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.
2018-10-11 02 Day 2 Morning Puja: Recollection and Chanting 48:07
We can use pūjā and chanting as a means for connecting with the heart in a meaningful way, to recollect values in a slowed down process of mind: What am I rising up to? Inclining towards? What’s important for me? The Buddhist convention is to recollect the Triple Gem – drop below personhood to something more fundamental and universal.

2018-10-10 01 Day 1 Opening: An Attitude of Practice Rather than a System 47:16
Rather than rely on a system, cultivate an attitude towards practice. Systems have uses, but can eventually curtail what we’re trying to drop into. Part of the theme of this retreat is about recognizing some of the stressful systems that get built into our minds around speed and progress – and awakening out of them. [24:06 Begin Guided Meditation] Establishing Ground and Space through Breathing: We can use the body as a channel to settle the mind. Use the out-breath to ground, use the in-breath to lift. These two together give you a form with a distinct foundation and uprightness to it.

Feeling stressed or overwhelmed? The Buddha’s Dhamma gives us a way to develop the inner strength and space to meet what arises in our lives. The weekend will offer ways to cultivate the ‘inner authority’ of the five indriya, and the capacity to bring forth good will. It will require commitment to a weekend schedule of sitting and standing in meditation, with extended periods of silence.
