An Evening of Breema
with Angela Porter, Carrie Gray, & Matthew Tousignant
Thursday, October 12 · 7:00-9:00 pm
Interoceptive Movement for Self-Care & Transformation in the Therapeutic Relationship
Breema is a simple, natural form of touch and body movement supported by universal principles. The aim of Breema is to bring us to a tangible experience of presence that becomes our foundation for a new dimension of health, consciousness, and self-understanding. The practice of Breema is a direct approach to experiencing body-mind connection, and offers insight into the underlying unity of all life.
Breema self-care and partner movement exercises use nurturing touch, tension-relieving stretches, and rhythmic movements to create physical, mental, and emotional balance. Based on nine principles of harmony—- No Judgment, No Force, Single Moment/Single Activity, Body Comfortable, No Extra, No Hurry/No Pause, Firmness & Gentleness, Full Participation, and Mutual Support—- Breema’s commonsense wisdom guides the practitioner to support the body’s instinctive healing energy, nurturing vitality instead of focusing on symptoms of illness or imbalance. Issues including compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, stress, and burnout are mitigated, while empathy, acceptance, nonjudgment, and an atmosphere of aliveness are nurtured.
The nonjudgmental atmosphere created by our use of the Principles is deeply nourishing and enables us to let go of conditioned patterns, so that we can connect to new and more natural ways of moving, thinking, and feeling—- this is translated directly into our atmosphere as we work with clients. Breema’s Principles can be integrated and applied in any profession and in all activities of daily life, helping us to revitalize ourselves and bring greater harmony to all our relationships.
