Giving and Receiving Take Place Simultaneously - Breema Weekend Course

Whether you are currently considering becoming a Breema Practitioner, are totally new to Breema, or are an experienced student, the weekend is a perfect opportunity to nourish your body, mind, and feelings through Breema bodywork, Self-Breema exercises, and Breema's universally applicable practical philosophy.

In this retreat weekend, we will introduce Breema's Nine Principles of Harmony, with a particular emphasis on the principle of Mutual Support. Mutual Support is the foundation of every positive relationship, and the key to successful practitioner-client relationships. We will gain direct experience by working with this essential principle, and exploring its application in Breema bodywork.

You can participate in the entire weekend, or attend just one or more of the four workshops. Pre-registration is required. Call or email the Breema Center for more information. 

We follow current California State and Alameda County COVID guidelines.

CE is available for massage therapists and bodyworkers, nurses, LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, and LEPs. $10 fee for processing

    Kevin Johnson

    Kevin has been studying Breema since 2003.  After studying several mind-body modalities over the years, he was happy to discover Breema.  He was drawn to the practice as he found it very useful outside of the classroom in everyday life.  It is also a very simple practice focusing on registering the breath and the weight of the body.

    Kevin lives in Santa Cruz with his wife and 5 children.  He enjoys yoga, hiking, body boarding and travel.
