    Fresh Eyes, Fresh Mind

    Beginners Mind is a Buddhist concept that I love and try to implement as much as possible. It’s not about forgetting everything we know, but rather about stepping into every moment without all the emotional baggage, prejudices and biases. It’s stepping into every momentRead More

    Meeting Yourself

    Rumi passed away 700 years ago and is still the best selling poet in America. His ecstasy filled complications of words, he apparently never penned himself but dictated whilst whirling in dance or in a meditative state. In the midst of his mentor andRead More

    Help Without Judgement

    Years back I read the most fabulous book called The Art Of Asking By Amanda Palmer. Yes she did a Ted Talk. No, you cannot get the same amount from an 18 minute scripted talk as you can on her book. It completely reframedRead More

    The Never Ending Jigsaw

    We are so good most of the time at looking back, and admitting, sometimes admiringly, that everything was for the best after all. That argument that shook us up, or losing our job, that breakup, eventually, all things connect, everything has a place. ItRead More

    No BS Gratitude

    Gratitude is a buzz word right now and almost everyone in one way or another has had some involvement with practices around it. Gratitude however is far more than a trend, or a hashtag. Gratitude, simply put is a concept that can increase emotional,Read More

    High Grade Living

    High Grade Living is a commitment to living our highest vibrational selves. To audit our lives, and then edit, and then refine. Because a beautiful, authentic, inspiring life doesn’t just get granted to us, we make way for it. We don’t need to forceRead More

    It is with the greatest pleasure that we announce our upcoming workshops with Jeff Kober. Jeff and I have been discussing, creating and refining for over six months this incredibly deep 2 day immersive workshop. It will involve philosophy and practical applications of it.Read More

    Join Jeff Kober and Jacqui Lewis for a Workshop integrating philosophy, ancient wisdom and modern tools and techniques to live your best life. Six months in planning the highest grade content has been invested by Jeff and Jac, and behind it decades of study,Read More

    And This

    One of my all times favourites. We can look back at painful times and reflect on how important they were, how much we learned, but in the thick of the present one, we just run around blindly, forgetting, that this too, shall pass. And we will be more conscious and knowledgeable forRead More

    The Roar of The Universe

    The ego, so loud, so insistent, so annoying, so abrupt. The heart, so gentle, so mild, so curious. If we continue to honour our ego over our heart, the universe will eventually roar so loudly, with such force that we will be forced to listen. I sit with students every week, thatRead More

    Down That Chute

    I love Tina Fey, and I love this quote. Overthinking jams up the whole system. We just have to get in and get our hands dirty. When we were in London in January, I met the most wonderful Aikido Sensei, and just being inRead More

    The Besieged Everydayness Of Life

    Remember that episode of The Simpsons were Marge blew a mind gasket and froze up on the bridge, windows up, refusing to come out of the car? She was so overwhelmed with responsibility and no time to herself she just lost it. I’ve almost been there myself whenRead More

    The Constant Reminder

    What happens when a bigger ‘problem’ comes along? All the big problems before it are suddenly relegated to little problems and those occupying our minds and egos fall away. Find out someone you love has been diagnosed with cancer, and that friend not respondingRead More

    Book Club Launch

    As avid readers and meditators here at The Broad Place, we know how transformational both these things are. We call it the 4% Rule. Where we invest 2x 20 minute meditations and 1x 15 minute inspirational reading into our day to enhance the other 96%. IfRead More

    Shhh Now, Ego

    Oh man doesn’t the ego like to stink up a tantrum when we are wondering, or worse KNOW someone else is speaking of us poorly. I recently had a situation where I could feel myself getting so indignant. Someone had said some things aboutRead More

    The First Time Should Be Enough

    Recently I watched Oprah Winfrey being interviewed after her Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes. She said, “The greatest lesson I’ve learned throughout my career came from Maya Angelou, actually, when I was first meeting her. After I’ve known her for aRead More

    Where Are You Now?

    We all seem to know this, that being present reaps the greatest rewards as a human,but very little do we embody and practice it. There’s just so much snatching at our attention in the modern world, and we have wired ourselves these days toRead More

    Fear

    Hi everyone, This is Emily, I am a meditation teacher here at The Broad Place. I have been working with Jac and Arran for years now, assisting on Retreats, knowledge courses and working full time on projects and the nuts and bolts of The BroadRead More

    Serious Trouble

    Have you picked up a copy of our The Broad Place Book Club book The Untethered Soul yet? You can jump on our forum and start contributing at any time don’t forget! I do love this quote as I so often hear my mindRead More

    A Daily Commitment

    What if it you made it this simple. What if you distilled all the self help and self development and spiritual teachings into a daily commitment of: LOVE ALL; that means all, every living thing  TRUST A FEW; be selective with your trust and trust yourRead More

    What Will You Think

    There is so much talk of the power of positive thinking, so much science to back it up, yet I feel that most of us skim through really never engaging with it. Sometimes it feels too forced, or fake, or like we are kiddingRead More

    When Things Go Wrong

    This week, let’s actively make choices to either gently flow in the direction of what is going right, and if things go wrong, not go with them. We’re not on sinking ships, at any moment we can make a decision to change direction. It’sRead More

    The Heart

    I often ponder why it’s so hard to follow our hearts and even harder sometimes to hear what they have to say. I end up in the same place each time, the heart is from our higher selves, and therefore is quieter. Because itRead More

    What Would It Look Like

    What would it look like if you had a year to live? What would you read? What would you stop reading? What would remain important and what not? Who would you spend time with, and who would you no longer spend as much timeRead More
