Native Portlander and Buddhist monk, Jung teaches under the guidance of Tibetan meditation master H.E. Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche. Jung’s Portland lectures will be his first after retuning to the United States from a successful European teaching tour.


“We want to offer people a clear path to reducing their suffering and increasing their happiness based on the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni,” explains Jung. “Rather than feel like the victims of our own lives, the Buddha taught that we can understand the causes of suffering and true happiness is within our grasp.”
