Relax… Refresh… Return to your Everyday Life Fully Renewed

Travelling to new places provides new stimulation for our brain - Not only is a break from the ordinary ALWAYS A GOOD THING, but it's the best time to create change in your life!  It's a prime opportunity for breakthrough, transformation and overall growth of any sort in your life. 

The intention for all retreats is to use the power of the present moment to shed old ways of being and move into better and truer versions of ourselves.  We’ll use yoga & meditation to gain clarity & stillness and tailored workshops to learn & unlearn. Be it a belief or limitation around yourself, relationships, money or health, a backdrop from somewhere around the world will certainly accelerate your progress.

hi! I'm Rachael.

Artful Thinking is my baby and aims to concisely merge eastern and western philosophies to bring you the wisdom, actions and tools to facilitate change in your life. I believe science, spirituality and philosophy meet to create magic and has the potential to heal the world.

Regardless of age, beliefs, personality choice or career choice, better understanding the way we think and feel is the only guaranteed path to success and fulfilment. I work with people individually, as well as host workshops and retreats both locally and abroad.

Have a look at my video below to get a better idea of my philosophy or click here to read more about me or feel free to send me an email - I’d love to chat.

TESTIMONIALS 

 Working with Rachael has been one of the most powerful and empowering experiences. Her empathy, intuitiveness, and insight is incredible. She has an innate understanding of the mind and spirit. I had the privilege of attending one of her retreats and the experience was second to none. Her yoga classes were easy to follow for a novice like me yet the more experienced practitioners enjoyed them as well. She made meditation achievable for me and her workshops resonated with me long past the returning home. I recommend Rachael as a life coach and yoga instructor as Artful Thinking truly impacted my life.  Connie, 55 - Training Wheels, Business Owner

 Rachael's calm, non-judgemental and friendly demeanour creates a safe environment for people. She teaches people to analyze situations from different perspectives even though at times its difficult to see it. It's like rolling a bowling ball (your new viewpoint) down a hill for the first time (new way of thinking that needs to be carved out in your brain). Once the grooves are made it will slide down that new track much easier. This allows people to be more open minded and better able to handle the situation in a stronger more positive manner. Thank you, Rachael for sharing your talent.  Gina, 40, Project Manager and Mom

 Thanks to Rachael for plugging some mind blowing concepts into my head and heart this week. (Costa Rica Retreat) I have connected my head and my heart, my mind and my body… discussed taking responsibility, what it means to be strong, owning our power, choosing how we respond, creating our life story and much, much more.

 Rachael created a safe space for me to share and understand my true thoughts and feelings. She did it free of judgment, and at my own pace. I met Rachael in 2013, at a low point in my life. I could not let go of past failures and beliefs. Rachael helped me reinterpret and reevaluate my experiences and values. I became an active participant in my life, and a much happier person. She also gave me the tools I needed to move forward, and for that I am forever grateful.    - A. Baltodano, 28, Teacher

 Rachael pushed me to overcome my inertia of being ‘stuck’ and not making progress in my life. I can honestly say that i am different person now than two years ago, in almost every way. My confidence has increased dramatically and for the first time in a long time I have felt proud and optimist about my future.  Rachael is very professional while still being able to engage casually - it allows for open and honest dialogue. She gets to the salient points fast, no rambling, no blah blah blah, and creates structure in sessions. She asks tough probative questions that a client may feel reluctant to address for various reasons, but which are in most cases the obstacles that need to be acknowledged and health with to bring about real change. She employs various techniques that are tailored to her clients.  Julian, 42, Paramedic

 I started seeing Rachael a few years ago when I was going through a really rough time. I can honestly say that she's helped me much more than I imagined. I've grown into a person I never thought I could be. She is very insightful and great at helping you view things in another perspective. I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends and family. Thank you, Rachael, for helping me discover myself and become a more confident person.  Jessica, 26, Graphic Designer
