Art of the Creator through man of knowing & compassion

Welcome to Jin Shin Jyutsu

Art of the Creator through man of knowing and compassion

Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-philosophy is an art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. Born of innate wisdom and passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth, the Art had fallen into relative obscurity when it was dramatically revived in the early 1900's by Master Jiro Murai in Japan.

After clearing himself of a life-threatening illness, Master Murai devoted the rest of his life to the research and development of Jin Shin Jyutsu, gathering insight from a range of experiences and resources, including the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Things). The resulting knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu was then given to Mary Burmeister, who brought it to the United States in the 1950's.

Mary Burmeister began teaching the Art to others in the early 1960's, and today there are thousands of students throughout the United States and around the world.

🆕 9 Months in Utero: The Process of Creation through the Lens of Jin Shin Jyutsu - Begins Friday, August 13th

Online Class presented in English with Anita Willoughby

Prerequisite: One 5 Day Basic Seminar

Nine Months of Creation and the Basic Rhythmic Pulse of Life

In the beginning, we were an ovum the size of the dot on a lowercase i. So how did we evolve from this microscopic dot to become a perfect 7-9 pound baby? A story of the nine months in the womb and how alchemy transforms us from this speck of possibility into matter.

Who are we? What is our beginning? How do we grow? Until we understand our origin, foundation, and genetic inheritance, we cannot understand our unique individuality. So please join this Jin Shin Jyutsu Special Topic Class for a journey through the raw material of life, a journey into self-discovery.

Class Dates and Times: *All times are in EST (New York time)

  • Friday, August 13th to Sunday, August 15th, 2021
