Wisdom of the Body

Jan 5, 2024

Wellness author Heather Grzych interviews Richard Dixey about meditation as a fundamental necessity of being human. As a Buddhist teacher with a background as a biotech CEO, Richard discusses why, even though science is very valuable and useful, people are being duped every day into believing that science is the ultimate truth - when it’s actually the status quo. You’ll learn how long is a good time to meditate, and why it’s essential that educated people practice it in today’s world to live a fully human life.


Richard Dixey, PhD, is the author of Three Minutes a Day: A Fourteen Week Course to Learn Meditation and Transform Your Life and a senior faculty member at Dharma College in Berkeley, California. A research scientist and a lifelong student of Buddhism who holds advanced degrees in biophysics and the history and philosophy of science, Dixey directed a bioelectronic research unit at a London hospital before becoming CEO of his own biotech company. He moved to the US in 2007 to devote himself to teaching meditation, deepening his own practice, and running the Light of Buddhadharma Foundation in India with his wife Wangmo, the eldest daughter of the well-known Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku.
