You will meet Dr Marc Gafni during his daily dharma teachings at the Summer Festival of Love. Marc dedicates his life to bringing awareness, by developing a new narrative, a new source code of culture, as a response to the outrageous pain and suffering in our world. In Europe he focuses on the dharma of Eros, Outrageous Love and Unique Self, immersing you in the fruits of his brilliant mind and overflowing heart.
Marc is a visionary thinker, social activist, passionate philosopher, and author of ten books, including the award-winning Your Unique Self: The Radical Path to Personal Enlightenment, the two-volume Radical Kabbalah, the recently published Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism: Two Models and Why They Matter and Tears: Reclaiming Ritual, Integral Religion, and Rosh Hashana.
He holds his doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University and received rabbinic certification from the chief rabbinate in Israel, as well private rabbinic ordination. He teaches on the cutting edge of philosophy in the West, helping to evolve a new ‘dharma,’ or meta-theory of integral meaning that is helping to re-shape key pivoting points in consciousness and culture.
He has been a guest editor of the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice on issues of integral spirituality, and a faculty member of JFK University. He is the co-founder, together with Ken Wilber, Sally Kempton, and Mariana Caplan (now also joined by Lori Galperin), of The Center for Integral Wisdom, a leading activist think tank dedicated to articulating a practical politics of love, and to catalyzing an emergent personal and global vision of ethics, Eros and meaning.
Together with author and social innovator Barbara Marx Hubbard, he is working on a series of new works revolving around Evolutionary Spirituality.
