Through the marriage of timeless mystical wisdom, psychotherapeutic/somatic practice, and the latest neuroscience, the project is also birthing a powerful methodology that is enabling large group integration and healing processes. We have been working with topics such as colonialism, the holocaust, sexual violence, feminine and masculine dynamics and spiritual abuse.
During the evening Nicholas will speak about the new understanding and the practices that this project is developing, and why it is more important than ever that we include yet extend beyond the framework of individual therapy and development.
The Pocket Project is bringing an inspiring and vital new understanding of the nature and the hidden effects of intergenerational and collective trauma in our cultures.

More About The Pocket Project
The Pocket Project is a global initiative with the goal to contribute to the healing of collective and intergenerational trauma, and to reduce its disruptive effects on our global culture. As a global initiative, it needs an infrastructure to connect the members of the Pocket Groups and Competence Center, the public and researchers. The ‘Lab’ is also needed to share selected and approved research data, knowledge and experiences gained in the Pocket Groups and Competence Centers through the community and public Knowledge Gardens.
On February 19, Thomas Hübl spoke about how we can develop a new understanding of collective trauma and its symptoms, and build the capacity to hold a higher presence – a “pocket” of consciousness – within the traumatized field.
