I would say that what has defined and continues to define my life is an eclectic mix of aptitudes and varied interests, together with a keen ability to synthesize and harmonize these elements in a coherent approach. I could give another name to this ability to synthesize and harmonize: transcendence.


I have devoted and continue to devote a part of my life to intellectual, literary and linguistic pursuits, as I have studied languages, linguistics, and literature, and I have been a professional translator for the last 35 years. Currently, I only translate books that concern precisely this subject of transcendence, for various Quebec and French editors.


And then there is the world of relationships and business, the field of action. Here, after my studies in group leadership and public relations, I devoted myself to the teaching of French and Chi kung, the practice of massage and the communications business. In particular, for ten years I was the owner of a Canadian company working in written communications and translation.


To successfully manage so many activities, you need to be in good health, be mentally alert and have a strong body. In this central aspect of my life, I have invested in my physical, energetic and spiritual well-being, as well as in helping others to do the same. My professional trainings in shiatsu, acupuncture, traditional Thai massage, Weight-Loss and medical Chi Kung, lightpuncture and healing Chi Kung with Mantak Chia (certified instructor) represent the physical and energetic side of my life, that continues to grow in importance. To go even further in this direction of transcendence, I pursued esoteric "studies" in India, where I participated in a school of mysticism (Poona) and acquired numerous tools in the field of energy.


And last but not least is my interest in creativity which expresses itself in various forms: many years of dance that I continue to develop, sculpture, drawing, photography, fashion design, landscaping, and cooking.


And here we return to transcendence, since all these activities bring me back to the present, to my centre and to the light within, to the observer, the witness, and consciousness.
