Conversations with Activists Complete 7- Interview series
Gabriel of Urantia's Conversations with Activists is a 7 session interview series collection in which Gabriel of Urantia talks with musical, social, and spiritual activists from around the world, including musician Thomas Mapfumo (the "Lion of Zimbabwe") and actor Russell Means (1939-2012)—a leader and founding member in the American Indian Movement (AIM) and a civil rights activist.
Gabriel of Urantia has been proactive in the spiritual, social, and environmental arenas for more than 30 years. He was the first to develop the concept of "spiritual activism," which led to his SpiritualutionSM—Justice to the People movement that has inspired and influenced millions towards a better and brighter tomorrow. As a musical activist, Gabriel writes from his own life experiences, from his soul, and conveys the joy and pain of life through music to touch and inspire people to give them hope in the midst of day-to-day struggle and conflict. This motivating collection will inspire you to be the change you want to see in the world.
