Integral Spiritual Experience 1: Shadow Keynote

At the Integral Spiritual Experience 1, which focused on theme of Unique Self, Dr. Marc Gafni gave a keynote presentation on “Understanding Your Unique Shadow.”

In this presentation, Dr. Marc Gafni sketches the framework for a revolutionary leap in our understanding of the human shadow.

Just as there is no light without the dark, there is no Unique Self without Unique Shadow. Shadow is the aspects of our lives and full engagement with the world that have yet to come online. It is life unlived, those dark avenues of experience that are yet to be realized. By tracing Shadow back to its timeless source, we are led directly to the heart of it all.

According to Gafni, your Unique Self and your Unique Shadow are a double helix of light and dark, coiled into the patterns of becoming. In his book, Your Unique Self, Gafni writes: “The greatest paradox of spirit is that your inferior function itself is also your greatest gateway to the numinous. So, for example, if your inferior function is a particular dynamic in the way that you love, it will also be the place of your greatest gift and Unique Self calling.”

Integral Spiritual Experience 1: Unique Self

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.
