    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    The Ritual Retreats are luxurious, bi-annual, house party style retreats of 8-10 guests on a private estate of 1500 acres in Cordoba Spain with a team of 5 master specialists in energy work and holistic well-being.

    The team comprises: myself, James Philip, Katrin Hempel, Enrique Cortedallas, Michael Bartelle and Laura Jones who come together to co-create pure alchemy in mind, body and soul.

    Personally tailored long weekends for corporate clients and families are also available.

    a proportion of your class fee and product sales go directly to support innocent children trapped in war torn places across the Globe - thank you - as we find peace in ourselves so we help spread peace across the planet

    “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

Vibrational medicine

“I am proposing that we re-conceive the dream. That we consider what would happen if security were not the point of our existence. That we find freedom, aliveness and power not from what contains, locates or protects us but from what dissolves, reveals and expands us.” – Eve Ensler

Jane Kersel has a credible and deeply mystical understanding of the esoteric and romantic worlds of sensory and energetic experience and healing (the yin – female energy) and the pragmatic workings of our minds and psyches (the yang – male energy).

She is neither a spiritual teacher, nor a yoga teacher per se, though she can connect you deeply to those energies within you.  Above all else, she is a mystic, a healer, a teacher of consciousness and a fire starter for passion and change; guiding her clients to awaken to the parts of them that may have been asleep, unexpressed and un-lived and to connect to a level of bliss from which to live from.

Vibrational energy work,  encapsulates Jane’s vision.   At her shala, The Ishy, she creates a spiritual choreography that releases, unfolds and connects a person to the feminine energetic pulse within. Classes are a sacred space, where miracles unfold and all the light floods in to become a healing realm that builds on each visit.

The spiritual parts of us are  exquisitely beautiful but they are parts of us, not all of us. They don’t know how to raise our children, talk to our partners or put food on the table.  Yet we equally over-identify with intellect and the mind: over-analysing our feelings and justifying, over allowing them to just move through us.

When we are inhabiting the softness of our bodies, we are home, deep in the landscape of the heart, we can soften and learn to live from a grounded moment by moment reality in which to truly feel into our lives and live from.

Jane’s practices evoke magic, inviting us to move in the world in a radical spirit of adventure, integrating the play and the dance between all our noble and at times, fearful and confused selves.

Her process creates a high vibrational healing space of awareness and connection, clients find their lives opening up in a beautiful and profound way: their relationship to themselves and others, richer, touching a deeper resonance in their less defended hearts.

Her personal vision is the same that she holds for her clients, embodying the romance of life, encouraging mature, self-directed awareness, seeking always to meet life with open palms, to embrace and hold in her hands the polarity of the different selves within her and to softly and sweetly dance with joy and light between them.

“The Goddess (the Sacred Feminine), is the movement of the spiral. Like so many things in nature – plants, the seasons, the moon – the Goddess moves in her circular motion through dark and light, through death and resurrection, trusting in the darkness as much as in the light. She lives in the present and evaluates in the moment. What is right today may be wrong tomorrow. She lives by the spirit and not by the law. Therefore she demands constant awareness and spontaneity. She loves the potential in things: the possibilities in the growing plant, the growing child, the growing hopes and dreams. She trusts life, trusts change, trusts love and holds nothing static. She loves and lets go. She loves with her whole Being so that her vulnerability becomes her greatest strength.” – Marion Woodman 



Jane's Philosophy

At the core of Jane’s world is the passion of the creative spirit – a constantly evolving and expanding energy that encourages us to soften into the ebb and flow of life, to blossom into grace and move out of story – what the ancient mystics would call self-mastery and enlightened living.

Jane’s is a seer and channeller of energy: her ability is in sensing patterns: whether they be in our bodies, our energetic imprint, or our mindsets.  In her classes and private work, Jane channels and calls on the Sacred Feminine, to awaken and heal through grace and beauty.

It is living at the highest creative and tantric 5D state – alive to the senses, meeting the world through sensuous feeling, tenderness and beauty, relating deeply and loving as a state of our deepest being.  This energy enthuses, creates a cadence and weaves a radiating circle around the women who come to class and/or attend the retreats – a sisterhood – the tantrika tribe – with a heart-felt desire to:

  • move towards the heart that defends, closes and protects and invite it to open wider in those hours
  • feel the contraction, lean into it and release as, we dive into the unknown void
  • weave magic, to live and nurture nature with right minds, right hearts, right actions
  • anchor ourselves on the exquisite path, the teachings and return to greater faith
  • hold high space, to catch ourselves when we fall and reframe with grace
  • leave the sensation, the moment, the feeling pure: untainted by commentary or arrogant grabbing to control and own
  • accept what comes not in a passive way, instead to use it as fuel for a self-directing gauge for change
  • move beyond the mind that defends, attacks and differentiates and find instead the mind that unites, communes and creates uniqueness over out-moded convention
  • deepen awareness and presence, to truly feel the gift and beauty of our lives even in their darkest hour
  • cultivate a deeply loving and nurturing relationship to the energy housed in our bodies and in turn, a positive relationship to our bodies
  • move our bodies mindfully and with respect – powerful strength through drawing tenderness and grace, over pushing, striving and forcing
  • fully feel  the entire field of sensory vibration and feelings pulsing through us regardless of their hue
  • practice silent listening through all of the senses and cultivate deep stillness
  • walk in both worlds – the sacred and the profane and heal the rift between confusion and delusion
  • feel the grip, to breathe into it and breathe it out, palms wide open in trust to the dance of the divine
  • become an inner peace warrior and settle our own inner wars without lashing outwards
  • be creative, find wonder in the mundane and become less predictable to our partners, our children, our cats and dogs
  • recognise that life and energy moves through our hands like water
  • lead by example – we are all beginners on our own exquisite paths
  • rediscover play…to be as light as a child, not taking life/ourselves too seriously
  • feel the passion and the fire for life at every step
  • live life saturated with the absolute – suppressing and fearing nothing because we’ve looked it in the eye

Weaving Light Spaces For others

Jane designs and sources beautiful things to create light-filled spaces that resonate at a high vibration, they feed our senses, connect us to spirit and ignite our souls.  Creating beauty in a home, at her retreat estate, in yoga studios or other sweet spots.

“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

“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”
