I think that there is some misinformation here. No deep dharma?? Anthony teaches directly out of Pali Canon and encourages students to study Pali Suttas. He studied in Buddhist University in Burma while being a monk. New retreat centre is going to be a Pali study centre. You can check his YouTube channel. And about the ladies... Can you post something like that in the age of Metoo# ??How unethical!!
