Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks
Ajahn Sucitto
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.
2020-10-24 Guided Meditation – Open Body, Open Heart 29:57
Guidance for moving from the anatomical body to sensing into the energy body. Switch off what isn’t needed, step attention back and listen. As one opens the body, one opens the heart. This is the basis for wisdom.

2020-10-11 Recollecting Faith 15:02
