Birthing the New Human and the New Humanity
A 7-Week Online Video Course with Dr. Marc Gafni
When looking at the state of the world today, if your head is not in the sand, you feel a sense of urgency.
There is outrageous beauty and goodness. But there is also outrageous pain. But not of the ordinary kind. There is the pain of dislocation as we enter a phase shift in human history where all of the old narratives of identity are collapsing. In this 11th hour, as we are poised between utopia and dystopia, we have no authentic sense of who we are and what is our personal place in this pivotal moment in human history.
The old stories cannot hold us. But there are no new stories – rooted in genuine wisdom – that are emerging to guide us.
But You know there is something for you to do. And yet, what is it? You often feel powerless in the face of our global challenges. You cannot quite figure out what is yours to do and what is not. There is a gap between your ability to feel the pain and your ability to heal the pain. And in that gap you close your heart.
Maybe, you go about your business, you handle what you can, but your heart is fundamentally closed. And since you have only one heart, you cannot close only parts of your heart. Your closed heart leaks destructively throughout your life and loves.
Alternatively, you exhaust yourself by running from activity to meeting to the next book trying to figure out how to save the planet. Your heart is open but confused and adrift without anchors or a genuine sense of alignment with a coherent vision. So you make no real headway. Your parents and quite a few friends think you are a bit…off. You are lonely. You feel as if the weight of the planet rests on your shoulders. But you have no plan that makes any sense.
You realize that doing business as usual cannot be the solution to these problems. And yet all the spiritual and political solutions are so clearly inadequate. Neither science, nor the Human Potential movement, nor the great traditions – neither capitalism, nor communism, nor any of the other political systems – are equipped to respond effectively to the current crisis.
But you cannot settle your unrest. It feels to you – although you may not quite name it that way – like divine unrest.
You want to play a larger game! You want to participate in the big moves that need to be made now. You want to take your seat at the table of history. But you have not quite received an invitation to the table. Or have you?
You feel like being a Homo sapiens, in the old falsely contrived sense of brutal competition to survive, is not who you are at the very core of your being.
Strange as it sounds, you feel like reality is directly and even intimately addressing you.
You have an intuition that what you do really matters. You understand that you are not average. You intuit, although you may not quite say it that way, that perhaps you are at the leading edge of evolution. You feel like your story is personally implicated in the larger evolutionary story. And when your therapist tells you this is grandiosity and your nondual teacher tells you this is the delusion of ego, it does not sit right with you.
You feel that somehow your transformation needs to serve as a strange attractor. Your vision feels like a “memory of the future”. Your entire life feels like what systems theory calls a minor fluctuation point that can jump the entire system to an entirely new level of elegant and intimate order.
If any of this even vaguely resonates with you, then Congratulations. You have stumbled into the right group of people. You are the right person in the right place at the right time. We prepared this course for YOU!
Pay What You Want
We offer this course on a Pay What You Want model.
WHY Pay What You Want
We are a not-for-profit, FOR-Purpose organization with the mission to respond to the evolutionary crisis, our “global action paralysis that is based on a global intimacy disorder” by “evolving the source code of culture” through telling and disseminating into culture a new story of identity, power, love, sexuality, spirituality, and the universe itself. That new narrative has the potential to connect us all and enable shared global action in the face of existential risk. It has great transformative powers and can initiate what Barbara Marx Hubbard and Dr. Marc Gafni have called “a planetary awakening in love through a unique self symphony” and the evolution from Homo sapiens to “Homo Amor.”
We share that narrative together with transformative practices through a series of groundbreaking books, courses, movies, events, and other media available on this website and others.
We want this material to be available to everyone, independent of financial resources. At the same time, we assume that you will want to give back to us both for the value you receive that may well transform your identity and the way you live your life AND to enable us to continue doing this important work.
So, here is the experiment:
You can get access to the course now by paying a price that you pick yourself. To determine that price you may want to consider:
- What a course like this would normally cost on the market (A price we would normally set for this course would be $297.)
- Your anticipation of value (What do you think you will get out of taking this 7 week transformative course with 20+ hours of videos, transcripts, and practices? Research has shown that if you expect a high value, it is also more likely for you to get this value. So we encourage you to aim high.)
- What represents a gesture of commitment for you to really study and continue this course, even if at some point resistance may arise (which – with transformational work – it always does.)
- Your own financial means (Do you consider yourself below or above average? If the average pays a certain price, what would be an adequate contribution for you? You may also want to consider the idea of giving a tenth of your income to the institution of your choice that is supporting your spiritual growth.)
- Your desire to support our continued work.
Here is a second way to engage this experiment:
You can access the course for the lowest possible price now (or give any amount that feels right for you right now) and make a decision later about making a one-time or regular donation to our organization.
That way you get to experience the value of the course and consider your donation based on the value you received, your financial means, and your desire to support our continued work.
In our own experience, there are books and courses we bought that in the end didn’t mean much to us, while others have been deeply meaningful, transformative, or even life-changing.
Paying a fixed price doesn’t take any of that into account. It doesn’t honor the subjective value you receive nor the personal exchange that happens between us. It replaces a meaningful relationship by a business transaction.
“Pay-What-You-Want” invites us all to pause and reflect on the value we bring to one another. It makes for more meaningful relationships, even with people we haven’t met in person.
We want you to know that – even though a lot of this course will be automated – we are real people here on the other side – people who are putting their hearts and souls into this work – people who are here to assist you in getting what you want out of our offers – people who are with you on the path of self-evolution and co-creating a world that works for all.
Whatever you choose – whatever price now or donation later – we will not judge you. It is our deepest heart’s desire to give you access to this material that we think should be available for everybody on this planet who desires so. This is why we make it available in this way.
If it is your heart’s desire to give back to us and enable us to continue doing our work, we are delighted. Just know that we are with you – no matter what.
If at any time you want to reach out to us with any kind of request, you can do so by writing us. We will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
If you have a personal message for us during the registration process, there is a field in the form you submit where you can add that message. Again, we will do our best to read every message and – if needed – get back to you as soon as possible. However, if you really need our support, write to us as firstname.lastname@example.org.
