Dharma.house was founded in 2016, as a complementary offer to traditional meditation centres. Our mission is to inspire, and show by example that it is possible to create, another way of life, free from ordinary pettiness, free from complaining about our circumstances and free from mental rigidity.

I had a fantastic weekend with Fariyal and Denis. Fariyal was a wonderful and warm host, and Denis is an incredible teacher. Although I'm not a novice to meditation, I could appreciate how penetrable his teachings are for beginners, and for me, it brought my (still very beginner) meditation to the next level. Moreover, I have found his tips on daily mindfulness so applicable in my day to day life, which I've applied ever since. Thank you!!

My experience at Dharma House was a well balanced introduction to basic meditation in the Buddhist tradition. The approach was brilliant, covering not only how to meditate, but also why, followed by clear living examples of how to apply the benefits in every day life. The atmosphere was supportive and joyful. Although some of the practice was challenging, it was never overwhelming. The location is superb in terms of accomodations, view, peace and quiet, simple yet comfortable enough for all basic needs.

Denis and Fariyal have created the perfect home for a meditation retreat, the teachings were completely accessible and easy to pick up and easily applied to our day to day routine. We were looked after so well with much love, patience and beautifully home cooked meals. A real gem.

As someone who came to the retreat with no previous experience of meditation but nonetheless had reservations about the potential benefits, it was, and whilst not trying to sound trite, genuinely life changing, allowing me to have some precious mind space and to appreciate the present.

I visited Dharma House for a 2 day training retreat. The building itself is impressive and stylish with excellent amenities in a spectacular location outside Lyon. Denis and Fariyal were very hospitable and made me feel at home from the start. Regarding the training itself, I am very pleased with the quality of both content and delivery. I am applying what I learned and it makes a real difference to my daily life. Overall: Highly recommended and phenomenal value for money.

As a beginner to meditation I enjoyed the different techniques taught and thought the length of the sessions were just right. The surroundings, hospitality and house itself are clearly inspiration enough to relax and get away from the stresses of daily life.

Une belle découverte de la méditation, intense tant au niveau physique que mentale. J'ai des outils afin de faire face aux aléas de la vie et mieux me comprendre moi-même et les autres. Les bénéfices et l'impact de la méditation sur ma vie est au delà de toute attente. Merci

Dans un cadre privilégié — maison et alentours — ma retraite à D.H a été un moment exceptionnel. Dans un esprit remarquable d'hospitalité et de bienveillance, Denis et Fariyal œuvrent à la qualité de tous les moments. Grâce aux enseignements théoriques mais aussi pratiques et personnalisés, j'ai pu rendre cohérentes et chargées de sens les quelques notions que j'avais, je continuerai ce cheminement. Venez à D.H.

5☆ Un week-end très intense, très riche en enseignements, en pratiques, sur « la pleine conscience au quotidien. » Un endroit calme comme on en trouve rarement de nos jours, idéal pour se ressourcer et se rencentrer. Merci à vous 2.
