  • Our Self-Imposed Prison by Esther Veltheim

    If you have taken a BreakThrough class you might have experienced the power of exercises that shed light on the habit of assuming. For those of you unfamiliar with BreakThrough, here is a simple exercise to try for yourself: Keeping a note pad on hand, for half an hour make a note, maybe with numbers or ticks, each time you realize you have made an assumption. The first time I did this exercise and tallied my number of assumptions, the result was horrifying. At the same time, I was struck by the extraordinary potential of such a simple act of observing.

  • IBA web site change by IBA

    Today, June 5th, we have made a change to the web site that we hope you like.
    As I am sure you know, our web site contains a lot of useful information but it is sometimes "hard to see the forest for the trees". This change centralizes all your pertinent membership activity on one page e.g. membership overview, course and order summary, with links to the other pertinent pages should you desire the details.
    We hope you find this change useful.

  • My BreakThrough Experience by Katherine Sellery

    I didn't really know what I was getting into when I went to my first Breakthrough course. Now that I have attended the class 12 times I can still say each and every time I never know what I am getting into! I LOVE BreakThrough, it's like getting a deep tissue massage from the inside out.

  • Integrity by Isabel Welch

    I want to share my experience of Integrity during BreakThrough Step 3, my understanding of the Integration, the you in me, the me in myself, and both in Self. During the process of Step 3, I breathe and breathe, like during the contractions in labor, only me can push! First I am like the barking dog-defending my precious belief- the blame is out, then I realized that the behaviors are in me, and I start blaming myself. The instructor requesting to st.....

  • Candles by Tim Halll

    The other day I was in the dark. The room was pitch black and I was tripping over everything and quite miserable. I eventually figured out that if I sat still and did nothing with myself that I would incur no further injury nor traumas. It didn't take long to realize that that was no way to get by. At about the time I resolved to find a better way, I came across a candle and was fortunate to have a technique to light the candle. I now sat in a dimly lit room

  • Comparison: Not Being Good Enough by Terryann Nikides

    We all have a tendency to compare ourselves to others. We think that by using people we admire in some way as a standard, we will improve who we are, make ourselves better people. We think we can be better by morphing ourselves into something we can see in the mirror, someone stronger, better looking, smarter, more interesting, more focused, someone who has more money and a better job.

  • Ending The War- BreakThrough for Couples. by Blake Miller & Brenda Miller, Senior BreakThrough Instructor

    One day, many years ago, I was walking along a street when I passed a young man. As I looked into his eyes I had the strongest feeling that this was the man I was going to marry. This was a bit odd because, on that very day, within hours, I was to be wed to my high school....

  • Are We Really Different? by Terryann Nikides

    Each time I travel to a new country I am filled with the sensual pleasures of new languages, the smells in the streets, the brilliant sights and sounds. Everyone looks and dresses differently. Unabashedly, Brazilians expose cleavages and bundas (their behinds) but won't be seen naked. The East Indians do not expose their ankles, but their midriffs are displayed. Tibetans eat meat, but Hindus do not. The Greeks swing their heads down and up to mean no and left....

  • BreakThrough is Beautifully Nurturing by Brenda Miller

    In a difficult-to-see way, BreakThrough is the most nurturing thing I've done for myself in my life. You may find other ways that suit you better, or maybe BreakThrough isn't for you right now, or ever.

  • Conflict by Esther Veltheim

    In every conflict we experience, elements of defensiveness and betrayal are always present. Regardless of what the conflict might seem to be about, the minute we over-react it is always because a deep-seated, unconscious belief is being betrayed.
