THE TRANSFORMATIONAL OF THE POWER OF MUSIC
with Agape International’s Michael Beckwith
Michael Beckwith / Agape International: With the release of his genre-bending, ecstatic dance CD, TranscenDance, on Agape Media International (AMI), Michael Bernard Beckwith, sets the standard as a transformational music artist.
Already a world-renowned spiritual leader and best-selling author featured in the mega-hit film and book, The Secret, with his own, acclaimed PBS Special: The Answer Is You, Beckwith is Founder & Spiritual Director of the Agape nternational
Spiritual Center in Los Angeles, a trans-denominational, multi-cultural community, where music has a significant place in the weekly celebrations, classes, and conferences. He and his wife, Rickie Byars Beckwith, have written over 200 songs that are performed by artists worldwide at spiritual centers and conscious-living festivals such as Harmony Festival, Earthdance, Burning Man, Bhakti Fest and Lightning-In-A-Bottle. Beckwith shares, “There is no point in time when the mysticism of music has not been a vital component in all of my creative expressions. The inspiration and healing elements of music are integral to the unfoldment of the soul, and it has played a major role in my own transformational practices.” Beckwith encourages listeners to be aware of the soundtrack within their own lives. Are they moving to a rhythm of victim songs or to anesthetize themselves? Or are they living in cadence with the musical notes of inspiration, upliftment, triumph, and joy?
