"I am always here.
I am the embrace
Of your most intimate experience.
I am the nourishing state of fullness
That is the essence of soul.
You belong to me, and I am yours"
Vijnana bhairava tantra - translated by Dr Lorin Roche

“The retreat to Bali with Rachel has touched me in such a deep way, it’s been a beautiful time to just be, to feel, process and heal. It has been an opportunity for me to connect more deeply with myself without life's usual distractions. The practices Rachel offered were life-changing, and the location is paradise.” Michelle
