There are a couple of blogs that I read on a regular basis, such as the Curt Jester.
Well, he linked in his blog (from someone else) about those wild and wacky LCWR leaders, who invited someone to give the keynote. They decided to invite Barbara Marx Hubbard. According to her biography:
she received an honorary PhD in Conscious Evolution from the Giordano Bruno GlobalShift University. She has established a Chair in Conscious Evolution at Wisdom University and is member of many progressive organizations, including Evolutionary Leaders Group, Global New Thought (AGNT), as well as, The World Future Society.
But, if not, you can go to her website and read more: http://www.barbaramarxhubbard.com/site/
