Barbara Marx Hubbard
with Co-creators: Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Riane Eisler
and 20+ other leading pioneers
Tuesday, September 16, 2014
Imagine being part of a conscious global community of like-minded souls who are passionately co-creating a new possibility for our planet under the guidance of top evolutionary leaders and visionaries.
Now, you can learn how to better activate the next phase of your evolution and contribute your unique gifts to a global, heart-centered movement that is co-creating a healthy, sustainable, peaceful and prosperous world for all.
We stand at the threshold of a great possibility for both ourselves and our planet.
It’s a time of incredible challenge and opportunity – a time that many indigenous traditions across the globe have foretold as the completion of a great cycle and the dawn of a new era of promise and potential for humanity.
The suffering born of the old ways is immense, leading to broken families, fractured communities, war, degradation, oppression, addictions and more. Your heart probably aches when you see the news and feel just how much fear and pain stifle the potential of our world.
And yet, we are on the cusp of creating something profound and beautiful: a new era of peace.
If you are reading this message, you are likely feeling the inner call to seize this rare opportunity and actively participate in this great planetary transformation.
And to do so, you need to go beyond the competitive and world-destroying models of the past to become what we call a “Co-creator.”
The Co-creator is emerging at this critical moment in history as we birth a more mature, evolved human expression on a wider scale. We are literally growing into a new human possibility, which means the root patterns of how we live, think and move are going through a new evolution.
Beloved planetary elder Barbara Marx Hubbard offers a compelling vision that the Co-creator archetype is at the heart of this next evolution of humanity – and as we embrace it, much of the stress, isolation and fear of the last era dissipates, and we can grow into our full self-expression in far-reaching ways.
That’s because the Co-creator relinquishes the need to have power over others and celebrates the emergence of authentic partnership. The Co-creator engages in “supra-sex” by joining their unique genius with others to design the communities and organizations that can birth a new culture.
Feminine Co-creators and Masculine Co-creators are creating healthier families, organizations and movement, in which our individual genius is multiplied by co-creative intelligence.
A Co-creator is one who is able to tune into the process of creation within. Whether we call it God, Spirit, Source, Consciousness or Creative Love, it is the multi-billion-year “process of creation” that has carried us from the origin of the universe to the present.
This process of creation is becoming conscious in us as are own impulses to love more, to do more, to be more, and to realize our full potential selves. This mysterious God-force is pulsing within us, signaling, intensifying and motivating us to realize our full-potential selves.
It is awakening us to a new vision of ourselves as a co-creative universal humanity born within a universe of billions of other planets, some of which may also be capable of giving birth to new life forms and new worlds.
At the practical level, the Co-creator goes beyond dominating modes of human engagement to create fields of loving resonance that allow for deeper relationships, harmonious communities and synergistic solutions to our collective challenges. In this way, a Co-creator becomes an architect of a new society that is based on principles of sustainability, creativity, love and opportunity.
If you can no longer settle for a life of soul-deadening isolation – and are instead compelled to bring forth the best of who you are, and contribute your unique gifts for the betterment of our world – then we would be delighted for you to collaborate with others who are doing the same to midwife this inspiring possibility into being.
As a wise Hopi Elder said: “You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour... We are the ones we have been waiting for.”
We are the generation that is responsible for bringing about this radical global shift – and the deep skills of co-creation are essential to translate this empowering vision into a reality.
Become a Powerful Catalyst for Change
Which brings us to YOU. Are YOU one of those rare individuals inspired to upgrade your outdated “software,” and bring this emerging level of consciousness into our world?
Are you ready to “reboot” the dysfunctional programming on planet Earth and “encode” a more holistic, compassionate and sacred vision that serves all of life?
Are you open to “connect” with the evolutionary intelligence of the cosmos and “download” what IS truly possible within yourself and our world, rather than focus excessively on the problems and lament about what no longer works?
If so, we want you to join us for the extraordinary 12-week Co-Creators Rising course with one of today’s greatest and most empowering teachers and visionaries, Barbara Marx Hubbard – the woman Deepak Chopra calls “THE voice for conscious evolution in our times.”
