Co-Sponsored with Impact HUB Oakland
We are happy to once again have the honor of sponsoring one of the founders of modern conscious evolutionary thinking and action, Barbara Marx Hubbard.
In this evening program, Barbara will explore the key themes of her newly revised book, Conscious Evolution, Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential. She will open a deep dialogue on the importance of conscious evolution as it might be compared to the origin of self reflective consciousness 50,000 years ago. The breakthrough here is that we are the first species on this Earth to be aware of our own evolution, aware that we are affecting it by everything that we do, and even more that we ARE evolution itself become self aware. As we gain power we attribute to gods, we can destroy our world, but we can also evolve it into a future of unknown proportions.
What is our vision equal to our potential? What are steps both personal and social that we can take to move toward the emerging world? How can we develop social synergy to connect what is already working? How can we light the fire of love, of vocational arousal, of awakening creativity in ourselves and in evolving humans now proliferating everywhere on Earth? How indeed can our generation be the one to make conscious evolution into reality? Evolution by choice, not chance.
Barbara will explore the spiritual, social and scientific/technological aspects of conscious evolution with special emphasis on The New Story. The New Person. And the New Society.
BAI’s Terry Patten wrote the foreword to Barbara’s book and will engage her in dialog about their shared passion for an evolutionary approach to life. (Copies of Barbara’s book will also be available for purchase.) Barbara has been living this life for over 50 years, well before the Integral vision began to emerge. She is truly one of the giants on whose shoulders the Integral community stands. It’s definitely a must-see event!
