The Road to Peace and Happiness

Lisa guides meditations and teaches buddha-dharma (a philosophy open to people of all races, religions, nationalities, genders) in both French and English from her home in Marseille. If you are interested in joining, please contact Lisa at for more information.

 I find that self-realisation happens equally when living abroad or when studying and practicing buddha-dharma.

In my twenties I became intrigued with Buddhism as a philosophy toward becoming aware of how oneself perceives and behaves in the world. I was living in Maine at the time, but had already traveled and lived in many foreign cultures. Ten years later, in 2008, I heard Qapel Doug Duncan speak. He is meditation and dharma teacher who founded Clear Sky Center, BC. I immediately knew I had to meet him and that he would become my teacher.  Since then, I have participated in many meditation retreats, among them, at Clear Sky and IMS in Barre, Massachusetts. When I moved to France it was a blessing to find fellow sangha members that follow Qapel and his teaching partner, Catherine Pawasarat Sensei. With support from our Dharma Europe group through regular meetings, I started teaching dharma and meditation in Marseille and online in both English and French. I love to combine my experience living in places like West Africa, Brazil, and elsewhere with my dharma teachings. Aside from that, I love yoga and the sea.
