2016-05-17 Meeting dukkha with primary empathy 48:35
Ajahn Sucitto
Resolving dukkha comes through revealing its pain, while having the means to do so. These means are samadhi and primary empathy-these take us beyond the trap of conceiving ourselves.

2016-05-17 Five Recollections: Aging, Sickness, Death, Separation and Kamma 23:29

Recollecting that these are the planes we get hit by and stuck in. We see the need to resolve old mamma. Meet it with metta-karuna, welcome the dissonances 'home'.

2016-05-15 Cultivating the Measureless leads to release 55:04

2016-05-13 Mutual Individuality 20:47

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.
