The Ray of Light Story
Ray of Light was born when Rachel Nokes, yoga, and India, all came together. A beautiful, secluded sanctuary nestled between ocean and mountain in the Illawarra escarpment on the south coast of NSW.
Since yoga became central to Rachels life over fifteen years ago, she has taught in places as diverse as rural England, coastal Australia, and the ever-fascinating India. While yoga continues to bring joy to her own life and others, she simultaneously works as a therapist observing the pain, stress and struggle of modern life.
Ray of Light was created to bring together Rachels training as an accredited yoga teacher, yoga therapist, psychotherapist, and ayurvedic lifestyle consultant, to provide a space and a service where ancient wisdoms relieve the stress of contemporary living.
Business with Heart Bali Retreat
November 3rd – 8th 2019
Recreating our brave new world of business, in paradise
You’re not crazy for believing that business is too hard sometimes.
Women in business are adept at being excellent and over-qualified while simultaneously never being good enough. It’s our cultural inheritance at this specific moment in history.
It’s not easy to thrive in business with your heart intact. Too often, women with heart and integrity believe that business is a compromise. That to earn excellent coin, we need to compromise our values and beliefs, act out of integrity, or pretend to be someone different. Business can be hugely tricky to navigate when your motivations are far larger than just making money.
It’s more than possible to have amazing strengths, significant experience, professional accolades, and clients who adore you, and still be at a loss about where your profit disappears to.
So many of us women in business start with little-to-no marketing or business skills. We’re experts in our domain, but not necessarily in business. We learn fast and pick things up ‘on the trot’, but know there’s more to know, if only we could find the time for learning, and the teachers to make this easy and fun.
When we go to typical business development events, we feel patronised, misunderstood, and oh-so-alone. New age business events aren’t much better, being high on the feel-good factor and low on practical, actionable, useful advice.
We’ve had enough of seeing so many talented women in business who are lacking support, quality training and information to grow their businesses, and who are constantly working too hard for too little. That’s why we put our heads and hearts together to create Business with Heart.
