Welcome!

:namaste:
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


Ultimately, your meditation involves sustaining the knowing, followed by continuous letting go as you experience sense objects through the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. It involves just this much and there is no need to make anything more out of it.

- Ajahn Chah

A quick google search shows:
http://theravada.fr/
http://www.buddhanet.info/wbd/country.php?country_id=62
https://www.vipassana.fr/InfosPratiques ... Salles.htm

Just type in the city or country of your choice into google and the word Theravada. You will find many places.Good luck!

p.s. This was posted in the wrong thread. It is still kind of relevant so I left I up. Sorry for the confusion!
