JANET KIRA LESSIN�s life path and spiritual evolution emerged from extensive study of the consciousness growth and high spiritual arts field and through intense meditation practices.

In 1997 Janet and Sasha met in a tantra workshop he taught. They fell in love and married soon afterwards. Sasha tutored Janet extensively in tantra.

Janet, naturally tantric, joined Sasha as his co-teacher and presenter and together they developed, All-Chakra Tantra, a system activating and integrating awareness on all levels of human consciousness. As part of Janet�s clearing, the Lessins employed the methods of All-Chakra Tantra, which they fine-tuned and further developed them as Janet worked through her sexual abuse traumas and learned how to facilitate others� reprogramming.

Janet joined Sasha in Drs. Hal and Sidra Stones' advanced Voice Dialogue facilitators' groups.

Janet systematically worked through the five levels of Tantra Certification in the School of Tantra, and attained the status of Professor of Tantric Studies.

SASHA (ALEX) LESSIN, PH. D. (U.C.L.A.) a psychotherapist and relationship counselor since the 1970s, knew how to help people work out their differences, compromise, agree. He studied counseling with Drs. Irv Katz and David Quigley (Hypnotherapy), Stan Grof (Holotropic Breathing), Roger Woolger (Jungian Past Life Regression), William Baldwin (Spirit Releasement), Hal and Sidra Stone (Voice Dialogue), Melanie Sears (Non-Violent Compassionate Communication) and Gary Kraftsow (Yoga). Sasha knew how to help lovers resolve their differences, work things out, compromise, create win-win scenarios, even to re-connect emotionally. But he didn��t know how to get them to re-connect sexually.

He also studied sacred loving/tantra--with Lori Grace, Robert Frey, Paul and Niyaso Carter and, especially, Charles and Caroline Muir�so he learned to connect and teach others to connect sexually. Charles Muir told Dr. Lessin it was easy to get lovers to re-connect sexually but tantra alone didn�t get them through disagreements. It was hard for them to share tantric sex when they felt emotionally distant.

Sasha introduced tantra into his counseling. Now he starts lovers
sessions with tantric breathing. Couples resolve their bonding patterns, emotional needs and practical concerns. Finally, they begin a tantric lovemaking ritual. Sasha leaves the room and the lovers consumate their connection. Result: counseling clients work things out and feel close again too. Sasha also accompanyed Charles and Caroline Muir, delivered communications lessons and coached couples in the Muirs' Tantra seminars around the U.S. and in Mexico. Result: Tantra students were worked out their relationship difficulties.

Sasha is certified as a yoga instructor by Gary Kraftsow, M.A. (Viniyoga), and incorporates the physical training of yoga for opening energy centers (chakras) and moving psychospiritual energies through the body and synergizing these energies with those of lovers.

You may contact Sasha at sasha@tantraconnection.com. He lives and loves with his wonderful wife, Janet Kira Lessin and their extended family in their home/school/community/spiritual growth center in Maui, Hawaii.

JANET KIRA LESSIN, President and Director of the School of Tantra (founded 1997).  In 2002 she and Sasha founded the World Tantra Association, World Peace Association and World Polyamory Association. Janet manages all four associations.  The associations represent their vision of personal healing, interpersonal synergy, global transformation and universal peace in our lifetime. 

  Janet and Sasha first wed October 16, 1997 at the Celebration of Eros at Harbin Hot Springs and married again at the Cupid's Chapel, Los Vegas September 20, 2000. 

Janet emerged totally aware of her origins. She could always travel astrally.  She remembered many of her past lives. Guides, angels, ghosts, inter-dimensional and extra-terrestrial beings contacted Janet with words, visions and telepathic transmissions.

Janet noticed other people couldn't sense the entities that came freely to her. These people, especially her mother, punished her for revealing her non-ordinary experiences.  She decided to hide these experiences. She knew intuitively the time would come when people would accept paranormal experiences .

