Imagine Being Part of a Conscious Global Community
With 3,000+ Other Like-Minded Souls Who Are Passionately
Co-Creating a New Possibility for Our Planet in Collaboration with
Our World’s Top Evolutionary Leaders & Visionaries
Learn How to Activate Your Evolutionary Potential and
Contribute Your Unique Gifts to a Global, Heart-Centered
Movement That’s Co-Creating a Healthy, Sustainable,
Peaceful and Prosperous World for All
We stand at the threshold of a great possibility for both ourselves and our planet.
It’s a time of incredible challenge and opportunity – a time that many indigenous traditions from across the world have foretold as the completion of a Great Cycle and the dawn of a new era of promise and potential for humanity.
The end of 2012 marked a birth moment for a new era, with thousands of events and millions of participants worldwide all envisioning the dawning of this new world together.
Now is the time when we turn the birth into an enduring shift to a new culture and consciousness. This is the turning point decade when we can create a world based on our creativity, our unity, and our love. Let’s each help fulfill the prophecies of entering a new Golden Age!
If you are reading this message and are feeling the inner call to seize this rare opportunity and actively participate in this great planetary shift, then you are becoming what we would call an “Agent of Conscious Evolution.”
If you can no longer settle for a mediocre life of complacency and conformity and are instead compelled to bring forth the best of who you are, and contribute your unique gifts for the betterment of our world, then we would be delighted for you to help us co-create this inspiring possibility.
As a wise Hopi Elder said: “You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour... We are the ones we have been waiting for.”
If this is true, and we are the generation that is responsible for bringing about this profound global shift, then what kind of skills, training and community support will we need to translate this empowering vision into a reality?
Our Planetary Crisis is Our Greatest Opportunity
Aside from indigenous prophecy, those of us who are aware of world events can clearly see the powerful social, economic and political changes are sweeping the planet. Will they become increasingly destructive? Or will we use these crises as an opportunity to evolve more quickly than ever before to a new way of being?
The choice is ours.
In the mainstream media, our times are often portrayed as precarious and grim. The media paint the picture that we are teetering on the edge of environmental collapse and global disaster, buffeted by senseless war, suffering and strife.
However, they neglect the fact that this intense and often emotional drama has one powerful solution: our conscious evolution as a species.
We have within us extraordinary creative potentials that have yet to be massively unleashed, leading to wide-scale cooperation, innovation, sustainability and peace.
All that the world truly needs to make this collective shift is a critical mass of empowered, evolutionary change agents who can envision what’s possible and are willing to roll up their sleeves and take the necessary actions to make it happen.
The ironic and somewhat painful truth is that the solutions to fix EVERY ONE of our problems are already available; it’s only the outdated human software that needs to be upgraded!
As Einstein famously said “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
If Einstein is correct and all we really need to do is awaken and embody a new level of consciousness, what can we do right now to help birth this expanded state of awareness into our world?
Discover an Evolutionary Roadmap for You to Become a Powerful Catalyst for Personal and Planetary Change
Which brings us to YOU: are you one of those rare individuals inspired to upgrade your outdated “software” and bring this emerging level of consciousness into our world?
Are you ready to “reboot” the dysfunctional programming on planet earth and “encode” a more holistic, compassionate and sacred vision that serves all of life?
Are you open to connect with the evolutionary intelligence of the cosmos and manifest what IS truly possible within yourself and our world, rather than focus excessively on the problems and lament about what no longer works?
If so, we want you to join us for the extraordinary 12-Week Agents of Conscious Evolution Training with one of today’s greatest and most empowering teachers and visionaries: Barbara Marx Hubbard, the woman Deepak Chopra calls “THE voice for conscious evolution in our times.”
The Agents of Conscious Evolution (ACE) training is the culmination of Barbara’s life’s work and deepest passion. Through it, she co-created a global movement to celebrate the Birth of a new era in 2012.
Now it’s time for the seeds planted last year to blossom into beautiful change in the years ahead as the ACE movement grows enduring hubs for conscious evolution around the world, all building towards the systemic shifts ahead of us.
Barbara Marx Hubbard has spent more than 50 years doing in-depth research and practice to unlock the mysteries of the human potential and bring about the birth of what she calls “the Universal Human”: an awakened, heart-centered being that lives in harmony with itself, the earth and all of life.
In this transformational training, she offers you the very best of her evolutionary tools, teachings and practices to activate your full creative potential, and inspire you to move from your “work” to your “vocation of destiny.”