She is bringing together many of the most celebrated luminaries of our day to share their wisdom alongside hers about how we literally birth the Co-creator archetype in ourselves, our communities and our world.
The Co-Creators Rising course emerges from decades of Barbara’s life’s work and deepest passion. She has spent more than 50 years doing in-depth research and practice to unlock the mysteries of the human potential and bring about the birth of what she calls the “Universal Human” – an awakened, heart-centered being that lives in harmony with itself, the Earth and all of life.
In this transformational course, Barbara Marx Hubbard offers you the very best of her insights, evolutionary tools, teachings and practices to activate your full creative potential. Along with her remarkable guest presenters, Barbara will share the path she has journeyed to help catalyze a shift into true co-creation within yourself, your family and your community.
Over the course of 12 weeks, you will be connected to a global movement of empowered evolutionary leaders who are lighting the way forward.
Barbara Marx Hubbard is called a “planetary treasure” by Jack Canfield. At 84, she is having an ever-wider impact on the world through her inspiring insights, teachings and co-creative partnerships.
Co-Creators Rising is sure to inspire and motivate you to join in joyful co-creation with other like minds and hearts, while also providing you with clear guidance to manifest your soul’s purpose in life.
This Truly is the Hour for Which We Were Born
Letter from the Desk of Barbara Marx Hubbard
Dear Fellow Evolutionary,
I am delighted to share with you my seminal new course that reveals, cultivates and guides us to embody within ourselves the new human as “Homo Co-creator,” one who is attuned to Spirit within, and motivated to fulfill our life purpose through modeling the new culture – the Co-creative Society, the next stage of human evolution.
We are a very young “universal species.” We have just been “born” in the next era of evolution. “Birth 2012” was a signal that the shift is underway. It was obvious to millions of us that we could not continue growing in the womb of Earth.
A limit to one form of consciousness and activity has been reached. Even one more generation of polluting, warring, climate change, species destruction could lead to devolution and massive destruction of our life support system....losing our opportunity to fulfill the promise of humanity, since only a few would be able to survive and flourish.
There is, however, an extraordinary alternative – a new way to evolve consciously and to:
- Restore the Earth
- Free ourselves from poverty, hunger, disease and war
- Explore the potential of ourselves as universal humans, Co-creators of our world, on this Earth – and eventually, in the universe beyond
What is vitally needed now to realize these possibilities is to form a Global Community and a Communion of Pioneering Souls who are already transforming themselves and the world in every field, function and culture of society.
This precious community, when connected to skillfully co-create, is the hope of the world.
Together we can divine the design of evolution and discover a new pattern for the Co-creative Society.
My faith is that there are already enough of us to shift consciousness on Earth when we are in resonance and co-creativity with one another.
This course is a vital element in the work to connect Pioneering Souls of Earth.
As a participant in Co-Creator Rising, you are entering the greatest movement for life this world has ever known.
I warmly invite you to join me in this extraordinary adventure!
Co-Creators Rising will help you make the best use of this precious time and hone your unique gifts as an empowered catalyst of evolution, healing and hope.
As you blossom as a Feminine or Masculine Co-creator, you:
- Liberate more of your soul’s unique genius
- Find collaborators to co-create with in dynamic and exciting ways
- Move beyond hierarchies of control into networks of collaboration
- Drop the conditioning that leads you to seek security and comfort, and instead discover the joy of aligning with the impulse of evolution
- Recognize the signs of the new archetype emerging – and also bless, honor and release your old conditioning that prevents its emergence
- Experience the potential for “regenopause” as Feminine Co-creators enter a new phase of life beyond co-creation
- Learn how Masculine Co-creators can retain their masculine strength while opening to the feminine aspect of their being
- Engage in co-creative pods that practice this new way of being as well as co-creative families of choice that anchor it into your life
- Powerfully reframe “aging” as “emerging” – with each passing year giving more of your soul’s true gifts
What You’ll Learn in these 12 Weeks
Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
In this 12-week transformational intensive, Barbara will guide you through the fundamental spiritual, social and relational skills and competencies that you need to actualize your potential as Feminine and Masculine Co-creators. She will show you how we can join our collective genius to birth a new era of conscious evolution.
