Learn, practice, experience the 8 Finger Poses that are the birth of Jin Shin Jyutsu as we know it today!
“…Jiro Murai meditated and experienced the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu in his terminal condition. He utilized the following finger poses to prove to himself that they were effective in clearing all circulation blockages. It is the blocking of the various body function circulatory systems for the renewing and the maintenance of the body that becomes discomforts - various kinds of labels.”
~ Jin Shin Jyutsu Self Help Book III, pg 9.
In this casual lecture & experiential Self Help (Self Care) PlayShop, you:

"Mudra meditation with Vivia was dynamic and rich. I was taken on a magical journey deep within." ~Alli Koski
"It was clear from the begining of my involvement with Vivia and her mudra classes that I was the hands of a knowledgeable teacher. Her experience with spiritual practice and students helped to create a comfortable environment where we could all easily connect and relate on level beyond that of average communication."

"Vivia's mudra meditations are nothing short of magical journeys of spirit. They always leave me feeling grateful and at ease, as if a deep abiding healing has taken place."
~ Linda Maree
"" Over 7 years ago, I began my meditation practice with Vivia in Boston. We met in many places and each time I learned more about myself and my ability to sit calmly and breath. I had always felt I was not good enough at meditating, thus scared in a way to do it. After a few classes with Vivia, I learned the power of breathing, calming hand mudras and setting intentions. Simple, energizing and challenging all at once. I am grateful for Vivia's kind teaching and to this day enjoy each time I get to sit, breath and meditate." ~Parra Bridget

What is Jin Shin Jyutsu:
Widely known more than 3,000 years ago, the ancient wisdom of Jin Shin Jyutsu was dramatically revived by Japanese Master Jiro Murai in 1912 after he cleared himself of a “terminal” illness. Jin Shin Jyutsu is applied to the body through gentle touch and can be received from a trained practitioner or applied to one’s self. Mary Burmeister, brought the knowledge of this ancient wisdom to America and wrote a series of self help books with projects for daily health maintenance and to address energetic imbalances. You will experience one or more of the self help projects from these books in each class.
No previous experience required! Join us for one or more classes!
Comfort is key. Yoga mats, blankets, and chairs are provided, or bring your own.
