Richard serves as a research consultant studying the iRest Meditation protocol that he’s developed (Integrative Restoration ~ iRest). It is a modern adaptation of the ancient nondual practice of Yoga Nidra, researching its efficacy on health, healing, and well-being with diverse populations. These include active-duty soldiers, veterans, children, youth and college students, seniors, the homeless, the incarcerated, and people experiencing issues such as sleep disorders, PTSD, traumatic brain injury, chronic pain, chemical dependency, and anxiety. Richard also contributes to research on iRest’s efficacy for enhancing resiliency, well-being, and compassion.
In 1983, after decades of searching, Richard met his spiritual mentor, Jean Klein. Klein introduced him to the non-path, non-method, and non-goal realization of nonduality. Richard now shares the paradox of nondual instruction through international trainings and meditation retreats on awakening, and the integration of enlightened living into daily life.
Richard Miller was also our 2017 Guest Speaker at the Australasian Yoga Therapy Conference.
