SI_0341

Los ejercicios de auto-aplicación (Auto-Breemas) y las secuencias del trabajo corporal de Breema® (en pareja) con el apoyo de los nueve Principios de Armonía de Breema, nos invitan a experimentar el sabor de Estar Presente de una manera práctica.

Los Principios de Armonía son la base del método,  nos dan dirección y guía para estar presentes. Son los siguientes: Cuerpo cómodo, firmeza y suavidad,  participación plena, apoyo mutuo, sin juzgar, momento único/actividad única, sin prisa/sin pausa, sin forzar. Solemos decir que cada principio es una ventana en una sala con nueve ventanas que asoman al mismo jardín: el jardín de Estar Presente. Cuando estás presente ves los Nueve principios manifestándose en cada movimiento y postura que haces.

You support life, and your life is supported.

Breema supports you to relate to yourself as Being-existence, as part of one whole, unified Existence, without thought, without philosophy. That could become your posture towards life. You could take that posture with you and go visit your family. In the atmosphere of that posture, there is harmony. You go to the coffee shop, to a restaurant, to a friend’s, you wash your dishes, clean your kitchen—that atmosphere always emanates harmony. You support life, and your life is supported.

Mutual Support: Cultivating a Relationship With Others by Relating to Yourself by Birthe Kaarsholm

Recently I took a few days off, and was looking forward to having some time to myself, and time for introspection to balance the outer demands of everyday life in the city.

I was standing in the kitchen. It was apparent that most of the day would be spent in cooking and getting the house ready for guests. There was a lot of resistance that manifested as tension in the body—this was not what I had envisioned! I saw there was irritation towards the people around me and it was clear I was not contributing to the atmosphere in a positive way. I was standing in front of the stove stirring the pot cooking rice pudding. The movement of stirring reminded me to connect to the body. I saw that the moment before, I had been completely caught up in thoughts and emotional reactions to what was going on in my head and not at all participating in what I was doing. As I continued to stir the pot, the aliveness of being present with this simple activity was nurturing. Then I was present in myself, and from that taste of presence, I was able to relate to the people around me more constructively.

Bringing Health Into Perspective by Alexandra Johnson

Today I was with a client. He came for Breema bodywork, but also had a question and needed a medical consultation. I wanted to answer his question accurately, but in a way that would actually support his healing, and not deepen identification with his body’s condition.

I offered him medical advice, and we agreed on a treatment plan. After he received Breema bodywork, he mentioned how much the session had helped him to release tension, quiet the mind, and harmonize his emotions. He also said that his attitude about his health was improved. He felt like it was finally ‘in perspective.’ He was still experiencing physical symptoms, but he was no longer draining his emotional energy.

In the absence of fear and worry…

You have Body Comfortable in the absence of fear and worry. Why are we always worried? Because of the thoughts that pass through our mind. When you’re not experiencing your body inhaling and exhaling, it means you are having thoughts. You can’t tell your mind “Don’t think!” and so you can’t order yourself to not worry, to not be afraid. But you can say to your mind, “You have a job. Your job is to stay with the process of inhalation and exhalation.”

Supporting and receiving support from the entirety…

Nothing exists without the principle of Mutual Support. A carpet maintains its form by the support each knot gives all the other knots. A cup is a cup because every atom, through the principle of Mutual Support, supports all the other atoms to hold together. Look at a tree—the branches, trunk, fruit, leaves, and flowers have one thing in common that connects them—the sap. When a branch gets disconnected from the tree and the sap, it no longer has life. Likewise, if we lose our connection to the consciousness in the life force, we are not truly alive. We don’t know who we are, and we look to others to tell us! When you know you are being supported, you wish to support. And you can’t support just one thing, because there is no such thing as “one thing.” Nothing in the entire universe has separate existence. Everything is interrelated and interconnected. If you give support to one cell, you are supporting and receiving support from the entirety. This is so obvious, but you can’t know it by thinking it. You know it by tasting it is so.

How Breema Changed My Life by Ana Wilkinson

Woodbridge’s Ana Wilkinson opens her heart about the amazing therapeutic treatment known as Breema.

“I first discovered Breema many years ago in California at a time when my life was very open and flowing, but not very balanced or grounded! For me, what stood out most about this practice making it so helpful is firstly, what an incredibly gentle and nourishing teaching it is – really nurturing kindness to and acceptance of oneself.   Continue reading “How Breema Changed My Life by Ana Wilkinson”