She will train you step-by-step in the skills necessary to catalyze transformation within yourself, your family and your community.
And best of all she will connect you with a global movement of empowered evolutionary leaders who are lighting the way forward, each of whom is sharing THEIR greatest gifts.
The Agents of Conscious Evolution – or ACE – Training gives you a proven roadmap for joyful co-creation with other like minds and hearts, while also providing you a clear path for you to manifest your soul’s purpose in life.
In short, it teaches you how to become an evolutionary mystic – to make the inner shift from your head to your heart, from ego to essence.
There is a profound evolutionary process underway on our planet, and the crises we face can be seen as evolutionary drivers – preceding the arrival of a new level of awareness. These catalytic events are accelerating, which is really good news because it means the shift is happening.
Many prophecies concur that the time for a planetary shift has begun. Only it’s not happening by magic; it only happens when those of us with the inner “codes” and vision step forward to co-create a world that works for everybody.
If we do that, we can collectively ignite a new way of being that endures for many generations to come.
This truly is the hour for which you – and all of us – were born.
And the ACE Training will help you make the best use of this hour AND hone your unique gifts as an empowered Agent of Conscious Evolution.

An Important Message from Barbara Marx Hubbard
Dear Agents of Conscious Evolution (ACEs) throughout the world,
This is the most extraordinary invitation I have offered in my long life of 83 years!
It’s to participate as an Agent of Conscious Evolution in your own self and social development, as part of a global movement toward a planetary co-creative culture..
The new reality is: We are on the threshold of the first Age of Conscious Evolution. This means to survive and thrive we are learning to be causal: evolution by choice, not chance.
An “agent” of conscious evolution is on such a threshold – a person awakened from within by the impulse of evolution, by spirit-in-action to give more, to love more, to be more of who we really are: our Full Potential Selves.
This is not merely another class. It’s a call to the deepest level of cocreativity within each of us.
In retrospect we may find that the emergence of evolutionary consciousness and action, which we are now entering, will be comparable to the emergence of self-reflective consciousness 50,000 years ago!
The result of our work together will be unpredictable and emergent. No one has guided a culture from an over-populating, polluting, warring stage toward a sustainable and ever-evolving pattern of growth.
That’s our work...to help midwife this transition by offering a new worldview, an evolving Inner Journey as well as an involvement in vocational and social evolution toward a future equal to our spiritual, social and scientific/technological potentials.
In this 12-week training I will provide you with the latest insights, experiences and transmissions developed in my life’s work, offering a new map to “cross the gap” from here-breakdowns in a devolving world – to there – breakthroughs in an evolving world. The “map” is the whole sacred story of our emergence from the origin of creation, through billions of years of crises and transformation, applying lessons from deep time past to guide us toward the next stage of our own evolution.
In the first hour of each class, which will be live video-streamed, I will provide an in-depth transmission of each key theme, combined with an experiential practice related to each theme that has inspired and guided me over 50 years of evolutionary revelation. In the second hour, you’ll learn practices and skills to further your work as an Agent – communication and facilitation skills, evolutionary meditations and social practices, and then you’ll work in evolutionary circles to embody and apply what you learn.
The ACE Training is the most potent synthesis of my life’s work. As we develop together with other co-evolutionaries the Field of Conscious Evolution (the entire process of creation from the origin of the universe to us as conscious participants in universal evolution), my intuition is that we are forming the early basis for the evolution of education itself, a seedling for a Global Universal University for the Conscious Evolution of Humanity designed to help us participate in the Whole System Shift.
Please join us. I am so excited at the opportunity to know you, and hopefully meet you as we work together in the most exciting, uncertain and fulfilling new epoch in our species history.
Yours in the Spirit of Evolution and Love for All Life,
What Respected Leaders Say about Barbara Marx Hubbard
From the Desk of Stephen Dinan, founder of The Shift Network
Dear Allies in the shift,
I know, deep in my heart, that we are all coming together for something truly unprecedented. If you are reading this letter, you know it.
We are here to participate in the Great Turning from one era into another. Our planetary crises AND our abundant creativity are together pushing for this larger shift, and it’s happening right now. It merely needs to be accelerated, nurtured and made visible to the whole of humanity, inviting their participation.
That’s why we are building transformative programs that help shift our culture to health, sustainability, peace and prosperity – all based on a new culture of oneness.
