In this episode, I talk with Thomas Hübl, a renowned teacher, author, and international facilitator. We explore healing collective trauma and the importance of developing attunement in relationships. Thomas shares insights on trauma’s impact on our nervous systems and the intergenerational transmission of trauma. We also discuss the broader implications of trauma for humanity and the planet and the need for deeper healing and interdependence. Join us on this deep dive to discover more about the far-reaching impact of trauma and the tangible steps we can collectively take towards integration, embodiment, and healing.


Thomas Hübl, PhD, works within the complexity of systems and cultural change, integrating the core insights of the great wisdom traditions and mysticism with the discoveries of science. He is the author of Attuned: Practicing Interdependence to Heal Our Trauma—and Our World and Healing Collective Trauma: A Process for Integrating Our Intergenerational and Cultural Wounds.
