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.

The Celebrate Life Festival arose from an impulse to engage spiritual practice as a means of initiating a cultural shift towards restoration and global health. Nourished by a strong desire to give back to the greater community and an authentic assumption of responsibility for global care, this Festival is dedicated to creating new frameworks for social and cultural connection. This year, the proceeds from the Festival will go to support the work of The Pocket Project for Collective and Intergenerational Trauma Integration. The Pocket Project was founded in 2016 to care for one unique client: humanity itself. The project’s mission is to halt the vicious cycle of recurring collective trauma, ultimately integrating and reducing its impact on our global community.
Join the Festival to:
At the Celebrate Life Festival, you’ll be immersed in a high-intensity field that opens you to a radical presence and aliveness. As you practice with others, you’ll find a sense of grounding and stability that expands your capacity for intimacy and innovation. Evening tonings, deep meditative practice, transparent communication, and triad work give you the opportunity to truly embody the transformation catalyzed by the Festival.
The Celebrate Life Festival invites you to dive into a totally new kind of creative space. Through deep explorations of language, movement, and relationship, you become a living incubator for personal and cultural innovation. Profound spiritual teachings alternate with small group practice sessions and inspired conversations between Thomas Hübl, global leaders, visionaries, and participants.
The body is the ground of authentic transformation. Without embodiment, we struggle to fully manifest the gifts of our spiritual practice. At Celebrate Life, a variety of skillful practitioners offer practices to awaken and heal our relationship with the body. These spaces are an invitation for you to experience the heightened aliveness of awareness permeating the body and dissolving the separation between body, mind, and spirit.
Spontaneous creativity, joy, and playfulness abound at the Celebrate Life Festival. Dancing late into the evenings to great DJ’s and live bands, you’ll experience the freedom of radical self-expression. Beyond entertainment, these nights of music and dancing offer you the chance to meet yourself and others in the raw beauty of authentic revelation. A profound sense of intimacy and expansiveness are the sacred gifts of these celebratory spaces.
At the core of the Celebrate Life Festival is the community. We meet on our edges and in our depths, with curiosity, vulnerability, and radical transparency. The environment invites us into a depth of authenticity we may never have experienced before. This is the true possibility of the Celebrate Life Festival: to awaken and heal inside the love and power of this relational field.
