Discover the essential transformative practices, tools and teachings to fully awaken your spiritual potential and live as the full expression of who you are, amidst the pressures and challenges of “real life.”
If you’ve had a taste of awakening, you know in your heart the kind of life that is possible – that is waiting for you – when you finally break the hypnotic trance of the ego, with its endless projections and fears, and start living every day rooted in the expansive freedom, presence and truth of your authentic self.
Yet, no matter how many times you may have tasted the bliss of awakening, the greatest spiritual challenge of our times is to integrate and sustain this enlightened awareness beyond the meditation cushion and yoga mat and into the trenches of your “real life.”
It’s easy to see how the ever-increasing pace and stress of modern life pulls you off your center and back into the conditioned and often neurotic, ego mind.
But what many people don’t realize is that there is an even bigger obstacle to living an authentically awakened life in the 21st century.
You see, most of us have been “duped,” so to speak, into believing that spiritual practices that were designed for life in a monastery, thousands of years ago, are still effective to fully awaken us in our postmodern, consumer culture, technology-driven world.
Clearly, they are not.
If these ancient traditions and practices were truly sufficient, where are all of the awakened beings that these traditions have produced?
Consider this deeply and it will become abundantly clear.
Sure, these ancient practices will help you to relax and give you a greater sense of peace and centeredness. But if you actually want to awaken to the full expression of who you really are, they will leave you wanting, or worse, satiated just enough to be complacent.
Now, we certainly don’t mean to “throw out the baby with the bathwater” and say that these millennia-old traditions and practices don’t have tremendous value, because they obviously do.
We are standing on the shoulders of giants, after all, and each tradition and practice has been an invaluable evolutionary stepping stone to get us where we are today.
But what we are saying – and this may sound somewhat controversial – is that these ancient practices alone are not sufficient to liberate your full potential while you are still immersed in the consumer-driven “marketplace” of our modern world.
If the above statement is in fact true, then the question remains...
What are the most effective practices and techniques to live an authentically awakened life in the 21st century?
Experience the transmission of a deeply awakened spiritual teacher and the support of a conscious community of sincere practitioners to bring
forth the best of who you are and raise
the consciousness of our world.
One of the leading spiritual luminaries that’s bringing new light to this important issue is the internationally renowned mystic and spiritual teacher, Thomas Huebl.
If you have heard Thomas speak you’ll know what we’re referring to, and if you don’t know Thomas yet then you’re in for a real treat.
Thomas is one of the fastest rising stars in modern spirituality, among both sincere practitioners and thought leaders alike.
His down-to-earth approach to a living, holistic spirituality combined with his uncompromising clarity and relentless commitment to help others fully awaken makes Thomas one of the most unique and engaging teachers of our time.
Beyond Thomas’ teachings and powerful approach to spiritual transformation in everyday life, he exudes a clarity of presence and transmission in his teachings that is a rare treasure to experience and behold.
Thomas’ intuitive style of teaching and working with others cuts like a laser light to the essence of the matter.
What You'll Discover in These 9 Weeks
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 12:00pm Pacific (except March 25 at 1pm US Pacific) .
In this 9-week transformational course, Thomas will skillfully guide you through the fundamental spiritual skills and competencies that you’ll need to fully awaken your expanded presence and awareness in the fast-paced “marketplace” of our post-modern world.

While not mandatory, your practice will be assisted and advanced with this additional bonus feature, empowering you to come out with more enduring and stable shifts in your awareness.
Plus Powerful Mentoring Support
Additionally, Thomas will have his most advanced students play an active role in this course. While there can be a tendency to focus just on the singular spiritual teacher, this aspect of engagement with other advanced practitioners is particularly helpful in integrating and embodying the shifts, often clarifying distinctions and helping you to work through places of challenge on your path with more support.
Not only will you have the regularly scheduled calls with Thomas, you’ll also be able to attend additional smaller group coaching calls with Thomas’ senior students
The purpose of these group calls is to give you the opportunity to engage more actively and intensively in the work in a more intimate container with the support of one of Thomas’ senior students. The smaller groups will provide a place for each participant to share experiences and insights, ask questions, and explore more deeply the impact the content of the course and the teachings from Thomas may be having on your life. We believe these groups will provide an important support and holding for the powerful and inspiring material coming through the teachings.

