Finding the Meaning in Every Moment - Self-Breema Class

Matthew Tousignant practicing Self-Breema

This online event begins at 9:00am PDT, 12:00pm EDT, 18:00 CEST, 19:00 IDT.

Ongoing every Monday at 9am PT.

Can we make our life on this planet meaningful? If so, how do we do it? Big questions like these can often seem overwhelming or confusing. But what if the answer were simple? What if the meaning was not in things, activities, or anything outer, but in you?

In Breema, we say “the emphasis is not on what I am doing but rather on how I am." In our search for meaning, this is our talisman, our compass. Because meaning isn’t in what was or what will be but in what is, in this moment. Breema puts so much emphasis on the body (body-mind connection) because the body is our entrance to meaning. You can’t learn Breema with your mind. You can’t find meaning through thoughts, concepts, sensations, or emotions. By working with the aim of being present and the Nine Principles of Harmony, you may find the meaning in yourself.

The exercises sometimes include kneeling, and occasionally lying down on the floor, so please wear comfortable clothing, and have a space with a carpet, yoga mat, or some padding, so you can comfortably participate.

CE available: 1.0 hours
The Breema Center is approved to offer continuing education for massage practitioners and bodyworkers by the NCBTMB (#145251-00). If you’re interested in CE for this class, please email for important details.
