Celebrate Life Festival
The Celebrate Life Festival arose from an impulse to utilize spiritual practice as a means of initiating a cultural shift towards restoration and global health.
One of the most popular and dynamic consciousness events in Europe, the 2020 Celebrate Life Festival will be held in the United States for only the second time in its 17-year history. The festival will take place in Rhinebeck, New York at the nonprofit Omega Retreat Center in the beautiful Hudson Valley.
Founded by spiritual teacher and modern mystic Thomas Hübl, this annual festival is renowned for its inspiring and healing atmosphere. Every year, hundreds 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 at past festivals have include Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Michael Laitman, Gerald Hüther, Ken Wilber, Scilla Elworthy, Jean Houston, Tami Simon, Peter Levine, William Ury and more.
This year, we’ll explore our roots – from the genealogy of where we come from to the deep-seated trauma and emotional resonance of our ancestral history – opening up new possibilities for our future.
“Knowing where you’re coming from has an effect on where your life is going. Looking into the past is like opening your way forward.” – Thomas Hübl
This 5-day immersive experience combines spiritual practice with engaging talks, musical performances, guided movement and meditation, plus interactive group practices for collective restoration and community building. Celebrate Life fosters a nurturing and enriching environment for a deeper sense of connection with the inner and outer world.
The Festival is a powerful vessel for personal and cultural transformation. Join with kindred spirits from across the globe to invite new possibilities for growth and evolution.
Past Celebrate Life Festivals
“Only those who are at home in themselves are ready for change.” Thomas Hübl
2019: Being at Home in a Changing World
The Celebrate Life Festival 2019 took place from 26 July to 4 August 2019 at Hof Oberlethe near Oldenburg, in Northern Germany.
For ten days, everything revolved 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 whichwe 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 explored 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 globalization, 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.
Whether attending alone, as a couple, or with family – people quickly experienced themselves as a part of a living, creative community. Participants were inspired by a variety of teachers and entered into lively exchanges. 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.”
