Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
John Muir turned down a mentoring offer from Ralph Waldo Emerson so that he could continue his beloved wilderness exploration and writing, which is such an enrichment to us even today. This program offers revealing stories from his amazing life, along with the insights of modern deep ecologists pursuing his idea that respect for living systems comes before human interests. We hear from Frederick Turner, author of John Muir: Rediscovering America; Bill DeVall, author of SIMPLE IN MEANS, RICH IN ENDS: DEEP ECOLOGY IN THEORY AND PRACTICE; David Orr, Sierra Club activist and co-founding director of the John Muir Project; Canadian writer and activist Trudy Frisk; Kelpie Wilson, director of the Siskiyou Project; Casey Walker, editor and publisher of the Wild Duck Review; Patsy Hallen, a Canadian professor and author who lives half of each year “in the bush” of Australia; and David Brower, founder of Earth Island Institute and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Each of these eco-pioneers offers a unique view into the present and future of the planet. (hosted by Michael Toms)
