Hi Friends,

I am Rachel, and I am a poet, mystic, dreamer, lover and darkly soulful cheerleader. Many people know me as "Rachel Kann, poet," and thus, think of me as a person of words...I'm flattered and grateful, and...yes! Of course, I *love* words...but verbal language is just one form of communication.

The truth is, what I really like is *communication itself!* In myriad manifestations. Of course, that means wordlessly, as well: in the form of dance classes I teach, in the form of meditation, in the form of energy work...

I am currently excited about "The Quickening" - a visual album made up of my poetry videos. We have two more videos left to complete on this epic journey! Just two more! I am pumped.

My unique interests and experience give me a distinct perspective and a wild variety of traditions to choose from when addressing reality.

This comes out in my expression of self, including but not limited to my poetry on the page and on the stage, as well as in videos...poetry videos are the main thing I am excited to share with you, but that's just the beginning...which is why I love this Patreon concept, (thank you for existing, Patreon!) It allows me to express myself in a diversity of ways, which is the absolute best for me.

*I've performed my poetry at events like TEDx and with artists and leaders such as daKAH Hip Hop Orchestra, Marianne Williamson, Saul Williams, and Rahzel, at venues such as Disney Concert Hall, Royce Hall, The Broad Stage and The San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts, as well as spiritual and sacred spaces like Jewlicious Fest X aboard The Queen Mary, Agape Spiritual Center and Sinai Temple, conferences such as Women's Visionary Congress and Visionary Convergence, and festivals like Lucidity Fest and the Vans Warped Tour.

*I am a teaching artist. I was named UCLA Extension Writers' Program's Instructor of the Year on 2017. I am a poetry workshopper and editor with experience around the world from the Middle East to Europe and back again, as well as here in the USA, at places like UCLA Extension Writers' Program, UC Riverside Palm Desert's Low Residency MFA, Cal Berkeley, Cal State Long Beach, and the State of California's Juvenile Correctional System, to name just a few. 

*I am currently in process to become ordained as a Hebrew Priestess through Rabbi Jill Hammer and Taya Shere's Kohenet program.

*I wrote the poem "What to Tell the Children," which got attention through shares both online and in person.

*I love learning new stuff in the realms of science and the mystical, as well as human behavior, and I love sharing my discoveries. 

*I got this wounded healer thing on lock. And while it hasn't always been a bed of roses for me, I am super grateful for the perspective I have been afforded. I have background experience in energy healing, movement healing, Jewish mystical traditions, and apprenticeship experience in ceremonial work. Long story short, what I am saying is I love helping you heal. And I love giving (solicited) advice. Love it. LOVE IT.

My mission in allllll these different areas remains the same: To Set Your Soul Loose. To Help You Get Free.

So, I am excited to create new poems: in written form, audio form, video form, and through live performance.

I am excited to workshop with you one-on-one. I am excited to tell you about the latest things that are blowing my mind. I am excited for you to open your heart and to respond in kind with heartfelt advice. And I am excited to dance with you!

This is gonna be great.

Love,
Rachel

Again, you will have the option to mix and match these rewards from month to month, the choice is always yours

This brings us so much closer to the vision! We are creating a Visual Album of Poetry Videos called "The Quickening." With this money, I can collaborate with people of great talent in the realm of filmmaking, like my director Bradford L Cooper, and up his remuneration!
