SHEILA VIJEYARASA – Author, Keynote Speaker, Business Mentor, Corporate Coach & Spiritual Medium
There’s something to be said for the rising interest of ‘spirituality’ and how it might ennoble business. Traditionally it had no place in the concrete jungle but it’s now being explored everywhere, from Google’s boardroom through to the halls of parliament. And yet, it’s a topic that remains relatively untapped. That is, until now. Meet Sheila Vijeyarasa. As a trailblazing high-performance corporate coach, spiritual mentor and bestselling author, she’s discovered how a harmonious relationship between strategy and spirituality can in fact serve as a catalyst for change to thrive in business, career and life.
Bringing spirituality into the business world is by no means part of an esoteric new age movement. For Sheila, it’s a transformative movement for creating courageous and conscious leadership in a world where the role of CEO has never been more complex, more consequential than it is today. Armed with an MBA and backed by over 20 years in senior roles across accounting, banking, media and publishing, during her corporate ascension Sheila had an awakening. It lead her to cultivate her gifted skills in mediumship in England, master the art of emergent mindfulness in the US, and immerse herself in the transcendental teachings of the ancient Vedas in India.
With aspirations of helping people discover their true purpose and build more fulfilling lives, Sheila combined her corporate smarts with wise intuition to provide inimitable insights into spirituality as a powerful management concept. With an international bestselling book, Brave: Courageously Live Your Truth (described as a ‘comprehensive spiritual guidebook’ for the conscious corporate leader), it’s no coincidence that Sheila has become one of the most in-demand motivational speakers in the world today.
In ‘courageously living her truth,’ Sheila has also bravely shared her personal story with the nation via the ground-breaking series Big Miracles (Channel 9). Having met her now-husband Tyson Salijevic online during COVID-19 lock downs, it was an instant ‘meeting of the minds.’ And as they say, ‘timing is everything!’ Both in their mid 40s, in only a few short months this fast-tracked love story saw them become engaged, move in together and start IVF in the hopes of realising their ultimate shared desire of becoming parents. Now happily married, Sheila and Tyson will return for Big Miracle’s second season as they continue their journey to parenthood. So, stay tuned!
