Sound Journeys are like sound baths with a narrative. Sound Journeys support your psyche, soul and biofield and allow you to reconnect with your feelings, release energetic blockages and free your mind from stress. It is a true time out from the daily grind. The journey can be fully or partially guided, as a visual journey or deep listening session that I guide you through.
Embark on a journey into your consciousness while relaxing in a safe space. You will be immersed in a world where space and time expand. The sessions take place in a protected and relaxed environment, lying down, comfortably wrapped in blankets and wearing an eye mask. You will hear different sounds while the journey takes place.
Gongs, singing bowls and other instruments used in a sound journey are transformative vibroacoustic tools that guide your body and mind into deep relaxation, physiological homeostasis and cellular regeneration. This process supports your psyche, soul and biofield to reconnect with your inner world, release energetic blockages and give your body, mind and spirit a chance to come back into balance and harmony.
A professional Sound Journey immerses you in a wide range of sounds that put your brain into restful, meditative frequencies. Your brain enters a deep state of coherence that leads to restorative reordering and creative inspiration.
On a physiological level, your body benefits from various sound-related effects. Your cells receive physical impulses, while your autonomic nervous system undergoes profound reprogramming. These physiological effects influence your inner journey on a deeper level.
Before the session, your health and psychological suitability will be assessed.

We grow with Sound Science
„Modern physics has taught us that the nature of any system cannot be discovered by dividing it into its component parts and studying each part by itself... We must keep our attention fixed on the whole and on the interconnection between the parts. The same is true of our intellectual life. The whole is never equal simply to the sum of its various parts."

Future Strategic Priorities of the Swiss Decentralized Healthcare System: A COVID-19 Case Study
Peer-reviewed article / Institute of Global Health, Geneva
Read the full text here
In this article, my research team and I draw on three distinct areas of analysis of the current functioning of the Swiss healthcare system to examine its strengths and weaknesses, which can serve as a basis for future considerations and strategic priorities. It includes an analysis of quantitative data, insights from healthcare stakeholders, information from policy documents, and news agency publications.
This publication is part of my work at the Institute of Global Health at Campus Biotech, Université de Genève, as a global series of Covid-19 case studies to be the subject of future discussions on pandemic management.

THE U.N.G.S.I.I. FOUNDATION: The idea of the Global Sustainability Index Institute (UNGSII) supporting the implementation of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) springs from the belief shared by United Nations officials, senior business leaders, and NGOs that a transparent, academically driven index is needed to rank companies and countries on their sustainability practices.

SDG #3 - Good Health for all
True abundance comes from connection. The inspiring 2018 Global Health Delivery Intensive Program at Harvard University climaxed 10 years of a growing network by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard Business School, and Harvard Medical School, in an effort to create an interdisciplinary skill set that will improve how we build health care. Miriam has been profoundly impressed by the determination and mutual understanding that they as a group of over 27 nationalities shared.
This network offers committed leaders who have been changing our health delivery systems, with a dedication that is of rare humanistic nature - among them representatives of Partners in Health, Seed Global Health, Abundance Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and many more. As a global citizen, she feels inspired to be part of this growing network that is creating brighter and sustainable healthcare. From a futurist perspective, Global Health is groundwork for health systems that we will continue not only on our planet Earth.
