(Blurb for Dr. Marc Gafni's book Your Unique Self)

The crisis our world faces now gives us a deep sense of urgency to step up and give more of our gifts.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran of the spiritual path or you are just beginning to awaken to your highest possibility, you are wanting to play a larger game in your life. You want to know that before your life ends that “who you are” and “what you did” truly mattered and made a real difference. The 1st step would be to remove the hidden barriers that keep you from being & acting powerfully in your life.

Watch out for hidden sabotaging habits that may prevent you from playing bigger in your life…

sadWe often get stuck or feel like we don’t have enough time or energy to make a big enough difference. It’s frustrating to feel like we’ve ‘done the work’ and yet transformation doesn’t seem to be happening fast enough. Does this sound familiar?

Maybe you feel confused about how to take the next step or it feels too hard to keep going.

  Maybe it’s hard to commit to doing the practices it takes to transform…. there never seems to be enough time.

  Perhaps you’re overwhelmed and exhausted by the demands of modernity and by the impending sense of doom our planet faces.

For many of us, paying the bills, raising our kids, and staying on top of our health and diet takes all our energy, time, and resources. It can feel nearly impossible to take that next giant leap.

For example, you may . . .

  • Get overwhelmed by the demands of your everyday life.
  • Get annoyed with yourself because you feel like you're not making a big enough difference.
  • Be frustrated because you’re someone who wants to play BIG but you just don’t know how.
  • Feel burdened by a quiet sense of desperation that your life is passing you by.
  • Feel like your life is mundane and ordinary - you want your life to feel epic and extraordinary.
  • Find yourself experiencing a sense of loss or emptiness because you don’t know what you are really supposed to be doing with your life.
  • Feel stuck even though you’ve spent lots of time and money doing “the work”.
  • Frustrated because you don’t know how to match your gifts with the world needs.

Good News! There IS a Better Way!

7 Amazing Benefits You’ll Enjoy By Participating in Awakening Your Unique Self

A deeper sense of self-awareness and a connection to your unique purpose

You were born with a unique set of strengths and gifts that are perfect for a specific purpose or unique need in the world. When you awaken to your Unique Self, you realize that you are a unique incarnation of the love-intelligence and love-beauty that initiated and animates the whole cosmos. Because of that you have a unique personal obligation to commit Outrageous Acts of Love that are utterly needed by all that is and that are yours and ONLY yours to perform. Fulfilling this obligation is the greatest joy of your life and leaves no space for feeling lost, stuck or unfulfilled.

Cultivate the fearlessness to love in the face of pain

We live in a world of outrageous pain and the only response is Outrageous Love. Love at its core is not an emotion but a perception. Love as a perception is to choose again and again to be open-hearted no matter what challenges we might face. Despite all the pain that you have known — all the mistakes that may burden you with guilt or shame along with any sadness or regret that you may have — the more you practice loving the moment open, the less your wounds matter.

Deep Sense of Knowing

Who are you? Where do you come from? Where are you going? What is your purpose? What is your relationship with God? How can you play a bigger game, love more, and change the world? How can you fulfill your true potential? Enlightenment is sanity through knowing your true identity - without excluding or condemning your ego. It’s about loving your way to enlightenment, and experiencing love so directly that the contraction of the small self is released and you can begin to experience yourself as a larger person.

A profound mind-body connection that empowers you to create healthier habits

At the core of our society, many are out of balance. Some fall into patterns of always wanting to get more and give less, while others confuse taking for receiving. When you awaken to Your Unique Self you come into balance. You recognize that you are divine and that your life matters. You become the ultimate giver and receiver simultaneously; resulting in healthier choices around your relationships, your career, your health, and your finances.

Free-flowing inspiration and creativity that help you solve any challenge and shine in all that you do

Your Unique Self is the medium and essence which forms and chooses the Outrageous Acts of Love that are yours and only yours to commit. When you live from Your Unique Self you recognize that you are God’s verb. God is Creative. Consciousness is Creative. Creativity is the essential manifest quality of the Divine. Therefore, just as God is creative so you be creative. Awakening to this realization gives you access to a level of unparalleled creativity and power.

A deeper connection with the people around you

When you live your Unique Self, God or Reality is having a YOU experience. Reality is looking through your eyes and You wake up to your unique perspective that gives you unique insights that birth your unique set of gifts that are needed by all that is. Uniqueness then becomes your currency of connection. It doesn’t make you separate or better than someone else; rather, you are connected to the world, your relationships and your community through your own unique specialness.

Develop a fearless sense of self expression

Our world faces sobering challenges that can ONLY BE responded to by a genuine evolution of consciousness. The only way to transform reality and create a society in which every human being is honored, received and loved is to realize that it took 13.7 billion years of evolution to create the unique expression of Your Unique Self and that you are not merely a product of your mother and father. This creates freedom and opens you up to a wealth of possibility and fearless creative expression.


Each week you will receive a series of audio lessons, videos, exercises, and downloadable handouts. That main course is supplemented by the recordings of three Q & A and coaching sessions, three module-specific quizzes & one final exam, as well as a whole lot of optional material.

Unlike any other course available today, "Awakening Your Unique Self" is an evolutionary road map designed to give you a simple step-by-step process to awaken the full potential of YOU and align you with your destiny.

In just 10-weeks, you’ll tap into a limitless resource of possibility that builds the stamina, courage and creativity to consistently create a ripple effect of profound transformation on all levels of your life.

