Buckminster Fuller has called Barbara Marx Hubbard “the best informed human now alive regarding futurism and the foresights it has produced.” Widely regarded as his philosophical heir, Barbara is a social innovator, speaker, author, educator, and leader in the new worldview of conscious evolution.
Currently Barbara is serving as a global voice for “Birth 2012: Co-Creating a Planetary Shift in Time for Dec. 22, 2012.” This event, hosted by The Shift Network, is designed to connect what is working in the world and celebrate the emergence of the next era of evolution. Working with The Shift Network, she is also offering advanced trainings for Agents of Conscious Evolution to participate in forming the actual Birth Day Party events world-wide.
Barbara is a co-founder of The Evolutionary Leaders Council where she is co-chairing with Andrew Cohen a team to define and develop The Meaning of Conscious Evolution to become a collaboratory planetary dialogue.
Barbara also is the producer and narrator of an award-winning, ongoing DVD series entitled “Humanity Ascending: A New Way through Together.” Part One, entitled “Our Story” has been translated into seven languages. Part Two is entitled “Visions of Universal Humanity.”
In 1945, when Barbara was 15 years old, the first atomic bombs were dropped on Japan. This terrible act prompted Barbara to ask the fundamental questions: “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.
