Educating Ourselves at the Edge of Evolution @ Berkeley Peace Room Center
May 27 – May 29 all-day

The Foundation for Conscious Evolution and the Center for Integral Wisdom invite you to a SACRED RETREAT hosted at Barbara Marx Hubbard’s new Berkeley Peace Room Center in Berkeley, California, on May 27-29.

A DEEP EXPLORATION INTO THE SPIRITUAL AND SOCIAL MANIFESTATION OF THE IMPULSE OF EVOLUTION WITHIN YOU AND THE WORLD

You are invited to a Sacred Retreat hosted at Barbara Marx Hubbard’s Peace Room Center in Berkeley where we will explore together the new human and the new world being born through us.

This is a major collaboration between Barbara Marx Hubbard of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution, and evolutionary scholar Marc Gafni of The Center for Integral Wisdom. The purpose of their coming together will be to offer a seminal teaching and transmission to our circles of friends, students and colleagues. They will co-create with you a resonant field where each of us can awaken to new possibilities of divine incarnation.

In this Sacred Retreat we will bring together Marc and Barbara’s original evolutionary world-views — weaving their two memetic codes toward Evolutionary Spirituality, the emergence of the new human, and the future of humanity. These codes include Barbara’s development of Conscious Evolution, Planetary Awakening, living in an evolutionary context, aligning with the creative impulse within each of us, deepened with her evolutionary understanding of the New Testament joining with Marc’s teaching on “The Universe: A Love Story”, Unique Self and Unique Self Symphony enriched by his deep evolutionary understanding of the Kabbalah.

It will be a Seminal Event, evoking inspired insights and presentations leading to in-depth dialogue, shared prayer, and revelation of each of our Essential, Unique Selves as we join vocations and purpose at the Heart of the Hub of the Wheel of Co-Creation.

You will be forming a community of pioneering souls, exploring your full potential self, the evolutionary impulse within you fulfilled.

Barbara Marx Hubbard is a voice for the Conscious Evolution of Humanity. She has been pioneering in how to apply conscious evolution in our own lives and in the world for almost 50 years, since the United States dropped the atomic bombs on Japan. She is a social innovator, inventing new social functions contributing toward an Evolutionary Democracy, such as The Peace Room to become more sophisticated than a war room, the Wheel of Co-Creation: a whole system model for Planetary Evolution, the Office for the Future, a new way to map, track, connect and communicate what is working in the world. Her work and life integrate the evolving human and the evolving world. She has taught thousands of students on Internet. Now in her new Peace Room Center in Berkeley she is activating the Foundation for Conscious Evolution to its next phase of work: To launch a Global Movement with many others activating a Unique Self Symphony toward a Planetary Awakening: Connecting Co-Creators World-wide In Love In Time. The Foundation offers a Global Communion of Pioneering Souls every other Sunday morning on telephone.  With her Co-President Nina Patrick and core team, she is expanding the conscious evolution community as a home for worldwide members of the Evolutionary Family of Humanity, all those imbued with a sense of emergence. Her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States in 1984. She invented the SYNCON MODEL for synergistic convergence at a large system scale. She gained permission from Werner von Braun to rent a Saturn 5 rocket to initiate a people’s mission to the moon.  She organized several Soviet American Dialogues during the Cold War.  She has written 8 books, including her latest, The Evolutionary Testament of Co-Creation: The Promise Will Be Kept. She is co-chair of the Center for Integral Wisdom, member of The Club of Budapest, and co-president of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. It was founded in1993 with Sidney Lanier, by a grant from Lawrence Rockefeller to serve to realize humanity’s spiritual, social and scientific/technological potential.

