If you’re like most of us, you can be disheartened by the daily news, which can make it seem that humanity is on the precipice of destroying ourselves.

However, there IS another option: our conscious evolution as a species.

You see, nature has been evolving new forms of life for billions of years... and now it is our turn to do it consciously and joyfully create a thriving global society.

To enter this radically new phase of human possibility, our personal and collective evolution must go hand in hand. It's the only way for us to evolve this new society with the wisdom to manage it well.

As we are propelled forward by our global challenges, and drawn by as-yet-barely-imagined possibilities, it’s up to us to become the evolutionary leaders who can fulfill the dream of a peaceful and prosperous world.

Instead of being the end of something, let's become the new beginning: Generation One of a new era!

As GENERATION ONE, we are the first generation of humans on this Earth to be aware of ourselves as one planetary body, affecting our own evolution by everything we do, realizing we can destroy ourselves through the misuse of our new power or evolve ourselves into a universal species that is capable of more than we can currently imagine.

As Generation One, we can create a new template for society and literally BECOME the human pioneers for a new era.

Everyone – no matter what age, faith, culture or point of view is NEW to our current crises and opportunities. No one has “crossed the gap” from planetary breakdown to global breakthrough by harnessing our radical new capacities and technologies. The human technologies of personal and social evolution are now accelerating to keep pace with our rapid technological evolution.

In The Generation One Intensive we will make real progress in realizing astonishing new self and social capacities to respond to our crises and opportunities.

We will lift the lid from the top of our individual vocations and expand our worldview to step forward as the first members of Generation One.

Let’s dare to live the truth that we truly ARE the ones we’ve been waiting for. For millions of years, we’ve evolved largely by chance; now it is time for evolution by choice.

In the Generation One Intensive, we will be doing advanced work in personal transformation as well as developing the ability to bring unitive consciousness forward and build the capacities to realize our vocations in cooperative actions that repattern our society.

As David Gershon, one of our training faculty puts it, it has become obvious that Social Change 1.0 cannot resolve issues like climate change. Only Social Change 2.0 – the empowerment of new social design and people working en masse through social cooperation – can possibly scale up to respond to the new conditions we face.

We will be activating the expression of the highest frequencies of our inner being with the learning of new social capacities to actualize our vocations of destiny.

This entire intensive will be an incubator of new capacities for empowerment of life purpose.

Part 1 of the Intensive will focus on Personal Revelations and Practices to Embody Our New Humanity. Our lead pioneer Barbara Marx Hubbard will work deeply in every class with her most advanced realizations that have been distilled into the “52 Codes for Conscious Self-Evolution.” They will become a shared practice for the six months. They help integrate all levels of our consciousness to become Whole Beings as we feel the amazing energies of the Impulse of Creation working through us.

We will participate consciously in a metamorphosis process, drawing from Barbara’s most profound spiritual experiences, as chronicled in unpublished journals, and experienced in her own personal Christ experiences – all to trigger your own metamorphosis. Each week we’ll be guided by advanced coaching practices for awakening and transformation.

Barbara will be joined by pioneering co-teachers who will teach us to traverse the foundational stages of the inner journey toward universal humanhood or “ultrahumanity.” This is a new word coined by Teilhard de Chardin and developed by Ilia Delio, meaning the evolving human, imbued with the evolutionary expression of love, connecting in creativity with the rapidly growing noosphere – the thinking layer of Earth.

David Gershon of the Empowerment Institute will start us off in Part 1 and return in Part 2 to offer his training in social capacities, moving us from unitive consciousness to social actualization. Over the full six months, we will practice this in our small group work, which will foster evolutionary communion and effective action among us.

The small group work will begin to stabilize and deepen our practice of being our Essential Selves, and then we will move into our vocations to find partners and join with each other in the 12 Spheres of Life – the sectors of society represented in Barbara’s Wheel of Cocreation.. We will also develop skills and capacities to build conscious evolutionary circles as communicators and leaders during the next era.

PART 2 of the Intensive will, for the first time, begin the description of the Self-Actualizing Society and the Social Potential Movement. In the 1960’s, the Human Potential Movement was vitally inspired by Abraham Maslow’s first description of human wellness, joyful, happy, beneficent people. He mapped the Self-Actualizing Person. Now, in the new era of evolution, we will build upon the human potential movement to map the peaks of the Social Potential Movement in every field and function, leading us toward the Self-Actualizing Society

Embodying Generation One means becoming Self-Actualizing persons who are creating the Self Actualizing Society.

You are invited with heartfelt excitement to join Barbara and a team of evolutionary pioneers to found Generation One as a pioneer of conscious evolution! What an opportunity we have been given.

The Generation One Training Bonus Collection

The Sacred Communion Series:
Exploring the Frontiers of Personal Awakening
and the Planetary Shift

With Stephen Dinan and Barbara Marx Hubbard

In this monthly Thursday call – just for Generation One participants – we will enter into the mystery of creation together, with Stephen Dinan and Barbara Marx Hubbard pioneering the path through a cocreative sharing of their deepest knowing and exploring into the unknown together. Stephen will take off his CEO hat, open his mystic heart and tap his inner guidance to reveal what he knows about the evolutionary shift, the activation of the Christ, the deep karmic and energetic shifts required in our society, and the emergence of a new human template.

