"The Evolutionary Woman is inspired by giving her gift of creativity to the world. She sees crisis as
the birth of creative potential." 

— Barbara Marx Hubbard

Women Lead The Change To A Positive Future

As women, we have more power to change the world than ever before.

Our foremothers worked to broaden our opportunties and expand our roles in society. But now that people are questioning the future of women's rights, there's also a massive opportunity for us to step into our full potential. 

So we recently talked to Barbara Marx Hubbard, a visionary who's built a community of consciously powerful women, who also happens
to be the subject of Neale Donald Walsch's New York Times
Bestselling Novel, The Mother of Invention.

Barbara believes there is a new emerging woman: the "Evolutionary Woman"

What Makes An Evolutionary Woman?

Barbara coined the phrase to describe a woman who is inspired to use her
own vision, creativity, love and hope to solve global and
local problems that matter to her.

We agree with Barbara that the Evolutionary Woman is going to shape the world. That's why later this year, we're offering a course with Barbara for free to the women who participate in the International Women's March.

And to honor International Women's Day, our incredible Creative Director,
Dorota Stanczyk, photographed the team here at Mindvalley. Our
amazing photographers, 
Paulius Staniunas, Karen Härms,
Kersti Niglas, photographed our authors, all of whom
personify the Evolutionary Woman. 

We come from different nations.
We follow different religions.
We work in different professions.
We pursue different passions.
We play different roles in life.

But It Doesn't Matter What Our Labels Are. 
It Matters What We Stand Up For.
