60 Mindful Minutes

Sep 19, 2023

Richard Dixey, PhD, a scientist and lifelong student of Asian philosophy, believes that we don’t have to sit in lotus pose for twenty minutes or more to feel the benefits of meditation. In his new book, Three Minutes a Day: A Fourteen-Week Course to Learn Meditation and Transform Your Life, he introduces a convenient approach to cultivating a daily meditation practice, requiring just three minutes each day. Delving into the creation of our experiences by our senses, their processing in the brain, and the resulting construction of our worldview, Richard explores how we can establish a solid foundation for profound insight in almost no time at all.
