Entering Into Health by Alexandra Johnson

Breema practitioner experiencing joy and natural forest setting

Lately, patients have been asking about conditions that are commonly considered natural consequences of aging. They are interested in synthesizing information from other doctors, friends or the media, to explore how to really support health and vitality. They have a wish to experience for themselves what can best support their body, not just rely on someone else’s advice. Through this process, they hope to develop an active relationship with their body, mind, and feelings. Continue reading “Entering Into Health by Alexandra Johnson”

Everything needs the correct energy.

When you do your job properly, things work. When you don’t, they don’t. It’s as simple as that. Everything needs the correct energy. You need to relate to each person with the right energy if you want your interaction to move in the direction of greater harmony. Say you have a key chain with 100 keys on it. Each key will open one specific lock. You can’t just use any key—you need the right one, which you can find by being present. You have to see what you wish and move towards it. Then life becomes an art.

The foundation of health is acceptance.

Your aliveness is healing. Aliveness doesn’t come from your mind. It comes from your Being. Transformation of energy is possible first through the body, then through the feelings, and lastly through the mind. Whatever is in the mind and the feelings, we allow it to be. Breema doesn’t try to get rid of anything. Breema doesn’t focus on sickness, because the foundation of health is acceptance.

When you want to nurture someone…

When you want to nurture someone, give them food; don’t talk about how great food tastes. Our desire should be to nurture others, not to impress them. Making things complicated may impress others. But simplicity nurtures.

Wholehearted participation in any activity…

Wholehearted participation in any activity lessens tension. And when the body is flexible, balanced, and more free of tension, it helps the mind and feelings relate to life more harmoniously. The most important step towards releasing tension is to first know you’re tense. One precious thing about Breema is that it tells you to allow that which is, and be grateful you saw it. That gratitude is additional energy you can use.

The natural rhythm of your body…

In Breema, you function with the natural rhythm of your body. Your mind supports you in that, and your feelings are present and supportive, too. The unification of your mind, feelings, and body saves your energy from being drained. You use your energy, but without becoming fatigued. When you work with only one part of yourself, the energy that’s used is lost. When your mind, feelings, and body work together, a “return circuit” is created, and the energy you use flows back to you “with interest.” That is vitality.

Nourishment for the life around us…

Every year, a tree has to show some new growth. New branches, new buds, new leaves—something new has to be there. We also need to show some yearly growth, some “income” from the expenditure of our energy. We need to have some new understanding, some new insight into the meaning and purpose of life. A tree bears fruit. We, too, need to provide nourishment for the life around us.

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.

Your appetite for a more meaningful life.

We can nurture our feelings by doing small things—things we find rewarding while we’re doing them, without an emphasis on outer approval. If you like to draw, spend a few minutes drawing a picture. If you like to sing, sing for your own enjoyment. As your feelings are nurtured, they begin to ask you to do things which you’re genuinely interested in, like really listening to the sound of the water you’re boiling for tea. Or to really look at the birds outside your window. Once your feelings begin participating in your life, your mind starts to yearn for good food, too. Instead of automatically looking at the news and mechanically watching or reading whatever is there, it may ask you to choose something that’s of real interest to you. By nurturing your feelings, you can support your appetite for a more meaningful life.

Your body is not just matter.

Your body is not just matter. There’s a lot more to it. It has an emanation. When you do Breema, your direction is to come from the passive to the active state, by bringing body and mind together, and from the active state to the receptive state, in which body, mind, and feelings work together in harmony. That receptivity enables you to receive verification (through taste) of the fact that you have a body. Through your own receptivity, the recipient may also become receptive to their own body’s existence. When both practitioner and recipient have this receptivity, their emanation creates an atmosphere, a field. That atmosphere supports both to experience real health. In this way, Breema goes beyond the simple laws of arithmetic. One plus one becomes “two-plus.”
