This sounds amazing…
Is this you?
- You are a teacher, lightworker, healing practitioner or someone who is committed to making a real difference in the world and in the lives of those you serve.
- You know that sound is a powerful healing modality. You may have already experienced this first-hand, or use sound in your life, your work, or your healing practice.
- You have heard the haunting sounds of the crystal singing bowls. You may already have bowls in your life. And when you hear their shimmering, celestial tones, you are instantly transported to a place of indescribable expansion and joy. From the ﬁrst moment you heard this sound, you intuitively knew it was calling you “home.”
- You are ready to go deeper. To experience crystal singing bowls with a Beginner’s Mind and from a place that is connected to your True Self. To understand and actually feel the bowls as a living consciousness. To learn how to work with them with greater sensitivity and awareness. To explore using your voice with the bowls in ways that are soothing, sensual, authentic and healing.
- You are open and inspired by the thought of working with an experienced, world-recognized Master Teacher of Sound Healing with Crystal Bowls to guide you and lead the way.
Whether we are aware of it or not, sound is continuously vibrating every cell and atom in our bodies, from the moment we begin to hear our mother’s heartbeat, nestled in her womb. Using sound to heal ourselves and affect the world around us is something everyone can do. It can clear the most dense energetic patterns trapped in our bodies, minds, and emotions and transform a life in a matter of moments — moving us from anger to forgiveness, heartbreak to hope, or turning sadness into indescribable JOY.
BY THE END OF FIVE DAYS WITH ASHANA, YOU WILL:
Play from a deeply centered, loving, grounded place within yourself that is connected to your True Self
Understand and have gained hands-on experience with basic and more advanced bowl techniques that will increase the healing effect of your playing
Explore the indescribable healing alchemy created in group sound with the crystal bowls
Be attuned to the practice of “deep listening” as you surrender to the essence of the crystal bowls, allowing this expanded alchemy of sound to lead your playing
“Sound is the force of creation, the true whole…”

A Student’s Experience Attending the Crystal Bowl Mastery™ Retreat with Ashana:
“The teaching offered at the retreat has profoundly shifted my life and bowl playing! I’ve been playing the bowls for over 4 1/2 years and never have I had the depth of training that I received. I teach regularly at a Yoga studio in Sedona and the class includes a short Yoga sequence with an hour of chanting, guided meditation and visualization while playing the bowls. When I got back from the retreat, numerous people commented that my whole bowl playing has jumped up to a whole new level. Some people also commented that this is my path in life and they could see it clearly! I had never had those comments before the retreat and clearly the class made a profound difference for the students. The owner of the studio says I have much more confidence and invited me to lead a workshop on Sound Healing with crystal bowls. I know I have a ton more to learn but I am so deeply touched by your teachings and the difference it has made in my life personally and with my classes. I also have connections with the local cancer center and they are interested in my leading the staff in a session.
Ashana, thank you so much for holding the retreat, being a guide to us, and making a huge difference in the world of sound healing! The planet needs great sound healers and your depth of wisdom and knowledge is so huge and can profoundly help bring healing across the planet. I’m so blessed and thrilled to be part of your training and have an amazing opportunity to learn from you! Thank you for your love, devotion, and commitment to your students.”

Comments on Mentoring & Studying with Ashana:
This work is priceless. It isn’t just learning how to play crystal singing bowls. It is the experience and opportunity to dive deep within under the guidance of a mentor who has gone through it all. This is a journey of self-discovery and transformation unlike any I have ever experienced — and I have done MUCH healing work over the years. I learned more about myself than I have in many years of healing and self-discovery combined. If you are thinking about taking the step to change your practice, take it without hesitation because this program will change your life in ways beyond comprehension.
— Laura Mayhew, Sound Healing Practitioner, Intuitive Healer, Boston, MA
“Working with Ashana to find the perfect alchemy crystal singing bowls has changed my life. Her depth of knowledge and experience is almost unimaginable, but it’s her intuitive understanding of how this bowl or that bowl will work together and work with me that allows me to use them on a daily basis to heal myself in such a profound way. The bowls Ashana found for me are truly my perfect match. They have helped me heal from tremendous health problems and brought a new level of peace and calm to my mind and heart. She is transformational and a true master. Through her support, I have become confident enough to use them in public and share them in my workshops. I always consult with her when I feel the calling to add to my collection. She’s a Bowl Midwife! I’m so grateful to have her in my life. I can’t recommend working with her more highly. She is THE ONE.”

