Marc Gafni and Michael Murphy in Dialogue

Unique Self is one of the key topics in this dialogue from the Spirit’s Next Move teleseries presented by the Center for World Spirituality.

In this rare dialogue with one of the great pioneers of the human potential movement, an important precursor to the emergence of World Spirituality, trailblazing spiritual teacher and author Marc Gafni will mine Michael Murphy’s great well of resources in order to articulate the great possibilities of Spirit’s Next Move as well as the lessons hard won over four decades in the human potential movement. Together they chart the critical tenets and practices that consttute World Spirituality.

Michael Murphy is the co-founder and chairman of Esalen Institute and the author of both fiction and non-fiction books that explore evidence for extraordinary human capacities. During his forty-year involvement in the human potential movement, he and his work have been profiled in The New Yorker and featured in many magazines and journals worldwide. After graduating from Stanford University, he did graduate work there in philosophy, practiced meditation at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in South India in 1956 and 1957, and co-founded Esalen in 1962. Murphy is author of The Future of the Body, The Life We Are Given (with George Leonard), In the Zone: Transcendent Experience in Sports (with Rhea White), The Physical and Psychological Effects of Meditation (with Steven Donovan), and other books.
