Carl Jerome, currently teaches online and in-person meditation and the dharma in Highland Park at the North Shore Meditation & Dharma Center, which he founded fifteen years ago. He also teaches at The International Buddhism Friendship Association, a Buddhist Temple in Chicago’s Chinatown.
Carl has practiced meditation for much of his adult life and Buddhism for the past thirty years. His formal practice began in San Francisco under Zen Master Zenshin Philip Whalen Roshi, and fifteen years ago he became a student of Master Ji Ru, abbot of the Mid-America Buddhist Association (MABA), from whom he formally received lay teaching endorsement.
Carl’s students range in age from teens to octogenarians. Some come seeking wellness or spiritual peace,
others are seeking relief from anxiety, stress, depression, or to improve their mental health.
