As a creative consultant, I spend most days working from my home in Ojai, CA, helping others to clarify and elevate their brands. Nothing energizes me more than mapping ways to create the feelings of freedom, peace and abundance in our everyday, or by identifying what that means to each of us. Much of that is what I share here, but for a more individualized conversation, please see my offerings over at rachelgarahan.com.
In my own life, I value an eclectic, experimental and un-fussy approach to whole living. I’ve backpacked through Australasia for nearly two years on my own, spent a month camping up and down the California coast, road-tripped for 3 weeks from LA to Charleston and back, gone skydiving twice, bungee jumping once (never again) and leapt off an 80-foot cliff. I’ve spent 30 days meditating at a Zen Buddhist monastery and traveled high and low through many countries, most recently spending two months on the beaches of Nicaragua with my husband, 6 month-old and our two pups. In short, I believe life is full of exciting opportunities to engage our full spectrum of senses and emotions, and that the adventure has always just begun.
An open book, I love to share my favorite brands, products, hidden gems, and experiences worth repeating. Check out my resource pages– I update them regularly to include any new finds I think you’d love.
With the relaunch of this site, I’m trying to blog weekly but since that may not always happen, you can see the daily on instagram (@onepartgypsy), or connect with me directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you– and am always looking for creative ways to collaborate!
