At its heart, OmTara is a healing music project in the US Pacific NW. Members of OmTara are Ashley Collins, Erik Blender, and Jack Inglis, with collaborating guest musicians. We play heart-opening music at festivals, concerts, kirtans, meditations, yoga classes & retreats Listen to OmTara's debut album "Remember Your True Name" @ omtaramusic.com
In June 2017 and 2018 we organized the first and second Resonance Restivals. Restivals are beautiful 3-day gatherings of yoga, meditation, movement, sound healing & healing music practices. Our goal for the Restival and all OmTara events is to bring together facilitators of conscious practices and performers of healing music to offer their gifts in an intimate, connected, inclusive & family-friendly retreat/festival environment. When you leave an OmTara Event or Restival, you will be rejuvenated, re-inspired & reconnected to the practices that move your mind, body, and spirit.
We created OmTara Events in the spirit of the Buddhist deity Green Tara. She is a bodhisattva, an enlightened being & female buddha, who inhabits the earthly realm to be of service to all those who suffer, and she remains in oneness with every living thing. She conveys divine wisdom and peace through compassion in action. Through OmTara Music and OmTara Events, we express profound gratitude for all the yogic, musical and spiritual practices that assist all living beings to find and embody their true path in this life. Thank you & Sat Nam!
