“The Timeless Wisdom Training helps you expand your inner awareness and relational capacities to be of greater service during this time of rapid change in the world.”

Thomas Hübl

A Special Invitation from Thomas Hübl

We are opening enrollment for the next 2-year Timeless Wisdom Training (TWT), which begins in February, 2025, and we warmly invite you to apply.

It is rare in our world to be able to access leading-edge teachings and frameworks, skilled mentors, and a conscious community deeply committed to going beyond surface-level changes to create deep, lasting levels of inner transformation.

Timeless Wisdom Training is our most in-depth program for those ready to accelerate their personal, professional, and spiritual growth

At this time, we are facing a polycrisis in our world that includes wars, economic volatility, social/political unrest, and ecological crises, any of which has the potential to cause systemic stress and upheaval.

The good news is that practical solutions are emerging that combine the latest in trauma healing modalities, psychosomatic therapies, and wisdom practices. To serve both our individual and our collective evolution, each of us can choose to work with our personal, ancestral, and collective trauma and learn conscious growth tools, practices, and methods—the primary curriculum inside TWT.

Many TWT graduates credit the program as a significant turning point in their development. The commitment level, presence, and quality of the participants–combined with the resonant group field–create a powerful container and activator for change. The program demands a high level of commitment, and that intensity opens the door for profound breakthroughs

what’s inside the program:

  1. Four 7-Day In-person Residential Retreats with Thomas Hübl [28 days in retreat]
  2. Seven Immersive Online Retreats with Thomas Hübl [24 days of retreat]
  3. Ongoing Mentor Group Meetings
  4. Members-Only Online Community
  5. Private Course Portal with downloadable materials
  6. Certificate of Completion
  7. Special Bonus Trainings

Timeless Wisdom Training is open to anyone who is deeply committed to their own personal and spiritual growth and wants to make a difference in the world. 

The program attracts many professional practitioners—such as therapists, coaches, consultants, educators, healthcare workers, and alternative healers—who then integrate what they learn into their respective fields and to serve others.

We encourage you to register for the Introductory Session and to submit your application if you are interested in being considered for one of the limited spaces in the program.

You can find all the details about the curriculum, dates/locations, and the application process below on this page. 

We look forward to welcoming you into the next Timeless Wisdom Training, and thank you again for being part of our growing global community.

With Gratitude,

Thomas Hübl

Founder, The Academy of Inner Science​

P.S. The upcoming TWT program will have two geographic “hubs,” one in the United States and another in Germany. Both will run simultaneously; and in addition, all participants will come together for several online retreats, making it a truly global program.
“To increase our capacity and ability to serve others in our professional work and field, it is essential we give ourselves the time and proper container to create inner transformation. The Timeless Wisdom Training is your space and community to do just that.”

Thomas Hübl

A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE TO ACCELERATE GROWTH & TO BE OF GREATER SERVICE 

Timeless Wisdom Training (TWT) is a 2-year process designed to help you build relational capacities and learn practical skills, methods, and frameworks that you can apply in your professional field of expertise and bring into your daily life. 

It is a unique opportunity to enter a safe, supportive container for deep individual and group process work and to develop new levels of competency in self- and co-regulation, trauma integration, group coherence building, and contemplative practices.

Due to the busy nature of our lives, many of us rarely create the time and space for the deep study and inner work required to heal and create lasting inner change.

Being a member of TWT means leaning into study, group work, meditation, and new leading-edge practices. By participating, you affirm your commitment to conscious change and transformation.

Prioritizing your own learning and growth for this concentrated time will enhance your ability to be of service to others.

What’s Inside the Curriculum

The Timeless Wisdom Training is a journey to activate your potential across four key dimensions: 
individual, ancestral, collective, and spiritual

Individual Development

We will be doing deep individual awareness building, process and shadow work and examining the nature and effects of trauma in our lives.

Ancestral Healing

We will look into and work on the integration of our own ancestral lineage and the intergenerational traumas we may be carrying.

Collective Evolution

We will explore the cultural dynamics in which we are embedded, including an examination of collective shadow and trauma.

Spiritual Connection

We will explore the development of transpersonal awareness through meditation and contemplation

CORE Topics and Teachings

Inner

Development

Awaken your intuitive capacities and learn to work with shadow material to accelerate inner growth.

Transparent

Communication

Learn skills and subtle competencies to create more space, clarity, and presence in your relationships.

