual community that honors all paths to God and can help you experience a personal relationship with God. When God is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place, we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and we help bring peace and harmony to the world.

Message from Rev. Bonnie Rose

Dear Friends,

Welcome to Ventura Center for Spiritual Living, an affiliate of the Centers of Spiritual Living. We are delighted that your spiritual journey brought you to our website.

We teach the philosophy of Science of Mind and Spirit, a New Thought philosophy. Simply described, this philosophy teaches that we are part of the creative process of life. Our beliefs and attitudes create our experiences. We can choose to consciously create a better life for ourselves. The only thing against us in this life is ourselves. We awaken to the possibilities of life when we realize that there is nothing against us and everything is for our highest good. We teach people how to be “the way of God,” vs. “in the way of God.” Our philosophy is based on the writings of Dr. Ernest Holmes, a pioneer in metaphysical teachings. Today, many of the same concepts expressed by Dr. Holmes are receiving widespread exposure through the writings of Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson and others.

Please visit us and learn about how you, too, can have a great life and help make the world a better place!

Love and Abundant Blessings,
Rev. Bonnie Rose

October 2, 2016 - "It Could Be Worse"

Well received guest speaker and oncology chaplain, Michael Eselun will explore the different dimensions and implications of a coping strategy we all use - the notion that "it could be worse". What does it say about our view of our own suffering and the suffering of others?

Smokey, soulful and authentic, Gia Ciambotti is a natural! As a native of San Francisco, Gia was exposed to many styles of music. With influences from Stax Volt and Motown to British pop and country and western, Gia was drawn to music and inspired to sing from an early age.

After relocating to the Chicago area Gia began performing in bands, writing songs, and was introduced to studio recording. It was there that she knew she had found her calling.....

Gia’s decision to move to Los Angeles provided her with the opportunity for greater exposure, which has lead to a very diverse musical career. Be it live or in studio with such notables as Bruce Springsteen, Lucinda Williams, Rod Stewart, Celine Dion, Natalie Cole, Moby, Joe Walsh and James Gang, Badly Drawn Boy, Macy Gray or Little Richard, Gia delivers a distinct sound that keeps her in high demand. Gia has the versatility, style and power to draw you in and capture your soul.....

After enhancing the work of so many others, Gia has now written and co-produced her own brand of intimate and immediate songs delivering a raw sweetness, that only Gia can. With her debut CD, “Right as Rain”, Gia draws you into the moment without sense of time or space. With recognition and support from New Light Entertainment, Gia is now a music entrepreneur in her own right. Her vision and artistry put her at the forefront of a new wave of artists with the experience and seasoning to forge music into the next era.
