Conscious Evolution 

Barbara Marx Hubbard

In this era of government gridlock, economic and ecological devastation, and seemingly intractable global violence, our future is ever more ripe for — and in need of — fresh, creative reimagining. With her clear-eyed, inspiring, and sweeping vision of a possible global renaissance in the new millennium, Barbara Marx Hubbard shows us that our current crises are not the precursors of an apocalypse but the natural birth pains of an awakened, universal humanity. This is our finest hour. 

Conscious Evolution highlights the tremendous potential of newfound scientific knowledge, technological advances, and compassionate spirituality and illustrates the opportunities that each of us has to fully participate in this exciting stage of human history.

As we do, we will bring forth all that is within us and not only save ourselves, but evolve our world.

Your Unique Self 

Dr. Marc Gafni 

Underlying the vision behind democracy is the recognition that every individual has dignity, adequacy and worth. This democratic understanding of the worth and standing of the individual lies at the core of what the West calls enlightenment. The Western idea of enlightenment, rooted in the great vision of the Biblical prophets, is generally understood to have entered mainstream consciousness through the political democratic movements of the mid 18th century. Western enlightenment is primarily concerned with the democratization of political power.

 

Classical enlightenment, sometimes called Eastern enlightenment because it was greatly emphasized in the East, is about the individual merging into the greater one. The appearance of separate self is an illusion, which must be overcome as the individual realizes that one is really not separate at all but part of the one. The goal of Eastern enlightenment is moving beyond the grasping ego and desperately seeking separate self by attaining a state of consciousness in which the illusion of separateness was dissolved in the greater one. This path of classical enlightenment is seen as the path beyond suffering.

 

Unique Self enlightenment brings the Eastern and Western understandings about enlightenment together, into a higher Integral World Spirituality embrace.

Unique Self enlightenment is based on your commitment to transcend separate self into the one, even as you realize that that essence sees through your unique perspective. Unique Self opens the door to the potential democratization of enlightenment. To awaken to your Unique Self is to be lived as God, which, in truth, means to be lived as love.

A Return to Eros

Dr. Marc Gafni & Dr. Kristina Kincaid

Discover the hidden relationship between Erotic, the Sexual and the Sacred.

None of the four old philosophies about sex are sufficient to inspire us or even hold us in our sexuality. Sex is not merely negative or positive. Sex is not just neutral, nor is it merely sacred because it creates babies.

Erotic Mystics from the hidden tradition of Solomon's temple taught a secret doctrine. Sex is the source of all wisdom. Sex is an expression of the erotic impulse of existence itself alive in us-the yearning for contact, pleasure, and aliveness. The Sexual however is not the sum total of the erotic. Rather, the sexual models the Erotic. The sexual teaches us how to live an Erotic life in all dimension of our existence.

It is these secret doctrines that were later taught by Mary Magdalene and that sparked excitement around bestselling novels such as The Da Vinci Code.

Deep understanding of the sexual becomes the portal to accessing aliveness in every dimension of our reality. This realization demands that you live sexually without shame and shows you how to re-eroticize all areas of your life.

A Return to Eros: On Sex, Love, and Eroticism in Every Dimension of Life, from Drs. Marc Gafni and Kristina Kincaid, reveals the radical secret tenets of relationship between the sexual, the erotic, and the holy. They reveal what Eros actually means and share the ten core qualities of the Erotic, which are modeled by the sexual. These include being on the inside, fullness of presence, yearning, allurement, fantasy, surrender, creativity, pleasure, and more.

A Return to Eros shows why these qualities of the erotic modeled by the sexual are actually the same core qualities of the sacred. The relationship between the sexual and the erotic becomes clear, teaching you how to live an erotically suffused existence charged with purpose, potency and power.

To be an Outrageous Lover--not just in sex but also in all facets of your life--you must listen deeply to the simple yet elegant whisperings of the sexual. This book will forever transform your understanding and experience of love, sex, and Eros.

Narrated by Producer, Director and Actress Gabrielle Anwar

Sex is not negative or positive. Sex is not just neutral, nor is it merely sacred because it creates babies. None of these old sexual stories work for us anymore. We need a new sexual narrative. This book gives the new sexual narrative, what the authors call "sex erotic”.
 

Since Marcuse and Norman O. Brown, nothing has been written on Eros that approaches the depth of Return to Eros. Gafni and Kincaid, offer a vision of CosmoErotic Humanism that is a crucial next step for the emergence of the New Human and the New Humanity. 
 

'A Return to Eros: The Radical Experience of Being Fully Alive - On Sex, Love, and Eroticism in Every Dimension of Life', from Drs. Marc Gafni and Kristina Kincaid, reveals the radical tenets of relationship between the sexual, the erotic, and the holy. 
 

In these pages you will find Eros disclosed, defined and animated as the life current of Kosmos itself awake and alive as you. 
 

You begin to feel and know Eros and perhaps for the first time come home to your fullest authentic self and your larger home in the world. Gafni and Kincaid share the twelve core qualities of the erotic, which are inherent to Kosmos and modeled by the sexual. In doing so they construct an on ramp to realizing Eros as the core ethical and creative quality of your own New Enlightenment. 

