Lectures with Jesper Jørgensen in Stockholm, 22/11-24/11 2019
november 22 - november 24
Jesper Jorgensen, born on Bornholm (DK) in 1957, met Diamond Way Buddhism and his teacher Lama Ole Nydahl in March 1988, in Aarhus Denmark. The next day Lama Ole asked him to move into the center in Odense, DK. In October 1991, at the request of Lama Ole, he moved to San Francisco, California where he helped to start the first of Lama Ole’s centers in the US, and later the expansion throughout the Americas.
Jesper has been traveling to give talks in meditation centers in North and Central America, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Europe and Russia.
At the New Years Course in Hamburg in 1996, he met his wife to be Charlotte, who moved to San Francisco to join him there in 1998. In August, 2007 Jesper and Charlotte moved to Colorado to find and start the first national Retreat Center for North America (Dakini Ranch). When that initial concept was changed to several regional retreat centers in November 2008, Lama Ole asked them to move back to Europe and help with the running of the newly acquired Europe Center in Immenstadt, Germany. They moved into the EC January 2009 and lived there for about 4 years. Now they live and work 15 minutes from the EC, together with their two children.
