Bev’s a certified meditation and mindfulness teacher, integral coach, Enneagram practitioner and author of Awakening a Woman’s Soul: The Power of Meditation and Mindfulness to Transform Your Life.
TCM’s core belief is that people become happier and healthier when they cultivate a calm body, clear mind, compassionate heart and the courage to live an authentic life that’s true to their soul.
As a master’s prepared nurse, Bev worked for 30 years as a Clinical Nurse Specialist with vulnerable seniors and in palliative and end-of-life care. Her vision has always been to support health and healing from a holistic perspective that empowers people to awaken their true selves by integrating their body, mind and soul.
In 2014, Bev founded The Compassionate Mind to offer practical and modern approaches to meditation and mindfulness through workshops, coaching, and speaking to support human resilience and flourishing.
Several years after leaving nursing, I found myself in 2012 standing on top of Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the highest peaks in the world, and I had never been lower.
On the outside, it looked like I was successful, happily married, and cheerful, but on the inside, I was struggling and disconnected from myself. I had no idea who I was anymore.
I had been so busy on life’s treadmill and fulfilling all my roles that I had lost touch with myself. My physical and emotional health suffered, and my life lacked meaning and purpose.
This began a search to live with a more profound sense of happiness, health, and connection with myself, others, and life’s mysteries.
My meditation and mindfulness journey began a decade ago, exploring its ancient roots and modern research. Starting with 5 minutes daily, I began to come home to myself and improved my health, relationships and sense of purpose.
After a decade of practice and researching meditation, mindfulness, psychology, wisdom teachings, mind-body medicine and the Enneagram of personality, I developed the 7 Pillars of Awakening framework to provide a map for curious souls seeking inner peace, well-being and authentic happiness. I created a map so that people aren’t struggling to figure it out on their own.
I invite you to visit my personal website, where I share my personal blog with reflections, inspiration and resources for the awakening woman’s journey.
