    Welcome

    To the space where the pure light beam of awareness gets fully turned on and we make the invisible visible.

    A place where spirituality gets real, useable and playful.  Where true kind power and beauty comes from reaching inwards and upwards to a higher ground, finding a deep inner peace there and learning to operate from the light of your soul rather than just personality, ego and fear – a place where you feel sensuous, passionate, vibrant and juicy.

    “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin

    Light – Energy – The Juice Of Life

    Quantum science and the esoteric worlds agree - nothing is solid in the universe.

    The strongest magnifying glass in the world shows that everything is pure vibration and light, oscillating at different frequencies made up of differing amounts of the 5 elemental compounds – earth, water, fire, air, and ether. How we think and sense: see, feel, look, hear, taste and intuit has a direct impact on the energetics and vibration within us.

    All disease starts inside a body besieged by external and internal stress, creating a low resonance, stagnation, inflammation, acidity, inflexibility, anxiety, lack of creativity and ultimately dis-harmony and dis-ease. Get conscious – get real –  get juicy and create more light.

    Inspire

    Most work-outs focus on the body as a machine - the mind the master controller - dynamic male energy - strive, win, do it - music’s pumping, endorphins rush and you feel so high it must be doing good.

    Connecting to the male is a beautiful counter balance if you’re already in touch with the light of the feminine: walking in the world with trust, leaning back into the sensuousness of your body and feeling into the landscape of your heart.

    At the Ishy we inspire work-ins – a return to the feminine energy – riding on the wave of spiraling, organic movement linked with the sacredness of the breath – a prayer in motion. We become stronger by being softer, fitter by being lighter, juicer by being freer. “If you just set people in motion they’ll heal themselves.” Gabrielle Roth

    From there becoming stronger, fitter, lighter, leaner, more playful, juicier, sensuous and vibrant than you ever felt possible.

    Unfolding

    We are so much more than the apparent solidity of our thoughts, body and emotions. Charismatic people have an intensity of light flowing through them that draws in people like moths to a flame.

    Energetic blockages are like veils that mask and stop light entering: eating fast foods that slow digestion, holding repressed emotions in our cells and negative thoughts in our minds. Here we are, a planet packed with people and electronic connecting wizardry never more lonely from ourselves and each other.

    “We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive. Where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens.” Anon

    Send someone light, shed some light -The Tantrika Candle Collection by Jane Kersel

    Shed light, send light, Cultivate a sensuous sacred space, a ritual, pause and set your purest clearest intention

    We are made of light, our DNA is a conductor of light, negative thoughts, heavy foods, not moving, trap light making us feel inert, lethargic, stuck in thoughts.

    “….Each person shines with his or her own light.  No two flames are alike.  There are big flames and little flames, flames of every colour….

     

    Some people’s flames are so still they don’t even flicker in the wind, while others have wild flames that fill the air with sparks.  Some foolish flames neither burn nor shed light, but others blaze with life so fiercely that you can’t look at them without blinking and if you approach, you shine in fire.”  Eduardo Galeano

    So light the flame of your deepest desire, breathe it fully into you, let go of story, hold to a higher place within and learn to resonate and live from that new place beaming your light

    “For the teacher-coach-practitioner, life manifests as dance.... She is not stuck on any one way. The teacher is a mystic, an inquirer, an inspirer, committed to aliveness.

    She calls us awake beyond the readily apparent and points us all, including herself, homeward. She lives at the edge of life as a creative act, continuous and evolving… She teaches from awe, and not from her opinions, beliefs, advice. She does whatever will forward the life of the one or ones she is coaching.

    She provides a compelling invitation, an urgency to all… to open now in this moment, here in this place, not some other day, some other where.  This is the holy moment…  The teacher-coach calls us home again and again and again to this is it, life is now, right here.” – Dianne Connelly

    Move – Act – Lighten Up

    The body loves to move – don’t chain it to your desk. The heart beats with joy - don’t beat it with sticks of negativity. To breathe in deeply, to inspire is to draw life in and go further than the glass-ceiling of our minds.

    Pause, listen – there’s a calling. Western medicine doesn’t have the answer and why should it? We can’t expect to run our bodies into the ground, fill our heads with stuff, strive, close our hearts, stuff down feelings, abuse our bodies, without some sense of internal combustion creating stress and stagnation.

    To be “cured” is a mind statement that fixes to a linear point – life’s a moveable feast – cultivate a continuous loving relationship with yourself – meditate not medicate, don’t analyse until you’re paralysed. Beam the light into the dark places that scare you and lighten up.

    Trust the mystic in you

    Esoteric practices are by necessity mostly non logical-mind orientated - they deal with the language and symbolism of the sub-conscious: energy, light, feelings and the sensory experience of ourselves and our worlds.

    There’s a gentle balance to respect here: that the beauty and power of these practices aren’t solidified into set procedure and standardised into ‘one-size fits all’ methodology. The juice and alchemy these practices bring ignite transformation and inspire the subconscious mind to shift and heal.

    If we try to consolidate them into theory and explanation then the disconnect we feel between our souls, our heads, our hearts will become far greater. “Close the language-door and open the love-window.” – Rumi

    TURN IN – TURN ON – GO BEYOND

    In the busy-ness of our days it’s key to find a place where we can literally step off the grid, unwind, recalibrate, reconnect back to the sacredness of the natural world and the beauty of our inner worlds, so we can develop greater self mastery and a deeper understanding of the energies that direct our lives

    Peace

    10% of your class fee and product sales go directly to support innocent children trapped in war torn places across the Globe - thank you.

