A 7-week Practicum in Advanced Contemplative & Prayer Practices
With Pioneering Contemporary Spiritual Teacher &
Internationally Renowned Mystic
Thomas Huebl
Live Video and Audio Training Starts
Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Do you want to enter more blissful and expansive states of spiritual awakening AND become more grounded, present and
effective in the world?

What if your meditation practice brought you more than the usual cycle of “peak” experiences followed by the disappointment of returning to everyday reality and feeling like nothing much has changed?

The next level of meditation practice means you can learn to expand your conscious capacity for higher insight, subtle perceptions and spiritual realization — while at the same time navigating your daily life with more presence, clarity and love.

It is a meditative path for urban mystics, integral yogis and modern spiritual practitioners with careers, families and other worldly responsibilities, who still have a burning desire for transformation and enlightenment.

The good news is that such a path can be even more accelerated and powerful than the traditional contemplative path for monastics and yogis — IF you know how to access the higher states, integrate your practice into your daily life and work with natural rhythms of fiery engagement, calm witnessing and deep restoration.

Just like any endeavor, meditation has different levels of mastery and depth. There are gross, subtle and causal levels of experience that need to be navigated, and each requires balance, integration and discernment so we don’t become spaced out, inflated or hypersensitive.

We need to discern when we are meditating too much or in the wrong way. And when we’re avoiding the challenges of relationship, work or life.

As you learn to master more advanced stages of meditation, you can start to embody your spiritual awakening for real, embracing the sweetness of stillness, heights of bliss, and intensity of shadow work at the same time you bring presence and awareness to your daily tasks.

Advanced meditation practices can thus be the rocket fuel to propel you into an extraordinary life of love, meaning and joy.

Yet, ultimately, the spiritual path is not just about attaining higher and more blissful experiences but about building the competencies that allow you to move through life in a wiser, more loving, and aware way — even when faced with all the challenges and stressors of the modern world.

In this special course with spiritual teacher Thomas Huebl, you’ll receive precise insights and practices that help you enter, navigate and integrate advanced states, as well as ground these openings in your daily life and relationships.

Thomas will share fascinating examples from his own journey of awakening that will inspire your own, as well as help you avoid common pitfalls for advanced seekers.

If you’ve ever felt that you’re “too sensitive” to the world’s denser vibrations or that it is sometimes difficult to be around “less conscious” people, Thomas will show you how you are probably getting too attached to higher consciousness while subtly rejecting the “lower” — which actually cripples your practice.

When you practice advanced states of meditation correctly, competence, bliss and responsibility can all go hand-in-hand.

The leading edge of meditation is about integrating light and shadow, ascent and embodiment, inner exploration with full outer engagement and solo time with spiritual community. It requires an understanding of inner body awareness, subtle energy competence, and how to integrate psychology and spirituality.

On this leading edge, we enter into one coherent dance of awakening that becomes an offering to the Divine within and outside us.

The Power of an Authentic Teacher

If you’re not yet familiar with Thomas, this rare mystical guide has been blazing a path of 21st century spiritual practice and helping thousands of students around the world to live their awakening in the midst of a complex world.

Thomas is one of the fastest rising stars in modern spirituality, among sincere practitioners and thought leaders alike.
His down-to-earth approach to living, uncompromising clarity and commitment to help others fully awaken make Thomas one of the most engaging teachers of our time.

His unique approach to spiritual transformation in everyday life exudes a clarity of presence and transmission. Intuitive and direct, his teachings cut like a laser light to the essence of the matter.

If you are called to an authentically awakened life, this is the online program for you. Thomas will explore gross, subtle and causal meditation practices, as well as leading-edge spiritual topics like subtle body competence and global “social witnessing.”

You’re in for a fascinating new adventure in consciousness, in which you
will learn:

  • How to integrate deep spiritual openings into your daily life
  • To access the inner light that connects you to higher intelligence
  • Practices that help expand the energy of your lower energy centers for more stability as you open to the “heights”
    of realization
  • How to navigate shadow material that invariably arises in
    your practice
  • Meditation techniques for inner balance in a fast-moving world
  • How to cleanse your inner world on a regular basis
  • Learn to distinguish the different levels of stillness
  • The potential to work with collective fields of karma, energy
    and intention
  • How to metabolize and transform karma
  • How to remedy becoming ungrounded, vague and unfocused
  • The importance of embodiment and relationships in the next level of meditation
  • To transcend “me-focused” meditation practice and recognize your part in the whole

If you’ve had a taste of authentic awakening, you know in your heart the kind of life that is possible when you finally start living every day rooted in the expansive freedom, presence and truth of your authentic self.