The Path of
Meditation

Develop transpersonal awareness and explore subtle states of consciousness via daily meditation practices.

Personal
Trauma

Gain a deep understanding of the impacts of trauma in your personal history and uncover hidden trauma layers.

Relational

Awareness

Develop interpersonal competencies and become more present and attuned in your interactions with others.

Presencing &
Embodiment

Learn to work with energy, space, and inner structure to create coherence in thinking, feeling, and sensing.

Mystical
Principles

Deepen your awareness of karmic patterns and explore fundamental principles of reality and creation.

Collective
Trauma

Understand the nature and effects of collective trauma and learn to create group resonance fields for healing.

The Collective Trauma Facilitator Track 

Completing TWT is the first step towards becoming part of a global network of trained facilitators that can be actively mobilized to support people in times of crisis. After completing TWT, established practitioners in the helping professions can apply to continue their studies with Thomas in the Collective Trauma Facilitator Training (CTFT). 

In the CTFT program, practitioners expand their skills in collective trauma integration work and group facilitation. This then leads into an additional internship phase that allows new facilitators to apply their skills in assisting with Collective Trauma Integration Processes (CTIPs), facilitating International Labs, and other projects.

The CTFT is only open to those who first complete TWT and is by application after graduation because facilitating groups is a very advanced skill and requires mastery at many levels.

If you intend to pursue the Collective Trauma Facilitator certification after TWT, please indicate this in your application. In addition to the CTFT track, there will be other opportunities to apply to continue study through ongoing mentor and training groups.

AIS Graduate Program

Additionally, students enrolled in a Ph.D. program at one of our cooperating academic institutions may be eligible to receive academic credit for the Timeless Wisdom Training. Click here for more information about the Academy of Inner Science Graduate Program.

“The Timeless Wisdom Training is the primary container and foundation for those who want to accelerate their own personal development and for practitioners interested in eventually becoming facilitators of our more advanced work.”

Thomas Hübl

A Global program with two HUBS – U.S. and Europe

When you enroll in TWT, you will choose to join either the U.S. or the European Hub.

Each group will meet separately for in-person retreats:

  • The U.S. Hub will hold its retreats in the United States. Thomas will teach in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish. (Note: Spanish translation will only be provided if at least 20 participants require it). A Spanish language mentor group and triads will be available.

  • The European Hub will hold its retreats in Germany. Thomas will teach in English with simultaneous translation into German. For German speakers who prefer it, Thomas will answer their questions in German with simultaneous translation into English. German language mentor groups and triads will be available.

Attendance at the in-person retreats is required.

The two groups will come together for online retreats, which will be conducted in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish (if at least 20 participants require it) and German.

The U.S. Hub intends to include those who live in North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Asia. The European Hub intends to include those who live in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and parts of Asia.

View the full training schedule and retreat locations for the U.S. Hub 

View the full training schedule and retreat locations for the European Hub 

Enrollment will be limited due to venue size and because the nature of the work requires supervision and intimacy. It is anticipated that enrollment of both Hubs will reach capacity. Once the program is filled, you will be able to join a waiting list in case there are cancellations.

Who Should Apply

TWT is open to anyone who is deeply committed to their own personal and spiritual growth and meant for those who are currently or plan to work by being of service to individuals and groups. The program attracts many dedicated professionals such as therapists, coaches, NGO executives, consultants, educators, business leaders, healthcare workers, and alternative healers who also aim to apply what they learn in their respective areas of practice. 

Here are some examples of the people who have gone through the program

Psychotherapists, Social Workers

Healthcare and Healing Practitioners

Business Leaders, Consultants

Educators and Coaches

Mediators and Group Facilitators

Meditation and Mindfulness Practitioners

Be Part of a Skilled & Dedicated Community

Due to the nature and structure of this program, TWT attracts those who are committed to their own personal growth and to use that growth in their work to make a positive difference in the world. Each program calls in a unique group that supports each other in their psychological, emotional, and spiritual development inside the program and beyond.

We are not meant to engage in process work in isolation. As part of TWT, you will be supported and also give support to others. Many participants form meaningful lifetime friendships. You will have the opportunity to participate in mentor groups, live breakout sessions, and triads with other participants on a similar path.

The global nature of the program will foster international connections, expanding your potential for collaborative projects and initiatives worldwide. The varied cultural backgrounds among participants bring a richness to the community.

