Diversity, peoples and education

One of the enriching aspects of life at Damanhur is the value we give to cultural diversity. A recent project in the Damanhur School about the peoples of the world has brought Damanhurianchildren in costumes from cultures of the world citizens and friends from different ethnic backgrounds to the kindergarten aged kids as a means of educating and sharing culture. The ethnicities explored were selected based on those present in the community: Somalian, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Peruvian and Venezuelan.

Bertuccia, a Damanhurian citizen with Somalian roots prepared African foods for lunch, creating a setting with Somalian music in the background, where everyone took off their shoes before entering, stepping over incense as they entered through the doorway to clear away negative thoughts. The kid and adults all sat on mats and ate with their hands, as is tradition in this culture.

Rite of the Oracle every full moon

The Rite of the Oracle is one of the most important ceremonies at Damanhur, the public celebration of the Answers channeled throughout the lunar month. The priestesses, called Pythies, lead us in ceremony. During the ritual a window of spiritual light opens and everyone present can feel the contact with the divine dimension.
