Hubs are the basic social and spiritual unit that drive the Birth 2012 movement.
To become a hub, you need only declare that you will observe the planetary Birth Day on December 22, 2012, as explained just below.
Let’s say you’ve decided to host an event on that special day. If so, we invite you to list yourself as a hub right here. Now you’re an integral part of the Birth 2012 movement. It really is that simple!
The Single Requirement of a Hub
A hub need not meet regularly, or meet in person, or even have a leader. Again, you become a hub when you make one simple commitment: that you will honor the Birth event on the day it occurs—along with numerous other groups around the world!
In fact, any group of any kind (in person or online) may make such a declaration and join the Birth 2012 movement.
Our goal is to reach and inspire 100 million people on December 22, and we expect that hundreds or even thousands of other hubs worldwide will partake of this great initiatory event. Check out the currently registered hubs in the hub map.
You can learn more of our evolving plans for December 22—and also about how to convene your December 22 event—by going to the blue box on the sidebar on the right and opting in to receive our weekly e-zine, the Birth 2012 Catalyst.
Types of Hubs That Are Evolving
Hubs are diverse and hubs are fun!
The Birth 2012 movement is evolving to include three kinds of hubs:
- Face-to-face Birth 2012 hubs
- “Virtual” Birth 2012 hubs (i.e., online meetings hosted at our sister site, here)
- Existing groups with a core focus outside of the Birth 2012 movement that wish to join us in observing the Birth on December 22
If one of the types of hubs on this list describes your group—and if you feel ready to declare yourself a hub—just visit this link. It will only take a few minutes; you will then suddenly show up on our hub map. That way, others in your locality can find you and celebrate with you on our planet’s Due Date!
Hubs and Wheels
Hubs form the center of wheels. To understand the relationship of hubs and the “Wheel of Cocreation,” please be sure you have watched the second video in the “Learn More” section of this website. The Wheel itself is pictured here in the right column.
In essence, a hub is the place where we feel the “impulse of evolution” coming through our hearts. Once we are in contact with this pulse, we can engage in “hub practices.” Aside from hosting a December 22 event, we think that three such hub activities are helpful: convening, resonating, and supporting.
The Three Recommendations of a Hub
Hubs are simple to create and enter on the hub map. But for those who would like to go further, our general suggestion is that you start your hub with a minimum of four people who are willing to consider one commitment and three recommendations. We’ve discussed the one commitment above; we explore the three recommendations below.
To learn much more about our recommendations for hubs, plus much more, see our hub toolkit.
A hub begins with just one commitment—
but we also offer three recommendations
1. OUR FIRST RECOMMENDATION: Resonate in your hub
A hub that wants to go further than convening an event on December 22 can decide to become a “frequency holder” for the Great Shift.
When we meet with our fellows and learn to touch base with our essential selves in their presence—we exponentially amplify the frequency of the resonance of ourselves and of each member; and, we also contribute to the resonant field of the Birth 2012 movement worldwide.
With skilled facilitation, achieving hub resonance is also possible in a virtual (online) hub.
We especially recommend that, in order to elevate their group resonance, hubs practice the heart coherence technique created by the prominent research organization known as HeartMath. This practice is covered in the hub toolkit, and also in Barbara’s book Birth 2012 and Beyond.
2. OUR SECOND RECOMMENDATION: Convene regularly under the leadership of a hub facilitator
As stated, we have discovered that having four inaugural members is optimal for launching a hub. In addition, we have found that each hub that wishes to go beyond hosting a December 22 event will probably need a facilitator who could facilitate meetings one or twice each month—and help maintain group resonance.
If you decide to become a Hub facilitator, please email us to register at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Much more about hub facilitation is covered in the hub toolkit.
3. OUR THIRD RECOMMENDATION: Support each other in giving your gift to the Shift
As we resonate in our hubs, it is only natural that our unique creativity rises to the surface. One result is that we become energized to seek for—or more deeply realize—our true life purpose. Barbara also calls this our “vocation of destiny.”
Stated in other words, a local or virtual hub is the place to become “vocationally aroused” with the support of the other members of your group. In addition to Barbara’s book and courses, the updates you will receive from Birth 2012 Catalyst will assist you in supporting one another in your hub in giving your gifts to the Shift. You also find more about this process in the hub toolkit.
