2020-08-19 Into the Quiet 21:28
  Ayya Medhanandi
We go forth into the quiet of the heart, distant from the world, to glimpse the Unconditioned. We are alone but we are as if with all beings. There is no 'one' who wakes up, there is just awakening. It is freeing and it's free - but it will cost us absolutely everything. We give up everything but there is nothing to give up. And we gain the understanding of the ancients.

2020-08-18 Chopping and Burning the Tree of Emptiness 24:41
  Ayya Medhanandi
Too busy in the world, all entangled, we yearn to be free. So direct the mind to Nibbana - like a tree that leans to the East. And when it falls, it will fall in that direction. We too will arrive if we aim well. Aim for the far goal but keep attention in the present where we are. Chop wood for a thousand days, but in a single moment, we see into the emptiness of it all. We burn everything and light the mind with the fire of wisdom.

2020-08-16 Guided Meditation – The Process of Centering 12:28
  Ajahn Sucitto
In meditation we try to establish a clear center from which to look at the various inputs and outputs happening in the mind. This process of centering is done through direct experience of body. The wholeness of body gives rise to a simple, centering effect.

2020-08-16 Settle Citta through Relationship 39:23
  Ajahn Sucitto
Meditation is a relational experience. There’s the knowing that you’re being affected and how you respond to that. Relate to what arises with dispassion, calm, sensitivity and openness. In this relationship we learn all the skills of wisdom, compassion, clarity and non-clinging. This is nibānna here and now.
