"Rako offers a unique integration of power and gentleness. His speaking, facilitation, and event convening carry a gravitas of deep presence and caring. He has the ability to move group energy to meaningful conversation, emergent insights, and new understanding. Over the past five years, I have experienced Rako in a variety of settings, and, every time, I come away moved - emotionally, mentally, and spiritually."
-Adam Leonard, Executive Development, Google
“Rako is an exceptionally wise leader, facilitator, process consultant, and learning system designer. He has consistently led groups to access the collective intelligence, wisdom and empathy needed to move through crises or engage an impactful mission. He is also a deeply experienced healer, quite deft at supporting individuals and groups to heal themselves, integrate past challenges, and envision new futures. We all have something important to learn from Rako, and his profound humility ensures that he will constantly learn from all of us, too.”

"Rako is an extraordinary being: an accomplished artist and poet, a master convener, a spiritual adept and mystic, an academic, and, most of all, a leader. He can build bridges between generations, worldviews, and identities, and has demonstrated the ability to inspire youth, people of color, and administrators to become interested in transformation and discovering their own unique potential."
-Edward West, Founder and CEO, Hylo; Co-Founder, Impact Hub Oakland
"Having 'watched' Rako these past years and having had the privilege of hearing his personal and familial stories of healing, I sensed that someday he would be called to become a full-time healer. While undergoing initiation into this shamanic healing work, I've witnessed how he approaches this work with reverence and utmost care and respect for all, the Seen and Unseen. I've watched him create spaces to help students in developing self-awareness and learning how to integrate a sense of the sacred into their lives. It's been my privilege to learn from his gentle and powerful facilitation skills in building a sense of communion and community in groups large and small."
