‘This memoir is honest and beautifully written. This story is personal and when something is personal it’s not always comfortable and it takes strength to share your pain.

Life’s Not Yoga is eye-opening, emotional and empowering. You will not be left feeling the same after reading this book. Jacqui shows us the good and the bad of her life, and she decides to focus on the good. .’ – Rozanne Visagie

Book Review of Life’s Not Yoga

by Beryl Eichenberger

‘That Jacqui loves writing is evident and she pens a spirited and descriptive story that is engaging and thoughtfully crafted. As she bares her soul taking us into the very depths of her confusion and anger, she is brutal in her honesty and candour.

At times it is an uncomfortable read as so much of what she has experienced will resonate.  At others frustrating, as you cry, ‘no, don’t do that again!’

But ultimately it is a forgiving and brave story, with mindfulness and spirituality at its core. It is a true test of courage to face and battle the demons which colour and shape our lives.

NINE Near-Death Experiences


Click here to read the complete blog post.

Despite being a natural part of life, death is feared by many. Modern medicine even goes to great lengths to extend life, even if the quality of that life is unbearable.

But what if becoming familiar with death could help us live life better?

As someone who has had nine near-death experiences, all of them under different circumstances, I can now say that death holds no fear for me. I don’t say this with reckless bravado (although in some cases it was exactly that which brought me close to the end of my life). I say this as someone who has looked death in the eye many times and yet has had the great fortune to be able to return to life.
