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.

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.

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.

The heart always sees in totality.

Living from the heart means your Being is manifesting. The heart never loses track of the meaning of that which is. The heart itself is that is-ness. The first step is to be with the body. When your mind and body are together, the heart contributes its presence. You are what you see in the mirror, but you are also what produces that image. If you see both, you are seeing from the heart. The heart always sees in totality, not in separation. The mind is fragmented, but the heart is unified. Living from the heart means living in unity. Full Participation brings you to the heart. Body Comfortable brings you to the heart. No Extra, No Judgment, Mutual Support, No Force—each of the Nine Principles of Harmony brings you to the heart. The Nine Principles are the emanation of the heart.
