- Earth, isn't this what you want? To arise in us, invisible?
- Is it not your dream, to enter us so wholly
- there's nothing left outside us to see?
- What, if not transformation, is your deepest purpose?
- ~Rainer Maria Rilke

- Do you dream of a future in which we all work together toward what matters most?
- Do you yearn for a richer sense of community in your work environment or personal life?
- Have you seen the power of groups to do profound harm - but also sensed their potential to create lasting positive change?
At Presencing Collective Wisdom, a weekend with contemporary spiritual teacher Thomas Hübl and Meridian University President Aftab Omer, we gathered to explore the possibilities offered by collective transformative learning. We considered the dynamics underlying collective harmdoing; engaged in practices connected to social healing and reconciliation; and practiced how nurturing presence and awareness in our daily lives can help to awaken social intelligence and collaboration.
In this experiential inquiry, we:
- Discovered ways to harness the power of the collective to build stronger organizations and communities.
- Developed tools to create more cooperative peer groups and families.
- Discussed the path toward a global culture that fulfills Earth's destiny through the strength of collective wisdom.
- Found ways to transcend the ego-centric world and create new "we-cultures".
- Established practices of collective presencing to actualize love, creativity, and wise action within relationships, communities, and societies.
Video highlights are coming soon from the four days of contemplation, collaboration, and collective inspiration!
Thomas Hübl is a contemporary spiritual teacher. His work integrates the essence of the great wisdom traditions, scientific learning, and personal experiences. Rooted in an uncompromising clarity which leads to the birth of new 'we-cultures' and societal transformation, Thomas has led healing events in Germany and Israel that have considered the collective shadow of the holocaust and World War II.
Aftab Omer is President and Core Faculty at Meridian University, where transformative learning is at the core of the degree programs. Aftab’s research has focused on the emergence of human capacities within transformative learning communities and the role of Cultural Leadership in the evolution of culture. His work includes assisting organizations in tapping the creative potentials of conflict, diversity, and complexity.
