"In times of challenge and change, there are key questions that many share: Do we search for meaning, or grasp for survival? How can we prosper and grow? What is genuine happiness and how may we experience it?
One of the most respected visionary teachers of our time, Michael Bernard Beckwith addresses these and other profound questions in his first PBS television special, The Answer Is You, premiering nationally Nov. 27 - Dec. 10, 2009.
Recorded before a sold-out audience in downtown Los Angeles, ‘The Answer’ delves deep into methods for manifesting prosperity and health; adopting mind sets and heart sets that empower individuals to live rich, fulfilling, positive lives; understanding universal laws and identifying a larger purpose in life.
Beckwith’s unwavering conviction about creating a world that works for everyone is contagious, convincing and encouraging. Viewers of this 60-minute PBS pledge special will gain greater understanding, self-awareness, courage and self-reliance, while supporting the extraordinary arts, education, documentary and news programs found only on PBS.
The Answer Is You also includes stirring music by Rickie Byars Beckwith, Siedah Garrett (co-writer of Michael Jackson’s “Man In The Mirror”), Niki Haris, Will.I.Am (of Black Eyed Peas) and the acclaimed Agape International Choir. A 12-song CD of music from the Special is available as one of 4 new PBS Pledge premiums, along with the Hardcover Special Edition Book (128 pages), Deluxe Edition DVD (the complete broadcast plus 70 minutes of bonus features) and the Complete Audio Program CD.