Dr. Marc Gafni is a visionary thinker, social activist, passionate philosopher, author and wisdom teacher. He is the co-founder of The Center for Integral Wisdom, a leading activist think tank dedicated to articulating and catalyzing an emergent personal and global vision of ethics, eros and meaning. He is the author of ten books, including the award-winning Your Unique Self, the two-volume Radical Kabbalah, and the recently published Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism. He holds his doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University, and has led international spiritual movements and learning communities, as well as created and hosted for several seasons a popular national Israeli television program on culture, meaning, and spirit on Israel’s leading network. Teaching on the cutting-edge of philosophy in the West, Gafni is a leading public intellectual helping to evolve a new ‘dharma,’ or meta-theory of Integral meaning that is helping to re-shape key pivoting points in consciousness and culture.

Important Information from Barbara Marx Hubbard:

I want to share with you how personally delighted I am to be joining genius with Dr. Marc Gafni. Like me, Marc is intensely dedicated to the evolution of humanity. I am aware of the controversy surrounding him and want you to know that together with a group of leaders in our movement I have done extensive due diligence in regard to Marc and his life. His grace, dignity and leadership under pressure, which I have witnessed countless times with dozens of others are a great testimonial to who he is today.

I am standing with many others at the Center for Integral Wisdom and beyond for Marc’s integrity and goodness. Below are links to several articles by men and women who speak to some of these issues.

The first is the Center for Integral Wisdom’s formal response, followed by 50 blogs posts by Center leadership.

Second, an article by Sally Kempton, called ”Who Is Marc Gafni?”

The third is an important article by Mariana Caplan called “An Unexpected Twist: False Complaints Against Teachers”

And finally, the summation of an Integral Institute Report by Dr. Clint Fuhs, former President of Integral Institute.

You do not need to read any of this, of course and are welcome to trust my due diligence.

I invite you to be with us for the first monthly retreat where we will explore with you the seminal theme ”Becoming a New Human.”

Testimonials from Shalom Mountain Wisdom School & Beyond

“Sending love and huge gratitude for our time together. I’m happy watching Sunday’s Dharma on suffering, the voice of protest to God, and the mysterious, incomprehensible resolution of the whole thing in the Heart, keep working me. I’m hungry to dive even deeper into Judah & Tamar, looking for sharper insight into what indirect responsibility requires of me, and what new pattern of “brotherhood” I am to remember and enact.” – Jeff, Counselor & Retreat Leader; participant, Shalom Mountain Wisdom School

“Our sangha surrounds me as I’m moving through my day in the world. I hear the sound and feel the memory vibration of our chanting moving with me. Your teachings, Marc, are absorbed and have expanded my being. With outrageous love, each one of you touched me deeply and cracked open my heart.” – Isabella, participant, Shalom Mountain Wisdom School

“What an incredible weekend we had. I am so grateful to have had this experience with you and still feel the power and energy of the dharma coursing through me. I have already begun my outrageous acts of love by reaching out to my family of origin with an open heart and recognize that the healing begins with me.” – Wendy, participant, Shalom Mountain Wisdom School

Loving Your Way to Enlightenment: The Path of Outrageous Love

With Marc Gafni

November 3-6

Tuition: $750

Read more and Register Now >>>

This weekend is about the search for the beloved. It is about falling in love with the divine, your beloved and everything else.

“We live in a world of outrageous pain. The only response to outrageous pain is outrageous love.” – Marc Gafni

What you want in your deepest source is not ordinary love. It is not an ordinary relationship with reality or with the beloved, divine or human.  What you want in your deepest essence is Outrageous Love. You want to live an extraordinary life.  Do not settle for anything less!

One direct and highly practical inquiry will sit at the core of all of our sacred play this weekend!  What does it take to be “lived as love” as the inner quality of your daily life? But not just as ordinary love. Not tepid love.  Outrageous Love!


During this weekend, we invite you to a level of practice, insight, and aliveness, which can potentially transform the rest of your life.  At the core of the whole thing is one practice. Loving Your Way to Enlightenment. Enlightenment doesn’t require heavy effort and asceticism. Enlightenment only requires that you choose love in all circumstances. Making this simple insight alive and real in your life is the change that changes everything. Something deep within us recognized that this is the secret.

Summer Festival of Love 2017

Our theme this year will be:

A Return to Eros

Living the Erotic Life

The Festival will take place in the beautiful grounds of Meeuwenveen Retreat center in Holland.

