The trauma response is an intelligent function that life developed over millions of years in order to protect the survival of individuals and collectives. As a protective function, it serves life. However, the parts of life or pockets of energy that have been split off can ultimately threaten the wellbeing of the entire system. In this way, trauma creates internal fragmentation that leads to the manifestation of external fragmentation and ultimately perpetuates itself.
In this workshop, Thomas Hüebl will explore the experiential aspects of individual, ancestral and collective trauma, and illuminate both the overlaps and the distinctions between the three. Together, we will examine how trauma and resourcing intertwine and operate in our unconscious, underlining and forming many of our cultural conceptions. Deepening our understanding of the impact of trauma on us as individuals, on our teams, and our communities is the first step towards an increase in resilience, compassion, vitality and an increased flow of creativity.
If everybody looks through broken glass, then together, we are looking at a world that looks broken. When I notice my crack in my window, and you notice yours, and we start healing our cracks, then we start to look at the world through clear glass. And that’s what trauma healing does. It starts unifying the world.
