Self-Sufficiency in 2013, our primary goal

Salute!We are Damanhurians, we live in a magic place at the crossing of four synchronic lines – the great rivers of energy which connect the planets of this Universe having any form of life. We are researches, temple builders, agriculturalists, artists, magicians, travelers, students, players, entrepreneurs, musicians, and most of all, friends. We are people who dream One Dream together, and we want you to come and join us. Come for a day, week or few months

In this moment, we are focused on achieving full self-sufficiency: transforming more territories into fertile agriculture fields, renewing damanhurian handcrafts, extending our laboratories. We continue to produce performances, Music of the Plants, conferences and study programs. Each nucleo community inside of Damanhur is experimenting with different ways to become more self-sufficient. We are a People and enjoy showing that through our way of living. We believe Humanity’s future is based on living in communities and tribes guided by solidarity and reciprocal giving.

Choose your path to Damanhur:
Visitor, Student or New Life temporary citizen.

CONCERTS: On the 19th and 22nd of December, there will be a special concert of the “Poem of Anansal”. After 20 years, this ancient poem is back on stage, enriched with new compositions and performed in sacred language by a troupe of actors, dancers and the choir of Damanhur.

CELEBRATIONS: December is filled with activities starting on 23rd of December with the Winter Solstice, and for those who are part of the Popolo Spirituale, the Purification of the Popolo. The Damanhurian full moon ritual, the Rite of the Oracle takes place on 27th.