At the core of this vision are Agents of Conscious Evolution – the frontline of our global movement – who are building hubs of support, creativity and collaboration to serve as the heart and soul of the new era.
We’ve already grown a strong global network with the major events of 2012. Now is when we build this network into an enduring movement for evolutionary change.
But we need people like you who are committed to BE the change, live from love and create communities of empowerment and awakening worldwide.
If you have felt the calling to serve this shift to a new era, this training is for you.
Imagine what’s possible if tens of millions of us join together in the coming years to express our highest consciousness and creativity. Imagine connecting what is innovative and creative at a planetary scale. Imagine what can be unleashed.
For the ACE Training, we will give you everything we can to prepare you to help catalyze this wave of planetary change. We want you to learn, transform and open to your highest gifts. And we want you to become part of our team to create something truly magnificent.
That is our invitation and if your soul rings with knowing when you hear this, please do join us.
The Agents of Conscious Evolution (ACE) Course Overview
The ACE Training is designed to:
- Give you a comprehensive blueprint for understanding and facilitating conscious evolution within yourself and others
- Empower you with daily transformational practices, so you can truly embody the principles, deepen your connection with Source, align with your most joyful path and become an evolutionary pioneer.
- Connect you with a conscious community of like minds and hearts, to support each other and co-create projects, ideas and inspirations to help midwife this emerging world into being.
The Conscious Evolutionary Worldview:
In this training, you will become an evolutionary pioneer empowered with the tools, practices and resources to help co-create the next stage of human culture and planetary awakening.
One of the key foundations for leading the change is learning to embody, integrate and express a conscious evolutionary worldview – as the way you see the world creates much of your reality.
Understanding and embodying the worldview of conscious evolution and its deeper dynamics will help to not only catalyze profound changes in your own life, but will also support the greater global paradigm shift to a more conscious, heart-centered perspective.
As you make this shift and share your passion and inspiration with others – you’ll be expanding the greater field of conscious evolution.
Each module is a step on the evolutionary journey toward becoming an Agent of Conscious Evolution contributing to a universal humanity.
Module 1: Communicating the Sacred Story of Conscious Evolution (January 29)
With the threat of environmental and social collapse in many parts of the world, our culture has lost its compelling meta-narrative.
However, when you place yourself in the Universe Story – the 13.7 billion year sacred story of evolution through crisis and transformation leading to ever higher consciousness, freedom and more synergistic order – you can see that we are actually facing consciously what nature has learned to do for billions of years.
In this session, you will:
- Understand the unfolding of the Universe Story through deep-time history using the evolutionary spiral as a developmental framework.
- Recognize that you are an expression of the Universe Story; you are the universe in person, unfolding in an evolutionary mode, as the universe becoming conscious of itself.
- Reflect on the power of story to change yourself and the world, and see how this story applies to your experience.
- Clarify your intention and purpose in choosing to evolve.
Module 2: Understanding the Worldview of Conscious Evolution: Choosing to Evolve (February 5)
Conscious evolution is the evolution from unconscious to conscious choice. Meaning evolution by choice, not chance. It marks a phase-change in evolution itself, leading to the empowerment of humanity in our ever-evolving universe.
As a developing Agent of Conscious Evolution you are a co-founder of the evolutionary movement now being born in every field and function as old systems break down and new systems emerge through all of us.
In this session, you will:
- Learn the new worldview of conscious evolution, giving you the tools to become causal in your life by identifying situations in which you can evolve by choice, not chance.
- Realize that you can choose the story you tell yourself about life experiences and thereby affect your own reality and everything around you – consciously evolving your life and contributing to the planetary shift.
- Reflect on your life story through “evolutionary eyes,” finding the gifts within your past and present challenges.
- See that your choice for more life, more expression, more love is natural and supported by the whole process of creation within you and beyond you.
Module 3: Practicing Evolutionary Spirituality (February 12)
Evolutionary spirituality is the experience of incarnating the “Impulse of Evolution” as your own motivation to evolve. The originating Source that is creating the universe is becoming conscious of itself within you. In essence, you are “bringing God home as our own evolutionary potential”.
As an Agent, you are invited to enter a new sacred space called “Inner Sanctuary.” The planetary shift is occurring as many more of us are personally moving from ego to essence, and from fear into creativity and love. This is a critical aspect in your developmental path as a co-creator in self-evolution.
In this session, you will:
- Connect to your own inner “Inner Sanctuary” throughout the day, as a source for continuous inspiration and guidance.
