Project Description

Marc Gafni

About

Gafni is a visionary thinker, social activist, and passionate philosopher. He is known for his “source code teachings,” including Unique Self theory and the Five Selves, the Amorous Cosmos, A Politics of Evolutionary Love, A Return to Eros and Digital Intimacy. He is author of twenty-five books, of which the first ten have been published, including the award-winning Your Unique Self: The Radical Path to Personal Enlightenment. He holds a doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University, as well as Orthodox rabbinic ordination.

One cultural critic described Gafni as “a cross between Einstein, Da Vinci and Rumi, with a dash of Robin Williams” working at the cutting edge of the New Narrative, collaborating with a team of thinkers articulating a new vision of meaning for the world. “Gafni thinks in highly complex terms but speaks simply and directly.”

Gafni is playing a pivotal role in evolving a new ‘dharma,’ or meta-theory of meaning overflowing with heart – a new set of distinctions, that is helping to re-shape key pivoting points in global consciousness and culture.

He teaches on the cutting edge of philosophy and spirit in the West, with the aim of participating in the articulation of what Dr. Gafni together with Dr. Zak Stein and colleagues are calling CosmoErotic Humanism.

At the core of CosmoErotic Humanism is what Dr. Gafni and Dr. Stein are calling ‘First Principles and First Values,’ Anthro-Ontology and a “Universal Grammar of Value.”

This is the ground of a new shared universe story and a new narrative of identity for the new human and the new humanity. This is what they are calling the emergence from Homo sapiens to Homo Amor.

This shared story rooted in First Principles and First Values can then serve as the matrix for a global ethos for a global civilization.

Dr. Gafni is the Co-Founder, together with Ken Wilber and Sally Kempton, of the Center for Integral Wisdom where he serves as its co-President. Together with Dr. Zak Stein, they are co-leading a team of thinkers, articulating a new vision of meaning for the world. The Center is a leading activist think tank dedicated to articulating a practical politics of evolutionary love, and to catalyzing an emergent personal and global vision of ethics, Eros and meaning. Former Board Chairs include the pre-eminent futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard, John P. Mackey of Whole Foods, Kate Maloney, Lori Galperin, Carrie Kish and other esteemed thought and business leaders. Our current chairs are Shareef Malnik and Gabrielle Anwar.

Dr. Gafni is the Evolutionary Scholar in Residence – and since Barbara’s Marx Hubbard’s passing, the Director – at the Foundation for Conscious Evolution and a co-founder of the Integral Evolutionary Tantra Institute and the Outrageous Love Project with Dr. Kristina Kincaid. He is co-founder of the Unique Self Institute with Claire Molinard. All of these entities function under the larger umbrella of the Office for the Future, co-founded by Barbara Marx Hubbard, Marc Gafni, Zachary Stein, and co-chaired by Stephanie Valcke and Ivan Bossuyt. Marc Gafni currently serves as the President of the Office for the Future.

Over the past 30 years, Dr. Gafni has developed evolutionary and activist programs rooted in his commitment to what he has termed “participating in the evolution of love.” Together with author and social innovator Barbara Marx Hubbard, he has been working on a series of new works revolving around Evolutionary Spirituality.

Together with the late Barbara Marx Hubbard he co-founded One Mountain, Many Paths. The group gathers weekly every Sunday as A Global Communion of Pioneering Souls committed to articulating First Principles and First Values: A New Story for a New Humanity. Or as Marc and Barbara said together, A Planetary Awakening in Love through Unique Self Symphonies.

A Rabbinic lineage holder in Bible, Talmud, and Kabbalah, Gafni self-describes as a “citizen” of both the new lineage of World Spirituality even as he has remained loyal to the classical Hebrew lineage practices in which he was raised. He has been an editor of the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice on issues of Integral spirituality and a faculty member of J.F.K. University.

Gafni has initiated multiple leading-edge visionary programs including writing and hosting the leading National Television show on Ethics and Spirit in the Middle East, and initiated the Success 3.0 Summit and movie with John Mackey and Kate Maloney whose method and movement was to bring together key thought leaders and change agents to collaboratively evolve a bold new Integral vision of success, rooted in the entrepreneurial values of Wake Up, Grow Up, Show Up, and Evolutionary Love.
