Skills for Life | Self Help | Part One


This online course is based on the material in Self Help Book 1 by Mary Burmeister.

The 16th Online Edition Starts WEDNESDAY 4 September, 2024 - SEE DATES BELOW

How Does This Self Help Course Work?

This is a LIVE course presented online by Astrid Kauffmann to 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.

This is part one in a series of three online courses.

What will I learn in Part One of this course?

In this online course, you will learn:

  • how energy works and how Jin Shin Jyutsu fits into that
  • what are the Depths and how they are fundamental to Jin Shin Jyutsu
  • why and how Jin Shin Jyutsu works when you use your hands
  • why everything is in the fingers! 
  • how to harmonize mind, body and spirit using the three main energy pathways that feed all 144,000 of our energy functions
  • how to use some powerful daily 'cleaners' to release tensions
  • how to practice this Art as Self Help
  • how to experience Jin Shin Jyutsu through practical exercises

How will I benefit from this course?

After the course you will:

  • have a clearer understanding of Jin Shin Jyutsu
  • have the confidence to practice Jin Shin Jyutsu anywhere, anytime
  • know how to use Jin Shin Jyutsu 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 One 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.

Astrid is a great natural teacher. Her lessons with a mix of theory, exercises and room for questions, together with the colourful layout of her presentation, are really well thought out and a pleasure to follow.

Astrid provides information in such an experienced, warm and engaging way. I felt great confidence that Jin Shin Jyutsu is so familiar to Astrid, that my questions would all be answered. It is always more rewarding to work with someone who has experience as well as an obvious love of sharing such a valuable and rewarding healing modality. Thanks, Astrid - You're wonderful!

I was very happy to have been able to participate in these Skills for Life online courses. I have learned so much more, and 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

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

Astrid's Skills for Life Online Course was a wonderful experience. She is a treasure-trove of information on JSJ 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

Astrid is so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Jin Shin Jyutsu. She has a wealth of experience that she shared with us. The course was 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. It was an amazing experience. I can't recommend this highly enough!

C. N. from United Kingdom rating: EXCELLENT

Astrid’s Part 1 course is a good starting point if you have little Jin Shin Jyutsu knowledge. There is so much to learn but she endeavours to answer questions throughout the course in a straightforward fashion. It’s helpful to have a teacher who is interested in your progress and invested in helping you understand how to work on yourself and others. Thank you so much Astrid!! I’m looking forward to Part 2.

L.K. from USA rating: EXCELLENT

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