maskAutumn has Arrived, and with it a Time for Reflection

Between the end of October and the beginning of November, the need to reflect will reach one of its traditionally most intense moments for us, the moment of the Commemoration of the Dead ritual. It is a delicate and profound moment together – one that pushes us to meditate on the meaning of life and death, to better celebrate the first and honor the latter.

For so many traditions, beyond just the Damanhurian, it is a period of introspection and remembrance. For Damanhur, this year will be particularly special because it will be the first time in which amongst the names of our deceased honored during the ritual, we will hear the name of Falco…

Yet October is also the month of the grape harvest and of wine! Therefore, there will be joy in the reflection and memories and the preparation for winter, where we will safeguard our new projects, ready to explode in the spring!

And so we wish you a sweet, gentle autumn filled with serenity and vitality.

On the occasion of the Commemoration of the Dead, we offer you the opportunity to participate in a wonderful and intense program rich with meaning:

Beyond Life

October 30th – November 3rd

How wonderful to celebrate the first Summer Solstice ritual at the great circle in the nucleo community of Pedja!

Immerse yourself in the Damanhurian vision of death, treated in the evolutionary sense, with the intent to explore a positive and solar vision of the meaning of life and death. Made up of short presentations and courses, your journey will include meditation techniques, art and creativity, philosophical explorations and a guided meditation in the Temples of Humankind.

Included as part of the program is a night in the Temples of Humankind as part of the Contact with the Cosmos course and the Commemoration of the Dead ritual.

Damanhur International

Damanhur NederlandDamanhur Embassy in the Netherlands

In Holland, we recently began our second Dutch group of The School of Meditation. The group is still open to new members for a limited time, after which it will be not possible to enter. It is a path of initiation, this means you cannot just drop in, it takes devotion and constant presence. It make take several years before a third group will start, so if you are interested… the time is Now! For more information please contact the embassy.

In addition to Meditation, the Embassy in Holland organizes many courses and events throughout the year, including Past Lives Research, Ancient Civilizations of Humankind, Inner Personalities and more!

All courses are given in English and the location of the events are mainly in the central part of Holland and (from Amsterdam) easy to reach with public transportation.

Want to learn more about Embassy activities, organize an event in your city or plan a group visit to Damanhur? Send us an email. We also invite you to LIKE the Embassy page on Facebook, where we share stories and publish events. You can write to us in Dutch, English or Italian.


The ritual of the Commemoration of the Dead will be held on Sunday, November 3rd. If you are interested in participating in the celebration, please consult the Welcome Office.

The best prayer we could possibly create is one which consists of doing something together, not in asking. -Falco
