Here you can get in touch with what is happening in our community, meet friends, learn about Buddhist Philosophy, and most importantly discover methods that may help you to overcome suffering, develop compassion and gain insight. We are a collection of FPMT study groups in Central Ontario, meeting in Kitchener/Waterloo, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and Toronto.

The Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition ('FPMT') transmits the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through Tibetan Buddhist teachings, meditation, community service, retreat centers, and projects that support the Inspiration and Guide of the FPMT His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The FPMT is based on the Gelugpa tradition of Lama Tsong Khapa of Tibet as taught by our founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe and spiritual director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Change your Mind, Transform your Life

 Inspiring, insightful, hard-hitting, full of wit and delight.  

You will not want to miss this exclusive event in Toronto. 

Renowned Australian Tibetan Buddhist Nun Venerable Robina Courtin speaks on how to work with disturbing emotions of anxiety, fear, anger, depression, low self-ssteem.

Approaching Buddhism as a Psychology, she addresses audiences around the world on understanding the nature of the mind.


  • Understand the role of the mind in the quality of your life.
  • Recognize the states of mind that create negative emotions in daily life.
  • The extent to which we have them is the degree we suffer & harm others.
  • Techniques to know the contents of your mind.
  • Skills to develop clarity and change your interpretation and assumptions.
  • Reduce disturbing emotions, disappoints and dissatisfaction.
  • Transform yourself from within and be happier.

The fundamental thing that Buddha is saying that the main cause of whether we’re happy or we suffer is not the outside event, it’s the internal experience, the way we experience it. In other words, our mind.” -Ven Robina
