Jean-Sebastien Brettes, the seasoned meditation guide at the helm of this transformative journey, embarked on his own exploration of meditation in 2004. His initial encounter with Vipassana meditation was nothing short of transformative, laying the foundation for a practice that has since become an integral part of his daily life.
Over the years, Jean-Sebastien has delved deeper into his meditation practice through regular long-term retreats, immersing himself in both Vipassana and Zen traditions. His commitment to personal growth is underscored by his certification as a professional mindfulness meditation teacher (CMT-P) by the International Mindfulness Teachers Association.
Jean-Sebastien's teaching philosophy revolves around the belief in meditation's power to instigate profound change. His approach is grounded in establishing a robust foundation of meditation basics, ensuring that students acquire the tools for a sustainable and personal practice.
Beyond formal training, Jean-Sebastien's unique life journey—from early years in Ivory Coast to service in the French special forces and a career in multimedia production—shapes his teaching style. This diversity of experiences allows him to offer a broad perspective, integrating insights from various walks of life.
Apart from meditation, Jean-Sebastien is a practitioner of 'fasting and hiking,' a holistic approach to rejuvenation that merges physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. As a host of fasting and hiking retreats, he combines the Buchinger therapeutic fasting method with hiking, yoga, and meditation, providing participants with a comprehensive and transformative experience.
Currently residing on Shelter Island, NY, alongside his wife, Céline Antoine, a renowned international yoga teacher, Jean-Sebastien continues to explore the interplay of mindfulness, creativity, and well-being. Through his workshops and retreats, he strives to empower others on their journey to self-discovery.
