Who Is Bev Janisch?

As a Personal Meditation Coach and Spiritual Mentor, I’m honoured to work with folks around the world who are responding to the call from their deeper selves.

A call that leads to a life of vitality, fulfillment and meaningful contributions.

 “The greatest privilege of a human life is to become a midwife to the awakening of the Soul in another person.” ~Plato

The background story…

Hi there, I’m Bev! A Personal Meditation Coach, Spiritual Mentor and former Nurse living in Alberta, Canada.

I’m on a mission to share tools, guidance and support with folks who are becoming increasingly aware that it’s time to make some rather dramatic changes on the inside and not just on the outside.

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

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

I’d been so busy on life’s treadmill and fulfilling all my roles (wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, Nurse) that I had slowly lost touch with myself.

On the outside, it looked like I was successful, happily married and cheerful. But on the inside, I had no idea who I was anymore.

In spite of having SO much to feel grateful for I felt lost and confused.

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

I really had no idea what was wrong. All I knew was that my health was suffering, my relationships felt disconnected and my life was lacking meaning and purpose.

I intuitively knew that I needed to look inside myself for answers, but I didn’t know-how.  

This feeling of “Soul hunger” became a choice point in my life. Either I could continue to deny that something was wrong and suffocating my Soul OR I could take action and learn how to look inside myself to gain some clarity about what was wrong with my “perfect” life.

The turning point happened when I reluctantly sat down and closed my eyes to meditate for 5-minutes. It was was one small step that changed the course of my life.

This was the beginning of a powerful journey back home to my deeper self –  to my SOUL.  

Along the way, I became a Certified Meditation and Mindfulness Instructor and Integral Coach.

I’ve worked with hundreds of folks who are also wanting to live more authentic lives that are aligned with a deeper knowing of who they are.

I’m humbled to say I’ve come a long way since standing on top of Mount Kilimanjaro.

I’ve come home to myself and created a life of inner peace, vitality, soulful relationships and deep meaning.


A little more about my professional history…

I worked as a Nursing leader for 30 years in the field of dementia and end-of-life care. I received my Bachelor’s in Nursing degree from the University of Alberta and a Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Calgary.

After leaving Nursing, I became Certified as a Meditation and Mindfulness Instructor through the McLean Meditation Institute™. I teach an approach to meditation that considers the body-mind-heart-spirit but isn’t aligned with any particular religious or spiritual tradition.

I’m a Certified Associate Integral Coach™ through Integral Coaching Canada Inc. and currently work as a Personal Meditation and Life Coach. This means I know how to create coaching programs for folks who want to experience lasting and meaningful changes.

In my spare time, I love mountain biking, running, cross-country skiing, being inspired by my 3 little grandchildren, painting, hanging out with my family and friends and adventures to try new things.

I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with my husband, Mark.
