Drumsong Sanctuary for The Soul and Integral Counseling Services

Miriam Lieberman, MA is a Licensed Professional Counselor offering a unique blend of psychological, spiritual and ceremonial healing methods. Since 1996 I have worked with children, adults and families blending person centered, somatic, gestalt, family therapy, systems theory and shamanic counseling techniques.

It is my understanding that psychology can heal about 60% of the dis-ease that people carry with them into adulthood. The remainder of the healing must come through right action based on inner spiritual guidance.

Learning to respect each other as sacred human beings and to be in right relations with ourselves, and others, is the foundation of my practice. This journey looks different for each individual or family based on their point of departure. Over the past 20 years, as well as working in the field of Child and Family Therapy, I have had the opportunity to study with two Cherokee Healers, Grandpa Roberts in California in the 80’s and Will Rockingbear since 2000. Out of gratitude to these elders I make available to this community what they so graciously bestow upon me.

I am an approved teacher of the Love and Logic Parenting and Teaching curriculum. These strategies help parents and teachers regain authority in the home and classroom and teach children responsibility by allowing them to learn from the age appropriate choices they make and the consequences of those choices. These strategies are taught individually and in a group format.

It is my understanding that psychology can heal about 60% of the dis-ease that people carry with them into adulthood. The remainder of the healing must come through right action based on inner spiritual guidance. Psychological insight combined with compassionate action from the clarity of our deep spiritual core (the part of us that transcends our personality) offers the opportunity to truly transform our lives. This is what the native people call “growing corn in one’s life”. Anyone can heal anything when they state what they want, what they are willing to do about it and keep their word in doing so.
 

The first patient that I saw before a Cherokee Indian Soul Retrieval Ceremony was very depressed and not functioning. When I talked with her a day after the ceremony there was a significant difference: She was much less depressed and could function better. She could tell me the parts of herself split off and what she needed to do to have them remain with her. In an hour she had discovered what can take years to determine in traditional talk therapy. Her therapy then focused on how she would do the things that she had agreed to do. It took about 6 months for her to complete therapy and be off medication.

I find that patients who participate in a ceremony early in treatment proceed to heal in about 6 -12 months. Those who have been in therapy for a long time and then participate in a ceremony find that they need very little therapy after that, perhaps a month. My patients found this Soul Retrieval ceremony created deep and lasting changes in themselves that they did not get from other methods.

Soul Retrieval
This ceremony is performed by most indigenous cultures whenever illness or trauma (physical, emotional, spiritual) occur to retrieve lost or stolen pieces of the soul. Some signs of soul loss are: feeling like part of you is missing, feeling lost, enduring sadness and/or anger, feeling disconnected, the loss of skills or “know how” that you once had. .

Cutting Ceremony
Have you ever asked yourself, “Whose thought was that?” and found out it was someone else’s? We can be under the influence of another’s energy (in the physical or spirit world) and need assistance cutting those chords that drain our energy and impact our lives negatively. Once cut we can restore balance and increase our personal power.
More Information
Fire Ceremony
In this ceremony we work with the fire to release old beliefs, patterns, relationships, self- concepts or other things that impede our growth and forward movement. Once free of these self-imposed limitations we can consciously choose our beliefs and behaviors taking 100% responsibility for our choices. In this way our lives can “grow corn” and we can observe ourselves living our dreams.
More Information
House Clearings and Blessings  Often souls stuck in the earth plane stay in places familiar to them and disrupt the lives of the inhabitants of that space. We can assist these beings to crossover with their “lights” and clear the space in question. Ceremonies to bless a new home, business, relationship, or transition or to connect with the benevolent spirits of the land in question are available.
