While he is clearly not Theravadan, Thich Nhat Hanh lives in France. He may be a "local" resource available to you. His monastary is Plum Village. He practices Vietnamese Zen. Some criticize him for emphasizing bare mindfulness, saying he has a lack of insight. He seems pretty wise to me, though.

Thanx for your reply Buckwheat

Well? there's a place in Paris where i'll go to pratice samatha/vipassana bhavana nearly even if i'll do at home every day.

I know TNH who is living in south of France but like you said is a zen "master" and i don't really like his way of teaching.
French theravada seekers are aware that ressources are deficients in France ... but it's like that !

http://www.centrebouddhique.net/ - Sri Lankan, near le Bourget.

http://www.refugebouddhique.com/ - I think this is Forest Tradition, located in the south near Eguilles.

Welcome Benoit!

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

Hello.

I remember visiting a monastery somewhere in the middle of a large park in Paris a few years back. I'm afraid I can't remember specifically where though, and it may have already been mentioned.
