Interesting and very unusual!
Even the last three bell rings are somewhat unusual.

Haven't listened to this yet but just wanted to pop in and say that his method for metta meditation (which he has described in his other talks) is extremely powerful and works better for me than repeating the well known sayings (may I be happy, may x be happy, etc). Good stuff.

This article may also be of interest:
Learning meditation from the Buddha: a meeting with Ven Analayo

I met German-born Analayo some years ago when he was living a life of intensive meditation and study in a small retreat centre in Sri Lanka. He told me how his study of the Buddha’s original meditation teaching had led him to question established approaches to practice.
Since then, he has published an acclaimed work on the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha’s main teaching on mindfulness, taken full Bhikkhu ordination, published many groundbreaking essays on Pali Buddhism, especially comparisons between the Pali Suttas and the Chinese versions, the Agamas and become a widely respected scholar and academic. As this interview shows, he is above all a deeply devoted Dharma practitioner.

Thanks.
I like what he says In this article. He says:

An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as ‘concentration’, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps ‘unification’ is a better rendition, as samadhi means ‘to bring together’. Deep samadhi isn’t at all stiff. It’s a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience.

I've been meaning to post for a while that I found this guided meditation very interesting. Certainly a much different approach from what I'm used to, and it's good to be aware that there are many ways of approaching satipatthana.
