Spirituality & Peace Sunday: Disarming Violence through Love

Broadcast on July 13, 2014
With Leslie Temple-Thurston and Brad Laughlin

Love is the most powerful force in the universe. When we enter the field of unconditional love, aggression and violence cannot be sustained, and peace becomes possible.

Leslie Temple-Thurston and Brad Laughlin

Co-Founders of CoreLight and Seeds of Light, Spiritual Teachers
Leslie Temple-Thurston is a teacher of enlightenment, who for over 25 years has wholeheartedly dedicated her life to inspiring and guiding people towards their spiritual awakening at this pivotal moment in humanity’s evolution. For many years she pursued the study of mysticism and ancient wisdom through meditation, yogic teachings and spiritual psychology. In the late 1980s, her years of spiritual practice came to fruition when she experienced the complete dissolution of her old identity and a profound spiritual transformation and awakening. Shortly thereafter, Leslie met Brad Laughlin, now her partner of 21 years. Brad is also a spiritual guide and mentor to a growing number of seekers worldwide. Together they founded the non-profit organization, CoreLight, and developed a school of transformation, which offers online events, group meditations, extensive audio teachings and ongoing courses of study. CoreLight’s dedication is to positive change in the world by fostering inner peace amongst individuals and outer peace through humanitarian service. Brad and Leslie are authors whose books have been translated into many languages. They are also the co-founders of the humanitarian aid organization, Seeds of Light, which provides services to South Africa’s AIDS orphans and marginalized communities.
