We are delighted to be hosting Geshe Sherab at Land of Joy from 2nd-4th November. During that time the following schedule will be taking place.
Bringing Retreat into Daily Life
A series of teachings from 7pm on the 2nd November to 5pm on the 3rd November.
This is a precious opportunity to hear Geshe Sherab share his wisdom on how we can transfer what we experience during retreat into our daily lives and practice.
These teachings plan to include practising bodhicitta and emptiness in daily life, maintaining a regular daily practice and how to keep it alive after completing a retreat
Finding Inner Peace in a Turbulent World
A public talk at Hexham Community Centre starting at 2pm on the 4th November.
This is a rare opportunity to hear a Nepalese Tibetan Buddhist Monk’s thoughts on how we can find peace within our busy lives. Geshe Sherab has spent many years teaching in different countries around the world enabling him to fuse the culture of the west with the philosophy of the East to help people live more peaceful lives.
No registration necessary – just turn up on the day.