These bonus sessions are being offered to further complement what you’ll learn in the course and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
Shadow Aspects of the Awakening Process
Audio dialogue with Thomas Huebl, Tami Simon, Sally Kempton and Stephen Dinan
Awakening is often depicted as an opening to the love and light within us but the truth is that real awakening is an embrace of ALL of who we are. In this pioneering dialogue, Stephen Dinan (CEO of The Shift Network) will host as Thomas is joined by Sally Kempton (one of today’s most respected respected spiritual teachers) and Tami Simon (CEO of Sounds True), for an exploration of the shadow dimensions of awakening: what we need to see in ourselves, the process of shadow integration, and observing the shadow in our search for enlightenment. This is bound to be a thought-provoking dialogue that helps you avoid many pitfalls on the path.
Sally Kempton has been practicing and teaching meditation and spiritual philosophy for nearly 40 years. A long-time disciple of spiritual master Swami Muktananda, she served as a swami, or monk in a Vedic tradition for 20 years.

Authentic Awakening of the Feminine: How Western Women Can Heal and Enlighten Our World
Audio Session with Diane Musho Hamilton
In this illuminating 60-minute session, Thomas and Diane explore the deeper meaning of the Dalai Lama’s proclamation that “the world will be saved by the western woman” and how this prophecy may unfold in the years ahead.
Diane also shares about her unique spiritual journey as an ordained Zen Buddhist monk, a traditionally masculine path, and explore the benefits and limitations of the ancient practices as well as the challenges facing monastic traditions in the post-modern world. If you’re a western woman on the spiritual path or in relationship with one (whether romantic or platonic), you’ll benefit greatly from the wisdom and inspiration of this rare dialogue.
Diane Musho Hamilton is an exceptionally gifted mediator, group facilitator, and one of the authentic contemporary spiritual teachers of our time. Combining decades of innovation in conflict resolution with an enthusiasm for life, she knows how to address the challenges of our modern experience with an uncommon spiritual perspective. With extraordinary warmth, depth and insight, she encourages us to consciously evolve beyond old and limited ideas of who we are so that we might discover our own unique expression of wisdom and of compassion in this time.
The Esoteric Anatomy of the Heart
Audio Dialogue with Thomas and Terry Patten
In this special session, Thomas talks with Terry Patten about the function of the heart in our subtle anatomy, and the nature of the intelligence of the heart in the awakening of higher consciousness. What is the healthy and unhealthy relationship of the head and the heart? How do they relate to the base and to the intuitive centers in and above the head? How does the intelligence of the heart help you navigate the many challenges of our unique time in history?
Terry Patten co-developed Integral Life Practice with Ken Wilber and a core team at Integral Institute. He hosts the acclaimed online teleseminar series Beyond Awakening: The Future of Spiritual Practice where he has engaged leading-edge conversations about cultural transformation with dozens of the best-known thinkers and spiritual teachers of our time.

