But she does believe that humanity has the tools, fortitude, and resolve to take the leap towards conscious evolution. Deepak Chopra MD called her "the voice for conscious evolution..." She is an evolutionary thinker who believes that global change happens when we work collectively and selflessly for the greater good, problems are evolutionary drivers, and crises precede transformation.

Greetings Beloved Evolutionary Allies,
I am delighted to invite you to The Sacred Journey of the Conscious Evolutionary 3.0, which offers a path toward the next stage of our evolution. It is a life-changing process of stepping over the threshold and becoming an embodiment of a whole being.
We are entering the first era of conscious evolution. We are the first generation on Earth to be aware of evolution and to realize that we are affecting it by everything that we do. Evolution by choice not chance is radically new.
We are emerging from consciousness of our self as a separate self-reflective being, to the awareness of ourselves as unique expressions of the impulse of evolution. We are evolution becoming self-aware.
This is as great a step as from Homo neanderthal to Homo sapien. When we combine our expanding consciousness with our new scientific and technological capacities, we are emerging, even now, as an Earth/Space and eventually cosmic humanity.
How do we cross this threshold?
It is natural, as evolution itself is natural. And because we are entering the phase of conscious evolution, it takes attention, choice and resonance with others.
It takes spiritual and social wisdom we have gained, and applies it to embodying our own to a higher degree of love/intelligence.
During every class of The Sacred Journey 3.0, we will co-create a deep resonant morphogenetic field together so potent that when we enter it, it enters us.
It new pattern of evolution that corresponds and awakens what is already emerging within you. In this field, you will transmit directly from this inner evolutionary impulse.
Your deepest heart’s desire and your impulse to create and express will be empowered by the 13.8-billion-year impulse animating and pulsating within your blood and bones, activated by the field that we create together.
In this third incarnation, The Sacred Journey is becoming a way of life for many, an on-going process of self and social emergence.
Past Sacred Journey participants are becoming facilitators, communicators, and building communities and centers.
This is not a new church, but almost that. It is a new “communion” of pioneering souls — people gathering as an expression and empowerment of the divine potential and unfolding in a field of resonance and evolutionary love.
In The Sacred Journey 3.0, we will also ignite a dynamic new opportunity for self and social action on a global scale.
It is called “Campaign 2020.”
Its purpose is that, by the International Day of Peace, September 21, 2020, we will connect co-creators worldwide in a planetary awakening of love that will shift the whole system in time.
For the next five years, people throughout the world will be invited to join virtually and voice their passion to create innovations in small groups and on the internet.
So by International Peace Day in 2020, we will have an early vision of the actual reality of the new world (which is already emerging!).
Imagine telling the real story of the birth of Homo universalis, our own emerging species. We need all artists, writers and co-creators to say: GO Humanity!
Over the 20 weeks of The Sacred Journey we will be preparing preparing for 2020, expressing our own voices as elements of what Marc Gafni calls the sacred “Unique Self Symphony.”
This is a new planetary experiment and we invite you to help initiate as a real live expression of the new humanity.
Welcome to the greatest adventure on Earth!
Agents of Conscious Evolution Immersion Retreat! September 13-17, 2015, Petaluma, CA
I am VERY excited about the upcoming ACE retreat with my co-teacher (and beloved sister) Patricia Ellsberg. We’ve created a new series of recordings about this “Advance” communion of pioneering souls that will take place September 13-18, 2015 at Earthrise Campus at IONS in Petaluma, CA.
Please enjoy this new clip about the opening evening and first full day: Agents of Conscious Immersion Live Retreat
Our intention is to give you a felt sense of the transmissions we’re receiving about this next stage of the evolutionary journey. We feel as if we are transmitting a lived experience of wholeness from the resonant field of divine love.
If you join the 50 other pioneering souls that embark on this unprecedented journey, you’ll be contributing to what I believe is the most important work on the planet: Shifting humanity from the old “memetic” codes that have destroyed millions of human beings and entire species of animals and plants -- and replacing them with the new codes for a peaceful, just and sustainable world.
It takes really activating and living the codes, which this retreat can help make a reality for you.
You’ll have a chance to explore new systems, processes and technologies in a resonant field of love that is the “incubator” for a new future and a new human experience.
You’ll find more details about this extraordinary in-person, evolutionary “experiment”, here: Agents of Conscious Immersion Live Retreat
I hope you enjoy the recording with me and Patricia--“stay tuned” for more!
Please join us for this live retreat!
Women, Wisdom and Leadership: Leadership from the Inside Out, A Summit of Evolutionary Leaders
with Barbara Marx Hubbard, Dena Merriam, Jane Sloane, Carolyn Rivers
Sep 25, 2015 to Sep 27, 2015
Lance Hall, 150 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC
Women, Wisdom, Leadership from the Inside Out Summit
Featuring Barbara Marx Hubbard
Imagine an extraordinary gathering of women awakening to their full potential and being empowered to become passionate, co-creative agents for change.
The Sophia Institute’s Women, Wisdom, Leadership from the Inside Out Summit will welcome women from all over the country for a weekend with evolutionary leaders as together we explore empowering women and advancing women’s leadership from the inside out.
There is a new kind of woman arising everywhere on Earth. The main characteristic of this kind of “evolutionary woman” is that we are motivated from within by a powerful process of creation awakening in us as an irresistible heart’s desire to give our full potential in the world.
The co-creative feminine is inner guided, whole oriented, and attracts others who are also responding to inner guidance that has a universal focus. This archetype transcends gender because it includes masculine principles of inspired vision, rational understanding, and a tendency to take a practical approach that is also spiritual. This archetype is life transforming because she reflects a synthesis of masculine and feminine principles.
There are many men who are also experiencing evolutionary desires to serve a greater good which means they are unifying with their inner feminine principle.
This Summit, designed for women, will be experiential, deep, joyful, and mysterious.
We will explore
*The shift from Ego to Essence: gaining our true identity.
* How to access our full capacities to become passionate, creative agents for change.
* How we use our individual gifts, talents and inner resources as part of the incredible transformation happening in women’s lives and in the world.
* How new pathways and practices are pointing us toward our fullest potential.
* How feminine leadership differs from the male model and why our world needs the balance.
* How to deepen partnerships with men to be effective co-creators of the future.
