Author, Founder & Director of Jaya Yoga Toronto, voice/creator of Jaya Meditation and visionary behind “The “AUM” Project.
Life was feeling stagnant, repetitive, and a little like it was moving at the pace of molasses. Feeling the desire to start growing more on a personal level, and the pull towards a life-altering experience, Jacqualine Haller decided to embark on a journey of inner exploration. In the fall of 2005, she booked time off from her corporate leadership position in Canada, packed her bags, and flew to India to study.
In Pilgrimage for an OM, Jacqualine shares her personal story about what she experienced during her 5 weeks of intensive training and graduation. She then takes you right back with her as she returns to her leadership role in Canada. After a big move to Toronto, the end of a personal relationship, and a year spent exploring a variety of meditation techniques, her life starts to take off in more ways than she could have imagined.
Travel with her to India and follow her back to Canada after this life-altering training program. Join her in both the challenges and the beautiful moments as she walks you through her experience and teaches you what she learned about life and herself. Discover what led her to explore the deeper meaning behind meditation and to grow a true passion for her practice. Follow her through her determination to build Jaya Yoga Toronto, her passion around creating Jaya Meditation and the Jaya Meditation Method, and the inspiration behind The AUM Project, with contributors such as Yogrishi Vishvketu, Krishna Das and Deva Premal.
Read about the lessons she learned about spirituality, meditation, and her own deep understanding about herself. Join Jaqualine in the journey and use the tools she provides in Pilgrimage for an OM to navigate your own personal exploration of your inner being.

AUM is available to everyone and it is within each of us.
Let us create this next album together. The album of our collective “aum” – our collective ‘amen.’

“I loved your book. It honestly felt good reading it. I feel like you were in my living room, having a conversation with me like old times, back in the office. I miss you so much. It truly made me appreciate you more and how lucky I was to have you as a leader and mentor. You have an aura about you, a light that you bring. Your book came at the perfect time.
