Additionally, she self-publishes her poetry and art, from home. For ten years, she edited and produced the Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK Journal, 'Self Enquiry'.
Jane began drawing, painting and writing at five years old, worked as a portraitist later on, and ploughed her talents into an extensive study of the
Ageless Wisdom, east and west. This blog is a journal of Kabbalah, Vedanta and Alchemy.

“In early 2020 I had begun a project called “The Dream
Arc” – painting 192 animal archetypes based on the I Ching’s 64 hexagrams and on Richard Rudd’s transmission of “The Gene Keys”. (Visit https://genekeysdiary.
Rutenberg a longterm member of Sufism Reoriented saw my work online, including my illustrations for a conversation I witnessed between Leonard Cohen and Ramesh Balsekar
He contacted me through facebook. We began to
correspond at the end of March 2020 as the world went into coronavirus lockdown. Mischa sent me some of his songs on his youtube website mischamuse (https://www.youtube.com/
“After I showed my first Baba sketch to Mischa – himself an artist - our creative collaboration back and forth across the pond between London UK and Walnut Creek CA began. Baba held it in the palm of his hand! As the drawings came out I emailed them to Mischa, and he suggested necessary changes. Invariably when I applied his insight the drawing was greatly improved. Each portrait is the fruit of our discussions over the detail and expression of eyes, ears, clothing, and sacred physiognomy. The divine shape or “cuneiform” of Baba’s head and features, and Mehera’s and others, touches the soul. This had not occurred to me before.
“The result of this ongoing teamwork is to date (June 2020-November 2022) nearly 600 drawings and paintings of Baba and his Lovers and Companions. We have also combined Mischa’s music and my Baba art in a number of videos on YouTube (mischamuse, see the link above).
“The joy is to be an artist not for myself but to serve the One while working with others: the companionship in and with the Light. I believe art’s purpose is to care, to witness and nourish the divine spark within each of us ... ‘the connection’.”