The Summer Festival of Love is an annual event organized by the Mystery school of Love, that takes place every summer in Holland.

The Mystery School of Love was created 7 years ago by Marc Gafni and Chahat Corten. It is an Esoteric Mystery School on the leading edge of human evolution, dedicated to deep, inquiry and practice on Eros, Outrageous Love and Unique Self, which represent the main topics at the heart of Marc Gafni’s spiritual teachings..

We recognize that we are living lives of extreme and rare privilege. As such we experience our obligation to explore and chart the next evolutionary steps in human expression of compassion, integrity, love and enlightenment.

In our inquiry, we include the great wisdom of the spiritual traditions, passed down through history and held by the great religions and philosophies of the pre-modern world. With reverence, we also receive the body of wisdom and insights from the modern and postmodern worlds.

At the same time, we realize that Spiritual wisdom continues to evolve and that it is our unique and joyful obligation to respond to this invitation of Spirit with our whole heart, body and mind in order to create and express new and higher ways of loving each other in compassion and integrity.

Teacher in residence : Marc Gafni

The Teacher in Residence at the Mystery School of love is Dr. Marc Gafni, an internationally recognized spiritual artist, teacher, scholar and social activist. Marc is the author of seven books including Soul Prints, The Mystery of Love and the audio series On The Erotic and the Holy, the awarded Your Unique Self and “Return to Eros “, co-written with Dr Kristina Kincaid, available in July 2017.

Marc is the co-founder and teacher in residence of Center for Integral Wisdom.

Co-creating the Festival of love

Each summer, together with a great team of seasoned teachers, bodyworkers and Outrageous Lovers, we gather and co-create a Summer Festival of Love, in which participants are invited to ‘play a larger game’ and to recognize their inherent greatness and capacity for Outrageous Love.

Through the combination of Marc Gafni’s cutting edge teachings, and a large range of embodied practices, we offer participants a practical guide to evolve their capacity to Love, and to live a fully Erotic and meaningful life.

Come and join us!

A world in which all women and men of all shapes and sizes, all colors and ages, are affirmed and honored – not by the shape of their body, but by the radiance of their hearts and souls.

With outrageous love, each one of you touched me deeply and cracked open my heart.” – Isabella, participant, Shalom Mountain Wisdom School

“What an incredible weekend we had. I am so grateful to have had this experience with you and still feel the power and energy of the dharma coursing through me. I have already begun my outrageous acts of love by reaching out to my family of origin with an open heart and recognize that the healing begins with me.” – Wendy, participant, Shalom Mountain Wisdom School

“Addressing the most difficult and taboo questions that most of the world simply pushes under the rug, Marc Gafni’s Wisdom School dives deeply into the heart of the human experience. From grief to desire, betrayal to passionate true love, Marc’s teachings leave no stone unturned, showing us how every experience can bring us back to greater unity with humanity and with life itself. The result is a community of wise, radiant, open-hearted people, who are primed to actively contribute their unique gifts to the world, making the planet a better place for all of us.” – Jena la Flamme, author of the Secrets of Pleasurable Weight Loss; participant, Shalom Mountain Wisdom School

We are all lucky to be blessed by this amazing Tzadek who so magically holds us to and in the ancient dharma and explains lifetimes of lessons in minutes or hours! – Mike, student circle; Founder, Client Engagement Academy

“I finally found a teacher who has answers to any questions, the teacher that opens my heart and mind. The teacher who meets my soul…to enable the teaching to penetrate me, my whole being and heart, to fully express my uniqueness and joy and to make beautiful encounters, and experience outrageous love.” – Annie, participant, Summer Festival in Holland

“What an outrageous week! Marc’s teachings really penetrated me very deeply. I came ‘home’ this week. I experienced very deep breakthroughs that I have been able to embody as well. I am so thankful! Life-changing!” – Marion, participant, Summer Festival in Holland

This weekend is about the search for the beloved. It is about falling in love with the divine, your beloved and everything else.

