Bill Moyers has said of the work of Justine & Michael Toms, “In this day of fortune-cookie philosophies and bumper-sticker politics, it is refreshing to find a sanctuary for sustained conversation where two people truly communicate, with a large audience leaning across the electronic sofa eavesdropping. New Dimensions is a safe haven for that kind of sharing.”
“Notice what sparks your natural enthusiasm. Notice when your heart leaps up in joyous exuberance; notice when you are so excited about what you are doing, time seems to disappear. In these moments the voice of your spirit is speaking directly to you. By doing more of the things that bring you joy, you’ll be tapping in to the unlimited power of the universe and all its creative abundance.”
