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 already even 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 to guide you and lead the way.

“The wonders of the music of the future will be of a higher and wider scale and will introduce many sounds that the human ear is now incapable of hearing. Among these new sound will be the glorious music of angelic chorales. As men hear these they will cease to consider Angels as figments of their imagination.”

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

I’m ready for Mount Shasta & the Bowls!

BY THE END OF THE IMMERSION YOU WILL: 

Play from a deeply centered, loving, grounded place within yourself that is connected to your True Self

Explore basic and more advanced bowl techniques in new ways to increase the healing effect of your playing.

Practice “deep listening” to merge with the bowl essence, allowing this expanded alchemy of sound to lead your playing


“Sound is the force of creation, the true whole…

Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927)

Top 9 Reasons To Be in Mount Shasta With Ashana & The Crystal Bowls

CRYSTALLINE ACTIVATION FOR PERSONAL HEALING WITH ASHANA & JAMES KAWAINUI

In this exquisite, heart-opening experience, Ashana and James Kawainui take you on a divine journey with your soul. Weaving together the sacred, expansive sound currents of crystal singing bowls and mantra with the ancient wisdom of the ancestors, this high-frequency clearing and activation facilitate the release of core patterns and sub-conscious beliefs as it simultaneously realigns your body, mind, and spirit to the higher vibrational frequencies of light and sound.

As these sacred sounds reverberate in and through every cell and fiber of your being, James gently works with each person to help clear blockages held within the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical bodies.
The alchemical fusion of these profound healing modalities creates an optimal space wherein layers and patterns of crystallized vibrational energies can be released and transformed, gently attuning you with your innate divine blueprint and the consciousness of your Higher Self. In the healing presence of love, our authenticity and vulnerability melt away resistance to change as we rest in the quiet center of loving kindness,
acceptance, and peace. This is a beautiful time for rest and rejuvenation!

 

REJUVENATION IN THE PRISTINE WATERS OF MOUNT SHASTA

Stewart Mineral Springs is one of our favorite places to be in Mount Shasta when we want to restore and rejuvenate the max and we can hardly wait to share this with you! It is believed that the mineral waters of these springs are some of the most powerful healing waters on mother earth. Everyone will have the opportunity to soak in an individual tub in the bath house, plunge into the cold creek and take advantage of the purifying wood-burning sauna to clear and refresh body, mind, and spirit.

DIVINE CONNECTION

You will be safely cocooned in a nurturing community of like-hearted sound lovers, laughing, playing, rejuvenating, relaxing and sharing with authenticity and love in an environment that supports true self-exploration and discovery. Through meditation and healing sound experiences, awareness, and learning, you will deepen and expand your connection with your Higher Self and the Universal Sound Current that expresses through all life.

A NEW RELATIONSHIP WITH SOUND

As you go through this journey of sound, you will have moments of tremendous awareness and insights. Soaking in the healing waters at Steward, sitting in the shadow of the mountain, playing your bowls under the stars and the trees, listening deeply, you’ll have many opportunities to feel the silence and beauty of the earth and the eternal sounds within all life. Meditating, toning, chanting in the powerful energies of Mount Shasta, your mind and heart will open. You will begin to hear and feel sound in a new way. Grounded in your body and connected to earth and heaven, you will open to a new way of being with your bowls and with yourself.

WELCOME NEW ALCHEMY CRYSTAL SINGING BOWLS INTO YOUR LIFE!

After spending hours playing alchemy crystal singing bowls, many of you will feel inspired and ready to bring some of these magnificent beings into your life. Ashana will be bringing bowls that she has personally hand-selected in perfectly balanced, exquisitely created harmonic sets, as well as individual bowls. These bowls will hold space for you during the entire immersion. Infused with the vibrations of our time together, you will have the opportunity to take one or more home with you as you continue expanding on your personal sound journey. In addition, times will be available for anyone who wishes to schedule a personal meeting with Ashana where she will help you select bowls for your own use, to add to your established bowl collection, or to work with her one-on-one to address specific concerns or issues in your personal practice.

TRANSFORMATION THROUGH ANCIENT HEALING WISDOM

Whenever we spend time playing crystal singing bowls intensively things inevitably come up for clearing and release on many levels. To help you integrate and move through your process with ease and grace, you will be supported by the compassionate heart and profound wisdom of Native Hawaiian Healer, James Kawainui. James’s extraordinary work can shift your energy at the cellular level, oftentimes creating miraculous change in generational patterns of trauma and blockage. James will be available for private sessions to work with each person individually throughout the entire weekend. For more information on James, visit his website at www.JamesKawainui.com.

DELICIOUS ORGANIC MEALS

We will be staying together at the beautiful Telosia Sanctuary outside of Shasta City. Our meals will be organic, vegetarian, gluten-free, nutritious and DELICIOUS. Each meal and all our snacks will be freshly prepared each day by loving hands committed to nourishing our bodies and helping us stabilize and integrate the crystalline energies and shifts that will be a natural part of our retreat. And yes, we will have yummy desserts, too!!

EXPLORING MAGICAL MOUNT SHASTA

The mountain is calling you … 

Many feel the call to come to Mount Shasta without understanding why. Something in your heart, your knowingness pulls to be in Her presence. To stand gazing upon her face. To walk amongst the trees, drink the pure waters and lie upon this blessed earth.
When you are here, you know in some deep part of your being that you are Home.
A dormant volcano, the energy around Shasta feels raw, primal and vibrantly alive. It is a vortex of tremendous power. The Native Americans revered the mountain as sacred and regarded it as the center of creation. It has been called the Root Chakra of the earth and one of the world’s sacred mountains.
Many who visit or live here share stories of unexplainable events, sightings of unusual energies, personal transformation, and healing. We encourage you to come a day early or stay for a day or two after the retreat to walk some of the meadows and open areas midway up the mountain and to visit Shasta City where you can enjoy shopping for crystals, artwork, and gifts at the many boutiques and stores.

