Editor’s Desk: Playing Dress-Up and Flowers

Playing dress-up – to luxuriate in colors, the fabrics, the endless choices. Sometimes when I pick out something flowing it reminds me of the late 1950s film with Rosalind Russell playing “Auntie Mame” sweeping down a spiral staircase with gossamer robes swirling about her. Color has actual healing qualities. Sometimes I feel like gray. What does gray mean? Actually, oftentimes I choose gray. Why am I so attracted to gray? Gray the color of mist – The color of low iron clouds in a drizzling rain – The color of roly-poly bugs that live under rocks and when the rock

Exploring the Realm of Synchronicity with Sky Nelson-Isaacs

Even though classical science has not produced a good explanation for synchronicity, we all have had a direct experience of it at various moments in our lives. Our guest today tells us that synchronicity is defined as a meaningful coincidence that is personal and that it is nature’s language for communicating directly with us. He writes: “As you develop your personal sense of the meaning of events in your life, you enter into a cosmic dance with the divine that is totally unique to you.” He illustrates the idea that life knows what we are seeking so there’s an affinity, an attracting

Spotlight: Coping with Illness and Dis-ease

How “waking down” can effectively lead us to “waking up.” These topics and many more will be explored in these four programs specially selected from the New Dimensions archive.

True Health Care – Reversing Chronic Illnesses with Roberto Tostado, M.D.

Despite ever more sophisticated medical technology and more expensive healthcare, chronic diseases are increasing. If mainstream medicine is doing its job, why are the rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rising instead of decreasing? Years ago people died from infections, plagues, and flus. It can be said that today we die from toxins in food and the toxic side effects of drugs. Obesity and diabetes have become the new plagues of our time. What can we do? How can we turn our focus from a sentence of perpetually taking more and more drugs to creating a new model of

Spotlight: Buddhism and the Challenges of Everyday Life

According to the Buddha, the path of kindness is the path of happiness. Because this is easier said than done, there are scores of long-term meditators who have come to realize that spiritual practice does not always eliminate the psychological problems they hoped it would.

Pilar Jennings, Ph.D. gives us insights into the difference between bringing our personal baggage to a teacher or to a therapist. Beloved Buddhist teacher Sylvia Boorstein, Ph.D. brings warmth, humor, and real-life honesty

Hawaii: Diving into Its History and Culture with Kaliko Beamer-Trapp

Kaliko says when you learn a new language it changes you into a different person. He says of learning the Marquesan language: “It has its own personality. When I’m over there I’m like a different person. I might look the same on the outside but I feel that I express myself differently. I express myself the way they do. I change my intonation, the pitch in my voice, and the strength of my voice as well as the way my eyes move and the expressions that I make. I change to match that environment and what the people there are like
