Celebrate Life Festival 2018
Restoring a Fragmented World
With the guidance of renowned spiritual teacher Thomas Hübl, The Celebrate Life Festival has evolved into a unique, catalytic, and highly acclaimed event. After fourteen years as one of the most popular and dynamic consciousness events in Europe, the Festival will open for the first time here in the United States. In the spirit of creative collaboration, warmed by the mystical fire, we invite you to join us in co-creating a new future for ourselves and the generations to come.
In the company of visionaries, radical creatives, and deeply committed practitioners, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a dynamic field of leading-edge spiritual practice. This year, in response to the intensity of the fragmentation we are experiencing in our world, we will come together to explore essential practices of healing and restoration. The depth of our own personal transformation liberates our capacity to respond creatively and whole-heartedly to the immense collective challenges we are facing.
