What Rachel brings to her workshops is a commitment to her own personal healing journey, innate and intuitive musicality, a fascination with energy work and multicultural healing modalities, a knowledge of wisdom from global cultures, a deep awareness of the particular times we are living through and the urgency of cultivating interconnectedness, healing, care for the planet and each other and a lifelong passion for group harmony singing.
