   “Rappaport’s collection of 365 Meditations is a gem.  It was given to me as a gift from a yoga student several years ago.  There is the consistent thread of true yogic wisdom throughout…The author contributes her own wisdom relaying her experience of play, duality, sensitivity, gravity and the infinite.  For me, Rappaport’s voice is in line with the other teachers I connect with most:  Vanda Scaravelli, Sandra Sabatini, Angela Farmer and Victor Van Kooten.”
