Hubert Schlaucher, Austria
Lecture: The Transformative Power of Love
Workshop: Joy Is the Song of Thanksgiving
“I want to share the experience of universal love and its unlimited healing power with you. Gentleness, honesty and trust are essential ingredients of this universal love that we already are and that we will remember together at the Festival.
For me, blossoming in Christ means remembering the divine beauty and perfection in us. It means remembering that there is no lack in us and all needs have already been met. It means remembering that from this abundance we put an end to every idea of sacrifice by giving and sharing and experiencing only God’s joy in everything.” – Hubert
Andrea Hanheide, Hüllhorst
Lecture: The Holy Spirit
Workshop: In the Fire and Light of the Holy Spirit

Kornilia Nikoleri, Greece
Lecture: The Beauty of Being Seen
Workshop: You Are a Holy Receptor for You and Your Brother
“‘Blossoming in Christ’ – Wawww, what an idea in my mind! Through our awakening-in-Christ process we grow up each and every moment in new discoveries of Self and Life Itself and we open up in our creativity of mind, reaching out to our true essence, radiating beauty and light in such a gentle and unique way.” – Kornilia
For the past 12 years Kornilia has been living, teaching and healing in the light of this ongoing experience of the profound and miraculous teachings of A Course in Miracles.

Gregor Geißmann, Nottuln
Workshop: Holiness – Giving Space to the Non-Special
“Let’s get ready and explore together what blossoms will unfold when we peel the ‘ego onion’ with due curiosity.” – Gregor
Gregor began studying, untangling, practicing, and applying the Course in the mid-1990s. He has been sharing his findings with a changing audience in his online forum for 20 years. In the process, he discovered that forgiveness and the ‘real world’ are to be experienced – for merely acquiring ‘knowledge’ will not make anything blossom in Christ.

Gestna Maria Dunker, Flensburg
Lecture: You Are the Mouthpiece for the Silent Christ in You
Workshop: Speaking Without Fear Is Only Possible With Christ
“My wish this year was to have a Christ conference, and ta-dah! I’m getting one. Christ is what we are, and this is what we celebrate – always. I would also like to see this term become accessible to everyone; finding its way into spirituality as a free concept which is no longer fraught with religious, Christian dogmas. Christ means ‘the One Self’, which we are.” – Gestna Maria
Gestna has been hosting various forms of seminars, study groups, and online classes since 2016. Working in a team with her Mighty Companions is her heart’s joy.

Tadeusz Miedziarek, Polen
Lecture / Workshop: The Holy Instant
“I have been involved with the change of mind based on A Course in Miracles for about 18 years. In this time my life has changed completely. My only and most important decision is my reconciliation with GOD. I learn and teach this constantly in different ways. Through this I receive grace and great help from GOD, which manifests itself in many light experiences. Recently, I had a serious accident at work, which led to the temporary death of my body. Thanks to my prayers and those of my loved ones, I experienced healing. Now every moment is a miracle for me.” – Tadeusz
