Nice magical event tonight hosted by Kriyanna Elumen. Great combination of training, exercises and experiences. It was a welcome change of pace (Here's the event from this evening), she's doing a special "Woman's Only" event about sacred sexuality this weekend.
I go to various events of this nature all the time with a variety of disciplines. Kriyanna has excellent perspectives, good presentation and truly brings honor and integrity to the knowledge and experiences she has acquired.
It is not often to meet someone with advanced knowledge + practical application of that knowledge. Great energy raised too.
Blessed Be and Namaste'
I'm feeling grateful for you and the space you hold and have held. I want to express my gratitude and appreciation for you and what you create. You are such an inspiration for devotional work and transformation. I'm so blessed to share time and space with you in this life. Thank you for being. Thank you for witnessing my journey. Much of my more recent transformation has been through the journey through the tree with you, which is one reason why you come to mind and heart as an ally when I am in touch with the great work and this adventure on Earth.
"Tantra Qabalah has altered my perception of reality and I never wanna go back!
The insights and shifts in perspective these practices offered me, along with the skills and tools presented, have been pivotal in my personal growth and spiritual development. I’ve learned how to manage anxiety and calm my mind enough to listen to my inner guides. I’ve learned to harness my thoughts, words, and deeds, to shape my Life to my Will, while making peace and releasing the things that I have no control over. I feel so much more capable, empowered, present, and aligned with my highest self after each of the 4 rounds I’ve participated in.
In my experiences, Tantra Qabalah’s Master Teacher Kriyanna Elumen has held herself to the highest standards one can expect of a Teacher. She knows when to hold strong boundaries and ask the tough questions, and when to encourage softness and spaciousness for the heart and soul to open, heal, and examine itself. Through her unconditional Love and acceptance of each individual and their process, and her utter devotion to assisting the awakening of every Being’s true potential, Kriyanna has created a structure and environment where one cannot help but choose: remain still and stagnant or master yourself and thrive!"

After Kriyanna's sound healing, I felt lighter and in a grounded state at the same time. When she asked me to focus on a time I felt cared for and nurtured at a young age, I couldn’t think of anything because I never had that. I think for me it was a massive realization and awakening that my life has been a continuous heartbreak and I have to release that to allow new love. I had a vision of me at 7 years old on a porch swing on a sunny day…at my childhood home…birds, breeze - and I would write songs. During the session I was feeling all emotions, flashbacks of my entire childhood etc. up to now. During this entire experience I saw myself, as I am now, walking up to younger me on that porch swing trying to give her something. By the end of the vision, I finally made it to the swing. I looked at my younger self and opened my hand and gave her this small circled light that was a sun. She smiled and I left. I think I let go of a lot of trauma during the session. It feels as though I don’t yet know how much I released. I’m in a state of what feels like my physical body is trying to align to my spiritual self. I really needed that sound healing session and I truly appreciate Kriyanna!!! It also meant a lot because she followed up and checked in with me the next day. Very sweet!
"It may seem cliché to say that “Tantra Qabalah transformed my life” but it did. It gave me tools to see myself and the way I interact with the world more clearly. It helped me understand and accept my empathic nature and learn how to care for myself so I stopped taking on all of the emotions and feelings of others around me. I still feel them, they no longer overwhelm me. What I love best is that Tantra Qabalah didn’t contradict my Christian upbringing but instead affirmed things I’d sensed and known all along at a level I didn’t even know was possible. Kriyanna Elumen is a gifted teacher who holds impeccable energetic space that allows deep healing and transformation. I recommend this journey to anyone ready to transform their life and experience healing at a deep level. This journey was the best investment I made in myself."
"Kriyanna is a mystery. Perhaps that's as it should be.How can you describe a love so vast?How can someone so powerful be so tiny? An Empress that's pint size.Leaving smiles like flower petals for everyone to share.Someone that is strong, who can be trusted near the deepest suffering, for she's as gentle as the places roses bloom.She comes and goes but is never too far. She's available for much needed encouragement.Kriyanna adheres to beauty, talking community on a beauty walk.So adult but so cherubic. She juggles rainbows until you're transported to a world of play.She'll take the weariest of travelers and turn them into sacred family members.Kriyanna's throne is built on the power of mercy. One time I acted out. I felt terrible. And I thought about how I knew she would forgive me! When you know someone will forgive you that's a sign they've always been trustworthy. I started to wonder how I could do that to a priestess sister, my forever teacher, and favorite retreat leader, and the pain of this yielded great lessons, not to take her for granted, Remembering she is the bearer of the grandest gifts..She seems to understand love instinctively, like when there's a bit of pain, or shock, but how it all goes back to the flow of love again, how it abides.With time I've come to honor more and more Kriyanna's creativity, inclusion, how she loves night owl fun, her wisdom, how she gave me my first priestess robe, how she gave me my first break as a teacher. What is a Kriyanna?A love so vast, it’s indescribable.
