More about Rachel:

As a life coach, profound healer, intuitive counselor and workshop facilitator, Rachel is here to assist others along the path of living fully connected as the greatest version of their “Radiant Self”. 

Through her abilities to be a channel of Divine information, she helps one to heal and revel into their own unique gifts and embrace the art of living life from the foundation of pleasure and purpose.

The times are calling out for you to embody your existence here on Earth as the greatest love story ever to be told. Rachel believes that within every individual is endless potential, a great source of medicine and mystery reminding us that we are a once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece — here to be forever cherished. 

Rachel is seen as a Floral Alchemist and Medicine Woman offering the healing languages of plant spirit medicine through flower essence therapy. She works closely with the flora on a regular basis, while out crafting flower essences within wild landscapes, making floral mandalas and creating her one-of-a-kind floral installation pieces for sacred gatherings, collaborations, events, photo shoots and home altar spaces. She is here raising awareness for the therapeutics that lie within Nature’s gifts of flowers.

“It is my greatest passion to celebrate YOU and your birthright to thrive and come alive in an empowered life of emotional freedom, radical joy and revolutionary love.” – Rachel Maroudas

Issue three of The Quarterly tells the stories of those groups of people, brought together by love or circumstances, showing the contrasts in the lives of others that surround us all on a daily basis.
