A Favorite Quote from a New Dimensions Guest : Shannon Sullivan

  Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

We tell ourselves stories like: “I’m ugly, I’ll never succeed, nobody loves me…We build these houses out of stories and take up residence in them and they’re invisible to us so that

A Favorite Quote from a New Dimensions Guest : Anton Schwartz

I don’t know who discovered water but I know it wasn’t a fish. Father John Culkin (1928-1993) of Fordham University and a colleague of Marshall McLuhan “This quote has often been attributed to Marshall McLuhan but the real author was Fr. John Culkin who was a colleague of McLuhan’s and a big force in the media world. This world was subsequently known as media ecology and is characterized by how media surrounds us and affects our thinking. Just like anything else in which we’re immersed, we can’t really see it until we have a different perspective. Visionary people are able
