Rachel started out her work life with a degree in biochemistry, and became a high-school science and maths teacher. Since then she's worked in a variety of roles, most of them teaching various modalities that promote wellbeing and awareness. In 2000 she co-founded Wellness Solutions, an organisational wellness provider, and has worked for Tall Poppies consulting (now Thought Partners) and Mary Potter Hospice, managing their volunteer programme.
Mindfulness, however, has been at the heart of her work and her deep interest is in seeing adults and children learn to live with more ease, wellbeing and joy.
Rachel: "I know at first hand our human capacity for pain, and I have understood that it is the mind which creates and perpetuates the most intense suffering. I have found mindfulness practice to be wonderful in learning to slow down to a more natural pace of Life, to uncover limiting thinking patterns, and to cultivate more ease, joy and spontaneity in my everyday life...
"I find the company of children refreshing. It saddens me that they are not being raised in an overall culture of wisdom and are therefore influenced by the values of a performance and economically-driven age. I love children's openness and their capacity to respond to mindfulness practice."
In 2007 Rachel met Aotearoa-born Spiritual Master, Sri Yanchiji, and is whole-heartedly engaged in a consideration and study of Life with him. Her spiritual journey, of re-discovering the natural and inherent joy that comes from simply Being - and waking up to all that eclipses that happiness - is increasingly informing her work with others.
