Thursday Pre Conference Workshop
The Next Step in Conscious Evolution
Barbara Marx Hubbard
Ms. Hubbard will present an overview of our planetary evolution, identifying where we are right now in our planet’s life cycle. What is the meaning of our new crises, and where is the emergent potential leading us—not only in our response to these crises but also in how we use them as evolutionary drivers to discover and enact the next stage of human evolution. You will be introduced to the Wheel of Co-Creation as a participatory model to enter our vocations of choice, to seek common goals, and to match needs with resources to set a template for a more synergistic democracy. Conscious Evolution is a worldview of great hope for humanity. We will examine the growing edge of our spiritual, scientific, and technological capacities as extended potentials of the universal species we are becoming. Ms. Hubbard will also explore the possibility for shared contact with Higher Intelligence as a natural and vital next step in planetary evolution.
Saturday Morning General Session
Barbara Marx Hubbard
What are the evolutionary indications of our emergence as a new humanity facing devolution or conscious self-evolution? Ms. Hubbard will discuss the advent of evolutionary spirituality as a vital component of social and scientific evolution.
Spirit in Action! Sacred Co-Creation, Villa Unspunnen Switzerland, July 30 – August 2, 2015
Co-Facilitators: Barbara Marx Hubbard and Annette Kaiser
Start: Thursday: 30. July 2015
End: Sunday: 02. August 2015
Register: Sacred Co-Creation, Villa Unspunnen
Registration Deadline: 20. July 2015
The Sacred Path of Co-Creators is rooted in the understanding, that the essence of life is One, everybody-all-at-once. In presence from moment to moment, conscious evolution of humanity from Homo sapiens sapiens to Homo universalis is emerging. We are becoming a new species. We are the first generation in the history of this Earth to be aware of our own evolution, and responsible for it. We are evolution brome self-aware.
In this seminar, Barbara likes to offer the following components: 1) The New Story of Creation, 2) Emergence: The shift from Ego to Essence; 3) Metamorphosis and 4) Co-Creation - the formation of evolutionary Universal Human Pods, as seeds of the new culture.
Annette is offering time of silence, and shares her insights of love - the highest dynamic in the Universe in an evolutionary context. She works with meditation, dreamwork and small inputs.
Together with all participants, we weave the thread of sacred Co-Creation.
The Conscious Elder, August 28-30, 2015
Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY

While traditionally our society has not valued the vital gifts of elders, many older people are involved in a movement that is radically changing this. Increasingly, aging people are exploring how to live with renewed interior purpose along with passionate engagement in the world. Many now understand the profound power and responsibility that comes with the wisdom of a lifetime, including providing guidance to upcoming generations.
There is now a profusion of elders finding ways to give back to the world, providing solutions to some of its most pressing issues. This gathering explores both the interior life of being an elder with all the inherent challenges of aging, as well as how to become catalysts of change skillfully addressing society’s greatest challenges.
Four engaged elders lead us through presentations, panels, experiential processes, small group work, and celebration as we create a community that forges new pathways towards aging with joy, audacity, spiritual depth, and social engagement.
Barbara Marx Hubbard has been called “the voice for conscious evolution of our time” by Deepak Chopra. A prolific author, visionary, social innovator, evolutionary thinker, and educator, she is cofounder and chairperson of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. She is producer and narrator of the award-winning documentary series Humanity Ascending: A New Way Through Together and partnered with the Shift Network as a global ambassador for the conscious evolution movement—a shift from evolution by chance toward evolution by choice.
A pioneer in the field of empowerment, Gail Straub codirects the Empowerment Institute, a school for transformative social change, where her primary focus is women’s and elders’ empowerment. For the last three decades she has offered her work to tens of thousands of people worldwide. Gail also cofounded IMAGINE: A Global Initiative for the Empowerment of Women to help women heal from violence, build strong lives, and contribute to their community, with initiatives underway in Afghanistan, Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, South Africa, India, Brazil, and Jordan.
An organizer of the Conscious Eldering Network (CEN), entrepreneur and engineer John Sorensen had more than 40 years of corporate management, engineering and design devoted to spacecraft and rocket engineering including an astronaut moon landing.
He now uses his life experience as an environmental activist and community organizer in transforming our culture to one that encompasses the wisdom and caring of the conscious elder.

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!
