BREEMA: Connecting to the Bigger Picture - Breema Bodywork Class Series

Sun glaring through craggy mountain tops with spring flowers in bloom.
Instructor: Matthew Tousignant

Most of our difficulties arise from relating to life events through fragmented and incomplete perspectives. Connecting to the Bigger Picture introduces a more inclusive, comprehensive, and holistic look at life. Rather than being based on the relative knowledge of the separated, individual parts, it is grounded in the wisdom of the whole and the essential relationship between part and whole. In Breema, connection to the bigger picture begins with connection to the body, to the knowledge of there is a body which we know in the present by taste.

Using Breema's Nine Principles of Harmony as the class foundation, this series explores how to "tune our instrument", by bringing mind, body, and feelings together, and what it means to taste Being present. Each class includes instruction in Breema partner exercises/bodywork, Self-Breema exercises, and body-centered meditation. 

No prior experience is necessary.

Hours can be applied to the Breema Center's Practitioner Certificate Program. CEs are available for massage therapists, bodyworkers, and other health professionals. Classes are instructed by Matthew Tousignant, MA, CMT, Somatic Psychotherapist and Certified Breema Instructor.

Classes will be held at The 5th Element in Lambertville, New Jersey


Each class is from 7:00–9:00pm
