Natural Awakenings San Diego

Inner Directions Hosts Interactive Weekend with Jac O’Keeffe

Sep 30, 2013 10:15AM

Inner Directions, a nonprofit organization dedicated to publishing distinctive books, digital video and online media that express the heart of authentic spirituality, will host an interactive weekend with Jac O’Keeffe in Carlsbad, California, November 1-3.

Inner Directions, producers of the highly acclaimed “Inner Directions Gathering” held in La Jolla, regularly sponsors authentic spiritual teachers for weekend retreats. They are pleased, once again, to sponsor Jac O’Keeffe. 

Jac O’Keeffe was raised in rural Ireland. In 1997 her life changed dramatically when she experienced a spontaneous inner awakening. Her quest ultimately led to That, which is beyond the mind and transcends dualistic thought. O’Keeffe’s satsang style is to respond to each person individually, since there is a unique life to be lived while one’s true identity unfolds. She places things in context while pointing to the unlimited movement of consciousness—and ultimately to that which is prior to consciousness itself. She has the unique ability to pinpoint where people are stuck due to identified thought. O’Keeffe now spends her time between Ireland and North America, facilitating spiritual meetings and dialogues. 

“Let your attention be on what is taking place, not on how you fear it may impact you,” says O’Keeffe. “The problem is not with the mind, it is the personal identification with thoughts that creates suffering.”

The retreat will be held at The Conscious Arts Center, AwareHouse 11, in Carlsbad. Hours are 7 – 9 p.m. on Friday, November 1; 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 2; and 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 3.

Cost: $12 Friday evening; $65, each full day, Saturday or Sunday; $115 both Saturday and Sunday. Free parking. Advance registration is required. To register, call 760-599-4075 or visit
