The Retreat Guide, Gwénola Herbette, Ph.D.
is a Certified MBSR teacher trainer, who dedicated several years to be trained as an MBSR teacher trainer, through the year-long “teacher trainer” training as well as through apprenticeships, mentorships, study, practice, and a three-month apprenticeship at the Center for Mindfulness, University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMass CFM) in 2014.

Deeply curious about life, Gwénola studied psychology and was trained as a scientific researcher and as a psychotherapist for many years. Encountering mindfulness in 2003 was a turning point. She has been committed to the art of both her own daily practice and the teaching of mindfulness for several years now, as well as to teacher-led meditation retreats and the study of the texts at the roots of these practices in the Theravada and early Buddhist teachings, with a secular approach. Gwénola has been teaching MBSR since 2009, pioneering this program to French-speaking Europe.

Since 2015, Gwénola has been training MBSR teachers at the Institut Pleine Conscience© that she founded and manages. In addition, she supervises MBSR and MBCT teachers. She also contributes to the training of mindfulness teachers in several training programs in Europe, and invites teachers from various countries to lead retreats and to offer workshops, to support the access to the practice and to the teachings to local practitioners and teachers. Gwénola has previously taught at the University Charles-de-Gaulle, Lille (France), and worked as a psychotherapist specialised in health psychology and chronic pain.
