john a. powell, PhD
Professor of law, professor of African American studies and ethnic studies
In the West, and in the United States in particular, we live largely isolated and separated lives. On fundamental levels, we feel a sense of separation from spirit and the earth, and our minds and bodies are viewed as separate entities. Then, in daily life, society perpetuates the felt sense that we are separate from each other based on race, gender, religion, and so much more. In this presentation, Dr. john a. powell explores how this feeling of separation both is made worse by trauma and can be a cause of trauma itself, offering clear guidelines for how we can build bridges back to belonging.
Dr. john a. powell is director of the Othering and Belonging Institute and professor of law, African American studies, and ethnic studies at the University of California, Berkeley. He was previously the executive director at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at the Ohio State University and, prior to that, the founder and director of the Institute on Race and Poverty at the University of Minnesota. Dr. powell formerly served as the national legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union. He is a cofounder of the Poverty & Race Research Action Council, and he serves on the boards of several national and international organizations. Dr. powell led the development of an “opportunity-based” model that connects affordable housing to education, health, health care, and employment, and he is well known for his work developing the frameworks of “targeted universalism” and “othering and belonging” to effect equity-based interventions. He has taught at numerous law schools, including Harvard and Columbia University. His latest book is Racing to Justice: Transforming Our Conceptions of Self and Other to Build an Inclusive Society.
Founder of the Academy of Inner Science
We often think of trauma as a personal experience, but there is also a collective dimension that we are most often unaware of. Thomas Hübl will explore how these entangled traumas live inside each of us and how we can come together to consciously work on healing our collective traumas—both the crises we currently face and the traumas inherited from generations past. By learning to cultivate collective presence and group coherence, we can break through hidden trauma layers and unlock our higher capacities for collective intelligence, insight, and innovation.
Thomas Hübl is a teacher, author, and founder of the Academy of Inner Science. His teaching integrates the core insights of the great wisdom traditions with the discoveries of contemporary science. Hübl’s work combines somatic awareness practices, advanced meditative practices, and transformational processes that address both individual and collective trauma, opening the potential for growth and healing. Since 2004, Hübl has worked with tens of thousands of people worldwide through workshops, multiyear training programs, and online courses. He has guided large-scale healing events that have brought together thousands of Germans and Israelis to acknowledge, face, and heal the cultural shadow left by the Holocaust. He is also the founder of the nonprofit Pocket Project, which aims to increase awareness and understanding of collective trauma and reduce its effects. Hübl’s book Healing Collective Trauma will be published in fall 2020.
