Back By Popular Demand: Discover How You Can Make the Sacred Shift from Ego to Your Essential Self to Co-Create a Life and World Aligned with Your Spiritual Purpose
Never before in this pivotal moment in history – where we face societal breakdowns and breakthroughs on a grand scale – has it been more important to elevate our consciousness and develop a co-creative partnership with our Essential Self.
According to Barbara Marx Hubbard and Patricia Ellsberg, the Essential Self is the highest part of you that emanates the divine qualities of love, wisdom, wholeness and freedom. It’s your unique personal expression, freed from fear and limitation, a sacred offering to the whole of creation.
When you learn to shift your identity from that of the egoic “local self” to the magnificence of your “non-local” Essential Self and then beyond to your Universal Self, the highest frequency of your being, you become fully available to BE the change and become an activation point and catalyst for conscious evolution.
Through the 8-week Emergence Process, you will learn to live from your true essence, release the drama of life’s daily struggles and liberate your gifts of healing and transformation – at a time when the world needs YOUR full participation.
This powerful step-by-step course, with Patricia Ellsberg and Barbara Marx Hubbard, will give you the tools and teachings you need to successfully navigate this time of global transformation and consciously participate in the healing and awakening of our world.
This course is especially timely as together we nurture the emergence of a new era.
Through the expert guidance of Patricia Ellsberg, world-renowned social change activist, transformational teacher, one of the foremost teachers of the Emergence Process AND Barbara Marx Hubbard’s sister, plus Barbara’s inspired teachings, you will learn to access your divine essence and live with grace, confidence, creativity, purpose and joy.
This transformative training will empower you to BECOME your Essential Self – the wise, loving, compassionate, powerful and radiant part of you.
You will move from fear into love and creative action, and be prepared to help catalyze this wave of planetary change.
Due to the extremely positive response to the Emergence Process and its relevance at this historic turning point, we are delighted to offer this course again as this process is a vital core teaching for anyone who wants to make their highest contribution to the Planetary Birth.
Patricia and Barbara have devoted their lives to personal evolution in service to societal transformation through Conscious Evolution. Their shared wisdom and history together growing up in the same family, as well as their deep love for one another, make this course a truly one-of-a-kind offering.

Patricia Ellsberg is a social change activist, meditation and transformational teacher, certified Dream Coach and public speaker. Recently she has taught The Emergence Process four times with her sister, Barbara Marx Hubbard on the Shift Network.
In 1971, she helped her husband, Daniel Ellsberg, release to the press the Pentagon Papers, a top secret history of US involvement in Vietnam, which helped end the Vietnam War. The Oscar nominated documentary, "The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers," tells the riveting story of this era and Daniel and Patricia’s role in changing history.
A central theme of her life has been bridging spiritual experience with societal transformation. Working closely with her sister, Barbara Marx Hubbard, in furthering social transformation through Conscious Evolution, Patricia guides people to make a shift from ego to essence, so they live with greater joy, purpose and meaning.
Patricia’s special gift as a coach is transmitting and helping people access a profound sense of joy and wellbeing through the artful use of heart-centered guided meditation. In addition to teaching the Emergence Process, she coaches individuals as a certified Dream Coach and leads groups and teleseminars on the theme of “Finding Mother-Love Within.”
Barbara Marx Hubbard is co-founder and chairperson of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution. An evolutionary educator, speaker and social innovator, she is the author of six books communicating the new worldview of conscious evolution.
As a co-founder of The Evolutionary Leaders Council she is co-chairing with Andrew Cohen a global dialogue on The Meaning of Conscious Evolution. Barbara is also the subject of a recent biography by Neale Donald Walsch entitled: The Mother of Invention: The Legacy of Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Future of You.
In 1984 her name was placed in nomination for the vice presidency of the United States on the Democratic ticket, calling for a "Peace Room" as sophisticated as our war room, to scan for, map, connect and communicate what is working in America and the world.
As a citizen diplomat in the former Soviet Union during the 1980’s she co-chaired a number of Soviet-American Citizen Summits, introducing a new form of conferencing called SYNCON to foster synergistic convergence. This model brings opposing groups and functions together to seek common goals and match needs and resources including the growing edge of human capacities, spiritual, social and scientific/technological of the whole system.
