Welcome Home!

Ventura Center for Spiritual Living provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place. We welcome all beings as valued expressions of Spirit, regardless of sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic class, disability, creed, size, shape or any other manifestation of the human experience.

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.

If you are in search of a spiritual community where you are respected and accepted for who you are and want the inspiration and support to grow to your highest potential, please accept our invitation to visit us soon!

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

Gino began performing at an early age. Born in St.Louis, Missouri, she was surrounded by the blues, gospel and musical theater. Her new CD, "Check the Mirror" reflects her roots creating the genre of music called SPIRITFUNKnMETALBLUES. Attending Catholic school and Christian College, Gino quickly became a lead vocalist and actress. Gino is expressing love of performing, passion and power.

Gino began singing at the Roxy, Troubadour, The Whiskey, Cinegrill, Luna Park and many other prestigious venues. She toured Canada, Chicago, Detroit, Laughlin, and Las Vegas with her band, Pure Ground. Once returning, Gino began working in the impersonation world. Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Queen Latifa and Ella Fitzgerald are all a part of her incredible line up; she calls her show the "Divas of Song", touring the United States and Europe. She was proud to take the "Divas of Song" on tour to our U.S. troops overseas. Recently Gino appeared at B.B. Kings Blues Club in Universal City with the Vibe Tribe, and performed her Chicago Show at the Stardust Hotel & Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas and the Santa Barbara Jazz Festival.

Gino has worked with many wonderful talented people such as Ray Charles, at the Temecula Film Festival, The Drifters & Ike Turner at the Long Beach Old School Festival, and Mary Wilson at the Lighthouse by the Pier. She has also performed on The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show and the Howard Stern Show.

Gino is quickly becoming the voice of power and passion. Performing with the Agape International Choir as one of the lead singers, Gino recently performed at The Ford Amphitheater to a sold-out crowd.

A singer/songwriter, her new CD "Check the Mirror" is inspired by love and the musical sound of SpiritFunknMetalBlues. Gino is sending out a Soul Call - her mission is to Lift & Shift The World through song and word, in collaboration with Lanny Perry, a songwriter/composer and bass player, and Rhys Moody of MTO Studios, the sound engineer with the best ears. Together they have come together to create "Check the Mirror".

This is your chance to hear her song, feel her words and transcend your energy to a Higher Ground. Be shifted by the dream!
