Shift beyond your busy mind and experience high definition, high voltage living with Cara Bradley, author of “On the Verge: Wake Up, Show Up, and Shine.” A companion to the book, this app will help you become awake and fully alive — on purpose — everyday!
Based on the material from On the Verge, this app is a call to wake up and be fully alive. By learning to shift beyond your busy mind— distraction, drama, doubt, and fear—you arrive, or show up, in this exact moment — on the verge — where you tap into your limitless potential to shine by directly experiencing your natural clarity, vitality, and confidence.
The Verge Practices available in this app are easy-to-use tools to help you get to know your busy mind and shift into the space beyond it, where you glimpse your natural state of clear mind, bright body, and open heart.
