Transcript

Dr. Marc Gafni, marc gafni, gafni, unique self, true self, meditationGet comfortable. If you are listening to this while you are driving please don’t get comfortable. Anyone else, get comfortable, in a good posture, your back upright, not rigid. Your chest is lifted and open. Become aware of the sensations in your body. Feel your buttocks sitting on the seat. Feel your spinal cord lifting up to the heavens and down, rooted, as axis mundi, as what the Sufis call the pole, into the earth. Your Unique Self becomes the pole between heaven and earth. Feel the sensation of air against your skin, feel your clothes as they sit on your body, feel the air as it moves across your face, feel your muscles throughout your body. Feel your belly.

Be present with the sensations of your body, bring awareness to these sensations and when your mind wanders, gently bring your mind, in a nonjudgemental way, back to center and pick up from where you left off. Become aware of your breath. Feel the breath entering in and out of your nostrils. Feel the warm air, feel the parts of your body that move with the breath, feel your chest rising, your belly expanding and contracting. Feel your abdomen, feel your shoulders dropping.

Noticing, becoming aware, not directing your breath in any way, and stay there for a while, following your breath.

Video-Teaching with Dr. Marc Gafni: Sexuality & Shame

from the Mystery School of Love 2015 and the forthcoming Online Course “God Is Eros”


Some Statements by Dr. Marc Gafni in this video:

Guilt means I did something wrong. Shame means that I am wrong. Shame is the root of all evil.

Click to Tweet:

Until we can get to a place of sex without shame, we will live in a world of violence and depression.

Most violence in the world is in fundamentalist world, where sexuality is most repressed. The highest suicide rates in places with most sexual freedom, yet, no dharma, no sacred story of sexuality.

In best sexual moments, the meaning of life is self-evident.

Sexual shame is the experience that I cannot come home in the sexual.

The start of the Irak war was directly related to our sexual confusion.

The video ends with an invitation to a practice:

Explore how the sexual has influenced your life by writing your own sexual sacred autobiography.

Marc Gafni: What Is Dharma? – From the Summer Festival of Love 2012

Watch this beautiful teaching from the Summer Festival of Love 2012 “Loving Your Way to Enlightenment” by Marc Gafni on Dharma and read the transcript below:

Transcript of Marc Gafni’s Teaching on Dharma

Marc Gafni: When I say going into the Dharma, what do I mean? Do I mean that we are going to be in a university class? No. What I mean is Dharma. So what does it mean? Anyone?

PERSON: Teaching.

Marc Gafni: Okay, which might be true in a university class as well.

PERSONS: Deeper calling. / Vision. /Wisdom. /Transmission. /From the heart, from within. /A path. /Coming together in the Dharma.

Marc Gafni: There’s a deeper calling in the teaching, and wisdom, yeah. Who said transmission?            The Dharma comes from inside, your inner-self response to it, right? And there’s a coming together in the Dharma. The Dharma is spirit, living spirit, in the same way that love is living spirit, that chant is living spirit, that Shikantaza and meditation are living spirit.

Marc Gafni - DDharma is not Dogma, but the best take on reality we have based on pre-modern, modern, and postmodern insights, weaving together what we know about the patterns that connect.Dharma is not words; Dharma is not about the mind, even though we’re using the mind. There’s this crazy New Age idea that spread through the Western world that “wow, we’re having an experience, but for now, we’re just using the mind.” That’s nonsense, right? Dharma is the mind part, the embodied expression of spirit. So you respond to Dharma not just with your mind; your body knows whether Dharma is true, your body can feel it. The book of Job: “Through my body I vision God.” Your body knows if a Dharma’s true, your heart knows if a Dharma’s true, your mind can respond.

So when we engage in Dharma, like these mornings, we’re not doing a university lecture, we’re doing Dharma. We’re engaging whole heart, body and mind in getting a sense of the story of reality, of the grand narrative of reality, of the meta picture, of the patterns that connect. Do you begin to feel that? Let me give you a sentence, tell me if this sentence works for you: “One of the great yearnings in the year 2012 is a yearning for the patterns that connect.” Does that sentence make sense to you?

Becoming the New Human: Homo Co-Creator

Barbara Marx Hubbard, Marc Gafni & Daniel Schmachtenberger in Conversation

MarcGafni-BarbaraMarxHubbard-DanielSchmachtenbergerEnjoy this powerful conversation on the “Homo Co-Creator” between three new humans, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Marc Gafni & Daniel Schmachtenberger. It provides a brief peek into the forthcoming Video Course “Becoming the New Human” that is to be released in 2017.

This is the group discussion after a Module on the “Homo Co-Creator” with Barbara Marx Hubbard.

The full course is a call to action to play your full role in the birth of a new humanity. It asks the question:

Who do we need to become in order for humanity to make it through its current dangerous technological adolescence and to create a world that is truly commensurate with our full human, scientific, social, spiritual, and technological capabilities?

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Experience the fulfillment of knowing that your unique gifts are received by those who need them most

  • Find the delight, beauty and joy of being part of the Unique Self Symphony, which is your Evolutionary Family

  • Expand your capacity to create loving partnerships without becoming “suprasexually promiscuous”

Enjoy this 15 minute dialogue:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

In this love-filled conversation, Barbara, Marc and Daniel spontaneously agree that they are part of an Evolutionary Family and delight in the joy of this!  They continue to explore the themes of suprasex, the Co-creative Masculine, discovering vocation, and how to expand our love lists beyond romantic partners.

Daniel remarks that one of the great teachings of suprasex is the question it begs:

What am I committed to create in the world that is as significant as creating human life, that engages as much of my capacity, and that I am as committed to?

Homework:

Call your extended Evolutionary Family together and have a family meeting.


What are you committed to create that is as significant as creating human life? #EvolutionaryChurch #PoliticsOfLove
 

Becoming Fully Human

Enjoy this powerful conversation between three evolutionary geniuses Barbara Marx Hubbard, Marc Gafni & Daniel Schmachtenberger. It provides a brief peek into the forthcoming Video Course “Becoming the New Human.”

This is the group discussion after a Module on Becoming Fully Human with Daniel Schmachtenberger.

In this lesson you will learn:

  • how human history can be traced through the lens of different approaches to reconciling the split between autonomy and communion

  • how Unique Self is the place where the split between autonomy and communion disappears and why we must optimize for both instead of choosing one over the other
  • how technology can address the neural net membrane and connectivity of the human imaginal cells around the world

  • why both Liberals and Fundamentalists don’t practice tantra very well

  • how certainty and uncertainty can be reconciled and how Barbara practices that in meditation

  • this course is a post-Liberal and post-Fundamentalist course, emergent by nature, which takes the best of both and integrates everything in a higher way
