The Six Levels and more than Twenty Principles of Pleasure
Money, power, and pleasure, when experienced at the level of ego, appear separate from the divine field and trap you in the clutches of grasping and striving. When experienced from the level of enlightened consciousness, money, power, and pleasure are expressions of your Unique Self touching the divine.
Pleasure from the place of Unique Self is experienced as a divine caress reminding you that the world is sane and good. Ego pleasures feel narcissistic, and solidify the coiled contraction into small self. They never satisfy; you are constantly driven to get more and more, and someone else’s pleasure makes you feel your own lack.
The same pleasure experienced from the consciousness of Unique Self expands your heart and consciousness into the love-intelligence, love-beauty, and love-pleasure of All-That-Is. You are satis?ed by even the simplest pleasure, and you delight in the pleasure of others.
From Your Unique Self by Dr. Marc Gafni
Shalom Mountain’s Wisdom School hosts weekends during which we practice the holy trinity of Buddha, Sangha and Dharma. Buddha is our first person experience of God, Holiness, Tao, Atman, Ayin, Spirit or whatever name you want to give it. Sangha is the sacred, pleasurable incarnation of spirit invoked by the gathering of like minded men and women in a community of purpose and joy. Dharma transmission is a teaching or teacher that creates and “transmits” a space of open heart and in-sight from deep within a spiritual lineage, that holds, guides and illuminates the way of the authentic seeker.
Shalom Mountain’s Wisdom School is led by Dr. Marc Gafni, a renowned spiritual teacher, scholar and visionary who offers us the opportunity to participate in the Evolution of Consciousness, the Evolution of Enlightenment, Evolution of Unique Self and Outrageous Loving toward both our uniquely personal transformation and the Evolution of Love itself.
In the course of each weekend we engage mind, heart, body, soul and spirit in practices of Dharmic study, chanting, yoga, meditation, movement and other experiential integration processes.
Through this recording, you can join us for a weekend where you will experience profound aliveness, joy and transformation for yourself and for the evolution of love on all levels of reality.
