Rachel facilitates Mindfulness Works courses in the lower North Island and is the director of the art of mindfulness, which offers 1-day and residentialmindfulness retreats; workshops; mindfulness training in organsiations; and individual mindfulness-based life coaching and mentoring. Her work often includes meditation-in-movement practices, qi gong and breathwork. Rachel’s intention is always to point people towards the path of living with more ease, self-understanding, wellbeing and joy.
In her own words: “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 for learning how to slow down to a more natural pace of Life, to uncover limiting thinking patterns, and to cultivate more ease, spontaneity and gratitude in the daily duties of everyday life.
In 2007 I had the great privilege of meeting Aotearoa-born Spiritual Master, Sri Yanchiji, and am engaged in a practice of studentship with him. The spiritual journey, of re-discovering the natural and inherent joy that comes from simply Being — and finding out all that eclipses that happiness — is increasingly informing my work with others.”
Rachel is also a poet, a qi gong teacher and a Feldenkrais practitioner.
Sitara’s 55 years of life experience and her time living in five different countries around the world have given her compassion and understanding for people of all walks of life and knowledge of how we ‘tick’ and how systems work. This is what she brings to all her work and interactions with people, be it mindfulness teaching, writing or creating art.
Mindfulness/meditation has allowed Sitara to taste the fullness of all experiences and emotions, and be ‘strong’ so there’s no need to avoid anything (which doesn’t mean there aren’t things that need avoiding!). “We didn’t learn to brush our teeth for just a few times, either; we do it daily, because we don’t want to suffer pain and rotten teeth. So too with mindfulness/meditation, hygiene for the mind and our proverbial hearts. Our body is ancient, our lifestyle (often) crazy-modern, circumstances and people challenging.” Sitara wants to inspire herself and others to include the ancient, proven method of mindfulness/meditation “so we can all thrive, not just survive.”
