Who We Are

Jin Shin Guild is an international non-profit organization based in Switzerland.

It consists of a group of people committed to studying, practicing and teaching the ancient Art of Jin Shin.

The primary aim is to keep the knowledge alive and pure, rooted in its philosophy, as rediscovered by Jiro Murai and brought to the Western world by Mary Mariko Burmeister.

Evolution is the Law of Life. In honoring this principle, Jin Shin Guild prepares new generations capable of continuing the dissemination of the Art.

Board Members

The Art of Jin Shin has been a central focus of Wayne’s life for over 40 years. For 30 years, he studied with Mary Burmeister. She will always be a great inspiration for him.
The journey started back in 1972, when his interest turned towards holistic health and education. Structural integration, the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf, framed much of his early studies. Then, in 1977, he met Mary Burmeister who introduced him to Jin Shin Jyutsu®, the Art that shaped his life since then. Wayne has been traveling throughout the world and has introduced the Art of Jin Shin to thousands of students around the planet. 
Inspired by Jiro Murai’s mathematical calculations integrated into the Art of Jin Shin, Wayne has a particular fascination with the esoteric significance symbols (numbers) and their functions. Similarly, cosmic geometry (planetary relationships) is a passion he derived from the unique handout Mary Burmeister used to give to her students – the Answer Sheet, showing the human being as a reflection of the Universe. 
Wayne has specialized in the sciences and secondary education, being awarded a B.S. Ed degree. He has worked in both state and private institutions as a teacher/counselor. 
Currently, he lives on the Island of Kauai, Hawaii, where he continues to study and maintains a private practice in the Art of Jin Shin. 

Wayne Hackett


Carlos has been an instructor of Jin Shin Jyutsu® since 2000. He has taught this art in 27 countries around the world for over 20 years. 
In 2004, he organized the first Jin Shin Jyutsu International Forum in Brazil, which brought together JSJ instructors and practitioners from around the world. 
He was a founding member of the Jin Shin Jyutsu Brazilian office, and he served on its Board until 2009. 
Together with Wayne Hackett, Carlos created the class “Celebration of Light” to honor Jiro Murai, who began his journey to rediscover the Art of Jin Shin one hundred years prior. 
Carlos has practiced meditation since his early childhood.  He has studied Eastern and Western philosophy and mythology. Following Mary Burmeister’s path, he studied the same authors she did in her research to enrich the Art of Jin Shin.

Liliane Ortiz

Sueli was introduced to Jin Shin Jyutsu® through the book The Touch of Healing. Due to a sudden onset of an incurable illness, Sueli retired from a well-stablished international career. After becoming aware of the need to look at health through a different lens, she became a Reiki Usui practitioner. Her discovery journey brought Jin Shin Jyutsu into her path and practicing the Art on herself brought her an indescribable sense of, overall, well-being. Studying Jin Shin Jyutsu and becoming a practitioner was a natural path to follow.

Sueli holds an LL.M. degree in public international law and the law of international organizations, and a post-graduate degree in public international law and development law. She is a lawyer, registered at the Brazilian Bar Association, and also holds a B.S. degree in Communications, with a major in Journalism. Her professional experience, in both private and non-profit sectors, is where she discovered her passion for learning design approaches.  

She is proud to share her knowledge and experience in learning design approaches and methodologies, knowledge acquisition, and quality standards frameworks to foster learning of the Art of Jin Shin.
