He is the director of Center for World Spirituality, an activist think tank he co-founded in 2010 with Mariana Caplan, which is dedicated to evolving and articulating a shared global framework of meaning and responsibility. Garni is CEO and one of the co-founders of the Center for Integral Wisdom, Evolving a Global Ethic for a Global Civilization.
At the core of Gafni’s teaching and writing is what he calls the Enlightenment of Fullness, the linchpin of which is Unique Self Teachings, a breakthrough technology with the “potential to change the source code of the human experience”. The essence of Unique Self is that every human being has a story which possesses infinite value, dignity, and worth. That story needs to be lived, told and received. The unique story of every human is the source of irreducible value. No person can ever merely be a means to someone else’s end. This unique quality of every human story is not an accident but is the very nature of essence. Awakening to one’s Unique Self is an essential part of the educational, psychological, economic, emotional, physical and spiritual maturation.
