Dr. Richard Dixey is a scientist, philosopher, and Buddhist scholar and teacher. He is particularly interested in exploring the interface between scientific and spiritual perspectives, and making the traditional Buddhist teachings accessible and relevant to modern western society. In his new book Three Minutes a Day: A Fourteen-Week Course to Learn Meditation and Transform Your Life, Dr. Dixey, he makes a bold claim that in just three minutes a day, for fourteen weeks, you can generate real insight into personal experience that no amount of reading or learning can replicate. In this conversation, Dr. Dixey and Richard Smoley, editor of Quest: Journal of the Theosophical Society in America will explore Dixey’s three-minute program, the power of Tibetan Buddhism, and the teachings of the influential lama Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche.
