CHECK OUT WHAT MY STUDENTS ARE SAYING
"I had the privilege of being part of Rachel's meditation/art workshop last year. Rachel expertly, gently and wisely steered us to a quiet, meditative state through guided imagery. I was amazed at how quickly I relaxed and listened to my breath. I could not believe how refreshed and rejuvenated I felt afterwards. Rachel created a safe environment for each of us to share a bit about what we experienced.
Throughout the painting session Rachel was instructive, supportive, encouraging, and patient! It was quite cathartic and interesting to see the final product! I must say the experience was liberating. Especially after the meditative session. I felt a freedom to splash paint on the canvas, use different colors, and not think too much. It was so much fun! The group of women were very supportive also as we all became interested in each other's art creation.
We finished the painting session with a close circle of friendship. My heart was full of gratitude for Rachel who so expertly and lovingly organized such an inspiring afternoon! Thank you Rachel for this fabulous workshop"

"Rachel is a truly gifted and intuitive artist. She held the space for me so lovingly to have some of the most powerful breakthroughs while doing the Breathwork Meditation that she teaches. Her presence is very comforting and loving. Painting with her was so much fun. I felt like a kid again. I was shown amazing and helpful techniques and really felt comfortable opening up to my own intuition and guidance"

"I was privileged to participate in Rachel's Awaken Your Creativity workshop. The meditation was inspiring. Feeling peaceful and inspired after meditation we went to Rachel's studio. I am not an artist but with Rachel's encouragement I was thrilled with the landscape I created. The class was awesome and Rachel introduced several techniques that helped me make my vision become a reality."
- Marsha Niles
"Despite only being able to join your heartfelt, fabulous, healing, creative & inspirational Artful Hour a couple of times, I SO enjoyed the meditations that took me to a different place. The imagery quieted my mind, and you made it safe to create whatever! Such nonjudgmental freedom is a precious gift, especially during these times. Your voice was magnetic & calming as you gently guided us through the hour. I can certainly understand why you have an international following! Rachel, You are a bright light that keeps giving as you show genuine care & support for each of your students. I feel very fortunate & grateful to be one of them."

I have long admired Rachel's gorgeous works of art and we own several of her pieces. To have the opportunity, to be instructed by a consummate professional, and a woman who I deeply admire, was a thrill."

"The Artful Hour has been heart opening. And I think it's been so heart opening because of you, and how you run the class. The meditations have been wonderful and so helpful in making me feel open enough to put pencil to paper and just see what happens. And you're so relaxed and clear that we're just here to create and not to worry. You are the magic that's made it magical."
- Judy Grant
"Very pleasurable hour with great folks. Thank you so much, Rachel, and everyone who was part of this experience. Creativity and adventure are flowing through us all."

"Your encouragement made me create something I wouldn't have.Thanks for your energy and your encouragement."
- Kristin Lindquist
"As a novice meditator and artist I was a bit nervous but Rachel immediately put me at ease. The meditation and discussion before and after were nothing less than miraculous.I was able to tap into the creative energy locked deep down inside. Being at her studio for the art portion took me back to my childhood. There was no right way and no wrong way, there was just your way.Unlike some painting classes where everyone is making identical versions of the same art, we each were invited to explore our own ideas and let that determine the final product. I loved seeing my piece come together, improved greatly by suggestions and help from Rachel. The atmosphere was so supportive and fun! Any level of artist could benefit from the experience.
