On Healing Collective Trauma
with Thomas Hübl and Brian Swimme
An Online Conversation
Presented in partnership by California Institute of Integral Studies
We are living through a global challenge where collective trauma layers are being reactivated. It’s important that we meet this moment with presence and awareness.
Trauma is both an individual and a collective issue, but we are often unaware of our collective trauma because we are born into a world that has already been traumatized. Only when we consciously look at our world and unpack the larger story of the human experience and our place in the universe, can we understand our collective trauma and discover insights for healing.
Join modern mystic Thomas Hübl and cosmologist Brian Swimme for an exploration of trauma through the lens of what came before and how understanding the cosmos can illuminate new paths for healing.
Thomas and Brian will be available to respond to questions from attendees during this 90-minute free online conversation event.
This discussion will be followed by a two-day weekend workshop with Thomas on the same topic.