Kriyanna is a radiant and wonderful being! She is passionate about her work and her own journey and is incredibly delightful to be around as her energy is loving and joyful.. I highly recommend her!
Kriyanna is a full power human being, always busy learning, guiding, teaching, healing. Her scope of offerings continues to grow as her life experience furthers. I whole-heartedly recommend Kriyanna as a project leader as I have worked with her directly in collaboration and know her skills organizing people and ideas while inspiring others in the process.
"Kriyanna is an expert in her field. She listens to your needs and helps you to achieve your results."
Kriyanna is devoted to her craft, operates with the highest integrity, is kind and wise, and she gets things done! She cares about community, creativity, personal energy and truth, and crafts her life and her professional offerings around these core values. I recommend Kriyanna for any endeavor she undertakes.
With her expansive narrative and her extensive knowledge, Kriyanna sets the tone for an amazing sound Healing experience. She is a gifted Space holder, creating a deeply intimate and Rich environment. Her skill and intuition with the instruments, along with her mystical singing Carry me to other worlds and connection with deeper levels of my inner wisdom and being.
Kriyanna is a powerful healer. She brings experience, knowledge and heart to all she does. As a practitioner she creates the space for you to come into yourself, fully alive and ready to reach new depths. I have met very few who hold sacred the client space as she does. I feel safe and nurtured with her, free to be in the moment and receive the love and honor that she provides.
Kriyanna is not only a believer of teaching the art of healing, but lives her life as a perfect example. She is completely dedicated to healing and loving others. I highly recommend her for your well being.
I have been in the healing arts since 1973.
I was Asheville's (N.C.) 3rd Yoga and Meditation instructor when I moved there in 1985.
My son's father and I opened the first Acupuncture Clinic of TCM in 1985 as well.
We continued to pioneer and in 1988 opened a Health Food Store and the first Vegetarian restaurant in Asheville.
My undergraduate degree is in painting and drawing and a minor in MUSIC.
Having been around all venues of music, I was so impressed with Kriyanna and her sound events.
She is a rising light in the field of sound through voice and natural instruments.
May she continue to spread her energy of Divine Love through her musical performances.
Kriyanna is a seamstress at weaving together a room full of chaotic energy and inducing profound healing and expansion work while having fun.
I will forever be thankful to you for giving me the knowledge and guidance to practice and explore Tantric meditation of the chakras. It is an experience that I didn’t realize could exist. It provides me with warm, thrilling, and provocative feelings in the lower chakras. And as I progress to the upper chakras, the nature of my feelings change, they are expansive and euphoric.
Your style of providing knowledge and guidance whether it is one on one, or in leading a class, is filled with depth of understanding, excitement and enthusiasm, and a desire to share this with others. You are a light and an inspiration to us all.
Kriyanna is one of my favorite people because of her broad skills in so many areas: she is a teacher, healer, visionary, community builder, creative, and a fantastic mom too. Let Kriyanna just work her magic to help you become a better more empowered person. You'll laugh your way through even the hardest lessons, as she holds a powerful space for your transformational breakthroughs.
Kriyanna is a focused, intentional guide and healer. She brings innovation and insight into the groups that she leads, and I have great trust in her teaching abilities.
I had an amazing experience with Kriyanna and would recommend her as a body healer who can bring your energy back into balance!
Kriyanna is deeply passionate about the work she does and she has a commitment to her calling that shows in the way she continues to expand her knowledge and thus her offerings. She is warm, easy, and personable, while at the same time, a powerful teacher and healer.
"Kriyanna had an excellent sense of intuition when it came to both group and individual needs. She facilitated Kundalini meditation with enough verve for the enthusiast but also with enough practiced care for the beginner. I enjoyed the triune blend of The Playful, Sacred and Intimate that is so obviously Kriyanna's domain."
