In our Autumn 2020 issue, we were pleased to share a short feature on THRIVE II, a documentary that puts forward many revolutionary suggestions for problems in our world. Since that issue went to print, we have had the pleasure of interviewing the filmmakers, and we will be featuring a four-page special feature on the documentary in our upcoming Winter issue. Read on to enjoy the piece from our Autumn 2020 issue!
The documentary with an empowering dream
‘THRIVE I’ was an acclaimed documentary that explored the global consolidation of power … and more importantly, presented its viewers with constructive, inspiring solutions. This documentary weaved together some exciting breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, offering bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future.
‘THRIVE II: This Is What It Takes’ brings viewers behind the scenes with the people and inventions that have the power to transform life for all inhabitants of our planet. This follow-up documentary unpacks the strategies, the science, and the principles that underlie some potent solutions in energy, health, consciousness, and non-coercive self-organising. ‘THRIVE II’ unveils an emerging coherent theory of the “Unified Field” and all that it implies.
The production team behind THRIVE II believe that there is scientific and spiritual evidence that we are part of an infinitely alive, interconnected cosmos. Their view is that this web of interconnectivity is organised according to knowable energy dynamics, and that aligning with this patterning will allow us to access its infinite potential for physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and interpersonal transformation. The principles that we need to practice to do this can be applied to expanding consciousness, non-coercive self-organising, accessing clean electricity, preventing and curing illnesses and more.
They have asked themselves – given the evidence that there are solutions, in every sector, ready to restore our beloved planet and support a thriving civilisation – “What is in the way of our living in this state of abundance and peace?” The conclusion they’ve reached is that the main obstacle is humanity’s widespread belief that drastic positive change is not possible, and that we need to abdicate our authority to others.
The filmmakers’ vision is simple: as the title suggests, they want to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. They hope to educate and empower people to tap into their innate potential. They hope that this, in turn, will inspire people to help empower others and create lasting change.
They say: ‘we explore sovereignty and what it means as individuals to claim authority over our own lives. We describe how this relation to ourselves and to each other is based on the same principles as the unified field – operating seamlessly at every scale. We’re not alone in this. We are profoundly connected. Science and spirit both show that now.’
Inspiring trans-political, grass roots, decentralised solutions, ‘THRIVE II’ puts forward practical tools for reclaiming authority over our lives. From new sources of energy to breakthrough health cures, ‘THRIVE II’ provides the insights and resources needed for viewers to take next steps in accessing and supporting the solutions that can truly create a world that works for everyone.
We hosted a Positive Nights event with the makers, Kimberly Carter Gamble and Foster Gamble, on October 8th – watch it here. A full-length feature with them will appear in our next Winter issue. Keep your eyes peeled!
