Ajahn Sucitto's Dharma Talks at Gaia House
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.
2022-05-25 (1) Sati-sampajañña - Clearing Hindrances 60:12
Hindrances can be cleared through ‘mindful direct awareness’ – sati sampajañña. Such working through what blocks the potential of citta, demands humility, since it is not one’s personal self doing the work. Body is a key and potent resource.

2022-05-24 (2) Currents in the Citta - Sati 54:00
Considering the structures of the day we can release those that are not useful and direct them to discover citta and an inner balance, not just 'the next thing'.

2022-05-23 (2) Sati - The Third Indriya 56:19
Sati-mindfulness, or bearing in mind – is the third indriya. It is a powerful ally for liberation. With this we come out of old habits and find freshness, meaning, potency. You feel where your strength arises.

With standing it's difficult to drift off. Feeling connection to and the strength of the ground and using the bones for support rather than muscle.

2022-05-22 (1) Discovering the Energy of Presence 44:45
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.

2022-05-21 (2) Reflections 46:49
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.
