How many times have you started on something and never got it finished? Are there things you always wanted to do, but never get around to actually do them? Are you constantly overwhelmed by the number of tasks and demands on your list?
If this sounds familiar, you are not alone! We have all been there. Whether you’re developing spiritually or working on a project, the keys to success are inspiration, energy and persistence. All of these come from our mind and can be developed.
In this day-course, a renowned teacher of Buddhist psychology and philosophy, Ven. Robina Courtin, will explore the sources of discouragement, laziness and fear, but also the sources of joy, energy and courage. Through better understanding of your own mind, you will learn practical techniques to slowly start changing your attitude and ultimately your life.
The teaching will be accompanied by guided meditations, including a Green Tara practice, which is known to be helpful in overcoming internal and external challenges. The course is suitable for both beginners and more experienced students.
Native Australian, Ven. Robina Courtin has been a buddhist nun for nearly 40 years. Well known for her work with people in prisons, Ven. Robina’s life and work is the subject of the award-winning documentary ‘Chasing Buddha’. She teaches full time around the world at the centers of her teachers’ organization, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).
Let this New Year be a real new start for your personal and spiritual journey!
