The Compass Alumni “Retreat”with Visiting Trainer Arnina Kashtan

September 11 @ 8:30 am - November 13 @ 12:30 pm

Deepen, Experiment, Expand

This online “retreat” was designed to meet the needs of the 2020/2021 course participants and is open to all Compass Alumni with a minimum of 8-months of online learning. 
Its design and structure are primarily in support of those wanting to cultivate their capacity to accompany others with Compass practices and principles.  However, the first portion of the day will be a structured review and deepening of The Compass foundations and will therefore be equally supportive of those who are exclusively focusing on their individual liberation journey.
The second portion of the day will include coaching practice and guidance and enrollment in the full-day track meets The Compass certification requirement for retreat attendance.

Testimonials

“My sister Arnina puts together so much — systemic perspective, compassion for trauma, deep understanding about how humans function, and more — into a comprehensive, deep, and fully accessible framework that supports dramatic shifts in the experience of being alive. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a passion for freedom.” ~ Miki Kashtan

“The compass course is vital to anyone serious about transcending trauma and/or becoming certified as a trainer of nonviolent communication (NVC).” ~ Monica Espinoza

“Arnina’s depth, skills, sense of humor, and ability to articulate so many nuances so clearly are a gift for anyone seeking greater inner peace, freedom, and a kinder relationship with oneself and others.” ~ Kristi Dee Doden

“Integrating the principles and practices of The Compass into my daily life has increased my capacity to be the change I want to see in the world. My heart is full of gratitude for the incredibly valuable and deeply meaningful gifts that Arnina shares with such grace and compassion and I’m grateful also for the community that participates in and enhances the learning. What a nourishing experience of shared humanity The Compass has and continues to be.” ~ Heather Austin

“Having more clarity on the personal, familial, and social contracts I unconsciously accepted, helps me feel more welcoming and curious towards myself and others. More often than before, I feel less impatient with myself, less resentful towards others, and more empowered to act from choice and mutual care.” ~ Fernanda Cecin

“Arnina builds a space where I feel at home to share personal, parental, and relational matters. The way she unravels the themes the participants bring, and the compassionate light she sheds on them, boost my inner power and my capacity to be compassionate towards myself and others.  She promotes an awareness that helps me operate beyond the right/wrong paradigm and to be more and more in choice of my actions.” ~ Grace Deckers

“I feel more free, more alive, more motivated and empowered.” ~ Claudia Sánchez

“I appreciate the way individual experiences are used to create a structure for teaching universally.  I am newly aware of choices there are in how I speak to myself, and even though it is a momentous challenge to change, I am hopeful in going forward.” ~ Marge Margulies

“I so appreciate what I got to know about myself and my core beliefs. I needed to learn to accept, to understand, to be, and to love. Paradoxically, it is so freeing! My core beliefs are no longer my enemies, more like old (and sometimes dear) friends.” ~ Paula Rossi
