Rev Michael Bernard Beckwith is an American New Thought minister, author, and founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center.

In times of challenge and change, there are key questions pulling at our consciousness and our conscience:  

Do we search for meaning, or grasp at survival?  What is authentic happiness and how may we experience it?  What is the true place and purpose of prosperity in our lives? How do we align our individual consciousness with the evolutionary impulse of the universe?  How might discovering the answers to these questions pave the way to new personal, cultural and global perspectives?

Visionary spiritual teacher Michael Bernard Beckwith  describes such questions as a celebration of human inquiry that births a deeper awareness of the purpose of existence. 

"When you begin to see your life in a context of oneness with Source," he tell us, "You will discover a meaning and purpose for being alive that far transcends any sense of limitation."  Join him in The Answer Is YOU and learn how your own yearning for inner growth and creative expression is not separate from the evolutionary impulse governing the universe.

This program will be richly complemented by the soul-stirring music of Rickie Byars Beckwith

About the speaker, Rev Michael Beckwith

In 1986, Michael Bernard Beckwith founded the Agape International Spiritual Center, a trans-denominational community of thousands of local members and global live streamers. Highly regarded for its cultural, racial, and spiritual diversity, the late Coretta Scott King wrote to Beckwith, “I greatly admire what you are doing to bring about the Beloved Community, which is certainly what my dear husband worked for and ultimately gave his life.”

Agape’s local community outreach programs feed the homeless, serve incarcerated individuals and their families, partnership with community service organizations active in children’s schools and homes for youth at risk, support the arts, and advocate the preservation of our planet’s environmental resources.  Agape’s global humanitarian programs provide food programs, retraining programs, schools, libraries, orphanages, hospitals, clinics, homes for unwed mothers, micro-loans, financial support during natural disasters, and human advocacy.  Locations range from 8 African countries to Afghanistan, Bosnia, Columbia, Ecuador, India, Iraq, Kosovo, and Sri Lanka.

An eminent representative within diverse religious traditions and harbingers of world peace, in February 2012 Dr. Beckwith addressed the United Nations General Assembly as part of its annual World Interfaith Harmony Week. As co-founder and president of the Association for Global New Thought, he had the distinguished honor of presenting to Nelson Mandela the Gandhi King Award. Beckwith is also an international co-chair of the Gandhi King Season for Nonviolence which was launched at the United Nations in 1998 and is active in 900 international cities and 67 countries.  About its mission His Holiness the Dalai Lama has said:  “Both Gandhi and Martin Luther King are inspiring examples of the power and truth of nonviolence and the actions that arise from them. The Season for Nonviolence is a very good tool to remind us of their witness, and also the large unfinished work we have together in transforming awareness on our planet.”  Beckwith served as co-chair of the Synthesis Dialogues 1, 11, and 111, which were attended by the Dali Lama.

Dr. Beckwith is a sought after meditation teacher, conference speaker, and seminar leader on the Life Visioning Process, which he originated.  Three of his most recent books—Life Visioning, Spiritual Liberation, and TranscenDance Expanded are recipients of the prestigious Nautilus Award. He has appeared on Dr. OzThe Oprah Winfrey ShowOWN Help Desk, Larry King LiveTavis Smiley, and in his own PBS Special, The Answer Is You. Every Friday at 1 pm PST, thousands tune into his radio show on KPFK, Wake up: The Sound of Transformation.
