Don’t Fight Dis-Ease, Nurture Vitality!  (LIVE via ZOOM)
Angela Porter, MA, MFT  
Matthew Tousignant, MA, CMT

We are part of one whole, dynamic, ever-changing life process. Forgetting this, we experience dis-ease and think our job is to fight against it or try to eliminate it. But attempting to do that, we increase our discomfort and experience a sense of separation from life. One of Breema’s foundational tenets is “Don’t fight disease, nurture vitality!” Breema guides us to find and support what is whole and healthy within ourselves. Practicing Self-Breema exercises and working with Breema’s Nine Principles of Harmony helps us experience enhanced body-mind connection, and with it, an opportunity to experience movement towards greater health, vitality, and connection to life.

Thursday, November 18th
6:30 PM – 9:30 PM EST
Breema for Trauma Treatment & Somatic Self-Care  (LIVE via ZOOM)
Angela Porter, MA, MFT  
Alexandra Johnson, MD  
Matthew Tousignant, MA, CMT

In this 3-hour online evening workshop, we will explore the role of the body as support for connection, presence, and transformation in the therapeutic relationship. By placing emphasis on the experience of the practitioner, we will explore somatic transference and countertransference and discover how to create a safe, yet dynamic and supportive, relational field in psychotherapy that holds both client and clinician. By cultivating coherence between body and mind using Breema, a dynamic, nurturing, interoceptive practice, we will discover that the body, even in trauma, is our greatest ally, and catalyst for movement towards healing and transformation.

Body-mind connection supports the therapist to be present. Presence invites both the client and therapist to contact and move from that within themselves which is inherently whole. Issues of compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, stress, and burnout are mitigated. A tangible atmosphere of empathy, acceptance, non-judgment, and aliveness is nurtured by practicing trauma informed/somatically resourced psychotherapy.

ABOUT BREEMA


Being Right Now Everywhere Every Moment Myself Actually
Breema, a dynamic, contemplative movement practice, used to support body-mind connection as a catalyst for self-care and transformation in relationship. Its commonsense wisdom guides us to support the body’s instinctive healing energy, nurturing what is vital instead of focusing on symptoms of illness or imbalance.

Breema’s exercises use nurturing touch, tension-relieving stretches, and natural movements based on nine universal Principles of Harmony to foster physical, mental, and emotional balance and availability. Issues including fatigue, stress, self-criticism, and burnout are mitigated, while empathy, acceptance, non-judgment, and an atmosphere of aliveness are nurtured.
