Unique Self is a key piece of the next generation of Integral theory and practice. The first-ever Integral Spiritual Experience event, attracting about 500 participants from around the world, centered on Unique Self as part of an Integral approach to spirituality.
Marc Gafni’s keynote address to the Integral Spiritual Experience event at Asilomar on New Year’s 2009/2010, Exploring Your Unique Self, explains how Unique Self is not merely a product of the sterile mind, but an intellectual and embodied embrace of the divine. Moreover it is a form of integral knowings emerging together as “symphonic wholes evolving the world to ever increasing kindness and compassion.”
Marc explains how the Integral framework helps us to recognize the beauty, legitimacy, and divine spark, and intuition of truth that exists within every great system and expression of culture, and thereby gathers partial truths together and links them in order to reveal a world that is a whole. He then makes six points which provide the basis for understanding the major contribution of Integral thinking for the spiritual life.
Below you also find speeches from that event by Ken Wilber and Sally Kempton.
A second Keynote by Marc was about Understanding Your Unique Shadow.
