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.

🆕 A Life Well Lived - The Art of Aging - Saturday, December 4th @ 2PM EST

Two hour webinar presented in English by Jill Pasquinelli

There are many gifts in aging, it's a continuation of everything that has come before. We continue to develop, grow, and change during our entire time of existence.

We live in the biochemistry of our bodies, not in years. The mind-body connection shows the ability of the brain to influence it's own aging.

Some factors that influence aging have to do with:

  • Maintaining our reserves
  • Lifestyle
  • Stress
  • Attitudes
  • Mind-Body Connection
  • Genetic constitution
  • Exercise
  • Wisdom

We'll discover and explore through the lens of Jin Shin Jyutsu how we can take care of ourselves, be attuned to new patterns as we age to maintain, enhance, and maximize our health, balance, and sense of well being throughout our lives.

🆕 Living the Art - Begins December 2, 2021

Online Class presented in English with Mona Harris

Mary Burmeister states that in "the awareness of the moment (the breath), one's present state of being will become an Art of LIVING." The Living The Art seminar continues from the 5-day class, focusing the 5-day class information back into the Self-Help Books. This class brings forth and lights the way to understanding the connections, relationships and interfaces between the Self-Help Books. With this background, students are better prepared to study, practice and perhaps teach Self-Help.
