26 Distinctions Between Ego and Unique Self
Are you frustrated because your ego seems to always dominate your SPIRIT?
Do you want to cultivate higher and higher levels of FREEDOM in your life?
Do you want to finally be able to give your unique gifts to the world with POWER?

Two major works have been written within the framework of Integral Wisdom about the nature of Self and God. 

While they share important features, namely the evolutionary context of the conversation and a vision of Self beyond Ego, their interior visions of the quality of the Self beyond Ego are profoundly different.

Dive into Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism, where the award-winning author Marc Gafni articulates the two models of Self, their shared features, their differences and why -- as we seek to articulate an Integral Wisdom -- these differences matter so desperately.
Words Of Praise For
Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism

Barbara Marx Hubbard

President, The Foundation for Conscious Evolution

"Reading Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism has been a fabulous opening for me in understanding how my own Unique Self can make intimate contact with the Unique Self of my students, which further elicits the Unique Self of the teacher as well as the student.

I can now feel how to do it in my teaching, in the personal mentoring, and in my whole life with everyone everywhere. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this great liberation 
that overcomes the illusion of separation and reserve."

Paul R. Smith

Author, Integral Christianity:
The Spirit's Call to Evolve


"When I look at the ten thousand books on spirituality, mysticism, and evolutionary religion in my library, I can tell, at a glance, without looking at titles, which ones were most helpful to me. They are the ones with Post-It notes sticking out from the top, marking pages that I found quite valuable. 

Self in Integral Evolutionary Mysticism is one of those few dozens with numerous colorful sticky notes flaming out from its top edge. Gafni’s previous book, Your Unique Self, was a breakthrough opening in understanding the Self in relation to union with God. 

This book continues by focusing on an opposing popular postmodern view of self and pointing out the crucial differences. With laser-like insight Gafni lets his view remain the only one I can joyfully endorse as an integrally-informed Christian mystic and scholar. This book shines with radiant luminosity and spiritual depth."

Who is Marc Gafni?


Marc Gafni received his doctorate from Oxford University. Together with philosopher Ken Wilber, he co-founded The Center for Integral Wisdom, 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. A rabbinic lineage holder in Bible, Talmud, and Kabbalah, Gafni is a "dual citizen" of both Integral World Spirituality and classical Hebrew practice. 


He is an 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 ten books, including the national bestseller Soul Prints, and The Mystery of Love. Gafni is the founder of Unique Self theory, and his acclaimed writings and standing-room-only lectures are known for their unique mix of profound teaching and transmission, openhearted compassion and love, intellectual rigor. 

What This Book Is NOT

This book is not a woo-woo, New Age text.
This book is not a bunch of theoretical "information".

What This Book IS

1. A tool to empower you to distinguish between your ego (who might be running the show) and your Unique Self.
2. A lesson on being "an Evolutionary YES"
3. A teaching on love as a powerful verb... and the key difference between Evolutionary Love and "Absolute Love".
4. A tool for awakening and expressing your own, unique, profound consciousness as part of the larger, evolutionary context 

How to Read This Book

You could keep your distance and read from a safe place. Or you could say:

"I am ready to undergo a momentous leap in my own personal evolution. I am willing to engage in the work of self-creation. I am ready for a transformation of identity. 
I am ready to leave my small self behind. I am ready to recognize my true self, incarnate my Unique Self, and live as the evolutionary force of love."
  • TEDx meets Your Unique Self:
    The Future of Enlightenment
This talk is an invitation for you to understand, realize and practice Unique Self in the story of your life.

What is your Unique Self? Unique Self is the individualized expression of the love-intelligence that is the very Eros of evolution that lives as you.

Watch, and experience the shift that can bring many gifts to your life and make you a gift to the life of All-That-Is.

Sally Kempton

Author, Meditation for the Love of It

"Compelling, original and powerfully helpful to anyone seeking to understand the relationship between the different aspects of self, enlightenment and God. It has, in many ways, changed the Integral conversation on what it means to be an enlightened self.  

This brilliant new book goes the next step in exploring the implications of Unique Self. I highly recommend it to any serious student of enlightenment and transformation."
