“In any given moment, you could be nurtured by your surroundings, by your relationship to your body, mind, and feelings, by your relationship to your life and your Being. This is the aim of Self-Breema.” —Jon Schreiber, in ‘Self-Breema: Exercises for Harmonious Life’
Self-Breema exercises are movement sequences that support the body’s vitality, increase the availability of the mind, and nurture our true feelings. The movements range from energetic and playful to calm and contemplative. Practicing Self-Breema provides a way to balance whatever state we find ourselves in. The exercises can help us overcome lethargy by increasing our energy, or relieve stress by decreasing tension.
On a more essential level, as our body, mind, and feelings work together with the unified aim of participating fully in the movements, we may experience a deep sense of being present, a new way of relating to ourselves and everything around us, and a glimpse of the potential and purpose of being human.
This workshop is especially suited to those who have little or no prior experience with Self-Breema. In a nurturing, nonjudgmental atmosphere, we will practice simple Self-Breema exercises, cover all the basic elements, and discover how to work with the Nine Principles of Harmony while doing the exercises. For more about Breema’s universal principles, click here. We will also look at:
- incorporating the exercises into our busy lives
- extending the benefit of the exercises into our everyday activities.
Join us for a nurturing, invigorating, inspiring journey that can support every aspect of your life.
