Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
We have discovered that the universe is dynamically alive and interconnected, and the implications are profound. Ironically, the leading edge of science is bringing back the consciousness of an earlier era when human begins were not separated from nature and the world was enchanted. Thomas Berry speaks of these changing views and a vision of a restorative, creative relationship with the natural world which may hold a key to eventual healing of our global environmental crisis. Raised in the hill country of North Carolina, Berry is a deep believer in recognizing our connection with nature, for "if we can't see the stars at night, it's not just pollution or toxicity of the planet, it's a loss of our soul, our imagination, of the experience of what it is to be a human being."

Thomas Berry, C.P., Ph.D. (1914-2009) was a Catholic priest of the Passionist order. He was a cultural historian and ecotheologian (although cosmologist and geologian – or “Earth scholar” – were his preferred descriptors). He was one of the leading environmental thinkers in North America. His background held the dual focus of both scientific and spiritual orientations. He was the director of the Riverdale Center for Religious Research and founder of the History of Religions Program at Fordham University.
