About Me

Hello, I'm John Lynch!

I live in a small peaceful village in Co.Kerry Ireland.

Throughout my life, I've walked diverse paths, wearing the hat of an entrepreneur in the bustling world of the communications industry and dabbling as a parttime product developer.
However, my insatiable curiosity about the nature of existence led me on a different quest—one that transcends material success. With an innate inclination to seek answers from within from an early age, I delved into the depths of introspection and sought guidance from various teachers. Over the course of two decades, I explored an array of methods and religions, piecing together fragments of wisdom that resonated with my intuitive understanding. Life, in its enigmatic ways, guided me through transformative events—both worldly and spiritual—altering the very fabric of my being. It was during a tumultuous period in 2008, when I chanced upon Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now,” that my journey took an unexpected turn. Something within me shifted, life changed around me in a huge upheaval in all areas and I became immersed in a relentless pursuit of truth. Through encounters with extraordinary teachers and profound spiritual experiences, my search intensified. Yet, it was around 2018 that the quest itself seemed to reach a pivotal juncture. However, just as life tends to surprise us, a life-threatening illness in 2019 shifted my focus surprisingly outward, leading me into the realms of the world and business. It was during the solitude and introspection brought about by the COVID pandemic that a new inspiration took shape—a business podcast. But a deeper calling beckoned, urging me to go beyond the realm of commerce and venture into the depths of profound human inquiry. Thus, The Discarded Compass was born—an endeavor dedicated to interviewing individuals who explore the greatest question that a human can ask: “Who am I?” Here, we delve into the intricacies of self-realization, the realms of consciousness, and the transformative power of spiritual awakening. Join me as we embark on an enlightening exploration, shedding light on the path to self-discovery and unveiling the hidden treasure that we are.