- Learn a wide range of practices to connect to Source. Choose the best practice for you and gain support for maintaining it and deepening it throughout the course.
- Bring your brain and heart into “coherence” by practicing techniques pioneered by HeartMath. You will also learn to create resonance when two or more are gathered to work together.
- Learn the distinction between the ego and essence, and practice shifting from ego towards essence as your true identity and nature.
- Discover how the emerging process of your personal shift contributes to the planetary shift.
Module 4: Accessing Your Deeper Life Purpose (February 19)
As you make the shift to a conscious evolutionary worldview, a greater impulse of life purpose is awakened.
In evolutionary conversations with others who share your worldview, you will cultivate the “Impulse of Evolution” by bringing forth your unique calling and creativity in the company of other pioneering souls.
In this session, you will:
- Learn to follow and act from your “compass of joy,” your own internal impulse of evolution, as it guides you to right action moment to moment.
- Feel the power of group coherence and “vocational arousal” when two or more are gathered in a resonant field of communion.
- Recognize vocation as a set of activities and experiences that bring you consistent joy – as the impulse of evolution localized within you.
- Develop sacred practices to support your communion with two or more locally or globally in the field of pioneering souls.
Module 5: Activating Your Evolutionary Leadership and Evolutionary Circles (February 26)
Here you will hone your emergent capacities for co-creative leadership and interaction, activating inner qualities that stimulate you to become an evolutionary leader.
While holding a space of deep listening and receptivity to others, you will learn to facilitate evolutionary co-creativity. And as you maintain an evolutionary mindset that you are inventing the future and looking for “next” practices and “best” practices, you will learn to engage the roles of dissonance and consonance in creating group harmony and coherence.
In this session, you will:
- Learn to embody the essence of leadership.
- Understand the technology of open mind, open heart and open will.
- Cultivate listening to the larger field.
- Explore action learning.
- Learn about leading from the future.
- Learn about creating and leading Vistar Circles as a building block for evolutionary community.
Module 6: Discovering the Patterns of a Co-Creative Society (March 5)
Learn to follow your compass of joy, and begin to notice the “sector” of the social body within which you are naturally attracted to co-create.
These are represented by sectors of the Wheel of Co-Creation. You will begin to experience evolution by attraction in which each person is free to give his or her best in their chosen area.
In this session, you will:
- Learn to feel your part in the greater whole, follow your compass of joy, and allow that inspiration and aspiration to empower and align you with the Impulse of Evolution.
- Become a cultural co-creator, in which you intuit the greater pattern of evolution and discover that your role is integral and vital to the larger design.
- Begin to align your own calling with others within and across sectors of the Wheel.
- Explore the pattern of “12 around 1” as an organizing principle for wholeness.
Module 7: Pioneering Synergistic Democracy (March 12)
Nature is a hierarchy of synergies that has created vast interconnected organisms for billions of years. The difference is now you are ready to create synergy consciously in order to survive and thrive. This is the wake-up call that can mature our species.
The conflicts and polarization in the world serve as evolutionary drivers toward a synergistic democracy. This is your opportunity to develop and experience the “memetic code” of the next stage of democracy.
In this session, you will:
- Identify what’s needed for you to give your deepest gifts into our society and the ways you can contribute to the inspired efforts of others.
- Discover sophisticated networking tools that can help you find soul allies who want to partner on co-creative projects.
- Learn about synergistic democracy through the example of the SYNCON – a process where key individuals from each sector of society come together in the spirit of collaboration and identify breakthrough ideas and potential links.
- Continue to use the Wheel of Co-Creation to support whole system shifting.
Module 8: Co-Creating the “New News” of What is Working (March 19)
You are now ready to discover and connect what is working in every field and function as well as identify projects that are contributing toward a co-creative humanity.
As an Agent, you will learn how to identify local and global projects and co-creators, masterful innovators in every field and function who are already successful pioneers and initiators to help create a beautiful convergence and coherence of what is working, in service to the larger shift.
In this session, you will:
- Explore The Planetary Peace Room where we learn together how to scan for, map, connect, and communicate what is working within key sectors of the Wheel of Co-Creation, identifying the genius of major global co-creators.
- Identify social innovations such as new healthcare advances, conscious business, technological innovations, educational breakthroughs, and entrepreneurship that can help create a new planetary civilization.
- Explore using digital media to communicate this “new news” to your community.
