This guidebook is an essential tool for embodying and mastering the art of co-creation. It is designed to empower individuals and teams—from beginners to those at the leading edge of transformation—and contains specific tools and experiential exercises to assist you in discovering and fulfilling your life purpose as part of a co-creative team.
Emerging from the work of an early wave of social innovators, The Co-Creator’s Handbook 2.0 is a response to the need for a transformed society. This guidebook offers processes, tools, experiential exercises, and the understanding that is necessary to support individuals in expressing their heartfelt purpose and bringing forth the kind of world many dream is possible. Collectively we have the inherent genius, the boundless creativity, and the abundance of resources necessary to respond to the vast challenges of our times. The Handbook has become a basic reference for many who are seeking to become more deeply aware of their heartfelt purpose and to actualize it in groups with others.
I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that by learning how to consciously practice the circles of co-creation as presented in this book, we are making an immeasrable contribution to this quantum jump to the next state of human evolution – to ‘heaven on earth’.

About the Core Group Process
This process includes a series of co-creative practices and principles that were revealed to and developed by Barbara Marx Hubbard and Carolyn Anderson in the early 1980’s, during the former’s Campaign for a Positive Future. The essential elements of this process liberate human creativity, shift society from a hierarchical to a partnership model, offer a new structure for personal and group empowerment, and are an evolutionary leap in social organization. Core Groups come together around a shared purpose that actualizes the gifts of all members and contributes to the betterment of society, modeling love in action.
Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.