He’ll share his intimate inner guidance and wisdom in communion with Barbara, who will join with him in an exploration of our personal and collective awakening that goes beyond the mind, beyond known paradigms, into wholly new terrain that integrates our local selves with our divine selves and births a new reality. This will not be a didactic class but a sacred communion of pioneering souls, as the two co-creators of Birth 2012 explore their leading edge and then invite you to do the same together with them and in breakout groups. Barbara often describes this as “entering the Inner Monastery” together and Stephen calls this the creation of “Temple Time.” The result is a field of possibility that aligns us with our deepest Self and allows the Divine to manifest through us.

About Barbara and Co-Faculty

Barbara Marx Hubbard is co-founder and chairperson of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. An evolutionary educator, speaker and social innovator, she is the author of six books communicating the new worldview of conscious evolution, including the bestselling Birth 2012 and Beyond.

In 1945, when she was 15 years old, the first atomic bombs were dropped on Japan. This terrible act prompted Barbara to ask the fundamental question: “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.

As a co-founder of The Evolutionary Leaders Council she is co-chairing with Andrew Cohen a global dialogue on The Meaning of Conscious Evolution. Barbara is also the subject of a recent biography by Neale Donald Walsch entitled: The Mother of Invention: The Legacy of Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Future of You.

Katharine Roske is the Co-Founder and Community Steward of the Hummingbird Community. A long held vision came into reality for her in 1996 when a core group within Global Family founded the Hummingbird Community. The manifestation of this dream has provided the playground for her to deepen in her life purpose of co-creating a planetary culture that is a living embodiment of our spiritual essence. She plays a central role at the core of the community as a steward, social architect, global ambassador, ceremonialist, and active contributor to the newly developed Hummingbird Center for a Co-Creative World and is currently co-teaching the tele-course, “Living Co-Creation.” Katharine is co-author with Carolyn Anderson of The Co-Creator's Handbook: an Experiential Guide for Discovering your Life's Purpose and Building a Co-Creative Society. This has been a foundational guidebook in the formation of Hummingbird Community and is used throughout the world by pioneers who are collectively birthing a new world.

Together with her beloved husband, Makasha, she has lived deeply into the inquiry: “As our collective consciousness evolves, what are the forms and structures that embody the values and ideals we hold sacred?” During the past four decades Makasha and Katharine have lived their lives at the evolutionary edge in exploration of this inquiry: pioneering conscious birthing practices; stewarding integral educational models; dreaming in and facilitating numerous international events and link-ups for peace; modeling progressive business concepts in a variety of entrepreneurial ventures; consulting groups and communities around the world; establishing networking convergence centers and cultivating intentional community in both urban and rural settings.

Sister Helen Prejean has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on the death penalty and helping to shape the Catholic Church’s newly vigorous opposition to state executions. She travels around the world giving talks about her ministry. She considers herself a southern storyteller.

Sister Helen is a member of the Congregation of St. Joseph. She spent her first years with the Sisters teaching religion to junior high school students. Realizing that being on the side of poor people is an essential part of the Gospel she moved into the St. Thomas Housing Project in New Orleans and began working at Hope House from 1981 – 1984.

During this time, she was asked to correspond with a death row inmate Patrick Sonnier at Angola. She agreed and became his spiritual adviser. After witnessing his execution, she wrote a book about the experience. The result was Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States. It became a movie, an opera and a play for high schools and colleges.

Since 1984, Sister Helen has divided her time between educating citizens about the death penalty and counseling individual death row prisoners. She has accompanied six men to their deaths. In doing so, she began to suspect that some of those executed were not guilty. This realization inspired her second book, The Death of Innocents: An Eyewitness Account of Wrongful Executions, which was released by Random House in December of 2004.

Sr. Helen is presently at work on another book – RIVER OF FIRE: MY SPIRITUAL JOURNEY.

Bruce H. Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences.

Dr. Lipton began his scientific career as a cell biologist. He received his Ph.D. Degree from the University of Virginia at Charlottesville before joining the Department of Anatomy at the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine in 1973. Dr. Lipton’s research on muscular dystrophy, studies employing cloned human stem cells, focused upon the molecular mechanisms controlling cell behavior.

In 1982, Dr. Lipton began examining the principles of quantum physics and how they might be integrated into his understanding of the cell’s information processing systems. He produced breakthrough studies on the cell membrane, which revealed that this outer layer of the cell was an organic homologue of a computer chip, the cell’s equivalent of a brain. His research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating though the membrane, controlled the behavior and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged one of today’s most important fields of study, the science of epigenetics.

Dr. Lipton’s novel scientific approach transformed his personal life as well. His deepened understanding of cell biology highlighted the mechanisms by which the mind controls bodily functions, and implied the existence of an immortal spirit. He applied this science to his personal biology, and discovered that his physical well-being improved, and the quality and character of his daily life was greatly enhanced. He has been heartened by anecdotal reports from hundreds of former audience members who have improved their spiritual, physical and mental well being by applying the principles he discusses in his lectures. He is regarded as one of the leading voices of the new biology.
