course overview

In world that is accelerating, how can we find our centre and walk our own path? This is where life design shines.

Throughout this course you will be guided through interactive exercises to lay the foundations for creating a brighter future. You will be introduced to two key concepts of life design: Life Paths and Life Areas.

Through these two concepts, you will begin exploring how your past influences your present and where you are out of balance in your life today.

what you will cover

Discover the formula for creating conscious changes in your life and how you can begin applying it to create profound shifts.

Explore how your past influences your present day reality by drawing out your Life Path and identifying formative crossroad moments.

Reflect on what it means to live from a place of alignment and what you could do to create more connection, passion, and joy in your life.

Conduct an energy audit to assess which areas of your life you are focusing too much on versus which ones you are neglecting.

Identify intentions you could set across each Life Pillar to bring your life more into balance.

is this course for you?

While everyone could benefit from applying Life Design concepts to their lives, this course is especially relevant for you if:

You are feeling stuck and restless and want to make changes to create a more fulfilling life.

You are undergoing a major life transition, such as break up, health challenges, or a career change.

You have recently graduated and are unsure about your direction in life.

You are a purpose-driven entrepreneur who wants to create a business, or pivot an existing one.

You are seeking to actualise your full potential by exploring ways to catalyse your growth.

Demystifying life design

Life design is the act of consciously shaping your future. It first requires you to go within - to clarify your path - then step outside to create a life aligned with your highest values.

This process can be emotionally messy and confusing at times. Your life doesn't change after one conversation or one course. Change requires vision, determination and consistency.

This is why we have a supportive community space, where you can grow alongside others, as well as a Notion-based system to organise your mind - the Life Compass.

Life design isn't about quick fixes or over-night transformations. Rather, it's about equipping you with the knowledge, tools, and resources to courageously create your future.

By joining our community will be able to create a passionate, aligned, and personally fulfilling life.

a bit about me

In 2020, I experienced acute derealisation for the first time, triggered by a traumatic event. In this half out-of-body state, the outer noise around me diminished, while my inner soundscape was amped up to 11.

This is when I strongly connected with the voice of my intuition. And it told me that I need to leave London, move to the Netherlands, and go deep within to heal myself emotionally and expand my perceptions spiritually.

Sounds crazy, I know. Yet, somehow everything that was made clear to me by this inner guiding voice came to pass. In the following 3 months, I had packed my bags and I was on my way to Amsterdam with my girlfriend, who had out of the blue landed a job there.

The following period of my life was chaotic and uncertain, yet freeing and enlightening at the same time. I surrendered to the currents of life and let them carry me to an uncertain future.

Fast-forward to today, I am now happily settled in the Netherlands with my own business. All being said, I wouldn't advise you to make such extreme life changes. Such radical changes fried my nervous system and left me in a state of burnout for half a year!

As I recovered, I gradually compiled 1000s of hours of material I had studied on self-development, emotional mastery, and trauma recovery into one place - my Life Compass. And this repository of knowledge eventually morphed into what you see today - Inner Compass Academy.

It is now my personal mission to help people better understand who they are, what they want from life, and how they can create change from a place of balance and alignment.
