Reformation movement that began in Sri Lanka
WOWlife Church, a reformation movement that began in Sri Lanka amongst a group of friends who were drawn together by the club circuit of Colombo’s night-life: However, everything changed when Kirby and Fiona de Lanerolle received a prophetic word from a pastor who had come to Sri Lanka to help with tsunami rehabilitation work.
At the time, Kirby and Fiona were young business people with successfully planted companies in Dubai and Sri Lanka. Kirby was also an executive advisor to the Minister of Fisheries in Sri Lanka, as well as being in charge of the FAO aquaculture program. Fiona was a partner in one of Sri Lanka’s known media companies. Despite their busy lives, the prophetic call beckoning their hearts to lead a people into the Kingdom of His Son was irrefutable.
Fast forward 18 years, and today Kirby and Fiona are the co-founders of WOWLife Church, Their spiritual father and Pastor Neil and Savi Obeysekara cover their ministry. The friends they partied with are co-founders and also leaders and coaches. A visit to Sri Lanka or a WOWLife World event will give you an opportunity to meet the amazing friends and dynamic characters who alongside Kirby and Fiona first ignited this refreshing and vibrant movement. Not only them, but now the many wonderful others who came around subsequently to give their all and add their flavour to the WOW reformation that is taking the world by storm. They have built a community that is centered around the word of God, the prophetic, trauma-informed positive psychology who desire to see people flourish and thrive.
Kirby and Fiona are deeply committed to their faith and have pursued academic qualifications in law, theology, and flow science. They have also continued their education through postgraduate studies in neuroscience, positive psychology, mental health, and theology. This diverse range of knowledge and experience allows them to bring a unique perspective to their ministry and leadership at WOWLife Church.
At WOWLife Church, we believe that everyone is created to thrive and to live a life that is full of purpose and meaning. We offer a range of services and activities that are designed to help people grow in their faith, connect with others, and make a positive impact in the world around them.
Whether you are just starting your journey of faith or you have a deep intimacy with Jesus Christ for many years, we encourage you to journey with us at WOWlife Church. We believe that there is a place for everyone in our community, and we look forward to getting to know you and walking alongside you on this awesome voyage deeper into Christ and the glorification of his body
A unique episcopal body with a heart to train and advocate the free churches
The Apostolic Diocese of Ceylon (ADC) is a unique episcopal body with a heart to train and advocate for the free church minority rights. It was founded in response to the heart cries of the persecuted free church in SL. According to a 2016 report 8% of violence and “threats and intimidation, accounting for 44 per cent of incidents, while harassment by state officials accounts for 35 per cent of incidents. Often a causal link exists between these two categories”. The stats reveals the necessity of advocacy
In order to address this pressing need, Bishop Paul T Maran of the Indian National Apostolic Diocese invited Kirby de Lanerolle to oversee the establishment of the ADC in Sri Lanka.
Under Kirby de Lanerolle’s leadership, the ADC made history by unifying a large number of free churches in a short period of time, growing to over 600 churches within just nine months. Kirby’s ordination as bishop was witnessed by His Excellency President Ranil Wickremasinghe, who was then the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka. For the first time in Sri Lanka’s history, a government-sanctioned officer was appointed to coordinate the activities of the free and independent churches, and Kirby de Lanerolle has held this position to this day.
Despite these achievements, the free churches in Sri Lanka have yet to be fully recognized and the ADC continues to advocate for their fundamental rights. Despite the challenges they have faced, the ADC remains committed to its mission of serving the people of Sri Lanka and promoting the values of the free and independent churches.
Living In The Flow
Get ready for #LIVINGintheFLOW 2023 10X your life
Our journey in Spirituality has caused us to create new businesses, biohack sports, build thriving local and global communities, setting up educational platforms; all through using methodologies that are not particularly mainstream business concepts. Our interest in studying PP (UPen)and Psychology & Neuroscience (Kings College) is to marry our theological background (Fuller seminary) with empirical and evidence based human optimisation. I’m glad that social science and psychology are teaming up and positive psychology is giving age old spiritual concepts the evidence necessary for secular public application. Neurotheology is the latest science based approach that reconciles science and religion. It has been recognized that concepts at the very heart of Positive Psychology (PP) have spiritual roots; “Concepts core to PP – such as happiness, gratitude, kindness, love, and compassion – are common themes within many major religions and philosophies of the world, existing since the early days of humanity.” (Margaret L. Kern et al, 2020). Maslow (1954) first used the term “positive psychology” in the 1950s as a formal discipline, stating, “PP adds innovative methodologies and empirical evidence to age-old ideas.” Mental health is on epidemic scales, stress and burnout a reality for many. Trauma informed community based spirituality is safe place for and a individual to grow in.
Living in the flow will enhance any organisations understanding of flow-scienece, Group flow activations, setting of goals that are meaningful to your individual expression and give a background of the neuroscience and psychology of a growth mindset and equip you for a immersive life experience that is exponentially profitable.
