To enjoy the benefits of the proposed meditations, you should be experienced in a meditative practice (regardless of its origin) and be interested in the existential and spiritual dimensions of meditation.
The practice of Full Presence Meditation points to a more embodied humanity were human beings becomes more present to themselves, to others and to the world. It mobilizes what is greatest in human beings.Danis Bois
Origin of the Project
I eventually recognised that I was a free agent in the world of spirituality, a rebel who rejects the rules, dogmas and various constraints that lead to the grail. To spirituality I prefer philosophy which seems more promising in terms of its essence, whilst I make a distinction between intellectual philosophy and field philosophy, which can be integrated into daily life.
We feel that Human Nature is probably more beautiful and much better than that which appears to be. It is for each human being to stand up in order to rise up and thus assume the responsibility for the humanity which we each carry within and which carries us, consciously or unconsciously.Danis Bois
After many visits to India over 40 years, where he met Indian masters and Buddhists, Danis Bois has ceaselessly taught meditation in all of the sectors of his active life (academic, professional and personal development). For many years, the people who practice his Full-Presence Meditation, have asked him repeatedly to meditate regularly under his guidance. Until recently, Danis Bois had declined this proposal, thinking that the important thing in meditation was to gain autonomy in one’s existential and spiritual journey.
Following these requests and responding to people’s isolation, he decided to lead videoconference meditations through virtual classes for people from all continents who regularly follow his work. Given the enthusiasm and effectiveness revealed by the testimonies of participants, he agreed to continue and to further establish the live meditations regularly through videoconferencing, one hour per week.
Scientific study on the positive effects of Full-Presence Meditation® on the experience of confinement linked to the COVID-19 pandemic
This study was carried out by Dr Isabelle Bertrand and Dr Christian Courraud. During the first period of confinement, 76 people participated in (on average) 12 Full-Presence meditations, at the rate of one meditation every 3 days. The results of a questionnaire on the experience of the confinement are as follows: 84% of participants mentioned an improvement in their experience of the absence of social contact and 95% experienced an increase in the pleasure of being with themselves. Participants reported a feeling of inner calm (99%), more positive thoughts (93%), confidence in the future (87%), better sleep (80%) and greater vitality (78%). The findings of this survey were presented at the ICEPS 2020 Congress
Free access to a collective, remote guided meditation on the theme :
“The channels of transmission in Full-Presence Meditation®”.
Depending on the experience of the meditators, the moments of silence are more or less long and the instructions range from the most simple to the most subtle.
With the use of the channels of transmission, the geographical distance between the facilitator and the participants does not hinder the creation of a dynamic relationship between all.
This 20-minute meditation is representative of the atmosphere generated during meditations guided via videoconferences.
