What is a Depth?

Wayne Hackett, one of the Jin Shin Jyutsu instructors, was asked what is a Depth? He responded by saying that “a Depth is a dimension of life, which develops as we go. It is a state of our being.”

When Rima Lurie, a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner from Gold Hill, CO, was asked what is a Depth, she said, “Responding to the question about how I would explain the Depths in Jin Shin Jyutsu, I immediately see a vast body of water. Visualizing as if from within the water, and from the side, I am aware of sunlight hitting the surface, the brilliant upper layers becoming shadowed in increasing graduations downward. Perception of sound waves and temperature varies with distance from the surface, and distinct life-like forms characterize the realms. Without rigid boundaries, unique qualities and layers are evident, each being essential to the existence of the whole. Yet, because of fluidity and overlap among the layers, currents, changes, and circumstances in any one place have ramifications everywhere. A water spider makes subtle rippling waves. A trout rising from the depths catches a fly near the surface, sinks…the ripples spread. Wind strengthens, creating waves; in turn, all the Depths respond.”
