THRIVE is a global movement that aims to inform and inspire people to create a better world. This movement began after the release of ‘THRIVE I: What on Earth Will it Take?’ back in 2011. In our Winter 2020/21 issue, we interviewed the makers, Foster Gamble and Kimberly Carter Gamble, on their newest offering, ‘THRIVE II: This is What it Takes’. Read the full piece below!
Liberating Our Minds
We Interview the Makers of THRIVE

Interviewer: Paul Congdon
THRIVE is a global movement that aims to inform and inspire people to create a better world. This movement began after the release of ‘THRIVE I: What on Earth Will it Take?’ back in 2011.
In this documentary, the filmmakers Foster Gamble and Kimberly Carter Gamble put forward their research into the power structures that inform how human society currently operates. They also shared compelling scientific and spiritual evidence that demonstrated how we are part of an infinitely alive, interconnected cosmos.
Kimberly and Foster believe 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 transformation.
They emphasise that on a practical level, this understanding of our inherent oneness could bring about widespread changes in how we relate to each other.
‘THRIVE II: This is What it Takes’ has recently been released. This follow-up documentary brings viewers behind the scenes with the people and inventions that have the power to transform life for all inhabitants of our planet. It aims to unpack the strategies, the science, and the principles that underlie some potent solutions in energy, health, consciousness, and non-coercive self-organising.
By inspiring trans-political, grassroots, decentralised solutions, ‘THRIVE II’ puts forward practical tools for reclaiming authority over our own lives and communities.
‘THRIVE II’ unveils an emerging coherent theory of the “Unified Field” and all that this implies.
Foster and Kimberly’s vision is simple: as the title suggests, they want to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
We marked the release of ‘THRIVE II’ by interviewing them both during a special Positive Nights event, to learn more about the inspiration behind their documentaries and the wider movement.
What is giving you the greatest excitement at this time, in relation to some of the concepts that THRIVE I and THRIVE II explored?
For me, it is the deepening awareness of what it means to be an energetic being interacting with the world around me. My grounding point – which guided all of my decisions and words during both movies – was the human aspect of what we were exploring. I constantly came back to the question: ‘how can this information change people’s lives?’
I feel more confident than ever that humans can solve the mess we’ve gotten ourselves into! Though it’s not easy, and though there’s a lot to be done, I do have immense hope. The solutions are much more simple and more coherent than we may realise. I was at lunch recently with one of the scientists featured in the movie, who explained that if we can create a still point between two perfectly aligned waves of energy, this emanation could unlock immense healing potentials within the surrounding cells. This generation of a still point could unlock free energy technology. This is what we’ve heard again and again and again.
This leads me into a question on one of the fascinating concepts you explored in THRIVE: the torus field. You mentioned the work of Nassim Haramein, in particular – what is it that draws you to his work?
Nassim and I have been friends for twenty years. When I first met him, he was literally travelling in a van, trying to spread the word about his inventions and ideas. He was one event from giving up, because no one understood what he was talking about. A friend of mine knew him, and because our work was so similar, he told me, “you have to go to this event.” When I heard Nassim talk, I had hairs standing up on the back of my neck.
We are especially excited about Nassim’s resonator – THRIVE II is the first time he has revealed it publicly. The aim of this resonator is to tap into the power of nature by creating a natural black hole, which can generate ongoing energy ‘packets’ from the universe.
What changed for you both after you made THRIVE I back in 2011? What was the most amazing thing you experienced as a result?
We got 90 million documented views, and were exposed to many different people. I could sense that we were really fulfilling a need, which was incredible. It has been amazing to connect with people all over the world who understood what we were setting out to do. Yet with that, some slander came our way, and negative things were said about us. Personally, what changed for me in that process was that I was liberated! After trying my whole life to please people, a fearlessness emerged in me. I learned that it was far more important to respect myself, act with integrity and speak my truth – which was always intended to be helpful.
I felt free to be true to myself. For me, that was hugely empowering and necessary for me to start working on THRIVE II. The fact that the movie spread so widely showed me that if you tell your truth with integrity and intention to empower, it will spread. That’s it. Give people something true that they need, and it will spread.
The main thing that I got was confirmation that the vast majority of humanity is awesome! Despite what you read on the papers or see on TV, we truly are awesome. Following THRIVE I, Kimberly and I were contacted by over a thousand inventors from all over the world, saying, “thank you for having the courage to talk about this stuff.”
