New Dimensions Broadcasting Network
New Dimensions Broadcasting Network is the producer and
distributor of post-New Age radio and short wave programs.
New Dimensions was created in 1973, as an expression of the
human potentials movement. Founders Michael and Justine
Toms were, at that time, inspired by the work of parapsychologist
Charles T. Tart, one of the founders of the discipline
of transpersonal psychology, who had observed that a new revolution
in consciousness was beginning. New Dimensions was
incorporated as a nonprofit educational foundation to address
the issues raised by the approaching change in culture and
New Dimensions began modestly as a program for a single
station in Northern California. In 1980 the program reached
a national audience with a weekly program over a satellite network.
Through the 1990s more than a hundred different stations
across the United States have aired the ongoing series of
programs and it has been picked up by the Armed Forces
Radio Network and the Radio for Peace International shortwave
network. Beginning in May 2000, New Dimensions was
aired by the Merlin shortwave system. It is also available on the
Internet. As the twenty-fist century begins, New Dimensions is
the most widely heard New Age broadcast in the world.
New Dimensions programs are commonly built around an interview
with one or more persons representative of what is perceived
as the new consciousness. Guests have included spiritual
leaders from a variety of Eastern and alternative traditions, environmental
spokespersons, and exponents of various forms of
esoteric wisdom and New Thought metaphysics.
The New Dimensions Broadcast is currently supported by
the New Dimensions Foundation, P. O. Box 569, Ukiah, CA
95482. The Foundation issues a bi-monthly periodical, New Dimensions
The Journal of New Dimensions Radio, that provides a
guide to upcoming programs. It also supports a website at
httpwww.newdimensions.org, and makes available tape recordings
of past programs. The work of the foundation is supported
by a cadre of listeners known as the Friends of New Dimensions.