A Return to Eros shows why these qualities of the erotic modeled by the sexual are actually the same core qualities of the Sacred and the same core qualities of the Ethical. To be an 'Outrageous Lover' in all facets of your life, you must listen deeply to the simple yet elegant whisperings of Eros. 
 

This book will forever transform your understanding and experience of love, sex, and Eros.

Emergence

Barbara Marx Hubbard

What can we expect from the future? According to visionary and futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard, we will see a new type of human emerge in the world. She calls this the Universal Human, and it could be the key to our survival as a species.

The Universal Human is connected through the heart to the whole of life, evolving consciously and helping to co-create a new kind of spiritual path, something we've never experienced before, but which is perfect for our time.

Emergence lays out the blueprints for birthing this new kind of human, explaining all the steps in what Hubbard calls "an intimate and practical process for all who wish to make the transition to the next stage of evolution.

Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism - The Two Models and Why They Matter

Dr. Marc Gafni

Two major works have been written within the framework of Integral Wisdom about the nature of Self and God. While they share important features, namely the evolutionary context of the conversation and a vision of Self beyond Ego, their interior visions of the quality of the Self beyond Ego are profoundly different.

 

Both of these visions of Self, or key dimensions of the two versions, have been adopted, directly and indirectly by many spiritual teachers. In Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism, Marc Gafni articulates the two models, their shared features and their differences, and as we seek to articulate an Integral Wisdom, why these differences matter so desperately.

The Erotic and the Holy - Audio CD

Dr. Marc Gafni

Imagine walking into your place of worship -- your local church, synagogue, mosque, or meditation center -- to find that all of the usual adornments have been replaced with statues and pictures of sexually intertwined cherubs. Chances are, you'd be quickly taken aback. 


But, according to Dr. Marc Gafni, bestselling author of Your Unique Self and Soul Prints, these were the precise images found atop the ark of the ancient Temple of Jerusalem. "These 'angels of desire' were, for the mystics, the very key to the mystery of love at the heart of our lives," he explains. Now listeners can join him to explore the tantric secret of these cherubs, and experience Eros in all of life's activities, including the spiritual, with The Erotic and the Holy.

TEARS - Reclaiming Ritual Integral Religion & Rosh Hashanah

Dr. Marc Gafni

This is a book about tears. It is about the dance of tears in our lives. Tears are not of one texture. There are many forms of holy tears. And there are also, or so it appears from the perspective of one level of consciousness, unholy tears. This book is about learning to discern between these different forms of tears. To learn the language of tears is to discern between the different forms of sacred tears.

Ultimately, however, from a higher level of consciousness all tears are holy in their root. Part of what it means to wake up is to identify the nature of your tears, and to give your tears voice. To wake up is to know the language of tears. When you are awake, you hear and hearken to the melody and message of your tears.

Loving Your Way to Enlightenment 

Dr. Marc Gafni - collected by Chahat Corten

Love is so confusing. What does it mean? Is it an emotion? Who should we love? How and How Much? When and Where?

 

What is the relationship between romantic love, impersonal cosmic love, sister love, evolutionary love, and outrageous love? How do love, sex and eros relate to each other? Why is a right understanding and experience of love the core of education, medicine, sex, business, politics and just about everything else.

 

Read this book and let your love life be expanded and transformed forever. Fall in love all the way! May Marc Gafni’s Loving Your Way to Enlightenment blow your mind, heart and body open; may you experience the force of his teaching as profoundly as we have experienced it in the Circle at Venwoude.

 

These teachings read as if Marc Gafni is talking to you personally and transmits his wisdom and brilliant worldview right into your Being. mauk pieper, director of ciw europe and author of humanity’s second shock and your unique self It is very rare that one comes across a teacher or a book that is ‘changing the game’.

 

My friend, Dr. Marc Gafni is such a teacher. He is a rare combination of brilliance, depth and heart. michael murphy, founder of the esalen institute, ca. usa

Deep Dive Source Texts By Barbara Marx Hubbard and Dr. Marc Gafni
The Evolutionary Testament of Co-Creation

Barbara Marx Hubbard

Barbara Marx Hubbard’s extraordinary book offers an evolutionary, future-oriented perspective on the Gospels of Jesus Christ. Barbara reveals that many of the miracles Jesus performed are actually similar to those acts that we currently aspire to achieve today, but so often without consciousness of Christ love. This book builds on the great themes in the New Testament, such as Jesus’ statement: “You will do the works that I do, and greater works will you do in the fullness of time…” and St. Paul: “Behold I show you a mystery, we shall not all sleep, we shall all be changed…”

These statements are coming true. The Promise is being kept. We are all being changed. We do have the power of what we called gods. We can destroy the world and we also can restore the Earth, evolve ourselves and all of society. This is the last trump, and the trumpet is sounding for our generation.

The Evolutionary Testament of Co-Creation invites us to form Evolutionary Bible Study Groups to join together to consider and deepen the guidance for the meaning of our new Christ like powers to be used for a positive future for all Earth life.
