To have a free mind, an open heart, with the senses alive no matter what the circumstances—this is what the Buddhist path proposes. It’s up to you to discover if it’s possible. In this retreat the search for happiness involves calming the mind and developing clarity, receptivity and inner stability.

This retreat will be held in French, with the possibility of having an individual meeting with the teacher in English if needed.
