Jane Barthelemy, also known as Srijana, is a dedicated writer, 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, licensed Accunect practitioner, certified 3rd degree Reiki Master, Qigong Guide, and MBA, Jane is a lifetime practitioner of Tibetan Buddhist meditation for almost 50 years. Jane trains people how to listen deeply and observe quietly without judgment or opinion.
Jane’s journey to spiritual teaching has been circuitous and surprising.
Jane 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. Jane 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, Jane 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, Jane created Marco Polo Designs, an international Venetian glass jewelry business. The surprising 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 Jane 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 Jane a unique perspective of a true healing path.
Jane 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 Jane’s work is energetic, to address the deeper mental and emotional aspects of personal health and transformation.
Jane 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. Jane’s recipes are so flavorful and delicious, they defy the definition of “health food”.
