Steady State of Pleasure

Next week I’ll be attending (online) Spirit Rock’s Fall Insight retreat, so I won’t be leading the Oct 6 Tuesday Night Insight Zoom group. But the group will still meet and will listen to Ajahn Sucitto’s guided meditation titled: Internal Happiness. (30 min)

Sucitto says, “Meditation offers the opportunity to encourage the body to open into a more steady state of pleasure than is normally attainable through sense contact. This internal happiness has to do with the body’s subtle energy. Guidance is given to sense the subtle body and experience this internal happiness.”

Sounds good, doesn’t it. (It is!)

You can listen on your own any time by clicking on the link above. Or listen with the group on Oct 6, 7:00 pm CT. (Email me here to request the Zoom link.)

Soothing Nervous Energy

I’ll be attending Phillip Moffitt’s retreat on the Nine Bodies next week so I won’t be able to lead the next Tuesday Night Insight group.

But the group will still meet — on Zoom, Aug 11, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm Central Time — and will practice using Ajahn Sucitto’s guided meditation with instructions for: Soothing Nervous Energy through Breathing and Body. (24 min)

Send me an email here if you’d like to attend and I’ll send you the Zoom link.

Attention: Broad and Open, Like a Loop

I won’t be leading DharmaTown’s Tuesday Night Insight Group next week (June 2) because I’ll be attending Phillip Moffitt’s Nine Bodies retreat (May 28-June 4) as part of my teacher training.

But the group will still meet and meditate (on Zoom), using Ajahn Sucitto’s Body Sweeping meditation. (This guided meditation is 32 minutes long with intermittent periods of silence. Click here to listen.)

Sucitto writes: “Body sweeping meditation encourages attention that gathers around an object. Rather than absorbing into phenomena, attention remains broad and open, like a loop.”

Email me here for the NEW Zoom link for DharmaTown’s Tuesday Night Insight Group, which meets every Tuesday from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. The link will be good June through August.

I’ll be back to lead the group again on June 9.

We Practice to Steady the Heart

I won’t be leading the Tuesday Night Insight meditation group next week (April 28) because I’ll be attending Phillip Moffitt’s Nine Bodies online retreat (April 26 to April 30), but the group will still meet and meditate using Jack Kornfield’s 13-minute guided meditation: A Steady Heart in the Time of Coronavirus.

Email me here for the Tuesday Night Insight Zoom link. I’ll be back to lead the group again on Tuesday, May 5.
