‘Unrestricted Awareness’ – A Two Day Retreat with Ajahn Sucitto [Online Event]
July 18 @ 9:00 am - July 19 @ 5:30 pm
In general most of our energy and attention flows through a network of mental patterns and programs that we experience as ‘me’ , ‘myself’ ‘I’. Like railway lines through a land, these overused circuits only occupy a fraction of our total potential. The weekend offers a focus on the lost territory.
This will be similar to retreats held at Sunyata except online.
To book a place on this retreat please email us at: [email protected] Please also refer to our guidelines for attending online retreats.
Beginning Saturday morning and ending Sunday afternoon, we will take this opportunity to practice using the online platform Zoom.
Booking is required and a link to the zoom meeting will be sent to you closer to the time.
Attendance for both days is strongly recommended. However if you really can’t commit to two days, it’s possible to attend for Saturday only.
SCHEDULE ( Sat&Sun )
Break 11:30am – 2:00pm
Ajahn Sucitto was, between 1992 and 2014, the abbot of Cittaviveka, Chithurst Buddhist Monastery in the UK. Ajahn was born in London and ordained in Thailand in March 1976. He returned to Britain in 1978 and took up training under Ajahn Sumedho at the Hampstead Buddhist Vihara. In 1979 he was one of the small group of monks, led by Ajahn Sumedho, who established Cittaviveka, Chithurst Buddhist Monastery, in West Sussex. In 1981 he was sent up to Northumberland to set up a small monastery in Harnham, which subsequently became Aruna Ratanagiri. In 1984 he accompanied Ajahn Sumedho in establishing Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in Hertfordshire.
