Human Dimensions Institute (HDI)
New Age educational organization in Buffalo, New York,
that in the 1970s pioneered research on the ‘‘whole’’ person—
physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. The institute operated
through scientific research, publications, lectures, seminars,
experience groups, and continuing courses at Rosary Hill,
Buffalo, and surrounding colleges and institutions. Seminars
were held at Swen-i-o, the new HDI Retreat Center at Canandaigua,
New York. International authorities discussed such
areas as parapsychology, consciousness expansion, nutrition,
unorthodox healing, holistic philosophy, and spiritual experience.
The institute published the Human Dimensions Magazine,
a quarterly publication of articles and professional papers on
new frontiers of human experience.
