Ceremony & Session Testimonials

“Rachael is a beautifully empathetic, supportive, effortlessly strong leader allowing for both levity and gravity at the right moments. Her insight, wisdom, and experience guide the ceremonies and the entirety of the retreat with such a deft hand. The whole process was both profound and so enjoyable… The musical offerings that Rachael and other leaders made were exquisitely beautiful and the whole ceremony oscillated between silence and music flawlessly. The integration process afterwards was extensive and not at all rushed—each individual was cared for deeply… My retreat and ceremony with Rachael was among the most beautiful and powerful and revelatory experiences of my entire life. And, she has continued to be there for me to support me afterwards.” -Phil S., Jan 2020

“Rachael was a source of higher guidance and clarity to turn all of these emotions into lessons and then into breakthroughs to continue on in my journey in the most aligned way. With Rachael’s guidance I was able to quickly work through the pain and use these instances for the blessings and pivots that they were intended to be to get my life on a better track. … Rachael called in spirit guides and angels to clear out all of the emotional ties and connections that were based off of lies so that all that was left was love. This one was a huge shift for me, I honestly felt like a new person, like my DNA was rewired and the healing was really done. Now I am in a much better place to continue on my upward journey. … Rachael was always able to offer advice from the highest form of love and spirit guides that know me best- what better guidance could I ask for!” -Kaitlyn Emery June 24, 2020

You’ll leave with a renewed sense of purpose and love in your heart.” -Azeem M., Jan 2020 

“I’ve attended two of Rachael’s AYAM retreats.  I had no idea what [this medicine] was or what to expect from the experience. From the orientation process to the actual start of the weekend retreats, Rachael and her team were extremely professional and attentive to everyone’s needs.  Her commitment to providing a safe, meaningful and comfortable experience really helped to calm my anxiety. I would recommend Rachael’s retreats to anyone who is interested in finding a deeper connection to self in a setting that provides a variety of insightful activities and conversations for inner growth. It’s all love!” -Aliyah R., Jan 2020