- Celebrate individuals who are “crossing the gap” as conscious evolutionary leaders.
Module 9: Co-Creating the Planetary Shift in the New Era of Evolution: Includes Special Guest: Shift Network founder Stephen Dinan (March 26)
This module prepares you to imagine and pre-experience the actuality of humanity’s planetary shift.
In this session, you will:
- Learn about current plans for upcoming activities so you can actively participate in formal events in 2013 and beyond.
- Share creative ways you might participate and attract others to weave their genius together.
- Explore ideas for spreading excitement and engaging other networks of allies in collaborative initiatives.
- Further the process of assembling and organizing into a more coherent and sustainable community that makes evolution engaging and impactful.
Module 10: Growing the Field of Conscious Evolution (April 9)
Wherever two or more Agents of Conscious Evolution are joined heart with heart, the process of creation is activated. As an Agent, you will cultivate a resonant field of oneness with others by opening your heart and deepening your universal consciousness.
Through evolutionary circles, hubs and groups, you will be seeding patterns of synergistic cooperation that contribute to the planetary birth. Groups networking with each other can create a communal force to awaken evolutionary pioneers to launch the new movement for the planetary shift.
In this session, you will:
- Embody the power of group coherence and understand what’s possible when two or more are gathered in communion.
- Cultivate communion in resonant practices with other Agents, as well as with neighbors, family and other evolutionary souls in your community.
- Explore how to become an evolutionary community.
- Learn about forming hubs as seedlings of a planetary culture.
- Become aware of the patterns and dynamics that create successful evolutionary communities.
Module 11: Taking the Inner Journey toward a Universal Human (April 16)
This module prepares you for “mothering and fathering” the growth of the planetary infant. This is a loving process of nurturing what is being born within us.
The new norm for you includes incarnating the impulse of evolution, deepening your mystical peak experiences, and becoming a conscious co-creator with the creative process itself.
In this session, you will:
- Access your own "inner scripture" guiding you as to what is deeply new within you through the 52 Codes for Conscious Self Evolution .
- Relate what is being born in you to the 100-year collective vision of a universal humanity that calls upon your vocations of destiny.
- Gain skills in entering the "imaginal realm" as a storyteller and visionary of the new.
- Learn about continuing opportunities to receive support from the ACE Program, the Shift Network and others for your ongoing growth, transformation, and evolutionary leadership.
Module 12: Celebrating the Journey (April 23)
Through the journey of this ACE Training, you will have learned about the evolutionary worldview and your place in what’s emerging. You will have learned many practices to help you re-create your own story and shift from ego to essence.
You will have been practicing your social synergy and evolutionary leadership skills. You will have mapped specific ways you will contribute to our planetary shift. And now it’s time to reflect on how you’ve grown and identify the next steps of your own journey from here.
In this session, you will:
- Review what you have learned in the course and assess where you are now strong and what areas you want to continue to focus on in your development as an Agent of Conscious Evolution.
- Share your intentions and next steps with your evolutionary circle.
- Receive reflections from team-members who have witnessed your growth and transformation through the process.
- Participate in a “graduation celebration” and enjoy the fruits of your co-creative journey with Barbara and other Agents.
Replays – To accommodate ACE participants from countries with time zones that don’t work with the live Tuesday session, we’ll do a rebroadcast each Friday at 10 am Pacific / 1 pm Eastern / 5 pm Greenwich (UTC) / 7 pm Central Europe. Participants will be able to connect in live groups at that time as well.

Time magazine hailed Chopra one of the top one hundred heroes and icons of the twentieth century, and credits him as “the poet-prophet of alternative medicine.”
Bonus #2 Training with Gary Zukav: Authentic Power for Conscious Evolutionaries
We are evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses – external power – into a species that pursues authentic power – power that comes when our personality is aligned with our soul. When we learn to live in this way, our authentic power creates a life of purpose and joy. At it’s essence, this shift is simply about moving from fear to Love, though the actual living of this is not always easy.
In this session, Gary and Barbara discuss the power of love and how to come into your own soul’s alignment as you learn how to cultivate and embody "authentic power for conscious evolutionaries."
Gary Zukav is a world-renowned spiritual teacher and author of four consecutive New York Times bestsellers. Beginning in 1998, he appeared more than 30 times on The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss transformation in human consciousness concepts presented in The Seat of the Soul.

