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

A global spiritual leader and difference maker, 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.

Thoughts are Prayers

Most people give their energy to small words. Everyday language has become one-liners like “How are you doing?” with answers like “Not too bad” or “Well, I have been worse, but compared to everyone else I should be thankful.” You know you’re in trouble, however, when someone replies, “Why do you ask?” Yikes! These questions are actually meant to provoke a point rather than prove one. What happened to “Every day is an absolute miracle! Things are going stupendously! I have more miracles than I can count—it just gets more and more amazing!”

I started to take notice how my energy and vitality increased simply because my vocabulary started to grow larger than my experiences of the moment. So my prayers of affirmation and declaration started to shift, which began to expand my day-to-day world in a greater and dynamic way. The more I became excited about the mystery of every day the more I love the mysteries that came to me during the day.
