Praise / Testimonials

Working with Shulamit has allowed me to connect the dots in the physical and spiritual realms. Just noticing where I get stuck is an important practice and helpful. Her journey on my behalf connected me to the key components of my true self. Integrated, healthy, strong, surrounded by helpers, and full of compassion. I am here to live joyfully through my life’s purpose and am grateful for the time spent with Shulamit. ~ PS, Ohio

I have been a student of Shulamit Elson’s teachings for over 2 decades (and her neighbor for several years). She has consistently exhibited a profound sense of being rooted to the earth, kindness, compassion, authenticity, generosity of spirit and an uncanny accuracy in her intuitive abilities. Shulamit approaches situations with equanimity & deep insight. She explains her technique well and makes self-discovery an attainable endeavor. It is a pleasure spending time with Shulamit & a gift to be in her presence. ~ JK


Thank you for this evening, Shulamit! It spoke to clearly to me and to what I’m feeling at the present moment. I’m a highly anxious person for the last seven or so years, and this event isn’t making it easy for me to contain it. I appreciate the wonderful tool you recommended with the self observation and breaking the narrative of fearful, anxious thought patterns. I think it’s just the tool I needed. What a gift. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are a blessing and I’m so grateful to have you, and your wisdom, in my life. ~ JB, Brooklyn


Thank you so much for inviting me to your Immersive Sound Bath Meditation. I didn’t head in with any pre-conceived notions. I don’t consider myself to be particularly spiritual at all, and so I thought it would be important to enter with a fully open mind. I’m glad I did. Though I have been to a number of meditation/spiritual-adjacent workshops and sessions over the years, yours was particularly meaningful. There is something deeply compelling about the simplicity of it all, the lack of frills. Perhaps above all, your workshop has faith in the novice’s ability to contribute to the project–and that’s empowering. The group exercises were pretty brilliant. It took me from a being-healed to a healer. Who knew that was just what I needed? ~ SE, Brooklyn


Thank you for sharing MediSounds at the Braided Way Retreat. When we did the group sounds I constantly saw moving colors and have been translating it with paint to a canvas! It is quite different from what I usually do. I am grateful for the inspiration ~ MM, Ohio


Shulamit, I want to express my deep gratitude for all that you brought to our retreat weekend. It was so marvelous to get to know you and to spend time with you. I was thrilled and inspired by your presentations. You presence, composure, wisdom and polish were more than I imagined. I knew you were like our “key note presenter”, and I was so proud of your presentation. ~ Michael Olin-Hitt


If we can agree that everything in the world is vibrating at its core level, then you will understand that the sound resonance Shulamit interprets sheds a light on things you already know that reside deep down inside of you. Her guidance points us to a pathway forward to a clearer recognition of who we are and what we can achieve. Confronting a challenging business situation, the work with Shulamit and MediSounds sound meditations produced clarity and peace of mind, integral to my finding successful solutions. ~ Ron Andrew, entrepreneur, professional hockey player (retired), New York City


Shulamit is one of the foremost practitioners of sound-voice therapy in the world today. Her talent is matched by an equally deep sense of compassion for her clients. ~ Mitchell Gaynor, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Weill-Medical College of Cornell University,  former Director of Medical Oncology at the Strang Cornell Cancer Prevention Center, author of Sounds of Healing and Healing Essence


Around these holidays, I am having a difficult time. Even through a cell phone, the healing sounds really helped and took me to a new place. I am very grateful for Shulamit’s gift, which she so generously shares.  ~ N.Y.


Working with Shulamit’s MediSounds has helped me touch and heal inner places that were inaccessible by other methods. The healing process has been gentle, compassionate and liberating. I have grown in ways that I could not have imagined, but am very grateful for. ~ Jenny, Retired, Texas


As a person who suffers the effects of post traumatic stress, I found the MediSounds Sound Meditation to be very effective in helping me relax. Thank you. ~ Julie, US Marine, Retired, Semper Fi, Sacramento, CA


My daughter dissociated from parts of her body at an early age and regressed to a withdrawn child-like personality in later life. But, as an adult, when she began to listen daily to MediSounds sound meditations, the sounds gently penetrate the cocoon she has built, and they have brought the warmth of the sun into the core of her being like nothing else can or does.
~ Leila R.


Since our work together I started to see more clearly, to respect and even honor my humanity. I started to accept that it’s not wrong to mistake. Duality it isn’t wrong, nor right, just the way it is. Ah!!!! ~ Pamela, Model, Chile


When I first came back from Vietnam I slept with a gun under my pillow for a long time. Gradually as I utilized the sound practice, the anxiety and dread began to dissipate, and within a short period of time, through the continued use of sound I was able to not feel the desire to sleep with the gun under my pillow. ~ Raymond, Vietnam Veteran


My work with Shulamit has taken me from doubt, indecision and inner turmoil to a place of certainty, balance and inner peace. ~ Leila, Florida


In what has been a fairly short space of time, I have found the combination of MediSounds, Soulsongs and self-observation to have been a powerful combination for taking me rapidly out of my rather stuck state of self-pity and allowing me to see the way forward to being a human being in better balance and able to fulfill my life’s purpose with more clarity, with a sense of joy and excitement once again. ~ Richard, Acupuncturist, England


Shulamit asked me in one of our sessions: How do you go for comfort when the body no longer offers it and leaves you feeling betrayed by the very thing you’ve counted on? This statement deeply effected me because of its truth. It has only been through the sounds and the MediSounds sound meditation that I have felt a higher, deeper comfort offered. I don’t know where it comes from and can honestly say that I don’t completely understand but none the less — feel ! ~ Sonya, Artist, British Columbia


Most of the participants at Shulamit’s presentation commented on how calm and connected they felt after participating in the sound therapy session. Many of them related a feeling of being much more relaxed and less anxious. We are looking forward to having her visit us again to work more with our facility and our guests who are in crisis. ~ Resource Recovery Center of Orange County, March 2023 Newsletter