Each contemplation and presentation will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the principles you’ll need to sustain your co-creative skills in “real life.”
Every class will feature breakthrough Co-creators sharing intimately about their own path, challenges and victories, taking us through major themes of the co-creative world through dialogue with participants.
This course manifests vital elements of a Whole System Shift. Co-creative coaching and mentoring will also be offered, with an invitation to continue the work outside the course:
- Carolyn Anderson will offer experiences in “Incarnating your Universal Self,” which will elicit the highest frequencies of your being through the “52 Codes for Conscious Self Evolution.”
- Katharine Roske and Carolyn Anderson, co-authors of The Co-Creator’s Handbook and co-founders of Hummingbird Community, will offer practical guidance for stabilizing as a Co-creator and forming your own co-creative core group. They will support you in deepening your soul’s calling and doing your part to birth a co-creative culture.
- Bonnie Kelly will facilitate small group practice sessions.
With our brilliant colleagues, bonus calls and deep meditations, mentoring and coaching, we will all take the next step in becoming Co-creators in our own lives.
Module 1: The New Era of Co-Creation
(September 16) Special Guest Riane Eisler
In this module, we will explore the historical shift from small tribes through the advent of warrior gods and dominator culture to the rise of global environmental and social problems, ending now in the breakdown of modern civilization and the advent of the shift to the co-creative culture.
Drawing from pioneer Co-creator Riane Eisler, we will set the scene for this cultural transformation from domination to co-creation and begin to understand the development of the co-creative culture and its earliest pioneers, among them Jesus, Buddha, Teilhard de Chardin, Sri Aurobindo, the Mother, Buckminster Fuller, the Dalai Lama, Jean Houston and Peter Russell. We’ll also lay the foundations for individual and group work over the 12 weeks.
In this first module, you will:
- Understand the natural evolutionary progression leading to the role of the Co-creator
- See how the old dominator pattern still lives in you and the way you relate with others, despite your best intentions
- Embark on a journey of shifting to the new co-creative ways of being and relating through journaling, Emergence practices and application of “52 Codes for Conscious Evolution”
- Form small resonant groups to share our experience and stabilize the shift occurring within and among us
- Enter into large group discussions to foster a co-creative community among ourselves – learning resonance, speaking from within, sharing with each other the inner experience of self evolution as co-creators
- Gain skills to reinforce an inner awareness so that we can discern when we’re acting as Co-creators and when we’re not
Riane Eisler, JD is President of the Center for Partnership Studies and internationally known as a systems scientist, attorney working for the human rights of women and children, and author of groundbreaking books such as The Chalice and the Blade: Our History, Our Future, now in 26 foreign editions, and The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics.

She lectures worldwide, with venues including the United Nations General Assembly, the U.S. Department of State, Congressional briefings, universities, corporations, conference keynotes, and events hosted by heads of State.
Module 2: Exploring the Nature of the Feminine Co-Creator
(September 23) Special Guest Joanne Brem
In this second module, Joanne Brem – a leading evolutionary coach, pioneer in resonance and explorer of higher dimensions of universal life – will join us. We’ll learn the fundamental experiences, practices and qualities of being of the Feminine Co-creator.
What is this new archetype and what’s different about women now, at the threshold of either devolution or conscious evolution? We’ll explore the evolutionary progression from Feminism to Feminine Empowerment to the Feminine Co-creator. Barbara will share intimately about her own evolution into the new archetype over the course of her life.
