The full interview from the European Spiritual Masters Download.
Francis is a very experienced teacher, and has a certain elegance and graceful clarity in the message that he passes on. He often returns to the fact that there is only one consciousness, and that we are that. He conveys this with a lovely spontaneity, and humorous, profound insights.
A graduate of the École Polytechnique in Paris, Francis managed missile tests for the French armed forces then ceased all weapon related activities after discovering the writings of J.Krishnamurti. This discovery triggered an intense quest for reality that found its resolution shortly after his 1975 encounter with his spiritual teacher, Jean Klein. His close association with his guru lasted until Jean Klein’s death in 1998. Francis now lives in California and travels worldwide, transmitting the ancient teaching of nonduality, the common ground of Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism, Zen, Taoism and Sufism.
