FAQS

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

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

  • The U.S. Group 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 Group 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. Group

See the full schedule and retreat location for the European Group

Note: If any of these retreats cannot be held in person due to events beyond our control such as Covid-19 and other related 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 two 4-day and one 3-day online retreat, which both Groups 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 Covid-19 and other related 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.

Those who are new to Thomas Hübl’s work, and those who would like a deeper introduction to determine whether the program is right for them, should register to attend a 2-day introductory workshop with Thomas. Two workshops will be offered:

  • Aug 28-29: online, 2 days x 5 hours per day
  • Oct 9-10: online, 2 days x 5 hours per day
  • Workshop fee: $175 / €145
  • Registration for workshops will open in mid-July

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 27.

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 6-8 weeks of submission. Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full. The U.S. and European Group 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 cohort 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 (CTF) training. This will be a third year of study, where practitioners will expand their skills in collective trauma integration work and group facilitation.

After the CTF training, an additional 2-year supervision phase is offered for new facilitators to apply their skills in assisting with Collective Trauma Integration Processes (CTIPs), facilitating International Labs, and other projects.
The CTF 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. The certification program will offer close supervision and mentorship.

If you intend to pursue the Collective Trauma Facilitator certification after TWT, please indicate this in your application as some spaces will be reserved for those on a CTF track.

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.

You are also invited to attend a live Q&A session held in July, 2021. Dates and times for those sessions will be posted soon.

You may also Contact Us via the online form.

We will use the same set of English FAQs on the home page and the cohort pages – so it will be easy to keep them in sync. It’s ok if some FAQs are specific to one of the programs.