Bonus #5 with Andrew Cohen: The Meaning of Conscious Evolution and Evolutionary Enlightenment
In this engaging dialogue, Andrew and Barbara demonstrate how you can actually become a genuine agent of conscious evolution at this most critical time in our culture, when the whole system is both breaking down and breaking through.
Drawing from his recent book Evolutionary Enlightenment, Andrew shares the nature of the Impulse of Evolution, the “Inner Big Bang,” the prime motivating force within you, for self and social evolution.
His message is simple, yet profound: Life is evolution, and enlightenment is about waking up to this fundamentally creative impulse as your own deepest, most authentic self.
Andrew Cohen is an internationally respected spiritual teacher, cultural visionary, and founder of the global nonprofit EnlightenNext and its award-winning publication EnlightenNext magazine. He is known for bringing the timeless depth of enlightened wisdom into the 21st century – calling not for transcendence of worldly attachment, or even for compassionate care and service, but for a deep and heroic responsibility for the evolution of the world.
Bonus #6 with don Miguel Ruiz: Making a New Agreement to Live
Your Life in Truth and Integrity
In this inspiring conversation, #1 bestselling Four Agreements author don Miguel Ruiz invites you to step into a new agreement for your life: one based in your deepest truth and integrity.
He gives new meaning to the much-talked-about end of the Mayan calendar, saying this time is really the end of humans living in fear and superstition. And he illuminates how you can help bring about a new era based on the principles of love, authenticity, integrity and collaboration.
don Miguel Ruiz was born into a family of healers, and raised in rural Mexico by a curandera (healer) mother and a nagual (shaman) grandfather. The family anticipated that Miguel would embrace their centuries-old legacy of healing and teaching, and carry forward the esoteric Toltec knowledge. Instead, distracted by modern life, Miguel chose to attend medical school and become a surgeon. A near-death experience changed his life.
Stunned by this experience, he began an intensive practice of self-inquiry. He devoted himself to the mastery of the ancient ancestral wisdom, studying earnestly with his mother, and completing an apprenticeship with a powerful shaman in the Mexican desert. In the tradition of the Toltecs, a nagual guides an individual to personal freedom. don Miguel is a nagual from the Eagle Knight lineage, and is dedicated to sharing his knowledge of the teachings of the ancient Toltecs.

Deepak Chopra says Rinaldo Brutoco understands how to create a vision for sustainable and responsible business.
In this insightful session, Rinaldo and Barbara discuss the challenges and limitations of the prevailing profit-focused business model while outlining a clear roadmap towards a future where business and evolutionary principles merge into a powerful partnership focused on sustainability, social conscience and abundance for one and all.
Rinaldo Brutoco is president of the World Business Academy, a leading international executive, writer and keynote speaker for more than 25 years. Rinaldo is widely recognized as a practical visionary, change agent and futurist. He uniquely combines theory and practice to assist individuals, executives and organizations in adapting to change with breakthrough ideas.

This terrible act prompted Barbara to ask the fundamental question: “What is the meaning of our new power that can be used for the good? And “What are positive images of the future equal to these new powers?” This defining moment propelled her on her life’s quest to find answers to these questions. The insights she has gained has led to her definitive message of hope that “our crisis is a birth” of a more universal human and universal humanity.
As a co-founder of The Evolutionary Leaders Council she is co-chairing with Andrew Cohen a global dialogue on The Meaning of Conscious Evolution. Barbara is also the subject of a recent biography by Neale /sites/all/modules/theshiftnetwork/tsn_courses/frontend/files/AgentsofConsciousEvolution7/images/ald Walsch entitled: The Mother of Invention: The Legacy of Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Future of You.
She is currently the producer and narrator of an award-winning, on-going DVD series entitled “Humanity Ascending: A New Way through Together.” Part One: Our Story, translated into seven languages, has been selected for the prestigious Spiritual Cinema Circle. Part Two: Visions of a Universal Humanity, now brings together cutting-edge scientific, social and spiritual visionaries to create a positive vision of our future equal to our new capacities.
In 1984 her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States on the Democratic ticket, calling for a “Peace Room” as sophisticated as our war room, to scan for, map, connect and communicate what is working in America and the world.
As a citizen diplomat in the former Soviet Union during the 1980’s she co-chaired a number of Soviet-American Citizen Summits, introducing a new form of conferencing called SYNCON to foster synergistic convergence. This model brings opposing groups and functions together to seek common goals and match needs and resources including the growing edge of human capacities, spiritual, social and scientific/technological of the whole system.