With Joanne and Barbara’s guidance, you will come to:
- Understand the deeper gifts and blessings of the Feminine Co-Creator
- Recognize typical challenges and pitfalls
- Apply co-creative principles with children, partners and love relationships
- Engage the process of co-creative resonance in pairs and small groups
- Learn how language shapes your experience of resonance

As a facilitator of team processes, she effectively both creates and sustains the field of collective resonance, intention and focus needed for true co-creation to take place and the highest outcomes to be achieved. She brings her fascination and curiosity regarding the laws of how manifestation in this dimension actually occurs to her coaching, where she effectively assist her clients to “get things done” and achieve the highest results, both of utmost importance in the corporate environments within which she works.
Module 3: Entering “Regenopause”
“Regenopause” is a remarkable new phenomenon among women that signifies a re-engagement with life that often results in women feeling more energized, on purpose and excited to contribute, even as they enter traditional years of retirement. Regenopause doesn’t just happen. It’s a state of being that is consciously cultivated and has profound effects on your life, health, creativity and experience.
Women literally become ever-evolving Co-creators, undergoing the regenerative process similar to the caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.
In this module, you’ll:
- Recognize the signs of Regenopause in yourself and others
- Cultivate practices that reconnect you with your life force and untapped creativity
- Shift from a career focus to “vocational arousal,” leading to more sustained passion for your real work
- Understand the nature of “Suprasex,” and how to cultivate it with evolutionary partners
- Learn how this state connects to spiritual lore around the Risen Body, the Rainbow Box, the Celestial Body, and more
- Come to appreciate that no matter how old you are, your best contributions can still be ahead of you
- Explore the new myth of the sacred marriage of the New Adam and New Eve at the Tree of Life
- Begin to see and experience death as an evolutionary innovation
- Open to the possibility of co-creating radically new bodies and lives as we emerge as a cosmic species
- Learn key practices to cultivate Regenopause by supporting bodily transformation toward regeneration and awaken higher faculties of creativity and spiritual awareness
Module 4: The Rise of Suprasex:
The Shift from Maximum Procreation to Co-Creation
(October 7) Special Guest Devaa Haley Mitchell
In this module, we’ll explore the remarkable opportunity to move from self-preservation through self-reproduction to self-evolution and Suprasex. This shift represents not only an expansion beyond sex, it opens the portal to feminine spirituality and higher evolutionary potential.
As we live longer lives and have fewer children, our sexual drive yields to a suprasexual drive. In Suprasex, we access our co-creative genius to give birth to our greater selves and our work in the world. Over time, the drive for greater self-expression among Co-creators may become as powerful as the drive for sexual reproduction.
In this module, you’ll
- Learn how Feminine Co-creators activate a “hormonal reserve” that awakens a passion to create – as great or greater than the passion to procreate
- Expand your capacity for unconditional love for the unknown world, no matter how painful or difficult it may be to see its goodness
- Experience the core of Vocational Arousal and understand how to attract those who most need what you yearn to give
- Avoid the dangers of suprasexual promiscuity, where the natural impulse to co-create can lead to over-promising, over-excitement and failure to complete projects
- Learn to awaken your new hormonal reserves to enhance your health, creativity, beauty, service and joy
- Develop practices for cultivating your hormonal reserve through meditation, Suprasex and resonance among two or more
- Receive journal writings from Barbara’s unpublished journals on the discovery and practice of suprasexual co-creativity

Module 5: Shifting from the Story of Separation to the Story of Interbeing
Special Guests Charles Eisenstein and Adam Hall
In this module, we will join renowned author of The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible, Charles Eisenstein, and Adam Hall, author of The Earth Keepers, as we learn to shift from the dominator to the partnership model. Focusing on challenges and methods that work in our lives now, Charles will share fundamental insights: The Story of Interbeing, the Age of Reunion, the ecological age, and the world of the gift. Adam Hall will share his extraordinary shift from an “Earth Conqueror” to a preservationist, uncovering the creative power of the universe. In dialogue with Charles and Adam, we will seek the best means of applying these principles in our own lives.
