Living a Meaningful Life - Self-Breema Class

Matthew Tousignant practicing Self-Breema for Monday morning class

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

Ongoing every Monday at 9am PT.

If we wish to live a meaningful life, we need to know where to find meaning and how to strengthen our connection to it. Habitually, we search for meaning in the world which surrounds us. We move from thing to thing, hoping it will fulfill us. But meaning isn’t in things, it’s in us. Our purpose is to bring that meaning to life.

In the passive state, we are unable to live meaningfully, no matter how hard we try. But in the receptive state, we come into direct contact with meaning. To move from passive towards receptive, we need practical direction and correct guidance. Breema’s Nine Principles of Harmony provide exactly that; a pathway from the meaningless to the meaningful, from the periphery of life toward the center, from the complication of the mind to the simplicity of our being. In the taste of being present, we realize that meaningful living cannot be defined by our activity, state, or lifestyle. Meaning always refers to how we are, to the taste of being present in whatever we are doing.

Join us as we look at how Breema can guide us in this direction and help us find us greater self-understanding. We’ll practice Self-Breema to get a taste of body-mind connection, an essential first step towards becoming present, and discuss how it can enter into all aspects of our lives.
