John E. Fetzer and the Quest for the New Age

By Brian C. Wilson, Ph. D.

New Book Reveals How Radio Pioneer, Media Mogul and Detroit Tigers’ Owner John Fetzer Fostered the Marriage of Science and Spirituality Through the Decades 

While he was building the radio/TV/cable empire that fueled his wealth and enabled him to become sole owner of the Detroit Tigers from 1961 to 1983, few knew that John E. Fetzer was actually quietly and devotedly using spiritual principles and practices to guide his business growth, as well as funding some of the seminal research on consciousness in America which sought to reconcile science and spirituality.

Fetzer attributed his success to his spiritual practices and awareness of higher consciousness. In fact, Fetzer employed meditation, psychic consultants, pendulums, water dowsing and other “occult” practices regularly in his decision making—which he considered major factors in his success.  The new book John E. Fetzer and the Quest for the New Age (Wayne State University Press, 2018) by Brian C. Wilson, Ph. D, reveals Fetzer’s extraordinary life, while chronicling the birth of the New Age movement.

Brian C. Wilson, Ph.D

Brian C. Wilson, author of the new book, John E. Fetzer and the Quest for the New Age, is a professor of American religious history in the Department of Comparative Religion at Western Michigan University (WMU). He holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

After writing an award-winning book on cereal inventor and the leading Seventh-day Adventist of his time, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the Fetzer Institute invited Wilson to write a full-length spiritual biography of its founder, John E. Fetzer. The Kalamazoo-based Fetzer was a radio pioneer, media mogul, and long-time owner of the Detroit Tigers baseball team. But what most people didn’t know was that John E. Fetzer was quietly behind-the-scenes a significant figure in the consciousness movement and a spiritual seeker of the first order. For more than 60 years, he sought ways to open the doors of higher consciousness, spiritual empowerment, paranormal insights and energy medicine to humanity through spiritual study, science and the influence of the wealth at his disposal.

In John E. Fetzer and the Quest for the New Age, Wilson not only explores the evolution of Fetzer’s beliefs, but how he put them into action by permanently endowing three funds that will foster research into the scientific/spiritual interface for years to come, and help cultivate a more peaceful, loving and inclusive world founded on the principle that we are all connected through one infinite force.

dawsonrruhlingMy  guests on Saturday are Dr Dawson Church (left) and Dr Richard Ruhring.

Dawson Church, PhD, has edited or authored many books, and collaborated with leading authorities including Larry Dossey, MD, Bernie Siegel, MD, Christiane Northrup, MD, and others. He founded Soul Medicine Institute to research and teach emerging psychological and medical techniques that can yield fast and radical cures. His award-winning book, The Genie in Your Genes, (www.YourGeniusGene.com), pioneers the field of Epigenetics, explaining the remarkable self-healing mechanisms now emerging at the juncture of emotion and gene expression. He has authored numerous scientific studies through the Foundation for Epigenetic Medicine, and is the editor of Energy Psychology, a peer-reviewed journal. He shares how to apply these breakthroughs to health and athletic performance through EFT Universe (http://www.EFTUniverse.com), one of the largest alternative medicine sites on the web.

Dr Richard Ruhling , a retired physician who taught Health Science at Loma Linda University after Cardiology Fellowship and board-certification in Internal Medicine.  Loma Linda was featured in the cover story of  National Geographic (Nov, 2005) on Longevity. 

In my 70’s, I know something about longevity and I’m not about to sign up for any government “health” insurance programs. We can do better by taking care of ourselves because good eating habits can help reverse most health conditions–our problems usually come from what we put in our mouths. This includes prescription drugs which are a leading cause of illness, disability and death.  More information is available at: http://RichardRuhling.com
