Barbara Marx Hubbard "has put forth a more hopeful vision that centers on the year 2012. In this vision, she declares that the fears around a prophetic “end” date are actually a “birth” date – a symbolic marker of the movement into a new era of human evolution. Seen through this lens, we can celebrate what is already shifting toward sustainability, peace and innovative solutions in every field...
"The movement is envisioning a global Birth Day celebration on December 22, 2012 to cap a year of programs and initiatives that will help us make a positive evolutionary shift. Barbara has set this day as a “due date” — a vital evolutionary signal — for all of us to wake up, synergize among ourselves, celebrate what is working and ignite a new way of being.
"Many respected thought leaders have joined Barbara in this powerful vision. A Welcoming Committee of 12 leaders from different sectors will model how we can have cooperative, synergistic leadership of many movements in service to us all giving our greatest gifts to help make humanity Shift in time.
"Beginning and advanced Training courses such as The Agents of Conscious Evolution Training with Barbara Marx Hubbard offer opportunities to prepare you to take a proactive role into creating this new vision for humanity."