High praise to Kriyanna! who wraps her ceremony space in a blanket of love. Her temple container is tight, safe, secure, as well as light, open and relaxed. Kriyanna herself holds space easefully though attentively - ever present and sensitive to shifting group needs, and unafraid to meet them. Even when holding space for 30+ people, I delighted in watching her fully enjoying herself, so grounded at ease in her body and energy, (even while doing pretty *out there* work), present with the group as the group. This ain't easy, but she sure makes it look like it is.
With even the most obtrusive folks, I've witnessed her to be a tactful, clear, and compassionate communicator. One gets the sense that Kriyanna does only what she *knows*, and she knows A LOT. I appreciated her synthesis of such fields as tantra, plant medicine work, sacred song and emotional transparency into a unified shallwesay *happening* that just felt potent, accessible, and just well, right. The night was structured, though fluid. She often has just the right song, and encourages and allows others to share theirs, too.
I hold curiosity and excitement for more of her Ecstatic Awakening Meditation, in particular, which gave me permission to apply my qi gong tools to fully explore my freedom and bliss. To work with her is in itself a relief. She's not so much interested in didactic teaching, but in lighting people up "just to see what happens". In this way I feel she holds deep trust in the guiding compass of others' gifts, genius, and creative power. Ego doesn't seem to be a big player in Kriyanna's world -- she genuinely longs for us to open and awake -- which is a precious rarity amongst urban ceremonialists. I left my first Temple I Am ceremony feeling the great potential for community exploration and evolution. I'm stoked just to see what happens.
In addition to Kryianna's beautiful singing voice and musical talents she is also very sensitive to the feelings and needs of others emotionally and spiritually. This comes through in her sound healing sessions where each individual in the group feels as if she is channeling just for them, with Love and support...moving gracefully from one instrument to the other including her voice. I was left feeling transformed,grounded, and more full of light!!!
I meet Kriyanna at a New Years Eve gathering. There was just something about her I was drawn to.
I decided to make some drastic changes. Over the last 10 months my life has transformed. There were some dark days and some days I was overwhelmed with gratitude and joy.
I was however feeling so uncomfortable in my own skin. So happy for all the positive transformation, but I just had this overall feeling of not knowing where I belong.
I felt like I didn't fit anywhere, and didn't know how to stand tall in my transformation.
I also felt a little lost.
I ran across a post from Kriyanna, offering one on one sessions. I felt this spark like this is exactly what I needed. I hesitated at first.
What would that session even look like? How can I even describe what I am feeling or need? Is there even a solution? I m not even sure what I need? But the pull to go was so strong one night I just send her a message while I had the courage.
Little did I know that the time I spent with her would drastically change my life from the inside out in ways I couldn't even imagine.
I was so nervous walking into the temple.
Once we sat down there was this comfort and everything inside me started pouring out.
Every step of the way she explained every little thing we would do. There was an instant strong level of trust. She saw me just as I was, she heard me and healed me in a way that I can't describe. She set in motion huge shifts, it was like she gave me this deep understanding of what healing was.
The cords that were cut gave me this incredible sense of freedom. I have been able to open my heart to more love and more boundaries.
It was like a big ocean wave rising up, with running into people I had not seen in years. I even received calls from prison and ran into someone I had not seen in over ten years. It was like a wild fire burning. It hurt and still hurts, but I have had an overwhelming sense of gratitude and joy for the opportunities I have been given to heal past relationships, close the door on others, make apologies, reconnect and let go. It has been unbelievable. I have rewritten this post so many times. I felt like there just are not the right words to express what an incredible experience this was and what a beaming ray of love and light Kriyanna is.
I also felt like this was such a vulnerable post. I am letting go and my need for approval. It would just be too selfish to not share my testimony.
Sound healing is both simple and complex , based on scientific principles yet based in personal experience. For me it is a time of letting go and trusting your sound healer will assist you on a journey that is both safe and healing. Kyrianna is such a sound healer. From facilitating intention both personal and as a group, to providing a safe space from which to experience Chrystal singing bowls, gongs, shakers and various other instruments. A journey to healing and peace. And not to forget her beautiful voice that ties everything together. Sound healing at its best. Enjoy!