AND A FEW SURPRISES ALONG THE WAY!!

Where we’ll be staying..

We are incredibly blessed to host our retreat at the beautiful private retreat centre Telosian Living, located on 26 acres of pristine land overlooking the mountain. Telosia has been transformed into an ’Enchanted kingdom’ in which the energy reflects a beautiful harmony and balance where the elementals and all the fairy beings feel at home. It has the Mount Shasta river running through it and several astounding creeks. It actually reflects the energy of Telos, inner earth.

Here is a brief video of Telosia which captures just a fraction of its magic.

Telosian Living holds a vision of true Oneness and collaborative community, committed to developing new ways of Living with permaculture, eco-sustainability, harmony with animals and nature which reflect more of our sensitive nature and consciousness. The intention of Living on the Telosia Sanctuary is to further support the next generation and ourselves in discovering New Ways of Living together as Multi-Dimensional Families.

Due to limited availability of on-site housing at Telosia, half of our participants will be staying a few minutes down the road at the Magical A-Frame Chalet outside of Stewart Mineral Springs. All classes, gatherings and meals will be at Telosia.

Your Itinerary

DAY ONE | Welcome!


Dinner

We arrive! Celebrate the magic of Mount Shasta and feel the gentle peace of Telosia welcoming you into the heart of the mountain. Settle into your room and take some time to walk the property and connect with the earth. After dinner, we’ll start our retreat by getting to know our group of amazing people.

Then, Ashana will lead us through a Full Moon meditation with the crystal singing bowls. The Full Moon in May is traditionally known as the “Full Flower Moon,” also called the “Full Blessing Moon,” “The Corn Planting Moon,” and the “Bright Moon.” because this is known to be one of the brightest full moons.

The energies of the Flower Moon will help us celebrate our creativity, connection with all life and the fertile gifts of a bountiful earth. This gentle meditation will be a time to set your intention and be bathed in deeply healing sounds before drifting off to sleep.

DAY TWO | Crystal Bowl Mastery


Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

After a relaxing morning and delicious breakfast looking at the mountain, we start right out with our first session. With presence and breath, you will explore playing crystal singing bowls with a Beginner’s Mind, learning deep whole body listening. Interspersed with our playing, we will be toning and sounding with our bowls and playing with harmonics.

We break for lunch and then have our afternoon session. Weather permitting, we will spend some of our time outdoors in the trees, playing our bowls on the earth and connecting to the elemental energies that are so deeply present and accessible at Telosia. Tuning into tree energy, the waters and the vibrant pulse of life all around us, we will again practice deep listening of the harmonics heard in nature and merge crystal and vocal sound with the sounds of the earth.

We’ll have dinner together in community and then gather one last time to share and connect in circle. The rest of the evening is yours to relax, integrate, enjoy the company of newfound friends or spend quiet time alone.

DAY THREE | Grounding Your Playing


Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

You’ll have time before breakfast to walk the land, watch the sunrise, meditate, journal or sleep in!! After another yummy breakfast, we will dive deep again with a class devoted to helping you better understand and work with harmonics and frequency as they apply to crystal singing bowls. We’ll have a short break and during the second part of our morning session, Ashana and James will give you important tools and protocols for self-care and nurturing while playing your bowls. After lunch, you’ll have to time to integrate, relax and reflect on the morning activities. Mid-afternoon, we will head to Stewart Mineral Springs for a few hours to soak in the healing waters and cleanse in the sauna.


Saturday evening, Ashana and James will lead everyone in a Crystalline Activation Ceremony. Called “powerful” and “life-changing” by participants all over the world.
The Crystalline Activation Ceremony is a high-frequency karmic clearing created to release limiting, contracted thought forms, patterns, and belief systems while activating tremendous light in the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies.

The effect of the activation is a realignment of the entire system with ones’ innate divine blueprint and the consciousness of the Higher Self. Profoundly relaxing and peaceful, this sound meditation creates a space for deep healing. Chanting the seed mantras of creation with the resonant healing vibrations of alchemy crystal singing bowls, you will realign, clear and balance your energy to rest in the stillness and light of your Highest Awareness and Beloved Self.

After the Activation, we will move into silence until we come together again for our morning program. Being in silence will give you the space to experience yourself and the sounds within. Sweet dreams!!!

DAY FOUR | Taking it to the next level


Breakfast

After breakfast, we’ll gather for our last session and closing sound circle. We’ll leave the beautiful Telosia Retreat Center with some new practices and tools that we can take back home and integrate into personal and professional sound healing practices. Now that you’ve accessed and activated your deep listening, expanded your awareness of sound, learned new skills and opened to the consciousness of the crystal singing bowls, you feel a sense of confidence in your ability to play with greater authenticity, presence, connection and love.

Ashana’s style is gentle and loving. She holds space for you. She helped me find clarity on my mission as a sound healer.

Joseph Fianacca

Yoga Teacher, Kuwait

I recently had the honor of experiencing a life transforming 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 using my voice to sing. Her open heart, compassion, and patience assisted me in 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! Karen Salinger

Energy & Sound Healing Practitioner, Encinitas, CA

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. Helene Vallee

JAMES KAWAINUI


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 leapt 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”, Unity FM Radio Host & Yoga Teacher
