A Spirituality of Uniqueness: Daring to Question the Dogma of Oneness
We usually think of enlightenment as a movement away from the limited sense of self, the egoic or the personal and towards a liberated, impersonal or universal sense of self; a move beyond our sense of Uniqueness, beyond the merely Personal. In this teleseminar, integral–evolutionary spiritual teacher Dr. Rabbi Marc Gafni will present his latest conception in which the ultimate expression of spiritual attainment is understood as the realization of what he, together with Ken Wilber and others have called the “Unique Self.” According to Gafni, this powerful emergent realization, rooted in the Kabbalah and other wisdom traditions, distinguishes between egoic specialness or uniqueness and that experience of radical enlightened uniqueness, which emerges only after evolution beyond the contractions of ego and separate self. “Egoic uniqueness needs to be overcome, whereas enlightened uniqueness is to be embraced and fully lived.” Gafni will explain why he feels that Unique Self is the most powerful and complete expression of enlightenment, love, Eros and joy, and why it will fundamentally challenge—and evolve—our entire understanding of life purpose, enlightenment and just about everything else.
About Dr. Marc Gafni
Dr. Marc Gafni is a rabbi and iconlastic teacher of Kabbalah and Evolutionary Spirituality. He is a core founder and faculty member of iEvolve Global Practice Community as well as director of the Integral Life Spiritual Center of Integral Life. He has written seven books, including the national bestseller Soul Prints, and The Mystery of Love, a Kabbalistic exploration of the relationship between the sexual, the erotic, and the sacred. Gafni's teaching is marked by a deep transmission of open heart, love and leading edge provocative wisdom. Gafni's path of personal evolution, in both the agony and the ecstasy of what he calls “sacred autobiography,” woven together with profound reverence and reading of sacred texts have formed the context for his personal realization. It is from this place of broken-hearted humility, radical joy and and sacred audacity that he teaches.
Today's leading spiritual luminaries are converging online for an unprecedented exploration.
Their question: How does the spiritual path need to evolve to serve the evolutionary needs of humanity in the 21st century?
The great wisdom traditions emerged at a time when life was radically different than it is today. The world has changed immeasurably in the past two thousand years. And human beings have changed along with it.
We are a new humanity facing a new set of challenges—and a new set of opportunities.
How can we liberate the spiritual impulse from the outmoded structures of the past, so it can guide us in creating the future?
We’d like to invite you to join us in our quest for answers.
Each event will explore this question from a unique angle. We'll look at how the discovery of evolution is giving birth to an entirely new spiritual impulse-- as well as a new framework for engaging in spiritual practice. We'll ask how the great traditions of the past can be brought up to date and kept relevant to a rapidly changing, increasingly complex world. We'll explore some of the new, more integral forms that spirituality is taking, from the emergence of new paths of self-inquiry to the birth of collective enlightenment. And we'll think together about the vital role each of us can now play in creating a more enlightened future for humanity.
