October meet-up – Self Help Workshop
Monday, 2nd October 2017, 6.30pm – 9.30pm at Taffs Well Village Hall
This month we were delighted to learn about a Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help technique from Shanta Varsani.
Information about Jin Shin Jyutsu:
Jin Shin Jyutsu, physio-philosophy, brings balance to the body’s energies, which promotes optimal health and well-being, and facilitates our own profound healing capacity. It is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress. Jin Shin Jyutsu employs twenty-six “safety energy locks” along energy pathways that feed life into our bodies. When one or more of the paths becomes blocked, the resulting stagnation can disrupt the local area and eventually disharmonise the complete path of energy flow. Holding these energy locks in combination can bring balance to mind, body, and spirit. Learning Jin Shin Jyutsu engages one in self study, self-help. Through the process of “Now Know Myself” we recognise the wisdom of the body, and we learn to interpret the messages provided and utilise them to restore balance. Jin Shin Jyutsu can be applied as self-help and also by a trained practitioner. It is a gentle art, practised by placing the fingertips (over clothing) on designated safety energy locks, to harmonise and restore the energy flow. This facilitates the reduction of tension and stress which accumulate through normal daily living.
Shanta led the workshop and gave everyone some very useful practices to help alleviate negative emotions. She gave out some handouts and answered loads of questions! We had some very positive feedback from the workshop. Shanta is an energy worker who facilitates in moving forward, clearing blockages and negativity from our lives using many different techniques of which Jin Shin Jyutsu is one.

This was followed by some open discussion over a cuppa and organic chocolate biscuits. Llloyd and Dani talked of some of their dealings with Trading Standards, seemingly intent on eroding the natural health industry. We also talked a little about social engineering and manipulation and the purposeful break-down of family units, up coming health shows and an update on the thermography clinics coming to South Wales very shortly.
