New Jin Shin Jyutsu classes with Sadaki Kato 2018-2019

I was just checking out if there were any new JSJ classes I wasn’t aware of, and found some more classes with Sadaki Kato – unfortunately in languages where I’m not very fluent, so I can’t go… but if you speak German or French, there are new classes for you.
And I guess that the class in Brazil will be translated into Portuguese, even if it doesn’t say that on the website.

And the class in July 2018 has been posted for a while, so I knew about that already – I am planning to go, if nothing unexpected happens…
Here are all the classes that are posted, for now

JIN SHIN JYUTSU Physio-Philosophy 5 Day Seminar

Presented by: Mona Harris

Here’s the invitation letter from Claire Boelhouwers:

Dear Jin Shin Jyutsu Friends

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I invite you to our sixth 5 day basic Jin Shin Jyutsu seminar in Uppsala. Mona Harris will be our teacher again. Mona was the first Jin Shin Jyutsu faculty teacher to come to Sweden in 2012. Some of you started your journey with Mona and are still continuing! Unique to Mona’s class is that she introduces listening to pulses from the first day of class, and builds up on listening all throughout the following days. Mona’s clarity, and knowledge of Jin Shin Jyutsu is shared with calm and superbly organised presentation.

Many of you will be doing this class for the third time and will be receiving your Practitioner Level Attendance Certificate from Scottsdale when you complete the class!!

The seminar will be presented in English and covers the following:

Part 1

DAY 1-3

The foundation: Introduces the dynamic qualities of the 26 Safety Energy Locks, the Trinity Flows, the concept of Depths of energy within the body and the physio-philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu. Interspersed with the lecture are ample periods of hands-on application. Mona will begin with pulse listening from day one!

Part 2 ( prerequisite Part 1)

DAY 4 and 5

Introduces the concept and application of the Body Function Energy. We are also introduced to the Special Body Function Energy and how it contributes to harmonizing body, mind and spirit. Interspersed with the lecture are ample periods of hands-on application.

After attendance of one full seminar a certificate of completion is issued. Upon completion of a student’s third full seminar, a document of attendance is issued signifying attainment of minimum practitioner-level training.

About the instructor: Mona Harris was born and raised in southern Germany and has been studying Jin Shin Jyutsu since 1992. She has taught regular self-help classes since 1997, and begun teaching LTA (Living The Art – Jin Shin Jyutsu-seminars) in 2004. Mona has been teaching 5-day classes since 2011. She is fluent in English, German, and French and utilizes her language skills as a translator for Jin Shin Jyutsu seminars and classes. She has translated over 50 5-day classes! This unique experience offers her an incredible amount of insight and perspective which she brings into her own teachings. Mona was a special education teacher for nine years before she became a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner, translator, and teacher. Her compassion, knowledge, and wisdom of Jin Shin Jyutsu creates a dynamic learning environment for the JSJ-Seminar. Please also see Mona’s website :

Sad news about Karen Moore

I got an email with sad news from the JSJ Scottsdale Office – I’ve been in Scottsdale three times to get intensive sessions, and had the great fortune to meet Karen in Scottsdale the first time I was there, and got sessions from her. It was really nice to meet her, she will be greatly missed! Here’s the email:


Karen was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and lived there until she graduated from high school. She received a Ford Foundation scholarship to study ballet and later attended college at NYU School of the Arts in New York City. After 12 years in New York, she moved to San Francisco where she took her first Jin Shin Jyutsu class with Mary Burmeister in 1987. Karen had been working at the Scottsdale Office since May of 1993. As well as being on staff as a practitioner, she was editor of The Main Central newsletter, oversaw the production of the annual class brochure.  Karen loved being part of the Jin Shin Jyutsu family and only recently retired.
We remember her as an efficient and tireless colleague, who was a highly regarded JSJ practitioner. For some years she continued her love of dancing (often displaying her flamenco skills), and enjoyed caring for her dogs.  We thank her for all she gave to the Jin Shin Jyutsu Organization through 24 years.  She is greatly missed and we offer our sympathy to her family, friends and coworkers.
In Love and remembrance,
David, Michael and Martha, Jody, Terry, Josh, Rachel, Ian, Marty, and Zoe the doggie

Study group 28-29 October, 2017

With Mona Harris

In Uppsala, Sweden

Dear Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioners, students and friends,

It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I invite you to a study group with one of the very experienced faculty members of Jin Shin Jyutsu Inc., Mona Harris.