Tantric Qabalah is beyond a phenomenal journey of ascension: it is an absolute revolution of love, light, and healing tailored to your personal growth-- an experience that will propel you into a spiritual metamorphosis, only resulting with a better version of who you truly are and meant to be.
When I started the journey, I was at the lowest point of my life thus far: traumatized by horrific spiritual and emotional turmoil, I was unsure if I could ever be “whole” again. By the first meeting, a weekend initiation, I knew in my heart and soul this class was going to transform me beyond what I could even fathom at the time.
Immediately, magic began to unfold across all areas of my life. I started experiencing miracles beyond my wildest dreams and witnessing my manifestations come to life before my eyes. It was immensely clear that the Tantric Qabalah class was the direct fuel to my inner fire’s kindling.
By the conclusion of the 9-month journey, I was 180 degrees better from where I started. I underwent a personal revolution where I couldn’t even recognize the once depressed and broken person I was before the process began. It was completely outstanding, to say the least. This class, I believe, truly saved me. In all honesty, there aren’t enough words to describe how incredible Tantric Qabalah has been for me-- I’ve been left speechless and in awe more times in the past year than I can count thanks to this class.
I came into the journey knowing very little what it would entail, and could never have accurately imagined the power that these rituals and processes truly hold. There is so much to learn and unpack over and over again through “ascending the tree,” as the tools I’ve gained will be a part of my daily lifestyle and routine for years to come. This class holds so much more value than a number can actually describe. I strongly recommend this class to anyone and everyone-- it will help you wherever you are in life and will most definitely bring you closer to embodying your higher self. At the very least, that is what I can say for myself.
Do it. You will come out better than you can even imagine.
Where to even begin....
Tantric Qabalah for me was my homecoming. I have been on a spiritual path for many many years now. And my spiritual practice ebbed and flowed with my life but it was TQ that made it alive and present in me and my everyday life. TQ gave me the complement of heady knowledge and juicy sensuality paired together to truly transform and transmute things that had been stuck in me for what seems like my entire life. Today I am ascending on a path that has been walked by many before me and I feel, for many to come. Kriyanna Elumen 's ability to intuit exactly what is needed in the moment is a beauty to behold and be held by. She creates a sacred safe container to walk this path and health the deep dark work that has been gnawing at me to look at it, love it and except it and release more than I have ever been able to before. I now can not imagine my life without TQ in it. I love and what to share it so deeply that I have committed myself as an apprentice and am so looking for to our next rising ascension through the tree. If you too have been sprinkled, dipped and dunked trying to find that "thing" that will change your life look no further. This too could be your homecoming and remembrance of who you truly are.
What does this journey mean to me?
This journey is an expression of my ongoing devotion to my ever unfolding path of self discovery and self mastery. It represents my commitment to learn and apply tools that align me to my higher self and to my purpose in this life. It is where I cultivate the art of personal transformation, strengthening my connection to Source and that which feeds my soul. On this journey I expand my awareness of all of the ways I create which allows me to step into a greater place of empowerment. I am invited to courageously face my fears with Love, to have the greatest adventures I can imagine, to challenge my limitations for what I believe is possible, and to learn how to embrace the mystery through it all.
How do I envision using this experience?
I will be emptying my cup once again to freshly build upon what I have learned about myself from the last two journeys through the tree.
I have learned that the best way I can focus my energy is toward activities that connect me to source, my self love, my ability to listen and my ability to confidently express myself authentically.
I see this experience allowing more harmony, vibrancy, play, fulfillment and pleasure in my life. I will use this opportunity to creatively and carefully choose what I give power to, especially during this time of rising passion for what we collectively believe in and how we can create it.
During Cedar Bear's Gong Sounds Healing I felt a relaxing sensation in my jaw. Not the normal type of relaxation I feel during mediation, but a deeper relaxation. You see, I have a condition called TMJ, more commonly known as lock jaw, where the muscle that cushions my jaw gets stuck. I could feel this muscle relaxing and in effect the left side of my jaw becoming more even with the right. Thank you Cedar Bear!
