Your Ideas Are Needed

“I’ve been listening to New Dimensions for nearly 40 years and it has been important to me. I know it’s been important to many others because we live in a world that is filled with of fear greed. We don’t have a clear compelling vision for what’s possible for us as humanity, what’s possible for our culture, what’s possible for a healthy planet. We need programs like New Dimensions that can articulate a vision with visionaries who see what’s possible. New Dimensions presents a positive vision that we can embrace and which is so critically needed in the world today.”

Finding Grace from the Corner of Our Eye

In a recent interview with Ron Pevny, which will be airing in September, we talked about the recognition of moments of grace. I pointed out that these precious moments are unpredictable and it is difficult to notice them when our lives are in a frenzy of busy-ness. When focusing straight on at the world, we may not register the illusive moments of grace, which fly by so fast and with such stealth that they may only be caught out of the corner of our eye. Pevny suggests that being in nature can help us to recognize more easily the wealth

A Deepening Year In Solitude with Robert Kull, Ph.D.

What would lead a person to choose to live alone for a year on a small, remote island off the coast of southern Chile? How would one even go about planning the enormous logistics of such a stay? What is it like to truly notice how, as humans, we are constantly shifting from a sense of isolation into the experience of freedom and belonging? What was most challenging about basically disappearing into the wilderness, and living in solitude for a full year. With total candor Kull shares the pains and joys of such an adventure. Besides facing the elements, he

Huston Smith on New Dimensions

“I’ve become, over the years, an enthusiastic supporter of what New Dimensions is trying to do because unlike all the mergers of media and agencies, with all their subservience to what is called the conventional wisdom of our time, (which alas, reduces the human spirit, making it dependent and closed in by the world of matter), the New Dimensions series breaks through that—that tortoise shell that blocks our view of transcendence. That blockage is disastrous because like sunflowers our spirits turn toward the sun, but if we’re closed off from the sun, what chance is there to flourish? You, Michael

Surviving And Thriving When Times Are Tough with Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.

We live in challenging times. Beyond life’s typical ups and downs, there seem to be an overabundance of obstacles each of us must overcome. At times the stress feels overwhelming, and we struggle to find the balance we desperately need to get through it all. In this conversation with beloved teacher and healer Joan Borysenko, she turns her wise attention to how we can develop the resilience to stay on course no matter what life throws our way. She explains, “Resilience is that recognition that it’s not the end of the world. Furthermore, resilience is more than just bouncing back

Spotlight: R. Buckminster “Bucky” Fuller

Buckminster Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983), affectionately called “Bucky”, was an engineer, author, designer, inventor, and futurist. He published more than 30 books, inventing and popularizing terms such as “Spaceship Earth” and synergetics. He is best known for his invention of the geodesic dome. The carbon molecules buckminsterfullerenes, so named because they resemble geodesic domes, are also known by scientists as “buckyballs.” New Dimensions had the enormous privilege of sitting down with Bucky on many occasions. He had a way of answering an inquiry in detail. His mind was so encompassing he never talked in the kind of sound-bytes we’ve

Be a Trim Tab for Inspiration

At the creation of New Dimensions Radio we were privileged to spend some quality time with R. Buckminster Fuller, affectionately called Bucky. He was the inventor of the geodesic dome and coined the term “Spaceship Earth.” His innovative and positive vision of the future was infectious and remains with us to this very day. He often talked about how we, as little individuals, can and do make a difference. He often used the metaphor of the trim tab factor. To understand this phenomenon, he reminded us that we live in a complex, adaptive system where everything is intricately interconnected. It

Reawakening The Spirituality Of Men with Father Matthew Fox, Ph.D.

Matthew Fox has had his finger on the pulse of western spirituality for decades. When he casts his keen eye on the state of spirituality among men in the twenty-first century, you can be sure he’ll discern the unspoken woundedness, yearning, and passion of the modern warrior. He explains, “The modern age taught us that the universe was a machine, that the sky was just a junkyard for inert, mechanical, cold, dead parts. So man had to hunker down to fit into the boxes that the industrial revolution offered us. This is one of the main reasons for the violence