“With exceptional brilliance and an awakened heart, Dr. Marc Gafni speaks to all of us who are interested in the evolution of consciousness. His teachings on the Unique Self enlightenment are essential for the next stage in our evolution. They have emerged from his direct experience, and I highly recommend them.” — Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Author of Spiritual Liberation: Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential

What You’ll Learn


Who Am I? Introducing Your Unique Self

The first step is to become aware of who you are as a unique expression of the love-intelligence and beauty that lives in you, as you, and through you. From that place of awareness your purpose will present itself to you and invite you to your life.

In lesson one you'll learn:

  • Awakening to the direct realization that living your Unique Self is God or Reality having a You Experience
  • Why moving beyond your separate self has nothing to do with moving beyond your irreducible uniqueness
  • How your uniqueness is a revelation of the Universe’s personal intention for your life
  • Why the Evolution of Consciousness is the most important insight of this century and why it matters to you
  • Why the Evolution of Consciousness is really just another way of saying the Evolution of Love that is the Evolution of God
  • Why the Only Response to Outrageous Pain is Outrageous Love
  • How Awakening to Your Unique Self IS the ultimate Outrageous Act of Love
  • Why Enlightenment is Sanity


Where Do I Come From?
How Evolution Awakens to Itself in You

True Self is the embodied realization that you are not separate from the all. True Self is your ability to literally taste the truth that you are inseparable from All That Is. The deeper your level of True Self realization the more you are able to awaken YOUR Unique Self - the personal face of Your True Self.

In lesson two you'll learn:

  • How to access your True Self and transform your identity through Love
  • What the relationship is between Being and Becoming and why it is critical to any person who cares about Goodness, Truth and Beauty
  • Why meditation is not enough to awaken your full potential and purpose
  • How to actualize your Greatness
  • What does it mean for you to be personally implicated in Evolution
  • How Reality Knows Your Name and why that is essential to actualizing your Greatness
  • The path of the Five Big Bangs of Evolution that lead directly to You


What is My Story?
The Path to Unique Self Enlightenment

If you're going to align your life with purpose, you need to understand the difference between your Ego Story and your Unique Self Story. Once you understand the key distinctions between Unique Self and ego you begin to have a surprising revelation. You understand why you never can and never should evolve beyond ego - if you're going to actualize your full potential.

In lesson three you'll learn:

  • What separate self actually means
  • The distinction between the three levels of the personal which will empower the actualization of your Unique Self

  • Why the God you don't believe in doesn't exist
  • The distinction between Classical Enlightenment and Unique Self Enlightenment
  • Why the Unique Self is the evolution of Enlightenment – The New Enlightenment


Who Am I Not? False Core, False Self

Your False Self is a distortion of your healthy separate self. It tells you that you are no good and not good enough or all alone because you’re unlovable. Your False Self is based on a limiting interpretation of who you believe you are inside of contraction. When you are in false self consciousness, not only have you forgotten your True Self, but “you have forgotten that you have forgotten”.

In lesson four you'll learn:

  • How to identify the hidden obstacles that stop you from thriving in Your Unique Self
  • You have been generating your reality from inside a false core sentence that has been invisible to you for most of your life
  • How to deconstruct the dynamic that has you recreating the same negative situations in your life time and time again
  • How to step outside of your False Core Sentence and step into your Unique Self as Source
  • What it means to make your perception available to God


What is My True Identity? Ego vs. Essence

Unique Self is not a typology of the ego self. It is not merely your Myers-Briggs nor your enneagram type. It is the personal face of the divine essence living in you, as you and through you. To touch it, you must move beyond your separate self and touch the larger context of reality in which you live. You must awaken and taste Essence.

In lesson five you'll learn:

  • Six key paths which lead to your True Self Realization
  • How to wake up and realize that your true nature is not Separate Self, but True Self
  • How to be liberated from unnecessary suffering
  • To stay motivated, inspired and take action in alignment with your higher good, higher truth, and your higher beauty


What is My Unique Gift? True Self & Unique Self

“Unique Self and ego represent two very different levels of consciousness. At the level of ego, you must let go of the illusion of specialness. At the level of Unique Self, you must embrace the infinite gorgeousness of your specialness, and the obligation that it creates for you to give your deepest Unique Gift in the world.” - Marc Gafni ​

In lesson six you'll learn:

  • Why Your Unique Self is the key to your joy and personal fulfillment

  • How the path of Outrageous Love will lead you to your greater good

Unique Self & Shadow: Dancing Towards the Light

One of the most confusing and misunderstood topics in the world is shadow. The reason why most people never actualize into the greatest version of themselves is because they misunderstand what shadow really means. This keeps them from accessing their full power and potential.

In lesson eight you'll learn:

  • A spiritual practice to give you clarity in identifying your own shadow and shadow qualities
  • How to identify where the power of darkness and shadow comes from
  • That shadow is actually not your pettiness, jealousy, betrayal, rage…or violence

Unique Wound, Unique Destiny: Evolutionary Relationships

From a Unique Self perspective, our relationships provide the opportunity to serve a higher purpose and vision for the greater good. They are rooted in the matrix of a deep shared language, values and vision.

I salute and support his expression and recognition of the uniqueness of each in all.” — Gangaji, Author of Hidden Treasure: Uncovering the Truth in Your Life

“Dr. Marc Gafni has played a foundational role in emergence and development of Integral Spirituality. Gafni is involved in an ongoing process of ecstatic teaching and scholarship. That his work is birthing new forms of evolutionary spirituality is evidenced in his emergent articulations of World Spirituality and Unique Self. Unique Self, a term coined and a concept and realization developed by Marc over the last fifteen years, represents a truly world-centric, planet-centric and kosmocentric evolutionary mysticism. It changes the way we think about enlightenment by integrating the enlightenment traditions of the premodern East and modern West in a higher integral embrace.” — Sean Esbjörn-Hargens, Founder of The Integral Institute
