Foster and Kimberly Gamble Discuss Feelings About THRIVE Dissociators [video]

(By Foster and Kimberly Gamble |

As some of you may know, ten of the people interviewed in our movie, THRIVE, have recently signed a public letter of dissociation from the film. They include Deepak Chopra, Duane Elgin, Amy Goodman, Paul Hawken, Edgar Mitchell, John Perkins, John Robbins, Elisabet Sahtouris, Vandana Shiva, and Adam Trombly. [1]

Those signing the statement express feeling misled about the film’s content and find the message of THRIVE to be misguided. We sincerely apologize for whatever unwitting part we played in generating this sense of having been mislead and can say with utmost sincerity that this was never our intent.

Each of the pioneers in THRIVE were invited because their expertise in a particular area had been helpful in our gaining an understanding of the bigger picture that includes, but vastly transcends, their sector of expertise – or anyone’s political affiliation. We clearly state this in the movie:

“The people in THRIVE do not necessarily agree with the themes, statements, claims or conclusions presented in the film or website, nor does their inclusion imply our full agreement with all of their views. The people interviewed have each contributed in some deep way to our understanding and we are grateful to them all.” 

To facilitate a more fruitful conversation, we have invited all Pioneers to engage in a direct public discussion with us about anything that THRIVE actually stands for.

We updated this article so we could feature the full dialogue between Pioneers more prominently at the top of the page.  Here is the exchange that has taken place so far. Your comments are welcome below.

Here is a living index of our ongoing discussion:
