Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
We spend a bulk of our time in a very boisterous world of noise. We are in a constant deluge of information and chat whether it is from our email and social media, or the 24-hour news cycles with its constant announcements of breaking news. Even our households can be filled with noise. Despite 40 years of mindfulness trainings, we’ve yet to be successful in getting beyond the noise in our own heads. Studies have shown that noise has ramped up to ever higher decibels and we can all agree there exists a deficient of silence in our noise-soaked lives. Here we explore how to lessen both the exterior and interior noise in order to be able to hear our own intuition and tune in to our creative gifts. Zorn says, “Silence is more than the absence of noise; it's the absence of unwanted distraction, unwanted interference in our ears, on our screens, and in our thoughts…So much in the world is colonizing our attention, making claims on our consciousness…Silence is the place where nothing is making claims on our consciousness…We’re in a place of presence where nothing is interfering with our perception or our intention.” (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