Thomas can guide you to open the higher realms, navigate common challenges and integrate your awakening in your daily life, leading to the fulfillment you’ve hungered for.

Greater Connection through Live
Streaming Video

As a special addition to this course, Thomas will be live-streaming video of his teaching sessions, so that you can have an even more powerful connection and transmission. This live video connection will be easy to use and will greatly increase your learning and transformation.

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

In this 7-week transformational program, you’ll learn the spiritual skills and competencies to take your daily meditation practice to the next level — expanding areas you have been working in and addressing those you’ve yet to experience.

Each weekly LIVE contemplation and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to sustain your awakening.

Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 12:00pm Pacific.

Module 1: Laying the Groundwork for Advanced Meditation & Prayer:
Shifting from Gross to Subtle to Causal Levels (October 7)

In this first session, Thomas will illumine the main principles of meditation, prayer and contemplation and how they relate to two major states of being: Stillness and Movement. He’ll also describe the four dimensions of human consciousness and how to begin consciously shifting in and out of them when you’re in prayer, meditation and contemplation.

During the first live session, you’ll:

  • Find powerful practices for living a meditative life in the everyday world.
  • Discover the main principles of meditation, contemplation and prayer.
  • Come to understand the two major principles of spiritual development: Stillness and Movement.
  • Learn how to recognize and shift among four dimensions of human consciousness — gross, subtle, causal and nondual.

Module 2: Cleansing Meditation for Psychological Health (October 14)

Just as antibiotics were a breakthrough for modern medicine, meditation is a breakthrough for the stressors of modern life that continually endanger your body, mind and spirit and affect society overall. Unexpressed energies and accumulated karma need to be cleansed. Advanced meditation help you release inner distress that leads to burnout as well as the breakdown of our social systems. It’s like “taking a shower” for our inner and outer worlds!

In this second live training with Thomas, you will:

  • Find meditation techniques for inner balance in a fast-moving world.
  • Learn how to cleanse your inner world on a regular basis.
  • Discover potent insights rooted in new and ancient wisdom that can enable you to meet life’s challenges without losing your center.

Module 3: Developing Inner
Body Competency
(October 21)

Inner body awareness is one of the major principles of advanced meditation practice. In Week 3, Thomas will guide you through your physical, emotional and mental selves to develop and refine your capacity for greater mental and emotional clarity to anchor you more fully in everyday life.

In this session, you will:

  • Develop “inner body” competencies that help anchor you in everyday life.
  • Begin to relate to life through this inner body awareness and, as a result, experience more presence in all of your activities.
  • Learn how to receive information from your inner body that gives you more emotional and mental clarity.

Module 4: From Stillness to Inner Spaciousness to Deep Absorption
(October 28)

In Week 4, Thomas will guide you in dropping into the state of inner spaciousness and becomeing aware of ever deeper levels of absorption that can eventually lead to a breakthrough in non-dual awareness. He’ll also explore causal consciousness and the different stages of stillness. You will:

  • Discover how stillness begins with inner space.
  • Learn how to distinguish the different levels of stillness.
  • Work with the subtle qualities of absorption and causal consciousness.
  • Come to understand that “not knowing” is, in fact, your highest source of wisdom.
  • Find powerful practices for navigating challenges on the way to inner spaciousness.

Module 5: Entering Realms of Higher Knowing & Light (November 4)

What is subtle, higher consciousness? And how does light determine the content and quality of our future? Thomas will answer these profound questions and guide you in a powerful “light” meditation practice, helping you to open a channel of deeper knowing, inspiration and interconnectedness. You will:

  • Access the inner light that connects to higher intelligence.
  • Explore your higher self and the different levels of higher consciousness.
  • Experience an acceleration of evolution through inner light.
  • Discover the effects light meditation can have on time and, particularly, on the future.

