Unique Self: “To be awake is to be a lover: alive, aflame and open as love. Therefore, at its heart, to be a lover means to be willing to participate in the transformation of consciousness.”
Sex is play. Sex is surrender. Sex is profound and dangerous and exhilarating discovery – of our truest selves and the selves of our lovers.
After all, the ancient Hebrew mystics didn’t say, “And Adam banged Eve.” They wrote, he “knew” her.
How can your sexual self be the crucible of knowing yourself anew? Of knowing your lover with both profundity and lightness, with both fierceness and the tenderness of a newborn’s touch?
Sex can be entertainment, distraction, obsession — or it can be revelation of our truest selves, our most infinite consciousness. Through our bodies touching, we can touch the divine.
And we can feel – when we drop our anxieties, our bills, our status, our egos – what we can be as human in the act of “becoming.”
Few speak on this subject with Adam Gilad’s remarkable insight and infectious enthusiasm. The 50,000 followers of Adam’s dating and relationships newsletter already appreciate his unique mix of global wisdom traditions, spiritual cheekiness, advanced education and expansive practices. His legendary audio trainings and special programs cover topics like: learning the “language” of the other gender; cultivating a dance of the sexes rather than a battle; playing the spectrum of sexual polarity; and always, always, always, opening to fearlessness in self-awareness, self-evolution, compassion, forgiveness and really good wine.
Now you can join Adam and his guests for a 6-session live, interactive video course — part of the Evolver Intensives series for the emerging consciousness culture — that will stoke your imagination and answer your questions. Each session will be a dialog between Adam and one or two featured guests. And you will be part of the discussion, able to ask your questions on camera, just like a Skype call.
Continuing our theme of connecting your intimate life to the evolution of the species, in the third Evolver session he enters into dialogue with Marc Gafni, Director of Center for World Spirituality. Steeped in kabbalistic and other world wisdom traditions, Marc brings a unique blend of perspectives to love, Eros and the divine. Marc will lead you into a profound appreciation for what he calls your “unique self” – where ancient understandings of being one-with-all meets post-modern insight into the dignity of personal, individual perspective.
How can you raise pleasure into “the Eros of divine pleasure” – literally “God’s” pleasure in self-evolving through you and your body? In this session, you will access some mind-blowing ideas, synthesized and delivered by one of the most eloquent and heart-opened teachers of our time.
Dr. Marc Gafni holds his doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University and rabbinic certification from the chief rabbinate in Israel. He is also ordained and holds a doctorate in religious science. He is the initiating thought leader, together with Ken Wilber, of World Spirituality, based on integral principles, as well as the leading theorist and teacher of Unique Self Enlightenment. He is the director of Center for World Spirituality. 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. His latest book, Your Unique Self: The Radical Path to Personal Enlightenment, was named #1 in Spirituality by USABookNews in 2012.
