Reimagining Humanity’s Identity: Responding to the Second Shock of Existence - Paper by Academic Director of CIW Zachary Stein & President Marc Gafni Published at World Future Review.

Foreshadowing arguments from the forthcoming book, Towards a New Politics of Outrageous Love, this paper suggests that humanity is in the throws of a species wide identity crisis, precipitated by a broadening awareness of our impending self-inflicted extinction. This growing awareness that humanity is responsible for its own fate and the fate of the planet is referred to as the second shock of existence. The second shock has spawned a great deal of discussion about the need for revolutions in technological, economic, and ecological infrastructures, yet this focus on exteriors addresses only half the picture. Comparable revolutions of our interiors must also take place—radical transformations in the very structure of our consciousness and species-wide self-understanding. This is a call for attending to the interior dimensions of the current global crises, recommending in the strongest possible terms that tremendous energy and resources be rechanneled into planning for the vast educational reconfigurations facing humanity in the coming decades.

Introduction

Dr. Marc Gafni is a public intellectual and spiritual artist. He holds his doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University, rabbinic certification from the chief rabbinate in Israel, as well private rabbinic ordination. 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 Integral Wisdom, a think tank he co-founded in 2010 with Mariana Caplan which is creating a body of work to evolve the source code of human existence.

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 is a guest editor of the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice on issues of Integral spirituality, has been a faculty member of J.F.K. University, and is the author of eight books including the national bestseller Soul Prints, and The Mystery of Love, an exploration of the relationship between the erotic and the sacred.

An iconoclastic artist and provocative visionary, Dr. Gafni has led spiritual movements and learning communities as well as created and hosted for several seasons a highly popular national Israeli television program on culture, meaning, and spirit. He is the father of four children (the youngest being three years old), is in committed relationship, and lives in Northern California.

He has taken part in several institutions, movements and groups within the past 5 years. Dr. Gafni co-founded the Center for Integral Wisdom in 2010 alongside some of the greatest minds in the industry - Ken Wilbur, Mariana Caplan, and Sally Kempton. The impact that was had is the correlation of thought between these wonderful minds. This brought about the creation of the Unique Self Theory, in which Dr. Gafni published 3 books. The activist think-tank is committed to evolving and advancing the human existence. 

The Center of Integral Wisdom also brought about the creation of Wisdom School, a esoteric school dedicated to leading human evolution in the right direction. Deep consideration, inquiry, and practice are applied to advance the cause. 

Dr. Gafni also co-founded Success 3.0, which is another platform for the correlation of fantastic minds and thinking.
