Description
The Marriage of Spirit is a handbook for spiritual awakening for people living and working in the world. It directly addresses how we can experience divine presence in our lives, and offers simple, powerful and fast exercises for creating balance and harmony. Based in the ancient teachings of the reconciliation of opposites, these revolutionary, unique, and easy journaling techniques help us accelerate the path to unity consciousness by quickly and dramatically moving us beyond egoic limitations and overcoming negativity, anger, pain and fear. Included is the especially powerful “Squares” technique, which creates radical and rapid transformation. In this groundbreaking book, which has been translated into several languages and has helped thousands worldwide, Leslie Temple-Thurston shares the story of the awakenings that led to her spiritual transformation, and her eclectic, yogic-influenced approach to Western enlightenment. Filtered through spiritual psychology, her insights and principles are based on the truth teachings of ancient mystery schools, traditions and religions, revamped and simplified for the contemporary spiritual seeker. As the author says, “We have arrived at a new and different time; we are here to enlighten the physical plane, the body, and the personality while living and working in the world…. If we integrate the dualistic and polarized schisms in our personality, we can know directly and palpably the unity which we truly are, beyond the limited personality.” In a world torn apart by polarization, it offers hope for a third way, the way of unity amidst diversity.
About the author
Leslie Temple-Thurston is a teacher of enlightenment, who since 1988 has wholeheartedly dedicated her life to inspiring and guiding people towards reaching their spiritual awakening at this most important and pivotal moment in humanity’s evolution. Leslie mentors individual seekers worldwide who are committed to their work of transformation and awakening to higher states. She guides people towards becoming fully conscious of and knowledgeable about the luminous core of light within themselves. She encourages her committed students, and many others who come to sit and study with her, to aspire fully and completely towards the state of mystical enlightenment. Vision holder and founder of the non-profit organization CoreLight, Leslie and her partner since 1992, Brad Laughlin, developed CoreLight’s school of transformation, which offers online seminars and group meditations, as well as ongoing study courses. To assist people in their awakening, Leslie also spent many years developing a unique and powerful set of processing techniques that have the capacity to release the patterned behavioral states of the ego that block an individual’s ability to fulfill their spiritual potential. This simple yet potent clearing work is a vital part of the transformation that Leslie offers her students on their journey to achieve higher states of consciousness. She believes that someone can only fully wake up by looking at and releasing their ego patterning. Leslie was born and raised in South Africa. She graduated from the University of Witswatersrand in Johannesburg with a B.A. in Fine Arts and worked professionally as a painter and art teacher while in her twenties. Art had always been an inspired way for her to express and develop the natural mystical inclination she had had since childhood. In her late twenties and thirties she found the inner pull of the mystic life to be her path, and surrendered her beloved art to give herself completely to the fulltime study of mysticism and transformation. She came to the United States in 1977, where she deepened her studies of ancient wisdom through meditation, yogic teachings and spiritual psychology. Leslie’s dedication to spirit resulted in a two-year “cave experience”, which culminated in April of 1988 when she experienced the dissolution of her old ego identity and a profound awakening. With this came the gift of being able to share with others a transmission of grace, unconditional love and healing energy, known in the East as Shakti, which has uplifting, enduring, and transformational effects on those who receive it. She shares her transmission and her wisdom with those who attend her events or undertake committed study programs with her. Leslie is the author of two books: The Marriage of Spirit—Enlightened Living in Today’s World and Returning to Oneness—The Seven Keys of Ascension, which have been translated into several languages. Her extensive teachings are also available through her spiritual training courses and on numerous audio recordings, which are available in English and Portuguese (Brazilian). Her training courses include: Spiritual Warrior Training, a self-paced correspondence course, and Teacher Training, a four-year advanced study course. Leslie is the founder of the humanitarian aid organization, Seeds of Light, whose mission is to assist with the awakening of the Global Heart, which she perceives to be the interconnectedness of all life through tolerance, forgiveness, love and compassion. Seeds of Light offers services to South Africa’s AIDS orphans and marginalized communities, and helps preserve endangered species and eco systems worldwide. Leslie lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and in Limpopo Province, South Africa.
