Michael Bernard Beckwith is a spiritual philosopher, speaker and writer. He has appeared numerous times on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and has been featured as a guest and commentator on matters of spiritual growth on "Larry King Live" and CBS News "Eye on America." He was featured in the film “The Secret” which has sold over 14 million copies of the DVD and book internationally.

In this 60 minute PBS Special Michael Beckwith addresses a sold out audience in downtown Los Angeles at L.A. Live. He speaks to universal questions faced by people of all and any faith, regarding connection to the divine, manifesting goodness and health for you and your loved ones, the nature of prosperity, understanding a larger purpose in life and adopting the mind set and spiritual attitude that empowers individuals to live rich, fulfilling, positive lives.

In keeping with the format of his frequent lectures around the country and at the Agape International Spiritual Center, which he founded in 1986, Michael Bernard Beckwith is joined by his wife Rickie Byars Beckwith, who performs short musical accents to the themes explored in the lecture. As Music & Arts Director of the world-renowned Agape International Choir she has performed by invitation at President Obama’s Inauguration, on CNN’s “Heroes” special, "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Oprah," "Larry King" and in concert accompanying many top artists including John Legend, India.Irie, Olivia Newton-John, Will.I.Am, Siedah Garrett, Chaka Khan and others. The message of the Special is amplified by brief musical segues performed by the Agape International Choir and various national recording artists, leading into and out of the lecture segments.

"Michael Bernard Beckwith: The Answer Is You" will premiere nationally in December of 2009 and will be followed by a national lecture tour by Michael Bernard Beckwith with Rickie Byars Beckwith.
