In our modern age of more and faster, Breema guides us to simplify, to let go of extra, to move without hurry, to participate more fully, to touch without force, and to interact less judgmentally. The first step of bringing body and mind together conserves a tremendous amount of energy typically wasted in reacting to life events. When our feelings enter into the body-mind connection, our three centers function in harmony. The mutual support among the three centers – mental, emotional, and physical – increases vitality and gives our life direction greater clarity and focus. This is how we move from criticism toward acceptance, from diversity toward unity, from reactivity to receptivity, and from past and future to the taste of the present moment.
Using Breema’s Nine Principles of Harmony as a framework for study, this class presents an introduction Breema’s practical philosophy of purposeful living.
