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; the two-volume Radical Kabbalah; Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism: Two Models and Why They Matter; and Tears: Reclaiming Ritual, Integral Religion, and Rosh Hashanah. New books are now in preparation being written in collaboration with leading thinkers and activists in key areas of human culture including, evolutionary theory, world spirituality, psychology, entrepreneurship, Eros, sexuality, and public culture.
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 a new ‘dharma,’ or meta-theory of Integral meaning that is helping to re-shape key pivoting points in consciousness and culture.
He is the co-founder of The Center for Integral Wisdom. The Center, where Barbara Marx Hubbard serves as co-chair, is a leading activist think tank dedicated to articulating a practical politics of love, and to catalyzing an emergent personal and global vision of ethics, Eros and meaning. He is the evolutionary scholar in Residence at the Foundation for Conscious Evolution and a co-founder of the Integral Evolutionary Tantra Institute and the Outrageous Love Project.
A rabbinic lineage holder in Bible, Talmud, and Kabbalah, Gafni self-describes as a “dual citizen” of both Integral World Spirituality and classical Hebrew practice. He has been an editor of the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice on issues of Integral spirituality and a faculty member of J.F.K. University.
