I am off to another workshop this weekend. This time, my favorite course of study, Breema.
As a Massage Therapist I like this practice because it is something I can apply in a very practical way for myself. (Self Care). It also has a bodywork component that I can, in turn, offer to others. (Client Care).
Self Breema offers the opportunity to use movement that helps me connect with myself. Present in mind and body I move through the series of particular sequences. There are principles that go with Breema, such as Mutual Support, No Judgement, Full Participation and several others. These principles help me to direct my thoughts to the present moment. The present moment is where all of the good stuff happens. Breema bodywork is one of the most nourishing modalities that I have ever received. I remember early on, during a session, being amazed by the idea that this is what my (fill in the blank body part) feels like when picked up and gently moved from this position to another! How often are we present with our movements as we go through our daily lives? I find it delightful when I can be in this moment with both my body and my mind.
