“United we stand; divided we are merely a distraction.” -Temple Hayes

A global spiritual leader, Temple Hayes inspires and transforms a diverse group of international new thought seekers through her books, public speaking, radio shows, digital presence and social media evangelism.

Along with Rev. Michael Beckwith, she is a member of the Leadership Council of Association for Global New Thought and active in three international nonprofits she founded: LifeRights, a peace through people initiative, The SOFI Project, a world-wide rescue plan for companion animals, and Global Peace Workers – a 501(c)3 which focuses on Peace Through People Initiative.

As CEO and Senior Minister for one of the most innovative largest Unity churches, she creates and implements strategies and nurtures a culture of community in a diverse downtown campus which includes a free-standing new thought book store and a global soul food café.

She is a much sought after speaker, collaborator and difference maker because she demonstrates not only why we need to be the change in the world but how we can co-create a world that works through everyone.

Temple recently received the People of Distinction Humanitarian Award in Washington, DC.

Keep It Light

It is so easy to be serious. In the 60’s and 70’s we were live and let live, live and pay later, take chances and explain later. In the 80’s and 90’s we became self analytical, explaining and processing and taking all day and all weekend workshops, being positive and anchoring to music or dynamic affirmations. We went from having a small role in our destiny to an obsession in the outcome of our destiny. We went from not being accountable to being accountable for everything, everyone, all of our children’s actions.

Be proactive, yes! Know your own values and do your best to live them everyday, yes!

Yet please remember that the difference makers of the world do not take on everyone else’s problems, they remain light enough that they can touch, love, shine light and leave magic on the hearts and souls of many

Two good things to consider when giving your time and energy to any endeavor::

What do I let bring me down that has nothing to do with me?

If you are helping and impacting others are you more discouraged than they are?

How can we fly if I we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders….
