Skills for Life | Self Help | Part Two

The KEYS to Jin Shin Jyutsu: Our 26 Friends

This online course is based on the material in Self Help Book 2 by Mary Burmeister.

This 14th online EDITION STARTS WEDNESDAY 10 January 2024 - See all dates below

How Does This Self Help Course Work?

This is a LIVE course presented online by Astrid Kauffmann to small groups. We meet up on Zoom for two hours each week over three weeks. In each of the two hour segments I cover theory and we practice the exercises. 

What will I learn in Part Two of this course?

In this online course, you will learn the following about our 26 Friends:

  • what they are and their names
  • where they are located on the body
  • who they are: their meaning and function
  • how to use each one of them to clear every day ailments, re-energize the body, manage pain/discomfort, calm the mind and balance emotions
  • practical exercises to recharge all 26 of our 'friends'

How will I benefit from this course?

After this Part 2 course you will:

  • have a clearer understanding of the role of the 26 energy sites (officially called Safety Energy Locks or SELs) in Jin Shin Jyutsu
  • have the confidence to recharge them anywhere, anytime
  • know how to use these 26 SELS in your daily life
  • know which exercises to choose for your practice
  • have an easy, structured program to implement immediately
  • have the tools to guide you during and after the course
  • be supported every step of the way – you are not alone on this journey of transformation

What do I get on this course?

On this Skills for Life Part Two course, I provide you with the following:

  • six hours of class material LIVE with Astrid
  • replay of the Zoom class sessions
  • PDF Workbook of the exercises
  • Audios with guided practice of the exercises
  • unlimited email access to Astrid during the duration of the course

Who is Astrid Kauffmann? 

Since 2001, I have clocked up tens of thousands of hours in the study and practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu. 

I have also taught hundreds of students in offline classroom settings over the last 25 years. From their own feedback, often inspiring them to study and practice further.

Ever since those early days when I used a couple of simple hand positions to stop a migraine, to the awareness of MYSELF today, Jin Shin Jyutsu IS now as fundamental to me as breathing.

I LOVE this ART and I love sharing it with others.

What People Are Saying:

Another fabulous course - many thanks Astrid. Wonderful Jin Shin Jyutsu practices, info and teaching. Looking forward to Part 3!

A.C. from UK rating: EXCELLENT

I was very happy to have been able to participate in these Skills for Life online courses. I have learned so much more about Jin Shin Jyutsu. The course material is very detailed, very organized, and the exercises helped put it into practice. Providing audios for the exercises is just marvelous too!!

A.G. from USA rating: EXCELLENT

Jin Shin Jyutsu is a powerful, yet simple and elegant self-care practice of healing. Astrid is an amazing teacher, and I highly recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to learn from her.

S.F. from USA rating: EXCELLENT

Learning Jin Shin Jyutsu self help in such an easy, relaxed way, in an environment of like-minded people and with Astrid's humorous and enthusiastic way of teaching was a big pleasure for me. The lectures were very well prepared and easy to follow. The practical part was very powerful even if it was online. Astrid always supported us in any possible way and patiently answered all our questions. I got a lot out of this course, and I recommend it to others

H. S. from Switzerland rating: EXCELLENT

I appreciate the way Astrid provides information in such an experienced, warm and engaging way. I felt great confidence that the Jin Shin Jyutsu information was so familiar to Astrid, that my questions, as I thought of them, would all be answered. It is always more rewarding to work with someone like Astrid, who has experience as well as an obvious love of sharing such a valuable and rewarding healing modality. The information in JSJ Skills for Life Part 1 was a lot to absorb all at once, so I was glad to receive the recordings of the sessions for further study, so I could learn, absorb, and build my own familiarity with using the JSJ flows. Thanks, Astrid - You're wonderful!

J.S. from USA rating: EXCELLENT

Astrid's Skills for Life Online Courses were a wonderful experience. She is a treasure-trove of information on Jin Shin Jyutsu and yet is able to present it in a simple, systematic manner that beginners need! The course was very well planned and conducted, with a great mix of theory, practical demos and opportunities for practicing during the classes. The class replays, manuals and audios add value to the whole experience as we can go back to them whenever we need a refresher. Thank you, Astrid!

P.N. from India rating: EXCELLENT

I attended 'Skills for Life' Self Help Parts 1 and 2 with Astrid in 2019 and they were an amazing experience. Astrid is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Jin Shin Jyutsu, and the time flew by. She has a wealth of experience that she shared with us. The days were divided into sections on both the background and theory of Jin Shin Jyutsu and practice of the Art. The class had such a lovely, positive energy and the exercises were amazing. I am looking forward to Part 3 now. I can't recommend this highly enough!

C. N., United Kingdom

Best investment I made and Astrid is a great teacher, her Jin Shin Jyutsu courses are brilliant in every way, the information is passed on with passion and is easy to follow. I would highly recommend her courses, well worth every cent.