Module 6: Global Social Witnessing: Opening to the Heart of Humanity (November 11)

Meditation and contemplation are paths to interior consciousness and a fully open heart that is the source of profound change in human consciousness. The practice of ”global social witnessing” is key to creating a world that is awake and effectively responsive to events. It allows for beneficial expression of emotional energy and prevents the accumulation of more karma.

In this session with Thomas, you will:

  • Build your capacity for global social witnessing through interior awareness.
  • Begin to transcend “me-focused” meditation practice and recognize your part in the whole.
  • Help awaken social consciousness to more presence and healing.

Module 7: Applying Your Meditation in Everyday Life & Navigating
Common Pitfalls
(November 18)

As you access more blissful realms that can be the fruits of advanced meditation, it’s easy to lose groundedness and focus in daily life. In this final live session, Thomas will show you how to navigate the pitfalls associated with higher levels of consciousness — and how to actually use these challenges as touchstones for your awakening.

In this last session, you’ll:

  • Learn to live a truly contemplative life in the midst of the perceived limitations of others and situations that may seem “banal” or a waste of time.
  • Increase your ability to bring awareness to everyday reality so that you are grounded and focused even in the midst of new higher states of being.
  • Come to recognize and avoid the pitfalls of your meditative practice.
  • Develop a Sangha to continue growing your competencies for your own — and the world’s — awakening.

Optional Small Group Practice Sessions

The support of exploring what is learned in small groups is one of Thomas’ foundational tools, so we will give you the option to connect with others and set up regular times for meeting to deepen into your learning together. This small group time is vital to truly integrate the awakening shifts that you will undergo and our staff will help you to find and establish triads, ideally near to you geographically. 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, as an added bonus 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, but you’ll also be able to attend additional smaller group mentoring calls with Thomas’ senior students. We believe these groups will provide important support and a compassionate container for the powerful and inspiring material coming through the teachings.

These senior student-led mentoring calls will give you the opportunity to engage more actively and intensively in the work, share experiences and insights, ask questions and explore Thomas’s teachings and their impact more deeply.

What Graduates of Thomas’ Courses
are Saying...

This course is truly amazing! I have been going through a ’dark night of the soul’ and was struggling to meditate, even though I have had a committed, consistent practice for 25 years or so. My meditation practice has been renewed and I look forward again to ’sitting’ with whatever comes, no matter how dark it may seem... Authentic Awakening has been, for me, the light at the end of the tunnel... I have found my heart for life again and I am grateful beyond words for the practices, insights and the inspiration of this clear-hearted teacher and sweet-hearted community. Blessed Be.
– Arlene LaMarche, Nelson, British Columbia, Canada

Since this course, I am less likely to be stuck in a point of view, more likely to see everything as a process, including myself, as an ever-changing flowing multi-dimensional consciousness. Am recommitted to sitting meditation. Utterly loved hearing how sensitively Thomas answered questions.
– Clare Rosenfield, Hartsdale, NY

The higher level of consciousness reached through the course made me stronger for a difficult life situation I had to face recently. The perception of me related to a higher purpose serving the whole, gives me the possibility to let go and to accept what comes in my way. The consciousness allows me to identify with calm and strength and to trust my inner self. This makes me stronger for choices, especially for those which are far from my usual comfort zone or usual patterns.
– Katrin, Paris, France

The support for my meditation practice, guidance process and accent on energy fields and connecting with them were all invaluable to me. I tend to feel alone and then not reach out. I really challenged myself to reach out and give and receive support. Very growthful for me to do that.
– Georgina Batchelor, Nelson, British Columbia, Canada

I really enjoyed Thomas’ course because he speaks so clearly, concisely and in a way that is understandable for difficult psychological, spiritual or metaphysical topics. He doesn’t use academic language to reveal the point — mostly everyday language.
– Jeffrey Lapointe, Warsaw, Poland

This course has inspired in me a deeper inquiry into what does it mean for me to awaken, where am I unconscious, and to use the tools (meditation, transparency, sangha and friends) to continue to inspire and support deepening into my role in our evolving humanity.
– Eschara, Pender Island, British Columbia, Canada

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

More Praise for 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.
– Peter

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.
– Marielle

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.
– Eva

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

The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
