Inner Compass Academy is pleased to present a Program of Discovery and Exploration - of your Self, of your Soul, and of the boundless possibilities for fulfilling your Soul's Plan during this lifetime.  The program progresses through the seasons with the Summer! Program, consisting of a Weekend of Discovery with co-instructors Joanne Franchina and Kimberly Thomas, followed by a Series of Exploratory Sessions of personal coaching with the instructors. 

SOUL SEASONS: Living Every Day Soulfully, Intuitively & Harmoniously

Do you long to be in the flow – in synch with the universe, connected to God, and in harmony with Nature? Do you wish you could get (and stay!) in that sweet spot, where things fall easily into place and good things fall often into your lap? Do you want to know what you came here to do with the unique blend of gifts, skills, experiences, and perspectives that you alone possess? Would you like to accelerate your spiritual progress and live your life more fully, confidently, and intuitively?  

You can! Join us for a brand new program of discovery – of your Self, of your Soul, and of the boundless possibilities for fulfilling your Soul’s Plan during this lifetime. Our program cycles through the seasons of the year. Each season includes a Discovery Weekend workshop full of transformative experiences and practical instruction, followed by a series of evening Exploratory Sessions for personal application and coaching with the instructors. 

This is a unique opportunity to work with your own real-life goals and priorities, with intuitive coaches to provide guidance and alongside other participants with whom you can share your experiences. You’ll receive lots of individualized support in applying the key manifestation processes of intention, attraction, action, reconstruction and integration, to help you create the life of your dreams. This is group coaching at its best – it’s like having two of your very own life coaches and sharing them with a small circle of your friends. 

Summer! Weekend of Discovery
with Joanne Franchina & Kimberly Thomas 

Be present with the energies of Summer – a season of vitality and playfulness, a festival of light and growth during which creativity is cultivated.  We will lovingly tend the gardens of our creative endeavors and let inspiration ripen in its easy time.  Meanwhile, light of heart and free from care, we will enjoy life’s simple pleasures as we rediscover our playful, childlike natures.  

  • Steering by the Stars.  It is said that our destinies are written in the stars. And there is no better time for star-gazing than summer! Learn what the ancient art and science of Astrology has to say about your purpose and path in life, so you can begin navigating your soul’s course from your own true north.
  • Naturally Intuitive.  Do you consider yourself sensitive? How are you at predicting the future? Perhaps you are a natural detective always seeking the heart of the matter intuitively? Or is listening to music your way of connecting? We all have a natural intuitive vibe. Understanding your favorite way to discern messages from your Higher Self will help you in making daily choices.
  • Retreat and Recover.  Recover your natural predisposition to well-being by revisiting an instinctive response from your childhood – to retreat under stress or duress. Learn the secret of stepping out of ordinary space and time to restore balance in body, mind, and spirit by planning a retreat for yourself – whether to a four-star spa or to a blanket fort in your backyard or dining room – that will help you reclaim your creative potential as your authentic self re-emerges free from the “disses:” discomfort, disease, and disorder.
  • Mealtime as Soul Time.  Summer is a season of festivals, fireworks, and feasts. We hold family reunions to honor those who have gone before us, as much as to highlight fun and food. Everyday mealtimes can also be soul-filled times. Learn ways to strengthen relationships, raise vibrations, and create something sacred without dogma, through simple mealtime practices of appreciation, centering, symbolism and celebration.
  • Tending the Garden.  Do you have a creative project that is in full bloom, in the midst of blossoming, just starting to bud, or still a seed idea? Whether you are cultivating flowers, growing vegetables, or minding a pet project, each stage of creativity requires attention. Explore potential next steps that you can take to express your best self, showcase a prize winner, or achieve your crowning glory.

Summer! Series of Exploratory Sessions
with Joanne Franchina & Kimberly Thomas 

We will follow-up our Discovery Weekend of formal instruction with a series of evening Exploratory Sessions.  Each session includes a Demonstration of Intuitive Coaching for an individual, a Group Process to take participants deeper, broader, and further with their purpose, intuition, healing, spiritual practice, and manifestation, and much more.  Topics for this Summer! Series of Exploratory Sessions include:
  • Noodling-Doodling.  It’s time to cultivate your creativity with some improvised and inspired drawing. Make a playdate with your Inner Child to create silly, “random” pictures and doodles. Then the real fun begins, as we learn ways to engage our Intuition and interpret possible messages in what we see! This is a perfect way to explore and enjoy the connection to your own spirit in a casual setting. 
  • Raising Vibes.  Can Healing be fun?  Absolutely – and especially if you count “raising your vibration” as a healing practice (we do). Besides, laughter really is the best medicine! Children instinctively know this, so let’s recall what made us laugh and feel good during our childhoods, as inspiration to integrate simple and fun activities into enlightening Spiritual Practices.  
  • Vision Boarding.  Bring your childhood dreams back to life! A Vision Board is a wonderful way to Manifest your hopes, dreams and wishes. Create a collage using images and words that symbolize your goals, intentions and Purpose, add some glitter and stickers for fun, and then watch as your dreams really do come true!
