Living With Enlightenment
A Journey of Love
What People Are Saying
“This is an important, exciting and transformative book by one of our wisest mystics. It is the unconventional and profoundly moving story of a unique, soul love relationship. Read it and you will be deeply inspired, not only by Brad Laughlin’s exquisite and naked prose but by the direct initiatory teachings of his great consort and illumined spiritual teacher, Leslie Temple-Thurston.”
—Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism
“In Living With Enlightenment, Brad Laughlin nakedly shares his transpersonal autobiography, shaped and illumined by his longtime partnership with Leslie Temple-Thurston. In it, we glimpse not only an extraordinary teacher-student relationship which becomes a romantic partnership, but are magnanimously invited to become spiritual warriors as well as spiritual midwives in the journey from ego-consciousness to embodied love in action. Refreshingly, amid a plethora of teachings on enlightenment as a final end-point, Brad Laughlin clarifies that, in his words, the journey of enlightenment is a never-ending continuum of spiritual evolution. Although there are milestones along the way, there is no fixed goal or endpoint because on this journey we are always learning, growing and becoming.”
—Carolyn Baker, author of Dark Gold:The Human Shadow and The Global Crisis and Collapsing Consciously: Transformative Truths For Turbulent Times.
