What we're about

Watch the webcasts of Francis Lucille, and ask live your questions on non-duality, happiness, meditation, etc...

Francis, a long time friend and student of Jean Klein, is a spiritual teacher of the Advaita Vedanta tradition. His teaching is not "Neo Advaita" but traditional Advaita, which means that the experience of our true nature has been transmitted from generation to generation by a lineage of sages.

Francis' master, Jean Klein, met his guru in India in the early Fifties and stayed and studied with him for several years. He later studied the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism with Dibianandapuri and of Hatha Yoga with the famous teacher Krishnamacharya. Jean Klein was an Acharya, meaning a guru who, having realized the common ground of all spiritual teachings, can teach according to many traditions with equal ease. He loved the humor of the Zen patriarchs, the poetry of Rumi and of the Sufi tradition, and the sweetness of Meister Eckhart's Christian expression of the Absolute. His teachings reflected his love for art and music, addressing the needs of a demanding intellect while focusing to a large extent on the perceptual and sensorial aspect of our experience.

Francis' teachings reflect those of his guru: appreciation for humor, art, music, and poetry, intellectual rigor with a "personal" twist due to his training in Mathematics and Physics, emphasis on the body and its feelings. There are meditation and yoga sessions inspired by the Tantric and Hatha Yoga traditions in addition to the traditional Advaitic dialogues. Music concerts, often featuring Francis as a performer, are also included in the program of the retreats.

You may register here for the webinars and webcasts and for the retreats with Francis. We are making sure Truth lovers with financial hardship can have access to the teachings by offering them scholarships (free spots). Donations are of course welcome and necessary to cover the expenses.

There are also 8 week long retreats every year at Laura and Francis' home in Temecula, California, and retreats in Tampa (Florida), Orlando (Florida), Paris (France), Barcelona (Spain), Munich (Germany) and at the Omega Center (upstate New-York).

ADVAITA is an eclectic group of friends interested in meditation, yoga, enlightenment, self realization, non duality teachings (Advaita Vedanta, Zen Buddhism, Sufism, Taoism).

Diverse age groups and professions are represented: artists, musicians, mathematicians, physicists, engineers, physicians, dentists, yoga teachers, therapists, business owners, home makers, retirees, students etc.

Se celebrarán dos retiros con Francis Lucille en Barcelona
- Del 27 de Junio al 3 de Julio, en francés e inglés. A través de auriculares individuales se facilitará traducción simultánea al español.
- Del 3 al 9 de Julio, en español e inglés.
En ambos encuentros nos reuniremos - meditación, consciencia corporal y diálogos - por la tarde, excepto el último día en que el satsang tendrá lugar por la mañana

El lugar es la Casa de Espiritualidad San Felipe Neri, una hermosa casa modernista con jardín, muy tranquila a pesar de estar a 10 minutos en metro del mismo centro de Barcelona. El acceso con transporte público es muy sencillo al tener una salida de metro - Tres Torres - muy cercana.

Es muy recomendable traer una esterilla o una manta puesto que el suelo es de baldosa y no se permite sacar mantas de las habitaciones.

Las habitaciones están bloqueadas hasta el día 27 de Abril. Más allá de esas fechas las habitaciones no reservadas se liberarán y podría no haber disponibilidad.

ENSEÑANZA

Supone $750 por semana que se abonarán directamente a Francis a través de su página web.

ALOJAMIENTO Y COMIDA

Las habitaciones son muy humildes y su precio está en consonancia con ello, en ese sentido son similares a las de L´Enclos Rey en París.
El coste de las habitaciones individuales va de los 395 a los 465 euros por retiro. Esto incluye las comidas - desayuno, comida y cena - que son vegetarianas, así como el importe de la sala.
Las habitaciones dobles tienen un importe entre 760 € y 850 euros en las mismas condiciones.

Aquellos que no se alojen en la casa abonarán el primer día de retiro en metálico los 60 € correspondientes a los gastos de sala.
Hay un pequeño número de plazas para comer reservado a aquellos que no se alojen en la casa. La reserva en este caso ha de formalizarse con al menos 15 días de anticipación al comienzo del retiro.

Cualquier alergia o intolerancia alimentaria puede ser atendida, es necesario notificarlo con la reserva.
