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.
2020-12-19 Stillness Flowing 46:11
Meet the constant flow of life with the stillness and poise of citta. Relate to it all with respect and mutuality, learning to adapt, flow and listen to life. Practice with cultivation of subtle energies of body and heart and with samādhi. Sutta Reference: SN1:1

2020-12-19 Guided Meditation - Turning to 'I' 14:48
Beginning the process of centering, set aside what isn’t relevant right now. Strengthen the bodily reference to help support citta. Acknowledge the sense of I am – what is the I, how is that experienced?

2020-12-18 Easeful Ceasing 48:56
Citta needs to be trained to rest back from engagement. By not going into the stories, spreading awareness over the entire body, and letting emotions rise and pass. As citta releases from contact, it accesses a finer more lasting and agreeable sense of security and well-being.

2020-12-18 Guided Meditation - The Still Centre 35:28
The energy of citta is conjoined with bodily energy. Steadying and brightening body gives citta a place to rest so it can withdraw from phenomena. With the disentangling from phenomena, the quiet center of citta, the knowingness, becomes more apparent.

2020-12-17 Exploration and Patience 9:10
Dhamma is a direct experience. You can directly touch it and open up to it. Handle it more with curiosity than trying to figure out what to do about it. Patient, receptive, as the meditator becomes more open stuck mental states can fall away.

2020-12-17 Touch What You Don't Know 57:19
The tool of wisdom cross references thinking, emotion and body. Body helps reveal the heart. Use it to sense and handle emotion. This is using embodied wisdom for the purposes of calming and revealing. It’s how you get to know the bits you don’t know.
