Engineering Inclusive Excellence with a Heart-Centered Approach
Navigate challenging conversations without shame, blame, or guilt
Did a careless comment, the wrong tone, or a well-intended conversation blow up and now folks aren't talking to each other?
Those “little things”, like an untreated microaggression, can derail a team, stifle an organization, and leave members hurt and traumatized.
It’s important to repair the damage as soon as possible. Put out the fire, and address the incident so it doesn't fester and further jeopardize your team and business/project.
But jumping into a conversation about sexism and racism can feel like you're jumping out of a plane! You're terrified that someone will get hurt and think of all the things that can go wrong.
In my experience, people want to talk about it, they simply don’t know how. They have questions, but worry that they should already know the answers and are too nervous to ask. Others feel judged or ashamed. They all need reassurance.
Cultivate an environment where everyone feels seen and heard.
Let's sit down and talk about it.
Let's get on a zoom call and let me hear exactly what you're navigating, what you need and how I can help.
Hi, I’m Angelica Castro,
I’m an expert in bringing out the best in your team. I hold your hand and guide you and your team through thoughtful, heart-centered ‘safer brave spaces’ where every member can be vulnerable and feel seen and heard.
I facilitate customized, confidential talks and workshops by gently and expertly bringing the energy of love back into the environment so folks can have real discussions and begin accepting each other once again. I’m a bridge to conversations with more empathy, acceptance, and kindness toward each other.
Love is my thing. I am love, because this is what the world needs right now. I’m passionate about working with organizations, educational institutions, nonprofit, and professional teams.
Let me show you how to bring out the best in your team.
I would love to take this journey with you.
“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences. When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak."

"The first time I heard Angelica speak was on the audio app called Clubhouse. Within just a few minutes of listening to her, I knew we needed to connect beyond social media. Coming from similar cultural backgrounds, Angelica and I had an instant connection - but beyond that spark, it was Angelica's passion and conviction for having created (R)Evolutionary LOVE that had me at the edge of my seat - wanting her to share more! I do not doubt that Angelica will change many lives the way she has already changed mine. She is a champion of love, healing, surrender, and growth. I know you will be in extraordinary and capable hands when Angelica becomes your coach and guiding light!"
