2022-05-20 (1) GM 19:19
Ajahn Sucitto
Gathering ourselves into a field of collective awareness, we tune into a sense of shared belonging and support with other human beings.
2022-05-20 (2) The skilful use of precepts 11:10
Ajahn Sucitto
Refuges and precepts provide a field of conscience and concern that wards off carelessness, imbalance, distractedness and negativity – and helps in moving towards a true norm that won’t let us down.
2022-05-21 (1) Standing Meditation 41:40
Ajahn Sucitto
Becoming aware of the spinal axis and the space around it. This can be used in any position.
2022-05-21 (2) Reflections 46:49
Ajahn Sucitto
Words like “central axis” and “periphery” help create a template for awareness of all the senses in a field rather than seizing on points or a particular sensory experience. This is citta / mind/ heart, an awareness of a psychosomatic field.
2022-05-21 (3) Body Work 27:56
Laura Bridgman
A combination of massage and tapping techniques to relax the body.
2022-05-21 (4) Reflections on Energy / Viriya 17:51
Laura Bridgman
Understanding and engaging with energies we bring into a retreat can help us to be aware of and shed reactions to them. This transition is an important learning opportunity.
2022-05-22 (1) Discovering the Energy of Presence 44:45
Ajahn Sucitto
The retreat theme acknowledges we need allies in cultivating awareness, something outside our normal self structure but available, in spite of the personality. Aspiration/ faith are the first of these.
2022-05-22 (2) Walking Suggestions 6:17
Ajahn Sucitto
Our energy is normally inclined to the front of our bodies. Is there a wider approach?
