In the role of music minister she will share some of this “soetry” (songs and poetry) with the New Thought community.

Rashani lives in Ka`u, at the eco-sanctuary called Kipukamaluhia, which she has created and maintained for nearly two decades. Her life story is mythic, peopled by great spiritual teachers, pioneers of psychology, artists, poets and social reformers.

Yeshe Samden wrote, "Rashani's non-sectarian offerings are rooted in nature, the direct approach, ancient perennial wisdom traditions and several contemporary psycho-spiritual teachings. Her way is seasoned with the wisdom, warmth and compassion of one who, "coerced by grace" at a young age, has traversed the pathless journey since the age of twelve.

She invites people to befriend the unwanted circumstances and unpredictable conditions of life, to discover That which is beyond brokenness and conditioning; to relish the simple miracles in the most ordinary and unexpected places.....

With unconditioned Presence, she reminds us how to dissolve the veils/deconstruct the stories that often hide the intrinsic wholeness, radiance and boundless compassion abiding in all beings. Through example she joyously reminds us how to undo the knots of suffering so that every moment becomes an opportunity for awakening."

Rashani was ordained by Thich Nhat Hanh into The Order of Interbeing in 1990. 

She spent time at Plum Village every summer for several years and had the great honor of opening his retreats and public dharma talks in France and throughout the U.S. from 1989 until 1996. 

With Thây, she co-authored the book go slowly, breath and smile, which was published earlier this year. Rashani will be sharing about her time with Thich Nhat Hanh and how his teachings influenced her life. She will also read a few short excerpts from the book.​

Seven of the fifteen albums of songs and poetry which Rashani has recorded were inspired by his teachings.
