"Teaching : a transmission from heart to heart"

My Bio

I started practicing meditation in a "secular" setting at the age of 11 years old in Paris, France.   I have lived twenty years in the Amazon forest region and in the Caribbean in my early adulthood, working as a medical doctor and epidemiologist. I have been practicing meditation in a regular basis having as a main meditation teacher, Nature. I completed my personal practice attending silent retreat and benefited from deep teachings ;

In 2014, I  decided to engage my self in transmission to share what I learned and started the teacher path since then.

Know I live, work and teach in Paris, France
