Rachel was first introduced to the Shambhala teachings in 1999 through Pema Chodron's book, The Wisdom of No Escape. She began practicing yoga and meditation in 2001, and since then, she has developed a personal meditation practice and trained at Shambhala Centers in Maine, Vermont, Colorado, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Rachel is a Shambhala Guide and member of the Brunswick-Portland Shambhala Center. In 2015, she helped to bring Shambhala programs to The Dancing Elephant where she now coordinates and facilitates programs regularly. Rachel is deeply committed to sharing the Shambhala teachings on basic goodness with the community. She loves guiding study groups to experience and explore how enlightened society is happening right now. In addition to teaching, Rachel loves to sail, visit islands, swim, and go on adventures with her family.
