Ready to amplify up your personal or professional development? 1hr Private Mentoring  sessions are available by appointment with a limited number of spots over the week.

“I have been to councillors before and I certainly do not relax with them the way I do with Jacqui. I feel I can’t speak and be myself  the way I do with her. I like mentoring with Jacqui as she provides me with great strategies on handling certain situations, with a great positive bouncing forward attitude. Mentoring with her feels healing and nurturing . I always walk away feeling absolutely magical” Anjelika

Please note; if you would like to book in for any Private Mentoring sessions, please email us info@thebroadplace.com.au so we can register you and you will be sent an invoice that is then payable online.

“A mentoring session with Jacqui is like giving a gift to your future self. She makes you feel understood, uplifted and empowered with practical strategies and wise advice for managing anxiety, indecisiveness, spiritual growth and self care. I am constantly referring to the notes from my session to feed my soul and plant the seeds for big changes in my life. I appreciated Jacqui’s kindness and compassion mixed with straight talking advice that cast a beautiful light on the adventure of life” Anjelka Jankovic


When the situation calls for extra special care, or simply that group course times don’t meet your needs, a Private Meditation Course in a one on one setting with Jacqui is just what you need. Designed to suit you in every way, from times to format, we can assist.

At times it is desired that a small group of people that know one another well learn this magnificent practice together. Jacqui happily facilitates this in your own home with your friends of choice or at The Broad Place with a custom package including timings, Dosha Balancing Teas and treats and the opportunity to tailor the knowledge to meet the group’s needs in the last session. Please contact us directly to find out more information on info@thebroadplace.com.au




Available to all our students that have already sat the course this is free to you, for life. Please feel free to resit Sessions 2, 3 or 4 individually or all three sessions as suits. To reserve your place please email us at info@thebroadplace.com.au as soon as possible, as spaces are limited.


After many requests, we now open our courses in Vedic meditation to students that have not learnt with The Broad Place so they can access Jacqui’s unique teaching style. There is a fee of $330 to participate in the course, with access then for life as a member of The Broad Place Scholar program. Contact us for more information info@thebroadplace.com.au

“Jacqui offers a fantastic journey into the world of Vedic Meditation. Having made the decision to embrace this form of meditation, Jacqui was definitely the right person for me. Having a flexible, realistic approach to this life changing opportunity and an ongoing support base is the way to go. Her passion is supported by a comprehensive knowledge and practise base. The Broad Place is the only place for me” Rebecca Hambour
