NOTE: Sunrise Ranch has been honored and grateful to host Barbara Marx Hubbard as a resident for two and a half years until her passing on April 10, 2019. We deeply mourn her sudden death and celebrate her vitality and extraordinary life.
Barbara Marx Hubbard has been called “the voice for conscious evolution” by Deepak Chopra. She is the subject of Neale Donald Walsch’s book The Mother of Invention. And many would agree she was the global ambassador for conscious change.
At her heart, Barbara Marx Hubbard was a visionary, a social innovator. She was an evolutionary thinker who believed that global change happens when we work collectively and selflessly for the greater good. She realized that the lessons of evolution teach us that problems are evolutionary drivers, and crises precede transformation, giving a new way of seeing and responding to our global situation.
As a prolific author and educator, Barbara wrote seven books on social and planetary evolution. She produced, hosted and contributed to countless documentaries seen by millions of people around the world. In conjunction with the Shift Network, Barbara co-produced the worldwide “Birth 2012” multimedia event that was seen as a historic turning point in exposing the social, spiritual, scientific and technological potential in humanity.
In 1984, her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States on the Democratic ticket. She called for a “Peace Room” to scan for, map, connect and communicate what is working in America and the world. She also co-chaired a number of Soviet-American Citizen Summits, introducing a new concept called “SYNCON” to foster synergistic convergence with opposing groups. In addition, she co-founded the World Future Society and the Association for Global New Thought.
