2022-05-06 Sustaining the Middle Way Sampajañña 26:37
Ajahn Sucitto
Using the body's sensitivity we can notice what stabilizes and gladdens the citta, that moment the Buddha touches our heart. How can our practice continue this? Ajahn recommends cultivating sampajañña - fully and directly knowing what’s happening - and describes its four qualities.

2022-08-12 GM - The gift of ground 15:31
Ajahn Sucitto
Receiving the gift of ground to access the body and the breath
2022-08-12 The moderation of the middle way 38:35
Ajahn Sucitto
Developing an awareness of mind states and their bodily feelings brings an understanding of the mental and energy bodies, a freedom from the prison of the self and a transformed “doing” energy.
2022-09-02 GM 22:26
Ajahn Sucitto
A combined talk, examining how chanting contributes to external and internal practice, and guided meditation (at 12:15) addressing the framing of the body.
2022-09-02 Citta internal-external in balance 28:28
Ajahn Sucitto
Contemplating citta reveals how its external manifestations are formed – in speech and behaviours from its internal moods and feelings that overwhelm. Taking refuge internally through embodiment supports the contemplation leading to liberation.

Ajahn Sucitto
01:32 Where can I get a print copy of your book Breathing Like a Buddha? (also PDF here: https://cdn.amaravati.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/27/Breathing-Like-a-Buddha-Web.pdf); 02:24 How can I contribute some dana to you? (also see here: https://www.cittaviveka.org/online-donations and navigate to Chithurst); 04:04 When you speak of the energy body, is that the embodied sense of self? 06:35 What did you mean when you said “The space within and without the body where mental formations form”? 11:33 Could you speak about the phrases the Buddha uses in the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta? 13:12 What causes unskilful behaviour or though to arise and to stop? 20:28 How can I work for the benefit for other people without being fearful of making mistakes and hurting others? 22:42 How can I turn the mind from outside to inside with other people around? 27:51 I experience constant internal discussions, comments and judgements about past events. What do I do with this sense of self? 34:02 How do I follow Ajahn’s suggestion to make resolution and intention without getting into goal-seeking on the other hand?
