Level 1: Finding your Happy, an introduction to the 16 Guidelines in France

  • Institute Vajrayogini Lieu dit Clauzade 81500 Marzens France (map)

The 16 Guidelines workshop provides practical tools for a more meaningful, fulfilled life. The idea is simple: to change the way we experience the world, we transform the way we think, act, and relate to others to find meaning.

What to expect

This 2-day Level 1 will explore key attitudes for developing a mindful culture in our family and community, in education, healthcare, or business. The focus will be on mindfulness, enquiry and ethics using the 16 Guidelines (16G) which provide a framework for reflecting on the ways we think, speak, act and find meaning in life.

Learn how to:

·Increase emotional resilience and confidence

·Improve relationships

·Achieve a greater sense of well-being and purpose

Who is it for?

This retreat is suitable for people of all faiths and cultural traditions. It will incorporate a Level 1: Introduction to the 16G so is suited for those new to the 16G as well as anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of them or for those intending to become accredited 16G trainers.


Mabel Odessey - Using the guidelines on a dally or weekly basis I have experienced how they transform my life; creating a more peaceful happier inner world effects all those I encounter. Like a small pebble thrown into a still lake, the ripples spread out over a huge area. Waking up, nurturing compassion, kindness and universal responsibility that is within each human being feels like an immensely worthwhile thing to do.

Co-facilitation with Lorena Adame, experienced mindfulness practitioner and yoga teacher and trained on the level 3 of the 16 Guidelines.
