  • What Thomas Hanna Said to His Students About Somatics in 1990


    Mary Ann VoorhiesReported by: Mary Ann Gray Voorhies

    This is what Thomas Hanna said to his student in his class of 1990.

    We as students practice with each other so that we can experience what the sensations are like with our clients.  This experience guides us how to help others.  These are not just manipulative techniques.  Our experience guides us.  We do this so that we can learn to control our hands in such a way that we can almost tell the effect on the client.  It’s important to understand what that other person feels.  Become very aware.  How can I help this person?  This leads us into an understanding of what Carl Rogers came up with as an innovator in psychotherapy in relating to another person.

    Instead of the one person imposing an authoritarian stance on the other person, we as somatic educators must learn unconditional positive regard for this person as though we were that person.  It’s not that you pretend to love this person but to always have RESPECT for the person no matter who that person is.  For if we have this attitude we realize that this person is me.  Very few people do this.

  • Unique Selves in a Self-Organizing Universe


    From an unedited draft of the forthcoming book Towards a New Politics of Evolutionary Love
    by Dr. Marc Gafni & Dr. Zachary Stein

    Dixit-Motiwala-unsplashThe core structural principle from Integral Meta-Theory involved in the formation of a Unique Self Symphony is the scientific principle of self-organization. The idea of self-organization is according to many the single most important scientific idea to emerge in the last sixty years. It exists at every level of reality and across all four quadrants. While many scientific accounts focus only on self-organization in systems and structures in biology or cybernetics (i.e., Lower-Right reductionism), there is a whole history of work in psychology and social theory dedicated to modeling how minds and cultures are complex dynamical systems, that evolve and self-organize in remarkable ways.

    Multiple scientific fields, when held in an Integral embrace, tell us that self-organization is a basic principle of reality at all levels. Most forms of evolutionary emergence are a function of this ubiquitous tendency of all life and matter toward self-organization. This leads to the idea of an inherently creative cosmos, always evolving and organizing at higher and higher levels. Throughout the evolution of the world it appears that self-organization is often catalyzed via the leveraging of uniqueness. When you look at the emergence of complex processes in nature that display remarkable forms of self-organization, such as an ecosystem like swamp or rainforest, they are always complex symbiotic systems in which there are an endless number of unique niches.

    This is why one of the core ideas behind the new politics of outrageous love is enabling self-organization at the level of human culture. So we must ask, what enables self-organization at the level of human culture? The answers is clear and in keeping with both the best of what we know about evolutionary theory and the best of our ideas for political and personal Enlightenment: the catalyst of self-organization in human socio–cultural systems is the Unique Self. Paradoxically, this means that the “shape” every human needs to assume in order to contribute to the creation of a healthy social organism is unique. Strange as it may sound, a just and healthy society needs to “socially engineer” for uniqueness, especially the institutions that shape human personalities and self-understandings: schools, news media, entertainment industries, computer technologies industries, etc. The whole social system would be like an incubator for uniqueness.

    Summer Festival of Love, marc gafni, dr. marc gafni, gafni, love, summer festival, center for integral wisdom



  • Blessed by Everything – Video by Marc Gafni


    Dr. Marc Gafni: What causes the emergence of the post-tragic level of consciousness is always the deepening into what we might call emotional maturity or wisdom.How can you feel the pain of the world and still be empowered?

    How can you become a beacon of light and love in the midst of all the pain you face – both yourself and the pain you see in the world?

    How can you become a beneficial healing presence on the planet?

    These are the questions that we need to answer in order to create a Politics of Love and an Integral Planet.

    In the video below, CIW President Dr. Marc Gafni shares a daily practice from his tradition called participating in the pain of Eros in exile. What that means is that you open yourself up to the pain of the world without becoming dysfunctional.

    That means you plug into the portal of pain in a way that’s powerful rather than impotent.

    In this mystical practice that Marc Gafni transmits in his video, you open up to the pain fully for 5 minutes a day. You might do it by getting silent, bringing to mind images of pain, and letting your mind dwell in it. You might do it by reading a newspaper article.

    By opening yourself to the pain fully for a limited amount of time, you realize a deep mystical knowing: When you enter the pain, you find yourself participating in the sweetness of the Divine.

    The alive personal intelligence of All-That-Is is both the infinity of intimacy and the infinity of pain. The Divine pain is infinite. In this sacred practice, you are entering into God’s heart and are participating in the pain of the personal Eros of All-That-Is. In that participation, an infinite sweetness emerges.

    Yeats wrote of this sweetness, in the understated but raw Eros of his verse:

    When such as I

    Cast out remorse

    So great a sweetness fills my breast

    We can dance and we can sing

    We are blest by everything

    And everything we look upon

    Is blest.

    When you step inside, you are blessed by everything. The contraction melts away and you feel the aliveness and awakeness of the feminine Goddess Divine – the personal embrace of the loving intelligence of the universe.

    You have the power to love and dance and sing and create.

    You are empowered to become a beneficial healing presence on the planet.

    Enjoy this video by Dr. Marc Gafni:
