repetitive and disappointing

I'm a big fan of Campbell and have many of his books. I'm also a fan of Michael Toms and have listened to many of his New Dimensions programs. The first thing that bothered me about this listen was how Toms doesn't seem to realize how he is breathing into the microphone while Campbell is speaking!! He sounds like he's a heavy breather on an obscene phone call!! I managed to get past this somehow but the further I got into the program, I realized that it basically could have been edited down to about an hour and a half. All of the concepts they discuss are REPEATED again and again, sometimes verbatim. Not a complete waste of time but disappointing nonetheless.

What wisdom!!!

I didn't know what to expect since this is a collection of 'radio' programs and speeches... but WOW what a powerful mind and spirit expanding experience.

We are hearing more of Joseph's message and ideas now through other spiritual leaders yet his is so genuine and humble. The fact that these took place in the late 70's and 80's gets me asking... where was I then? I only wish I could have experienced this man's spirit and message while he was alive.

I enjoyed every minute of this collection and HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.
