In-person

This is an in-person class series at the Breema Center.

Breema speaks the language of your Being. You hear it from inside yourself, as though you are expressing a hidden understanding that has always been a part of you. That expression harmonizes your mind, feelings, and body.

Practicing Breema and working with the Nine Principles gives you the possibility to create a new relationship to life. Every moment you have of being present becomes the foundation of that relationship.

Being-participation is totally new in each moment, no two tastes are ever identical, yet every taste is tangible. By coming to the body again and again, we see and understand that experience is not in our mind, not in our feelings, nor in our sensations. It is a knowledge that is rooted in Consciousness.