Resilience and endurance Programs
based on the concept of “post-traumatic growth”
At WOWlife, we understand the importance of resilience and endurance in the face of adversity. That’s why we developed our “resilience and endurance” workshops, which are based on the concept of “post-traumatic growth.”
As a Christian-based ministry in Sri Lanka, WOWlife has faced numerous challenges and threats over the years. Despite facing political, social, and violent actions, as well as threats to our leaders and churches, we have managed to thrive and grow. In just one year, we grew from one church to 600 churches, and the following year we expanded to over 500 global units.
In addition to our physical churches, we have also made a strong impact online, with over 1,000 students participating in our online school in the first year. We also have the largest bible school in the country, providing valuable spiritual education to people from all walks of life.
Through our “resilience and endurance” workshops, we aim to help people build the skills and knowledge they need to overcome adversity and emerge stronger and more resilient. What does it take bounce back and thrive? how can one sharpen the muscles of “GRIT” and “WILL”. are their specific mind-sets that can be adopted through suffering so that trauma has a positive impact. Is it possible that pain can be turned in to purpose and passion. The alchemising of emotions are developed skill-sets and whether you are facing personal challenges or navigating difficult circumstances as part of a community, organisation, or alone; our workshops can provide valuable guidance and support.
We invite you to join us in our mission to build resilience and endurance, and to thrive in the face of any challenge. Together, we can create a brighter, hopeful growth mindset.
Christian Mystery School (CMS)
Deep dive into the mystical realm
Christian Mystery School is designed for any Christian Mystic who desires to complete a stage by stage ordination. Recommended to those who desire to dive deep into the mystical realm and seek a deeper and more intimate union with the Lord.
Christian Mystery School (also known as CMS) is an exciting opportunity to step into your fullest potential, leaving behind the constraints of religion and realizing that your unique expression as a co-creator (in the image of El Shaddai) is foundational. According to Romans 8, it is our mandate as Christians to complete an incomplete world. Kirby de Lanerolle’s heart is to equip the body of Christ through the “Christ-Centered” mystical operation created in the two years of lockdowns
Developed to help you with a meta-awareness
Practical meditations with Kirby de Lanerolle are developed to help you with a meta-awareness of how one can create a better reality. Intended to practically help those endeavouring to witness, and be.
They contain an approach which emphasises awareness of thoughts, rather than the classical methods of no-thoughts. It focuses on experiencing the vast-mind that upholds all thoughts instead of fighting away the thinking mind: the perfect marriage of the christ-mind with the ego-mind, the two being one.
Combines the latest in wellness science with ancient practices
Welcome to Monogenetic, a revolutionary program that combines the latest in wellness science with ancient practices from around the world. Our Flagship 5-Day program was born out of a personal journey of self-healing and discovery. From the time kirby de Lanerolle committed his life to the Lord he was led to fast; fasting empowered him to set him self apart for long seasons hungry to experience God in a more profound and tangible manner. Following after the prophetic models in the scriptures, prayer and fasting became what he was known for; He discovered that fasting was an invaluable training not only for physical health but for the grit, mental strength and sensitivity needed for his journey. Since then it has been discovered that the “leading” to fast was probably a life saver: as he was later found with a genetic disposition making it difficult for his body to detox, (due to missing base pairs of GSTM1). In an effort to overcome this challenge and improve his overall health, Kirby embarked on a daring long-term fast as a form of self-induced biohacking. The program trained partitioners about energy management and using breath as a not only a detoxing agent but an energy infusing mechanism that can change the microbiome. The teaching focused on shifting from symphatethic to parasympathetic through the “fruits of the Spirit”; emotions such as love, patience, joy, hope etc could shift gene expression and modulate energy even to help digestion and immune response.
The 5 Day Program also brought the opportunity for kirby to speak about the “Table of our Lord” introducing the love of Christ in a nation where Christianity is shunned and persecuted. Fasting as a crucifixion one’s desires and the activation of the fruit of the spirit was well received by even non christian government officials who engaged in the program. It opened doors for the values of the “way of the Cross” to be presented to an audience that would not otherwise be open to the faith.
This journey, which was featured on TEDx and the National Geographic Channel and reached 400 million homes, allowed Kirby to discover a number of effective protocols for bringing equilibrium to the microbiome and achieving a long and healthy life. These protocols draw upon the wisdom of ancient practices such as Chinese qui gong (kirby has trained under a GrandMaster), Sri Lankan ayurveda (kirby’s family was instrumental in the fisrt translation of the srilankan Aryuvedha recepie book and dictionary into english in the 1920’s) and fasting protocols, and have been carefully developed and refined through Kirby’s own experiences and experimentation.
kirby has conducted 5 Day fasting Programs across the world to over to 10,000 people his fasting practices also include shorter dry-fasts that have been safe and effective because of the clear spiritual mindsets that are adopted during these programs.
