Liba
Markson

TRANSFORMATIONAL LIFE COACH

Transformational Coach, Liba Markson, will help facilitate your journey into true connection with yourself, H-shem, and others.

Liba takes a passionate stand for women to fully become the person they came to this earth to be, which always leads to more money, better relationships, peaceful parenting, higher creativity, and deep self-love and acceptance.

No matter how hard the past has been, with Liba’s intuitive, nurturing support, women who have been struggling for years to find fulfillment, success, expression, health, wealth, love, and more become unrecognizable and unimaginable to their previous selves.

Having someone connect with your soul and hold you to its highest vision, while nurturing and refining your desires, healing and transforming your human experience, with deep honesty, responsibility, and passion, especially when you waiver and vacillate, is what Liba offers with her warm and wise presence and coaching.

Liba has been totally engaged with self-development, human potential, and holistic health for as long as she can remember. In addition to being a writer and editor, she’s been transforming women’s lives individually and in groups for almost 10 years (truthfully most of her life). She was born in Cleveland, Ohio and lived up and down the East Coast of the U.S. until she made Aliyah 16 years ago with her husband and children.

“I truly believe in us women, individually and collectively, and the power of the feminine to heal our world and bring the geula. And that those of us alive today are here for a high, holy purpose. We’re meant for great things. The challenges and crises we face on a daily basis are calling forth our gifts and genius and forcing us to dig deeper, reach further, and step into our power in a completely unprecedented way. We need to do this work and we need each other.

Liba can be reached at libamarkson@gmail.com and occasionally on Facebook.

Chava Rochel
Saban

MUSIC FACILITATOR

Chava Rochel Saban will open your hearts and souls as you harmonize with the inspiring, beautiful surroundings and Shabbos.

A professionally trained classical violinist, Chava Rochel has performed all over the world since she was young: Europe, Scandinavia, and East Asia. At 18 she joined the New Haven Symphony while completing a Bachelors degree at Yale University. Chava Rochel also played in the Lausanne and Geneva Orchestras in Switzerland. In her early 20's a car accident halted her classical music career; however, her healing process guided her to singing and composing, belief in G-d and prayer, jazz, improvisation, and folk music. In her native town of S.F. she joined the After the End of the World Quartet, performing and recording with this experimental jazz ensemble. She recorded her first album, Eva Sola (1996), then created and toured with a multi- media performance piece, "the girl, the devil, her violin". After a two year period touring and studying Irish and Indian classical music, Chava Rochel settled in the land of my fathers, the land of Israel. Here her life began again as a Torah observant Jew. She married, raised a family, and continued writing music, performing and teaching.

Chava Rochel began composing original songs to the Psalms and other prayers, and recorded 7 more albums: Seeds or Dust, Yimale, Tetze Pua, B’Kashti, Ein Yeush, and Tshuva. Performances take her all over the country; weddings, women's gatherings, and music festivals such as the Moshav Country Fair, Tambourine Dream, and concerts in Moscow, Russia with her favorite music partner Tziona Achishena.

"Halleluhu" is her latest project.

“In it I pray will be the continuation of my goal to perform uplifting music that inspires one to direct one’s heart to G-d, to dance, and to spread the light and name of Rebbe Nachman, to hasten the final redemption.”
