Rakhel Shapiro has over a decade of dedicated mindfulness practice in the insight meditation and Unified Mindfulness traditions, including intensive silent retreat practice and work with a mentor. Rakhel’s approach is based on fostering a complete practice, drawing from Shinzen Young’s "four quadrants" of practice: to appreciate self and world, transcend self and world, transform self and world, and express the benefits of practice in our thoughts, words, and actions. She balances an insight/liberation driven focus with cultivation of deep compassion, empowering students with the sensory clarity to transcend unnecessary suffering, and the qualities of heart that nourish an authentic, connected, meaningful life. In everyday language, this is training in seeing clearly and caring deeply. Rakhel specializes in one-on-one Meditation Mentorship for emotional and relational intelligence, living by authentic values, and deep insight practice. Her work is informed by specialized training in attachment-informed mindfulness practices and Motivational Interviewing, and the perspective that it is through self acceptance that we change. She creates safe space for mentees to freely and deeply explore themselves and their lives, to simultaneously accept all the parts of themselves exactly as they are and also grow towards their ideals. Rakhel studies with Shinzen Young, and studied with George Haas for many years. Rakhel is a certified Meditation Mentor through George Haas and JoAnna Harper's Mentor Training and Certification Program at Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society and Mettagroup, and a teacher in Shinzen's Unified Mindfulness system. She is currently pursuing a PhD in clinical psychology.
