Wayne Hackett was born and raised in California. He attended Abilene Christian University, where he received a B.S. Ed degree, specializing in the sciences and secondary education. In Texas, he worked in both state and private institutions as a teacher/counsellor.
In 1972, he moved to Boulder, Colorado, where his interest turned towards holistic health and education. Structural integration (the work of Dr. Ida P. Rolf) shaped and focused much of his early study. On November 14, 1977, Wayne met Mary Burmeister, who has been his teacher and inspiration since that day.
Wayne currently makes his home on the Island of Kauai in Hawaii, where he continues his Jin Shin Jyutsu study and maintains a private practice. Wayne travels extensively, presenting Jin Shin Jyutsu lectures in the United States and throughout the world.He has a particular fascination with the esoteric significance of symbols (numbers) and cosmic geometry (planetary relationships).
