She holds regular retreats with her husband Ben and works with teachers near and far to deepen her understanding of what it means to be well in the 21st century. Through her nutritional therapy coaching, she works with individuals to rebalance and re-empower themselves through holistic nutrition, mindful self-practice and daily ritual.​


Raaji is therapist, healer and artist. She is trained in several modalities, including different types of body and healing work, trauma healing (after P.

She has spent time in the Amazon where she studied with Curanderos, and is also learning from the grandmothers of South America about their way of living, praying and healing. She is also a trained dancer and movement teacher, a musician and painter.

Raaji’s main focus is to provide a safe space in which everyone can explore, uncover and expand into an inherent and authentic flow with themselves and with life. Her work is known for its honest integrity, gentle yet profound healing, and authentic and embodied empowerment.
