Inspirations: Barbara Marx Hubbard on Co-Creating Change (August 2012)
Can we, as a society, evolve by choice, not by chance? Absolutely, says social innovator Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential. In this mind-opening conversation, originally webcast live on August 1, 2012, Barbara helps us prepare for humanity’s new era of infinite possibility.
In 1945 the United States dropped atomic bombs on Japan, and the world caught its breath. This pivotal event deeply impacted the young Barbara Marx Hubbard, who found herself asking President Eisenhower, "What is the meaning of our power that is good"? Barbara's inquiry of 40-plus years, and the answers she has found, offer invaluable assistance to us all at this time in our history. Despite the state of the world, we are truly on the threshold of great possibility, of our own conscious evolution.
Barbara Marx Hubbard is a prolific author, visionary, social innovator, evolutionary thinker and educator. She is co-founder and chairperson of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. She is the producer and narrator of the award-winning documentary series entitled Humanity Ascending: A New Way through Together and has recently partnered with The Shift Network as a global ambassador for the conscious evolution movement; a shift from evolution by chance towards evolution by choice.
