Spirit Matters Podcast
In the following interview, author and spiritual teacher Jac O’Keeffe dives deep with Phil Goldberg of Spirit Matters Podcast. They discuss Jac’s own spiritual journey and her role as a teacher in the evolving spiritual landscape.
Jac recounts early experiences on the path; from the opening of her third eye to her travels in India and the cessation of mental chatter and thought. Now working as a spiritual teacher, Jac shares her understanding of the relationship between student and teacher in the spiritual journey. She discusses her work as a cofounder of the Association for Spiritual Integrity (ASI), and bringing awareness to the need for cultivating honesty and transparency in spiritual leaders.
A “post-guru” era of spirituality is on the horizon, and Jac calls for a new model where the students maintain their self-authority rather than projecting onto an external guru figure. She aims for a cultural shift to a more honest, open, and human way of being for all. Listen to the interview here.
