Unique Self Coaching


Unique Self is the portal for arousing this consciousness, the Love Intelligence, which can hold and address the pain of the world. When we awaken to our Unique Self, we are able to release sole identification with our Separate Self consciousness. Having embraced the whole of existence that is often referred to as True Self or Oneness, we become aware that out of that expanded consciousness emerges a need to individuate and we come to recognize our unique perspective. This is our emerging Unique Self starting to reveal its unique contours and gifts. Quoting Marc Gafni again, "Unique Self is the personal face of essence, our ultimate nature - it is the unique God-spark or love intelligence that lives in you, as you, and through you. As we continue to live more consciously from our Unique Self consciousness, we start to feel more at home in our own life, with a deep sense that our story is irreducibly important. We realize that all along we have tried our best to carry out a unique purpose and obligation and this realization gives rise to greater self-compassion and appreciation for all we are, as we are. This is an important shift in the course of the emergence of Unique Self, because in becoming more intimate with our own life we also start developing a new relationship of intimacy and mutuality with the universe. This is when our unique leadership comes online, arising naturally as a creative spark. Grounded in the awareness that we are one with the whole, our unique obligation that is ours to fulfill naturally arises. From this state of clarity, we are no longer stuck in overwhelm in the face of the impossible task of "having to fix an ailing world" nor do we wonder any more what our life purpose might be. Instead, our purpose becomes us . . . it arises naturally from our own unique story along with the sense of responsibility to fulfill it as best we can. We believe that if and when more people open and surrender to this way of being, individually as their Unique Self and collectively as an evolutionary WE Space of Unique Selves, this will create a new way of relating and functioning as a species. Ultimately, this new way of being can and will change the world. Recent research on human development shows that as adults grow into higher levels of awareness, their capacity for perspective taking increases which in turn impacts what they do, how they do it, who they are and are becoming. It appears that as consciousness evolves into these higher levels, the capacity to access and express spiritual qualities starts to emerge from one's own unique expression. Leaders who access these states of consciousness - whether from a structural stage from which they live, or as states of consciousness that they cultivate, seem to all report an expansion of the capacity to tap into what is often called the "ground of being", or the "causal field", "point zero" or also, what Otto Scharmer refers to as "the bottom of the U." No matter what we call this "place," the qualities that are evoked by those who access it have to do with being able to stop one's habitual train of thought while becoming present to a sense of "what wants to happen for the highest good of all". In the Unique Self language, it is described as a shift from "my will to God's will" as we start hearing and listening to the whispers of our Unique Self. Empowered by Marc Gafni's Unique Self spiritual teachings, as well as drawing from the work of Susanne Cook-Greuter and Terri O'Fallon's leadership developmental research, Ken Wilber's Integral Framework, Integral Coachingâ„¢ and Otto Scharmer's Theory U, Answering The Call is a nine months intensive program. It combines on-site retreats and intercession training with extensive individualized coaching utilizing our Unique Self Coaching methodology to develop leaders' unique leadership through facilitating the emergence of their Unique Self. Through a series of enacted prototypes and practices designed to create more capacity to access a deeper source of wisdom, participants of this program will cultivate a new awareness of conscious being and becoming that can allow the "future that wants to emerge" to come to awareness and action in service of the love intelligence that lives in us, as us and through us. The Unique Self Coaching Collective will be offering an Answering The Call beta group in the fall of 2015.