You will learn the key principles of Interbeing from Charles’ work, including:
- My being partakes of your being and that of all beings. Because our very existence is relational, what we do to another, we do to ourselves
- Each of us has a unique and necessary gift to give to the world, and the purpose of life is to express our gifts
- Every act is significant and has an effect on the cosmos
- Fundamentally we are inseparable from all beings and the universe
- Every person we encounter and every experience that we have mirrors something in ourselves
- Humanity is meant to join fully with the tribe of all life on Earth, offering our uniquely human gifts toward the well-being and development of the whole
- Purpose, consciousness, and intelligence are innate properties of matter and the universe.

Module 6: Developing New Relationships Among Masculine and Feminine Co-Creators
(October 21) Special Guests Glenn and Marian Head
One of the great challenges – and beautiful opportunities! – of our day, is for women and men to join together in full co-creative partnerships. After millennia of imbalance, the old patterns are ingrained deeply in us and our culture. In this important module, we’ll learn how to lay the foundations for a new kind of relationship between the genders as well as navigate the many challenges that arise.

Module 7: The Masculine Co-Creator
(October 28) Special Guests Steven Starr
and Don Hudson
In this module, we focus on Masculine Co-creators and how men are transitioning from the dominator culture into experiencing the joys of co-creation. Guest Steven Starr will illumine his own shift, born of his recognition of the limiting beliefs associated with the winner-take-all personality and creator-as-God model. He’ll share his profound insights about the "sourcing" magic that co-creativity and collaboration allows. Coming from a background of traditional media and technology, as the head of the film division of William Morris, his heart told him there was another way, and he began his search for something more authentic and less opportunistic. We will also learn from Don Hudson, who will enter into dialogue with Steven and participants to share core insights about embracing the Masculine Co-creator.
In this module, you’ll:
- See how masculine strength can be sourced from a deep love and appreciation of essence
- How women can engage men with unconditional love to call them into their Co-creator self
- Receive key principles for empowering the Masculine Co-creator
- Understand how the creation of structure and form is one of the distinctive masculine blessings and how to encourage it

After helping to restore community and financial controls, he started ChangeTv, a user-generated digital cable network designed to filter online video onto cable and reward creators, advised by John Perry Barlow and Amnesty International’s Jack Healy.
Module 8: The Conscious Cultivation of Andropause
Special Guest John Perkins
Neale Donald Walsch coined the term “Andropause” to explore the masculine version of Regenopause. In this module, we will explore the experience of a Masculine Co-creator during the mid-life shift from dominator to co-creator model. In mid-life, our guest John Perkins, author of The Economic Hit Man, became a founder of Pachamama Alliance and a world-renowned evolutionary shaman. John will describe in vivid poetic terms what happened to give him the courage, the insights and the vision to take a risk to his own well-being and deny the very culture that was supporting him – so that he could give his life to being the new culture.
He’ll put a special emphasis on his relationship with indigenous peoples and their wisdom, which is so vital to the survival and evolution of the world.
In this module, you’ll:
- Understand how this shift can occur and begin to cultivate it

Module 12: “Camp Eve”: Live from the Uplift Festival
Special Guest Bharat Mitra, Founder of Organic India
We know that at Camp David, White House visitors go to solve particularly challenging problems that cannot be solved in the context that is causing them. Camp Eve is the next step after Camp David. It is a place where leaders of the emerging world gather, to support each other, to create friendships and greater resonance, to divine the design of social evolution, to map these designs in the Wheel of Co-creation, and to communicate them to the world. This is a way for people to become more co-creative throughout their lives
This idea came to Barbara after her vice presidential campaign, in which her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States on the Democratic ticket in 1984. Camp Eve will be inaugurated at the Uplift Festival (Byron Bay, Australia), where co-creators will be invited to share their views on how to evolve our world and us. Bharat Mitra is a very enlightened CEO and visionary who founded Uplift and will engage Barbara in a powerful dialogue about how we can organically grow new centers and hubs for co-creative communities around the world.
