2019-05-12 Making Use of the Power of Mindfulness 54:40
  Ajahn Sucitto
Mindfulness is an empowered awareness that exerts authority over dukkha. Mindfulness doesn’t contract or become agitated by it. Holding steady and curtailing proliferation, it provides the proper laboratory within which wisdom can arise.

2019-05-12 Puja – A Daily Going Forth 11:26
  Ajahn Sucitto

2019-05-12 Standing Meditation: Relieving Pressure with Ground and Space 21:40
  Ajahn Sucitto
An important theme in mind cultivation is to relieve pressure – mental, emotional, physical. This is done through moderating the quality of ground and space. When these are sensed through the body, citta picks up their signs and relaxes its own pressure.

2019-05-11 Viriya – The Cultivation of Energy 54:49
  Ajahn Sucitto
Energy has to be cultivated as a resource for practice. This process has three stages: gathering, specific application, and the strength that can release obstacles. The thinking mind uses energy but cannot generate it; energy is generated in the heart (citta) and in the body. Apply energy to empty out the negative and unskillful – the good and bright will arise on its own.