"I have never had such deep powerful experience before with gong though I have heard a lot of gong masters all over the world. You definitely have a special gift and I really appreciate your luminous presence. I loved the invocation before and I think calling in those energies made the gong bath extra special. I felt deep deep Theta state afterwards. Similar effect I only got ones after being on Chrystal bio Matt for 10 min years ago. Nurturing healing and deeply relaxing. Your gong session is especially unique as you know a very special way to create sound like whales. I really loved it a lot. I was able to be in that deep deep state the rest of evening and even next day. I loved your grounded presence and I can see how deeply you are on a spiritual journey as healer, yogi and musician, which carries through the sounds you create. I want to thank you for that as-well. I wish you from the heart that more people would benefit this amazing gift of your gong bath and expand their healing and relaxation."
I had the pleasure of attending Cedar Bear's gong sound healing. I could physically feel the vibrations healing my sacral area after the gong healing. I have endometriosis and ovarian cysts. My period started hours after the gong session without the usual painful warning. It was also 8 days early, just in time to sync with the Full Moon. I definitely feel like Cedar's divine energy channelled through the gong helped give me a hard reset for a new clear cycle.
This was a great experience! The location was cozy and beautiful, Cedar Bear was friendly and had a very welcoming and calming demeanor. My boyfriend and I enjoyed learning about gongs and how they are made and how they help heal the energy of the body. It was a fun and unique experience! We walked into it not knowing what to expect and both walked away feeling relaxed and energized!
My spouse and I took a long weekend trip to Asheville and thankfully stumbled into Alter Alchemy. Next thing you know we're listening to beautiful crystal bowls that Cedar is pulling off the shelf, and my spouses head is literally buzzing from the sound of one particular bowl. Unfortunately we had dinner plans and had to race off but we came back to play with the crystal singing bowls and then had a private sound bath with Cedar. What a GIFT! The weekend was heavy with the Roe vs. Wade overturn and I had no idea just how unbalanced and ungrounded my central nervous system was until I walked OUT of our session with Cedar and felt like myself again. I've done several sound baths before, and Cedar's gongs were just incredible, perhaps my favorite part of the sound journey since they really enhanced and harmonized the singing bowl sounds. When it ended, we were both thinking "NOOO....." because it was so peaceful, relaxing, and centering. I know that anytime we're in Asheville, having a sound bath with Cedar is at the top of our To Do list!
This was our first gong bath experience and I wasn't sure what to expect going into it. We had a great and relaxing time, and Cedar Bear was very helpful and friendly as we settled in. The experience was akin to a relaxing spa treatment or savasana in yoga (laying still on the ground). I had no idea that a gong could produce a broad variety of noise and it was interesting to learn about the different mallets and techniques after the gong bath was over. I would definitely do this again.
Had no idea what to expect, and it was a great experience. Opened my eyes to a whole different world of the arts and sound meditation.
Very welcoming, truly in a forest sanctuary. Cedar Bear made us feel calm and comfortable as he led us through a wonderful healing experience.
Whether you are familiar with this type of experience or not, do it. Come with an open mind and it will be incredible.
A unique experience well worth doing. Keep an open mind to trying something new. It’s an experience you will never forget, like an hour long transport through the galaxy.
Great experience for meditators! Was great for me to have this experience and open up some needed insight with calming vibrational healing - raindrops falling on tin roof really added to the sounds and vibrational harmonies . Cedar Bear was very pro and a welcome connection.
Excellent experience and a first for me. I’m so glad that I tried this because I feel terrific after yesterday’s session.
Cedar Bear is very gifted and creates a sacred space to hold the energy of the sound healing. From the moment you enter his space in the forest you are in the presence of kindness, compassion and peace. Our group has experienced sound healings before and this was by far our most special experience. Cedar Bear blends his training with deep intuition to guide the healing, making it a custom, nourishing experience for his guests. If you believe in the power of energy work or simply want to enjoy a peaceful, unique, grounding experience this is an amazing opportunity. We are so grateful for the healing blessing of Cedar Bear and the gong sound bath.
Cedar Bear is a warm and gentle soul who is passionate about his expertise. They are genuine and attentive to your experience. We will definitely be back, highly encourage the experience.
Cedar Bear is a- Suspend Your Disbelief Alchemist.
Very unique and relaxing experience in a unique, magical environment.
Wonderful, moving experience. I totally recommend this sound bath!
Cedar Bear is knowledgeable & professional without being aloof. We enjoyed the experience immensely & would do it again. The space is comfortable.
We had an incredible cosmic experience with Cedar Bear. It was our first introduction to sound bath healing and I couldn’t think of a more intimate and personal setting.
