The Art of the Square - a Tool for Spiritual and Personal Growth

Friday, May 5th, 2-2:30pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern / 9pm GMT / 7am Sat. May 6th Sydney

Ever feel stuck in an emotion, belief system, or reactive pattern, and just don't know how to get out of it?  Feel like old ways of reacting get in the way of your spiritual awakening?  Rev. Connie knows a secret that can release these stuck places, open your heart, and bring a feeling of inner peace.

Developed by Leslie Temple-Thurston, founder of CoreLight, the Square is one of the most effective and efficient ways she has found to transform and release stuck patterns, on the spot!  It is based upon finding a polarity you are stuck in, such as Acting vs. Not Acting, or Pleasing Others vs. Displeasing Others.  We'll go through a short version of a square on the show, and you'll have the essential steps to do your own.

Have a pen and a notebook handy to work on your own Square!

For further exploration and in-depth understanding of the Square technique, read "The Marriage of Spirit" by Leslie Temple-Thurston.
