BLISSfix Loves Agape Revelations!
Each year the Agape Spiritual Center of Culver City, CA decends upon a city somewhere in the USA and transforms it for a weekend. I was most delighted to attend the Revelations Conference this year as it was held on the east coast in Atlanta, GA. Just a short 4 hr drive from my home. And once again, entering the energy of Agape was like coming home. As the first song was sung, and Rev. Michael Beckwith walked down the aisle toward the stage, I was overwhelmed with emotion and I began what Oprah calls “the ugly cry.” I wept for the joy of being there again, and I wept for the realization of how much I’ve missed it. Just one year ago, being in this energy was an every other day occasion, and since my return to Charlotte last Augsut, nothing has been the same. My local spiritual center has undergone months of painful transformation, our business underwent months of painful transformation and therefor I too experienced months of painful transformation. And here I was, still breathing… back at Agape, only 4 hours from home. It was a beautiful and grateful moment.
I’m so thankful to my Aunt Jo Anne who brought my mom and myself here. I had introduced each of them to Agape on different trips to LA and each felt the same connection I had experienced. There is something truly special about what is being created by the leaders and members of Agape. The most overwhelming emotion is one of open acceptance. Anyone of any faith, of any background, of any race, of any upbringing, of any political leaning, of any age, of any monetary standing, of any thing… is welcome, without judgment.
Revelations offers many gifts beyond the feeling of total acceptance. There are special events and classes for the kids. There is a marketplace of vendors selling beautiful, spiritually oriented products. There are healing practitioners of every sort there to offer anything from 20 min – 2 hrs of reflexology, reiki, massage therapy, accupuncture, etc. There are spiritual services, speakers, and musical performances with choreographed dancers. And on the last night, every Revelation has a giant ballroom dinner and dancing for everyone in attendance.
Although it is obviously free to attend church services in LA, transporting this size of a production to another city doesn’t come cheap and therefor neither are the tickets. Early bird specials keep the price just below $500/person, and if you put it off, that price jumps up $100 or more.
