Dr. Gafni first used the term “ Soul Prints’ in 1986, in a talk delivered to five hundred senior citizens in Delray Beach, Florida. In this talk, he shared the realization of the Interior science that, in this formulation “Not only do we have a fingerprint, but we also have a soul print.” He then went on to articulate a soul print philosophy of personal realization and intimate communion based on the realization of one’s personal and relational soul print. The popular book Soul Prints: Your Path to Fulfillment (Simon and Schuster) was published in 2001, and became an international bestseller. This was Dr. Gafni’s first book written in English. In this book he refers to Soul Print as “an expression of enlightened essence”. Soul Prints was released in Hebrew by Israel’s leading publisher Yediot Achronot in 2006, with a new appendix containing forty pages of primary sources in Aramaic and Hebrew, drawn from the interior science of the Hebrew wisdom lineage. In this context, Gafni referred to the internal divine voice that lives in and as the interior face of consciousness. *The theme Live Your Story – the imperative of “living our story” by identifying our Unique Selves is central to the book*. However, Gafni then turns the idea of individuality on its head by articulating the notion that uniqueness itself is the currency of connection – that only through living one’s soul print can one establish authentic relationship and communion. The Soul Prints book later became the subject of a PBS special presentation. Read more about the evolution from Soul Prints to Unique Self here.
Soul Prints DVD (Public Broadcasting Special, 2001)
In a 73-minute lecture which was a Public Broadcasting Special, Marc Gafni educates an enthusiastic studio audience about the principles and practices of his “soul prints” philosophy, which would later become the basis for the Unique Self teaching. Culled from his lineage in Kabbalah as well as other religious and philosophical traditions, the essence of the teaching is instruction in how we can live our life the way it was destined to be lived. In this vision, individual and collective paths to inner peace ultimately find harmony.

In an increasingly disconnected world, it is still possible to make the connections that matter most: those that banish loneliness; those that bring you satisfaction, passion, and joy; those that begin with your Unique Self — or, what he calls in this book, your “Soul Print.”
