Sound Bowl Grounding Meditation:

Offered by Ashlee Rivera(she/her), a Houston-based producer, sound bowl practitioner, and founder of fortune cookie business, The Fortunate Cookies! Ashlee will be grounding the community with a sound healing meditation to kick off our Open Mic!


Ashlee Rivera, a multidisciplinary artist born in the vibrant city of Houston, Texas. Working as a sound energy practitioner since 2016, she nurtures her deep connection to her indigenous Mexican ancestry through sound. Ashlee's journey has been guided by her passion for holistic healing, self-discovery, spirituality and her mission to empower marginalized communities.

Ashlee's work extends far beyond her healing sessions as she dedicates herself to facilitating transformative women's wellness events specifically designed for women of color. 

Her events provide a sacred space for black and brown women to embrace their generational magic, fostering a sense of liberation and empowerment. In her role as a sound energy practitioner Ashlee also works at Meadows Outpatient Behavioral Health facility guiding trauma-informed patients through the transformative power of sound meditation. Incorporating sound healing into these programs helps individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, and nervous system dysregulation find solace and centeredness. She is providing them with access to alternative healing modalities.
