Wagga residents have the opportunity to open their hearts and minds this weekend with a series of seminars presented by respected Buddhist teacher Geshe Sherab.

Geshe has travelled across the globe sharing his knowledge and is excited to teach in Wagga for the first time since 2016. 

“We want teach people how to be aware of themselves and care for themselves and their minds,” he said.

“You can change your whole outlook on life and experience new things.”

Wagga’s Patrick Flynn has been practicing Buddhism for 13 months and says he has already felt the benefits.

“The study of mindfulness and relaxing was something of interest to me,” he said.

“It’s about learning to let go of egotistical illusions … and all those things you hang onto mentally.”
