Elliott Ingersoll & Marc Gafni: Unique Self - A Bridge Between Psychology and Spirituality
In these dialogues, Dr. Elliott Ingersoll, who is the Associate Academic Director or the Center for Integral Wisdom, and Dr. Marc Gafni, the Co-Founder and Director of CIW, have partnered up to explore how the Unique Self teaching can act as a bridge between Psychology and Spirituality.
In part 2, they discuss how the Unique Self teaching adds a whole dimension to the more classical psychological teachings on Shadow. Amongst others they explore how mainstream psychology reduces our authentic grandeur to grandiosity and how to let anger show us the way to our vitality.
Listen to these two dialogues with Marc Gafni and Elliott Ingersoll:
Elliott Ingersoll in these talks about Your Unique Self:
“I look at your book [Your Unique Self] as also a book about what I would call transcendent Psychology because you have really mapped what is going on: How do you find yourself on the Western path and lose yourself on the Eastern path?”
“And then why hasn’t it gone further? Are people really that lazy or stupid? Or is there a piece missing?”
“And I think you have found this missing piece, what you are calling the Unique Self.”
“I recommend your book [Your Unique Self] to anybody who’s listening, and if a student of mine is listening, they know I don’t say this lightly: I really think your book is the best bridge between psychology and spirituality.”
