As a monk, I bring a strong commitment, along with the renunciate flavor, to the classic Buddhist teachings. I play with ideas, with humor and a current way of expressing the teachings, but I don't dilute them.
2016-05-08 Citta and a person meet in the body. 61:52
Citta is occluded by not knowing its freedom. Citta enters the sensory condition, is ‘born’, develops a person to meet ‘the other’. Here is dukkha and personal responses to that don’t work, but dukkha can be released through citta in the body.

2016-05-08 Standing Meditation: Finding Balance 19:35
Balance is an important aspect of bodily/somatic intelligence. It is alert, free from pressure and sensitive. Attuning to this can bring these qualities into citta.

2016-05-08 Puja: Devotion as a way of bringing citta into personhood 41:43
Use of one’s voice and of giving it to the sacred. Through merging one’s voice and giving into the communal field, citta can rise out of the isolation of personhood.

2016-05-07 Meditation – the gift of natural ease 47:35
Find ground in the body as a gift, not worked for. This opens space around the body. Breathing is another given that flows through that, establishing rhythm = natural time.

2016-05-07 The Nature of Citta 59:45
Citta is awareness, heart and mind. It experiences involuntary and voluntary modes. In the involuntary is release, but the path to that is through intention, disengagement, and discernment.

2016-04-30 AM Puja: Kalyanamitta 48:53
The conditions and support for continued cultivation and practice outside of the retreat setting can be met through kalyanamitta (spiritual friendship). This wise association reflects what is true, good and beautiful so citta can continue to come forth.

As retreat comes to an end, the encouragement is to establish your home in citta by warding off the unskillful and setting boundaries.

2016-04-29 AM Dhamma Talk: Turning Citta Around 49:03
Access the natural state of citta, that of pure openness and awareness, before conceiving and the sense of self arises. Practice receiving pragmatic goodwill for oneself in this primary state.

With deep listening the basis of citta can come forth - pure awareness and empathy.
