The Open Heart Holiday Concert


Ashana is coming. Weaving together soaring, angelic vocals and the celestial sound of crystal singing bowls, Ashana will be featured in The Open Heart Holiday Concert, brought to us this December 6 at 3pm by Holly House Center for Integrated HealthCare on the campus of St. Catherine University. Ashana is a premiere healing music artist of our time. Her music lifts the soul.

Honoring sacred songs, chants and prayers from all faiths, Ashana crafts a luminous sonic tapestry that soothes and opens the heart and enfolds the listener in a transcendent experience of the Divine and a direct experience of the Soul. From her haunting rendition of the Lord’s Prayer in the original Aramaic, to a Sufi chant, Latin verse, Gaelic song and Eastern mantra, Ashana blends Western and ethnic instruments with the unique drone of crystal singing bowls to create transcendent music for healing, relaxation, and meditation.

Ashana has received international acclaim for her CD recordings All Is Forgiven, Jewels of Silence, Beloved, The Infinite Heart, The Illuminated Path, and her ground-breaking new CD, River of Light. Her music is featured in the documentary film The Sound You Feel: Vibrations of Healing. Her live performances have been called “powerful” and “deeply transformative.”

Music will be complemented by inspirational texts read by Joan Steffend, author, speaker and peace seeker, and Dr. Patricia Lawler, clinic director of Holly House and speaker.

Dr. Lawler was moved to offer our community this concert event in the hope of helping our journeys through the holiday season get off to a beautiful start. She prays that the memories of The Sound of Ashana and these Readings will continue to warm and open your heart into the New Year, and that this concert may even lead you on a path toward healing body, mind, and spirit.

Tickets are $69. Event details are available at:
