Where Is Home by Birthe Kaarsholm

I was recently traveling in Europe teaching Breema workshops.

Halfway through the journey it became clear that I needed to make a decision whether to stay in Europe or to go back to the States. The borders were closing. A friend sent me an email asking, “Are you home? Where is home?”

I had just completed an introductory evening of Breema where a group of mostly new students had gathered to find out about Breema. The requirements for social distancing had not yet come to Stockholm. Still the influence of the media made the people a little nervous to get too close to each other. They were a bit apprehensive to find themselves in a group of strangers. Continue reading “Where Is Home by Birthe Kaarsholm”

Be Where You Are by Mary Cuneo

Mary Cuneo practices Breema bodywork with a receptive client.

Recently, waiting for the traffic light to turn green, the urgent thought “better hurry up!” came, with its familiar twinges of anxiety. I spontaneously took an impression of myself as I sat there, trying to hurry while sitting still: mind, convinced I should be closer to my destination than I was, and that somehow I was wrong to be where I was and not somewhere else; feelings, afraid of being late, critical of myself; and body, generally constricted, breathing shallowly, pronounced tension in belly and shoulders.

Fortunately, the Breema principle of “No Hurry/No Pause”came to mind, inspiring me to do as I do when doing Self-Breema or giving someone a Breema session—get the mind to drop its concept (“I should be elsewhere at this time”) by asking it to take on the task of registering the presence of the body. I did that, was nurtured by it, and felt grateful to be alive. Continue reading “Be Where You Are by Mary Cuneo”

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.

I Want to Be More Present in my Life by Eileen Sendrey

I want to be more present in my life;

I want to be more present with myself;

I want to be more present with my family and friends;

I want to be more present at work or school.

What does that mean? How do I do that?

Presence is the matrix through which we experience all aspects of our human experience. It is fundamental to all relationships with oneself, family and friends, work-life, a sense of meaning and purpose in life and connection to community, nature and to the divine. When we are “present” our mind body and feelings are working together in alignment and we experience more peace and clarity. Without presence we don’t know that we actually exist, nor do we have access to any real information or understanding of what is happening with ourselves or anyone else. Anyone who cultivates presence in their own life and work can, with acceptance, empathy and understanding, relate to others more easily.

Relating to Life in This Moment by Steve Brodsky

Beautiful sky with birds flying over dock on calm water

While at the grocery store the other day ready to check out, I looked from line to line doing my best to figure out which line would be the quickest.  I waited anxiously for my turn as I continued to scan the other lines to determine if I had made the “right” choice. Still considering if I should make a last minute change, I began to unload my groceries on the conveyor belt just as the cashier asked for a price check over the store intercom.  Frustration and anxiety were my first reactions before realizing there was nothing I could do to change my current situation, but there was something I could do to change my relationship to it.

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.

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.

Body-Mind Connection Anchors You by Alexandra Johnson

A client came to see me for a consultation last week. She was frightened about the condition of her body, and had researched her concerns and options thoroughly. The more she spoke, the more tense she became. As I listened to her, I experienced the tension in my own body. I saw that I was identifying with her suffering as if it was my own.

I recognized that instead of feeling bad for her situation, I could offer support by fully listening to her, without commentary. I connected to my breath and the weight of my body on the ground. I put my medical mind on hold, not trying to ‘fix’, or ‘change’ the state of her mind, body, or feelings. Continue reading “Body-Mind Connection Anchors You by Alexandra Johnson”

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.