— Terrie Atkin, RN, Yoga Teacher, & Aromatherapist
I recently had the honor of experiencing a life-transforming private one-one-one sound healing immersion training with Ashana. Ashana created a safe space for me to learn how to play Alchemy bowls while also learning how to use my voice to sing. Her open heart, compassion, and patience assisted me in the opening to a new level of healing. My experience working with Ashana gave me the conﬁdence to play the Alchemy bowls and the knowledge of how to energetically care for myself, as well as, clients while I play the bowls. It was a beautiful experience I will always treasure!

My experience with Ashana and the alchemy bowls was unforgettable. I could not dream of a better teacher. I recommend her from the bottom of my heart, with all my gratitude for her wonderful work with me. Ashana, every time I begin to play with my bowls, I take a moment and thank you in my heart. Every time I play my bowls, I smile, because I feel you are near me.

Native Hawaiian Healer
James Kealiipiilani Kawainui is a Native Hawaiian Healer with family roots deep in ancient Hawaii. At a very young age, his lineage was passed to him by his grandmother through the ha, the breath of life.
James studied with Traditional Hawaiian and New Zealand Maori healers and is the creator of an extraordinary form of healing called Manalima Lomilomi. In 2009 he was guided by his kupuna (ancestors) to move to the mainland to offer his work.
During his healing work, James reads the energetic ﬂow in your body to ﬁnd those places where the ﬂow is stuck or diminished. This is usually the source of physical, emotional, mental or spiritual pain.
Through a combination of touch, visualization, and spiritual guidance, your body is ﬁnally able to release the pain or trauma it has been holding. All of this is done with the utmost sensitivity and patience. As you move through the process, you feel profoundly loved and supported. You know it is safe. James makes his home in Phoenix, AZ and travels internationally with his wife, sacred vocal chant and crystal bowl artist, Ashana.
My 18-year-old daughter had 8 sessions of TMJ therapy at a cost of $2,000, with no results. In one session with James, it was completely gone. What more can I say? I cannot recommend him highly enough.
— Elizabeth Miketinac, Phoenix, AZ
My work with James has been life-changing. I’ve gone through years of therapy in a few minutes, processed lifetimes of trauma in a few hours and leaped light years ahead in my growth and development as a soul on earth. I can’t say enough about how powerful he is. Run, don’t walk, to work with him…every single chance you get.
— Ramdesh Kaur, Author of “The Body Temple”, Yoga Teacher and Marketing Specialist
James Kawainui’s work is transformative. By tuning in to his client’s physical body he can intuit the causes and history of your pain. As a Myotherapist myself, I appreciate his work. The combination of intuition and hands-on-healing is an amazing life-changing experience. He is an amazing healer!

Personal Crystal Bowl Consultations with Ashana
Ashana is offering a limited number of personalized crystal bowl consultations. to help you identify the alchemy crystal singing bowls that are the highest support and frequency match for you at this time in your life OR to add speciﬁc bowls to your existing crystal bowl family. Many of Ashana’s students and clients worldwide express gratitude and appreciation for the support, clarity, and depth of understanding they receive during these sessions.
My Transformational Healing Sound session with Ashana was the first time in a long time that I let myself go in a session with anyone. There was a point when Ashana was playing bowls on me that I felt the energy shift. Afterward, I realized that something had literally been “exorcised” within me. Whatever it was, whether it was a thought or a feeling, it had left and a feeling of calm, centered, grounded peace replaced the tension and anxiety. Since the session, it has been easier for me to drop into myself so I can find my quiet space within. Don’t make the mistake of underestimating the power of the crystal singing bowls and the sound current they bring in. Even though it may feel subtle in the moment, the effects are deep and long-lasting. If you have the opportunity to receive this work from Ashana, do it. Make the time. Give this to yourself.
M. J., Spiritualist and Energy Healer, Sedona AZ
Working with Ashana to find my crystal bowls was not just about purchasing a bowl — it was a huge investment in healing for myself. I can’t imagine doing this any other way or with anyone else.
