New Dimensions (Total: 68 episodes)

Beginning with her experience of psychic phenomena from early childhood, Currivan was led on a quest of a life-long exploration of the nature of reality. Her research has come to show that information is as real as anything we call physical reality. Here we explore the reality of informational physics and why this matters in our daily lives. Jude Currivan is the author of The Cosmic Hologram: In-formation at the Center of Creation.

Page advises us to tend the soil of our body and says, “Your soil is made up of your belief systems, your perceptions.” She believes illness isn’t just a physiological episode, and tells us to listen to the intuitive messages from our soul telling us it is time to change. When we keep ignoring these messages, our bodies will stop us in our tracks by getting sick.

Healer Nicki Scully tells us how it is time for us to move from healing ourselves to healing the planet. We can do this collectively by joining together in circles, in phone-bridges, and in our own personal meditations. Now is the time for us to make a quantum leap in consciousness. We must co-create this movement; we must allow spirit to come in through our hearts and minds. Scully says, “Now is the time of tremendous opportunity for people to put their hearts and minds together. If all of the individuals join in circles, and all the circles join, and we’re all focusing on planetary healing, this uniting of minds and hearts can give us a tremendous opportunity for quantum leap [in consciousness].”

Depth hypnosis and the “Coming to Peace” process provide a pathway for healing conflict and coming to a place of reconciliation and wholeness. This process can involve one’s personal inner conflicts as well as the larger dynamics of family systems. Gucciardi says, “The truth is that the symptom is the tip of the iceberg . . .The symptom becomes the path to healing in depth hypnosis.”

Here we explore how we can abide in equanimity with the displays of hatred and polarization in these most challenging times. There is one person who models for us the highest form of radical peace, His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In this dialogue we explore how we too may embody peace and nonviolence as we find peacewithin ourselves and with the world.

Judith takes us on a historical journey and moves us into the present era. She has hope for the future and points out that there is an under-reported grassroots movement taking place today, but warns, “We need to be careful not to judge it as a system that doesn’t work just because it’s young… we have to move through the chaos and find a new organizing principle.”
