Living With Enlightenment: A Journey of Love (Paperback)
We learn who we are through our relationships. Anyone who has had the privilege of being in the presence of an enlightened person or spiritual teacher will appreciate the power of such a learning experience. In Living With Enlightenment, Brad Laughlin recounts the story of his journey of love with Leslie Temple-Thurston, a world-renowned teacher of enlightenment. Brad and Leslie have lived and worked together for the past twenty-five years and share an intimacy and love that is deep, ancient and enduring. Their unconventional love story is at the heart of this book.
Sometimes light and humorous and at other times sad and touchingly intimate, Living With Enlightenment is always profound.
At this pivotal moment in human evolution, Brad's message conceptualizes a necessary shift in consciousness as a move from separation (or duality) to heart-centered unity. He uses personal experiences and memories as a very grounded and practical way of illustrating timeless spiritual truths which are of relevance to us all. The collection of stories form a map, navigating a conscious path to realization of the Self.
