New Dimensions Magnificent Team

New Dimensions has a small but most extraordinary team. On April 1, I had a total shoulder replacement surgery. During the month of March, I worked ahead of time to get all the various things done that I needed to turn into my team in order for them to continue to do what they do so magnificently in the month of April. I am so grateful for their diligence, dedication, and excellence in carrying on with all the details behind the scenes that make this program series available to all of you. The surgery was successful, I’m not in pain,

Editor’s Desk: Ralph Metzner and Light Meditation

There are two special people, Ralph Metzner and Charles Tart, who remain part of the origin story of the work that I have been doing for the past 48 years. It was 1973 when radio station KPFA held a fundraising event at Zellerbach Auditorium in Berkeley on Sunday, March 4. The speakers were Henry Puharich, M.D., Ralph Metzner, Ph.D., Ken Johnson, Charles Tart, Ph.D., Ramamurti S. Mishra, M.D., and Shafica Karagulla, M.D. The event was entitled Parapsychology, Frontiers of Consciousness.

A Favorite Quote From A New Dimensions Guest: Allen Klein

At the moment of commitment, the entire universe conspires to assist you. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) German poet “I like this quote—which has also been attributed to W.H. Murray—because I’ve had a lot of friends and people who say I want to do something. I want to write a book, for instance, and then they never start the book or follow through. But I also found that when I put out in the world what I want to accomplish, other people get behind me and help me. I don’t quite know why, but they assist me and that is

Spotlight: Wholeness, Creativity and Quantum Reality with David Bohm

In preparing for the many interviews with new and upcoming guests, we notice that many of them refer to the work of this brilliant physicist, David Bohm. Over a seven-year period from 1983 to 1990, Michael Toms had the extraordinary experience of sitting down in deep dialogue with this renowned physicist, the late David Bohm, Ph.D. Bohm was a colleague of Oppenheimer and Einstein, and one of the foremost theoretical physicists of his generation. He was also one of the most influential theorists of the emerging paradigm through which the world is increasingly viewed. You may have noticed that this

Resisting The Foreclosure Of The Pleasure Of Life

  New Dimensions has been an integral part of the culture that I feel has been most significant in my journey for several decades. I feel honored to have been associated with the program over these years with one of my recordings, Icarus, being used as the theme song for its on-going program series. I revere very deeply all the years this extraordinary spectrum of programs—on all kinds of vital subjects—continues to be put forth.   Paul Winter, saxophonist, composer, bandleader,  pioneer of world earth music,  and seven-times Grammy winner   As a valued listener, you know that New Dimensions

Redeeming the Body and Its Hungers with Self-Love with David Bedrick, JD, DIPL PW

David Bedrick has been called a detective of the human heart and the human spirit and a detective of the language of our bodies and how they are speaking to us—not pathologically—but with deep intelligence. In this deep dialogue we explore body-weight, diet, shame, and deep hunger. It does not feature any theory of weight loss. It does not include the seven steps, phases, or foods that will help guide our diet strategy. However, it does explore an alternative to looking at our bodies through the lens of the brutal forces of cultural bias that highlight the personal shaming that

A Favorite Quote From A New Dimensions Guest: David Bedrick, J.D., Dipl. PW

  [S]ometimes it is necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness. Excerpt from poem Saint Francis and the Sow by Galway Kinnell (1927-2014) Pulitzer Prize poet.   “I love the idea of reteaching because sometimes we forget we’re lovely. We forget our faces, our bellies, our hungers. We forget and we need to be retaught and Galway, in his much longer poem, starts by saying: The bud stands for all things, even for those things that don’t flower, for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing; though sometimes it is necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness I love the sense
