Healing Sounds from Ancient Traditions


“Eliana offers a simple and effective use of rhythm and voice for centering ourselves in life’s turbulence. In this refreshing process, we don’t “create” sounds; we allow them to emerge intuitively. Both listening and releasing these sounds keeps us in the present moment. It is balm for the soul.” 

Ping Ho, MA, MPH Founding Director, UCLArts and Healing 

Tap into your creative power and recharge your batteries. How can you remain clear and calm inside when things outside are filled with challenge? Come prepared for a rare, restful, deeply satisfying, meditative experience. 

Eliana Gilad offers a seemingly magical means of self discovery through the simple, conscious use of voice and rhythm that she found effective even as bombs were dropping during the 2006 war in Israel.

Eliana presents the evidence basis behind the therapeutic relaxation technique, beginning with the first research conducted in a 50/50% Jewish-Arab neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The Voices of Eden expressive therapy technique has been medically proven to lower stress, increase focus and improve quality of sleep. Participants experience receiving and releasing sound for self care. No musical aptitude, experience or equipment is necessary.

According to medical research, natural and authentic tones and rhythms are nurturing and their power is the greatest in the silence following them. Such sounds have historically been used in places of worship to bypass the intellect, replenish energy and clear the mind for creative thinking and effective decision making. Eliana has spent the last 25 years of her life reviving this ancient tradition.

Replenish your energy and expand your ability to authentically express your voice in the world.

Sample Keynote Music Presentations

“My conference and convention programs are called Keynote Music Presentations because they include the inspiration and uplifting dynamics that you would expect from a keynote talk, though delivered in a sublime musical, multimedia form. While other speakers might recount a personal experience to make a point, I make my point by offering a live direct experience of it. It will literally take you beyond words!”
-Eliana Gilad, Voices of Eden

“This is one of the most important presentations we have experienced here: so important for the UN and others around the world. Thank you and every member of Voices of Eden for making such a big difference. “L. Arellano, SEAT President, UN SRC

Workshop: Ancient Secrets of Feminine Leadership

Half Day, Full Day and Two Day Formats

Life is stressful. Sometimes it feels like it would take the parting of the seas just to break through all the noise, anxiety, fatigue, and burnout in our lives. This transformational experience led by world renowned feminine leadership midwife, healing music pioneer and TEDx presenter Eliana Gilad helps change makers, feminine leaders, healers, coaches, community leaders, and conscious professionals to connect to the source of their true power with grace and ease.

The workshop offers a woven tapestry of:
• guided meditation
• group discussion
• feminine leadership tools
• ancient healing and transformational music
• vocal empowerment techniques

Inspired by the Prophetess Miriam whose silent leadership changed the course of history, Gilad teaches an ancient feminine 6 part wisdom process that helps us listen to our inner voices and make it through the desert to our personal promised land.
Gilad breaks down each tool with self-guidance questions —while incorporating healing and transformational music elements from the Voices of Eden model.

You can expect:
• Guided meditations to open your heart and calm your mind
• Group discussion in a welcoming, warm space
• Ancient Healing Music Practices (no need for musical talent!)
• Simple yet potent grounding techniques help you reduce stress

The effects of this experiential training will echo far beyond the 2-day workshop as you return to daily life to find you’re living more intuitively with flow, ease, and happiness.

Thank you for your presentation at the International Summit for Music Therapy in the NICU at the Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine, Beth Israel Medical Center.  Looking forward to develop our collaboration.”Dr. Joanne Loewy, Conference Organizer, Co-Editor-in-Chief, “Music and Medicine” SAGE Publications

Workshop: Vocal Mastery: Master Your Voice, Master Your Success

The success of an organization depends upon the individuals who work there. People bring their anxieties to work and their work stress back home: their voice reflects it sabotaging success in both places. Mastering the ability to trust and express your authentic voice in any situation:

  • Improves focus
  • Improves productivity
  • Decreases absenteeism
  • Revitalizes the workplace through authentic leadership

Eliana Gilad broadcast prime time voice overs to 60 million television viewers during the Olympic Games, developed a simple focusing tool for overcoming fear of public speaking and revived an ancient method of using voice and music as transformation and leadership tools, clinically proven to reduce stress and anxiety.

This healing music approach acclaimed in prestigious medical journals, worldwide print media and TV was first developed while Gilad sang on the inner city trains of France and released her fear of public presentation.

People hire Eliana for her authentic voice. They pay her to help them trust their own and appreciate her most when they have expressed themselves with confidence and ease.

The wordless vocal music that Gilad composes live on the spot and the simple non threatening provides profound immediate results in others who joyfully participate.

“Music and Archaeology” Conference – 2012, Beijing, China


Eliana brought her incredible voice, wisdom and talent to our Center and opened and touched our hearts: People were not only impressed with her presentations & teaching, but how it enabled them to think “larger” and to “live more peace” in their own lives.She told her personal “story” of living in peace through war – people were moved, humbled and inspired.She also shared the sounds of the ancients – which was wonderful for our meditations. These musical tones takes one back to a time of remembrance of Unity and wholeness.We were very moved by her courage, intention and passion for her vision and for her expression of the sacredness of life. She is, indeed, in touch with her higher Self and allows the love of that Self to shine through all she does.I certainly recommend Eliana to anyone.”Dr. Arlene Bump, Director, Center for Spiritual Living Fort Lauderdale .


The root of Eliana Gilad’s message:

“I believe that each one of us has a special contribution to make in life. When we listen inside ourselves to gain wisdom, what we share will be of value. When people go to a meeting, it’s a chance for people meet, listen and express their unique voice. Sometimes slow can be the fastest route, and less is more. I am here to create a safe environment so that each voice can be heard and appreciated. Every voice truly makes a difference.”
-Eliana Gilad, Voices of Eden