“To create a container for deep transformational work, we must commit to each other. It’s a commitment from me to you, and from you to me. In this commitment we care for each other, and we grow more and more stable in our alignment with the source of life. This nourishing environment is where healing happens.”
–Thomas Hübl

“It was really lovely to build connections with other people on a similar path. I felt supported by many people in the community, and the through triads, practice groups, and study groups, I came to better understand how we realize our purpose in collaborative ways and how to grow through relationships.”

Here is What Participants are Saying

“Everything that is spoken about as a principal is also a practice… and so I have a chance to have an embodied experience. Then the teachings become mine, and the wisdom becomes mine.”

— Cristina O., Healer, Artist, and Musician, Hartsdale, NY, United States

“The therapeutic and the spiritual practices are different, but in this training they support each other – I’ve never seen this kind of integration anywhere else.”

— Shayla W., Coach, Mentor, Writer and Facilitator, Vancouver, Canada

“What I have learned is beyond what I could’ve ever imagined.”

— Brita F., Coach, Public Speaker, and Author, Clifton, Bedfordshire, UK

“TWT and the container that was created exposed me to a completely different culture and way of being collectively.”

— Prashant G., Executive Leader and Consultant, Asheville, NC, United States

“Every part of my life has been touched by this training. One of the most powerful teachings that has come through is to be with what is, and to not resist life or to try to fix or override.”

— Yocheved S., Depth-Work Facilitator, Spiritual Teacher & Founder, Brooklyn, NY, United States 

“In TWT… There’s maturity, depth, and a psychological sophistication that comes from the breadth of Thomas’ teaching.”

— Gary R., Professor Emeritus and Reiki Teacher, Daly City, CA, United States

“In Timeless Wisdom Training, people open up and show up in a vulnerable and coherent way that is unique and healing.”

— Dr. Jens R., Executive Coach, Therapist and Facilitator, Grünwald, Germany

“Now I can really ground into and find my own boundaries of who I am – and also hold that it’s still an evolution.”

— Thuy P., Aspiring Integral Development Coach, Cape Town, South Africa

“…sharing, practicing, and meditating together, I have learned what it truly means to listen and see with the whole body…” 

— Amela T., Integral Psychotherapist, Copenhagen, Denmark

“I found a community where I feel seen, I feel valued, I feel like I’m being met. I now feel  ripe for the next level of growth in my life.”

— Marie M., Coach and Consultant, Minneapolis, MN, United States 

“We can come together to witness a lot of pain and transform it into strength and love. And for this I am deeply grateful.

