Thomas Hübl, founder of the Academy of Inner Science

Thomas Hübl is a modern mystic, a spiritual teacher whose work integrates the core insights of the great wisdom traditions with the discoveries of contemporary science, illuminating both with his profound understanding.

Thomas’s teachings offer a unique approach for living as a mystic in the “marketplace” of human activity. His work combines somatic awareness practices, advanced meditative practices, a sophisticated analysis of cultural architecture, and transformational processes that address trauma and shadow issues. His teachings aim to guide practitioners toward a deeper level of self-awareness—from an ego-centered worldview to a life of authentic expression, service, and alignment.

Since 2004 Thomas has been leading workshops, multi-year training programs, and larger events and festivals. A sought-after private advisor to social entrepreneurs, business leaders, government officials, and spiritual aspirants, Thomas is a regularly featured speaker at conferences and workshops worldwide.

Teaching Activities

Thomas teaches an intensive two-year study program called Timeless Wisdom Training, which offers a path for spiritual development on individual, collective, and transpersonal levels. The program is now in its fifth cycle in Germany and in its second cycle in the United States. Hundreds of alumni meet several times a year for an advanced practice and study program called the Core Group, guided by Thomas.

Thomas regularly offers in-depth, live online seminars, such as A Course in Mystical Principles, The Mystical Principles of Healing, and most recently, Meditate and Mediate, with William Ury.

Some of his online courses, such as The Mystic’s Guide to Transforming Stress and The Art of Transparent Communication, are available for on-demand access after the live course ends. Thomas’s online courses have been attended by thousands of students from more than 40 countries.

Thomas leads a free, semi-monthly worldwide meditation event called the Download Meditation, during which participants connect in a subtle field to “download” deeper, more profound states of consciousness from a higher channel of energy.

He also regularly leads Toning sessions, vocalizing specific sounds that focus inner coherence and attunement in a group setting, helping participants drop into meditative states and gain a profound experience of space, presence, and connection.

Thomas’ intention has always been to combine the inner science with the outer, academic science. This began to become reality in 2018. There is now a PhD program in cooperation with various representatives of universities in Europe and the USA. More about it here

Since 2020, the MA Program “Inner Science” has existed in cooperation with Ubiquity University in California. More about it here

In March 2020, Ubiquity honored Thomas Hübl with an honorary doctorate. More about it here

Non-Profit Initiatives

Through his German nonprofit organization Sharing the Presence e.V. founded in 2010, Thomas seeks to facilitate conscious cultural change through raising awareness of the importance of mature participation in society. Its initiatives include the popular Celebrate Life Festival, a multi-day immersive event which takes place annually in alternate locations in Germany or the United States.

Thomas is also the founder of the nonprofit Pocket Project, which aims to stop the vicious cycle of recurring collective trauma and ultimately reduce its effects on our global culture.

Over the past fifteen years, Thomas has guided large-scale healing events that have brought together thousands of Germans and Israelis to acknowledge, face, and heal the cultural shadow left by the Holocaust.

Thomas’ Story

Thomas Hübl was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1971. He studied medicine for several years and was intensely interested in bodywork and related therapies. At the age of 26, he followed a strong inner calling and took the radical step of abandoning his studies to spend four years in retreat in the Czech Republic. During that time, he devoted himself almost exclusively to meditation and experienced a fundamental and revelatory opening.

After returning to Vienna, he held individual teaching sessions that touched many people deeply. Spiritual teacher Paul Lowe recognized Thomas’ potential and supported him. Invitations to give his own workshops soon followed, attracting an ever-increasing number of participants in Germany. In subsequent years, Thomas’ work has become known internationally.

For the past 15 years, Thomas has dedicated himself to the systematic exploration of mysticism, gaining insights into how mystical knowledge can help fill in the gaps in science. These explorations form the foundation of his pioneering Academy of Inner Science, a unique institution utilizing a distinctive approach to exploring consciousness, evolution, and the junctures between mysticism and science.

Since 2004, Thomas has maintained an active schedule of speaking, teaching, and training both students and professionals. He lives in Tel Aviv and Germany with his wife, the Israeli artist Yehudit Sasportas, and their daughter.

“The deepest listening is presence, is consciousness itself. It is space, an open heart, compassion and a deep receiving of someone.”


Praise for Thomas’s Work

Thomas Hübl has a unique ability to uncover the underlying dynamics of individual and collective trauma that block the resolution of conflicts. With compassion and insight, Thomas helps people heal their deepest wounds and access their highest potential to be of service in this troubled world.

William Ury

Author, Getting to Yes with Yourself

Thomas Hübl delves deeply into both timeless wisdom and the specific needs of our time. I have found his work with collective healing to be tremendously innovative and eye-opening. It brought me to my own edges of openness and withdrawal. This type of engagement with what appears to be “other” is what we need, in my opinion, to learn what it truly means to take multiple perspectives and live in an open-hearted way.

Tami Simon

Founder and Publisher, Sounds True

Thomas Hübl is a spiritual teacher for our time, illumined and practical, rational and deeply profound. His teaching is clear like a mirror. He is at once sharp and cutting, yet gentle, receptive, and compassionate. You can’t help but expand in his presence.

Diane Musho Hamilton

Author, The Zen of You and Me; and Everything Is Workable

When Thomas Hübl teaches, a clean, fresh, lighted spacious clarity naturally opens up in and among people—shifting the energy of the room. His presence functions as a kind of permission, and the group field opens in a beautiful, unmistakable way. It activates intuition, shines Light into shadow, and reveals the insubstantial transparency of whatever seemed to be in the way. It also frees up a tremendous amount of joyful energy.

Terry Patten

Author, A New Republic of the Heart

Thomas Hübl enables people to come into a deeper understanding of presence, compassion, transparency and authenticity. He shows us how to link our developing self awareness with our potential to be of service in society. In his online course he will guide people to explore deeply the essence of the great wisdom traditions, together with profound levels of self knowledge and personal responsibility.

Scilla Elworthy

Author, The Business Plan for Peace and Co-Founder, Rising Women, Rising World

Thomas’s profound insights triggered my realization of how we can transform our ‘experience’ into “essence.” I developed “Theatre of Transformation” to express this purposeful essence that underlies the destructive/distracting dramas we all experience as human beings, and to enable people to “rewrite the script” and enact the personal and global transformation they envision. The impact is profound. Thomas reminds us that daily life can be lived as an ever-surprising creative inspiration.
