Born four days after the famous festival, Rachel grew up in Woodstock, NY. Surrounded by metaphysical books, music and health food, her first job was in the epicenter of the progressive movement in her small but eccentric town. Watching the New Age movement gather momentum, so began her path of seeking- and finding answers to questions asked by the elders in her community before embarking on her teen years.
The bulk of Rachel's twenties were spent at karma Triyana Dharmachakra, the Seat of His Holiness Karmapa; lineage holder of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, where she found herself serving and studying with some of the most profound teachers in Tibetan Buddhism. Travel in North India and Nepal brought perspective to her experience, book-ending her time spent in the monastery.
In choosing a life spent in quest, professionally she has worn many hats. Rachel's diverse resume includes work as a chef; ranging the gamut from catering specialized diets to recording studio kitchens, jewelery design, writing, concert promotion, music distribution/marketing publicity and performance to name a few hats. Her tactile immersion in the spiritual, service and music industries gives her a well rounded understanding of both sides of many coins.
Rachel is currently writing as her main form of expression.
