2018 Winter Newsletter

Dear friends,
Welcome to the Winter 2018 newsletter.
There is a peaceful humility about winter, as we consciously and unconsciously slow down and retreat in alignment with the rhythm of nature. In this 4th Depth season we are connected to the power that brings us in touch with our inner wisdom and our intuition and in this BE-ing, seeds are sown for the coming cycles of growth and abundance. In warm response, Jin Shin Jyutsu New Zealand is quietly regenerating and, through this quarterly newsletter, offers you many blessings of the season.

Congratulations! 5-Day Seminar with Petra Elmendorff
After many years enjoying classes in Auckland, new North Island organisers, Jeannette McCallum and Carlene Dillimore hosted Petra Elmendorff from Germany at Waihi Beach Academy, Coromandel… 2 hours drive from the city. The last time Petra was in New Zealand to present a 5-Day class was 2003 so it was marvellous to have her return to our shores again! Jeannette says “Students were enthralled with Petra’s teachings. She made Jin Shin Jyutsu come alive with her life stories and took my understanding of Jin Shin Jyutsu to a new level in the body readings. Petra taught us how to recognise disharmony in the body energy flows and how to effectively get it moving to harmonise the flow”. She continues… “It was lovely to see the change in stress levels from when people arrived to when they left; students enjoying each other’s company and getting to know each other too, over the six day event. One of the students, a chocolate maker from Martinborough, even brought lots of wonderful chocolate for us to sample”! It was wonderful that the NZ Office was able to provide bookstore items and process orders for this class. Congratulations to all involved!

Mary’s 100th Birthday celebrations… – Coming Together in Jin Shin Jyutsu

This year there are many events around the globe to celebrate the 100th birthday of Mary Burmeister and although many didn’t have the privilege of meeting Mary, we can come closer to her through connecting and sharing. In Scottsdale, Arizona, JSJ inc. held a very special gathering at the Organisers meeting last month with faculty, instructors, office staff and organisers honouring the blessing of Jin Shin Jyutsu in our lives, thanks to Mary.
The New Zealand gathering will take place in Auckland on Sunday 28th October 2018 at The Mercy Spirituality Centre, Epsom, Auckland with a FREE Special Topic workshop…”Finding the Light in times of Cosmic Change” gifted by instructor, Jennifer Holmes. There will be an open forum for sharing stories followed by group shared lunch. The afternoon session will begin at 1.30pm with hands-on.
We have rich relationship with Jin Shin Jyutsu in New Zealand which goes back over 20 years and each of us carries this precious Universal gift to share so we trust you will take this opportunity to come together on this special day to honour Mary Burmeister and the Jin Shin Jyutsu lineage.
Please R.S.V.P event organiser Elizabeth Meadows elizabeth@nousoma.co.nz All welcome 🙂

November

Living the Art seminar
Date: 12th November (Monday) – 14th November 2018 (Wednesday)
Instructor: Sara Harper, Arizona, USA
Location: Te Ngakau Waiora Mercy Spirituality Centre, 104 The Drive, Epsom, Auckland
Jin Shin Jyutsu “Spirituality in Living the Art ” is a Seminar to deepen our Awareness. Mary Burmeister states 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. 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. It also helps to deepen one’s understanding and daily practice of the Self-Help materials.

Accumulation encumbers the digestive, mental, physical and spiritual aspects of the body’s energy. Explore ways to process the information overload that impacts us daily. 1st Depth and 4th Depth help to Harmonize and Flow Let Go and Be the Now Know Myself

Self-Help Workshops
Self-Help workshops offer a wonderful introduction to the Art under guidance of our certified Self-Help tutors. Long term practitioners too benefit from being in this space of awareness.
