“The Compass” is Arnina Kashtan’s unique methodology which synthesizes practices from Nonviolent Communication, The Work of Byron Katie, and Inner Child work with Arnina’s own discoveries, insights, and tools to support you in moving beyond old patterns of guilt, shame, anger, and fear…into freedom and an untapped celebration of who you really are, while influencing and accompanying others in their liberation journeys.
The Compass experience is so unique, it’s challenging to put into words especially on a screen. You might get a sense of it by watching this two-minute video clip from one of Arnina’s retreats (in Spanish w/English subtitles) or by listening to Juliana, a 2020/2021 Alumni, share her experience of The Compass.
“I offer you a deep, radical process of Truth, Compassion, and Courage, to uncover the essence of your Being and Presence while transforming your personal, familial, and professional relationships in unprecedented ways.” ~ Arnina Kashtan
The Compass Online is divided into two modalities of learning and deepening the methodology, according to your area of interest: Personal Liberation and Coaching/Accompanying.
This modality is for those who want to learn from The Compass, experience it, and integrate it into their lives on a deep level. Aimed at anyone who seeks to know more about themselves, heal emotional wounds, transform and create authentic and caring relationships.
This is the more intensive modality, for those who feel called, not only to learn this methodology but also to share it with others. Regardless of whether you already work as a coach or therapist, or if you wish to start this journey, or simply want to support others in your life, this modality will open up new horizons to be able to integrate the tool and open the possibility to share it with others.
Within the Coaching Track, there is an option for professional certification. For this, you will also need to attend an in-person retreat (Online in 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions & likely hybrid in 2022) with Arnina; some written work about your own experience with The Compass including a summary of coaching work you have done with others; as well as acts of care for the community.
Frequency: One virtual session every week — alternating between personal liberation sessions (w/pesonal track participants) and coaching/accompanying sessions.
We welcome your registration at any time and due to the general inundation of last-minute registrations, there is no guarantee that those who register beyond 8 am PT, Friday, November 19th, will be processed in time for the start of the course on Sunday, November 21st at 8 am PT. Therefore, we encourage you to register as early as possible and ideally no later than 48 hours before the start of the course.
To register please use the drop-down box below by selecting the track you are signing up for and entering the amount you are paying in the “My payment is” box.
***Then be sure to complete our REGISTRATION FORM as well so you don’t miss out on important course communications. Thank you. 🙂
If making a one-time payment within the sliding scale presents a barrier to your participation, we invite you to pay the tuition in three or six installments which you can simply note on the registration form. For those for whom this would still present a barrier to your participation, we invite you to reach out to collaborate on a plan that would work well for you.

“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
“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, The Compass 2019/2020 & 2020/2021 Alumna
“The 8 month [Compass] continuum has given me strength and courage to become safer and trusting within myself. It supported a shift towards including myself fully in caring for the whole, that resonates in all areas of my being. I enjoyed how all examples of behavior given by participants are welcomed by Arnina, looked at with clear understanding and warmth, carefully undressed till we find awareness and more choice around it.” ~ Vesta Kroese, The Compass 2019/2020 & 2020/2021 Alumna
“Working with The Compass has increased my capacity to be the change I want to see in the world! I’ve enjoyed a sense of living more authentically and showing up much more enthusiastically “on purpose” in all areas of my life. Thank you for sharing this incredible gift.” ~ Heather Austin, The Compass 2019/2020 & 2020/2021 Alumna
“Arnina builds a space of trust, compassion, and connection with the participants, enabling us to cultivate a community for long-term learning and companionship.” ~ ~ Fernanda Cecin, The Compass 2018/2019, 2019/2020, & 2020/2021 Alumna
“I feel more free, more alive, more motivated and empowered.” ~ Claudia Sánchez, The Compass 2019/2020 & 2020/2021 Alumna
“I appreciate the way individual experiences are used to create a structure for teaching universally. I liked the length of the course, too; a longer time frame seems right for absorbing these complicated ideas. 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, The Compass 2019/2020 & 2020/2021 Alumna
“The compass course is vital to anyone serious about transcending trauma and/or becoming certified as a trainer of nonviolent communication (NVC).” ~ Monica Espinoza, The Compass 2019/2020 Alumna
