Three Minutes a Day: A Fourteen-Week Course to Learn Meditation and Transform Your Life by Richard Dixey

Three Minutes a Day

Publisher: 2023

Three Minutes a Day makes a bold claim: in just three minutes a day, for fourteen weeks — less than five hours total — you can generate real insight into personal experience that no amount of reading or learning can replicate.

While meditation is known for promoting balance and well-being in our busy lives, it’s typically associated with long periods of sitting. Dr. Richard Dixey presents a different approach, one that uses short exercises to stabilize mental experience. He lays out a direct path to clarity of mind, stress relief, sharper thinking, improved concentration, and enhanced creativity that can be followed from anywhere, no matter how busy your schedule. If you’re one of the millions of people interested in meditation but short on time, Three Minutes a Day is the perfect way to learn this valuable practice and incorporate it into your everyday life.


“Research scientist and longtime Buddhist practitioner Richard Dixey offers readers some ‘meditation experiments’ to help us to cultivate deepening practice and insights. The book is designed for the true beginner who wonders, ‘Why meditate at all?’ and for whom a regular daily practice comes most smoothly in secular, bite-sized pieces. . . . This is a satisfying and thorough read grounded in practical exercises and explanations for why they work, offering solid, simple tools centered on the body and awareness.” Lion’s Roar
