Michel Pascal calls on his experience living in Kopan Monastery in the Himalayas, as well as his close relationship and dedicated study of 15 years under renowned Buddhist master Chepa Dorje Rinpoche, now deceased. Chepa Dorjé Rinpoche was recognized by Horshul Kyenchok Salt, Rongta Kentchen Rinpoche and Kyabje Jigme Puntsok, as the emanation of both Jigme Lingpa, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and Trongteu Chepa Dorje. As master of the Dzogchen, he belongs to the Longchen Nyingthig line of the Nyingmapa school of Tibetan Buddhism, founded in the 8th century by Padmasambhava. As his close disciple Pascal studied the shamanistic Nyingmapa Tibetan Buddhist tradition. During his time in living in Kopan monastery he had the intuition that there needed to be a bridge between the high masters of Buddhism and modern society. For over 15 years Michel has been adapting these traditional teachings and practices for students around the world.

Michel is also the disciple of Jean Yves Leloup

Jean-Yves Leloup, an Orthodox theologian, is well known in Europe, North and South America as a popular author on spirituality and psychology. He is the founder of the Institute of Other Civilization Studies and the International College of Therapists. He has written more than fifty books and has also translated and commented the gospels of Thomas, Miriam of Magdala, Philip and John.

JeanYves Leloup was ermite at Mont Athos in Greece and he has transmitted to Michel the Meditation Hesychia 

Hesychasm is a mystical tradition of contemplative prayer in the Eastern Orthodox Church. Based on Christ’s injunction in the Gospel of Matthew that “when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray”,[1] hesychasm in tradition has been the process of retiring inward by ceasing to register the senses, in order to achieve an experiential knowledge of God (see theoria).
