U.S. Practice Group Leader Training

The first U.S. training – the group is closed now!
Develop your skills in Transparent Communication and learn to lead your own Practice Group.

Are you called to develop your competencies and be supported to create a Practice Group in your area? Would you like to participate in facilitating the evolution of embodied spiritual practice utilizing conscious relational skill building, contemplative practices, and mystical principles? In this training, you will develop your skills in Transparent Communication and learn to help others to do the same.

Practice Groups are containers where one can develop competencies to explore the leading edge of personal and collective transformation, combine meditative practices, somatic and subtle awareness, and conscious cultural engagement in alignment with the teachings of Thomas Hübl. Transparent Communication practices of deep listening and seeing – ways of being more fully present and of communicating authentically – can open our awareness of deeper dimensions of our inner reality and change our relationships.

We are offering this training in the U.S. for the first time in 2019, taught by Thomas Hübl’s authorized instructors, Eva Giedt and Rae Riedel. Thomas will join via video call during one session. This training is an opportunity for you to develop a caring system and to join the global field of Practice Group Leaders.

Thomas Hübl’s work has expanded worldwide and particularly in the U.S. Practice Group Leader Training has evolved over the past seven years in Germany, taught by Thomas’s Senior Students, Axel Perinchery, Susanne Ahlendorf and Vivian Kolbe. We are supporting the U.S. field with the upcoming Practice Group Leader Training.
