Science and Technology
Paul Richards is an extraordinary educator and lecturer in the field of advanced Attention, Martial Arts, and Perception.
Paul has a professional background in Aerospace and Technology. He is an accomplished martial artist and holds the black belt rank of fourth dan, and the title of Renshi (teacher of warriors). He has been actively practicing martial arts for 42 years.
Throughout the 1980's as an application engineer and high reliability project manager, Paul contributed to the Space Shuttle program, the Supercollider, the Keck Telescope, and other advanced technical projects. He served as...
...vice president of two aerospace companies, and as president of a third.
In 1988, Paul resigned from his aerospace position to form a training facility, the Senté Center, to advance the scientific understanding of extraordinary perception, and the fields and forces that underlie human interactions and performance. He began consulting on ways to enhance professional and personal presence, and performance.
The Study of Consciousness
From earliest childhood Paul experienced visual impressions of energy fields that appeared to suffuse people, as well as frequent spontaneous episodes of precognition. He was technically oriented, and by his teenaged years he recorded his observations in a notebook he carried with him, which could be compared to predicted events as they occurred. By his mid twenties he had built up enough data that he provisionally accepted the existence of non-physical field interactions.
He sought further concrete training and so participated in an embryonic research study of extrasensory phenomena at the UCLA Neuropsychology Laboratory. After his period at UCLA, Paul continued active study with a psychologist and consciousness researcher. Later mentors included two advanced practitioners of the meditative arts of Ramana Maharshi and Sai Baba. He received thirteen years of highly specialized individual training in advanced attention and perception.
During Paul's years at the University of California, he joined the world of Shotokan Karate and became a lifelong devotee of martial arts, training under the auspices of the late tenth degree black belt, Hidetaka Nishiyama and his proteges, Sensei'sTokojiru Mori and Steve Ubl.
In later years he trained extensively with Sensei George Clark and with Sensei Aaron Ortega, the son of noted martial artist Sensei Jerry Piddington.
Music, Writing, and Radio
Paul is an accomplished musician and the author of several books (both fiction and nonfiction). He also penned numerous training manuals mapping the energetic systems of humans and the environment, and a number of technical articles in the field of aerospace technology.
As a young man, he worked in the American music industry, producing, performing, and writing for Ranwood Records and independently. He had material published by Elton John’s Rocket Records, among others. For five years he produced the Max Image Radio Theater, which was distributed over the National Public Radio satellite system.
The Sente Center
Paul established an independent consulting practice while living in New Zealand, and later moved to Ashland, Oregon. There, together with his wife, lecturer and former Nurse Practitioner Patty Richards, he founded the Senté Center in 1992. Among their specialties is teaching the energetics of extraordinary relationship—about which the two co-wrote the book, Wild Attraction.
Currently, Paul lectures full time at the Center, produces educational programs, and has created an extensive archival library on attention, perception, and profound movement. He continues to offer individual and group training in the fusion of science, art, and the intelligently mapped extraordinary capacities of human beings
