Workshop

Celebrate Life Festival

Restoring a Fragmented World

Aug 12 - Aug 17 2018 Rhinebeck, NY
Join a dynamic community guided by pioneering mystical teacher Thomas Hübl, founder of the Academy of Inner Science.

Trauma affects everyone in some way or another. We all know there is too much suffering in the world, along with ever-increasing divisions and widespread discord. But are there effective, compassionate ways to deal with trauma and fragmentation in the world—and in our lives?

For a decade and a half, thousands of people have gathered in Europe at the renowned Celebrate Life Festival for a profound immersion in human and cultural development, global transformation, and collective healing. This year at Omega, the Celebrate Life Festival comes to the United States for the first time.

Join a dynamic community of innovators dedicated to becoming answers to the questions that arise in this era of polarization and possibility. Guided by pioneering mystical teacher Thomas Hübl, founder of the Academy of Inner Science, along with guest teachers, artists, and musicians, we creatively engage in a deep inquiry into the profound challenges of our time. We explore ways to restore ourselves and others in a fragmented world, heal collective trauma, and cultivate our relationship to the sacred in daily life.

Festival begins Sunday evening.
