Facing Reality – With Ven. Robina Courtin
From Tuesday, 24. November 2020
To Thursday, 3. December 2020
Location : Main Gompa & pilgrimage sites

Shakyamuni Buddha

This course will be led by renowned senior FPMT Australian nun Ven. Robina Courtin.

In her unique, down-to-earth and intense manner, Robina will analyse how experience drives our emotions and how we can train our minds to develop emotional inner strength and balance.

By cultivating emotional awareness we create the ability to respond to situations realistically rather than to react, to be in control rather to be controlled by our emotions. Helping to separate fact from fiction, she applies a Buddhist understanding of how our ego is at play in all our "disturbing emotions" or "delusions" to the challenge of how we can go beyond them.

This is a very special course as it will include pilgrimage to the Mahabodhi Temple with Venerable Robina.
