Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Petra Elmendorff Nov 2017 – Nov 2018

I’ve only had a chance to go to a 5 day class with Petra so far, but I hope to to be able to attend other classes with her soon enough – she has a lot of knowledge she can share, as you can see in the words about her at the jsjinc.net page, one of the things she has done is to study with Haruki Kato for several years:


Petra graduated from the university of Bremen with a Masters in sociology.  She started with 23 her practice in Vipassana meditation and her studies of contemporary philosophical astrology and became a professional astrologer in Germany and USA.

  • She finished a training in Hypnotherapy in Santa Cruz, Ca.,
  • Certification as “naturopath” in Berlin, Germany
  • Practitioner in her own Praxis in Freiburg
  • Training in “Family Constellation Work” of Bert Hellinger by Victoria Schnabel

Since 2002 is Petra authorized JSJ instructor of the “JSJ Institute of Mary Burmeister ” in Scottsdale , Az.  She is teaching worldwide JSJ 5 day basic and expanded, special topics,and Selfhelp classes .

  • 2002 – 2013 student of Haruki Kato , Tokyo

Petra never stopped to inquire the mystery how body, mind and spirit work together. With the discovery of JSJ of Mary Burmeister , all her lives studies seem to fall into place. The Physio Philosophy of the Art united everything she was looking for:

It is the simplicity of applications for oneself and yet the depths of the understanding of the connection between spirit, mind and body that provides a powerful tool for restoring and improving harmony, happiness and health in one’s life.The deep understanding of how consciousness and body are connected.

“My whole life’s journey has been dedicated the quest of consciousnesses. the deeper studies and understanding of the mind and its influence on the body and our life’s choices”

And here you can find her classes:

Jin Shin Jyutsu 5 day class with Carlyse Smyth, 9-13 August in 2016, Rugby, Warwickshire, England



Here’s the information from the organizers Ranjana Appoo and Patricia Owen

JIN SHIN JYUTSU Physio Philosophy stems from the “beginningless beginning of the universe” a truly timeless art. It concentrates on the harmony and harmonizing the energy within the body rather than on disharmony and problems.

The art of Jin Shin Jyutsu shows us that all we need to harmonize ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually (to be in harmony with the universe) lies within ourselves. This art of NOW KNOW MYSELF is an innate part of human wisdom that simplifies the complexities of our existence into the simple ART of LIVING THE BREATH THAT IS.

The seminar teaches the awareness of the universal energy flows that maintain our total being in harmony: how to keep the energy flow in balance through the usage of our hands as “jumper cables” whose simple application can remove blockages that keep body, mind and spirit from functioning properly.

PART 1 (Tue-Thurs) The foundation, introduces the dynamic qualities of the 26 Safety Energy Locks, the Trinity Flows, the concept of depths, the Physio-philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu
PART 2 (Friday & Saturday) Introduces the 12 organ flows listening to the pulses, the Special Body flows and how they can contribute to harmonizing body, mind and spirit

brings an awareness to her teaching, sharing with students her delight in this art – the joy of life, movement, energy, and a deep desire to live the philosophy and art of JSJ. Carlyse has been a student and practitioner of JSJ for over 30 years.

New Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Waltraud Riegger-Krause 2016

I was in a 5 day class with Waltraud in England a couple of years ago, and remember I was thinking when she made the introduction to the class that it is amazing that every teacher bring their own “flavour” to the class, and it seems like what they bring is exactly what I needed to hear right that moment. Even if I have been to several 5 day classes, every new teacher I meet bring something different 🙂
And I’ve also participated in a self-help class with her, she was talking about book 1, but with the focus “stress” which was interesting, how to use that book in that way.
She has also made some Jin Shin Jyutsu flash cards, you can find them here:
and there’s also books (in German):



And here are some themes for special topics (these classes has already happened):
“The development of mindfulness for avoiding stress and burnout”
“Drawing and deepening of the Organ Function Flows”
and here are some special topics in 2016:

JSJ Living The Art seminar with Carlyse Smyth, August 2015

Carlyse Smyth
29 – 31st August 2015
Battle Memorial Hall

81 High Street, TN33 0AQ Battle, East Sussex

Mary Burmeister said that in “the awareness of the moment (the breath), one’s present state of being will become an Art of LIVING.”

The purpose of this seminar is to bring us into this awareness through a detailed exploration of Mary’s three Self-Help Books and through practicing the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help. This seminar differs from the Self-Help Class in that the meanings of Mary’s words and numbers in the books are presented at a deeper level, creating a bridge of information with Texts 1 and 2 from the 5-Day Basic Seminar. With this background, students are better prepared to study, practice and perhaps teach Self-Help. Time is allotted for discussion and refinement of communication skills on selected Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help topics.

This seminar involves exploring Jin Shin Jyutsu Self-Help in depth with Mary Burmeister’s three Self-Help Books and becoming more familiar with their contents. This class can deepen one’s understanding and daily practice of the self-help materials. A further objective is to improve our ability to share clearly, simply and safely the Physio-Philosophy and the Self-Help practice with others (family, friends, clients, groups), privately, in a presentation or Self-Help class.

Carlyse brings an awareness to her teaching, sharing with students her delight in this art – the joy of life, movement, energy, and a deep desire to live the philosophy and art of JSJ. Carlyse has been a student and practitioner of JSJ for over 30 years.

All Jin Shin Jyutsu students are encouraged to attend this class. Those who are on the USA Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner Locator website and who would like to be listed as a Self-Help Presenter need to attend a Living the Art Class at least once.

Prerequisite: Completion of the three 5-Day Basic Seminars and attendance of a self-help class. Upon completion of your third 5-Day Basic Seminar and your Living the Art Seminar, you will receive your Living the Art certificate of attendance. Please contact us if you are interested in the class and have not met the prerequisite.

The Class will be held at
Venue: Battle Memorial Halls, 81 High Street, Battle, East Sussex,TN33 0AQ
