about us

what guides our path

We are a heart-centred self-growth community on a mission to help people create passionate and intentional lives, aligned with their values.
the present day

a new paradigm: heart-centred self-growth

We are a heart-centred self-growth community, but what does this really mean? 

To us, this means moving away from telling others what they should be doing to improve themselves and instead inspiring them to take action from a place of personal power.

The old paradigm of personal development is underpin by a layer of guilt. One where we judge ourselves for not being a certain way, looking a certain way, or achieving some external measure of success.

Here, we invite you to step into a new paradigm. One where we respect our current psychological and physiological needs, and grow from there. This is what we mean by heart-centred self-growth.

Our mission is to form and nurture a community of people who share these values and aspire to grow from a place of self-compassion, self-honesty, and self-respect.

This community acts as a safe space to go deep and explore the big questions of life: "Why are you here?" "What does a meaningful life look like?" "How can you live life to the fullest?"

By unpacking these questions, you will gain clarity on your life path. You will deepen your connection to life and cultivate a wisdom which you will radiate to those you encounter.

If any of this resonates with you, then we would love to welcome you to be a part of our community.

Our origin story

From Chaos to Clarity: How inner compass came about

The seed of Inner Compass was planted when I (Jan, the founder) was going through a particularly stormy period of my life. I was working full-time as a management consultant, building a business on the side, and trying to navigate a move to a new country.

My life felt chaotic, and I struggled to prioritize my time. I frequently questioned my choices and direction, and my stress levels began to take a toll on my health. I developed cavities in half of my teeth due to the constant stress, and I often found myself lying awake at night, overwhelmed by anxiety.

It was during this challenging time that I created the Life Compass. This Notion-based system, initially designed to help me organize my chaotic mind, quickly evolved and grew. As I refined it, I realised that I could teach others how to organise their minds and structure their goals. I gradually came to understand that meaningful change was not about working harder, but about living smarter and focusing on the things that matter most.

I began to search my soul to figure out what I really wanted from life. I knew I wanted to make a positive impact on the world, but I had no idea what that looked like in practice. My journey was full of false starts, disappointments, and moments of doubt. However, I was fortunate to have inspiring mentors, wise teachers, and supportive friends who helped guide me along the way.

Now, my goal is to create a community where people can come together to support one another on their journeys of self-growth and self-discovery. I want to share everything I've learned from my own journey and empower others to create lives aligned with their highest values. Inner Compass exists to provide resources, knowledge, and inspiration to those seeking a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