In this module, you’ll:
- Receive inspiration from the global luminaries gathered at Uplift
- Understand how to create resonant fields that naturally attract others to participate
- Mix enjoyment and real problem-solving to come up with innovative solutions to challenging issues
- Lay the foundations for deeply fulfilling community in your own community
Bharat Mitra is the founder of ORGANIC INDIA, a recognized global leader in consciousness, business and sustainability. As a spiritual entrepreneur, his focus is on creating a new paradigm of business in service of humanity and the planet. He was inspired by his master, Sri H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji), in India, whom he met in 1991. He then founded ORGANIC INDIA as "A Vehicle of Consciousness", a company with no separation between spirituality and business, whose mission is to be an embodiment of Oneness in action. Bharat is president of The Bet Lev Foundation (USA), a Director of The StarFire Fund (USA), Founder of Insight Intensive, Gold Lake (USA), Chairman of The Lev Group (Israel) and Visionary Founder of UPLIFT.
The Co-Creators Rising Bonus Collection
In addition to Barbara’s transformative 12-week virtual course, you’ll also receive these powerful training sessions with the world’s leading visionaries and teachers. These bonus sessions are being offered to further complement what you’ll learn in the course – and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
The Science of Anti-Aging
Audio Dialogue with Deepak Chopra
In this bonus session, Barbara is joined by global leader and pioneer in the field of mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra, for a deep dialogue on the scientific basis of life extension and new means of anti-aging, greater health, happiness and longevity. They will also explore how, beyond scientific knowledge, consciousness creates everything – and what that means for you!

He is also a Distinguished Executive Scholar at Columbia Business School, Columbia University, and a Senior Scientist at the Gallup organization.
The Shared Contact with Higher Intelligence Dialogue Series
A remarkable number of luminaries share Barbara Marx Hubbard’s intuition that by creating fields of deep, co-creative resonance in groups, we can begin to open up access to higher dimensions of consciousness, including spirit guides, the deceased, angelic orders – and even beings from other planets. While this thesis is provocative, it is supported by the experience of many pioneers who have directly experienced such contact and who recognize the profound implications for humanity, if we can open this doorway to higher levels of communication and gain access to wisdom for navigating our current crises.
In this series of dialogues with some of today’s foremost thinkers, Barbara and her guests will go far beyond the usual “public” discourse to intimate personal experiences and intuitions about the implications of this contact for our world. Guests will include:
Neale Donald Walsch is a modern-day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning, before beginning his now famous “conversation with God.” His With God series of books has been translated into 27 languages, touching millions of lives and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.
Nassim Haramein was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1962.

I find myself marveling at Barbara’s capacity to be both authentically living from her Essence, while also allowing her most vulnerable human self to be present. She is a great model of inspiration for what it means to live with passion and enthusiasm, at any age. Just being in her presence (her laugh!) consistently fills me with joy. And WOW, her guests include leading edge evolutionists that share relevant wayshower skills, but more importantly, ignite powerful ripple effects through the participants to co-create a hopeful, collaborative, sustainable future. – Celeste Hamman, Austin, TX

Life transforming!
– Anna Herremans, Panama City, Panama
Through the past months with Barbara, her luminary guests and my evolutionary circle I have come into a much deeper knowing of my own soul calling...I clearly know that the time spent in communion with her and others has brought distinctions for me as to what my next steps will be along my path and has inspired me to move forward and declare who I am in my fullest expression.
– Gaye Abbott, Austin, TX
Barbara has guided me to look for what is good.. to accept that the old paradigm is crumbling and to let it be.. and to focus our attention on what is working ... and now eventually becoming innovative, exploring new ways of being and thinking that support a precious new paradigm that we the people are co-creating together... and it feels good.. People used to talk about how we are all one and I didn’t really get it... I get it now.. From an evolutionary perspective we are now REALLY recognising ourselves as a whole organism with an evolving consciousness ...we have the power to direct our future ....and that is exciting... If you would like to more deeply connect with your passion, your vocational arousal...feel more empowered... and contribute to co-creating a world that is compassionate, caring, just, loving creative and sustainable, then get involved... you will be pleased you did!
