About Brad Laughlin




Brad Laughlin

“When we balance our inner masculine and feminine, our hearts open, and that creates doorways in consciousness to birth in us a fuller understanding of who we truly are. Very quickly, we begin to discover our authentic self, which is our soul essence.”

—Brad Laughlin

Brad Laughlin has been the Executive Director of CoreLight since 1993. His partner of 23 years, Leslie Temple-Thurston, is CoreLight’s original founder, and together they incorporated it as a non-profit organization in 1997.

As well as overseeing the administrative side of CoreLight, Brad’s dedication is finding innovative ways of helping people awaken during these challenging times. He works with CoreLight students on a one-on-one basis using the ancient Truth teachings of the various yogic paths as well as the processing methods developed by Leslie to dissolve old, limiting ego structures. He also offers transformative seminars on relevant topics based on the CoreLight principles of integration and unity consciousness.

He believes that global change can be accomplished through each person’s willingness to show up and get involved. He realizes that only by our changing our personal state of consciousness—how we see and relate to one another, the world and nature as a whole—can humanity pass through this current time of transition in a sustainable way. Lately Brad has focused on studying and understanding the world’s economic and energy systems, which many see as essentially destructive forces holding old, outmoded and unsustainable structures in place, threatening our survival. Brad facilitates courses about this vital information, using a spiritual lens and spiritual tools to help create positive change. He holds a vision for a sustainable, peaceful world of heart-centered consciousness, and for planetary breakthrough rather than breakdown. Since 1998, Brad has facilitated spiritual retreats and tours to sacred sites worldwide, including: South Africa, Egypt, France, Greece and the American Southwest. He is also a co-founder of Seeds of Light, CoreLight’s humanitarian arm, serving marginalized communities and AIDS orphans in South Africa. One of Brad’s passions is producing and directing short films about CoreLight’s and Seeds of Light’s work. Brad is a CoreLight minister, sits on CoreLight’s Board of Directors, and teaches occasionally in Corelight’s “Online Enlightenment Studies” program. With Leslie Temple-Thurston, he is co-author of two books, The Marriage of Spirit—Enlightened Living in Today’s World and Returning to Oneness—The Seven Keys of Ascension. He is also author of Discovering Archangel Michael—A Journey of Opening the Heart.

For many years Brad has taught seminars on the subjects of his books and has offered private spiritual counseling sessions for individuals. He has a B.S. degree from Duke University, attended Yale University’s Divinity School, and lives part-time in Santa Fe, New Mexico and in Limpopo Province, South Africa.

When we learn to listen to and follow our heart,
life takes on a whole new adventure. We find magic,
mystery, joy, fulfillment, abundance and a steady
awakening to God-consciousness within us.
