The Nine Principles of Harmony are a unique element of practicing and receiving Breema. They are at the foundation of what makes Breema distinct from other similar forms of bodywork. Yet, these principles are universal and can be applied to other forms of bodywork, or any activity in life.
When we look at the body not as something separate, but as an aspect of a unified whole, there is no place for discomfort.
To express our true nature, nothing extra is needed.
Firmness and Gentleness
Real firmness is always gentle. Real gentleness is always firm. When we are present, we naturally manifest firmness and gentleness simultaneously.
The most natural way of moving and living is with full participation. Full participation is possible when body, mind, and feelings are united in a common aim.
The more our Being participates, the more we are able to support life and recognize that Existence supports us. Giving and receiving support take place simultaneously.
The atmosphere of nonjudgment gives us a taste of acceptance of ourselves as we are in the moment. When we come to the present, we are free from judgment.
Single Moment/Single Activity
Each moment is new, fresh, totally alive. Each moment is an expression of our true nature, complete by itself.
No Hurry/No Pause
In the natural rhythm of life energy, there is no hurry and no pause.
When we let go of assumptions of separation, we let go of force.
