MARC GAFNI EXPOSE – INTRODUCTION

EXPOSE on MARC GAFNI – PART 1 - INTRODUCTION

AKA (Personal): Marc Winiarz, Mordechai Gafni
AKA (Business): The Center For World Spirituality, The Center For Integral Wisdom Location: Monterey Bay and San Francisco, CA
Websites: www.Marcgafni.com, www.centerforintegralwisdom.org EIN: 46-1051882

Exactly who Marc Gafni is varies depending on who is answering the question. To his supporters he’s a spiritual visionary; to his critics and alleged victims, he’s a sexual predator. For those unfamiliar with him, he is a self-proclaimed spiritual leader and teacher of concepts such as “Outrageous Love” for humanity and the world and “Conscious Evolution”. Unfortunately however, there is a great hypocrisy between what he teaches vs. what his actions are in the real world.
Recently our organization received an influx of complaints about him from victims, which prompted us at FACT to get involved. In an effort to prevent any more people falling victim to his manipulations, exploitations and abuse, we have put together this five-part expose.

According to religion journalist Mark Oppenheimer, the victim allegations include “assault, statutory rape, emotional abuse, and exploitation of the counselor-student power dynamic.” There are also sexual abuse allegations from female victims as young as 13 and 16 years of age.

Many new age spiritual leaders, such as Deepak Chopra, have renounced their support, as well as over 100 rabbis including Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, who ordained Gafni, but later rescinded the ordination.
Despite the dozens of allegations against Gafni, he still retains some major supporters. One of his strongest proponents is John Mackey, the founder and co-CEO of Whole Foods. FACT personally contacted Mr. Mackey concerning his support for Gafni. We asked him to reevaluate his position and instead to support the dozens of alleged victims of Gafni. We have yet to hear a reply.

“Having first-hand experience of Gafni’s dangerous proclivities, as well as being very familiar with the strategies he uses to convince others he is harmless, we feel a moral obligation to break our silence, in order to help insure that no one else is exploited and abused due to lack of information.” - from the Marc Gafni victim coalition

Tomorrow we’ll dig into his dark past, shedding light onto who Marc Gafni really is. Stay tuned…
