Uncertain times are upon us, and western nun Ven. Robina shares the Buddha’s teachings on how to live with a courageous heart, free of fear.
How do we find peace when everything around us seems so crazy? Whether we are overwhelmed by troubled relationships, the spread of coronavirus, loss of a job, the hectic demands of family life or the uncertain state of global affairs; we can undo destructive habits of reacting to our external world.

Ven. Robina will lead three Saturday workshops (six teachings in all) addressing our anxiety about change, uncertainty and impermanence, sharing her extra-ordinary life experience, and giving us courage to be true to ourselves and live the best life that we can. Join us for this exclusive event – a virtual tour with Ven. Robina Courtin at LTC – and enjoy her clear and inspiring teachings, up close and personal, in the comfort of our own lounge-rooms!
We may not be able to change the pace of living, but we can develop an inner peace so we can meet all situations with confidence and calm. In her teachings, Ven. Robina will address the most common difficulties of the modern world – distraction, anxiety, and our never-ending busyness. Sharing key aspects of Buddhist ‘mind-training’ practices, Ven. Robina will help us transform problems into opportunities and maintain a positive and peaceful inner life in the face of life’s challenges.
“A calm mind can be a busy, engaged mind. What causes the problems isn’t a busy mind, it’s when the busy mind is caught up in fear and worry of what people think about you. That’s the stuff that causes the misery. But if you fill your mind with thoughts about being useful to others all day, and being content with yourself, you don’t have a problem, believe me!” — Ven. Robina Courtin
