WOW! A whole month gone and it has been a tumultuous one!

While I recently failed abysmally at being a back-up care-giver in the home of children with Sensory Processing Disorder, I have moved on. Wrestling with the return to art-making!

Reflecting back over my brief encounters, I know strong intuition crossed my path with this incredible family for many reasons. Reasons that that keep me moving toward my own goals. Goals that initially combine art with Somatics until I make enough credible visual/kinesthetic "noise," and accrue experience enough to combine together and begin the formation of a competent intuitive voice, attract resources that can and will help me put all combined to that point with education, to earn my degree in Somatic Psychology.

This is my field- body awareness, to exchange with the world and earn my daily bread, where the world is "conscious enough".

What more can I say until I know how?

A sudden flash of inspiration hits me! I am dancing my way to optimal health in the body/mind during this big transition time_ just the right resources are already appearing on the horizon! WOW! April, a whole new month! Stay tuned...

I have also wanted to reconnect with Breema recently. No better way than to start with the nine basic principles. Here they are:

The Nine Principles of Breema

Body Comfortable
When we look at the body, not as something separate, but as an aspect of a unified whole, there is no place for discomfort.

No Extra
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.

Full Participation
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.

Mutual Support
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.

No Judgment
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.

No Force
When we let go of assumptions of separation, we let go of force.
