2020-07-19 Handling Difficult Feeling 48:26
  Ajahn Sucitto
The unawakened citta always reacts and tries to interpret what’s happening. Rather than interpret experience, notice the stress building up. Hover over the difficult feeling and equanimity, compassion, goodwill gradually comes in.

  Ajahn Sucitto
The reclining posture uses the entire length of the body to establish firmness. Open the front of the body to the space around, like a blanket of goodwill covering the body.

2020-07-18 Tending to Body Energy 5:04
  Ajahn Sucitto
Everything that affects us comes into our bodies, so a lot of stress can accumulate. Sympathize with what the body energy requires so it can come out of its pressurized jumbled state.

2020-07-18 The Open and Unrestricted Heart 41:09
  Ajahn Sucitto
Attention is generally driven by self-interest, to seek what is pleasant. The possibilities of what one receives are then restricted by the “self program”. Unrestricted means changing the baseline from that of the person to something impersonal that can yet be subjectively experienced – clarity, lovingkindness, letting go. Mindfulness of body acts as a platform for steady open awareness.

2020-07-18 Walking Meditation: Come Out of the Boundary of Me 8:40
  Ajahn Sucitto
Instructions for experiencing unrestricted awareness while walking: give attention to the flow of energy from firmness to openness. Notice the restrictions of visual and mental consciousness creeping in, and bring attention back to the rhythmic play of energy.

2020-07-18 Secure Connection, Free Roaming 23:03
  Ayya Medhanandi
Removing our harness to the world, we really detach and make the intention in the mind to stop. Having moved inwardly into this now moment, we pause and secure our internal connection to truth. This work requires our faith, vigilance, sustained attention, care and perseverance. We long for freedom and it will arise, releasing us to roam free in the vast space of the mind – empty and awake. A guided meditation and Dhamma talk.

2020-07-18 Practise Like the Barley Reaper 25:32
  Ayya Medhanandi
In a dialogue between King Milinda and Venerable Nagasena, we hear the Buddha’s instruction on mental training and how to apply our allies of mindfulness, restraint and wisdom. Devoted to the training, we can overcome ignorance, take hold of the mind and cut off the defilements just as the barley reaper cuts his barley. Our mission is to lean towards Nibbāna, not believing the self-making stories, and gradually, patiently, wrestle free from ignorance, waking up right in the middle of any storm we may face.
