Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
In our heart of hearts, we know there is something crazy about what we're doing to the environment—and yet we continue to destroy it. In this program, author Theodore Roszak describes how to stay sane by restoring our wonder and connection with the natural world. Pulitzer Prize-winning biologist E.O. Wilson describes his “biophilia hypothesis: that we have an inherent desire for close association with the natural world, and for a habitat that resembles our original one.” Helena Norberg-Hodge shares secrets from Ladakh, where people have lived sustainably for centuries in the harsh desert climate of northern Himalayan India, and systems theorist Joanna Macy describes "the great turning" that is underway—a social, political and economic shift as significant as the development of agriculture, as impactful as the Industrial Revolution. Through all these perspectives, we begin to see our way to becoming a sane species that has remembered how to live gracefully on this planet. (hosted by Michael Toms)
