Step into the Heart of the Center for Integral Wisdom Trans-lineage Practice…
The future of our world depends on the great realization of love: that which unites us is infinitely greater then that which divides us. For the first time in the history of the human race, we are able to rise beyond the place of our birth, our religion of origin, our family circle and choose to live our highest truth. This truth transcends and includes all of our personal history even as it invites us to our singular and unique evolutionary destiny.
The Spiritual teaching for this age must be drawn from all of the great traditions of Spirit, pre-modern, modern, and post-modern. These great understandings must be lovingly integrated into a space of open heart, community and insight that has the power and the compassion to guide us on the next stage of our personal and global journey.
We live in an intimate Universe.
Every single pore of you is loved and accepted in Love.
Every single corner of you is actually seen in Love.
Every corner of you is held and witnessed in Love.
Every part of you is spoken to and addressed in Love.
Dr. Marc Gafni
This message from the Universe itself most of us can receive…… on a good day.
When the days are not so good, for most of us doubt kicks in and depending on the level of training and practice we have done, we are able to hold ourselves and deal with these hard and often lonely moments….
Stepping into private study with Marc is giving your self the actual experience that the message above, gets incarnate in human form and takes place in a chair next to you. From there a holy, total personal supportive loving relationship is being build.
In private study Marc offers a deep lineage transmission together with a deeply personal supportive loving relationship that addresses ALL of YOU.
In this context you will open up and also ground levels of Your Unique Greatness and Your Unique Brilliance that are beyond your imagination.
Do you hold big dreams, do you want to embody a big vision? (And big dreams and big visions can be public and can be private.)
What you bring down into this world is not only for you, it is evolving the very source code of all our lives.
In working and studying with Dr. Marc Gafni you will be both lovingly, totally challenged and lovingly, totally held at the same time as the most epic version of yourself.
Marc’s brilliant mind, his creativity and his deep heart are actually totally at your disposal.
You can totally use of all he has to offer for the creation of your deep dreams, which are in fact the dreams of our world.
Give yourself the best!
The lineage is transmitted by a lineage master.
The term means different things in different traditions. We use it to mean someone who not only knows, but also has absorbed into and incarnated in their being, the wisdom of his or her lineage. This does not suggest that a lineage master is perfect or incapable of making mistakes.
It in no way suggests you give over your personal authority and responsibility for your life to your teacher.
What it does suggest is a passionate commitment to love, truth, courageous transformation, unflinching integrity, ruthless honesty that is demanding and forgiving, even as it merges with unending compassion, selfless service, wide and deep mind and heart.
It also suggests a mastery of levels of inner depth, wisdom, meaning and heart, which the teacher– with all of his heart and mind – is committed to gifting to you.
Much as some of the classic traditions, Dr. Marc has accepted a group of students.
Unlike those traditions, Dr. Marc will both give genuine transmission as a teacher even as he co-creates with his autonomous students, a study track that meets their unique needs of heart, body and mind.
We reject for our community the image of the teacher as Guru even as we reject for our community the image of teacher as pal or buddy, who just happens to be teaching.
In our community we believe that the teachers must incarnate both Spiritual attainment, humility, willingness to own mistakes made, a commitment to constant deepening, giving over of his life fully to the Mystery, profound natural Spiritual authority, profound respect for his students autonomy, coupled with radical delight at all he can learn from his students. This dialectical balance requires a profound and mature autonomous student who can both be a student and master at the same moment.
You absolutely can be a full practitioner in a particular lineage and study with a particular teacher AND be a full Trans-lineage Path student at the same time.
The Sacred Teacher Student Covenant: Privilege and Responsibility
- The student commits to purify and open their heart and mind to receive mind and heart transmission.
- The teacher commits to purify and open his heart to give heart and mind transmission.
- The teacher will own his Spiritual responsibility and authority even as the student owns his Spiritual responsibility and autonomy.
- Teacher and student recognize both the fixed nature and the fluidity of their roles. A deep commitment to honor and uphold the teacher is taken on by the student even as the teacher commits to guide, honor and love the student.
