2021-01-11 Of Donkeys and Riptides 50:32
  Ajahn Sucitto
When citta is collected in itself, it can begin to review the aspects of its experience that overwhelm and bind it, aspects not sensed or felt before. Train attention to go lightly, slow down, and open awareness to these unknown places. Fortify the citta with the rich energy of goodwill and recollections that warm the heart.

2021-01-10 Our Training in Cultivating Metta: An Overview 55:07
  Donald Rothberg
Practicing metta is an ancient vocation in which we incline toward metta, toward a warm, expansive friendliness, each moment. In doing so, we also come to see what gets in the way of metta. A metta retreat offers us a focused period of training, helping us then to bring our metta more into our formal practice, our daily lives, and a world deeply in need of metta. Yet there are challenges in metta practice. We also identify a number of these challenges, and how responses to the challenges point to some of the fundamental ways that training in metta transforms us.

2021-01-10 Opening out of Reactivity 50:36
  Ajahn Sucitto
We are encouraged to investigate the region of feeling, perception and reaction. By creating space before the reactivity, citta has the choice to go down the same path of agitation or settle back into itself. Develop citta’s capacity for this through seasoning the heart to be contented in itself.

2021-01-09 Beyond the Present Moment 64:07
  Nathan Glyde
Being present is an essential component of the Dharma path. It feels good to bring body, heart, mind, attention, consciousness, all together in the present moment. But being present is not the goal of the Dharma. (Guided meditation and Dharma reflection from Gaia House's Online Dharma Hall)

2021-01-09 The Real World Begins in the Heart 44:01
  Ajahn Sucitto
When we step back from the sense fields, citta can become steadied on itself. Clear meaning can come from this place of rest and ease. Then we can steer through input of the sense sphere, discern the meanings, and notice the effects in the heart and body. This is practice.

2021-01-09 Guided Meditation – Sensitivity in Embodiment 58:30
  Ajahn Sucitto
The ability to sense and feel, read how citta is affecting body and body is affecting it – this is initiation into the process. Use the language of touch rather than seeing. Our fundamental base to support this process is the wide-open body. It contains all of the kammic stuff we need to work through.
