ADVAITA - Paris Pages

This Meetup group is about self realization, enlightenment, yoga, meditation, awakening, and the teachings of Francis Lucille, a spiritual teacher in the tradition of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality).

About Francis Lucille:

A long time disciple of Jean Klein whom he met in 1975, he was a friend of Robert Linssen, Wolter Keers, Yvan Amar, William Samuel and Robert Adams. He was also influenced by J. Krishnamurti, Krishna Menon and Wei Wu Wei whom he knew personally. Many contemporary advaita teachers have attended his teaching events.

Francis transmits the ancient teaching of nonduality, the common ground of Advaita Vedanta, Ch'an Buddhism, Zen,Taoism and Sufism.

Format of the meetings

Each meeting is comprised of two sessions, one formal, the other informal.

1. Formal session (no less than 40 minutes)
It starts with a silent meditation (no less than 15 minutes) followed with some teachings by Francis (mostly a video). If a video is not available, listening to Francis' CDs or reading excerpts from his books is a possible alternative.

2. Informal session
This part is an exercise in spontaneity. It will evolve out of the perfume generated by the formal part. It is simply a meeting among friends. Total freedom is the rule. The group can decide to keep watching the video, or to talk about it, or about a book, or a teaching, or to talk about any topic, serious or not, to watch an entertaining movie, to tell jokes, to listen to music, etc…
The goal of this meeting is to enjoy the perfume of Presence and of friendship, rather than to loose oneself in sterile controversies.
If an unresolved question arises during the meeting, the event organizer can present it directly to Francis. It will be answered with top priority on the mailing list of the Meetup group ADVAITA and on the Advaita Channel.