“We live in a world of outrageous pain. The only response to outrageous pain is outrageous love.” – Marc Gafni

What you want in your deepest source is not ordinary love. It is not an ordinary relationship with reality or with the beloved, divine or human.  What you want in your deepest essence is Outrageous Love. You want to live an extraordinary life.  Do not settle for anything less!

One direct and highly practical inquiry will sit at the core of all of our sacred play this weekend!  What does it take to be “lived as love” as the inner quality of your daily life? But not just as ordinary love. Not tepid love.  Outrageous Love!


During this weekend, we invite you to a level of practice, insight, and aliveness, which can potentially transform the rest of your life.  At the core of the whole thing is one practice. Loving Your Way to Enlightenment. Enlightenment doesn’t require heavy effort and asceticism. Enlightenment only requires that you choose love in all circumstances. Making this simple insight alive and real in your life is the change that changes everything. Something deep within us recognized that this is the secret.

22 – 29 July 2017

Summer Festival of Love 2017

Our theme this year will be:

A Return to Eros

Living the Erotic Life

The Festival will take place in the beautiful grounds of Meeuwenveen Retreat center in Holland.

The Summer Festival of Love is an annual event organized by the Mystery school of Love, that takes place every summer in Holland.

The Mystery School of Love was created 7 years ago by Marc Gafni and Chahat Corten. It is an Esoteric Mystery School on the leading edge of human evolution, dedicated to deep, inquiry and practice on Eros, Outrageous Love and Unique Self, which represent the main topics at the heart of Marc Gafni’s spiritual teachings..

We recognize that we are living lives of extreme and rare privilege. As such we experience our obligation to explore and chart the next evolutionary steps in human expression of compassion, integrity, love and enlightenment.

In our inquiry, we include the great wisdom of the spiritual traditions, passed down through history and held by the great religions and philosophies of the pre-modern world. With reverence, we also receive the body of wisdom and insights from the modern and postmodern worlds.

At the same time, we realize that Spiritual wisdom continues to evolve and that it is our unique and joyful obligation to respond to this invitation of Spirit with our whole heart, body and mind in order to create and express new and higher ways of loving each other in compassion and integrity.

Teacher in residence : Marc Gafni

The Teacher in Residence at the Mystery School of love is Dr. Marc Gafni, an internationally recognized spiritual artist, teacher, scholar and social activist. Marc is the author of seven books including Soul Prints, The Mystery of Love and the audio series On The Erotic and the Holy, the awarded Your Unique Self and “Return to Eros “, co-written with Dr Kristina Kincaid, available in July 2017.

Marc is the co-founder and teacher in residence of Center for Integral Wisdom.

Co-creating the Festival of love

Each summer, together with a great team of seasoned teachers, bodyworkers and Outrageous Lovers, we gather and co-create a Summer Festival of Love, in which participants are invited to ‘play a larger game’ and to recognize their inherent greatness and capacity for Outrageous Love.

Through the combination of Marc Gafni’s cutting edge teachings, and a large range of embodied practices, we offer participants a practical guide to evolve their capacity to Love, and to live a fully Erotic and meaningful life.

Come and join us!

Summer Festival of Love 2018: Evolutionary Intimacy – In Search of The Beloved @ Meeuwenveen Retreat Center
Jul 29 – Aug 4 all-day

Evolutionary-Intimacy-SFoL2018There is a deep confusion in culture today around issues of intimacy and sexuality. We live in a world drenched in sexual shame.This shame is at the root of all sexual abuse and the #me-too movement is currently bringing all these issues to the open.

We desperately need a new vision on Intimacy and Sexuality that can address and evolve these issues and act as a memory of the future – A future in which men and women can experience the goodness and aliveness of their desire and be free of sexual shame.

At the Summer Festival of Love, we stand for a world in which we’re aroused by Love.

A world in which all women and men of all shapes and sizes, all colors and ages, are affirmed and honored – not by the shape of their body, but by the radiance of their hearts and souls.

Join us to unfold this new vision!
