Jac's satsangs and interviews cover a broad range of topics. Listening to a recording repeatedly is a useful tool for those who wish to revisit what was explored at a satsang retreat, and also for those who were unable to make it. Satsang creates an opening to the nothingness and freedom that is beyond the sense of material existence. Jac's extensive background as an energy worker sets her apart in that she is able to scan the many layers and dimensions from relative to absolute reality. She has the unique ability to pinpoint where people are stuck due to identified thought, be it of a karmic, energetic, or psycho-spiritual-emotional nature.
Her inclusive approach does not dismiss subjective life experiences; everything has its place. Jac's satsang style is to respond to each person individually as every path is different. There is a unique life to be lived while one's true identity unfolds. Jac places things in context, pointing to the unlimited movement of consciousness and from there, prior to non dual teachings, and the last step; prior to consciousness itself. Video satsang and audio satsang explore the pull to self enquiry, awakening, liberation, self realisation, and to that which is beyond all concepts.
All upcoming events are posted on the satsang schedule page, offering information and contact details for you to view and book your place at an accessible location. You are welcome to attend the entire programme or individual sittings in Jac's weekend or at evening Satsangs. All retreats are residential and in silence outside of satsang meetings. This format offers you the chance to disconnect from usual social interactions and allows you to be attentive to what mind is presenting for identification.
Jac sings and writes music for fun. Her chanting style is unique due to the wealth of musical traditions in Ireland and formal, university studies in music and theology. Jac's Celtic influences seamlessly merge Eastern and Western sacred music traditions, offering something that is refreshingingly different. Her singing style encourages accessiblity to lyrics that can be in Gaelic, Sanskrit, Pali, or English. Downloads are available for free and for purchase. Jac's music assists spiritual seekers of truth by offering sounds that help attention to sink within. Rest, relax and enjoy!

Books & Writings
Texts written by Jac explaining the theory of non duality, Advaita Vedanta, are available in books, e-books, transcribed satsangs, articles, and e-satsang newsletters. Jac's writings offer pointers towards the non dual perspective and ultimately Truth. Many of these works have been translated into other languages.
Spiritual seeking can manifest as a pull towards peace, harmony, and happiness. For others, it can push them away from all that was believed to be true. In both cases, this movement towards enlightenment is labelled the 'spiritual path'. Jac's writings assist in transcending any such concepts. The spiritual path ends when it is seen that there is no path and nothing to find. The one who you believe yourself to be, a personal identity created by thought, has imagined itself into existence. Upon reading Jac's insights and pointers about this, you can in your own time explore your place in the evolution of consciousness, and move toward the freedom and peace that comes with liberation from all concepts, even spiritual concepts.
