Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
Just back from her Japan tour, ASHANA returns with her new album, ‘THE ILLUMINATED PATH,’ launches her US tour with an appearance at Pranafest on September 29th, followed by leading Spirit Voyage’s 40-day global Sadhana starting on October 9th.
Weaving together soaring angelic vocals and the celestial sound of crystal singing bowls, Spirit Voyage artist Ashana’s original sound is the forefront of an entirely new genre of healing music. Named “a shining star in New Age music!” by Jordan Rich (CBS Radio Boston), Ashana has received worldwide acclaim for her extraordinary blend of Western and ethnic instruments with the unique drone of the crystal singing bowls, along with mantra, chant and song, creating a harmonic fusion that provides the ultimate transcendent music for healing, relaxation and meditation.
Ashana’s new CD,”The Illuminated Path,” has just been released and is already receiving rave reviews. This amazing work consists of 2 thirty-minute, interactive meditations designed for self-healing. These stunningly beautiful tracks inspire the listener to sail through life’s challenges with ease and grace.
Ashana launches her US tour with a special appearance at the first ever Pranafest in Ashland, Oregon on September 29th at 10am on the Main Stage. Pranafest is an open-heart gathering of prayer and celebration, offering kirtan, yoga, workshops, sacred ceremonies, healing, and deep communal connection.
Following Pranafest, audiences are in for a one-of-a-kind experience as this exceptionally gifted artist takes her music on the road this fall. Ashana, accompanied by 40 crystal singing bowls, will give concerts and offer her renowned Crystalline Activation Ceremony throughout the East Coast starting in Meredith, NH (10/5 & 10/6), then Andover, MA (10/12 & 10/13), West Hartford, CT (10/19 & 10/20), Albany, NY (10/27), Vienna, VA (11/2 & 11/3), Annapolis, MD (11/10 & 11/11) and Marstons Mills, MA (11/17). Tickets and full details for all dates are available online at http://www.AshanaMusic.com.
Ashana is thrilled that Spirit Voyage asked her to lead their 40-day Global Sadhana beginning October 9th. This is a worldwide event involving thousands of people in 75 countries doing a group sadhana for 40 days and will feature Ashana's "Hari Nam Sat Nam" from The Illuminated Path.
Listeners the world over describe Ashana’s live music events as “ecstatic,” “profoundly healing,” “breathtakingly beautiful” and “indescribable joy.” Join Ashana for a magical evening of sacred chant, song, and mystical poetry accompanied by keyboards and vibrant world percussion. Ashana’s exquisite new renditions of sacred chant, mantra and song from the world’s traditions have the power to carry you literally to the angelic realms, transporting you to transcendent states of deep peace and inner healing on the gentlest waves of devotion and compassion.
Ashana’s “Crystalline Activation Ceremony for Profound Manifestation and Healing” is a powerful and highly interactive evening that opens a floodgate of divine energies, pouring tremendous light into the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies. The result is a deep clearing and realignment with your innate soul blueprint and connection with your Higher Self. Profoundly relaxing and peaceful, this sound meditation and candlelight ceremony is a time to create and hold powerful intentions in sacred space accompanied by the resonant healing vibrations of over 40 master alchemy crystal singing bowls.
There is a package discount for both events. Ashana is available for private sound healing and one-on-one personal crystalline activation session which can be scheduled through her website http://www.AshanaMusic.com.
Classically trained, with a degree in Voice from the prestigious Mannes College of Music in New York City, Ashana rose to the very top of the healing music genre with her first three CD recordings, “All Is Forgiven,” “Jewels of Silence,” and “Beloved.” Her last release, “The Infinite Heart,” was well-received by critics and called “a must-have for every CD collection!”. Her intuitive vocal improvisations and masterful crystal bowl playing are featured in the documentary film “The Sound You Feel: Vibrations of Healing,” released by Beyond Words. Ashana travels across the US, Canada and abroad offering concerts, crystalline activations and sound healing workshops.
“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.”
