Rachel Payne

About Me: 

Every since I was a very young girl, I have had a sense of being a representative for the voices that couldn't or wouldn't be heard in my community. I have found my place in the workings of our society by helping women and children find their voices through self-expression.

I am an artist, a performer, a poet, and a student of the heart. My dream for the future grows bigger everyday and with it, my belief in myself blossoms. But always, it includes remembering to create a space for healing and hope...for myself and others.

My Passions: 
art, voice, story, connections, and presence
My Challenges: 
the physical
My Vision for the Future: 
A world where it is safe enough to be unsafe. The Greeks called this temenos...it was where the deities were said to live.
My Areas of Expertise: 
expressive and intentional arts
