About Venetia Campbell

I have had a lifelong interest in evolving consciousness and Truth.

First exploring spiritual philosophies as a child, I learned meditation nearly 40 years ago.

In the 80s, during my first job as a press and PR photographer, I used to escape the high stress environment of the newsroom to practice Transcendental Meditation in the car park at lunch time. During this time I  trained as a volunteer for The Samaritans  help line for the suicidal and depressed. Meditation helped me.  I later learned Pure Meditation/Raja- Kriya Yoga ( Yogananda kriya- yoga lineage) at the Self-Realization Meditation Healing Centre in Somerset in 2005.

After moving to Sussex in 2006 I joined  the Brighton based charity Active Lightworks as a volunteer healer and was part of their management team for over three years.

Keen to see complementary therapies available to the local communities outside Brighton I set up The Community Wellness Project  which provided treatments and healing from local community centres in Rottingdean, the  Hillcrest Centre Newhaven, and the House Project Centre, Saltdean.

I  supported my local community by hosting a “Peacehaven Neighbours Community meetup group” and the “Existential Detectives Meetup”

In Oct 2015 I was drawn to assist the unfolding  situation in Greece and the humanitarian refugee crisis in Lesvos.

Feb 2016 I volunteered in Lesvos, Greece at the Better Days for Moria camp next to Moria registration Centre.

In addition to Mata Yogananda I owe much gratitude to realised spiritual teacher B Prior who introduced me to The Form Reality Practice, and continues to bless me with his wisdom and teaching  and teacher/guide Dave Oshana’s Enlightenment Transmission  Teachings.

Over the years my interest in Consciousness has led to studying and training in a wide range of philosophies and healing modalities ranging from:
