Hi, I’m Sheila Lina.

It’s lovely to meet you. Thanks for dropping by.

I’m an actor, entrepreneur, filmmaker, writer, and yoga teacher based in Manila, Philippines.

I lead a non-profit called Society for Spiritual Awakening, which promotes Christ-centered meditation and spiritual development.

I’m the Founder and former CEO of Shopinas, an e-commerce platform. Concurrently, I was the President of Dun & Bradstreet Philippines until I successfully sold the business.

Having stepped down from both professional roles, I’m still figuring out my new life as it unfolds. All I know for sure is that I’ve committed to following Jesus Christ wherever he leads me. So far I’m being led to an exciting path of creativity and service.

I hope to share with you whatever wisdom and other cool things I’ve learned along the way to live a healthier, calmer, more balanced, Spirit-driven life.

Keep scrolling for a little bit more about me.

Film

After graduation, I moved to LA to act and produce. This was a pilot for a webseries called Sweety High.

 

Together with my sister Donna, I formed UBE MEDIA, LLC to produce independent Filipino film for a global audience. I was part of the team that produced the film Subject: I Love You.

Recalibrating my Center

At some point, I burned out and felt a little lost. After nine years of living in Florence, New York and Los Angeles, I moved back to the Philippines.

I pursued spiritual development and meditation with the group that would eventually become the non-profit organization, Society for Spiritual Awakening.

My first exit!

CRIF, a business information company based in Bologna, Italy, acquired my family’s shares in D&B Philippines.

My second exit.

No flashy acquisition story here. I stepped down as CEO of Shopinas just because I decided that it was time for me to move on and pursue a greater purpose.

What I’m Currently Working On

You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you to go out and bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
— John 15:16

SOCIETY FOR SPIRITUAL AWAKENING

We are producing an animated video series for YouTube that shares about Christ-centered spirituality to a broad audience.

Our first video, the Seven Bodies of Man, is about our multi-dimensional design as human beings. We discuss the physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual nature of our existence and how it is affected by our relationship with God.

We hope to plant the seeds of inspiration for people to pursue their spiritual development.
