Birthing a New Era


On Dec. 22, 2012, millions of people around the world are expected to take part in a rite of passage marking the end of a 26,000-year cycle reflected in the prophecies and calendars of many spiritual and Indigenous traditions. They will celebrate the birth of a new era for humanity—“day one” of a planetary shift into a solution-oriented sustainable future. They believe that this event will lead to innovative social and technological efforts in 2013 focused on positive change.

Author Barbara Marx Hubbard and many other well-known futurists have been engaging people in the movement. Says Hubbard, “We will either move toward a more sustainable, compassionate and creative global system, or we face the real possibility of devolution and destruction of our life-support system and much of life on Earth—within our children’s lifetime. This dangerous reality is motivating us to enter into what I call the first age of conscious evolution—that is, evolution by choice and not by chance. It is a great wake-up call for the maturation of humanity.” Hubbard’s new book, Birth2012 and Beyond, explains the vision in detail. Learn more at
