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.

We enjoyed our classes with Shulamit Elson very much, and the discussions and insights that came out of them. SoundPrayer and the Observation Technique have given us new ways to connect to Spirit. They have also given us the means to heal ourselves and to make a positive difference in the world. In the wake of the recent tragedy in Boston, we were very grateful to have the Sound Prayers as a way to send love and healing to all of those suffering from those events. Thank you Shulamit for these valuable tools that we will continue to use and perfect. We are very grateful that our paths have crossed and we hope to work with you again in the future.

We contacted Shulamit because we were searching for a path to further our spiritual growth. Our sessions with Shulamit gave us the tools we were seeking in order to do this. SoundPrayer made us more aware of ourselves as an integral part of the universe. It also placed us firmly in our lives. It is a practice that we now use daily and it creates a sense of calm and wellness, both physically and mentally. We learned the art of self observation in discussions with Shulamit about problems that we were encountering in our daily lives. One of the main tools Shulamit taught was to be non judging in our observations of ourselves. Her insights into this process were based on her own experiences, and her compassion and warmth during the discussions made the process enjoyable and fulfilling. We came away from our sessions with Shulamit feeling that we now had tools to assist us on our spiritual path as well as solving problems in our daily life. Thank you Shulamit.

Shulamit Elson is a down-to-earth teacher with a profound experience of the spiritual path. Her way of working very soon instilled in me a deep feeling of trust. What she offers is no “fast food” kabbalah recipe, but a responsible and emphatic dialogue based on her deep intuitive insights into the spiritual worlds and the psyche of the student. I’m glad to have found a qualified and authentic teacher leading me gently to my true inner Self.
Guided by Shulamit Elson and her grounded teaching, Sound Prayer® has become a tangible and powerful organizing pillar of my daily life. The regular practice of Sound Prayer continues to deepen my connection to myself, to those most important in my life, to humanity, and to God.

Working with Shulamit & Sound Prayer has helped me touch & 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.

Since we work together I started to see more clear, 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!!!!

My work with Shulamit has taken me from doubt, indecision and inner turmoil to a place of certainty, balance and inner peace. It is a work of sacred sounds – beyond words – that call to the full expression of the soul. Through Sound Prayer, I am grateful to serve as an instrument for inner and global peace.

In what has been a fairly short space of time, I have found the combination of Sound Prayer, 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.

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 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!
