Featured Mobius Practitioners: Thomas Huebl

“The art of healing is to feel into, to find, and to support the spark that is loyal to the sacred movement of life… that spark is an orchestration… we are all connected to the higher organizing principle.”

Thomas Huebl is a renowned spiritual teacher, author, and international facilitator whose lifelong work integrates the core insights of the great wisdom traditions and mysticism with the discoveries of science. Thomas is blazing a path of 21st century spiritual practice and helping thousands of students around the world to really live their awakening amid today’s busy world.

Since 2004, he has taught and facilitated programs with more than 100,000 people worldwide, including online courses which he began offering in 2008. The origin of his work and more than two decades of study and practice on healing collective trauma is detailed in his book Healing Collective Trauma: A Process for Integrating Our Intergenerational and Cultural Wounds. This opus explores how significant collective trauma symptoms are in shaping our modern society and contains cutting edge remedies that serve as a beacon of hope for generations to come.

Mysticism and the principles that guide the actualization and practice of embodying these profound experiences are at the heart of Thomas’ teachings. In all his courses, participants can expect to learn from his extensive experience as a teacher of meditation and study of wisdom traditions. His didactic talks draw from evidence-based research and the leading edge of transpersonal, interdisciplinary studies.

Opening dialogue around some of the most painful atrocities and collective traumas our world has experienced is at the heart of Thomas’ work. His methodology, Collective Trauma Integration Process promotes a safe exploration of sharing and reflection, guided by a group facilitation process that supports radical openness, transparent communication, mindful awareness, and refined relational competencies. His non-profit, the Pocket Project, works to support the healing of collective trauma throughout the world.

Thomas has led large-scale events that have brought together thousands of Germans and Israelis to acknowledge, face, and heal the cultural shadow left by the Holocaust. In the last decade, his events have also focused on processing the collective traumas of racism, oppression, colonialism, genocides, and the complexities of those regions and groups which experience multiple historic and current challenges. These events have been held in the U.S., Israel, Germany, Spain, and Argentina.

Since 2019, Hübl has hosted an annual summit on collective trauma, which has brought together more than one hundred speakers and 108,000 participants from more than 100 countries. He leads workshops and training programs at Harvard Medical School, California Institute of Integral Studies, among others. Thomas is developing academic programs that explore new frontiers in research and discoveries in the interdisciplinary field he has coined as “Inner Science.” To this end, his educational organization, the Academy of Inner Science founded in 2008, launched a master’s and doctoral studies program in cooperation with universities in Europe and the US. In 2020, Thomas received an honorary doctorate from Ubiquity University in California for “his pioneering work in the field of trauma.”

The interdisciplinary nature of Thomas’ work is practiced by working groups and partnerships with physicians, psychologists, and therapists from the U.S., Germany, Israel, Canada, and several other countries. These professionals have trained under his tutelage to learn competencies that support self-care for themselves, their patients, and clients, and to work towards systemic changes in making healthcare more innovative, empathic, and trauma-informed.

He is a rare guide: a masterful mystic able to navigate advanced realms of spiritual mastery while presenting himself in a delightfully warm, transparent, brotherly way. He is the best of 21st century enlightenment: deep thinking, clear-seeing, and radical in his stance.
