Evolutionary Sensemaking

Weekly Live Broadcast with Dr. Marc Gafni

Join Dr. Marc Gafni and the entire community of One Mountain every Sunday at 10 am PT in One Mountain, Many Paths weekly broadcast.

Join this exciting series of live podcasts:
Live Your Story 

There's a meta-crisis. It could all break down in quite serious ways. But breakdown is also a time of breakthrough. And it's only breakthrough that responds to breakdown.

Emergency is a time of emergence, but only the new emergence responds to the emergency. That is what we mean when we say, “crisis is an evolutionary driver.” Or "our crisis is a birth" as my - Marc - beloved evolutionary whole mate Barbara Marx Hubbard loved to say. 

At the core of our response to the meta-crisis is One Mountain, Many Paths. The essence of what we're doing in this revolution is telling a New Story, but particularly telling a New Story of value.

In response to crisis now for the last 20 years (beginning with a book called Soul Prints, with a section called "Live Your Story", which I was privileged to write in 2000), I've been working with this notion of story. Understanding story as a primary structure of Reality— and that's a very dramatic thing to say!

Story is not merely a human creation. Story is the structure of Reality itself. 


I've tried to say that in many different ways over the last 25 years. And I've talked about your sacred autobiography as your unique story, as part of the story of Reality.


And what all that means is wildly important… because in the end your life is a story that you're thinking about all the time! You're thinking about the plot-lines and the players and the actors. 

Of course, there are meditative movements that tell you to "move beyond your story." So what are they saying? What is this about What's our relationship to story? 

Because our relationship to story is the essence of what Enlightenment is.

— It's the essence of realization.
— It's also the essence of joy.
— It's the essence of ethics.
— It's the essence of goodness.
— It's the essence of truth and beauty.

How do you not become the object of a story that sweeps you along, but actually the humble but audacious master of your story?

Even as you realize that you don't control all the plot-lines, and there is something bigger happening.

It's the single most important topic that we can talk about. And it's been really at the center of everything we're doing. We call this New Story of value: CosmoErotic Humanism.

Thank you for participating in this great r/evolutionary undertaking: this new Renaissance.

Let's write a New Story about story!
Let's tell a New Story of value.
Let's respond to the meta crisis.

Only a New Story changes Reality. 

But here's the thing: only a new story, which is emergent from a new story about story. 

Let's get together and let's make this revolution!

Let's evolve story.
Let's evolve our stories.
Let's claim our stories.
Let's own our stories. 
Let's live our stories.

Love mad. I love you madly, madly, madly! 

Thank you. 

I can't wait to be with you this Sunday.

— Dr. Marc Gafni

SUNDAY 10:00AM PT Weekly


One Mountain is a weekly transmission of timeless and evolutionary wisdom, aggregated through the ages, distilled for today’s great, and terrible realities.


We must drink deeply from the most relevant sacred insights about our human and spiritual nature in order to wake up and grow up into our own maturation and greatness as individuals.  From here we can show up collectively to embody the new era of humanity and unlock our most thriving future. 

Dr. Marc Gafni and the late Barbara Marx Hubbard have devoted their lives to articulating the most precise, impactful integrations of sacred teachings throughout history so we can each show up to One Mountain and leave enthralled by our oneness, purpose and potential! 


While there are many paths up ‘the Mountain’, 'One Mountain, Many Pathsis devoted to revealing the mountain itself and this leads to profound, transformational insights that will leave you more empowered to step into your personal purpose as a creator.

That's why we always say in our services:

We are a church, a synagogue, a mosque, a temple, a zendo...we’re all of it. No one is excluded, everyone is included… and we come together to attune to the evolutionary impulse awakening within us… WELCOME HOME!!

About Dr. Marc Gafni

Gafni is a visionary thinker, social activist and passionate philosopher. He is known for his "source code teachings”, including Unique Self theory and the Five Selves, the Amorous Cosmos, A Politics of Evolutionary Love, A Return to Eros and Digital Intimacy.

He is author of twenty five books, of which the first ten have been published, 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 Orthodox rabbinic ordination.

Gafni is playing a pivotal role in evolving a new ‘dharma,’ or meta-theory of meaning overflowing with heart - a new set of distinctions, that is helping to re-shape key pivoting points in global consciousness and culture.

He teaches on the cutting edge of philosophy and spirit in the West, with the aim of participating in the articulation of what Dr. Gafni together with Dr. Zak Stein and colleagues are calling CosmoErotic Humanism.


At the core of CosmoErotic Humanism is what Dr. Gafni and Dr. Stein are calling  ‘First Principles and First Values’, Anthro-Ontology, and a “Universal Grammar of Value”.

This is the ground of a new shared universe story and a new narrative of identity for the new human and the new humanity. This is what they are calling the emergence from Homo sapiens to Homo Amor.

This shared story rooted in First Principles and First Values can then serve as the matrix for a global ethos for a global civilization. 


This work highly depends on the support of our community! 


If this labor of love has made your own life more Good, True and Beautiful, and you desire for Outrageous Love to reach more and more people, please consider aiding its sustenance with a one-time or loyal donation. Your support makes all the difference.

As you bless, so are you blessed. As you gift, so are you gifted.

Thank you!
