Lina Di Santo

Licensed Spiritual Practitioner

Lina is first generation Canadian, born of Italian decent and whose parents immigrated to Canada in late 1950’s.

First born of 4 girls and leading by example, creating opportunities for her siblings while informing parents of perceived cultural variances. Blending the best of both cultures is at the core for Lina.

The love of learning the unknown has always been a fascination for Lina, specifically on how the Mind works and how it impacts people to be who they are.

Attending the Center for Spiritual Living shortly after brain surgery from a concussion due to a cycling accident, Lina found her new community in Fall 2011. As Reverend Jonathan Zenz started courses the moment he arrived at the Center in Jan 2012, Lina engaged in the studies. It stemmed from looking for a new way to Live Life. It served as her recovery and discovery!

From her first Mental Muscle Bootcamp came her message through ONE word: L.O.V.E.

“Lots of Vibrant Energy” and knowing that everything is Energy, the healing was all about reconnecting to that.

Lina is a “Jill of All Trades”, Mastering “ONE”. Having studied many philosophies and healing modalities, the message is Universal and that it is all about Oneness.  She believes that Mastering” ONE” starts with the Self, the Beliefs, the thought, and the actions in creating a fulfilling Life of Being.

Embodying the Philosophy of Science of Mind, she connected all the dots with her previous studies over more than a decade.

Lina feels it’s a daily practice and constant evolution to our greatest Self. There is always more to know.

One of Lina’s favourite quotes: “I Aspire to Inspire before I Expire” Eugene Bell Jr.

Since that time he has embraced this philosophy as a way of life and practices every single moment. He knows that his this is what his life was meant to be and that his gift to is to see the truth in every single person he meets.