He was the senior writer and co-author, with Ken Wilber, of Integral Life Practice: A 21st-Century Blueprint for Physical Health, Emotional Balance, Mental Clarity, and Spiritual Awakening.
What People Are Saying About Thomas Huebl...
Thomas Huebl is an exceptional teacher, integrally well-grounded and communicatively gifted. His Authentic Awakening [teaching] is just that – an authentic transmission of the awakened mind. Highly recommended!
– Ken Wilber, Integral Philosopher and Author
Thomas Huebl is an extraordinary, mesmerizing teacher. There is a mysterious soul connection he makes with his students that empowers and reveals profound truth. I love the way he helps us come from the future as we deal with the present. It’s just the way I think too. I admire him greatly.
– Barbara Marx Hubbard, Renowned Futurist, Author and Speaker
Thomas Huebl is a master teacher of interactive awakening. His gift for leading people into awakened communal space is a major contribution to the contemporary spiritual world.
– Sally Kempton, Spiritual Teacher and Author
Thomas is the “real deal.” I feel like I am in Divine Presence when I am with Thomas. Further, he invites us to develop our skill and senses to go deeper into We space. I love his sense of humor, the small group exercises and the deep work that Thomas leads and encourages in our small groups.”
– Michael Ray
What a relief to come across a teacher who is fully holding the transcended space known as enlightenment and also working with people on the personal and interpersonal levels. He has an incredible gift for reading people’s energetic fields and an ability to communicate effectively where the energy is blocked. The whole approach is that the energy field of the gathering is the “higher intelligence,” so the focus of the meetings is not so much on his individual state. This is quite different from a lot of teachers I have met who like to present themselves as the main event rather than a facilitator in co-created field.
Thomas’ approach opened the door for me to go back and start looking and dealing with areas of the personal development that were stuck, areas that I was not particularly conscious of. Since meeting him I have let go of my fixation with holding onto non-dual states and have become willing to go back and work on personal issues, as a result of this process deeper spaces seem to be continually opening. I am very grateful to have come across this work.
I felt deeply seen by Thomas: my structure, my shadows and my potential. Under his guidance, I saw that all of it was OK, all of it acceptable, all of it a step towards more development, more integration, more contribution. His approach is direct, intense, yet he knows when to be gentle, patient, where there is a wound or when to respect that the best thing to do now is to stop. He speaks from what is present now. In the sangha he creates around him he teaches and makes us realize that we all have these abilities to deeply see others and open up to be seen. It takes commitment and practice, but that’s why we’re here. Tasting this deep level of connection with myself and with others was a revelation to me. That’s the new humanity I want to be part of and co-create.
Thomas Hübl opens the gates of an amazing and powerful WE that is alive and that organically moves where it needs to move tapping with intensity in the Unknown. I feel at home. I deeply resonate with what Thomas is helping us to trust. I profoundly trust in the space he creates to make Creativity, God to express itself through me; with a knowing that I am in the right field where I merge with more of us in a shared commitment to keep evolving, expanding and to keep designing a more evolved, All New Universe. Thomas Hübl is Spirituality in High Definition.
– Yolanda Valencia
Thomas shows us what is possible in becoming more authentic, transparent, and how to relate with each other in ways that allow the shadows to be revealed and released. He is a true embodiment of our potential capacities and masterfully guides the group towards greater freedom and human potential. His ability to transmit deep wisdom and facilitate the group field with precision and clarity is truly remarkable. In 5 days many participants gained awareness of shadow material and began to transform in significant ways. The group field was open, playful, and supportive. I have been on the spiritual journey for many years and am a teacher and psychotherapist. I was inspired by Thomas and am grateful to have experienced his teaching.
Thomas provides a clear, clean, entrance to exploring interpersonal space, deeply connecting, seeing, being seen, and approaching shadow, all in an integrated format. The container of the group is profoundly supportive and allows both personal and interpersonal openings and growth. I’ve also seen that this work keeps on growing months after the retreat for myself and others whom I’ve seen.
– Rebecca Stauffer

More Praise for Thomas Huebl...
The work of Thomas is like a missing link, bringing together the experience of mere being and yet having an explicit focus on evolution of mankind, consciousness also on a collective level, including all worldly aspects. It is a great pleasure for me to see people in his ongoing groups develop on a broad level, unfolding their potentials, taking responsibility beyond their personal realms and being a gift to the world.
– Viele Grübe Clara
Thomas gave me is a genuine curiosity to find out who I am and what can I be. He is a high tech spiritual teacher. His words are like a laser cutting the nonsense of my conditioning, they touched my heart in a gentle and embracing way. It feels good to be committed with my spiritual practices because now they are integrated in my day to day. I feel more grounded in myself, more relax in my spiritual path and I feel a deep gratitude because my spiritual flame is burning big time!
– Christina Madariaga
I’ve just recently been introduced to Thomas’ work and have had the honor of participating in a circle devoted to Transparent Communication. I’ve been meditating for 40 years, studied integral philosophy for 20 years and been deeply studying Sri Aurobindo for the last ten and this work with transparency is the living vehicle for everything I’ve worked with. All the theories come alive in present time. Everything comes together, tangible, transmissible, applicable to life as it is. It is truly a stunningly simple and appropriate model.
– Kathryn Ehnebuske
Thomas’ work gives the possibility to join the transpersonal competence, the integration with shadow work and developing potentials in the different possibilities of intelligence. The intensive practice with ‘transparent communication’ which works also intra-, inter- and transpersonal gives us an excellent tool to be more awake and present in our daily life and creativity expression. “There awakes a deep love and joy in my heart when I realize that God emit his sparks through more then me and you.”
– Susanne Ahlendorf
I cannot imagine a more authentically transformative path than the mystical principles and teachings that I have learned with Thomas and have now begun to embody. The impact of this in my life and work has been and continues to be explosive. These are the teachings we need for ourselves and for our societies of today and tomorrow.
– Stephen Busby
