The atmosphere of the workshop is deeply reju- venating, accepting, supportive, and alive. Our focus is on exploring and gaining first-hand experience of the Nine Principles of Harmony, which can be applied in any activity or situa- tion. Through the Nine Principles, we discover a receptive mind, supportive feelings, and a relaxed body. Breema bodywork and Self- Breema exercises are ideal vehicles for entering into Breema’s comprehensive philosophy and understanding of the meaning and purpose of life.


Practicing Breema also brings increased flexibili- ty, ease, comfort, vitality, and a tangible sense of wholeness and aliveness. By the end of the weekend, you will have learned a variety of Self- Breema exercises and Breema sequences that you can comfortably and joyfully practice on your own.


The bodywork is received fully clothed; partici- pants should be comfortable sitting and work- ing on a padded floor.

Breema® : The Art of Being Present Jon Schreiber


Breema bodywork is a teaching of the heart, an expression of the unifying principle of existence. Its purpose is to enable us to live fully in the pre- sent. Both practicing and receiving Breema help create harmony and balance between your mind, feelings, and body, and in your relationship to yourself, to others, and to all life.


We dream of loving and being loved. Yet we often deny this need for love, support, and nur- turing from another, even when we’re in a com- mitted relationship. We struggle to find our true selves but shut our hearts down. However, emo- tions and needs that we suppress do not go away – they stay inside our bodies and psyches, affect- ing health and wellbeing.


In this workshop we will learn what keeps us alone and apart, how we sabotage new begin- nings, and how to be present in the moment with another. We will find new ways to commu- nicate and make contact with each other in respectful, non-threatening ways. While many of us have been taught to see touch with a man as sexual and nothing more, we will learn how the power of touch can initiate emotional and physical healing. Most of all, we will share our
