Wayne Hackett’s class in Belgium April 2014

I just got back to Sweden from a lovely 3 day class with Wayne Hackett – if you have a chance to participate in Wayne’s class I highly recommend it! The first day was about cause and effect, (how to combine the Jin Shin Jyutsu books Text 1 and Text 2 in a deeper way, to get a deeper understanding), and the second and third day the subject for the class was “The breath that I am”, among other things we were looking deeper into the breathing flow, #3 flow, umbilicus and diaphragm energy function flows – very interesting!

Here’s a link to Wayne’s other classes:

And here are some photos from the class, in Mariagaarde, near Genk in Belgium:

In Brussels now

I came to Brussels two days ago, lovely weather, lovely town, and today I’m on my way to Sint Truiden, where the class with Wayne Hackett will start tomorrow. I’m looking forward to the class, I’m sure it will be very interesting, and the surrondings look very nice too, according to the website for the accomodation!

i will be back with more information and photos in a couple of days!

I try to check out the jsjinc.net website now and then, to see if there are some classes I can go to, and now I found a Now Know Myself class with Chus Arias – I have tried to find a NKM class for quite a long time that will fit in to my schedule, I hope I will be able to get to this class!! ****Update about the class – I met Carlyse, Mathias and Chus in Paris at the organizers meeting last June – Chus and Carlyse will speak English, they will be translated to German, Mathias will only speak German, no translation to English. So if you are thinking about going to the class, you need to understand German..

Jin Shin Jyutsu video, Safety energy lock #8, with Graeme Dinnen

A video with Graeme Dinnen, about safety energy lock #8, the Magician:

Here’s Graeme DInnen’s website:

Some words on youtube about the video, and SEL #8:
Filmed on a windy day at les alignments near Carnac, Brittany SEL # 8 is located at the back of the knee.

Known as the Magician (as well as The Cosmic Allness and Splendour) the # 8 helps:

● release pelvic stress
● alleviate the discomforts of assimilation and elimination
● rectal conditions
● blood disharmonies
● free the hips
● bring peace and stability

If the # 8 is locked we stagnate, we cannot receive or motivate ourselves as no energy is flowing through the pelvic girdle.

The #8 reminds us that the lowest form of spirit is matter and the highest form of matter is spirit……and we need never know fear.

The many sacred teachings of mankind throughout different cultures have one commonality: “As above, so below” The #8 is two perfect circles, one on top of the other; similarly the 8th letter of the alphabet is an ‘H’ which is the same above as below.

How cooking can change your life, a video by Michael Pollan


Everything and everyone that can help us to be healthier is good – food is so important for our health, so I will share what I find,  every time when I find something like this!
Among other things he is talking about french fries from McDonalds, horrific facts about Burbank potatoes – I’m never going to eat french fries at McDonalds again! And that was the only thing I was thinking I could eat there, I haven’t set my foot in a McDonalds in many years… I’m glad I cook my own food, most of the time…

Some words on youtube about this video:
Renowned activist and author Michael Pollan argues that cooking is one of the simplest and most important steps people can take to improve their family’s health, build communities, fix our broken food system, and break our growing dependence on corporations. The event was chaired by Tim Lang, professor of Food Policy at City University London.

Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help Workshop „To Create Body Mind Awareness, Prevent Stress, Fatigue and Burn Out“ 31 May-1 June, Copenhagen

About the workshop

A weekend of relaxation and regeneration.

During the two days we will learn and understand the mechanisms in our lifestyle that lead to stress and burn out.

We will practice self help sequences and body mind meditations to bring back inner calm and peace.

We’ll also learn daily routines to harmonize our life energy and promote spiritual, mental and physical regeneration, which can be repeated daily in a regular way.

How can we enhance our creativity and „be the inner fountain of youth“?

About Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu® is an ancient art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. It
brings balance to the body’s energies, promoting optimal health and well-being, and facilitating our own profound healing capacity.

Jin Shin Jyutsu employs twenty-six “safety energy locks” along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. When one or more of the paths becomes blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and eventually disharmonize the complete path of energy flow.

Holding these energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body, and spirit.

Jin Shin Jyutsu does not involve massage, manipulation of muscles, or use of drugs or substances. It is a gentle Art, practiced by placing the fingertips (over clothing) on designated safety energy locks, to harmonize and restore the energy flow.

About Waltraud Riegger Krause

Waltraud Riegger-Krause was born in the Black Forest in Germany. After studying Social Work and working for an environmental protection project, Waltraud went on an extended journey through the U.S. in 1985. There she took her first class with Mary Burmeister, where she felt the impact of Mary’s words: “The journey lies within Myself to seek that which has no beginning and no ending.” Waltraud was touched by Mary’s teaching and her way of being. In the same year she also met her spiritual teacher, who taught her the Natural Path of Raja Yoga Meditation, which she is practicing till today. After remaining in the U.S. and studying with Mary till 1989, Waltraud returned to Germany to start her JSJ practice. Since 1995, Waltraud has been an instructor for the 5 day, Special Topic, Now Know Myself and other Special Classes. She is also author of the book: “Jin ShinJyutsu, Die Kunst der Selbstheilung durch Auflegen der Hände”, which was published at Irisiana Verlag in Germany in April 2005. Waltraud’s classes are reflecting her deep love for Jin Shin Jyutsu and her 29 years of meditation practice.

Jin Shin Jyutsu 5 day class with Ian Harris in Uppsala, Sweden 14-18 May

I am looking forward to the class with Ian Harris, he is a musician, and since I am a musician too I have tried several times to participate in his special topic classes Music and Jin Shin Jyutsu, but has never been able to fit it in to my schedule, and now it was a long time since he had a special topic like that – so I hope that we will be able to talk a little bit about the relation music and Jin Shin Jyutsu in this 5 day class! If there are any other musicians out there – try to come to this class in Uppsala!

And here’s a link with more information about the class:

Kato Sensei has passed

From David Burmeister:

Dear Friends,
I’m sorry to inform you that Kato Sensei passed away last night during his sleep. Kyoko received an email from Sadaki tonight saying that he had seen Kato-san the day before yesterday and he looked fine. Then he spoke with him again yesterday and he seemed just fine. Then by chance Kato-san’s girlfriend of many years, Akemei, visited him this morning and found him still in his bed, looking very peaceful. Sadaki said that he was happy he was not the one to discover his father and that he was glad his father seemed to have passed peacefully in his sleep.

Sadaki also suggested that we hold a memorial service for Kato-san when he is in Scottsdale in May, which we will be honored to do. I am very grateful for all the kindness and generosity of spirit Kato Sensei has shown to me and to the many others who were privileged to know him and to study with him.

With love, David

And some more words from Karin Schurian Rosenø:
For those who do not know who Kato was… He was together with Mary one of the two elected students of Master Jiro Murai, whom he asked to spread the word about JSJ. Mary did it in the US and Kato in Japan. I have never met him but I heard very interesting story about this little powerful teacher! May we honor him, Mary and Jiro while we use the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
