Consciousness Mapping and Meaning-Making


Personal Compass is a site for exploring ways of mapping and meaning-making in the human journey. Navigators are people whose life work is charting the way for others by constructing maps, building models or structuring processes. Each Navigator sees the world from their unique perspective and while there is some overlap, the result is many maps, models and processes. People are often confused by what appear to be contradictions between the maps, models and processes so this website is an attempt to provide an overview of the different perspectives in a way that allows for multiple perceptions rather than one right way.This site explores:
