One Mountain, Many Paths is all of us, playing together in a Unique Self Symphony towards a Planetary Awakening in Evolutionary Love, and held by a team of leaders who have come together and deeply immerse themselves in the First Principles and First Values of Outrageous Love and Unique Self. We are grateful to our founders Dr. Marc Gafni and Barbara Marx Hubbard for the formulations of the First Principles and First Values and its continued unfolding every day. Each of us is committed to playing the full wonder of our Unique Self Instrument and participating with full mind, heart, and passion in the evolution of love.
Dr. Marc Gafni is a visionary thinker, social activist, passionate philosopher, and author of ten books, including the award-winning Your Unique Self: The Radical Path to Personal Enlightenment. He holds his doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University, as well as rabbinic ordination. He teaches on the cutting edge of philosophy in the West, helping to evolve - what he calls - new First Principles and First Values,' or meta-theory of Integral meaning that is helping to re-shape key pivoting points in consciousness and culture.
Marc is the Co-Founder and President of The Center for Integral Wisdom and the Director and evolutionary scholar in residence at the Foundation for Conscious Evolution.
Barbara Marx Hubbard
In Memory, Spirit and Video Participation!
Barbara Marx Hubbard was a visionary and social innovator. She was an evolutionary thinker who believed that global change happens when we work collectively and selflessly for the greater good. She realized that the lessons of evolution teach us that problems are evolutionary drivers, and crises precede transformation, giving a new way of seeing and responding to our global situation. As a prolific author and educator, Barbara wrote seven books on social and planetary evolution. She was the founder of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution and served as the co-chair for The Center for Integral Wisdom. We will miss her, and we will continue our weekly global broadcasts in memory of her and all that she did as a powerful leader and passionate proponent for a planetary awakening in love through a Unique Self Symphony.

David Cicerchi was raised spiritually by the Jesuits and feels a deep affinity for their mantra to "see God in all things". For years, he has felt the impulse to seek God by globally volunteering, building non-profit volunteer programs, facilitating organizational change initiatives, and providing transformational coaching to the corporate world.
The spirituality of the Jesuits left much out. His yearning for a more integrated spirituality led David to meet Dr. Marc Gafni in 2011 during the conference, Integral Spiritual Experience, where Marc provided a compelling evolutionary framework and heart transmission that invited David’s radical expression of love!
David is contributing to One Mountain, Many Paths in various projects, including the compilation of Evolutionary Love Codes.

Claire Molinard is an empowered lineage holder and teacher of both the theory, practice, and transmission of the Unique Self Dharma. Her first dive into evolutionary spirituality was in her early twenties when she started to study Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga. Since then, Claire has explored and practiced many paths.
In 2007, during a silent meditation retreat, her small-self dissolved into the Big Love that lives at the core of all things, and this peak experience changed her perception of reality forever.
In 2008, she discovered Ken Wilber’s Integral theory, which gave her seeking mind a deep and wide enough map in which to “put all the pieces together”.
But it’s only when she met Dr. Marc Gafni in 2013, she knew she found her teacher. Dr. Gafni’s meta-vision of an evolutionary Spirituality grounded in the depth of his spiritual lineage gives her a deep sense of coming home. Claire studies with Dr. Marc, along with collaborating with him on a number of outrageous projects, by holding the stewardship of all the books and projects related to Unique Self theory and by exploring how to best complete the missing pieces of this dharma, and how to deploy the dharma effectively in the evolution of culture and consciousness.
Together, with Chahat Corten, Claire Molinard holds the extraordinary Mystery School and Outrageous Love Festival space in Europe every year.
Chahat Corten (1955) was one of the founding members of an internationally acclaimed Dutch community and retreat center dedicated to heart-based living, personal growth, and spirituality. From its beginnings in 1988, she stood with her late-life partner Ted Wilson in holding together and developing this dynamic, experimental, on-the-edge organization.
Thoroughly cooked in the complexities of intentional communal living, Chahat blends penetrating wisdom in the realms of relating, intimacy and sacred sexuality with gentle compassion, holy laughter, and ecstatic creativity.
In her wondrous life journey, she has had the privilege to meet and study with numerous great spiritual teachers from all over the world. All these doorways into the miracle of our existence have shaped her unique realization of emptiness and fullness, wisdom and love, culminating in her deep, wide-open heart.
Chahat supports individuals and couples who seek her out for her wise and deeply human perspective on all areas of life. One of Chahat’s greatest skills is supporting people to find ways to implement the spiritual practice in their daily lives – the only place where our practice really gets challenged and can be seen for what it is!
"In meeting Marc Gafni in 2010, a total new layer of Love opened up within me. His transmission allowed me to access a realization of Truth that had been unfolding and deepening in me for years, in a new, most tender and intimate way. As one of Marc's teachers would say: 'Embodied in my toenails.' Working with Marc and our awesome team in the Festival of Love is my great joy and delight."
