Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Sara Harper, Oct 2017 – Nov 2019

Sara Harper is one of the instructors I haven’t had the good fortune to meet yet, or take a class with, it’s on my list 🙂 reading about her at the jsjinc.net page is interesting – since she got sessions from Mary already at 14 years of age. Here are the words about her from the jsjsinc.net page:


Sara lives in Tucson, AZ with her family. Sara received her first session with Mary when she was fourteen in 1973. She has studied with Mary since 1983. Sara has been a Jin Shin Jyutsu instructor since 1992 teaching the “Living the Art” 3-day workshops, and Self-Help.  Sara also teaches the Basic Five Day seminar, Mentoring, Special Topics, and Now Know Myself.

Sara has a Bachelor of Science in Business and Marketing and worked in Business for several years.  After a traumatic car accident in the early 1980’s she had a life changing experience during her sessions with Mary Burmeister.

Sara has studied psychology, numerology, dance and loves the mysteries of life and nature. Sara teaches in an experiential and elemental way as to embody the journey of learning.

And here you can find her classes (for 2019 there’s only the Now Know Myself class, so far, but those classes are scheduled far in advance, so there will be more classes with her during 2019, I’m sure):

Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Anita Willoughby, Oct 2017 – Oct 2018

I have been in a class about body reading and pulse listening with Anita some years ago, in Germany, and have met her a couple of times during the years, have been getting a session with her in New York City, where she lives (great apartment 🙂 ) and she was also in Uppsala, Sweden for a 5 day class in May earlier this year – I wasn’t able to participate at the time, more than a few hours, but she was getting really good reviews from the students at that class 🙂

Here’s her impersonation of Wonder Woman at that class – showing us (with the help of fancy gloves and socks) how the direction of the energy flows in the body.
Here are the words about her from the jsjinc.net website:


Anita Willoughby is a physio-philosopher who has practiced Jin Shin Jytusu for 30 years. While her family and clients are based in New York City, Anita’s ability to quickly create a relaxed learning environment in any cultural context makes her a highly sought-out teacher around the globe. Her wisdom regarding the trinity of body, mind, and spirit arises out of a lifetime of experiential, professional, and spiritual learning. Her experiences as a dancer, mother, and healer, as well as her study of the Kabbalah, provide her with a rich garden of knowledge from which she spontaneously plucks insights when adapting to the particular needs of a group of students.

Compassionate, yet frank, Anita uses her exuberant physicality and sense of humor to teach students the practical application of JSJ in daily life.   Anita instills students with an expansive perspective on JSJ, presenting it not as magic bullet for fixing what’s ‘wrong’, but as an adaptive, fluid way to approach and engage the trinity of body, mind, and spirit, throughout our ever-changing lives.

Anita initially began her teaching relationship with Jin Shin Jyutsu by teaching self-help classes in NYC and working in hospital settings with people with critical labels.  Some of these venues included SHARE  (self-help for women and men with breast and ovarian cancer), Cancer Care Centers at both St. Luke’s/Roosevelt Hospital and Beth Israel Hospital, the Departments of Rheumatology at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Hospital for Joint Diseases, and the Fibromyalgia Connection at Hospital for Joint Diseases.

This is a Jin Shin Jyutsu 5 Day Basic Seminar which is created to present an introduction and continually expanding experience of the theory and practice of the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu to both beginning as well as returning students.

The Jin shin Jyutsu 5-Day 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. These classes are created as both an introduction and continuance of both the theory and practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu for beginning students as well as returning students in that we may share from each other’s experience.

Each 5 day seminar consists of two parts: 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. Interspersed with lecture are ample periods of hands-on application.

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 and spirit.

As your class Organizers we are here to facilitate and support the class and your experience of it. If you have any questions about Jin Shin Jyutsu, this class, or Sedona please contact us at jsjsedona@gmail.com, or call 928-300-5832.

New Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Carlos Gutterres 2016

I haven’t been to any of Carlos classes yet, but one of my Jin Shin Jyutsu friends here in Sweden was at a class with him in Portugal a while ago, she said it was a really nice experience, so I really want to go… 🙂 Hopefully I will be able to go to his Now Know Myself class in May in Louisville, Kentucky, but it would be nice to go to Portugal too…

Here are some words about him, from the jsjinc.net website:

“Carlos Gutterres is a Jin Shin Jyutsu 5-day class and Now Know Myself instructor.He is from Brazil and was born in Porto Alegre. Since he was very young he has had a deep interest in the mysteries of nature and the human being, and throughout his life he has pursued the study of philosophy, psychology, numerology, astrology, and Kabbalah. He has been associated with several philanthropic and spiritual organizations, including one that he founded.

