2020-07-09 Thinking without a Thinker 36:21
  Ajahn Sucitto
When full ground is not properly established, thinking creates the thinker. With proper ground, it’s possible to hover over the thought process and listen deeply to the underlying emotional stream. Establish ground using a simple meditation object that the mind can easily access and stabilize on.

2020-07-08 Meditation: The Space of Loving Awareness 18:21
  Tara Brach
This meditation begins by guiding us through a scan: opening to inner space and aliveness, then to outer space, and then continuous space, filled with the light of awareness. We explore how every experience belongs to this infinite awake space of our Being, and can be held with tenderness and love.

2020-07-08 The Heart Crosses the Abyss - Three Inner Trainings 49:11
  Tara Brach
In the moments when we either resist or get possessed by our strong emotions, we are in a trance, and cut off from openhearted awareness. This talk explores the truth that “it’s not what’s happening, it’s how we’re relating.” We look at three key trainings that help us relate to difficult emotions with a wise and compassionate presence.

2020-07-08 Commitment to Lightness 40:39
  Ajahn Sucitto
In our practice we’re looking not so much at what we want but what we want to release ourselves from – clinging. We challenge the compulsiveness of our reactions, to fight or to grab, with a commitment to lightness. We apply ourselves with deliberate, steady, lightness of touch so things can move and release.
