Jessi has traveled extensively sharing the message of Ek Ong Kar (One Creator One World) as enunciated by Guru Nanak. Ek Ong Kar espouses the unity of mankind that is inherent in the diversity of different races and creeds. Jessi’s passionate commitment to sharing this message stems from her deep faith that peace is possible when the barriers of ignorance are brought down and we open our hearts to those who seem different from us. She strongly believes that the journey begins within oneself.

She is a frequent speaker at inter-faith gatherings and has spoken at the Parliament of World’s Religions in Barcelona in 2004 and Melbourne in 2009.
