"Dear Rabbi Chani,
What a wonderful year you have given me and the family. I couldn’t have known, when I asked you to take Emily, Jonathan and I on a journey into Judaism: ending with our Bar and Bat Mitzvahs that it would be so rich. This experience has been a wonderful family expedition into, our heritage, our family history and each other. How you inspired spiritual conversation and thought with an 18 year old, a 14 year old and of course an adult is a testament to your divine calling. The spiritual growth, the torah and learning Hebrew and the actual Tri-Mitzvah couldn’t have been possible without your teaching and counsel. I really can’t imagine anyone else keeping us so inspired.
So I am grateful to you for more than I can say: a deeper understanding of my heritage, my children and my creator. Your relationship as the family Rabbi is embedded in us and I thank you for the continuous contact and guidance during this year after.
You are truly a blessing. Hedy"

“I was skeptical about coaching, but now I'm a believer. I've done a good bit of therapy in my lifetime, and grew as a result. Coaching helped me at a time when I needed a more specific focus. Chani helped me really zero in on what I wanted and needed. She didn't let me stray from this focus. She made me come back to it, breathe into it and discover what I needed to survive and thrive. Some powerful images emerged that continue to help me.”

"When a parent passes on it is a difficult time, a time to be able to turn to the support, guidance and wisdom of a spiritual leader. For me, at the time of my mothers passing, I had Chani Getter to be my support, guide, spiritual leader and creator of the funeral service that served as the last rite for my mom. Chani had the skill and grace to be the perfect person for my needs. She was able to navigate the difficult waters that existed between myself and my sibling, creating a funeral that honored all needs. Chani delivered a beautiful, meaningful ceremony and was accessible to all who attended, blending the family tradition with more modern ideas that resonated for me."

“Chani Getter has challenged my perspectives through patient guidance and insightful questioning. Throughout my personal coaching discussions with Chani, she has continually proven herself to be a coach who practices mindfulness and compassion for all fellow human beings on a continual basis while sharing her lessons learned as solutions to be gained by all with a universal consciousness."

“Working with Chani has been a true pleasure – and helped us to create a deeply meaningful baby naming ceremony that we and our families will always remember.
When the due-date for our baby boy approached, we reached out to Chani to support us with a name giving ceremony. As an American-German, Jewish-Buddhist couple we wanted to be respectful of both our values and family traditions – while creating a significant moment in which we, our families, and our friends would welcome a new person to this world and community. Chani played a crucial role in helping us master these cross-cultural and cross-religious hurdles.
We truly appreciated Chani’s thoughtfulness and her openness to our needs and ideas during the preparation phase. Her initial questions helped not only single out key elements for the ceremony but also invited us to step back and recognize the significance that the arrival of our first child had for our lives. The actual ceremony combined a largely traditional Jewish service with elements of Buddhist ceremony that looked at the miracle of birth and the importance of community from deeper interfaith perspective.
Bringing this ceremony to life has been a great co-creation. We can highly recommend Chani.”

“Engaging Chani was an important step for me to take in my work with issues such as of self-care, self esteem, creating balance, and living an authentic life. Chani’s soft spoken passion, purity of heart, and razor sharp intuition has helped guide me toward stepping into my own power in many areas.”

Thank you so much for the wonderful funeral service you conducted for Linda, me and our family and friends. We have been surrounded by love throughout and your help has been an important part of that. Yours, Dave Evans"

"Since you visited my home to set up organization, I feel as though I moved to a larger home. Your brilliant organizational skills helped me settle my possessions into a designated space that makes sense. It is now a breeze getting my home in order, after my children have had enough for one day turning the place up side down, inside out. It is not only your organizational skills that you came with; you come with compassion, understanding, and with inspiration. I expected that you would help me maximize the space that I have. I didn't expect the wonderful calming effect organization would have in as well as out of the home. Thank You Chani!"
“Working with Chani was an incredible experience. I admit to being skeptical when I started about the touchy-feeliness of life coaching, but it was eye-opening and extremely powerful. She gave me a lot of insights into myself that I believe will help me a great deal in the future.”
