Enjoy this powerful conversation between three evolutionary geniuses Barbara Marx Hubbard, Marc Gafni & Daniel Schmachtenberger. It provides a brief peek into the forthcoming Video Course “Becoming the New Human.”

This is the group discussion after a Module on Becoming Fully Human with Daniel Schmachtenberger.

In this lesson you will learn:

  • how human history can be traced through the lens of different approaches to reconciling the split between autonomy and communion

  • how Unique Self is the place where the split between autonomy and communion disappears and why we must optimize for both instead of choosing one over the other
  • how technology can address the neural net membrane and connectivity of the human imaginal cells around the world

  • why both Liberals and Fundamentalists don’t practice tantra very well

  • how certainty and uncertainty can be reconciled and how Barbara practices that in meditation

  • this course is a post-Liberal and post-Fundamentalist course, emergent by nature, which takes the best of both and integrates everything in a higher way

Listen to the audio and read the summary below.

Barbara begins by saying that Daniel’s lesson felt like a self-portrait of a Future Human to her.  Having considered Daniel an evolutionary son for a long time now, Barbara feels proud seeing his ability to respond to the complexity of the current global situation with such grace, charm, and even pleasure.  Marc reminds us of the importance of embodying the teachings; this is the place in history where there can’t be a split.  We must become the teachings, as each of these teachers illustrates so beautifully.

Many subjects are covered in this conversation, from reconciling autonomy and communion, and certainty and uncertainty, to using technology to address the next level of connectivity between human imaginal cells around the world.  Marc brings up the concept of “tantra,” or the principle of non-rejection, where nothing is left out and everything has a place at the table in a higher level of consciousness. They note that this recurring theme of embracing elements of humanity that have been rejected and integrating them has been even more prominent in the course than they had even realized before they sat down together.


Write down your 5 core certainties that you live your life by and write down your 5 uncertainties and rejoice in them.

The full course is a call to action to play your full role in the birth of a new humanity. It asks the question:

Who do we need to become in order for humanity to make it through its current dangerous technological adolescence and to create a world that is truly commensurate with our full human, scientific, social, spiritual, and technological capabilities?
