Scope and Content

Biography

Barbara Hubbard is a futurist scholar and, since 1992, the President and co-founder of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution, whose vision is "the awakening of the spiritual, social, and scientific potential of humanity, in harmony with nature for the highest good of all life." Hubbard holds degrees from Bryn Mawr College, the Sorbonne and L’Ecole des Sciences Politiques in Paris. In addition, she holds Emerson Theological Institute's first Doctor of Conscious Evolution degree. She was a nominee for Vice-President on the Democratic ticket in 1984 and has since advocated for a Peace Room in the White House. Her work in the futurist field began in the 1960's when she began a pioneering newsletter in evolutionary transformation entitled The Center Letter of the Center of American Living in New York. She writes to Merton from Lakeville, Connecticut. (Source: "About FCE’s Founder, Dr. Barbara Marx Hubbard".
