"It is very rare that one comes across a teacher or a book that is'changing the game.' My friend, Dr. Marc Gafni, is such a teacher. He is a rare combination of brilliance, depth, and heart. Marc's teaching onthe Unique Self in an evolutionary context is 'changing the game.'"
- Michael Murphy, Founder, Esalen Insitute, author of Golf in the Kingdom
"Every great thinker and teacher should be continually evolving, and this book marks the pinnacle of Gafni's work to date. It also leaves the territory ahead wide open, and an invitation to participate in its evolution through the uniqueness that each reader brings to it. I invite all readers to delve into the wisdom of the waters of Your Unique Self, and to emerge both cleansed of self-imposed limitations, and ready to open themselves to the as yet unlived possibilities of his or her life."
- Mariana Caplan, PhD, MFT, author of the award-winning Eyes Wide Open: Cultivating Discernment on the Spiritual Path
"Gafni's books are unrivaled in their provision of a profoundly new language of liberation. These are teachings for our time, which is a time to practice spirituality in the world, fearlessly, with eyes open, and to participate in a planet needing to be transformed by the power justice and love. So I will do something out of character and say: read these books. You will be compelled by the rigor and depth of the scholarship, while at the same time swooning from the depth of the ideas. Works like this come along once in a generation."
- Dr. Zachary Stein
