Being Available to Life by Angela Porter

Because of studying Breema, there is something in me that knows the taste of body, and also recognizes the difference between that taste and when I’m caught in my thoughts. It’s not about becoming better or becoming anything; it’s about being, in this moment. Not Angela being, just being, just that, and Angela is included. If it’s about being anything, it’s about being available to life.

When I connect to this body, I am more available to life. It sounds simple, yet when I have this taste, there is absolutely nothing else I want. I know that this being, this aliveness, this unity, is what I want and what I have, in some way, been looking for my whole life. Continue reading “Being Available to Life by Angela Porter”

Off the Mat and Into the Marketplace by Susan Mankowski

Translation available in Spanish

Body-Mind Connection in Daily Life

I first heard the term “body-mind” in the ‘70s while in the Milwaukee University dance department. I was introduced to many evolving approaches that explored the interaction between these two parts. During that time, I learned how to use the mind as a tool to discover the nuances of sensory-based states, conditions, and stored experiences in my body. These methods are currently the roadmaps for the field of somatic practice.

Breema: equilibrio mental, físico y emocional por Salena Irion

Terapias Naturales 2008

La salud real significa una única cosa. Armonía con la existencia. Del libro de Jon Schreiber, Breema y los Nuevos Principios de Armonía.

Hoy en día todos sabemos cuanto afecta a nuestra salud el desequilibrio mental y emocional. Nuestras tensiones y estrés repercuten en nosotros y generan enfermedades. Cuando la mente no está con el cuerpo, aparecen los bloqueos y la inercia. Sin embargo, cuando conectamos nuestros tres centros: cuerpo, mente y emociones, surge el bienestar y la vitalidad. Breema, el arte de estar presente, nutre la raíz de la salud: genera unión y equilibrio entre cuerpo, emociones y mente, creando una atmósfera receptiva para poder vivir y experimentar el momento presente.

Einfach nur Sein by Cornelia Weiss

Breema ist eine wesentliche Orientierungshilfe für die Arbeit an sich selbst. Über die Körperarbeit werden Präsent-Sein und tieferes Verstehen erfahrbar.

Lichtblick-Magazin für praktizierte Individualpsychologie 81 – September 2012

Es war für mich eine große Freude, im Rahmen des IP-Forums zwei Breema-Workshops anbieten zu können. Die Resonanz der Teilnehmer/innen zu erleben, war einfach schön. Breema ist vielleicht nicht für jeden das Richtige, aber die meisten blühen in solchen Workshops innerhalb kurzer Zeit regelrecht auf. Die Gesichter entspannen sich, der Blick wird o ener und klarer. In der Gruppe entsteht eine ru- hige und gleichzeitig kraftvolle Atmosphäre. Es ist ein Ankommen bei sich selbst auf eine tiefe und gleichzeitig sehr einfache Weise. Und dieses tiefere Ankommen bei sich selbst ermöglicht auch tiefere und echtere Begegnungen mit anderen.

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.