Mona was the first teacher to bring Jin Shin Jyutsu to Uppsala, Sweden in 2013. First she presented a 3 day self help class based on Mary Burmeister’s Book 1, followed by a

5 day Jin Shin Jyutsu seminar 6 months later. Mona later led a 3 day study group for all students. In her study group we had time for questions and time also for new insights to unfold. The journey continues.

The study group provides a space for us to deepen our awareness, understanding, and practice of the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.  We will have ample time for hands on application, both as self-help and on each other. We learn through receiving and giving.

You are encouraged to write to Mona with your specific topic of interest, and or any questions you may have regarding Jin Shin Jyutsu philosophy and practice.

AN EXTRA OFFERING : on Friday 27th October, the day before class Mona will offer Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions. Book soon as there is limited time.

Warm welcome !

Claire Boelhouwers

Please email me as soon as you decide you want to participate. Feel free to ask for more information as needed. You can read more about Mona at

Kristin Ellingsen – nycertifierad JSJ behandlare, Spånga/Stockholm

Kristin Ellingsen är en nycertifierad Jin Shin Jyutsu behandlare i Stockholmsområdet (Spånga) – här är info om henne:

Jag heter Kristin Ellingsen och jag är certifierad Jin Shin Jyutsu behandlare. Jag har alltid försökt hjälpa människor när jag har sett att de behöver det. Det knådas i nacken, då är jag där på en gång och masserar.

I 2014 gick jag Friskvårdsmassagekurs på Axelssons. Jag tyckte om att massera, men ville hjälpa mer. 
I mars 2015 hittade jag Jin Shin Jyutsu, blev alldeles lyrisk och gjorde min första kurs april 2015 i Uppsala. Instruktör Natalie Max.
I februari 2016 gjorde jag min andra kurs i Strasbourg i Frankrike med instruktör Jed Schwartz.
Efter min tredje kurs i Amsterdam i Nederländerna i augusti 2016 (instruktör Susan Schwartz) blev jag certifierad. 

Jag är tacksam över att Anita Westö (som har 12 års erfarenhet med Jin Shin Jyutsu) tog mig under sina vingar. Vi har bytt behandling sedan april 2016. Sedan augusti 2016 har även Helene Iliste (som har 25 års erfarenhet) förbarmat sig över mig. Det är guld att ha såna erfarna och mänskliga mentorer.

Mitt företag, mysliv Sverige, har nu knutit an till

Back in Sweden again, after some traveling..

I have been traveling for a while now, started in Ireland in the end of June, where I participated in Sadaki Kato’s class – I recommend that class highly, if you have a chance you should go 🙂

Then I have been in the US for a month, I’ve started in Las Vegas for a couple of days, we were going to Grand Canyon, the north rim, so Las Vegas was a good starting point.













And then I went to Los Angeles, I’ve been there a couple of times before, among other things I have been in a class there with Wayne Hackett, and another class with Sadaki Kato.
There’s this statue close to the beach, at Venice Beach (or close to Marina del Rey) now I managed to take some photos – don’t know which mudra it is, though…







And then I went to Scottsdale, to get nice sessions from Terry Matthews and Ian Harris, it’s always very good, I can recommend that highly too 🙂
This is the view I had from my hotel room, this time:







And the last stop on my trip before going back to Sweden again was New York, one of my goals was to find the Strawberry Field in Central Park – I tried to find it last year, without success, since it is not very well marked, but this year I really made an effort – it helps to ask people who work in the park 🙂
And I started from the Dakota building at W 72nd street (where John Lennon lived, and was shot), then it was much easier to find it..
