Teacher: Guo Gu (Dr. Jimmy Yu)

In 1980, Guo Gu (Dr. Jimmy Yu) began learning meditation from Master Sheng Yen, who was residing in New York at the time. In 1991, after college, Guo Gu was ordained as a monk and became Master Sheng Yen’s first personal attendant who traveled with the master. In 1995, he had his first Chan experience, and was given permission by the master to teach Chan independently. Ever since then he has been actively teaching meditation and leading retreats at Chan Meditation Center in New York, Dharma Drum Retreat Center in upstate New York, and various cities in the U.S. and Europe.

In 2000, Guo Gu left monasticism and re-entered the world. In 2008, he received his Ph.D. in Buddhist Studies from Princeton University and began teaching Buddhism and East Asian religions academically at Florida State University. In 2009, he founded the Tallahassee Chan Center. He is the guiding teacher for the Western Dharma Teachers Training course at the Chan Meditation Center in New York and the Dharma Drum Lineage.
