Cultivating Emotional Awareness – Weekend course with Venerable Robina Courtin

This teaching will be lead 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 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.

About Robina Courtin

Venerable Robina’s teachings are unrelentingly challenging, hard-hitting, serious, funny, visceral, inspiring and empowering. She specialises in applying the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism to contemporary city life, using examples from TV, magazines and film.

Ordained in the late 1970s, Ven. Robina has worked full time since then for Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s FPMT. Over the years she has served as editorial director of Wisdom Publications, editor of Mandala Magazine, executive director of Liberation Prison Project, and as a touring teacher of Buddhism. Her life and work with prisoners have been featured in the documentary films Chasing Buddha and Key to Freedom.

She has taught meditation to prisoners all over the world, developing a particularly close connection with people with life sentences in the USA.

About pricing

Any money we make immediately goes back into running the centre, teaching mind training and helping people to lead happier lives through our courses and events. Any surplus goes to supporting the various community services of FPMT which we are affiliated with.

Yeshe Norbu is a non-profit organization and we value our place in the community immensely and hope you value our contribution as well.

Thus the price of our various courses and events are to be seen as recommended donations. To guide our visitors as to what a reasonable donation to pay is, we have three different "price levels" for all our events:

  • Reduced price. This price is for people who for whatever reason have financial challenges, such as students or pensioners. (Our policy is to never turn anyone away if they can't afford to pay, so if even the reduced price is too much, please contact us.)
  • Regular price. This is the price-point that covers the cost of running the events (venue, donations to teachers, travel costs, etc.) By paying this price you contribute to the centre being able to stay open and offer our program.
  • Super generous price. If you want to support people of lesser means to attend courses and teachings, this price level offers an opportunity to practice generosity. This price is for people who feel they have a little extra to spare for the benefit of others. 

To support the centre, you can consider becoming a member of the centre or of the non-profit (ideel förening) Yeshe Norbu. Last year (which was our first), more than 500 people attended our courses and events. Your support is enabling us to make a real difference. Have a look at the events we are currently offering.
