Center's philosophy

We are living a time where the inner dimension of our existence is getting more and more important for a lot of us. Thanks to this, we do have now a lot of books and teaching on a whole range of psychic and spiritual practices, some of them very ancient and others more recent.

We see as well that a lot of us have a growing awareness of the diversity of humankind and the individuation process, meaning the understanding that every one of us is unique without denying our belonging to a greater whole. This leads us to seek and to develop a life line based on our own truth, taking both from what we learn outside (doctrines and teachings) and inside (personal experiences).

In this context, the idea was to create a center for inner practices based on encouraging everyone to develop their own practice by experimenting, reading, learning and sharing with others, rather than following a unique teaching with a specific guideline.


Who is this center for?

This center is open to everyone interested in the inner life and tolerant towards the diversity of practices and beliefs (cf. ethical code).

Who is running this center?

Pierre-Yves

My name is Pierre-Yves Vannay, I grew up in Valais (Switzerland), completed a degree at the EPFL and after working for a decade I decided to dedicate myself to creating and running this center, which opened in September 2018.

I am very interested in personal development, psychology, philosophy, religions, inner life and spirituality. I discovered meditation through learning yoga in India, I then further develop my meditation practice through techniques learned in several schools in Switzerland and England. I manage the center and run several group activities.
