Edge 20: 1992-2012


We celebrated the 20th anniversary of The Edge in 2012 by exploring the legacy of this holistic publication in the Upper Midwest…and beyond. We dug through the archives to present notable articles, insights and a gallery of covers.

Here are two of many testimonials about the value of The Edge in people’s lives:

“I enjoy The Edge each month. I always learn something new or just enjoy the articles. I pick up a couple for a few friends of mine each month, too.” — Renee Reece-Murray, Cedar, MN

“I began walking on my path at a young age. But coming into adulthood, I searched for a community. The Edge was that community. It brought me close to not only like-minded, but soulfully minded folks. I can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done and been in the last 20 years.” — Tiffany Johnson, St. Cloud, MN

Here is a sample of the vast archives of The Edge since 1992:

EDGE COVERS 1992-1995

The Edge was born in 1992 with creative mojo and a blast of spiritual focus. The opening quote on the first cover: “This is The Edge. We’re fresh, innovative and empowering. We’re here for people like you who want change — who feel new rules are needed — who are expanding the parameters by which you live — who want a forum for discussion.”

A trendsetter, The Edge explored the following themes from 1992-1994: Spirituality in the Workplace • Healing Ourselves: Complementary & Alternative Healing Methods • Spiritual & Visionary Artists & Musicians • Visions, Prophecies & Predictions for our Future • Dance, Movement & Meditation • Herbs, Earth Spirituality & Organic Foods • Healing, Spiritual & Retreat Centers • Body/Mind – The Healing Paradigm • Native American Spirituality • The Symbol • Energy • Remembering Our Star Connections • Men & Spirituality • Women & Spirituality • Angels • Spiritual Empowerment • Relationships in the ’90s.

The exact timing to birth The Edge was based on astrology.