— Mengke T., Psychotherapist, Beijing, China

"Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, dear Thomas and the whole team. I am still in awe and it gives me tears to think about how much healing, transformation and growth that happened through the strong commitment of our container. It gives me hope for the future of humanity, and strength to keep walking my path going forward."
— Kristine A., Healing Facilitator, Tokyo, Japan
“TWT started one of the most exciting journeys of my life. I have gained a much more comprehensive and clear understanding of my life and am able to include this in my contribution to the marketplace through innovation and leadership. Thomas' teachings, regular meditation, and exchanges with other students have also strengthened my intuition and made me a keen explorer of the dynamics of metaphysics and creation. I highly recommend it.”
— Dr. Joana B., Co-Founder of Betterplace.org, Berlin, Germany
“I joined TWT during a time when I was looking for answers. I have been on a spiritual path all my life and taken many courses, and TWT helped me fill in the missing pieces, bring it all cohesively together, and go to a whole new level of spiritual development. I learned how to slow down time, see where my pain comes from, and make choices. I am now happy, and I know I can handle what life brings me. I have awareness about my contributions to each situation.”
— Daciana I., Physician, Santa Rosa, CA, USA
"There has been a sharpened focus. I feel like I have a new set of precise tools to go within and connect more deeply with what’s happening in individuals, and then of course being able to give them a clearer answer about what’s going on, because I see it more clearly."
— Gary J., Body-Mind Awareness Trainer, Berlin, Germany
“I followed an inner “Yes” to join TWT, and it was one of those few choices that fundamentally shifted the flow of my life in a more aligned way. I became more of who I am, and shifted into feeling on purpose. It showed me what true giving with love can feel like. During the online retreats, I found integration within the rhythm of my daily life, and the in-person retreats offered a deeper dive and friendships.”
— Johanne L., Consultant and Executive Coach, Alberta, Canada
“TWT provided a container of support during a very fragile and transitional time in my life. I made lifelong friends and connections in the community. The online retreats saved travel and accommodation expenses, while the in-person retreats offered a beautiful venue and integration of past experience with present reality.”
— Linda W., Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Midcoast, Maine, USA
"I am more porous, softer, able to attune with others more regularly as a way of being, not just a work practice. I feel so much more: I have changed my diet, drink less alcohol and caffeine because I don't want to numb myself. I am more present and better able to feel and to meet my life as it emerges. I am more in flow, feeling the vulnerability and fear and desire and excitement and joy. I am more hopeful and able to find my way even in the midst of all the challenges going on."
— Marie M., Coach & Consultant, Minneapolis, MN, USA
“TWT changed all aspects of my life. I joined to heal transgenerational and collective trauma energies I carry, both for myself and to avoid passing on more than necessary to my children and grandchildren. I found more peace in myself, I am more productive and successful, and I live my life's purpose more than ever before. The most valuable learning was that trauma healing needs relationship / community. This understanding changed the way I deal with triggers, problems, and conflicts. The most beneficial changes happened in the relationship with my wife. We are happy in a way we never were before, we have skills to deal with triggers and conflict so that these things are not feared anymore but welcomed.”
— Roland G., MD and Homeopath, Royston, BC, Canada
“I was drawn to TWT by a longing to live in the present. The program was a journey into the knowledge of self, ancestors, and community - whenever l had doubt or felt overwhelmed the mentors were there to help me. I can now approach life with an awareness of my body, thoughts, and emotions. I know what it is to be, to belong, and to become and l am observing how they are moving in my life.”
— Patricia H., Body Therapist, Social Anthropologist, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca Mexico
“TWT gifted me with an extraordinary sense of intimate community, becoming trauma-informed both personally and collectively, emotional embodiment, a felt sense of the ancestral dimension in life, and a more loving and open heart. I came more into alignment with my core values. I made new dear friends and now have a community of beloveds across the globe, having opened my heart beyond initial judgments, honoring everyone's journey with love and compassion.”
— Robin C., Nurse-Midwife, Sebastopol, CA, USA
"I have processed a lot of forgotten pain and have been gifted with love, professional and highly effective attention and guidance. As a result, I go through my life with much more inner space and peace. I have also benefited enormously as a coach and facilitator: I can facilitate much more client process than ever before. Perhaps my spiritual being has benefited the most: I now have a robust spiritual practice, a sangha, a teacher and access to many more teachers."
— Dr. Matthias M., Leadership Coach, Berlin, Germany
"In all my struggles with systemic racism and toxic work culture, I was so used to fighting that I lost my way. As TWT was coming to an end I had a big realization that I needed to retrace my steps and rediscover my 'why'. I found the answers: I’m a teacher and a healer, and moving forward from here, whatever I do needs to speak to that path. Everything else is noise! It has made my life that much simpler."
— Ntombiyethu B., Anesthesiologist, Centurion, Gauteng, South Africa
“This cycle of retreats is more than a course. It’s a transformative experience that leaves us more awake in meditation and more present in life. The way Thomas interacts with groups brings our hidden or neglected inner states into relation, with ourselves and with others, and it gently yet powerfully exposes our potential for personal growth. This work enables us as individuals to grow in our daily lives and become more responsible and aware citizens of the world.”
— Stefan H., Professor of Strategy, Cass Business School, London, England
"The content was exactly what I needed and some that I did not even know I needed. Thank you for this journey. I am most grateful."
— Wanjiku K., Teacher, Spiritual Companion, Integrated Healer, Nairobi, Kenya
"Initially, I had a lot of resistance, as spirituality was not part of my previous life as a founder in the start-up world. In addition, Thomas put me off at first sight because of my prejudices and cliches about spiritual leaders and gurus. Fortunately, my curiosity won out, I got fully involved and couldn't be more grateful to TWT. It has changed my life, I have learned to feel myself and others again and can live in the here and now much more often instead of constantly hoping for a better future."
— Waldemar Z., Start-Up Founder, Germany
"I have discovered a new way of relating to fragmentation in myself individually, ancestrally and collectively. There is much more space for being with and digesting life as it comes. I am deeply touched, a path is continuously opening up for me to walk.
— Bhavani BM., Student and Meditation Practitioner, Terrace, BC, Canada
"The last two years have been beautiful. My heart is full of gratitude for the uniquely universal experiences and deep connections. For the first time in my 54 year life I no longer find myself bracing for the day…Thomas, you are an extraordinary embodiment of consciousness and I feel blessed that our paths merged. To the beautiful souls of the sangha, thank you for each of your contributions to the relational field and for the imprint left on my heart. "
— Wendy N., Leadership Coach, Gauteng, South Africa
I have had a spiritual practice for many years; however, it was not embodied. Embodying my spiritual practice helps me to connect in a much deeper way to the spiritual gifts within myself and others, my areas of trauma (that could not be reached previously), and the Divine. I now meditate daily, and it is how I start my day. It helps me be more present within myself, more grounded, and come from a more authentic, caring place.
— Jacqueline H., Psychologist, Saugerties, NY, USA
“I was ready for a more whole life, and joined TWT after seeing Thomas’ graduates leading a retreat and walking in the world in a way that I wanted to, also. To say that TWT is life-changing is an understatement; it is life-transforming. Through this work, I discovered healing beyond my imagination. Working with and learning from Thomas has released so much of that suffering, allowing me to love more wisely, relate less defendedly, and rest more fully. He is simultaneously the most precise and gentle embodiment teacher I've ever met. Furthermore, he surrounds himself with a very talented team of assistants, and attracts a wonderful and diverse community, so there is deep support in the field.”
— Farshid F., Integrative Child Psychiatrist, San Francisco, CA, USA
"While I have had a great deal of therapy and the like, I wasn't very aware of how much trauma I had experienced. I wouldn't have known to name it that. I did not have an understanding or much experience of regulating or co-regulating. In that way, the training has helped me a great deal."
— Astrid B., Author, Santa Rosa, CA, USA
“I started TWT with the conviction that I would learn more about leadership and then master a kind of skillset. I thought I would get a kind of toolbox that I could use for my business and relationships. It was totally unclear to me that I myself would be the key. If I can lead myself, others will follow me, when I am in relationship with myself, I am in relationship with the world. All the expectations I had have been exceeded beyond belief, like nothing else I have ever experienced. The TWT is an individual, then collective journey through the tradition of life, it has given me confidence, purpose and faith in the intelligence of life."
— Philip S., Entrepenuer and Business Leader