After working in industry for two decades, he felt he needed a channel to express everything he had been studying. He found this channel in the healing arts, first learning flower essence therapy and becoming a researcher and practitioner, then Reiki, and finally Jin Shin Jyutsu. He developed a flower essences system called Vida. He is the author of many articles and the book, A New Purpose of Vibrational Healing. As a student and practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu in Brazil, he has been committed to sharing awareness of the Art through articles, talks, interviews, self help classes and study groups throughout the country.

Carlos lives on a ranch near Porto Alegre with his wife, Vivian, where he enjoys contact with nature, and in this peaceful place continues his studies.He has three children from his first marriage: Daniel, Leonardo, and Vivian.”

And here are special topic classes that already has happened:
“Connecting Eastern & Western Astrology with Jin Shin Jyutsu”
Notes: Students will receive their personal astrological chart. Each student should plan on submitting their birth information when registering for the class. Date, place & time of birth.
“Journey Through the SEL (Combination of Philosophy and Practice)”

New Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Chus Arias

I haven’t had a chance to participate in a class with Chus Arias yet, I was trying to get on my way to Singapore last summer, where she taught several classes, but the class was full already a couple of months before it was happening, so I couldn’t go… But I have met her a couple of times at the Jin Shin Jyutsu organizers meeting, she is a very nice person, so I’m looking forward to spend some time with her in a class, when I can fit it in into my schedule. And as I understand it she is also a doctor, it could be good to hear Jin Shin Jyutsu been taught from a doctor’s perspective.

She teaches a lot of 5 day classes, but here are other themes for classes that she teaches as well:
(these has already happened)
Special Topic Class (in English) “Critical Labels”
Special Topic Class (in English) “Body Reading & Pulse Listening”
Living the Art (in Spanish)

Video: Mexico’s sugar clinics help patients gain control over diabetes

I’m not sure that the snacks they are selling at those clinics are really healthy to eat, but it’s a step in the right direction anyway…

The text from Youtube about the video:

Publicerades den 9 nov. 2015

In Mexico, over 70 percent of citizens are overweight or obese and 14 percent of Mexican adults now suffer from diabetes, though half of those affected aren’t even aware they have the disease. Special correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro reports on the struggle to bring the disease under control.

Visitors from all over the world!

It is very interesting – I’ve realized that I have a lot of visitors from other countries than Sweden – I will continue to write in Swedish at the static pages at this website, but add some English blogs now and then. I guess my visitors from other countries can use translate.google.com to understand the content of my Swedish posts. And there are a lot of other websites about Jin Shin Jyutsu in English, but not as many in Swedish…

My intention with this website is to spread the word about Jin Shin Jyutsu, mainly in Sweden (but also other countries),  about the workshops and classes that are available, and that this art is so suitable for self-help, to help people to help themselves. There are links to descriptions of books you can buy here, contact information to Jin Shin Jyutsu instructors and institutes, but also contact information to people that want to exchange treatments with one another, so we don’t have to rely on therapists all the time (and pay a lot of money) – we can help ourselves, and help each other as well, to share our knowledge.
I intend to post about food and nutrition as well and other things that can have a somewhat not wanted impact on the body,  this is (kind of) a quote from Mary Burmeister :
“Remove the dirty dust and the greasy grime daily”
If we add on to the dirty dust and the greasy grime through our eating habits and other impacts, it could be difficult to clear out that in the same pace..

And I just wanted to say hello to my visitors from Denmark, Norway, Finland, Åland Islands, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Lichtenstein, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, Spain, Andorra, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Romania, Turkey, Russian Federation, Ukraine, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica, Brazil, Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Suriname, French Guiana, Thailand, India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Cambodia, Viet Nam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Macao, Korea, Japan, Philippines, Australia,  New Zealand, Israel, Libya, Oman, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Morocco, Senegal, Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Tanzania and South Africa – I’m really happy that you found this website, and I hope you will have many nice Jin Shin Jyutsu days ahead of you. Drop your shoulders and smile, and don’t forget to breathe, as Mary Burmeister said!
