Description: An Australian expatriate, ex-Catholic, and ex-leftist radical with a penchant for speeding, espresso coffee, and four-letter profanities, Robina Courtin hardly seems a likely candidate for a Buddhist nun. And yet, since her conversion over twenty years ago, Robina has traveled the globe, teaching her very unique brand of Buddhism to an international following of passionate devotees. With a machine-gun style and indomitable stamina, perhaps Robina's greatest commitment is to the eighty prisoners she corresponds with across the United States (including a number of death-row inmates in the Kentucky State Penitentiary). In steering her students along the path to enlightenment, she finds inspiration for her own spiritual practice and a way to grapple with the traumatic events that prompted her ordination.
