Whether you are currently considering becoming a Certified Breema Practitioner, are totally new to Breema, or are an experienced student, this 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.
To support others, we must first learn how to support ourselves. Breema offers a foundation by which one can learn to relate to any experience (“good” or “bad”) from the strength of body-mind connection. This directly addresses burnout by offering tools to return to oneself, renew energy, and discover the well of support and vitality available within the body.
In this retreat weekend, we will look at Breema, and the ways in which it facilitates an experiential relationship to the Nine Principles of Harmony. Both Breema bodywork and the Nine Principles support us to find harmony in our relationship to ourselves and in our professional and personal lives.
You can participate in the entire weekend, or just attend 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 Santa Cruz County COVID guidelines.

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.
