Breema Bodywork®, Self-Breema Exercises®, and The Nine Principles of Harmony are natural expressions of the unifying principle of Existence.
They offer a practical means of becoming present, a commonsense approach to physical, mental, and emotional health, and a new way of learning that leads to increased understanding of ourselves and a deepening sense of fulfillment, meaning, and purpose.
What is BREEMA?
Breema: The Art of Being Present is a Teaching of the heart that includes the Nine Principles of harmony, the transformative, floor-based Breema bodywork and dynamic Self-Breema exercises.
Breema Bodywork Treatments
Breema bodywork treatments use a wide variety of rhythmic movements, gentle stretches, and fully-supported postures which are comfortable and enjoyable, and deeply-nourishing. This approach comes from a deep understanding of the unity of all life, and is expressed in practical terms by Breema's Nine Principles of Harmony. The principles help the practitioner become balanced and to conserve energy which is usually lost to physical, mental and emotional tension. They create an atmosphere of real acceptance in which the recipient can most deeply be nurtured.
Breema treatments with Dave at True Nature are either 30 or 60 minutes, and are received on comfortably-padded rugs and are included in most of our retreats. Recipients should wear clothes that are loose or stretchy, with long pants and socks. (Note that individual treatments can be scheduled for those not attending retreats. .)
Self-Breema Exercises Release Tension
& Bring Balance to Body, Mind & Feelings
All retreats at True Nature include Self-Breema classes with Dave, which support balance and allow the mind to quiet without force. Self-Breema exercises use nurturing touch, tension-relieving stretches, and rhythmic movements to create physical, mental, antd emotional balance. Breema’s commonsense wisdom guides each person to support the body’s instinctive healing energy, nurturing vitality instead of focusing on symptoms of illness or imbalance.
The Breema philosophy and its Nine Principles of Harmony address the essential nature of life, the deeper meaning of health and how to actualize it, and the means of gaining practical, self-verified knowledge that can lead to an understanding of our unique potential as human beings.
Every aspect of Breema, including the form of the movement, the atmosphere, the practitioner-recipient dynamic, and the purpose and effect of the sequence or exercise, is a perfect expression of those interrelated principles. We look forward to supporting you to have a taste of this revitalizing art!
