Daily Meditation 11 – 15 March 2024

Sophie Boyer

These sessions are led by Sophie Boyer.

Start Time: Monday – Friday, 7am GMT (London) / 8am CET (Paris). 60-minute live session.

To Be on the Road Without Leaving Home

Zen Master Hakuin reveals an apparent tension between movement and stillness in this statement.

What may the road refer to? What is called home?

Sophie Boyer will lead our Daily Meditations this week, inviting us to engage with this paradoxical dynamic. We’ll discover that stability and ground can become more spacious in every situation, every experience, and every condition. How it is possible to discover, or re-discover, home … endlessly.

Sophie Boyer

Sophie was born in France. She started practicing Buddhist meditation in 2000 during her time providing nursing care. After 10 years spent in hospices surrounded by the theme of aging, sickness and death, she became more interested in exploring long silent meditation retreats in Europe, and in the United States (Gaia House, Insight Mediation Society, Forest Refuge). She spent over 2 years in Asia (Myanmar) as a Buddhist nun. She later disrobed in 2013.

Sophie completed the Dharma Teacher Training at the Bodhi College (UK) and has been trained to teach the MBCAS program (mindfulness based cognitive approach for seniors).

Sophie lives on the French border, near to Geneva, where she teaches meditation classes in the oncology ward of a hospital. She mainly teaches retreats in France and is part of the Terre d’Eveil teacher council. She is very interested in bringing people and wildlife together in intimate connection through contemplative practice and retreats in nature. Click here to learn more about Sophie Boyer.
