Welcome to our Business

Renascent College is dedicated to awakening and nourishing the soul in classes, clinic, services &  products.

A symbol of beauty arising from the mudRenascent College is a family run business that was founded in 1991 by Lesley Mitchell (nee Antonoff). Lesley was later one of the directors of The Australian College of Feng Shui & Geomancy, worked with many other organisations and well known people around the world, authored 9 books and travelled extensively around the world teaching and studying. We began teaching personal development and healing classes and a natural health clinic. Shortly after this, we discovered a need to find good quality products for our own use both in the clinic, classes and in Feng Shui consultations. From this the college students and our practitioners requested that they too could purchase these products for use in their own work, hence a retail aspect to our business was began. Shortly after this, certain shopkeepers requested that they may be able to purchase our products for resale in their shops and clinics, hence a wholesale aspect was begun. It was only a short matter of time before this took off and became a major part of our lives and currently we supply many businesses in Australia and overseas.

The International College of Intuitive Sciences was founded by Daryll Mitchell after realising that the demand for Feng Shui practitioners and natural therapists was too large for him to manage on his own. From a need to provide good quality practitioners, the college was begun as well as education for those with an interest in these areas. Daryll has over 22 years background in Ch’i (energy) development, martial arts and music. The college has a strong emphasis on integrity and spiritual foundations in all work. We are proud to work with a number of Ch’i and Feng Shui masters and practitioners in Australia, China, Nepal, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, England, USA and Indonesia. Many of our wholesale and retail customers have become workshop sponsors and held very successful seminars and classes in their own areas. (Further information sheets are available if you are interested in running a seminar or series with the college).

Premises: We have just moved to a new location in Warrandyte, where we have a beautiful, professional & nurturing seminar room,product display, clinic & offices next door to our home. You are free to sit in specially tuned healing energy sites, have a free cup of fresh coffee or tea or (weather permitting) relax in the beautiful garden with the kookaburras.

What we Offer:  We offer classes in many spiritual and healing topics from Workshop style spiritual development circle through to professional diplomas as health practitioners and teachers. Overseas Journeys at very reasonable prices designed for personal transformation, enjoyment and gaining professional qualifications. (We recently trained 34 Reiki & Tien Ti masters on a very successful journey through Thailand and Nepal and 17 Qi Gong Practitioners in China). We are currently organising a very special spiritual journey to BOURNEO/MALAYSIA- the participants will be nurtured, stay in amazing surroundings, sightsee, have practical teachings, receive massage & health consultations and come back transformed in many ways.

We offer a natural health clinic dealing with clients from serious health concerns to simple revitalisation & upliftment. We utilise many healing modalities including Kinesiology to enable us to provide the highest, most rapid form of healing for each individual. A personal consultation promotes a lightness of heart as well as healing for the body, mind and soul. A recent client remarked "Without knowing it, I have needed that session for the last 30 years - I’ll be back regularly".

Full newsletters available listing all events and opening hours.

Lifestyle:  Although both aspects of Renascent and The International College of Intuitive Sciences have become very successful businesses, they are more than that to us, they are our life in so many ways. We not only teach and sell these services and products, but we live the principles and incorporate them into our everyday life in every aspect. We travel extensively and spend as much time on other continents as we do in Australia, however when we are in Australia as well as working often long & varied hours, we work developing a small aspect of permaculture and self sufficiency in our own garden & home and spend as much time as possible in Ch’i development practices, recording music in our (home) studio and playing, educating and communicating with (our little boy) Gabriel. In 2001 we made the move to a lovely village (where Lesley grew up) 20-30 minutes out of Melbourne city in Warrandyte, we finally have some privacy, land and as far as we can see (almost) is our own property. We are currently delighting in being able to look up at a country night sky, with stars not illuminated from city lights. We delighted in meeting a large koala bear friend the other day and are so far not minding sharing our crops with the rabbits.

Although we have the centre, we are not housed in a large corporate office, rather we have the head offices, stock room, recording studio, seminar room, clinic and the manufacturing area based on our own property.

We do not have an extravagant lifestyle, we are currently experiencing a simple down to earth life, with much of our healing and classes by donation. Whilst we need to pay our bills (like everyone) and have some extra income, we choose to charge for some classes and clinic sessions so we are able to dedicate ourselves and our time 100% to being the best teachers and healers we can. Naturally the bills must be paid some where and by charging for some services we can follow this path (and be of the best benefit to you) fully. However, rather than a financial decision we made a decision to follow our hearts and the journey we are led on.

What we can offer to you: The products and services we supply are those which make a change in the consciousness in some way. They are those we use in our own lives that we know work. We do not supply trinkets or decorations, only items which hold spiritual, uplifting or healing benefits.

As Renascent is backed by The International College of Intuitive Sciences and The International College of Gem Essences we are able to guarantee that all the Feng Shui, Ch’i Energy and Gem Essence products we supply are accurate, potentised and effective. We offer back up support and make ourselves available to you for any questions that may arise from yourself or your clients and are happy to spend time over the phone to provide clarity and understanding in many topics for yourself &/or your staff in the use of our products. We also offer free introductory evenings with the Centre and evening seminars that begin from as little as $10.

As a result of this and our personal quests and journeys we are pleased to have developed wonderful friendships with many of our students and customers over the years from around the globe.

Clinic:  In the clinic we offer many varied techniques for healing, health and vitality including Kinesiology, Qi Gong, Herbalism, Reiki, Spiritual Healing, Acupressure, Vibrational Medicine, Colour Therapy, Crystal Healing, Stellar Essences, Gem Essences, Flower Essences, Vitamin & supplement support along with some less known techniques.

Classes:  In the classes we offer a range of topics including: Feng Shui, Geomancy, Reiki, Kinesiology, Qi Gong, Meditation, Spiritual Development, Natural Healing, Energy techniques, Touch For Health, Gemmology, Crystal Light Balancing, Crystal Workshop, Gem Essences, Stellar Essences, Sound Healing, Tien Ti Space Clearing and many more varied topics including overseas journeys of transformation.

What we can not offer you: As our business is varied, we can not guarantee you 24 hour service 7 days a week. We can not always guarantee to answer all calls immediately (even in business hours). Very often we are teaching seminars (in Australia and Overseas), employed in Feng Shui consultations for homes and businesses, working with clients in the clinic or answering an urgent request from a delightful little soul that is now sharing his life with us.

However, during these times we do have answer services or voice mail   and we will happily return your call as soon as possible and guarantee you personal attention and service to your request or inquiry. Orders or enquiries may be emailed or faxed through 24 hours a day. Our email is Email Us Here.
