She began her inner journey with Swami Rudrananda, known as Rudi. She lived in his Rudrananda ashram for 30 years, where the daily discipline included morning and evening meditation, breathing, Ayurvedic studies, and service. Rudi was a brilliant renegade “heavyweight” master, the first American-born Swami. He studied with Tibetan Lamas, Gurdjieff, and Mahasiddhi Baghavan Nityananda, after whose death, he received sanyas from Swami Muktananda. Rudi integrated many traditions into a practical, creative Kundalini practice for modern enlightenment. Sri Jana continued her Buddhist studies with Lama Tshering Wangdu Rinpoche, lineage holder of the Longchen Nyingthig, Shije, and Chöd traditions.
