How Life Changes When a Crystal Bowl Comes to Live in Your House

The day I played my first crystal singing bowl was (without exaggeration) one of the most important days of my life. Right up there with the day, I was born and the day James and I married.

I will never forget the moment it arrived. I was living in Espanola, NM, twenty years ago, when a friend called to ask me if I’d ever heard of crystal bowls. “No,” I said, and she responded, “they are right up your alley”. So without even thinking, I ordered one, sight unseen, a 14″ classic frosted G bowl (for the throat chakra, of course :-))

Three weeks later, it showed up on my doorstep in a huge box. I carried it into the kitchen, set it on the floor, and proceeded to unpack. A shower of packing peanuts spilled onto the floor as I dug out first one box, and then another. Finally, I lifted out the bowl and set it on the table on top of its rubber ring. I took the mallet, tapped the side and in that instant, I burst into tears. I stood in front of that bowl, overwhelmed with emotion and the first thought I had was that “light had come to live in my house.” And a second later, I knew in every cell of my body that one day, I would put these bowls into music. I still cry every time I think about this.

From that moment on, my life was never the same. Three weeks later, I had seven classic frosted crystal bowls. Now, there are just shy of one hundred alchemy bowls living in my house. (Seriously, they even have their own room. 🙂 As most of you know, I’ve recorded six CDs with them, I’ve toured with them, playing concerts and offering workshops and sound healings and now I teach people all over the world about sound and vibrational healing with voice and bowls.

But more importantly, more than anything else, are the changes that happened to me personally, and continue to happen, in no small part, because these beautiful beings showed up in my life. The intangibles that are harder to calibrate or define because they are so deeply internal .. the emotional healing from decades of grief, sadness, feelings of not enough. Being finally able, after years and years of trying, to sit and meditate in the stillness of no sound. A relationship with myself and Spirit, that is increasingly more loving, kind and whole.

I can’t say that bowls did all this, but I do know that the presence of their sound vibrating in my body, mind, and spirit has helped clear so much “stuff” out of the old programming and entrain me to an expanded state of presence and awareness that I am not sure could have happened without them.

I’m so grateful. More than words could ever express.

I want to share with you a video from one of my students who had her own experience learning to play the bowls. Her life changed, too. When you learn to play with presence and awareness, extraordinary things begin to happen. This can happen for you, too.

Over the last few years of teaching, I’ve developed a training program that I am immensely proud of, called Crystal Bowl Mastery. I created this program to help sound healers, bowl players, energy healers, teachers and bowl lovers at any level of competency, learn how to play in a way that can have the greatest impact. Both on a personal level and when playing for others.

If you’re ready to take a leap, I want to invite you to join me for Level 1 Crystal Bowl Mastery this year!

Here is some of the feedback we received from our students who have taken the training:

“Crystal Bowl Mastery with Ashana should be required for every person who plays crystal singing bowls!”

“Ashana’s bowl playing, her mastery, her teaching is such a force of learning and empowerment. This training touched every layer of my being and I’ll carry it with me wherever I go.”

“… beyond amazing as well as sincerely life-changing. I learned and experienced more and at a deeper level than I was aware I could go.”

“So many trainings can be slow and sleepy … Ashana’s energy, humor and honesty kept the room engaged and asking for more. The emphasis on learning our own brilliance was the biggest take away for me. I’ve learned the bowls can amplify my brilliance, my focus and my gift to the world … which I plan to make a better place!”

Whether you’ve been playing for 5 months or 5 years, this training is for you if you are ready to grow.
