Dear Jin Shin Jyutsu Community,

We are excited to invite you to join us for a five-day seminar taught by Iole Lebensztajn at a brand new location nestled in the rolling hills of Frederick County Maryland.  The seminar will be held April 5 (Wed.) – April 9 (Sun.), 2017, at the Claggett Retreat and Conference Center located at 3035 Buckeystown Pike, Adamstown, MD 21710.

About the Instructor

Iole Lebensztajn was born in São Paulo, Brazil. She finished medical school at the University of São Paulo in 1988 and completed her residency in Pediatrics in 1990. At the end of 1990 Iole was touched by the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu. For her, Jin Shin Jyutsu integrates knowledge, concepts, and hands-on practices from different traditions and cultures in a very inclusive and unique approach.

Iole became an instructor of Jin Shin Jyutsu in 1999. She has a full Jin Shin Jyutsu practice in São Paulo, seeing clients, teaching self-help classes and teaching seminars for the Mary Burmeister Institute in Brazil and worldwide. Iole is Curriculum Coordinator of the Professional Practitioner Course and is the lead author of its new core curriculum. She lives in the São Paulo area with her young son.