Gentle, searching, and true - his leadership evokes at once a sense of loving connection and a thrilling  invitation to expand."

Frequently Asked Questions

When you enroll in TWT, you will choose to join either the U.S. or the European Hub.

Each Hub will meet separately for two in-person retreats each year:

  • The U.S. Hub will hold its retreats in the United States, which will be conducted in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish. (Note: Spanish translation will only be provided if at least 20 participants require it.)
  • The European Hub will hold its retreats in Germany, which will be conducted at times in German and at times in English, with simultaneous translation into the other language.

Attendance at the in-person retreats is required. 

The two groups will come together for online retreats, which will be conducted in English with simultaneous translation into German and Spanish. (Note: Spanish translation will only be provided if at least 20 participants require it.)

See the full schedule and retreat location for the U.S. Hub

See the full schedule and retreat location for the European Hub

Note: If any of these retreats cannot be held in person due to events beyond our control such as pandemics, natural disasters, government restrictions, criminal or terrorist acts, etc., then the retreat will instead be held online.

Over the 2-year program, we will come together in person for four intensive 7-day retreats with Thomas. Each retreat day typically includes teaching, Q&A, meditation, movement, breakout sessions, and triad work. Thomas will also guide individual process work with the supportive witnessing of the group.

The in-person retreats offer the opportunity to practice together in an environment free of other distractions and to make an embodied connection with Thomas and your fellow participants. A wealth of practical exploration arises directly from interactive dialogue with Thomas and within breakout discussions.

Each day usually begins at 7am and ends around 9:30pm, and includes regular breaks and meal times.

Each year, Thomas will lead several online retreats, which both Hubs will attend. These will be focused on going deeper into related topics inside the curriculum and for other group process work. They will help you keep and maintain personal and collective momentum on your journey, as well as strengthen and expand our global container for deep study and growth. 

