A Greater Mind is within reach. I exist to help people and workplaces with this, through the powerful practice of meditation & mindfulness.
The Mind is our greatest asset in life & in work.
The Inner Edge is a meditation experience for inspired workplaces that really understand this and see this practice as a tangible way to help people with their mind & mindset.
As uncertainties & challenges become the norm in everyday life; we are going to need practices like meditation and mindfulness to help people not only navigate these times but continue to reach new levels of performance and creativity, while feeling well in the process.
The science of the mind on meditation is proving that all areas of performance and well-being can be supported and enhanced with this practice.
It just makes sense, that a stressed out mind is not a high performing mind
As part of my on-going work, supporting people in workplaces; I have created
The Inner Edge:
a live weekly meditation experience, delivered via a virtual medium, like zoom thus making it easy to access whether people are at the office, working remotely or travelling.
The sessions are centred around relevant personal growth themes like, mental strength and resilience, emotional intelligence & vision, creativity & clarity, to name just a few.
Themes are chosen based on what is most relevant and meaningful to the organization, as well as what is showing up for people along the way.
I take the time, at the end of each session, to answer questions and to help make this practice accessible, easy & inspiring.
In between the live sessions participants can access session recordings through SoundCloud as well as meditation content through the Inner Edge portal for their own daily practice, if that is something they are inspired to explore.
Connect with me at firstname.lastname@example.org, to set up a conversation about creating a unique meditation experience for the people in your workplace, something that an app cannot deliver.
The gift of a better workday...
Focus...Clarity...Ease...are not necessarily words that you might associate with your workday...but they could be, through the active participation and practice of mindfulness and meditation.
Imagine if more people on your team listened better, if there was less personal drama, if there was even more kindness and consideration for each other? What kind of impact would that create all around. Maybe it would feel better or even better to be at work. Recent research reveals the tangible benefits of meditation and mindfulness in the workplace. These kinds of programs can create benefits that add to organizational effectiveness and culture.
What others are saying...
“Angela has been giving meditations sessions for 18 months at Autodesk, at first at our office in Toronto, then with the pandemic, virtually. What I appreciate from Angela is her flexibility, desire to respond to our needs and always welcoming feedback. I like that she uses themes for every meditation, based on our suggestions. When you see Angela being so calm, generous and creative, you just want to meditate more to get the same benefits. I always thought meditation was inaccessible but I have changed my mind now. Many of us might feel that we can’t meditate because our mind is very busy and we cannot relax and focus on the moment. It is difficult, yet the more you take the time to stop and meditate, the easier it becomes. Angela has a few tips on how to settle our mind and I have seen real improvement. What I really like is that Angela always brings scientific facts to our meditation to explain how the mind and the brain work. As humans, we often look for evidence, right? In my HR position, I see employees struggling with the challenges Covid has brought over the last 15 months and I share with them how meditation can make a difference in these difficult times. Angela can make a difference.”

I started attending the weekly meditation sessions in the last few months after discovering them. They have been phenomenal, and I look forward to every Thursday (provided I do not have meeting conflicts). However frenetic the week is going and disorganized I am feeling juggling several projects, I always feel razor sharp in focus , re-energized refreshed and renewed after Angela’s meditation sessions. I had only recently explored meditation this past year, but it has been extremely beneficial in terms of focus, clarity and renewed energy levels. Thank you, Angela! C.M.
"When I have presentations to large audiences (even over zoom) I tend to get a bit nervous, and my heart beats like crazy etc. Since starting your sessions, I have been trying some breathing before I have to present anything, and that has really helped to make me less nervous.
Maybe that could be a topic or something to cover sometime?
Other places to use this even if only for a couple minutes before things like presentations?I am enjoying the resetting aspect to help with clarity, as I can better address my work to be done." D.W.
"I joined the organization about a year ago and was delighted to find out about the weekly meditations.
This was quite telling about the many ways this company is taking care of employees.
I totally appreciate the Thursday morning sessions. With Covid & a busy work schedule, having the possibility to schedule some time for my physical / mental health is amazing.
These work-specific meditations vary to address multiple areas of interest (creative mind, stress management, emotional intelligence, adapting to change).
For me this is a personal time to calm the brain and learn. It gives me energy and helps me feel more in control for the week. It is with great pleasure that I look forward to hearing the calming and confident voice of the coach every week." L. A.

Meditation & Mindfulness Coach and Facilitator
I've been working for and with organizations for over 28 years. My coaching work has taken me across multiple sectors: Healthcare, Technology, Automotive, Entertainment and Financial.
Today I focus on helping organizations who really want to help their people with the proven power and effectiveness of meditation and mindfulness.
Not as a "one time" thing in the form of a workshop or lunch and learn, which does very little, and not because it's trendy, but as an on-going valuable experience for employees.
A meditation initiative today just makes good business sense.
That's exciting and inspiring!
