Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu® Outreach
The Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Foundation and Outreach was founded in 2001. The purpose is to expand the work of Mary Burmeister and the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu Physio-Philosophy through contributions that support medical research; educational development that creates different avenues of presentation including language translations, implementation of scholarships that base selection on merit, need, or minority status; selection of individuals to receive Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments; financial support for Jin Shin Jyutsu associations, seminars, correspondence courses and outreach programs to developing countries.
The Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Outreach offers tuition assistance for 5-Day Basic Seminars in the form of partial and full tuition grants to low income individuals. Nineteen grants, 5 full and 14 partial, were given in 2012. Grants were given to students from the following countries: Canada, Czech Republic, England, Israel, Latvia, Philippines, South Africa, and the United States. The Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Outreach is giving free educational self-help DVDs to low income individuals, practitioners who work with low income individuals and organizations that serve low income individuals. The DVD is titled Simply Help Yourself and it shows self-help exercises for minimizing side effects of conventional medical treatment, information about help in our fingers and hands, self-help exercises for general harmony and exercises that can be done with a partner. To receive a Simply Help Yourself DVD, send a written inquiry with information about yourself or your organization to the Mary Burmeister-Jin Shin Jyutsu Outreach. January 7, 2013 begins a Jin Shin Jyutsu initiative in a remote village in Egypt with sessions and Self-Help teaching provided by practitioners for the villagers. Self-Help classes are continuing with a new group of prisoners at Bayline Correctional Complex in Florida and their assigned dogs who are trained to be court dogs [to accompany children into court for neglect and abuse cases] and therapy dogs.
