About Bev Janisch

Who is Bev Janisch?

Bev is a former nurse turned certified meditation and mindfulness teacher, transformational coach, and author on a mission to illuminate the causes and alleviation of soul hunger so that people can live with greater inner peace and purpose.

Too many people are disconnected from themselves and suffering from soul hunger, stress-related health issues, emotional struggles, relationships that drain their life force energy and lives that lack meaning and purpose.

I know these struggles well!

I loved being a nurse and was deeply honoured to journey with people during the final phase of their lives.

After leaving nursing, my soul hunger triggered my self-discovery and awakening journey. I was led to meditation and mindfulness to connect with myself, improve my health, feel more peaceful and live a more meaningful life.

In 2014, I founded  The Compassionate Mind as a passion project to offer research-based holistic approaches to meditation and mindfulness grounded in spiritual wisdom and adapted for modern lives.

Over the years, I have become a certified Integral Associate Coach™, meditation and mindfulness teacher, Enneagram practitioner, Master’ s-prepared nurse, and author of Awakening a Woman’s Soul: The Power of Meditation and Mindfulness to Transform Your Life. 

I have two married children and am a Nana to five little munchkins. I live with my husband of 40 years, Mark, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

I am passionate about guiding people in discovering the best version of themselves and lives that feel good to their souls!

Here’s why I’m so passionate about this…

In 2012, I was standing on top of Mount Kilimanjaro, one of the highest peaks in the world, and I had never been lower.

Like many people, I was so busy on life’s treadmill and fulfilling all my roles (wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and nurse) that I slowly lost touch with my SELF.

On the outside, I looked successful, happily married, and cheerful, but on the inside, I had a deep feeling of soul hunger and had no idea who I was anymore.

Despite being grateful, I felt lost, confused and stuck. 

I found myself asking big questions: Who am I? How can I feel more peaceful? What’s missing in my life? Why can’t I just be happy?

I had no idea what was wrong and why I was experiencing what I later called soul hunger. All I knew was that my physical and emotional health was suffering, my marriage felt disconnected, and my life lacked meaning and purpose.

My dark night of the soul became a choice point. I could either continue to struggle with the stress and disconnection I was feeling or get to know the real Bev beyond all the roles, conditioning and limiting beliefs running my life and holding me back from becoming the best version of myself.

I spent a decade researching and practicing meditation, mindfulness, positive psychology, energy healing, esoteric wisdom teachings, mind-body medicine, the Enneagram of personality, human design and many spiritual traditions. I offer a unique coaching approach, and if you’re curious, you can learn about What Is A Transformational Coach And Why Do I Need One?

Based on this deep dive and the countless folks I’ve coached worldwide, I’ve integrated this wisdom into a signature coaching program, Say Hello To Your Soul, for awakening souls ready to discover themselves and boldly step into who they are destined to become, living a peaceful and purposeful life.

I’m grateful to guide people on their transformational journeys.
