Occupy Movement | Barbara Marx Hubbard | Occupy Love

“There’s a love emerging now that’s coming from our creativity, that’s yearning for joining, because it can’t fulfil itself alone. When it finds others, it starts to fall in love, but it’s a love at the next level of creativity. It’s excitement. It’s vocational arousal. I see that the planet is going to be evolved by a massive uprising of creativity joined.”


Barbara Marx Hubbard is an author, evolutionary thinker, public speaker, educator and social innovator whose extensive body of work illustrates her belief that humanity is equipped to evolve and create its future in a conscious and wondrous way. Co-founder and chairperson of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution, she has written five books, including Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential; Emergence: The Shift from Ego to Essence; The Evolutionary Journey: Your Guide to a Positive Future; and Revelation: A Message of Hope for the New Millennium. Deepak Chopra refers to her as “the voice for conscious evolution of our time.”

Born in 1929 into a financially comfortable family, Hubbard was free to ponder deeply at an early age. She began questioning the purpose of humanity’s power as a teenager following the events of Hiroshima. Constantly seeking to fulfill her own purpose, devouring books and ideas all the while raising five children, she developed a vocation for transmitting to all of humanity the story of its evolution and creative potential.

In 1984 she presented herself for the Vice Presidency of the United States, proposing a “Peace Room” to scout, map and share signs of innovation, peace and progress throughout America and the world. She was one of the original directors of the Center for Soviet American Dialogue and served as a citizen diplomat during the late 1980’s.

Hubbard presented a 14-part television series entitled Potentials; she was featured in the 2006 film Entheogen: Awakening the Divine Within, and in the 2011 film Thrive. She produced and narrated the documentary series Humanity Ascending: A New Way through Together, and partnered with The Shift Network as a global ambassador for the conscious evolution movement.

She has co-launched the Agents of Conscious Evolution training and initiated Gateway to Conscious Evolution, a guided educational program. She is a founder and member of the Santa Barbara Conscious Evolution Community, and the initiator of the SYNCON Process, for synergistic convergence to overcome polarization in the United States. She is a member of the Evolutionary Leaders Group, of Global New Thought and of The World Future Society.

Hubbard was awarded the first Doctorate in Conscious Evolution by Emerson Institute, and is the subject of Neale Donald Walsch’s new book, “The Mother of Invention.”
