Truth is Realized. Now What?
5–day Residential Retreat with Jac
March 22–27, 2023 Veduna Retreat Center, Slovenia
“There will be a day when there's a realization that books and YouTube videos just don’t do it for you any more. Keep reading what you're drawn to until that happens. Whatever brings more clarity—use it. Whatever feels dry and barren, drop it. Otherwise we're just following concepts of the right thing to do, and that’s a path that goes nowhere. This is discernment and cultivation of the inner guru.” –Jac O'Keeffe
I've Had a Spiritual Awakening. Now What?
This deep-dive retreat is for individuals who have an inner felt sense of their true nature and are ready to take their awakening to the next level. You will learn how to integrate your expanded state with your everyday way of being in the world. At this retreat with Jac, you'll gain clarity on where you are living out of alignment and the habitual thought patterns that keep you stagnant in your spiritual evolution and daily life. This is fundamental to maintain shifts in consciousness after the retreat.
During a 5 day period with Jac, you'll have many opportunities to redirect your attention within and strengthen your connection to your innate wisdom. Jac will share spiritual insights and useful, practical skills to empower you in your inner exploration. She will provide guidance, support, and honest reflections—helping you to live an ongoing awakened life.
What Can I Expect from the Retreat?
You'll explore further with guided meditations where Jac will lead you to a direct experience of finer levels of consciousness. There will be practices that compliment these deep-dive meditations so you can bring your wakefulness into your daily life. These practices will help you embody expansive, inner spaciousness while you walk, eat, write, and engage in regular activities of life.
This intensive retreat focuses on advancing your ability to be aware of higher levels of consciousness, and also helping you to normalize these higher level shifts in perception. Often an awakening or spiritual experience happens but the moment passes, and the wisdom gleaned during the experience fades with time. Jac knows the importance of grounding and embodying new levels of perception and wisdom so you maintain these realizations in every cell of your being.
Take 5 days out of your routine to have time in silence, surrounded by nature in a peaceful setting. You will have the time and support to rest deeply and clear your mind. And you’ll have daily access to a spiritual teacher who is dedicated to empowering all who come to her events to take the next step in their spiritual evolution.

Veduna Retreats has a wide variety of facilities, including a large dining area and conference space with stunning views, a large yoga and meditation studio, an outside natural pool and sauna, arts and crafts studios and treatment spaces.
Many of the inside spaces are multi-purpose and spread over a couple of buildings, creating a real sense of freedom.
There are 23 hectares of land in which you can wander carefree surrounded by mountains, fields and forests, as far as the eyes can see and the feet can carry.
Our natural pool is a jewel in Veduna’s landscape. Hand cut into a natural pocket in the surrounding meadow, it is a stunning space to relax and cool down.
