Spotlight: A Feast of Wisdom With Five Trailblazers

A few topics in these deep dialogues include: What survives death and where does consciousness reside? While our genes do not change, the way they are expressed may be very much within our control. What are the four paths of wise, effective action–“showing up, paying attention, telling the truth, and being unattached to the outcome”. What is the “implicate order” that forms the basis for bridging science and spirit? These thoughts and questions are just a few of the subjects covered by these 5 wisdom trailblazers on whose shoulders we stand as we explore creating a better world for all.

A Favorite Quote from a New Dimensions Guest : Father Matthew Fox, Ph.D.

God is everything which is good, as I see it, and the goodness which everything has is God. God’s goodness fills all creatures and all blessed works full and endlessly overflows in them. Julian of Norwich, 14th century mystic   “This 14th century mystic has been called the first woman of English letters and one of the first women to write in English.

A Favorite Quote from a New Dimensions Guest : Martin Shaw, Ph.D.

In the lean years who needs poets? But poets as you say are like the holy disciple of the Wild One [Dionysus], who used to stroll over the fields through the whole divine night. Friedrich Holderlin, (1770-1843) German poet and Philosopher   “This is from a poem called Bread And Wine Part Seven by Friedrich Holderlin, one of the great Romantic poets, translated by Robert Bly. I just go to that for a sheer charge of delight and electricity. And that’s all I have to say about it.”   Martin Shaw, Ph.D. scholar of myth, acclaimed storyteller, and author of

The Business Of Stories Is Waking Up with Martin Shaw, Ph.D.

Shaw is our guide in examining our broken relationship with the world. He shares this advice about deep listening. “If myth is the way that the earth thinks, I needed to listen deeply to forests and to rivers and mountains and to gullies and to open more land, to see the stories that were trying to disclose themselves to me all the time.” He uses ancient European myths that concern our own inner, wild twin. He speaks about the deepest need of humankind which concerns relatedness, relatedness with awareness. He helps us along this path by sharing story. He says, “Ancient stories rarely

Spotlight: Conversations at the Threshold of Death

It is said that the next frontier is the exploration of consciousness and that the material world may reflect only small portions of the universe. Often the death of someone we love shifts reality as we’ve known it and brings forth an opening just wide enough for us to begin seeking a deeper truth, a multi-dimensional one.
