Rev. WonGong So (Won: “Circle” + Gong: “Emptiness”) is the head priest of our temple. She was ordained in 1994 and completed her novice and undergraduate training, as well as her graduate work and internship, in Korea, majoring in Won-Buddhist religious studies.

She served in the Gang-Nam Temple in Seoul for three years before moving to the US in 1997, when she was assigned to the Rockville Temple in Maryland. She completed her Master's in Social Work at the University of Maryland in 2002 before moving to North Carolina the following year.  

At the Temple, WonGong develops and leads meditation programs and short- and long-term retreats, bringing cultural and spiritual enrichment to our community and beyond. WonGong enjoys sharing the blessings of dharma practice with others and gives lectures on Won-Buddhism and meditation workshops at Duke, UNC, and other educational institutions.
