humanitarian, followed a
spiritual path similar to Sasha's (see Sasha
Bio) yet different. Janet, logical, psychic and intuitive, attracted many who were drawn to talk to her about their innermost thoughts and feelings, even as a very young child. A
counselor and therapist since childhood, she began to
formalize her training when she met Dr. Lessin in
1997. An avid reader hungry for knowledge, she

At 13, saddened with the obvious hypocrisy of her religion, Janet broke free from tradition and embarked on a spiritual path, reading hundreds of books on every subject, including psychology.
She further educated herself through seminars,
classes, private counseling and spiritual growth work,
healing herself from childhood abuse issues and
developing skills to facilitate others. She has been a natural counselor throughout life in all of her jobs, be it a legal secretary or computer programmer. Incorporating psychology and utilizing her natural sensitivity, she
has been a healing force for many; helping them get through the difficulties of the day and return home to face relationships, friends and family.

urged her to begin a class. Janet 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. Lacking the
psychological skills to effectively help her severely
traumatized students, Janet vowed to further her
studies to develop them.
In 1991, Janet had series of of mysterious dreams recalling previous incarnations and strange, ritualistic, lovemaking practices. That same year, she met a man from Hawaii
who could astraly project to her at will.
Working with this master, she developed her ability to
consciously connect and began a series of astral experiences where they became etheric lovers,
which awakened her kundalini energy. The energies were startling, puzzling and disturbing, for they rocked reality as she knew it. Yet she knew, this had to be real.
experience inspired her to move to Hawaii to continue
her studies in person. Following her inner
guidance, she was led to books and videos where she discovered that her remembrances of previous lives and astral experiences were teaching her about
tantra. She had never even heard
that word before.
Arriving in Honolulu in 1993, Janet discovered a
polyamory group which was just forming called Pali
Paths. She soon became a co-facilitator in this
alternative relationship support group.
Initially attendance was small, but with perseverance,

her great love of technology, Janet became an internet relations counselor on AOL
(firstname.lastname@example.org) in 1995. The spontaneity of IM's (Instant Messages) and the anonymity of the internet led to thousands of "true confessions" from those struggling with unhappy relationships, unfulfilled desires, sexual frustration and dysfunction and infidelity. She did the best she could to help. She knew there had to be more she could do.
In the summer of 1997, Janet met Dr. Sasha
Lessin, one of the foremost tantra educators and psychological counselors in the modern world.
They fell in love at first sight and were wed a few
months later. Immediately they began teaching together; combining their diverse healing and spiritual paths. Together (clients and participants in their weekend and week-long tantra monthly seminars were their guinea pigs) the Lessins further developed the synergy of tantra and relations counseling to its present form,
