Love is all around, and this newsletter is dedicated to all those wondrous ways that love shows up in the world and in our work at the Center for World Spirituality.
The Mini Course is a four week course with fantastic supplemental materials and has been described by many people who participated as life changing. It offers a core shift in your experience of yourself and the way you are able to show up in the world. You can still take this course right now. It is absolutely free – our gift to you and the awakening of Your Unique Self.
Ten-Week Deluxe Unique Self Course in Full Swing:
The ten week Unique Self course has also exceeded even our wildest dreams. Each week of this ten week course people have gathered from all over the world to directly participate together in the Awakening of Unique Self. For those of you who are in the teaching, you know that Unique Self is not about being an isolated individual. Rather, Unique Self is the great connector. Unique Self creates a powerful evolutionary we-space in which every irreducible Unique Self shows up in full splendor and commitment. Each week the course deepens, and course participants and all involved in the course are consistently reporting genuine experiences of transformative insight, awakening and community. This past week’s theme has been love: Love as a Unique Self perception, Love as the very force that animates the whole cosmos, Love as the strange attractor driving evolution, and Love as the decision to open up in every moment, even in the midst of pain and fear. As Dr. Marc said in a beautiful meditation during the call:
Even though you have habits of closure, right now, in this moment, you can always practice opening to feel; open to feel what you are feeling now, whatever it is, and when you open to it, your heart opens and melts away that which is in the way.
You can still join the course, listen to the previous sessions, participate in the online portal and this awesome community of likeminded people, get feedback from Dr. Marc, and ask your questions in the next Q&A session. To jump in wholeheartedly, sign up here.
Love, particularly outrageous love in response to outrageous pain is the animating ethos and eros of the Center for World Spirituality. Love is not just a word. It is love in action.
Marc Gafni during a recent retreat at Shalom Mountain:
The one thing we all know is true
Every one of us in the room
Is that we live in a world of outrageous pain,
The world’s an outrageously painful place
And the only response to outrageous pain
Is outrageous loving
CWS is an Activist Think-Tank dedicated to formulating and articulating a global ethics for a global civilization. We are committed to evolving the source code of human existence.
Our vehicle is our Activist Think-Tank, which is at this very moment working on a series of landmark projects in the areas of spirituality, conscious capitalism, Unique Self, Eros, gender, and relationships. We believe that these landmark projects, when taken together, will unfold–for the first time in the modern era–a genuine shared narrative of spirit, a genuine framework for a world spirituality or world philosophy.
We live in inescapable frameworks. Therefore, the articulation of a shared global framework of meaning and responsibility, which we all might relate to globally is an urgent need of our time.
Such a framework honors the singularity of every great wisdom tradition, even as it identifies the underlying depth structures and unique contributions of each. When take together, these begin to articulate an authentic “users guide to the universe.”
In deep love and connectedness,
The CWS team
