Making a Difference Toward a Thriving and Sustainable World

“New Dimensions is the most important radio conversation taking place in today’s world. It’s the voices of the teachers, the mentors, the masters, and the global citizens of our time who can guide and nurture us towards a better world. I’m privileged to be a member of New Dimensions and to be one of the people whose voice is carried by their programs. I think the New Dimensions library of voices, historical and otherwise, could be the greatest living archive in the world today. Michael and Justine Toms and their team produce brilliant programming, the kind of programming that really,

Editor’s Desk: Serenade of the Flies

One spring, my friend, the late Sedonia Cahill invited me to join her on a vision quest she would be leading the following summer. It was pretty easy to say yes because I knew that any adventure headed up by Sedonia was bound to be exciting. Besides, spending a couple of days in nature seemed like a good idea—some of my fondest memories are of camping in the mountains with friends and family—so, at the very least, the invitation held the potential of a very pleasant trip.  I got my first inkling that this trip was likely to be more

A Mysterious Illness: Parasites, Facebook, And Other Things with Gabrielle Glancy

For close to three years Glancy suffered from a debilitating illness. She describes her attempts to get help from doctors as frustrating, exhausting and invalidating. Despite her profound weakness, she sought help from many health practitioners, hoping for one of them to believe that what she was experiencing was real, and to have an answer. Glancy was subjected to numerous tests such as CT scans, EEGs, EKGs, colonoscopies and more. Still, the diagnosis remained elusive. She discovered that tracking what was drawing her attention offered hints to what was going on inside her body. Ultimately, despite the advances in western

A Favorite Quote From A New Dimensions Guest: Jacob Israel Liberman, O.D., Ph.D.

My life is my message. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1883-1944) Indian activist, leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule   “When Gandhi finished giving a talk to thousands of people in India, he got on the train and as the train started moving away, the people were waving and he was waving back to the crowds. All of a sudden a journalist starts running along with the train and he says, ‘Mr. Gandhi, Mr. Gandhi, what’s your message for the people?’ And Gandhi said, ‘My life is my message.’ That’s one of the most meaningful quotes for me because

Walking the Virtual Corridors with Thought Leaders

  I think the need and the uniqueness of New Dimensions is more acute now than ever. We’re in an age now where truth itself is under attack, where so much of media is about what they call generating content, content providers. That phrase content provider, to me sounds like we’re churning out stuff to fill up people’s eyes and ears for the sake of churning out stuff. The opposite of that is what’s done here at New Dimensions. They are producing shows that focus on what is real, what is precious, what is deeply necessary for humans to live fulfilled,

Developing Our Natural Resilience with Linda Graham

Graham assures us that we can rewire neural networks in our brain and build resilience to the point that positive emotions become almost a default reaction. Positive emotions are natural in easy times but more difficult to evoke in hard times. Resilience and positive emotions are inseparable. Linda Graham explains how developing habits such as mindfulness, self-compassion, and body awareness can help us learn to naturally respond with grace and skill when we are under pressure. She explains that having a regular practice of bringing up positive emotions when negative feelings arise weakens those negative feelings, making resilience easier and

A Favorite Quote From A New Dimensions Guest: Ora Nadrich

We can’t solve our problems with the same thinking that created it. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) Theoretical physicist   As someone who works with transforming our negative and fear-based thoughts, this quote is very inspiring to me. I believe that transformational thinking is the only way that we can change, not only our own personal problems but the problems that we face out in the world today.   Ora Nadrich is a certified life coach and author of Says Who?: How One Simple Question Can Change the Way You Think Forever
