“Building the Beloved Community” with Michael Bernard Beckwith
ATLANTA, September 22, 2012 – Michael Bernard Beckwith shares that “Architects of the Beloved Community are spiritual revolutionaries who realize that the solution to our 21st century global challenges is a spiritual one. Love is a living, powerful energy that holds together the fabric of the created world.”
Michael Bernard Beckwith is the founder and spiritual director of the Agape International Spiritual Center, a spiritual community that is rich in cultural diversity with worldwide reach in its vision to create a world that works for everyone. Author of Spiritual Liberation and featured teacher in The Secret, Dr. Beckwith has appeared on the Oprah Show and Larry King and has taught alongside many world spiritual leaders.
Dr. Beckwith brings his inspiring teachings of building community Saturday, September 22, 2012 from 10:00AM until 2:00PM to Unity North Atlanta Church in Marietta, where the message and music will provide a catalyst for personal and global change throughout our communities. There will be a question and answer session and book signing after the lecture.
Rickie Byars Beckwith, director of Music and Arts at the Agape International Spiritual Center and author of Let My Soul Surrender, joins in to establish a tone of joy, inspiration, and communion. Affectionately known as Rickie BB, she is a soulful and songful powerhouse whose music opens the heart, touches the soul, and uplifts the spirit spreading a message of unity and non-violence. She has performed for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and led The Agape International Choir during its participation in the inaugural events for President Barack Obama.
In this talk we will explore:
- Why we are not here to “save” the world, but to serve an emerging paradigm of love, connectedness, compassion, and selfless service.
- That there is no separation between our spiritual, social, and political endeavors which are all governed by the immutable principle that we are one family co-creating the destiny of our planet.
- How every member within a spiritual community is empowered to be a transforming agent.
Tickets for the event are available at the Unity North Atlanta Church office or online at www.unitynorth.org.
