2016-05-13 Mutual Individuality 20:47
  Ajahn Sucitto
Becoming a ‘true individual’ occurs when goodwill and sharing take the lead over ‘personal obsession’ and programs based on fear and desire. ‘Sharing blessings’ is a skillful meditation.

2016-05-13 The Rewilding Project: Mindfulness based on Right View 59:48
  Ajahn Sucitto
Right View presents experience in terms of conditions that create a person, rather than a person who creates/owns/is other than conditions. In the resultant dispassion of Right View beautiful resonances can come forth.

2016-05-12 Meditation: Accessing natural time and space in the somatic domain 30:37
  Ajahn Sucitto
Mindfulness of breathing can be developed through somatic sensitivity (rather than tracking sensations). This requires and supports a reset of time and space – from felt pressures to natural energy.

2016-05-12 Mindfulness for Liberation: from Breathing to the Four Noble Truths 65:13
  Ajahn Sucitto
Mindfulness as a practice begins with bare attention to sense – contact, establishing safety, ground and balance. Breathing trains us in terms of proper attunement. This non-grasping awareness gives fruition in the Four Noble Truths.

2016-05-11 The Process and Development of Spiritual Authorities [ Indriya ] 57:27
  Ajahn Sucitto
The 5 indriya arise from the grounded citta – they lead the meditation process. Without these we unnecessarily re-activate samsaric processes: perfectionism, projection, self-criticism. Get on the right track!

2016-05-11 Reflection on Citta as Responsive Sentiency 20:58
  Ajahn Sucitto
Our awareness touches and responds. To set it in line with Dhamma, we use the occasion to bring forth, to offer heart – so that it can open. This is Dhamma practice, Sangha is the human individual quality of our subsequent endeavor.

2016-05-10 Guided Meditation on Breathing 20:34
  Ajahn Sucitto
Get the body grounded, set the spine, sense the balance. Trace the rhythm of breathing, apply some tuning, let its energy spread through the body. Enjoy.

2016-05-10 Path: Kamma and it’s ending – in body and mind. 65:44
  Ajahn Sucitto
Citta moves through Kamma, not through space-time. It is triggered by ‘old Kamma’ – perceptions, attitudes, personality programs. It keeps recreating these unless there is direct insight – the Kamma that ends Kamma.

2016-05-10 Reflection on the Four Noble Truths 47:06
  Ajahn Sucitto
Building up the strength to meet dukkha: moving out of habitual support systems, give oneself fully to citta and somatic presence.

2016-05-09 Q & A 41:25
  Ajahn Sucitto
Pain, drowsiness, ethical integrity (in a non-ethical world), nature as a model for humans.
