Tell me more!

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 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 when your voice merges with the sound of 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…”

Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882 – 1927)

Exploring Magical Sedona

“God created The Grand Canyon, but He lives in Sedona.”

A destination of spiritual renewal — sacred and mystical — there is a welcoming, often healing, embrace to Sedona, as if your soul is being hugged. “Inspiring,” “uplifting,” and “rejuvenating” are feelings expressed by visitors over and over again. It begins with the mesmerizing beauty, yet the more time spent among these great stone temples, the more it becomes apparent that other forces are at work. There is something deeper here, buried beneath the red rocks. Discover it for yourself. You will have time to visit the village of Sedona, enjoy shopping for crystals, Native American pottery, crafts and gifts at the many boutiques and stores.

And A Few Surprises Along The Way!!

Day 2 (Thursday)

Crystal Bowl Immersion with Ashana

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

After a relaxing morning and delicious breakfast 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 from the center of your being. You’ll learn the FIVE KEYS necessary to create powerful sound healing experiences with crystal bowls. We’ll also begin to incorporate toning and sounding with our bowls and playing with harmonics.

We break for lunch and you will have the afternoon free to explore the beauty and power of the land that enfolds the Mago Retreat Center. Walk the labyrinth, circle the lake, hike the vistas, play your bowls or experience a healing session with Ashana and James. The afternoon is time for YOU to integrate and tune into the powerful energy and the vibrant pulse of life all around you and the myriad of healing sounds of the earth.


We’ll have dinner together in community and afterwards, 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. Sweet dreams!!!

Continuing our inner journey of sound and silence, we will spend time at one of Sedona’s powerful energy vortexes. In a quiet walking meditation, we will listen to our heartbeats, our footsteps on the sandy trails, the songbirds call, the rustle of the trees and the fragrance of the wind. Resting on the earth, we’ll tune our voices to the sound of rock and the spirit of the earth that lives within us. You’ll experience the power and presence of Gaia, throbbing inside of you, while we play and tone together in sacred ceremony on the land.

After a delicious picnic lunch at Red Rock State Park, we’ll convene back at Mago for an afternoon session of Crystal Bowl Mastery with Ashana & James.

The evening will be an extraordinary.special treat of a sound healing experience with Sedona’s very own Three Trees who will be taking you on a Soulmonic shamanic sound journey.

Day 4 (Saturday)

Your Healing Voice & Energy Protocols for Self-Care while Playing Bowls


You’ll have time before breakfast to walk the land, watch the sunrise, meditate, journal, do yoga or sleep in!!

Morning Session with James Kawainui:
Must Have Energy Hygiene Protocols when for individuals and groups

After another yummy breakfast, we will dive deep again with an in-depth class devoted to giving you important tools and protocols for self-care and nurturing while playing your bowls.

Afternoon Session with Ashana: Finding your voice with the crystal bowls

Now that you are beginning to play with presence and feeling grounded in your body, Ashana will lead you through gentle processes to help awaken your authentic, healing voice through toning, mantra and chant with your bowls. Playing bowls while sounding, singing or toning with your voice is one of the most powerful healing practices you can do for yourself. Whether or not you ever share this with others, vocal sounding combined with high vibrational frequencies of crystal bowls can effectively and quickly clear emotional blocks, resistance and stagnant, crystallized energies throughout the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.

Evening Kirtan with Ashana & Three Trees!

After dinner, you’re in for yet another special treat as Ashana and Three Trees join together to bring you a heart opening chant and kirtan concert. Ashana playing keyboard, harmonium and crystal singing bowls with Three Trees on didgeridoo, hand drum, vocals and world percussion will lead you into deep sonic spaces that will take you on a cosmic journey of light and have you singing, chanting and dancing for joy!

Day 5 (Sunday)

Putting It all Together and Closing Ceremony

After breakfast, we’ll gather for our last session and closing sound circle. You’ll leave the beautiful Mago Retreat Center with new practices and tools you can take back home and integrate into your 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.

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 connected 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 its 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.

I had the privilege to have a crystalline bowl activation and a 4-day personal training course with Ashana. It was a powerful, personal healing experience, and I am blessed for the precious teachings I received. 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 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 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.

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

James Kawainui’s work is transformative. By tuning in to his clients 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!

Take Your Experience To Another Level

Schedule a Personal Session with Ashana or James During or After The Retreat

A Limited Number of Personal, One-on-One Sessions will be Available

Personal Crystal Bowl and Transformational Healing Sound Consultations with Ashana:

Ashana is offering both personalized crystal bowl consultations and Transformational Healing Sound sessions.  Find Your Perfect Match is a crystal bowl consultation with Ashana designed 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. These consultations are in themselves deeply healing experiences and 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.

Transformational Healing Sound sessions with Ashana are an opportunity to receive one-on-one sound healing with alchemy and master alchemy crystal bowls with Ashana. These sessions can facilitate deep clearing, personal shifts at the core level, increased clarity, wellness and profound states of calmness and peace. During the session, you may experience deep journeying and visions as Ashana and the bowls transmit high vibrational frequencies through healing vocal and crystal sound.

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. Afterwards, 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 huge investment in healing for myself. I can’t imagine doing this any other way or with anyone else.

— Mary Mullin, IKYTA Yoga Teacher, Village Yoga, Cape Cod, MA

Personal Transformational Healing Session with James:

A 90-minute hands-on healing with James can release physical pain or trauma at the root or original cause, resulting in a vibrational shift that will rejuvenate and restore your entire being. The combination of crystal bowl healing with James’ work can support significant personal transformation at the core level.

Praise from Past Sound Wisdom Retreats with Ashana & James

“This retreat was beyond amazing as well as sincerely life-changing. The retreat itself and the connection with Ashana & James went well beyond my expectations. I learned and experienced more, and at a deeper level, than I was aware I could go.”

“Bliss! Everything I expected and MORE! I received healing at all levels. The retreat was a powerful experience.”

“Welcoming, inclusive, fun, lighthearted, informative, teaching of technique and overall a joyful experience! Mentally enlightening, spiritually expansive and life-changing!”

“This retreat was powerful and so much FUN! The key for me is that Ashana & James are walking their talk and following a profound co-creative process in how it unfolds. I can trust and know at a deep and sacred level that we are being guided and held.”
