The Broad Place | A modern approach to conscious living

The Broad Place describes itself as ‘a place where you can discover your highest grade self through applied ancient knowledge and meditation for your modern life’. It does this by providing various courses on meditation via their online community, workplace programs, workshops and retreats.

As a global school they offer a broad range of meditation courses diving into spirituality and focused teachings of Vedanta, Buddhism, Zen, Taoism and more, as well as, psychology and neuroscience.

What we love about Jacqui’s approach to mediation is her understanding of today’s world and the need to integrate meditation into our current busy lives. She believes that meditation isn’t reserved for ashrams or isolated caves, but rather a calming and powerful practice to help us navigate the modern world with more grace than without. ⁠

We could all use a little of that right?!⁠⠀

In this super fun episode, we explored Jacqui’s vision for The Broad Place in creating a new paradigm for education and self-development, celebrating creativity and consciousness.⁠
