We meditate not to get rid of thoughts but to allow them to ‘be.’
Jacquie is a certified meditation teacher, parent, registered teacher, blogger, and amateur musician. Jacquie has three school-aged children, two boys and a girl, and understands it’s not easy being a parent.
Many parents today are overwhelmed and anxious about their parenting responsibilities and relationships with their children.
Using meditation Jacquie guides parents through techniques to help them hold space for their body, mind and spirit.
Jacquie creates a safe space for you to be you, whether it’s a one-to-one session or a group class.
Jacquie has completed an Advanced Certificate in Guiding and Teaching Meditation through the Australian Centre of Holistic Studies. She has studied meditation courses with Dr Shefali Tsabary (Oprah’s parenting expert, author of The Conscious Parent and The Awakened Family), Suzi Lula (author of The Motherhood Evolution), Jeff Foster (The Joy of True Meditation) and Matt Licata (The Path is Everywhere).
Jacquie specialises in self-compassion and self-care for parents of all ages.
Parenting does not come with a manual and it’s tricky to know whether we are making the ‘right’ decisions. Meditation has assisted me to work through my own difficulties with anxiety and control and learn about how to speak to myself with compassion.
Giving myself permission to be vulnerable and make mistakes is a wonderful gift.
Children learn to love and accept themselves when parents accept themselves first.
