"Paul's Infinite Moment classes are always fascinating, challenging, and fun. Paul brings a way of looking at and interpreting common motions that is utterly unique. He helps us experience the extraordinary power possible within such mundane actions as walking, throwing a ball, shaking hands, and speaking.
As a black belt in Shotokan Karate, I have found that Paul's classes make me aware of levels of mastery and nuance of movement and energetics that I didn't realize were possible. Infinite Moment shows us how to live more fully, with greater embodiment and energetic empowerment."

"Tuesday’s Infinite Moment was experientially one of the best ever, in my view. The relationships among stillness and motion and the physical, imaginary, and nonordinary realms -- and the foundational concept of Infinite Moment -- have never been more clear."

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
“I have participated in Paul Richard's Infinite Moment practice, both in person and on line, for the last 2 years. The teachings in the classroom experientially expand my awareness of energetics in the moment, and strengthen my sense of personal empowerment.
Infinite Moment practices offer practical tools that support the ability to stay home in the Center of our own experience while playing in relational fields of connection with others. These practices are life enhancing, life expanding, supportive, and fun!”

"What fun in IM! We are so lucky! It really helps too to have everything tied to the context of those three guiding principles. Thank you for helping us change a little bit each week!"

“My biggest aha! moments during Infinite Moment have come from seeing in others and sensing in myself how powerful it is to incorporate the elements Paul points at that dramatically shift the way we move.
The layers of awareness that are taught in this training produce remarkable changes in our presence and how we walk in the world and engage with the world. We are more grounded, fluid, empowered, and responsive to the environment around us, to name a few. It’s a dazzling thing to behold.”

"An infinite thank you for an especially meaningful, practical, inspiring, expanding, wonderful, deeply activating while subtle in onset movement, satisfying, fulfilling, encouraging INFINITE MOMENT WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are something else! Truly!
I would so enjoy being able to fully 3D hologram you into so many others' lives as individuals and as an extraordinary couple. So much respect for you both and honoring your lives, sending you the magic of the mountain, the bliss of the calm sea and the delight in the symphony of jungle birds awakening to a fresh new morning,

“I want to thank you again for all of the elements of this experience you are making possible. Tonight in class you were both teaching me what I have wanted/needed my whole life - this experience of centering, which is beginning to make some cameo appearances in my waking life these last few months (thanks to you). Big habit change to work on. It is absolutely unprecedented and amazing to have moments of this!!
I know people come to you for all sorts of fancy things, like 'seeing', but I tell you... just to walk the earth in that way is in a way the fulfillment of a lifetime. Not to mention, the relief of a lifetime.
SK Acupuncturist, Ashland, OR.
"I want to thank you for both the Infinite Moment class and the amazing weekend. It is obvious how much thought and time you put into each class, and I wanted to let you know that they have touched me deeply.
Today was the first time I have ever stretched with my center connected to the earth. Even the brief exercises we did today make me realize viscerally how utterly and amazingly different everything can be with an awareness of energy and intent. I am so looking forward to experiencing more of the class and more of my life.
