Lex Hixon hosted this ground-breaking radio program from the 1970's - early 1990's on WBAI in New York City. A remarkable time in the spiritual history of the United States, In the Spirit covered and broadcasted an amazing period of great openness and experimentation. In these programs and interviews are captured the Dalai Lama's first visit to the American people, Mother Teresa, Rebbe Zalman Schachter, Swami Prabhavananda and meetings with other known and unknown spiritual teachers, saints, and practitioners from just about every religious tradition. Over the course of 3 decades and over 300 programs, this unedited series is undoubtedly a unique Interfaith Library and a time capsule of our spiritual history.
