In this 80-minute public television special, Michael Beckwith will share steps for developing life strategies that will assist individuals in connecting with the source of power, creativity and infinite possibilities.
Beckwith, who has also co-facilitated international events with leaders of the world's spiritual traditions, maintains that "caught in the crunch of a challenging economic title wave, you can discover that you are equipped with the inner resourcefulness to navigate these perilous waters and move from feeling like a victim to becoming a victor!"
Along with Beckwith's message, The Answer Is YOU will also feature the music of the world famous Agape International Choir under the direction of singer songwriter Rickie Byars Beckwith.
