Training Staff at a Buddhist Retreat Center in France

In 2015, Greg Heffron trained the staff at Dechen Choling Buddhist Retreat Center near Limoges, France. This one-day version of “The Power of Peacemaking” explored Susan Gillis Chapman’s teachings on The Four Stages of Heartless Conversation and how to unlock each frozen stage. The training was met with genuine enthusiasm, leading to an invite back for a 2-day version of “Creating Emotional Green Zones,” which Greg taught in November 2016.
