Brooke Medicine Eagle the following year and also met and studied with Joanna Macy around that same time. She was an assistant to Elisabeth Kübler-Ross and her home near Cahors became the first Elisabeth Kübler Ross center in France.

Rashani skillfully interweaves her passion for earth-based spirituality and shamanism with self inquiry, the direct approach, process-oriented & Buddhist psychology, the Deep Feminine, mindfulness practice
and several decades of immersion in nondual traditions. She’s also a mother, musician, builder,
architect, farmer, grief counselor, the author of several books and the founder of Kipukamaluhia
