In 1986, Michael Bernard Beckwith founded the Agape International Spiritual Center, a trans-denominational community highly regarded for its cultural, racial, and spiritual diversity, including thousands of local members and global live video streamers. “I greatly admire what you are doing to bring about the Beloved Community,” the late Coretta Scott King wrote to him, “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, partner 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 and retraining to schools, libraries, orphanages, hospitals, clinics, homes for unwed mothers, and provide micro-loans, financial support during natural disasters, and human advocacy. Locations served range from eight African countries to Afghanistan, Bosnia, Columbia, Ecuador, India, Iraq, Kosovo, and Sri Lanka.
In 2012, Dr. Beckwith addressed the UN General Assembly during its annual World Interfaith Harmony Week. As co-founder and president of the Association for Global New Thought, he hosts conferences featuring harbingers of world peace including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and had the distinguished honor of presenting to Nelson Mandela the Gandhi King Award. Dr. Beckwith is a sought after meditation teacher, conference speaker, and seminar leader on the Life Visioning Process.
Three of his most recent books-Life Visioning, Spiritual Liberation, and TranscenDance Expanded are recipients of the prestigious Nautilus Award. He has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Network’s SuperSoul Sunday, SuperSoul Sessions, and Help Desk; Dr. Oz; The Oprah Show; Larry King Live; Tavis Smiley; and in his own PBS Special, The Answer Is You and is a member of Oprah’s prestigious inaugural Super Soul 100.

Through awareness technology, spiritual practices, intentionality and dedication, we can take back our mind and use it as an avenue of awareness, rather than as a dumping ground of errant thoughts and perceptions that run rampant in the world masquerading as Reality. When we have successfully taken back our mind, it becomes a powerful and useful tool for our own evolution, for expressing happiness and prosperity, and for living a purposeful life!
There is a difference between the Divine Mind, of which are all individualized expressions, and the programmed, egoic mind. In this course we will become more in tune with the Divine Mind which gives us access to our intuition, which in turn allows us access to our “inner knower” so that we can live our life’s purpose.
By understanding the workings of the mind we learn how to remain conscious without falling prey to the downward spiral of negative thinking. You become aware that you are pure awareness itself, that you can transmute and transcend those programs that cause you to go through life with the breaks on. This workshop will provide you with the framework necessary to hold and stabilize spiritual insight and transmute fears and mental and emotional blockages. By entering into teachings, exercises, processes and spiritual practices–including meditation, affirmative prayer and visioning–we will take back and reprogram our mind, become aware that you are awareness and live to your fullest potential!
