A few weeks ago, I flew to the other side of the world. Mexico, Brazil, names that make you dream…
I have visited different regions:
– Quérétaro, Mexico City, Oaxaca, Mexico
– Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
But the purpose of this trip to Latin America was not tourism. Rather to present the practice of zazen (zen meditation) and that of inner silence to the general public. So I walked the streets, without a pilgrim’s ...
With the Mexican media “Reporte Indigo” we shot different videos and interviews. Some of them took place during the Hay Festival in Quérétaro, during the outdoor meditation workshops I led. Others in a beautiful park in central Mexico City, surrounded by mischievous squirrels.

It was an amazing experience: speaking aloud the words that appeared in my head when I ...
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the founder of the site www.excellencereporter.com to record a video. The theme immediately challenged me “What is the meaning of life?

Zen Meditation Retreat – Summer 2018 – Let’s meet and practice together!
Every summer I go to the Gendronnière Zen Temple ( Google Map) to participate in meditation retreats.