During these online intensives, you will experience how to create, maintain and utilize group fields without being together in person. You can attend these retreats from the comfort of your home or wherever you may be. These sessions will include breakout groups and interaction with other participants in the program. There will also be opportunities for interactive Q&A between Thomas and the participants.

Thomas’ teaching during the online retreats will be conducted in English with simultaneous translation into German and Spanish. (Note: Spanish translation will only be provided if at least 20 participants require it.)

There will also be parts of the day where students gather in mentor and breakout sessions which are organized by language.

Throughout the program, you will be part of a smaller mentor group that is guided by one of Thomas’s trained assistants. Your group will meet during retreats and may also meet between sessions, approximately once per month. The mentor group is your more intimate “home base,” where you will deepen your own processes and integration.

In these meetings you’ll be able to ask questions, engage in a discussion of the course materials, talk with other participants in small breakout groups of 3-6 people, share your own experiences and learnings with others, and give and receive support as you go through the program. Students are also expected to meditate daily.

Where available, some students also participate in local in-person practice groups. Many TWT students also enroll in Thomas’s online classes to deepen their learning and their connection to the wider global sangha.

No. Students must commit to attending all days of every retreat. If there is an emergency or an extremely important personal or professional conflict, students may request permission to miss a maximum of two and a half days per year.

If a student is unable to travel to one of the in-person retreats due to extreme events beyond their control such as pandemics, natural disasters, government travel restrictions, criminal or terrorist acts, etc., then accommodations will be made for the student to attend the retreat via internet connection.

Before applying for the Timeless Wisdom Training we ask that you either attend the free online Introductory Session with Thomas or watch the recording.

To begin your application for the Timeless Wisdom Training program, you will fill out and submit an application form to tell us a bit about your background and interests. An application fee of $75 / €62 will be required. Applications will be accepted starting June 4.

Once your application has been received and reviewed, you will be asked to schedule an online interview with a member of the TWT Assistant team.

The application and interview process are designed to clarify whether the program is a good fit for the applicant at this time in their life’s journey. Given the level of commitment required, it is important that the student’s life circumstances will allow them to fully participate and benefit from the program.

We expect that most applications will be reviewed and interviews completed within 8 weeks of submission. Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full. The U.S. and European Hubs will each accept around 200 participants.

Tuition information and payment options can be found above. In addition, students must pay for their own food and lodging at the retreat center as well as any travel expenses for the in-person retreats.

All students are required to stay at the retreat center for the in-person retreats, even if they happen to live nearby. This is a very important aspect of building the energetic field throughout the retreat.

When calculating your cost, it is important to also consider the time commitment needed to attend retreats, and how that may affect your income.

A limited number of partial scholarships will be available for qualified applicants based on financial need, to cover tuition expenses only.

When submitting your application for the TWT program, you will be able to indicate whether you would like to apply financial assistance. If so, you will be contacted by a member of our team and be offered the opportunity to submit a scholarship application.

The EU Hub offers a special 50% scholarship for full-time students who are 25 years or younger. Validation of full-time enrollment at a college or university is required (must be a campus-based program).

There are limited spaces in the TWT program, and once it begins, no new students are allowed to join. The closed nature of the TWT allows participants to develop a deep trust and a safe container together. The program demands a high level of commitment and that intensity opens the door for deeper breakthroughs to happen.

It is important for students to be fully committed to the entire program and to plan ahead to make space and time for it during the two-year period. That said, Thomas recognizes that abrupt, significant life changes can occur, and the team works with any student in such a situation to make the best decision under the new circumstances.

After graduation from TWT, students may continue in an ongoing alumni group (Core Group), or take more advanced programs with Thomas, such as the Collective Trauma Facilitator training. Some may qualify to enter an Assistant training program. Upon completing TWT, established practitioners in the helping professions may apply to continue their studies with Thomas in the Collective Trauma Facilitator Training (CTFT) training. In this program, practitioners will expand their skills in collective trauma integration work and group facilitation. After the CTFT training, an additional 2-year internship phase allows new facilitators to apply their skills in assisting with Collective Trauma Integration Processes (CTIPs), facilitating International Labs, and other projects. The CTFT training will only be open to those who complete TWT, by application, after graduation from the program. Facilitating both small and large groups is a very advanced skill and requires mastery at many different levels.

We recommend you attend or watch the recording of the Introductory Session, which will provide an overview of the curriculum and program format. You’ll also hear from mentors and former students and have an opportunity to ask questions.
