A proponent for natural healing for 30 years, he completed his doctoral internship under the direction of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the nationally acclaimed Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. He is certified as a Hippocrates Health Educator and also lectures on enzyme nutrition, the bio-chemistry of foods, and exercise physiology. Dr. Riley received his Master's degree at the University of Florida. He taught creative writing and communications in colleges and universities, and currently conducts workshops in Healing Chi Kung and tai chi, both in the United States and Mexico.
His unique combination of skills as a journalist, professor, therapist and speaker give him the ability to simplify difficult concepts, allowing people to put them to use successfully in their daily lives. He also served as Director of the South Florida Stress Reduction Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Dr. Riley's research led him to the curanderos and shamanic healers in Mexico where he accessed centuries-old holistic healing traditions. In November 2002, Dr. Riley began living in Mexico part of the year where he facilitates week-long stress reduction vacations, where he is also engaged in a research project with a plant that promotes nutritional and medicinal benefits.
