Marc Gafni’s Keynote Presentation
at J.F.K. University
In this keynote addressed to graduate students in Integral Studies at John F. Kennedy University, Dr. Marc Gafni establishes a matrix for Unique Self by reviewing the Integral approach to spirituality viewing it’s contribution as that of “pointing out instructions” for God in first, second, and third person.
After an opening in which he points out the difference between the presence and absence and the presence of fullness, Dr Marc Gafni highlights the fact that Integral’s “post-metaphysical” approach doesn’t mean that it’s “post-meaning.” He explains that there are definitely truth claims, but they are not exhausted by the mythical approach to metaphysics. God, he explains, is essential to the full realized experience of all that is.
