Marc Gafni, of Pacific Grove, CA, wants to remake American spirituality, according to a recent profile by the New York Times. He’s founded an organization called the Center for Integral Wisdom, to “evolve the source code for human existence,” according to its website.

Gafni’s executive board of directors includes high profile supporters and New Age luminaries:

  • John Mackey, co-founder of Whole Foods.
  • Barbara Marx Hubbard
  • John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
  • Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
  • Adam Bellow, Vice President and Editorial Director of HarperCollins Books

But Gafni, who was born Mordechai Winiartz, was a rabbi — until Jewish leaders essentially ran him out of the religion as a sexual predator.

He was accused of molesting a 15-year-old girl and attempted sexual assault on a young woman. Gafni went to Israel, where three women filed complaints with the police about him.

One expert considers him to be a cult leader.

Now, many Jewish leaders are petitioning Whole Foods and others to cut all financial and institutional ties with him.

    It’s amazing what their charisma and charm will allow them to get away with. You’d hate to think that those that are helping people like that might have the same nefarious agenda. Money, sex and power, the three dirtiest words in the English or any other language. There must be something in it for them to align themselves with such an evil person. When it comes to psychopaths a lot of people can be bought off. Pathetic.
