Benefits

Because …
there is an EXUBERANT,
wildly passionate,
creatively ALIVE and
phenomenally healing voice
INSIDE EVERY ONE OF US!

And this glorious, fun, deeply expressive companion in sound is ready and waiting to help you change your life!
And Sedona is the perfect, sacred and safe environment to rediscover and express the “real you.”
And there is no need to do this alone!

We’ve been there, we know what it feels like and we are committed to helping you make a change.
Join us and other like-minded, courageous people who are gathering together on this journey of healing sound.

This is Amazing!

So many of us have stories about our voices.

Some of us shut down our voices in response to the unkind or thoughtless words of a teacher or parent.

Some of us learned to keep our feelings hidden because it wasn’t safe to express them.

Some of us have been struggling for years with chronic pain; unresolved emotional trauma; literally locking up our bodies with disease, discomfort, depression or more.

Did you know your voice is one of the most powerful medicines available to you?

Did you know that the very sound of your voice can help heal the deepest trauma and release the most stubborn blocks and emotional scars?

Did you know that the sound of your own, uniquely beautiful voice can be a healing balm for yourself and others — and open a doorway to your soul?

What does this mean?It means that …

“One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes.”

Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, MD, Holistic MD & author of “The Healing Power of Sound”

By The End Of The Retreat You Will:

  • Identify and break through limiting beliefs about yourself and your voice that have kept you from authentically expressing yourself
  • Experience the healing power of your voice to release stuck energies and chronic pain on a cellular level
  • Strengthen the connection of your voice to your heart and soul as you ground more deeply into your body and the earth
  • Learn simple, easy healing sound practices and meditations that will help you feel calm, centered and clear

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.

Before the evening program, we will gather for a time of sharing. Then, 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!!!


Day 3: Grounding Your Healing Voice

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Continuing our inner journey of sound and silence, we will embark on a group hike into the heart of 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 water 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 drum and tone together on the land.
After our delectable picnic lunch, you’ll be free to explore the village of Sedona for some shopping and play time, or return to rest at Mago.
The evening will be a heart opening chant and kirtan concert, just for you, with Ashana and the crystal singing bowls, joined by Three Trees on didgeridoo, hand drum, vocals and world percussion.


Day 4: Honoring Your Healing Voice

Before breakfast, we’ll greet the day with Sunrise Kundalini Yoga and chanting. After breakfast, we’ll gather for our last session and closing ceremony. We’ll leave the beautiful Sedona Mago Retreat Center with some new practices and tools that we can take back home and integrate into our lives.
Now that you’ve accessed and activated your healing voice, you feel a sense of confidence in your ability to express yourself with greater authenticity, acceptance and love.

Ashana_Promo_2Master crystal bowl artist, consummate musician, sound healer and teacher, Ashana is considered to be one of the premiere healing music artists and New Age vocalists of our time.
“Weaving together soaring, angelic vocals and the celestial sound of crystal singing bowls, 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.”
A renowned Crystal Bowl Master, Ashana’s live performances have been called “powerful” and “deeply transformative” as she travels internationally, offering concerts, Crystalline Activations, sound healing workshops and retreats. Passionate about sharing the gifts of crystal sound and the healing voice, people around the globe journey to sit with Ashana to study sound healing and crystal bowl therapy.
Ashana makes her home in Phoenix, AZ with her husband, James, a Native Hawaiian Healer. And, of course, her magnificent family of crystal singing bowls.

“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

“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

La Maison des Cristaux Inc., Québec, Canada

“During the Activation Ceremony, we toned with Ashana and the crystal bowls for 2 ½ hours. I totally put my all into that evening and had an out of body experience like I have never had before. I felt like I had been taken to the very deep and grace filled space of Pure Love. No words can describe what happened to me.”

Sarah Grace

Reiki Master, Founder of Grace House, Overland Park, KS

James Kawainui

Native Hawaiian Healer
img-004James 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 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. One of the most meaningful days of my life was spent in a long, four-hour session with James, clearing and releasing trauma throughout my mind, body and spirit. I feel like I leapt light years ahead in my growth and development as a soul on earth. James has also helped me keep my body strong for my job as a Kundalini yoga teacher. 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, Radio Host & Kundalini Yoga Teacher

“I 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.”
