Breema, a dynamic and playful interoceptive movement practice will be used to potentiate body-mind connection as a catalyst for self-care and transformation in the therapeutic relationship. Its commonsense wisdom guides the practitioner to support the body’s instinctive healing energy, nurturing vitality instead of focusing on symptoms of illness or imbalance.
Breema's exercises use nurturing touch, tension-relieving stretches, and rhythmic movements to foster physical, mental, and emotional balance. Issues including compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, stress, and burnout are mitigated, while empathy, acceptance, non-judgment, and an atmosphere of aliveness are nurtured.
In this 2-hour evening workshop, emphasis will be placed on the experience of the practitioner by focusing on individual and partner movements as well as self-care exercises. We will explore the principles underlying this practice: No Judgment, Body Comfortable, Mutual Support, and No Force, to discover how they can foster a relaxed and openhearted relationship with life. No prior experience necessary. Come prepared to relax and enjoy!
