After working for a few years as a consultant at the United Nations, I changed direction in 1998 following a spontaneous awakening and the experience of illumination. I then traveled, learned yoga, lived 13 years in India, in Tiruvannamalai. I met people from all walks of life, and above all, I "met" myself.
Driven by my passion for personal development and enriched by an experience of more than twenty years in the spiritual field, I facilitate the practice of self-inquiry and self-awareness.
For many years my commitment has been to: facilitate the openness of the body/mind through hatha yoga classes and satsang (group talks) demystify spirituality in order to retrieve the natural state facilitate the acceptance of humanity within invite to look for authenticity instead of perfection
Extract from the book - The Source: Initiation into Love and Freedom
"In 1998 my interests and occupations were not spiritual. I had not yet started doing yoga, I had not read any spiritual books and I did not subscribe to any religion or follow any spiritual teacher. I was leading an ordinary life which could be defined as an active and happy one. One day, I heard from within a loud Stop! I listened to this cry and I stopped everything in order to take time to do nothing, take walks in nature and be alone with myself. It was then that numerous dreams assailed me. In one of these dreams, a group of sages showed me some books. They were telling me that I ought to understand; but understand what exactly? An unexpected and incredible inner fire made me pounce upon a spiritual book to try to understand the meaning of life. I skimmed over the sentences at a mad speed. I searched for words which would speak to me, words which I could feel were truthful. It was not so much my reading but rather the fire in me and a painting on my wall that suddenly opened my eyes and allowed me to understand and realise what my true nature is. This painting was completely black and was called Nothing. In the centre, a space was cut out of the canvas, so one could see right through. It turned out to be a revelation. Everything became so clear. I understood that as long as we do not know our true nature, we are like the blackness of the painting, prisoners of our ignorance. When we start to clearly see within ourselves, a space opens out, which allows us to see through and realise who we really are.
Like this space, our true nature is independent of everything even though everything manifests in it. The world changes but this space is always the same and will remain the same, eternally. The more we clearly see within ourselves, the more ignorance diminishes. The inner space grows. When there is clarity, darkness disappears. Only the frame remains. This frame, which is symbolically the body, will pass away, but the space remains ever present. Who we truly are never dies."