    “it may sound self indulgent: war is raging and you are doing yoga. But cultivating a practice that opens you up to the direct experience of war and peace in your body in an honorable and even necessary way to go….in a world of rap wars, gender wars, star wars, world wars, hip wars, head wars, heart wars and holy wars,

    you need a way to access the part of you that is connected to the whole, to find a proactive way to create peace in your own piece of the world. Freedom comes when you are receptive to the voices of the oppressed, whether they be in your hip, your mother or the downtrodden people of the world.”  Gabrielle Roth

My Philosophy

  • Inspire

  • Unfold

  • Love

  • Shine

Welcome to where we weave:

  • ….presence…
  • ….light…
  • ….love…
  • ….joy….
  • ….beauty…
  • ….space…
  • ….time…
  • ….liberation…
  • ….luminosity…
  • …inspiration…
  • ….rapture….
  • ….ritual….

 

The threads we weave are based on pure practices of Kashmiri Shaivism Tantra (to weave…to stretch without a break). Each practice is a thread, a sutra,  for mind, body, soul and heart, that forms a braid, that weaves a tapestry of total presence, joy and grace – an holistic thread that breathes us back home to ourselves.    These are mini, in-life practices that are refined yet playful, that embrace and celebrate the mind, the body, the soul in it’s totality, that makes no part wrong, that seeks to embrace and integrate the shadow and bring us home to ourselves in each present moment – to be real – and to meet another in that same energetic – not seeking to change them.   A deep embrace and  honouring of the divine feminine and the unfolding and heart-centered depths that she can lead men and women to.

 

“If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place.”  Ekhart Tolle

 

 

 

 

I am the one:

  • who gives you a thread of light when you get lost in your own shadow….
  • .who helps weave the thread of calm back into busy tight-knit minds….
  • who finds the knots in body and psyche that stops the flow of spirit….
  • who helps you find the thread that weaves your dreams into reality….
  • who shows you the thread of your deepest truth hidden amongst your layers…..
  • who helps you befriend the inner patriarch so your inner male becomes an alley not a foe….
  • who reconnects you back to the soft thread of tenderness that melts your judgment….
  • who helps you discover the thread of love that unravels the hard edges of your heart.

Here I am

Here I am

The Invitation

To weave these sacred threads into our lives,  we are invited to follow a daily ritual – of coming home to ourselves  – self-honouring, self-nourishing – a natural shedding of the old – a natural revealing of a self-directed person – sacred, strong, a warrior of the light and love, courageous, connected, graceful, beaming that light:

  • to accept what comes not in a passive way, instead to use it as fuel as a self-directing gauge for change
  • to daily deepen awareness and presence, to truly feel the gift and beauty of our lives even in their darkest hour
  • to cultivate a deeply loving and nurturing relationship to our bodies – the vehicle that allows a person to be in a healthy relationship to themselves and from there to another
  • to move our bodies mindfully and with respect – powerful strength through tenderness and grace, not pushing, striving or forcing
  • to fully feel  the entire field of sensory vibration and feelings pulsing through us regardless of their hue
  • to learn the art of presence and to truly listen and observe each situation as a whole, unfolding
  • to walk in both worlds simultaneously – the sacred and the profane
  • to feel the grip, to breathe into it and breathe it out, unfolding palms wide open in trust to the dance of the divine
  • to heal the rift between confusion and delusion
  • to move beyond the mind that defends, attacks and differentiates and find the mind that unites and communes
  • to move towards the heart that closes and protects and invite it to open wider in those hours
  • to find wonder in the mundane
  • to sweep aside the numbness of routine and boredom and to be creative amongst the drudgery
  • to shake things up and become less predictable to your cat, your partner, your children
  • to feel contraction, to lean into it and release as we dive into the unknown void
  • to wake up each morning knowing nothing…fresh eyes for the day
  • to hold to a new thought in that moment, not the mechanical one that has stuck so long in the machinery of our minds it’s rusted over
  • to leave the sensation, the moment, the feeling pure: untainted by commentary or arrogant grabbing to control and own
  • to recognise that life moves through our hands like water and we are part of that flow
  • to practice silent listening through all of the senses
  • to lead by example – we are all beginners on our own exquisite paths
  • to live life saturated with the absolute – suppressing and fearing nothing because we’ve looked it in the eye
  • to rediscover play…to be as light as a child, not taking life/ourselves too seriously
  • to not limit ourselves by our own point of view…so that intelligence shines forth
  • no longer slicing the world between opposing notions, nations, genders, colours – evaporating cloudy filters of concepts, judgments, beliefs which rob us of our originality and uniqueness
  • to weave magic, to live and nurture nature with right minds, right hearts, right actions
  • to honour and bless the world creating harmony and beauty at each step
  • to become an inner peace warrior, to settle our own inner wars
  • to hold high space, to catch ourselves when we fall and reframe with grace
  • to anchor ourselves on the exquisite path, the teachings and return to greater faith
  • to feel the passion and the fire for life and walk to the drum of the Tantrika Tribe

Weaving Light Spaces For others

“There are…places where one breathes in spirit, places where a person can steep themselves in it, or if you prefer, where they quicken the sense of the divine in themselves. This is the greatest gift of Earth and Heaven to mankind.”

~ Louis Charpentier

Light filled sacred spaces designed by Jane, to feed the senses and ignite the soul.

“Humans, like other animals, are shaped by the places they inhabit, both individually and collectively. Our bodily rhythms, our moods, cycles of creativity and stillness, even our thoughts are readily engaged and influenced by seasonal patterns in the land… Transfixed by our technologies, we short-circuit the sensorial reciprocity between our breathing bodies and the bodily terrain.”

- David Abraham  “The Spell of The Sensuous”
