    4/12 - 4/14 at Hummingbird Valley Retreat Center in Santa Cruz! 

    Firmness and Gentleness
    The principle of Firmness and Gentleness teaches us to have the right balance of activity and receptivity in every moment. It supports us to establish a good relationship between our mind and feelings.

    Experience a new level of aliveness and comfort in the nourishing atmosphere of a Breema weekend workshop. As body, mind, and feelings begin to function in harmony with each other, you are revitalized, and the way you think, feel, and move emanates harmony. Each weekend consists of four modular workshops, all of them unique in content.

    In each workshop, we learn and practice a select repertoire of Breema bodywork sequences and Self-Breema exercises, which are dynamic expressions of the Nine Principles of Harmony. These universal principles are fundamental elements of Breema’s profound philosophy, and applying them as we practice prepares us to use them in our daily lives.

    These workshops are down-to-earth and practical. We learn by direct experience of giving and receiving the bodywork and doing the exercises. Breema offers perspectives and experiences that can become the foundation of a profound self-understanding, with the potential to have a transformative effect on one’s life. Succinctly put, by studying Breema you discover yourself.

    The workshops offer important support for bodyworkers, as well as for practitioners in the fields of mental, physical, and emotional health, but anyone with an interest in finding more meaning and fulfillment will find them invaluable.

    You can participate in the entire weekend, or attend just one or more of the four workshops. Pre-registration is recommended. Call or email the Breema Center for more information. 

    CE is available for massage therapists and bodyworkers, nurses, LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, and LEPs. $10 fee for processing

    These Weekend Workshops count as part of the 12-Month Breema Practitioner Course.

    Alexandra Johnson does Breema at Hummingbird Valley Retreat Center

  • Friday, April 12, 2024 7:00 PM | Alexandra Johnson

    Friday, April 12th from 7-8:30pm at Hummingbird Valley Retreat Center in Santa Cruz! 

    This workshop is especially suited to those who have little or no prior experience with Breema (though everyone can benefit). In a nurturing, nonjudgmental atmosphere, we will practice simple Breema bodywork sequences, cover all the basic elements, and discover how to work with the Nine Principles of Harmony while giving and receiving. We will also look at incorporating Breema into our busy lives, and extending the benefit of giving and receiving into our everyday activities.

    Breema supports the body’s vitality, increases the availability of the mind, and nurtures our true feelings. The movements range from energetic and playful to calm and relaxing. Practicing Breema provides a way to balance whatever state we find ourselves in. The practice can help us overcome lethargy by increasing our energy, or relieve stress by releasing tension.

    On a more essential level, as our body, mind, and feelings work together with the aim of participating fully in the movements, we may experience a deep sense of being present, a new way of relating to ourselves and everything around us, and a glimpse of the potential and purpose of being human.
