The Benefits of Studying Breema in Daily Life by Ashik Staud

Studying Breema, I have found that practicing both Breema bodywork and Self- Breema exercises can give me the knowledge that “I have a body,” a knowledge that doesn’t belong to the mind, the emotions or sensations, but to an inner authority that exists independently from them. When you go to Breema classes, you will hear, again and again, to “register that your body is breathing,” and that “your body has weight.” These reminders and the nine universal principles of Breema have helped me to have moments when the knowledge that “there is a body” is present, my center of gravity is within myself, and I am collected and not scattered in my thoughts.

Breema as a Support for Presence in Everyday Life by Denise Berezonsky

The aspect of Breema that I find most compelling is that everything it teaches is meant to be brought into ordinary everyday life. By applying the Breema principles and connecting to the actual experience of the body while practicing the bodywork and Self-Breema exercises, I get a taste of myself which is free from the conditioned pattern of my ordinary ways of thinking and seeing the world. The more I experience these tastes of my unconditioned self, the more I know that this is how I wish to live my life.

Reconnecting with Yourself by Alexandra Johnson

Breema Pracitioner giving a Breema bodywork to comfortable recipient.

Yesterday, after spending the day in computer meetings, I noticed how low my energy was, as well as my mood. Yet when it came time to go to bed, I found myself aimlessly scrolling on my phone.

Today I taught a virtual Self-Breema class. I saw how, over the course of the class, my energy began to increase. Even though the class was online, my focus was inward, and not out at the screen. As I tapped on my legs as part of the exercise, I experienced the vitalizing effect of receiving Breema. This deepened when I worked with relaxing my hands and brought in the principle of No Hurry/No Pause.

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.
