Editor’s Desk: When a Shock or a Setback is a Gift

Today’s news reporting is relentlessly bombarding us with pictures and stories of shocking events such as school shootings, the repeal of protective regulations that safeguard our common good, incidents of racism, and other reports of discrimination. Our serenity takes a hit as it is tossed hither and yon on the relentless, churning sea of front page news. In preparing for my conversation with Terry Patten, author of A New Republic of the Heart: An Ethos for Revolutionaries, I was struck by a quote he shares from the late George Leonard, a pioneer of the human potential movement, who used the

The Immense Intelligence Of Cosmic Consciousness with Ricardo Horacio Stocker, Ph.D.

An awakening is taking place planet-wide and it is a channeling of healing, peace, and higher consciousness. Stocker suggests that we are not alone in this evolution of awareness. He states that there are the two kinds of intelligences – horizontal and vertical. He explains, “In today’s world we are flooded with information of all kinds . . .it’s surface information flow and can be very useful. That’s the horizontal intelligence. The vertical intelligence is when you are in touch with yourself, your body, but also your spirit. The depth and the height of your own being is where you are

The F-Word: Reconsidering Faith with Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel

For some faith is an outdated, even dogmatic idea. Namgyel sees it as “not something you have or don’t have, faith is a way of being in relationship to the world around you.” She refers to it as “faithing”. This dialogue takes a deep dive into the Buddhist principle of mutual causality and dependent origination. She says “everything leans” and explains in greater detail the following: “This is a very, very deep principle. The Sanskrit word for it is Pratityasamutpada, which is often translated as dependent arising or dependent origination. I like Joanna Macy’s translation, which is ‘mutual causality’: Everything is bumping up

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

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

Exploring The Secrets Of Light And Consciousness with Jacob Liberman, O.D., Ph.D.

Liberman makes the provocative statement that “Anything that catches your eye is actually looking for you.” This leads him to speak about living in a choiceless way and following what attracts your eye. He says, “You see what grabs your attention is being animated by the same thing that animates the timing of the rising and setting of the sun, the beating of our hearts . . . I’ve come to have such respect for the timing of things that the moment it comes I automatically respond to it . . .Life provides a way for us to continually experience meeting things,

The Path to Making a Difference

David Isaacs, co-author with his partner Juanita Brown of The World Café: Shaping Our Futures Through Conversations That Matter, has said, “In a world that is deeply challenging, I believe New Dimensions is a very important force in presenting programming that relates stories that share hope, possibility, contribution, and service in the world. The stories of despair, suffering, and destruction are myriad so, more than ever, we need the kinds of discourse heard on New Dimensions that rightly gives people a sense that ‘I can do something. I can participate, I can engage in activities in my own home, my
