Vida is an Ordained Minister, Energy Healing Facilitator, Sacred Arts Performer of Voice and Afro Brazilian Dance, certified instructor of Qi-Gong, Sacred Activist, former director of Swing Brazil Dance and Co-Creator of Rainbow Body Matrix.
Vida's life work began in her teens with a near death experience during a severe illness. This inspired her quest to find and understand the deeper meaning of life through explorations of Higher Consciousness. The Journey brought her to meditation and studies of contemplative life in an Ashram.
While pursuing her professional career, Vida moved on to The Healing Light Center after another near death experience. It was at HLC, whose director was The Reverend Rosalyn Bruyere, that further studies into the mysteries of healing were developed.
