Thriving Communities

Many business and workplace communities struggle with the symptoms of overwhelm, illness, silo-thinking and blame. People find themselves in mental distress because their minds are in over-drive. The impact on work-colleagues, family members and the individuals can be devastating. Humans are hard-wired to co-exist in thriving communities, so why can the culture at work sometimes feel so arduous?

The Inner Compass Guide CIC is a Social Enterprise that specialises in building communities founded on wellbeing. Listening for wellbeing in ourselves, and each other, is at the heart of our work.

In thriving communities, people experience support, love, creativity and resourcefulness as a by-product of understanding that wellbeing is an inbuilt part of the psychological system.

Creating thriving communities

A lot of time and energy is wasted in trying to change behaviour through setting goals, outcomes or applying strategies and techniques. Inadvertently such methods can exacerbate the problem you’re trying to fix.

Thriving communities naturally occur when people realise that resilience, wellbeing and creativity are at the core of who they truly are. There is no need to force change. When people start to trust a deeper intelligence and align themselves with how life works then change naturally happens. We all have an Inner Compass and it points us back to our true nature. We see that listening is a powerful catalyst for transformation and change.

We share a simple coaching approach that has a central focus on wellbeing 

There are two stages to the Inner Compass journey.

The first stage is about discovering your own Inner Compass. This isn’t an intellectual understanding or concept. We want you to see how your psychological system works. When you discover your Inner Compass, this leads to experiencing a freedom from stress, anxiety and worry. Life seems to unfold with ease.

You can explore your own Inner Compass by joining a retreat, join a Wellbeing Listener programme or engaging with coaching.

The second stage is sharing the Inner Compass message. Once you see your own Inner Compass, the natural question is ‘How do I share this with others’? We provide the chance to work closely with mentors, to shadow training sessions and to co-facilitate with experienced trainers to develop your skills and ability to share the message of the Inner Compass (Inside-Out understanding) in communities, businesses, schools and workplaces. The ultimate aim is to create thriving communities that our founded on wellbeing.

To recap – here are the two areas we work in.

1. Get back in touch with your own Inner Compass – this is your personal journey

2. Help others connect with their Inner Compass – this is sharing in the wider community

 

Get in touch with your own Inner Compass

If you’re immersed in stress and anxiety and finding it hard to keep up with the never-ending demands of life – then you’re probably experiencing symptoms of mental exhaustion.

These symptoms include excessive worrying, overwhelm and thinking constantly about work/partners/family. You might find yourself forgetful, snappy and unable to sleep properly.

This first step ‘Trust your own Inner Compass’ will help you reconnect to your own deeper intelligence and natural navigation aid.

When you start to trust your Inner Compass again, you’ll notice how you can navigate life with more simplicity and ease. You’ll make good choices and you’ll find yourself naturally connected to family, friends and your life purpose.

We’ve designed articles, podcasts and courses to help you on this journey. The Wellbeing Listener programme is one of our most popular programmes. Dozens of people join us via Zoom to engage in the training.

Connecting others

What’s the best way to share the Inner Compass in your community? If you are a coach, parent, manager, business-owner, charity-worker you’ll naturally want to support others.

We find that many people have already started this journey and have come across the Inside-Out/Three Principles understanding. They have re-connected with their Inner Compass and now they’re at a stage to find their own voice.

If you’ve ever found yourself in a bit of a tangle as you share the Inside-Out understanding, then join us as we explore, with you ways to connect authentically with others. We’ve designed simple, clear courses that point you back to sharing with others.

How did the Inner Compass evolve?

We’ve been sharing the Inside-Out understanding for many years. We’ve worked in schools, with leaders, with young people, community organisations, businesses and fellow coaches. Between us, we’ve been inspired by (and trained with) Jamie Smart, Garret Kramer, Rupert Spira and Michael Neill. We’ve also been to the Three Principles School on Salt Spring Island and hosted and spoken at conferences as well as running events with Elsie Spittle and sharing a stage with Garret Kramer.

We’ve encouraged our clients to explore a spiritual understanding, without putting them off with ‘woo woo’ or spiritual language.

If you would like to learn what we’ve learned and to see how we share, then the Inner Compass is the place for you to learn more.

What is our vision?

Our vision is for a world where people listen to each other and where parents and teachers to communicate with children from a solid grounding of love and understanding.

We see that charities, schools, businesses and families thrive when they understand the nature of connection and oneness and when they live in a world that is understood from the Inside-Out.

If you want to be part of the most important shift in human psychology, then join us at the Inner Compass Guide CIC. We want your voice to speak out in the world.

“Stuart and Liz have been truly inspirational in delivering a style of coaching that has transformed the way our MAT operates. We are much more self-reflective now and know how to help each other in a deeper and more meaningful way. It has transformed our MAT enabling us to adapt this style of coaching throughout all our schools”
