Rachel’s vast knowledge and calm presence are a perfect combination for the work she does. She teaches and explains information in a way that is tangible and immediately applicable to daily life. And, her guided meditations are calming and effective. We look forward to having Rachel back to the Firm very soon!

The Positive Effects of Mindfulness:

  • Meditation practice is associated with decreased levels of psychological distress, such as less anxiety, anger, depression and worry.

  • Studies have found that the brain actually changes with meditation. (Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, January 30, 2011 with Massachusetts General Hospital researchers).

  • Many other studies have been done showing positive changes in overall well-being, such as improvements in serious mental health conditions (Baer, 2006) and better focus/concentration (Tang et al., 2007).

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Rachel and hosting her in my yoga studio for specialty workshops on various topics. . . What has impressed me about Rachel is how she communicates with such professionalism, understanding and compassion. . . throughout each workshop she is able to shed new light on a topic for me. She is relatable, personable, down to earth, and has an ability to meet each participant exactly where they are. She has a way of communicating ideas that can feel abstract in a way that is very practical. I am also impressed with how she is prepared, organized and timely as she holds each workshop, as well as in our preparation of marketing her workshops.

I have received very positive feedback from Sage Wellness clients who have attended Rachel’s workshops. Her topics are well aligned with our mission to reduce stress and pain and foster healing on many levels. Her ability to break down complicated topics in a manageable way, giving participants practical tools they can use in everyday life, is so appreciated by our clients. Rachel clearly cares deeply about the well-being of those attending her workshops and gives them a great gift of the tools for self-reflection and concrete steps to make changes in their lives.

In our mindfulness retreat, Rachel helped us open our minds and our hearts to tune into a higher vibration, envision our “future selves”, and lead us through meditations that helped remove blocks that may be standing in our way. This retreat strengthened us both individually and as a team. I am so grateful for Rachel’s work. We walked away with a feeling of community, passion, and awareness of our goals and intentions. I will absolutely attend another retreat by Rachel as well as have her lead future retreats with our team. Thank you for your calm, professional, and loving way of being!
