Program 2014

Renaissance of Spirit - Mystical Summer School

Mysticism is the wispering of god.
Thomas Hübl

The Celebrate Life Festival is an international consciousness platform that encourages the exploration and promotion of the foundations for a global consciousness and an awake, sustainable culture.

Every year, Thomas Hübl and his team organize this ten-day benefit event in Northern Germany, at which all speakers and artists appear without charging a fee. The main themes change from year to year. The 2011 Festival shed light on the mystical core to be found in all traditions of wisdom – promoting dialogue between religions, while the focus in 2012 was on global visions. In 2013, the key topic was on relationships and relational intelligence on different levels and this year

Interview with Thomas Hübl about the festival 2014
(click here)

In 2014, we will focus on the mystical principles that underlie the experiences we have in everyday life. Over the course of four modules we will investigate how to live our life more consciously increasing our spiritual competence, deepening our relationships and creating a culture of giving and promoting the dialogue between inner and outer sciences.


Main hall

To make it possible for the Festival participants to immerse themselves fully into the topic, there are four theme modules, which take two days each.

Attunement and alignment: Longing for God – July 25

How is my love for God expressed in everyday life? How can I keep it alive and put it at the centre of my life – again and again? What brings me to the Festival?

Module 1: Mystical principles and spiritual competence – July 26th/27th

How can I develop competence in centering on the Divine, while being present in life – and thereby being a channel for higher levels of intelligence and innovation?

Module 2: Mystical principles of healing – July 28th/29th

How can I deepen my understanding of healing? Wherein lies the opportunity of the shadow? How can a dialog between science and mystic contribute insights to our understanding of the dynamics of life?

Module 3: Mystical principles of relationships – July 30th/31st

How can I awaken in relationship? How can we develop a culture of relationship – as parents, partners, colleagues – that focuses on the divine? How can I dissolve dynamics from the past, so that they do not continue to determine the future?

Modul 4: Mystical principles of a giving culture – August 1st/2nd

How can I strengthen my contact with others so that more intelligence flows between us? How can I open my ego for the affairs of the world? How can we create a cultural context in which giving becomes a priority?

Integration and Outlook: Combining silence and the marketplace – August 3

How do I bring the insights of the Festival into my life, to the marketplace? How can I see to it that I place my love of God at the centre of my everyday life while I am living and loving?

Speakers and Artists

Speakers Main Hall

This year the CLF will turn into a Mystical Summer School with the character of a festival.

The Mystical Principles are not just the subject of the festival, they run through the entire year. The online course „Mystical Principles“ with more than 500 participants has been an essential starting point. So we have a broad basis formed by many participants already immersed and also created by the depth and relatedness to this theme - which is already taking effect. Thomas will take over a great part of the main programme in order to move the Mystical Principles in this profoundness during the festival.

Nevertheless we have also requested guest speakers and we eagerly wait to see who else we can greet at the festival.

Thomas Hübl

Thomas Hübl is a contemporary spiritual teacher of uncompromising clarity, which brings the enlightened potential of a new "Culture of WE" into the light. His workshops and trainings invite people to experience a deeper dimension of self-awareness and individual responsibility. Radical transcendence of ego opens the door to deeply authentic expression, service to the world and stable relationship with the absolute. Experiencing a driving inspiration to evolve, people give their gifts to the world in concrete ways.
He founded the Celebrate Life Festival and has organized and led several large healing events which have brought together thousands of Germans with many Israelis to acknowledge, face, and heal the cultural shadow left by the Holocaust. He founded the Academy of Inner Science whose programs teach not only on personal transcendence, but also active responses to the postmodern challenges of the human condition.

Ken Wilber


Born in 1949 in Oklahoma City, Ken Wilber lived in many places during his school years, due to his father being in the Air Force. With 22 books on spirituality and science, and translations in more than 25 countries, Wilber is now the most translated writer on consciousness studies in the United States. He is seen as an important representative of transpersonal psychology, which emerged in the sixties from humanistic psychology, and which concerns itself explicitly with spirituality. For the fundamental and pioneering nature of his insights, he has been called "the Einstein of consciousness research".
In 2000 he founded the Integral Institute, a think-tank for studying issues of science and society in an integral way.

Ervin László


Ervin László is a Hungarian philosopher of science, systems theorist, integral theorist, originally a classical pianist. He has published about 75 books and over 400 papers, and is editor of World Futures: The Journal of General Evolution. He underscores the importance of developing a holistic perspective on the world and man, an outlook he refers to as "quantum consciousness". In addition to his many writings, Laszlo has also recorded several piano concertos.

In 1993, in response to his experience with the Club of Rome, he founded the Club of Budapest to, in his words, "centre attention on the evolution of human values and consciousness as the crucial factors in changing course — from a race towards degradation, polarization and disaster to a rethinking of values and priorities so as to navigate today's transformation in the direction of humanism, ethics and global sustainability".

The Idea

The Celebrate Life Festival is a platform of consciousness to which many speakers, for no payment, provide excellent contributions that inspire many of the audience to take large steps in their own growth. On the one hand participants develop and grow spiritually, and at the same time different levels of society are influenced. Social and charitable projects around the world are supported by the donations.

On this platform we are concerned with the future of society, so that, seen from a larger perspective also, a Giving takes place. The larger our perspective the more effective a difference we can make in the world. Seen in that light, a massive mutual energy arises at such a large festival as the Celebrate Life Festival.

The radius of consciousness grows

A side product of spiritual development is that people develop a larger consciousness radius. Our spiritual praxis will not always be about us, as with time we become more and more compassionate and encompassing. We start taking care. Not as activists but from an inner need. Our radius of reality expands: initially to the immediate surroundings, then beyond these surroundings to a global and even a universal appreciation.

A healthy spiritual development includes this form of Giving Back that emerges from a natural need.

Festival Tuition

In order to place the Celebrate Life Festival more into the global context of awakening and thereby contributing more - spiritually and financially - we have increased this year's Festival tuition rate.

The Celebrate Life Festival 2014 is reaching the entire world via live-streaming. We want to make a contribution - as an expression of expanded consciousness - to the world. We will support projects and people who - as well as their spiritual development - also have to deal with very existential life and death themes.

Should there be a surplus after deduction of all costs, this will partially go to the financing of next years Celebrate Life Festival 2015 just like this year’s festival was financed with a surplus from the previous year. All additional surplus goes to other non-profit charitable projects.

Charity Event

The Celebrate Life Festival is non-profit orientated, but depends as a charity event on the festival’s contributions and donations from the festival’s participants. All artists and speakers, including Thomas Hübl contribute without remuneration, the entire festival team of approximately 70 people work 10 days long voluntarily.


The festival’s contributions are used for covering the entire costs of the festival organization. In 2013 these included:

Technical and hall facilities (Light/Sound/Livestreaming ect.) 30.000 €
Travel expenses/overnight stays of all speakers/artists 5.000 €
Advertising (Webpage, flyers, advertisements) 20.000 €
Partial overnight stays and food for our team 9.000 €
Allowances for the organisation team (planning phase 1 year) 12.000 €
Interior decoration of the hall and the various tents 3.000 €
Gema fee (registering the dance events) 1.000 €
