ABOUT THE TEACHER: Jungne Baader met Shamar Rinpoche, Jigme Rinpoche and Gendün Rinpoche in 1994 and, inspired by the teachings of these Tibetan meditators, moved to the Kagyu Ling retreat center in the Auvergne region, Kundröl Ling.


She completed two traditional three-year retreats from 1998 to 2004. Afterwards, she stayed in Kundröl Ling until 2007 to deepen her studies of Buddhist philosophy and meditation practice.


Since 2008, Jungne has been active as a translator of Jigme Rinpoche in the German-speaking world, as well as a Dharma teacher in Dhagpo, the official center of the Kagyü Ling in France. She teaches in various Buddhist centers across France, Spain, and Germany.
