The Summer Celebration of Life is hosted by the cottage Kubasova chalupa in Sudislav nad Orlicí in the Czech Eagle Mountains (www.cestasrdce.cz). This centre was founded by Monika and Michal Kubasovi as a part of the project Raising the energetic vibration of Earth. “When we returned from our long-term stay abroad in 2006, we started slowly turning our family homestead into the place of Sharing. In 2010 the building underwent a significant reconstruction and now offers very pleasant and comfortable space. It is a place of Meeting and Development through workshops, courses, meeting and journeys.” The cottage offers a large hall for meditation, dance and lectures, big central hall, a tearoom, a big room out of the original log-house, three- and four-bed garret rooms, separate male/female bathrooms and toilets, and a glass dining room. There is also a cute inner yard and around are gardens and meadows.

Most probably you are not the only person feeling like that! Many people feel slightly afraid, especially those who are going to attend such event for the first time. It is quite natural, for entering unknown territory, going to a place where we haven’t been before, being among new people – all of that needs some courage, right? If our intuition whispers to us that a potentially profound experience awaits us, it usually contains a lot of energy. And such experiences force us to broaden our limits (without ignoring them, of course!). It may be a good idea to realize whether your feelings are closer to nervousness or horror. If it is the latter, than Celebration of Life probably wouldn‘t be the right experience for you. Simply trust your intuition!
<strong>YES!</strong> The programme is rich – you can make a satisfactory choice, even if you take part in such event for the very first time. During the festival, there will be no need of any advanced technique requiring previous knowledge or experience. You can choose a programme according to your taste. And moreover, if you are not in the right mood, no one will force you to do anything… For example, you may rest in sauna, swimming pool, or whirlpool.
<p class=”western”><strong><span style=”color: #444444;”><span lang=”en-GB”>YES!</span></span></strong><span style=”color: #444444;”><span lang=”en-GB”> Entering and becoming part of the group is for some people a challenge. The first evening and next morning consist of exercises and workshops that make this profoundly easier. We are preparing the programme in the way that will support your connection with yourself and your current situation, so that you are able to create for yourself the kind of experience that you long for and need. The Celebration of Life is an opportunity to start training yourself in this without having to be anyone else than yourself.</span></span></p>
<strong>NO.</strong> This is a hot question for many of the participants. And the purely natural answer is: NO! The Celebration of Life is a space where you can experience the whole range of ways how to celebrate, express yourself, be together. And being sexual is only one of the infinite spectrum of options! There is no reason why you should do anything what you do not want to do. Our rich programme combines different methods of personal development: meditation, yoga, energetic exercises, contact improvisation, dance, shamanism, constellations, rituals, lectures, discussions … etc. If you are not interested in the topic of sexuality or contact with others, you can visit differently-oriented workshops during the whole festival. The most important rule of the Celebration is mutual respect to personal boundaries. – Together with that, the Celebration of Life accepts human beings in their wholeness, including sexuality. For that reason, we are offering also several workshops dedicated to that topic, and won’t prevent sexual contacts between adults. For that sake we are also preparing a beautiful space – „Temple of Love“ – where people may sexually meet in a safe space.
<strong>YES.</strong> You are welcomed! We support all forms of self-expression and wish that everyone of us was allowed to be who he or she is, so that we can celebrate our uniqueness.
<strong>YES.</strong> The team of the teachers who will lead the main programme is already complete. But if you are going to attend the Celebration, you may engage in preparation of the New Year’s Evening and perform in our talent show. For example, you may prepare some sort of show, dance, performance, or entertainment… If this is attractive for you, write to us when signing up, and later we shall let you know about the possibilities.
<strong>YES.</strong> You can attend the whole programme as a couple, or single. If you come as a couple, it is up to you, whether you will like to go through the same workshops and exercises together or separately. And if you come completely on your own, do not be afraid – already during the opening evening you will have opportunity to meet others. Most people are coming single or with friends, couples usually make some 30% of all participants.