We did hundreds of appearances related to the movie, and at every one, we met people who had created their own THRIVE solutions groups in their town or community. This led us to create the solutions hub on our website, where these small groups can see each other and share what they’re doing. There are now over 1100 of these groups, in 90 countries all over the world.
When you give humans enough of the truth, they will take creative, constructive action beyond anything that can be imagined.
There is a quote I love from Martin Luther King, that says: “Those who love peace must learn to be as organised as those who love war.”
What is the most empowering thing people can do right now to bring about the positive solutions explored in the movie?
First, find stillness within yourself. Then, ask yourself a question that many people spend their lives avoiding. Ask, “what is my purpose? What is my reason for being here?” A purpose is more than just a goal: it’s a direction. It’s an internal compass. It feels fulfilling to you, and has both a self-discovery aspect, and a healing or sharing aspect that you bring to the world. Once you know that purpose, you can ask yourself where that purpose would be best expressed. What field are you drawn to? Science, media, economics, health?
If you pick what you’re most drawn to and most skilled with, ask yourself which issue do you want to work on? Is there one specific issue that calls you? Or do you want to work more on systemic change?
The one thing I know for sure is that change is up to us.
To me, purpose is both self-knowing and the action that goes along with it. Any information that comes through us, and feels true and good, asks us to take actions that will enable us to be most in congruence with it.
Ask the question that is burning in you. Ask yourself what you want to devote your life to … and then fasten your seatbelt!
During the second half of our event, attendees were given the opportunity to ask questions and interact with Foster and Kimberly directly. One person asked the very pertinent question, ‘can we ever create a new, independent flow of information, free of bias?’
That is the question of the day! We have a number of news source we respect and trust to get to the truth of a matter, backing up their reports with facts and evidence, rather than aiming to support one particular political party or leader, or nation state. If you’re going on mainstream media, just do it to see what they are saying, but then go to other sources too, and make up your own mind.
It’s important to be discerning. Ask yourself, “what parts of this report feel true to me?” And accept that some people might have one piece of the truth, but not all of it. Foster and I have exposed ourselves to every imaginable perspective and asked “what is of value here? What is of value here?” We reach our own opinions by considering what different sources have to say, debating it with each other, asking our own hearts what feels right … and that is a very important aspect of becoming a sovereign being.
Sign up to newsletters by people whom you respect as being impartial and honest. I probably review 50 to 100 of those every day. I print out the articles that I find to be most valuable, and take from them the truth that I need. You can go through the titles of the various articles and podcasts and pick the ones that most interest you. It can save a tremendous amount of time, if you have access to a wide range of sources you respect.
Another attendee posed an interesting question about transhumanism, or the act of changing the form or structure of human bodies through the addition of artificial technology and implants (such as microchips in the brain: a development which is beginning to be explored by certain research institutions and companies). We loved hearing Kimberly and Foster’s balanced and thoughtful approach to this subject.
I would love to address this question, because it’s a subject I’m passionate about. This issue shows us how futile it is to think we’re all going to come to an agreement. Trillions of dollars and decades of research have gone into transhumanism. People in that field are very committed to it – I’ve read their books, I’ve listened to their lectures, I’ve met with them, and I’ve really tried to understand their worldview.
Is efficiency of greater value than humanity, as we understand it?
I think this is one of the ethical dilemmas of the times we’re in. We’re starting to hear a lot about ‘human augmentation’ – plugging your brain into a computer, potentially learning fifteen languages in ten minutes, and all these related scenarios that are envisaged. When we think about it, we’re all somewhere along that continuum between fully supporting transhumanism, and letting our bodies operate in an organic way. For example, when you get a broken arm, do you let the bones heal naturally, or do you get a piece of metal put into your arm, if the metal is proven to be stronger?
There are a lot of people who would be in favour of transhumanism to some extent – some would even go as far as altering human DNA – whereas others would say, “no, I accept life cycles. It’s okay for me to age. It’s okay for me to die. I just want to be more healthy as I go through my life.” And I don’t believe we’re all gong to come to an agreement. So this is where the non-aggression principle comes in. How do we coexist in such a way that we’re allowed freedom of choice?
I do have hope in the principle of non-aggression. I think we can abide by this principle that allows us to manifest in accordance with our beliefs and values, whilst not seeking to impose those beliefs and values on one another. We may have a big job ahead of us, but I do believe humanity can do that!
Every human we’ve ever met agrees with this one simple thing: no one wants to be violated against their will. I was so excited when we found this one simple principle that every human can align around. It’s as simple as that!
