the gentle ways is home to the music and art of Sean Conrad, Ashan, and gkfoes vjgoaf. all work is made out of openness and a desire to share the love and magick in my life with all. there is more info about the different areas of work throughout the site and a Store for music, books, and zines.

the Ashan band is looking to play as many shows in as many creative ways and places as possible
Ancient Forever is the newest offering from Ashan. Exploring the deep energies of the Earth, the hidden beings, and the magicks that bind us all. Essentially, this music has been about getting in touch with life in all its forms and formlessness. You can buy the cassette at Inner Islands.
