At the time of the winter solstice, we explore, through teachings, stories, and poetry, how we can embrace the dark - in stopping and being still, in opening to the unknown and to mystery, in being with difficulties, and in creativity and the coming of what is new - and open to the light, as it emerges from the dark.

  Achaan Sucitto
Listening to the unique but common struggles of others; Ajahn Sucitto on a 40 year retreat; some personal history of how Ajahn came to meditation and his early struggles; thank you to all participants; coming from a place of gratitude; being firm with all the reasons that we throw up not to practice; take a little time every day to sit and breathe; it's as important as eating or bathing every day; the citta goes one way - it does not go down, it goes up. “Thank you for your determination and your company and your honesty in the practice. May you all progress and develop and may your cittas rise to happiness and peace.”
