El Camino del Norte, northern Spain, September 2015

Inner Waymark, LLC creates transformational events, services, and media content based on the core idea that we can find meaning, purpose, and direction within.

The idea for Inner Waymark was born in late 2015 when Nick Meador walked the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage across northern Spain. Yellow seashells and arrows ("waymarks") point the path and guide pilgrims to safe lodging in hostels each night.

But Nick began to realize that there are no waymarks to lead us through the rest of life. Furthermore, the world is changing and begging us to live out our individual truth and step into our full potential.

The way to do this is by connecting with our own core and gut intuition, to find the "inner waymarks" that will give us a felt sense of taking each step in the right direction. That's the foundation underlying everything that Inner Waymark does.
