Ashana

Transcendent music for healing, relaxation and meditation with crystal singing bowls.

Weaving together soaring, angelic vocals and the celestial sound of crystal singing bowls, Ashana is one of the premiere healing music artists and New Age vocalists of our time. In fact, Ashana’s original sound is the forefront of an entirely new genre of healing music. This exquisitely crafted, luminous sonic tapestry soothes and opens the heart, enfolding the listener in a transcendent experience of the Divine and a direct experience of the Soul. This stunningly beautiful alchemy has been hailed by listeners all over the world as “breathtaking” and “a Gift from Heaven.”

Evolving from deep self-exploration, her style is truly eclectic. From her haunting rendition of the Lords Prayer in the original Aramaic, to a Sufi chant, Latin verse, Gaelic song and Eastern mantra, Ashana blends Western and ethnic instruments with the unique drone of the crystal singing bowls to create the ultimate transcendent music for healing, relaxation and meditation.

A renowned Crystal Bowl Master, Ashana’s live performances have been called “powerful” and “deeply transformative” and she travels across the US, Canada and abroad offering concerts, crystalline activations and sound healing workshops. With her producer, Thomas Barquee (Snatam Kaur, Seal), Ashana has received international acclaim for her CD recordings All Is Forgiven, Jewels of Silence, Beloved, The Infinite Heart The Illuminated Path and River of Life. Her intuitive and unique vocal improvisations and crystal bowl playing are featured extensively in the documentary film “The Sound You Feel: Vibrations of Healing,” released by Beyond Words.

Ashana is passionate about nurturing the creative process to bring through just the right words, sound, melody, feeling and expression. Her musical calling came at an early age as a young girl growing up in the Bronx, in New York City. She began singing in churches and as time went on, synagogues, temples, sweat lodges and gurdwaras. Classically trained, she spent many years exploring a wide variety of musical genres including jazz, pop, gospel, musical theater as well as composing and teaching children’s music. From ancient to contemporary she immersed herself, graduating with a degree in vocal studies from the Mannes College of Music in New York City. She discovered yoga, chanting and mantra in the early 80’s and is a devoted student of Kundalini yoga, meditation and teachings from The Course in Miracles. For the last fifteen years, she has been on a deeply personal journey, studying and exploring sound healing and the voice. During this period she began working with quartz crystal singing bowls, instruments that are often used in contemplative practices to support healing, balance and well-being. Bringing these extraordinary sounds into her music and the lives of others is, Ashana reflects, “my destiny.”

“Music is a blessing, a prayer, and a healing when it comes deeply from the heart” says Ashana. “Music can transport us, lift us to the place where we gently let go and open to receive, reflect and remember the Love we truly Are. And as we begin to rest in this Love, our world is transformed. We see beauty in everything. And Heaven becomes fully present in every moment, right here on Earth.”

Performer, recording artist, sound healer, songwriter and teacher, Ashana tours the world with her concerts, workshops and crystalline activation ceremonies. She makes her home in Phoenix, AZ with her husband, James. And, of course, her magnificent family of crystal singing bowls.

Weaving together soaring, angelic vocals and the celestial sound of crystal singing bowls, Ashana is one of the premiere healing music artists and New Age vocalists of our time.

The power and beauty of 'Sound Healing'

zeenews.india.com

A couple of nights ago I wasn’t feeling well. I woke up at 1:00 am, couldn’t sleep, my body in tremendous discomfort. Times like these, it is so easy to slide back into old, familiar patterns that get triggered when the body feels unwell. Believe you me, I was definitely there. Finally, at 3 am, I sat on our living room couch and started deep toning. It was like an old Tibetan was living in my body. I toned like this for almost an hour. At a certain point, vibrations of the sound began flooding into my cells, opening up the stuck spaces. And the energy that was blocked began to move. In this state, I received the information for my next step (a compress), which I did. I finally fell asleep.

I remember when I was a little girl, I used to sing myself to sleep and tone when I felt sick. It is in our cellular memory to use our voice to heal. It's normal and natural. And it's FREE!!

I love this article about the healing power of Tibetan bowls and sound healing. I hope it inspires you to find your “Inner Lama” and make it one of your go-to places when you can use some healing.

Yours in the beauty of Sound, All my love, Ashana
