Shulamit Elson

For the past 32 years, Shulamit has pioneered MediSounds™ meditation, a practice based on sacred vocal sounds described in 13th-century literature, which promotes physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being.

This 32-year journey began for her in 1985, during a life-changing meditation. During this meditation she found herself impelled to make a series of unusual vocal sounds.

In the following weeks and months, as she continued to practice these sounds, she became aware of the power residing in the vibrations of the human voice to awaken consciousness, connect to the authentic self, and influence the physical healing process. 

Eventually, Shulamit came across literature written in the 13th century in Andalusia, Spain that explained the power of each of the vocal tones she had been using. From this textual basis and the modern science of Super String theory, she developed MediSounds, her powerful meditative system to address a variety of common human challenges.

Before Medisounds became her life’s work, Shulamit spent over 20 years in the corporate world, including as Manager of Training and Development at Sandoz Inc., and Director of Organizational Communications at Hill & Knowlton, as well as President of Conceptual Enterprises, a consulting firm offering solutions for issues related to communication, training and organizational change and development.
