Kohenet Rachel works to create meaningful connections that extend beyond personal and cultural differences. She facilitates workshops and devotion in a wide variety of Jewish and multi-faith settings from Burning Man to Greenbelt Festival.
She is co-creator of Yelala (www.yelala.co.uk), and is the Spiritual Educator for Sadeh, the UK’s only Jewish farm and environmental community, based in Kent. In our Saturday Circle, we have a unique opportunity to learn how to identify feminine archetypes that lie in sacred texts, exploring them through experiential practice, silent meditation and devotional chant, sacred text study, and discussion.
As a professional storyteller, Rachel has written and performed for Billy Bragg, BBC Radio 3, the London Symphony Orchestra, and is a winner of the UK Young Storyteller of the Year. Raised on a stew of immigrant oral tradition, English folk music, and concrete jungle, we invite you to join us on Friday evening for a Tisch of Tales, in which Rachel will share some of her favourite spoken word, story, and song. Poetic Jewish liturgy often refers to the Sabbath herself as a Bride or a Queen. A Tisch is an East-European Jewish custom of welcoming the Sabbath Bride with joy, a special treat from the “Queen of the New Wave of storytellers” (BBC Radio 3).
