Breema: Exercises for the Art of Being Present (BODYWORK – 17BREE10)

October 7, 2017 @ 9:30 am - October 8, 2017 @ 1:45 pm

Breema is a practical, truly holistic approach to becoming present by unifying body, mind and feelings. It consists of two body-based components—Breema bodywork and Self-Breema exercises—and nine universal principles. Practiced fully clothed on a comfortably padded floor, Breema uses natural rhythmic movements that are both nurturing and energizing. Practicing Breema and its principles invites a receptive mind, supportive feelings and a vital body. The workshop is appropriate for health practitioners wishing to apply what they learn with their patients, the public wishing to practice with family members, and anyone wishing to enhance their own self-care. October 7 & 8, Sat 9:30 a.m.- 5 p.m., and Sun 9:30 a.m.-1:45 p.m. Room 186 Instructor: Jon Schreiber. (10 CEUs, PDAs, CMEs)

Description: Breema is based on a profound understanding of the underlying unity of all life, expressed through the Nine Principles of Harmony. The atmosphere of a Breema workshop is deeply nourishing and revitalizing. Through Breema bodywork and Self-Breema you can explore and experience first-hand the Nine Principles, which can be applied in any activity or situation. The Nine Principles are: body comfortable, no extra, firmness and gentleness, full participation, mutual support, no judgment, single moment/single activity, no hurry/no pause, and no force.

Practicing Breema can help you to be present and bring greater harmony to all aspects of your life, as well as to nurture yourself in the midst of life’s demands.
