The Aaron / Q’uo Dialogues
An Extraordinary Conversation Between Two Spiritual Guides
by Barbara Brodsky and Carla Rueckert
Developed from the transcripts of nine weekends of joint channeling, The Aaron Q’uo Dialogues emphasizes, “living, thinking, and acting in service to others,” and avoiding the “negative polarity” of focusing exclusively on service to self.
The Aaron Q’uo Dialogues shows how fear – fear of being too human, fear of death and dying, fear of failing to change with the times – holds us back, limiting our full potential and enjoyment of life.
Addressing questions from a wide range of spiritual seekers who attended these sessions, Aaron and Q’uo answer a host of fundamental questions for living with more awareness and compassion. With warmth and humor, these conversations offer the spiritual seeker a valuable template for living a life of selflessness and spiritual peace.
