Achieve a Clearer Mind and Better Life in 3 Minutes a Day with Richard Dixey PhD

Achieve a Clearer Mind and Better Life in 3 Minutes a Day with Richard Dixey PhD

The practice of meditation was developed in Asia by monks over two and a half thousand years ago. Their practices offered them an understanding of their own consciousness en route to enlightenment. Today amidst a barrage of technological distractions and uncertainty about the practice, meditation is elusive for many. If there was a streamlined process for the practice of meditation that took people out of their mind maps could we better understand our personal experiences? For tips on how to achieve a clearer mind and a better life, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with Dr. Richard Dixey, a biophysicist, lifelong student of Buddhism, and author. He shares his philosophy and asserts that meditation is a basic life skill that should be practiced in schools. Richard’s book, Three Minutes a Day: A Fourteen-Week Course to Learn Meditation and Transform Your Life, offers a new way of understanding the age-old practice of meditation.
