Richard introduces the Triple Flame technique

The Triple Flame

Transform your day with the Art of Contemplation

The Triple Flame’s pausing technique involves pausing for 3 minutes every 3 hours, alongside many people spread across the globe. Regular but short pausing will infuse your busy day with the contemplative state, which can be an incredibly enriching experience. Contemplate with others, and deepen your joy into the silence and beauty that we often miss in our busy lives.

How does it work?

You can use this timer app to send you a reminder to pause and enter the field of contemplation at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock each day during your daylight hours. The gentle circadian rhythm of this process soon begins to saturate your daily life and after several weeks you may find you are attuning to this contemplation at a deeper, unconscious level.

Whatever you may be doing at these times, the Triple Flame invites you to spend these three minutes in a contemplative frame of mind. If you are able to physically stop what you are doing, then you can do so. If, however, you cannot physically pause your current activity, then you can at least continue what you are doing with an increased sense of self-awareness.

This book reminds me every day how l want to be in the world.’
