One Root Sacred Sounds, located in Portland, Oregon, consists of Ryan Powell and Kristin Bowen Powell. They offer Dreamtime Healing Concerts, which combine sacred sound healing with guided Qigong meditations and messages from spirit, at festivals, yoga studios, ceremonies and events around the Northwest. They have been a regular part of the Sunday morning Awakening at the Beloved Festival and Jai Ganesh (under the name 'Within Sound Healing' with Jon Reinschreiber) for the past two years, have recently played for the National Labyrinth Society gathering at the Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon, and have shared their sacred sound ceremony with many in Portland, Ashland, the Oregon Coast and beyond.
Ryan Powell is a multi-instrumentalist, a teacher of Shamanic Qigong and Taiji, and provides healing sessions which fuse sacred sound, I Ching divination, Qi healing techniques, and shamanic work. He currently teaches regular classes in Qigong and meditation in Portland at Cloud Moss Temple. Ryan has travelled the world seeking inspiration and connection with a greater stream of wisdom, exploring a special connection with his Celtic roots and his Daoist lineage. His instruments include guitar, didjeridu, percussion, flutes, low whistle, fujara, futujara, moon lute, dan moi, Tibetan bowls, monochord table, gongs, rattles, singing drums and more.
Kristin Bowen Powell is a vocalist, writer of children's stories, and yoga teacher who plays harmonium and percussion instruments along with her vocals for One Root. She brings through songs inspired by nature, her qigong and yoga practice, and a sense of connection and compassion with all beings.
