Today I have the honor of speaking with Shulamit Elson, and we begin the show hearing about her experience in losing her daughter to leukemia just over a year ago and how she moved through the tremendous grief of this experience. This flows into a conversation about Shulamit’s own journey into finding her soul’s purpose and the healing sounds that form the basis of her work today. She is the creator of MediSounds Meditation, and the Director of MediSounds, as well as the founder of The Great Octave Foundation. She has taught MediSounds Meditation and vocal sound-based mindfulness practices worldwide, in places as diverse as Esalen and Omega Institutes, Tibet House in NYC, meditation workshops in Andalusia, Spain and Oxford, England, the Sri Auribindo Auroville community in India, and in Israel. Under the auspices of The Great Octave Foundation, her activities have included work throughout Israel during a particularly fraught time of conflict in 2002, HIV positive men and women in Mexico City, and returning Iraq war veterans. In 2001 Shulamit was honored to give the keynote address in Washington, DC to introduce US Congressional Bill H. R. 808 to create a Cabinet Level Department of Peace.
Prior to creating MediSounds Meditation, Shulamit had a 20-year career in business consulting and investment banking. Her positions included Manager of Training and Development at Sandoz Inc. and Director of Organizational Communications at the public relations firm Hill & Knowlton. As President of her own independent consulting firm, Shulamit advised on issues of communication and organizational development at such corporations as Ford Motor Company, United States Lines, Nabisco Brands, and Irving Trust.
Shulamit is the author of the highly acclaimed book, Kabbalah of Prayer ~Sacred Sounds and the Soul’s Journey, and the creator of the newly-released CD MediSounds ~ The Path to Wholeness; as well as Beyond Words ~ Sacred Sounds of the Tree of Life; as well as Vibration ~ Shulamit and the Drepung Gomang Buddhist Monks.
P.S. at the end of the show I append my weekly “pre-show” banter with Warren and Manuel who share with me thoughts about being a people pleaser!
