How to Create a Successful Community
July 23 – 29, 2012

If you can only get away for a week and would like to learn about creating community, we have this shorter course coming up!

Have you ever reconnected with your past lives?

expression of emotion and memoryOne of Damanhur’s most popular courses, Past Lives Research is journey of self-discovery with meditative, creative and dynamic exercises to reawaken the emotions of a past life. Though the course, you may get to know the experiences, lessons learned, and preciousness of a past lifetime. Rather than staying attached to the past, this course offers tools for becoming ever more present to the talents and strengths you can draw on in this lifetime.

Tree orientation – new Selfic pendulum

Orienting trees in the Gran Paradiso

As of June 7, 2012, 4,395,321 trees have been oriented in Italy and all over the world, from 2 in Abu Dhabi to 2 million in Japan! Click here to find out how many trees have been oriented in your country.

What is tree orientation? … Human presence and intention are indispensable to re-establish the spiritual connection with the tree world, an alliance our species broke, forgetting that we are all part of the same living and spiritual eco-system. The Selfic technology developed at Damanhur mediates our intention, translating it into a signal the trees can grasp and use, and furnishes the necessary, specialized and intelligent energies that allow the trees to energetically connect to one another, to the ancient matrix of “treeness”, and to the divine forces that preside over them.
