"We are unlimited beings. We have no ceiling. The capabilities and the talents and the gifts and the power that is within every single individual that is on this planet, is unlimited."
-Michael Beckwith, Founder and Spiritual Director of Agape
In 1986, Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith founded the Agape International Spiritual Center, a trans-denominational spiritual community whose doors are open to all seekers in search of authentic spirituality, personal transformation, and selfless service to humankind. Today, thousands of people gather weekly to hear Michael’s inspirational messages at the Center in Culver City, California.
Michael’s work extends far beyond this Center. He is co-founder of the Association for Global New Thought, an organization that is dedicated to “global healing through personal transformation, community-building, interfaith, intercultural, and interdisciplinary understanding, and compassionate activism.”
In his first PBS television special, The Answer Is You, Michael Beckwith spoke, and his world-acclaimed choir performed, before a sold-out audience at the NOKIA Theatre in Los Angeles, an event that premiered nationally Nov. 27 through Dec. 10, 2009. Viewers of this 60-minute PBS Pledge Special were given the opportunity to find “greater understanding, self-awareness, courage and self-reliance, while supporting the extraordinary arts, education, documentary and news programs found only on PBS.” Musical guests included Rickie Byars Beckwith, Siedah Garrett, Niki Haris, Will.I.Am, and the renowned Agape International Choir.
Agape Media International and Stephen Powers engaged HoloCosmos to design the packaging of the PBS pledge gifts and products from this event, including a Special Edition Book, Deluxe Edition DVD, Music CD, and Audio Program CD. In collaboration with Agape Media International, HoloCosmos created the brand system for the logo, general brand, and all the media packaging for this event. Through our alignment with Agape’s philanthropic mission, and our kinship with the desire to form conscious community, HoloCosmos exceeded the results that Rev. Michael and PBS hoped for.
