Shahar Rabi is one of the more brilliant and creative people I have ever met, and I have met some brilliant and creative people. Having had the opportunity to spend significant time with him over several years I have been impressed by his powerful presence that is significantly integrated with an enormous intelligence and ability to sense the other and the world. I recommend him unconditionally as a psychotherapist and an inner guide.

Dr. Sean Park

Shahar has an extraordinary way of embodying and teaching how the creative soul and the disciplined mind work together in transformation.  He brings together old school spirituality with succinct and practical insights into how to work with human heart, mind, and body in these challenging times.  This is a rare gift.  If you're looking to work with someone with deep skill and compassion for the dark spaces, Shahar unreservedly has the sincerity, courage, and humour for pointing to how you can shine a light in the world.

Shahar's achievements as an intellectual, activist, contemplative, and therapist are immense and extraordinary. He is one of the few people that I have known who can fully encompass such a wide range of human capacities. In particular, I have always been impressed by the quality of presence that he manifests with people. He has a rare level of ability to sense, feel, perceive, attune, and intuit with respect to himself, in relation to others, and to the biosphere.

After more than 30 years working internationally at C-level within the Healthcare delivery and financing sectors. I have had the pleasure of working with many hospital system administrators, surgeon's, general practitioners, clinicians, therapists and network managers and will attest that Dr. Rabi is in terms of quality, commitment and capability, positioned well within the top percentile. His enthusiasm, knowledge and method of approach both as a therapist and as a business leader meets the highest levels of commendation. Shahar has tremendous integrity, he cares and he can be relied upon to do whatever he puts his mind to. A great team player, he fits well into a corporate environment and he delivers on time and within budget. Statistics consistently show that in his field as an Addiction recovery therapist he has few peers and the way that he positions himself is selfless and for the good of the assignment. He has a very easy to work with style and a considerate manner. He is a good and intelligent listener and never short of an opinion. These qualities, allied to his strong intellect, rich and diverse background make for a very strong recipe for success. I would not hesitate to recommend him to business leaders and practitioners within his sector.

Insightful, perceptive and compassionate, Dr. Rabi is a harbinger of transformation. I have had the pleasure of working collaboratively leading workshops with Shahar and have witnessed his capacity to hold a sacred space in group process work. He brings creativity, wisdom and warmth to all he works with and I wholeheartedly recommend him as a therapist.

Shahar is a gifted therapist. He sees the issues quickly and moves into action, always engaging the client in a very full and complete way and with utter respect for the client's core integrity. He leaves a lasting impression and often the client will remember many days later what transpired and you can see that the client is now almost imprinting some of these key moments and ideas into his or her thought habits.  More important perhaps, Shahar is a genuinely warm and decent fellow. Clients and colleagues alike feel safe in his company and we are all propelled by his demeanor to participate. Some of us are lucky. The unavoidable path, the thing that we were born to do becomes evident and we follow that star. When you put all of his studies and interests and work and character together, Shahar emerges as a Master Teacher.

Working with Dr. Shahar Rabi, and experiencing his passion, insight and drive has been a profound joy. His work as the clinical director at The Orchard Recovery Centre is motivated by a genuine desire to see clients heal, and his work outside of the recovery centre is informed by his strong belief that everyone has an innate connection to the spiritual; his strength as a therapist lies in helping people creating the inner conditions for that conduit to thrive. I am thrilled to be working in collaboration with this extraordinary guide as we move our clients through trauma and into embodied wholeness. 


Shahar is someone who I know I can trust completely. He has unshakable integrity and accountability with his word. I have had the honour of getting to know him both personally and professionally and I feel it is a great privilege to know him and receive his warmth, wisdom, and playfulness. I highly recommend him as a therapist, or in any professional capacity.

Working with Shahar in our community, I have seen a professional with a unique devotion to facilitating mental wellness and empowering people with the tools of awareness and conscious daily living. I've witnessed Shahar's passion for meaningful one-on-one and group encounters as both a participant and a co-facilitator, and have benefited personally from both his professional guidance and his personal dedication.

Over and over again, I have seen Shahar's work create positive change in peoples lives, by helping them heal from trauma and addiction, and reconnect to their most essential self. Through deep listening, meaningful inquiry and effective communication, he has taught me empowering tools that help me interpret the call of my soul, and embody my true essence.
