Over the past four decades, William has served as a negotiation adviser and mediator in conflicts ranging from the Cold War to Venezuela to the Middle East. Recently, William has served as a senior advisor to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in helping to bring an end to the last and longest-running war in the Americas.

He is a co-founder of the Pocket Project, a global initiative whose mission is to integrate and heal collective trauma and reduce its effects worldwide.

What You Will Learn

Thomas and William will guide you to:

  • Examine the interconnectedness of world events and our inner experience
  • Illuminate the personal and collective shadows underlying conflicts
  • Understand the influence of collective and intergenerational trauma in perpetuating conflict and how to begin healing now
  • Explore how global social witnessing, taking the ‘third side’, and other foundational skills can help us manage collective trauma without dissociating.
  • Map your social environment to better see the real influences in your personal community
  • Assess social technologies in relation to global change and as a mirror for spiritual competencies

An Innovative and Collaborative Learning Experience

This course is a unique opportunity to become part of an in-depth and deeply personal exploration with two leading experts, who will lead a profound inquiry into the root causes of conflicts and their resolution in ways that may surprise you. 

Together, we will explore an exciting and emerging field that blends spiritual development, contemplative practices, psychology, collective healing, mediation, negotiation, and conflict resolution. This course curriculum will also have enough flexibility to allow for collective inquiry and creative discovery into the structured topics as well as space to discuss new and relevant current topics/events as they arise.

Participants will be encouraged to apply these techniques to current challenges in their lives and to bring questions to Thomas, William, and fellow students through the Q&A sessions, triads, discussion groups, and an online community.


"Today, through technology, we have all been transformed into global citizens."


"Listening can be a chain reaction in which each person who is genuinely listened to feels naturally inspired to listen to the next."
