Celebrate Life Festival
The Celebrate Life Festival arose from an impulse to utilize spiritual practice as means of initiating a cultural shift towards restoration and global health.
The Celebrate Life Festival began in Germany in 2004, and has since grown to become one of the largest consciousness events throughout Europe. Founded by spiritual teacher and modern mystic Thomas Hübl, this annual festival is renowned for its inspiring and healing atmosphere. Every year, thousands of creative thinkers and innovators from around the globe come together to participate in personal spiritual practice, create a strong sense of group coherence, and incubate new ways of forming our cultural fabric.
International experts, speakers, and artists across multiple disciplines have taken the stage to contribute their work at Celebrate Life Festival. Guest speakers for past events include Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Michael Laitman, Gerald Hüther, Ken Wilber, Scilla Elworthy, Jean Houston, Tami Simon, Peter Levine, and William Ury. Through experiential workshops and facilitator-led practices, Celebrate Life fosters a nurturing and enriching environment for a deeper sense of connection with the inner and outer world.
Celebrate Life Festival 2019
The Celebrate Life Festival 2019 will take place from 26 July to 4 August 2019 at the Hof Oberlethe in Wardenburg, near Oldenburg, in Northern Germany. This year’s theme is: HOME – Being at Home in a changing world.
“Only those who are at home in themselves are ready for change.” Thomas Hübl
For ten days, everything will revolve around the experience and research of the complex term, Home, in its many facets. The title of the festival results from the German term “Heimat“, for which we have chosen “Home” in English. “Heimat” is difficult to translate into many languages, because it does not only contain the origin, but the whole attitude towards life.
At the Festival in 2019, Thomas Hübl and the guest speakers will explore the question of how we humans, as cultural beings, continually recreate home in our consciousness in three modules. Then home is not a counter trend to globalisation, but the experience of a global understanding of home with a natural sense of responsibility for people, the earth and the pressing problems of our time.
Celebrate Life Festival 2018: Restoring a Fragmented World
In 2018, the first U.S.-based Celebrate Life Festival was held at Omega Institute in New York from August 12-17. The Celebrate Life Festival 2018 program was rich and diverse. Whether you came alone, as a couple, or with your family – you quickly experienced yourself as a part of a living, creative community. Participants were inspired by a variety of teachers and entered into lively exchanges with many different people. The program gave opportunities to develop entirely new perspectives and to experience expanded horizons. People were invited to learn more about their individual shadow, to transform limiting patterns, and become an active part of a new “Culture of We.”
The multifaceted program included various offerings of meditation, movement, individual process work, lectures, workshops, and collective processes, as well as artistic performances and dance evenings.
The Festival will once again be held in the U.S in August, 2020. We hope to see you there!
