Banyen's Description: 

A comprehensive guide to understanding and addressing collective trauma.

What can you do when you carry scars not on your body, but within your soul? And what happens when those spiritual wounds exist not just in you, but in everyone in your life?

Whether or not we have experienced personal trauma, we are all—in very real ways—impacted by the legacy of familial and cultural suffering. Recent research has shown that trauma affects groups just as acutely as it does individuals; it bridges families, generations, communities, and borders.

 I believe that unresolved systemic traumas delay the development of the human family, harm the natural world, and inhibit the higher evolution of our species. However, just as trauma can be integrated and healed for a single person, groups large and small can also find recovery.

With Healing Collective Trauma, this world-renowned spiritual teacher presents a deeply hopeful road map. Hübl explains the most recent science of trauma and shares the principles of his Collective Trauma Integration Process (CTIP), a protocol he has facilitated for groups in the US, Germany, Israel, and elsewhere. He examines collective trauma both from the perspective of the latest research and through a spiritual lens informed by 15 years as a meditation teacher. Including contributions from renowned experts from across the field of trauma treatment, as well as meditative practices to support both counselors and clients, Healing Collective Trauma presents a fresh perspective on trauma integration along with practical tools for beginning the journey to wholeness.

Such as…

  • The innumerable ways trauma shapes our world—from identity and health to economy, geopolitics, and the state of the environment
  • The concept of “trauma loyalty”—unconscious group bonds based in a pain narrative
  • How the climate crisis is both a manifestation of humanity’s collective trauma and an opportunity to heal
  • Retrocausality—how the power of presence can reshape the past and make new futures possible.

 As Thomas declares,

Together, I believe we can and must heal the soul wound that marks us all. In so doing, we will awaken to the luminous possibility and profound potential of our true, mutual nature as humankind.

Publisher’s Description: 

A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding and Healing Shared Trauma

What can you do when you carry scars not on your body, but within your soul? And what happens when those spiritual wounds exist not just in you, but in everyone in your family, community, and even beyond?

Spiritual teacher Thomas Hbl has spent years investigating why it is that old and seemingly disconnected traumas can seed their way through communities and across generations. His work culminates in Healing Collective Trauma, a new perspective on trauma that addresses both its visible effects and its most hidden roots. Thomas combines deep knowledge of mystical traditions with the latest scientific research. In this way, writes Thomas, we are weaving a double helix between ancient wisdom and contemporary understanding.

Thomas details the Collective Trauma Integration Process, a group-based modality for evoking and eventually dissolving stuck traumatic energies. Providing structured practices for both students and group facilitators, Healing Collective Trauma is intended to build a practical tool kit for integration.

Here, you will learn:

- The innumerable ways trauma shapes our worldfrom identity and health to economy, geopolitics, and the state of the environment
- The concept of trauma loyaltyunconscious group bonds based in a pain narrative
- How the climate crisis is both a manifestation of humanitys collective trauma and an opportunity to heal
- Retrocausalityhow the power of presence can reshape the past and make new futures possible

Including essays contributed by experts such as Dr. Gabor Mat, Dr. Otto Scharmer, Dr. Christina Bethell, and Ken Wilber, Healing Collective Trauma offers not just an advanced look at community trauma but also a hopeful glimpse of the future. As Thomas declares, Together, I believe we can and must heal the soul wound that marks us all. In so doing, we will awaken to the luminous possibility and profound potential of our true, mutual nature as humankind.
