We spend our life seduced by the outside world, convinced that happiness and suffering come from “out there.” Yet happiness and suffering come from the way we perceive and interpret things, not the things themselves. How can we begin to unpack and unravel the workings of our own mind, so that we can find a reliable happiness that is not dependent on external conditions? Ven. Robina Courtin, a Tibetan Buddhist nun since the late 1970s, will use the Buddha’s unique psychological skills to help us loosen our instinctive clinging to a limited sense of self, which lies at the heart of our suffering.
