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 Jyutsuยฎ 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.

๐Ÿ†• 5 Day Self Help - Begins January 19th, 2022

Online Class presented in English with Sara Harper & Kelly Mount

We highly recommend that all Jin Shin Jyutsu students attend at least one Self-Help class. During this class, we study fundamental principles of Physio-Philosophy and how to apply the Art to ourselves and those in our lives. We believe a Self-Help class should be facilitated only by students who have at least a basic understanding of the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. We have found that students who have completed the 5-Day Basic Seminar at least 3 times along with the Living the Art Seminar at least once generally have the basic understanding necessary to facilitate Self-Help classes using Mary Burmeisterโ€™s three Self-Help books. This said, it is not required to attend the LTA to teach self-help classes. However, by attending the LTA allows you to list this qualification on the JSJ practitioner locator, or in any other JSJ Inc publication.

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

  • Wednesday, January 19th โ€“ Sunday, January 23rd
  • 9AM โ€“ 11AM EST / 1 hour break / 12PM โ€“ 2PM / 1 hour break / 3PM โ€“ 5PM
  • Includes 3 months of online replay access

Online Class presented in English by Sara Harper

What is a 5-Day Basic Seminar?

The Basic Seminar is for those who want to study and practice Jin Shin Jyutsu and to apply the Art on themselves and others, being the testimony of this simple, profound Art of Living, made known to us by Mary Burmeister and Jiro Murai.

Part 1: The foundation introduces the dynamic qualities of the 26 Safety Energy Locks, the Trinity Flows, the concepts of Depths within the body, and the Physio-Philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Part 2: (prerequisite: Part 1) introduces the 12 organ flows, listening to pulses, the Special Body Flows and how these contribute to harmonizing body, mind, spirit.

๐Ÿ†• Reversing and Increasing of the Depths and Beyond... - Begins February 5, 2022

Online Special Topic Class presented in English by Waltraud Riegger-Krause

Waltraud said - "Mary never really explained why these flows are named โ€œReversing and Increasing of the Depths. There are other aspects of these flows that are still a bit mysterious to many of us."

Here are just a few of the questions Waltraud will discuss: What is the connection to page 12? What do the different lines signify? How do they relate to the supervisor and mediator? Why are Right flows illustrated?

Waltraud explores the bigger picture in which these flows are embedded โ€“ focusing on โ€œmanโ€™s harmonized life storyโ€ and beyond. She is excited to share her understanding from both a theoretical and practical perspective.

Waltraud Riegger-Krause met Mary Burmeister in 1985 and was so touched by Maryโ€™s presence (Being) that she studied with her for 5 years. Her love of JSJ also brought her to Japan to study with H. Kato. Waltraud has been on the JSJ faculty since 1995. Her classes reflect her deep love of Jin Shin Jyutsu and her meditation practice โ€“ each for 36 years. Waltraud has authored 2 Jin Shin Jyutsu publications โ€“ a book In German (2005) and a card set in English (2014) โ€“ all to rave reviews.

She is licensed in Naturopathy and Traditional Oriental Medicine in Germany, and practices Raja Yoga Meditation.

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

  • Saturday, February 5 โ€“ Sunday, February 6, 2022
  • 10AM โ€“ 11:30AM EST / 30 minute break / 12PM โ€“ 2PM
