Brad Laughlin is a spiritual teacher whose passion for over two decades has been finding innovative ways of helping people to awaken and discover love, joy and inspiration during these times of great change. Using ancient Truth teachings, yogic practices and spiritual psychology, he works with students worldwide to dissolve old, limiting ego structures that keep us trapped in negativity, pain and fear.
Brad believes that global change can be accomplished through each person’s willingness to show up and get involved. He realizes that only by changing our personal state of consciousness — how we see and relate to one another and the world — can humanity pass through this current time of transition in an optimal way. His dedication is to helping manifest a world where humanity lives in accordance with and reverence of nature. He supports others in knowing that the greatest gift we can give the world is our own awakened consciousness.
Brad is the author of Living with Enlightenment — A Journey of Love, which is about his life-partnership of over 25 years with Leslie Temple-Thurston, a teacher of enlightenment, and the profound transformation he experienced. Together, they co-founded the international spiritual nonprofit, CoreLight.org, and its humanitarian arm, SeedsOfLight.org, serving marginalized communities and AIDS orphans in South Africa. They are co-authors of two books, The Marriage of Spirit — Enlightened Living in Today’s World and Returning to Oneness — The Seven Keys of Ascension.
One of Brad’s passions has been leading retreats to sacred sites worldwide, including South Africa, Egypt, England, France, Greece, Brazil and the American Southwest. He is an American by birth and considers himself a global citizen. He has a degree from Duke University and when not with Leslie at their home in South Africa, is traveling and offering events in other parts of the world.
