According to the Hummingbird Living School, Conscious Co-Creation is "defined in “The Co-Creator’s Handbook”, coauthored by Carolyn Anderson and Katharine Roske, as “Co-participating consciously with the laws or patterns of the Creator; conscious alignment with the essence of others and with nature; Self aligning with Self, vertically and horizontally.” A conscious co-creator is one who surrenders and aligns their will with the intention of Creation, the universal mind, the designing intelligence, Spirit; one who shares their gifts and actualizes their dreams in synergistic play with other co-creators to bring forth a new world."
