2021-07-13 Guided Meditation – Open Stability 15:00
Ajahn Sucitto
A practice with opening the sense fields while remaining with the upright. Remain in receptive mode – there is the seeing, the seen, the one who sees – not moving out into any of these, staying with undivided wholeness.

2021-07-13 Day 4 Q&A 45:24
Ajahn Sucitto
How can I love myself; how to deal with loneliness; questions that arise while sitting; gratitude and rejoicing; preventing negative energy coming towards us; in-breath gets stuck at solar plexus; using breathing meditation in standing posture; working with the effects of harmful childhood events; energy can be helpful but isn’t a meditation technique; worry about other people.

2021-07-13 Puja – Surveying the Field of Kamma 39:52
Ajahn Sucitto
Puja offers the opportunity to survey the field of your mind, your kammic field. Survey it with the eye of a Buddha, with compassion and awareness, not self, just qualities moving around. Remain on the edge, keep your intentions light – sensing, steadying – and let things reveal themselves more fully.

2021-07-13 Replenishment 65:06
Ajahn Sucitto
Citta can become established on our own or others’ foolish actions, then suffers from depletion, withdrawal of empathy. It doesn’t know how to drink in its own goodness. Use breathing to shift these deep-seated negative formations, suffusing the body with the qualities of the brahmaviharā. Put aside the doing and receive these natural resonances as a source of nourishment and replenishment.

2021-07-13 Serving the Dhamma 53:40
Willa Thaniya Reid
The Buddha’s teaching is a deepening examination of cause and effect. It takes us out of the contraction of self-view, stress and suffering and into the possibility of waking up. Take in the teachings as nourishment, let them soothe and stabilize the citta. We’ve been given all we need. Trusting the process, trusting ourselves, let us serve this awakening heart.

2021-07-13 Dhamma as Uprighting and Encouraging 28:52
Willa Thaniya Reid
Let the Dhamma resonate and support our understanding of our own lives. The encouragement is to come to know it for oneself. Come into body, ground, here, establish mindfulness. Whatever is happening, we have a way of meeting it and coming into right relationship in a way that steadies and frees the heart.
