BAI is honored and delighted to present an evening with one of the world’s foremost evolutionary thinkers and activists, Barbara Marx Hubbard. In more than 40 years as a pioneer in conscious evolution, Barbara has designed and developed numerous programs that empower individuals and communities to grow into their full evolutionary potential. Through speaking engagements across the globe, through her books, and in her collaborations across many fields, Barbara has done more than anyone to bring the ideas of conscious evolution into the world.
We’re particularly excited that Barbara is choosing this occasion to propose and describe a new social synergy function to scan for, map, connect and communicate what is working in the world. If Nature is basically a hierarchy of synergistic convergence, then social synergy is one of the frontiers of conscious evolution. What are the lessons we can learn from the Kosmic Creativity inherent in nature’s 13.7 billion year trend? How do we connect what is creative for the good of the self and the whole? How can we connect what is emerging toward convergence and a whole system shift? Is eros becoming “telerotic?” Are we at the threshold of the evolution of democracy itself toward “synocracy,” or Synergistic Democracy? How can we best use the cultural attention to 2012 to foster the emergence of 10% of humanity toward second tier awareness?
Barbara’s talk will draw on her experience of 25 synergistic convergence conferences called SYNCON, as well as having her name placed in nomination for the Vice Presidency on the Democratic ticket in 1984.
Barbara’s presentations are always lively, engaging and thought provoking so don’t miss this one!
Barbara Marx Hubbard has been called “the voice for conscious evolution of our time” by Deepak Chopra and is the subject of Neale Donald Walsch’s new book The Mother of Invention. A world-renowned visionary futurist, evolutionary educator and inspiring speaker, Barbara is the author of seven acclaimed books that communicate the new worldview of conscious evolution. She is teaching two seminal courses on the Shift Network, one called “Agents of Conscious Evolution” (ACE), bringing thousands of participants together to form a first “evolutionary corps” as a global team for the planetary shift; and the other, with Patricia Ellsberg entitled “Emergence: The Shift from Ego to Essence.”
She is the co-founder and chair of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution, and additionally co-founded many progressive organizations, including The Association for Global New Thought, as well as The World Future Society. In 1984 her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States on the Democratic ticket with the campaign theme “To Fulfill the Dream, a Campaign for a Positive Future.”
She is currently co-producing with The Shift Network a global multi-media event entitled, “Birth 2012: Co-Creating a Planetary Shift in Time” on Dec. 22, 2012 which aims to unify 100 million people worldwide in heart coherence and social synergy to birth a new “evolved” era and a “universal humanity.”
Barbara’s previous books include: The Hunger of Eve, The Revelation, Conscious Evolution, Emergence, and The 52 Codes for Conscious Self Evolution. Her new book Birth 2012 and Beyond: Humanity’s Great Shift To the Age of Conscious Evolution is being released in May 2012 by Shift Books. www.birth2012.com
