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
Joanne Brem is a SF bay area based executive coach whose passion is to awaken consciousness and inspired visionary leadership in organizations globally, primarily in Fortune 1000 companies. She opens leaders to connect to their essential selves as the center from which they lead and helps them cultivate the awareness, skills and strategies to inspire optimal levels of engagement, creativity, collaboration and productivity in their teams and throughout the organizations within which they work. 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.
Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. He is the author of several books including The Ascent of Humanity, Sacred Economics, and The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible.

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

Module 8: The Conscious Cultivation of Andropause (November 4)
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
Explore ways that intimate relationship supports you in this phase change
Define and begin to practice your ideal relationship with the Feminine Co-creator

Module 12: “Camp Eve”: Live from the Uplift Festival (December 9)
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:
