Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
A true global citizen, Marisa Handler was born in South Africa to a Jewish family. They moved away from the imposed apartheid to California's San Fernando Valley, when she was eleven years old. She has since become an activist for social justice, and is inspired by the wisdom of her spiritual convictions of compassion, and her understanding that the process of deep listening is the true road to world peace. She's lived in Jerusalem and traveled to Jordan, Egypt, India, Nepal and throughout the U.S., speaking and organizing for the Tikkun Community. She has also spent time in Central and South America as well as Cuba. Handler says, "I realize that sometimes the work we were doing, trying to make things better, seemed to be actually pushing people apart and really making things worse.
