Bastien Ferrier is deeply interested in understanding the mind in order to cope better with all of life’s challenges. He has been pursuing this interest for many years through extensive study and practice. Having played tennis at a high national level, he realized that the base for any success and high performance is a well-functioning and efficient mind.
When Bastien Ferrier was 18 years old, he met Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche – an important step in Bastien’s conquest of trying to understand the mind. Because of this fortuitous meeting, Bastien’s interest in all teachings of Tibetan Buddhism gradually increased and he slowly discovered that it is possible to improve our minds if we have the right methods and the right wisdoms.
Since then, Bastien has received many teachings, participated in numerous retreats, deepened his practice, and kept a close connection with Tulku Lobsang. This enabled him to become a certified teacher in several methods that are mainly connected with Tantrayana Buddhism and Tulku Lobsang, such as Lu Jong, Tog Chöd, Tsa Lung and Mindfulness.
During the same period of time, Bastien also studied law and became a Swiss lawyer. In his professional career, he has accumulated experience working as a lawyer, as a project manager in a company in the Swiss luxury watch industry, and for the federal administration of Switzerland. He also successfully completed a coaching education recognized by the international coaching federation (ICF). These experiences showed Bastien the different challenges connected to various working fields and how the practices that he learned could be beneficial to many people on the level of the body and mind. Thus he was inspired to help share these methods with the business world.
Bastien Ferrier is honored to share his deep conviction and enthusiasm for Tulku Lobsang’s program “Leading By Living Your Full Potential” with the business world. May many benefit from it.
