When she was 8, Eliana received a gift of Hebrew music. The mesmerizing voice on the record transfixed her for hours upon end as she doodled in her journal and learned all the words sung in this ancient tongue, by heart.
In Israel at 13, a wise woman encouraged her to sing. Receiving her degree in Near Eastern studies and with 13 years singing to the ancient rhythms, Eliana planned a move to Israel. Her family disapproved. The night before her departure, suddenly her father died, thwarting her plans, yet igniting her spiritual journey.
Voices of inner truth, inner doubt and criticism competed for her attention.
The turning point came during the 80’s recession when she got laid off from her 6-figure corporate job. Forced to take her next steps, but having no idea what they were, she chose to trust the voice inside which guided her to leave the US and apply the spiritual teachings learned through self-inquiry.
In France she broadcast voice-overs on CBS for the Olympic Games, then sang on the inner-city trains of Paris, her main “training” for developing this healing music modality. Following that same inner voice guided her to initiate the first live healing music study in a 50/50% Israeli-Palestinian neonatal intensive care unit resulting in a three year funded research project which has become a benchmark in the field of voice healing and music therapy.
For the past 25 years Eliana has devoted her life to help heart centered change-makers to trust their inner guidance by sharing this healing, transformation and feminine leadership way of ancient Israel.
Founder of Voices of Eden – Ancient Wisdom and Healing Music Institute, today Eliana leads online immersion trainings, live retreats and sacred wisdom journeys to help professional women awaken to their feminine power and authentic voice for maximum health, wealth and wisdom.
