The class is offered in eight weekly meetings. Each meeting lasts 2 hours. Each week, we’ll study one of the seven laws and experience Jin Shin Jyutsu flows that incorporate it.
The list of topics is subject to change. If you are interested in a particular topic, let me know in advance and, if possible, I’ll incorporate it into the class.
1. Mind over Matter
The disharmonies of the body invariably stem from our deep and most often unconscious mindsets. We’ll explore what Jin Shin Jyutsu says about such mental attitudes and how they manifest on the material level. We’ll experience Self-Help flows that come close to helping us open our minds to new ways and views.
2. As Above, so Below
How is it possible to hold your toes and yet be helping your brain? We’ll explore the principle of correspondence and how it applies efficiently to various disharmonies.
3. The Law of Resonance
Mary Burmeister would warn her students that if a person came to them who need their Spleen Function Energy harmonized, and the next person needed Spleen Function Energy Harmonized, and the third person needed yet the same Spleen Function harmonized, that they should give themselves Spleen Function adjustment sequence. There is a law in the Universe that brings together entities that have identical features. In physics, this is called resonance. We’ll look at how this resonance principle can help us find the best flow at any given instance.
4. Polarity and the Middle Way
The Middle Way has been taught for millennia both in the East and in the West. As a well educated Japanese man, Jiro Murai certainly knew of this law and incorporated it into the principles of Jin Shin Jyutsu. We don’t take or give, we don’t force energy to go. Instead, we invite the flows to give to what is lacking and to remove what is too much. In doing so, we aim for the middle. We’ll explore why there are no “wrong” flows in Jin Shin Jyutsu and what happens if you accidentally place your hands not where you initially intended or as prescribed in your “textbooks”.
Things come and go and what is appropriate today might not be appropriate tomorrow. We’ll explore how following the natural rhythms can help with daily situations: dealing with Jet Lag, waking up at a certain time of the day, why it is better not to eat after 6 pm at night, etc.
6. The Principle of Cause and Effect
Every effect has its cause. But more importantly, the effect is never where the cause is. The reason for that is beyond the realm of Jin Shin Jyutsu, this fact is well incorporated in the Jin Shin Jyutsu adjustment sequences. If the pain is
Ying and Yang, night and day, left and right: we live in a world of duality. We’ll explore the duality in Jin Shin Jyutsu: the Left and Right Supervisors, the exhale and inhale, the masculine and feminine energy, and many other duality concepts.
8. Per Request
We’ll finish the class with topics requested by the participants.
