Special Project in Need of Funding

It is becoming imperative that we upgrade the main computer for New Dimensions. It is now over 7 years old and is not robust enough to keep up with the demands of our growing technology requirements. The challenge with upgrading the computer is that it will involve upgrading to a new operating system. Upgrading to a new operating system means that our database software will need upgrading as well – a multi-step process that will likely take weeks to accomplish with many trouble-shooting sessions needed. I know that, at first glance, these details may not be all that interesting or

Humanity’s Creative Spirit

Taking a break from the relentless torrent of political news, I recently tuned in to an interview that Christiane Amanpour conducted on PBS with historians David Olusoga and Simon Schama, the principal contributors to an extraordinary and far ranging TV series Civilizations, a PBS/BBC collaboration that examines the formative role of art and the creative imagination in the forging of humanity itself. Schama made the following comment: “We’re all so busy building fences around ourselves . . . .Mono mania exists. . . There are all sorts of ways in which you can shut down openness, which is the lifeblood,

A Scientific Approach To Magic with Dean Radin, Ph.D.

In this far ranging dialogue, scientist Radin separates magic into three categories: divination, force of will, and theurgy (evoking spirits – God force – through ceremony). Divination would include such things as tarot cards, rolling dice, and runes. He says of the other two: There is the “force of will in which your intentions impress into the world and manifest things – shape the world somehow. The third category is theurgy, which is a word that roughly means ‘God work’ but the connotation is that you can make the gods work for you. In the traditional magical ceremonial context, it’s evoking spirits and getting them

In a Dark Wood with Anthony Lawlor

Former guest Anthony Lawlor shared this wonderful story with us. “One night I was driving through Iowa and Michael Toms was interviewing David Whyte on New Dimensions. They were talking about Dante. I was in the mid-point of my life and had come to a [metaphoric] dark wood. This conversation was so resonant with where I was at in my life; it was such a gift to hear that discussion about the human experience. I had never thought about it in that way. But, you know, it was just absolutely vital to my life experience.” Anthony Lawlor, architect and author
