Bringing Harmony into Daily Life by Luna Lacey and Elaine Pendergrast

What is Breema?

Breema is an art: the art of being present. As a practice that nurtures the wholeness of the individual, Breema has the profound effect of supporting students to experience their body, mind, and feelings working together in unity. As that experience becomes familiar, students become more available to live fully in each moment and experience the harmony that comes from that.

Breema: The Dance of Existence by Susan Mankowski

Alexis Mulhauser Breema Bodywork Dance Week

When I started studying Breema, I was captivated by the unusual yet totally natural way of moving with the whole body, both in the Self-Breema (individual) exercises and in the bodywork (two-person) sequences.

Having first trained as a dancer,  I felt constrained by the almost exclusive use of my arms, hands, and fingers while working in massage for several decades. I stood alongside massage tables and leaned forward and over them, often reaching in uncomfortable ways. That’s why I immediately said “Yes!” to the total body participation that is intrinsic to doing every Breema sequence and Self-Breeema exercise.

The Practice of Being Present by Luna Lacey

Mindfulness, meditation, and being present are popular topics. Decreased stress and tension, increased energy, clearer thinking, more connection, authentic relationships, better health, sharper memory, lower blood pressure, and less anxiety are all part of the appeal. But to experience these positive effects in our life, a commitment is necessary to start and then sustain a practice of being present. 

Breema offers a three-fold approach that supports us to enter the present moment. Breema leaves nothing out. There are Nine Principles of Harmony to work with the mind, bodywork and self-care exercises to work with the body, and an essential teaching of nonjudgment to work with the feelings.

Practicing Breema at an Intensive

Breema bodywork, Self-Breema exercises, and the Nine Principles of Harmony are natural expressions of the unifying principle of Existence. They provide ideal support for practicing body-mind connection and the art of being present.

Both new and experienced students from around the world come each year to study at Breema Intensives and to benefit from Breema’s practical approach to living harmoniously. This is what they say, “Practicing Breema gives me this incredible opportunity every time to connect to this wellspring of joy and gratitude. There is so much support to just come back to myself. It helps me in my daily life. It really just enriches my life in so many ways. Seeing and accepting but not judging myself.”

Health means wholeness.

Health means wholeness. You can look at health as a large meadow, a large field. When water flows and reaches every part of that field, it is healthy. When energy flows to every part of our body, we are healthy. When there is a problem, you may begin searching for where the energy hasn’t reached, where it is stuck. But when your diagnosis leads you to a single cause, you’re moving away from the truth. In the interconnectedness and interrelatedness of everything that exists, can you find a single cause for anything? When you look correctly, you find that the cause of any particular thing is everything! That’s why Breema doesn’t diagnose. But to have health, energy does need to flow. So Breema advises us that the best and most effective way to deal with a problem is to increase vitality.

…to have new thoughts, new feelings, a new posture towards life.

Breema offers the possibility of transforming yourself into an instrument that can receive Conscious energy. Otherwise, we only receive energy mechanically, which means we’re always in the past or the future. That’s why we don’t know that we are. We can’t know that unless we are fully present. We practice Breema to get a brand new taste of our existence, to have new thoughts, new feelings, a new posture towards life.

Consciousness grows when you experience that you are conscious.

You may wish to be more conscious, to be present, to be connected. But there is one difficulty—consciousness cannot be developed unconsciously. Consciousness grows when you experience that you are conscious. How can we search for that experience if we’ve never had it? It takes a lot for us to come to the simple fact that we have no idea what consciousness is. It’s harder for us to accept that we are not conscious than to become conscious! Yet no understanding is possible without being conscious.

Moving from Complication to Simplicity by Elaine Pendergrast

Like many of you, I can barely keep up with the demands of life: my job, a house with three cats, a social circle of long-time friends and neighbors, a large garden with chickens, bees, and a rabbit (okay, so most of you don’t have those), and my own health and well-being. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and find myself standing in the kitchen with no idea of what to do first, as happened a few nights ago.

At times like that, I know I have to prioritize, but in order to do that, I need to be centered and clearheaded. To help me become more present and available, I turn to the tools that have helped me in so many circumstances, those that I gained from my study and practice of Breema.
