This site is a hub. It offers access to written teachings by Ajahn Sucitto (me) and information as to upcoming teaching venues; also there are links to where you can obtain audio talks and books, and connect to websites where more of my material, and that of my friends and colleagues, can be found. New articles and books get added from time to time as they are produced.
I am a Buddhist monk (bhikkhu). I entered monastic life in 1975 in Thailand, but since 1978 I’ve been based in Britain. I spent fourteen years training under Ajahn Sumedho, the senior Western disciple of Ajahn Chah, and so I’m part of that lineage of direct practice. The lineage has an umbrella website www:forestsangha.org. I am based at Cittaviveka Monastery in Chithurst, West Sussex, near Petersfield in southern England (www.cittaviveka.org).
A recent addition to this site is an audio version of ‘Where Are You Going‘, the account of the Indian pilgrimage I undertook with Nick Scott in 1990-91. This was delivered in serial form on a weekly basis via a podcast . The series has now been completed, but if you click on this link http://whereareyougoing.podbean.com you can pickup any episodes you may have missed, or download the entire account.
Another podcast is now presenting an interview with myself on the topic of embodied awareness. It is at ‘The Body Knows’
On account of the Covid pandemic, my future teaching venues are uncertain. Currently I am picking up online engagements. Things will change. Meanwhile an updated way to stay in touch with my teachings past, present and future is via Dhamma Tracks – please see below. It is a bi-weekly (so far) mail-out to subscribers that offers a talk, a guided meditation, an article or quoted passage – and notification of upcoming teaching occasions via video-link, i.e. Zoom. Dhamma Tracks is free (of course) and you can easily unsubscribe from it.