Janet--logical, psychic and intuitive�even when she was a very young child, drew many to talk to her about their innermost thoughts and feelings. Her soul essence showed through; her inner wisdom, guidance and natural strength apparent. However, her mother who was very conservative and Christian, feared Janet�s awareness and tried to make her conform.

At 13, saddened with the obvious hypocrisy of her religion, Janet broke free from tradition and embarked on a spiritual path. She read thousands of books on every subject, including psychology. She observed the intense emotionally, physical and psychological pain and suffering of friends and family and knew there had to be other options. Janet, appalled, was forced to view Vietnam War death statistics broadcast like football scores at her nightly, family dinner table. Overwhelmed in sorrow, she vowed to find avenues for conflict resolution and peace, within herself, her family and the planet. She dedicated her life to healing.

Janet�s economically challenged family couldn�t send her to college, so she furthered her education through books, videos, seminars, classes, private counseling and spiritual growth work. She freed herself from childhood abuse issues and developed skills to facilitate others. She discovered other people reflected parts of her and as she worked healing others, she healed herself--one layer at a time.

Janet coupled psychology with her natural sensitivity in all of her traditional jobs, becoming a major healing force for many. She helped colleagues transcend their workday difficulties and go home more centered to face relationships, friends and family.

Since Pittsburgh, where Janet was raised, was and still is a hot spot for UFO�s, Janet, naturally curious and part mad-scientist, thoroughly researched UFOs until she became an expert in the field. She started The Penn State UFO Discussion Group in 1991. In the safety of her group, many students revealed their experiences, from sightings to abductions to physical markings received in their sleep. Janet recognized at that time that she lacked the psychological skills to effectively help her severely traumatized students and vowed to further her studies to develop them.

In 1991 following a year of daily meditation, Janet had series of of mysterious dreams recalling previous incarnations and strange, ritualistic, lovemaking practices. That same year she got her first internet account from Penn State and met an astral projection master from Hawaii in a discussion group. He could project to her at will. She learned to consciously connect with him and they became etheric lovers. These intense, intimate exchanges awakened her kundalini energy, hithertofore unknown to her. These startling experiences puzzled and disturbed her; they rocked her reality. When she tried to discuss these experiences with her friends, they judged and criticized her. Although her mother had succeeded in stifling her, making her doubt her reality when she was a helpless child, Janet was now too strong and aware. She knew her experiences were valid and real.

These experiences led her to divorce her conventional husband and move to Hawaii to pursure her romance and studies in person with her guide. She also studied books and videos which stimulated her to remember that previous lives and astral experiences involved tantra. She�d never heard the word "tantra" before, yet sensed tantra was a major system to heal herself and the Earth.

When Janet arrived in Honolulu in 1993, she discovered Pali Paths, a just-forming polyamory group. She facilitated the alternative relationship support group to help her and others understand relationship dynamics and options. One option, polyamory, like tantra, is a high-spiritual path that honors individuality and choice. At first only a few people attended Janet�s poly group, but the group persevered and promoted intelligently and word got out. Attendance grew to several hundred. Janet moved to Maui, but Pali Paths continues on Oahu.

Janet pursued her love of technology; she established of her AOL account (planetsexy@aol.com) in 1995 became internationally-known as an internet relations counselor. IM's (Instant Messages) provided spontaneity and the anonymity of the internet led to thousands of "true confessions" from those struggling with unhappy relationships, unfulfilled desires, sexual frustration, dysfunction and infidelity. Janet did the best she could to help and she did help many. However, she knew there had to be more she could do.

She finally found the answer to her life-long quest how she could help humanity in Summer, 1997. That�s when she met Dr. Sasha Lessin, one of the foremost tantra educators and psychological counselors in the world. She completed her quest for divine love, intense intimacy and truthful communication. They fell in love at first sight and wed a few months later, twin flames reunited after centuries lost, found; their individual life paths had converged and they immediately began teaching together, combining their diverse healing and spiritual paths. They perfected their team work with clients and participants in their weekend and week-long tantra monthly seminars. The Lessins further developed the synergy of tantra and relations counseling to its present form, All-Chakra Tantra, the guiding framework for the School of Tantra.
