She's a classically trained musician, and practised for many years in London as a Registered Music Therapist, working creatively with a broad range of client groups. She has a natural affinity with, and is drawn to sound worlds and silence. Suchitta was ordained in 1990, and spent two years working at the Wellington Buddhist Centre in New Zealand and six years at the Triratna Centre in Brighton. She is a Private Preceptor and has a particular interest in Dharma study and the place/space of chanting and mantra in spiritual practice.
