Instructors: Alexandra Johnson and Alexis Mulhauser
Special guests Jon Schreiber, DC, director of the Breema Center, Matthew Tousignant, and Kevin Johnson
The experience of parenting can be used as a catalyst for personal growth. Our interactions with our partners and children can help us to learn more about ourselves and how we relate to others. Breema and the Nine Principles of Harmony support us to approach parenting with willingness, offering tools like No Force, Firmness and Gentleness, and Mutual Support. With them, we can meet children in any stage of their development with open-heartedness and an interest in increasing harmony in relationship to them. The Nine Principles also show us the value of self-acceptance when the journey is challenging.
Join Alexis Mulhauser and Alexandra Johnson, with special guests Dr. Jon Schreiber, Matthew Tousignant, and Kevin Johnson, to explore how we can come to a more balanced and open posture toward our families and ourselves. We will learn self-care exercises that can bring body and mind together at any point in the day, supporting greater connection within ourselves and in each relationship.
