  • On one level, this is a tale of looking for love in all the wrong places, but on a deeper level, it’s a story of how adversity, viewed through the lens of insight and wisdom, leads to hope and redemption. It’s a tumultuous, terrifying, frustrating but finally redemptive journey, as Jacqui struggles to uncover the heroine within. The miracle is that she comes out the other side alive - and willing to use her life story to inspire others to survive and flourish.

  • Jacqui comes up with innovative ways of engaging with people given that she is always aware of her surroundings. During her recent talk with the first years, she challenged them to think creatively and not be limited by any factors. I was moved to think differently and challenge my status quo.

  • Jacqui has come through some tough times, but has used them to build her humanity, resilience and wisdom. Speaking from her own experiences, she has a great deal to teach us all, and does so with grace and respect.

  • The mindfulness course I did with Jacqui was the most demanding / enlightening / uncomfortable / amazing thing I have ever done. Jacqui guided me through learning hard truths about myself and how I see the world and at the same time gave the support and kindness to make me feel comfortable and safe the whole time. I am going to try and take everything I learned with me. Thank you, Jacqui – what wonderful gifts you have given me.

  • Jacqui's words motivate you to become a better person; to stay the course sailing life's river, on the winds of love. She inspired me to write a small piece myself and I've never written before in my life...And I put into words what I felt I'd learned. That the peace that is love is nature's sweet music of life! Sail on Jacqui and continue to spread the love!

  • In Jacqui’s course, I learned tools to help me create a more substantial and regular meditation practice. I learned so much about myself and to recognize negative thought patterns. Meditation is not only about sitting on your cushion every day, but about being mindful in your daily interactions with your Self and others and how you relate to your mind, body, soul and most importantly your Spirit. This allows you to live a life of gratitude and compassion, which equals happiness. Thank you, Jacqui.
