Dr. Miriam Maron, Ph.D., B.S.N., R.N., M.A. welcomes you to an experience brimming with deep wisdom and powerful music that promote healing and hope, culled primarily from the ancient Jewish mystery wisdom. In this realm, we explore Kabbalistic teachings to nurture our souls, as well as the magic of song, chant, and other modes of healing sound and sacred movement. In addition to writing and singing spiritual music, Miriam is also an author and a spiritual healer and teacher who creates and integrates ritual, ceremony, meditation and movement that unify body, mind and soul, allowing one to fully take in the teachings. She facilitates intensives in Jewish Shamanic healing across the U.S., Canada, Israel and Europe. Her rendition of a traditional Hassidic melody that appears on her CD "Wings of Light" was selected as a major segment of a motion picture soundtrack for the recently-released foreign film: "Black Prince," a drama based on the illustrious biography of the notorious 19th-century Russian poet, Pushkin. The film won First Prize at the New York Independent Film Festival. Through this website you will discover information about Dr. Maron's workshops, her book and articles, and also sample her soothing and empowering music.
"Miriam's beautiful voice, like her presence, is an oasis of peace. It appears to rise from the sorrow of humankind, transforming itself into an enveloping embrace, a place that soothes like a mother's gentle love. For the moment, one is safe, the world stops hovering and menacing, and Miriam's song makes us aware that there are other dimensions within us that are just as real and present as the fear, the noise and the challenge of our everyday lives -- if only we allow ourselves to summon them. Miriam is a path to the gifts of our soul to which we can return and refresh ourselves in our sometimes wearying journey."

Rabbi Miriam Maron is a Soul Healer who far exceeds the expectations of those who seek her knowledge and counsel. She is a magician par-excellence with the inner wisdom and stamina to boldly take people into the otherwise unfathomable depths of their soul-self, and there, at the very vortex of their persona, to heal, to repair, to transform, and finally to emerge anew as a Phoenix rising out of the ashes. With her gentle voice and soothing chant, she leads us bravely and unafraid into the fiery flames of spiritual alchemy, where she guides us toward wholesome transformation that morphs us from murkiness to clarity, from darkness to light, and from stuckness to liberation — or, as they say in the Native American tradition: from hummingbird to condor. Her songs more than lift our spirits, they vibrate their way deep within our heart of hearts straight into the Holy of Holies, and there, at the very core of our selfhood, they empower and inspire, enrich and endow us with sacred breath of Wind, Water, and Fire: spirit, fluidity, and passion. With her extraordinary musical talent and genius, she gathers and gleans an ever-fresh harvest of songs seeded by the ancients and renders them into contemporary theme and vernacular so that their voices resonate through hers, and ultimately through ours.
Rabbi Miriam is a teacher in the tradition of her ancestors, in the spirit of the Hebrew prophetesses and wise-women whose clarity of vision and intuitive knowing wove the thread of fortitude and celebration that has preserved a people and its traditions against all odds for more than 4,000 years. Her teachings are delivered not from her lips but from the deepest recesses of her heart, carried to the listener on wings of conviction. She is an erudite scholar of both her people’s written and oral traditions, and a pioneer in restoring to her people the long-neglected mystery wisdom of Jewish shamanism, which she teaches in her seminars and workshops and practices in her private healing and mentoring sessions.
Rabbi Miriam inspires by her presence, her poise, her countenance, and by the deep Life Knowledge that is ever-blossoming within her, sprouting forth fresh learning and innovative insight in every encounter. Healer, mentor, mother, teacher, musician, singer, songwriter, shamanic practitioner, ceremony and ritual leader, sacred dancer, Rabbi Miriam is a creative artist who skillfully blends her knowledge and talent to formulate entrancing movement and dance that, along with her teachings, music, and ceremonies, have captivated and moved the hearts of audiences and participants of all ages and cultural backgrounds across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Israel. She is a gift to be treasured, honored, and respected, a valuable guide to us all as we meander across the narrow, foggy bridge of our lives.
