Sri Jana, aka Jane Barthelemy, is an intuitive medium, author, Buddhist practitioner, teacher, channel, artist, and healer. She teaches transformational healing to align the body, mind, and spirit.
Her life path includes a deep commitment to be free of preconceptions and limiting thoughts, to allow healing shifts to take place gently and permanently without effort or invasion. A certified BodyTalk Practitioner, Accunect practitioner, certified 3rd degree Reiki Master, Qigong Guide, and MBA, Sri Jana is a lifetime practitioner of Tibetan Buddhist meditation for almost 50 years. She trains people how to listen deeply and observe quietly without judgment or opinion.
Sri Jana’s journey to spiritual teaching has been circuitous and surprising.
Sri Jana grew up in a non-traditional family of scientists, world travelers, artists, educators and independent thinkers. She studied music, languages, and writing, receiving her BS in Opera and Russian, and MBA from Indiana University.
She began her inner journey under Swami Rudrananda, known as Rudi. The first American-born Swami, Rudi was a brilliant renegade master who integrated many Tibetan and Indian traditions into a highly effective practice for modern times. Sri Jana continued her Buddhist studies with Lama Tshering Wangdu Rinpoche, a lineage holder of the Longchen Nyingthig, Shije, and Chöd traditions.
A life-long practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism for nearly 50 years, Sri Jana is also a trained chef. She has her MBA and worked for 10 years as CFO and partner of the original Rudi’s Bakery. An artist and jewelry designer, Sri Jana created Marco Polo Designs, an international Venetian glass jewelry business. The discovery of her opera voice took her to Italy, where she sang major soprano roles. Click on the Diva picture to hear a sample aria.
Personal illness led Sri Jana to a deep interest in physical health and its intimate relationship to mental and spiritual balance. Her journey of complete self-healing from cancer, multiple food allergies, chronic fatigue, total adrenal failure, digestive collapse, multiple food-chemical sensitivities, frozen shoulders, and shingles, gives Sri Jana a unique perspective of a true healing path.
Sri Jana practices Energy Medicine to align the body to spirit. She also offers a Comprehensive Health Scan, Food and Nutrient Sensitivity Testing (a personalized dietary test using electronically imprinted vials to analyze optimum personal diet.) Jane also offers treatments in BodyTalk, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Kodaishin X-Meridian Therapy, Chinese Medicine without Needles, Kinesiology, Personalized Weight Loss, Diet Re-patterning, Detox Cleanse, Past Life Clearing, and Post-Surgery Scar therapy. The focus of Sri Jana’s work is energetic, to address the deeper mental and emotional aspects of personal health and transformation.
Sri Jana is a prolific writer with a passion for beauty, joy, and sensuous food. Drawing on her inventive spirit and her training as a chef, she wrote two cookbooks with hundreds of healthy recipes free of gluten, grains, sugar, dairy or processed ingredients. Sri Jana’s recipes are so flavorful and delicious, they defy the definition of “health food”. Her books Paleo Desserts, and Good Morning Paleo, are available wherever books are sold, published by Da Capo Press/Hachette Books. Her website JanesHealthyKitchen, is a rich resource for lifestyle guidance, new techniques, and hundreds of original recipes. Her blog recently won the prestigious award by CV Magazine for “Most Innovative Healthy Food and Lifestyle Blog in North America”.
Sri Jana is married to Bhutanese Lama Dungtsho, aka Lama D. Together they offer books, workshops and tours in Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet, and Bali, related to healthy living and the Buddhist path. Sri Jana offers distance healings and trainings via Skype, Zoom, and YouTube.
Her upcoming books include “Buddha Speaks”, a collection of channeled passages and authentic quotes direct from the Master. Her books “From the Kingdom of Happiness – The Bhutan Travel Cookbook”, and “Heal Your Past Lives” offer a fresh new perspective on inner healing and the Buddhist path. Lama D and Sri Jana reside in Paro, Bhutan.
