Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Wouldn't it be nice to increase the chance that today will be your lucky day? What if you could raise the likelihood of having a peak experience, or a flash of insight that illumines life's deepest truths? Is there a physical reason why we're often afraid to take the chances that might transform our lives? These are a few of the questions explored by Dr. James Austin in this unusual blending of spirituality and science. As both a neurologist and a Zen practitioner he brings a quiet logic to the mysteries of enlightenment, and explains how moments of spiritual awakening alter brain function and body chemistry to make us happier and more creative. He uses his scientific perspective to explain metaphysical events, and explains that "with meditative practice the brain quiets down. On a background of meditative practice, peak experiences tend to be more transformative, more influential, and the person becomes more actualized." (hosted by Michael Toms)
