‹‹ previous      1 2 3
2018-06-25 01 Heart Offerings 33:36
Ajahn Sucitto
The occasion for retreat gives opportunity to establish a field of integrity and make heart offerings by taking precepts, chanting, making offerings to the shrine, and bowing.
2018-06-25 02 Guided Meditation: Sitting at the Root of a Tree 26:29
Ajahn Sucitto
Instructions to establish a grounded, upright posture for meditation and for using breathing to strengthen energy.
2018-06-26 03 Aspiration: To Train in the Wilderness 36:22
Ajahn Sucitto
Ajahn Sucitto compares Dhamma practice to wilderness training – attention is not so driven, and there’s a global awareness. He suggests ways of fortifying and strengthening our practice to meet afflictions of the heart.
2018-06-26 04 Entering the Fields with Faith 60:27
Ajahn Sucitto
Citta is affected by what we take in from our fields. Generally overwhelmed with afflictive effects, there is a point when we can stop and open in the midst of affliction and bring forth faith. The 5 spiritual faculties then have authority over the 5 sense faculties, imbuing the heart with wholesome qualities.
2018-06-26 05 Dhamma: The Liberation Field 39:05
Ajahn Sucitto
What arises in our fields is based on what’s been intended and activated. We become overwhelmed by the persistent activations of control, pressure, separateness. Accessing our Dhamma field gives rise to that which seeks balance, harmony, and that which seeks the welfare of all.
2018-06-27 06 Guided Meditation: Holding the Field Beneath Self-View 17:11
Ajahn Sucitto
What’s there when self-view is released? Beneath the grip of self-view is the intention to welcome and include it all. Intentionality comes before attention.
2018-06-27 07 Standing Meditation: Include It All 14:01
Ajahn Sucitto
Instructions for coming into the bodily sense through ground, upright posture and space.
2018-06-27 08 Careful Attention to the Wilderness of Self 58:54
Ajahn Sucitto
Our self can become extremely busy seeking safety and comfort, acceptance and inclusion. Use the body to ground this agitated energy – embodiment is the ground we reflexively seek.
2018-06-27 09 The Craft of Meditation 18:06
Ajahn Sucitto
There are various tools and forms for meditation, but most important is our relationship to these: right intention, not too much effort, allowing the natural arising of experience.
2018-06-28 10 Standing Meditation: Skillful Use of Perceptions 22:40
Ajahn Sucitto
After attuning to the subjective experience of the back, guidance is provided to use perceptions as a means for generating comfort and relaxation.
