*Shinjitsu: Is a practical method of personal empowerment. It is comprised of combined methods from the Martial Arts and various Energy Based Healing methods. The aim of Shinjitsu to refine and harmonise the three aspects of Self (Body, Mind, and Spirit). Once these aspects are integrated we can more fully engage in the “now” of each present moment with the full power of focused intention and attention. This approach allows you to be active participant in the process of reinventing yourself, not just a passive recipient of information.
Body ( I do) ~ Mind ( I am) ~ Spirit ( I feel)
In order for consciousness to operate in our three dimensional reality it has to be embedded in a physical body. Pure awareness steps down into physical form through the mechanisms of bio-energy and the physiology of the body. Let us call this unified expression of consciousness “The Self”. For ease of learning this can be separated into three expressions: Body, Mind and Spirit.
In Shinjitsu training we approach these elements from the following perpective.
The Body (I DO) : Spacial awareness, breathing, flow and movement as an expression of Mind and Spirit. Being fully engaged in the “Now” of the three dimensional world by the expression of “I do”.
Watch words: Stillness in the midst of action.
The Mind (I AM): Stilling the Mind, intention and awareness as one, harmonizing left brain logic with right brain imagination. Experiencing the unfettered, co-ordinated interplay of the left (creativity) and right (logic) hemispheres of the brain as a direct expression of “ I am”.
Watchwords: Clarity and coherence of Mind.
The Spirit (I FEEL): Direct experiencing the inherent life essence that flows through all things. This is the Tao, the force that translates energy into matter and consciousness into experience.
Watchwords: Absorption and projection of focused intention.
Why this is important:
By developing a proficiency these three interconnected areas we can create a way to divert our attention from being mired in fear based thinking. When you heal the divisions within yourself it opens the door to developing a deep sense of wholeness within and by extension a sense of connection to the living Universe.

*Shinjitsu: The Japanese word shinjitsu meaning “Truth” also translates to “reality”. shinjitsu is composed of the kanji 真 (read shin) meaning “true; truth; reality” and 実 (read jitsu) meaning “truth; reality”.
I chose the name Shinjitsu to represent the quest to find the truth of ourselves. Each person’s truth is unique unto themselves. Martial Arts is but one path among many that we can walk to unavel the mystery of ourselves. The answers lie within, look for them there.
