Venerable Robina Courtin, acclaimed western Tibetan Buddhist nun and teacher, is returning to Brisbane to speak and teach at Camp Hill's Langri Tangpa Buddhist Centre from the 10th to 15th May 2016.Through this special series of public lectures and interactive workshops, Venerable Robina will show us how we can use basic Buddhist philosophy to have compassion for ourselves and for others; to find inner peace so that we free ourselves from regret and guilt; and live with meaning in 21st century Australia."What Buddha is saying is that we have this incredible potential, if we have the courage to look inside," she says.Venerable Robina – seen on TV as a guest on Q&A and Judith Lucy's Spiritual Journey and featured in the award-winning film Chasing Buddha – is famous for her down to earth and engaging approach. Her inimitable teaching style is direct, compassionate and humorous. "We love hosting Venerable Robina's talks and workshops at Langri Tangpa Centre – her warm, wise teaching is a powerful introduction to Buddhism for so many western audiences," says Jane Willis, director of Langri Tangpa Centre.
Venerable Robina Courtin, a nun in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for over 35 years, was born in Melbourne and raised a Catholic. Venerable Robina's life and work have included involvement in the radical left and feminist politics, martial arts training, and serving as a personal bodyguard to HH the 14th Dalai Lama. She founded the Liberation Prison Project in the USA, which takes care of the spiritual needs of prisoners, including many on death row.An extraordinary woman with boundless energy and charisma, her style when teaching the Dharma is sparklingly clear, direct and compassionate.
