Two Special Topic Classes
Saturday 31st July & Sunday 1st August 2021 

We are delighted to annouce two, new, in-person Special Topic Workshops in Auckland, NZ in July & August 2021.

Saturday 31st July 2021 – The Depths and Nutrition
with Bindee Holland & Jennifer Holmes

Wisdom always recognises the wholeness, while ignorance sees the importance of parts” ~ Mary Burmeister
An exploration of how nutrition can help balance and enhance the qualities of the Depths, to bring about awareness of the foods that we eat and how this reflects in our body.
In this workshop, we discuss the order of the transformation of pulses, referencing the Lumbar circle, the acid and alkaline nature of foods, and relationship of descending and ascending energies.

Sunday 1st August 2021 – The Three Methods Correction
with Jennifer Holmes

Of the Three Methods Correction, Jiro Murai said “The application of any one of these three flows may be sufficient to reverse a lifetime of disharmony.”
Using the Trinity of Mediator, Supervisors and Main Central ‘ specialist’ flows you will learn how to harmonise big labels and global projects – those big Stucks in life. During the three hands on sessions every student will give and receive each of the 3 Methods Correction for deepening their understanding of how and when to apply these wonderful flows.


Jennifer Holmes brings 23 years of love and wisdom for the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu to her classes. Widely travelled, Jennifer raised five children, gained a B.A. in English and Spanish Literature and Language and taught English to overseas’ students for over 13 years, before becoming the first Australasian Instructor in Jin Shin Jyutsu faculty 10 years ago. Her thirst for knowledge, her love of people and their stories keep Jennifer searching for those universal truths which unite all human beings in Oneness.
Bindee Holland lives in Auckland. She has a degree in Biochemistry and Diploma in Nutrition. It was a paper she took in 2012 on the energetics of food and the 5 Element Theory that really sparked her interest. During her first 5 day Jin Shin Jyutsu seminar she was intrigued to see many synergies and new aspects that were really practical and helpful from the perspective of nutrition.The physio-philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu was such a revelation. Bindee is keen to communicate a simple framework that enables self-help and confidence that the food and beverages consumed each day provide the nourishment that our bodies need.

2021 New Zealand Self Help Workshops

Self-Help Workshops – Central Auckland 

Dates: June/July 2021

“Jin Shin Jyutsu is the Art of releasing tensions which are the causes for various symptoms in the body.  Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art as opposed to a technique because a technique is a mechanical application, whereas an art is a skillful creation. This beautiful, simple Art is our inheritance”. – Jin Shin Jyutsu inc.
Beginning with an introduction, some stories of Jiro & Mary and self-help finger holds we shall then progress to uncover the magic within Books 1, 2 & Book 3.  Through understanding application of the wonderful helpers in the Self-Help books, we may deepen our connection to the Universal Creative Energy, available to all.

Jennifer has been studying the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu for 20+ years, with every year bringing new insights and discoveries. She began a conscious spiritual journey in her twenties while travelling the world and working in Australia, the United Kingdom and Spain teaching children, and then adult language students Meeting and studying with a spiritual teacher in Germany and then back in her country of New Zealand, Jennifer continued teaching, tutoring foreign students and rearing a family of five very active children.
In 1998 she attended her first 5 day class in Auckland and opened her JSJ practice, which she still continues today. In 2003 she travelled to Scottsdale where she met Mary Burmeister, beginning the following year as Organizer for classes in New Zealand. In 2011 her journey as an Instructor for JSJ Inc began as she was accepted onto the faculty. Today more than ever, she loves bringing the philosophy of the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu and practical help to many people worldwide.

Jin Shin Jyutsu Self help

Jin Shin Jyutsu (Art of Man & the Creator) is the art of knowing yourself.

We all possess an innate awareness which holds within it all the tools that we need to genuinely enrich our health & the quality of our lives.

This awareness has been deadened by the society in which we live & our reliance on external information & stimulus.

Jin Shin Jyutsu enables us to re-experience this awareness. Moreover, it teaches us how to utilize it for greater physical, mental & spiritual well-being.

When the stress & strain of daily living disrupts the movement of life energy (Chi) our Mind, Body & Spirit are all affected. Not only do we succumb to worry, Fear, anger, sadness & pretentions, but we increase our tendency to become ill or out of balance.

Quite simply Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is a way to balance the life energy.

This Self help course consists of the study of three Jin Shin Jyutsu books,

Book one comprises – Introduction to JSJ, the energy flows of the body, Main Central channel, some of the body function energy flows & finger holds.

Book two comprises – the 26 safety energy locks of the body & holds that can be used to recharge each one

Book three comprises – finger & toe holds & diagonal energy flows
