When, at the age of thirteen, his uncle asked him what he wanted to do later, Bruno Lallement answered him just as curtly: " I want to be happy ! » What's the point of having a job, a wife and children if you're not happy? he thinks when faced with the puzzled look of his interlocutor.
The search for happiness has taken the place of a cape, a pole star. At a very young age, he set off in search of that serenity and equanimity that his parents and family missed so much. He drew them first from nature and from books on spirituality, psychology and comparative philosophy. Tired, after three years of life in a company, a dismissal, a breakup, and a suffering family on which he cannot count, he finds himself on the street, without a fixed address. Fundamentally optimistic, he bounced back quickly, launched himself into street theatre, before training in humanist psychology and opening his own practice at the age of twenty-five in the east of France. He then continued his quest for meaning, turned to Far Eastern and Indian philosophies, discovered zazen with Karl Graf Durkheim, learned about gestalt therapy, hypnosis, transactional analysis and somato-therapy.
But it was an encounter, that of a great Tibetan master, Shimed Rigzin Rinpoche, from whom he received lessons informally for nearly fifteen years, which opened the way to his own realization. "Rinpoche possessed this magnetic force that all these great masters have which means that upon contact with them, all our moorings give way one after the other, because our destiny is to reach the light that we intrinsically are", confides Bruno Lallement. Faced with this man, an immaculate mirror in which he can observe the reflections of his own mind, he is gradually transformed.
“A presence that accompanied me”
On the day and at the time of the disappearance of Shimed Rigzin Rinpoche, while he was walking in the middle of the night in his Alsatian village in the company of his companion, he found himself surrounded by an immense cloud of fireflies, whose light sparkled all around them, giving him a deep sense of joy. “After his death, he underlines, I always felt like a presence that accompanied me. Every time I taught, it was like he was there with me. »
