Episode Summary: Jac O'Keeffe is a spiritual leader, author, and trailblazer in the exploration of consciousness. Jac joins me this week to share her deep wisdom and perspective on spiritual awakening and enlightenment to help us fall in love with our humanness. Listen to this episode and learn how to reconnect with your true self and fulfill your greatest purpose in life.

Some Questions I Ask:

  • Are enlightenment and awakening the same thing?
  • How can someone forgive and love themselves if they’ve done some really bad things in the past?
  • Why do enlightened people, spiritual leaders abuse their power?
  • Is the world an illusion? Is there one God? If so, why is there so much evil in the world?
  • How to manifest in the world when you’re connecting only with your divine spirit and not your ego, ‘I’?

In This Episode You Will Learn:

  • What enlightenment is and some misconceptions about enlightenment.
  • How to detangle yourself from compulsive relationships and thoughts.
  • How to forgive yourself from something you did in the past.
  • How to identify the difference between a mental illness and a spiritual awakening.
  • The reason that there is a purpose for everything that happens to us.
  • What taking a leap of faith looks like.

Being present is all we need.

JAC O'KEEFFE is a spiritual leader with a unique style. Her teachings include pointers to prior to the non-dual state, and she is clear that non-dual awareness is a stepping stone and not a destination. She has high sense perception that she uses with precision to expose, unravel, and heal what creates blockages on our spiritual path and in our understanding. Her teachings also cultivate wisdom, honesty, and integrity. She exposes taboos that are usually avoided in spiritual circles and encourages conversations around issues that are fundamental to our human experience.

Jac’s work is driven by her capacity to envision the possible future of spirituality. Spiritual leadership has been authoritarian for millennia. Perceived as infallible, spiritual teachers were and are often not held accountable. Combine this with an absence of an emphasis on the teacher's personal growth and human evolution, and conditions become ripe for the abuse of power. Now is the time for a systemic change to a new paradigm which is intersectional, inclusive, and mutually receptive. Jac supports the evolution of spiritual leaders and their teaching methods to include accountability and kindness, bringing high levels of integrity to the culture of spiritual leadership.

Jac is also the author of two highly acclaimed books, Born to be Free and How to be a Spiritual Rebel, that serve as invaluable tools to those on the spiritual path. Her website provides a variety of resources for those interested in exploring how the infinite unfolding of consciousness shows up for them, www.jac-okeeffe.com. Jac’s weekly online event, the Truth Serum Cafe, offers the opportunity to interact with Jac in a community setting and explore the integration of spiritual wisdom and human experience.

Jac is a founding member of the Association for Spiritual Integrity (ASI), an organization that encourages the importance of strong ethical principles in the ongoing growth of spiritual communities and their leaders. https://www.spiritual-integrity.org
