POLLINATING THE BLOSSOMS OF PRACTICAL WISDOM

It was most gratifying to see how many of you downloaded the free Joseph Campbell 13-part series of interviews as well as the four programs about angels in our lives. They inspired me when first broadcasted and, as my life has changed and my consciousness has expanded, they continue to speak to me in new ways. I pray this is true for you as well. If you, dear listener, have been inspired in some way through the programs, I encourage you to consider becoming a financial supporter of New Dimensions. Just like the bee moves from flower to flower, pollinating, pollinating

Editor’s Desk: Encounter With A Horse In A Bar

    As I steered the car into my designated parking spot in my apartment complex, my cell phone rang. My whole body was smiling as the name Anne Palenske, my dear childhood friend, flashed on my dashboard screen. We don’t talk often, however, when we do speak our conversations are lively, full of laughter, and great memories. As I reached to press the button on my steering wheel to accept the call, I was transported to an earlier memory of Anne. Anne and I share a love of horses. In fact, it was she who introduced me to horses

The Soft Alert, Steadiness of being a Ninja in Our Practices of Wholeness with Rick Hanson, Ph.D.

The study of meditation has demonstrated that sustained, long-term practice can alter the brain markedly. These changes bring greater resilience and well-being. It’s said that even brief meditative practices can change areas of your brain involved with attention, body awareness, emotional regulation, and a sense of self. This deep dialogue explores some practical practices of how the brain, mindfulness, and meditation are interconnected and how these practices can free us from needless suffering and conflict. Hanson reminds us to not “add-on” to the inevitable pain of life. “The end of suffering is to replace it with love, wisdom, and joy. As

A Favorite Quote from a New Dimensions Guest : Rick Hanson

I do not know if there are enlightened beings but I am sure that there are enlightened moments. Suzuki Roshi (1904-1971) Sōtō Zen monk and teacher who helped popularize Zen Buddhism in the United States Think not lightly of good, saying it will not come to me.

Whether it’s taking in these enlightened moments or whether it is drop by drop cultivating the capacity

How Words Can Change the Outcome of a Crisis Situation with Judith Simon Prager, Ph.D.

A Favorite Quote from a New Dimensions Guest : Father Matthew Fox

When psalms surprise me with their music And antiphons turn to rum The Spirit sings: the bottom drops out of my soul And from the center of my cellar, Love, louder than thunder Opens a heaven of naked air. The opening of a poem written by the Trappist monk, Thomas Merton (1915-1968) “This is a quote about what prayer does to the soul. It’s hard to talk about these things because, as William James says, one of the signs of mystics is ineffability. So, it takes a poet, like Merton, to give us language for what happens to us. I
