Damanhur News: A Photograph of Time

Apr 14, 15 Damanhur News: A Photograph of Time

With the Eyes and Hands

Research and Experimentation: The Plant WorldTime and space are moving around us and within us. The challenge that we face every day – a challenge that is both sweet and demanding – is to leave our mark on time and space, without stopping them within us, without staying attached to a particular moment.

The meditation we propose this month is to be done with the eyes and hands, as a vehicle of the heart.

Leave the house and go for a walk until you get to a park, the woods, a beach. Look around for something that is “calling” to you somehow: a stone, a piece of wood, something that nature is offering to you. Pick it up and take it with you to your home. As a last step, modify it. Engrave your name on it, color it, change it’s shape. In this way, you are connecting it to the moment when you picked up the object, and you will keep that moment with you, while time continues to flow onward.

You can repeat this simple personal ritual every time you feel you are experiencing an important moment. You will have created a small emotional souvenir, an object full of meaning, a photograph of time.

Where Nature is a Temple

Spring has arrived! Plants and flowers are blooming and the days are getting longer. As it’s becoming ever more enjoyable to stay outdoors, we invite you to visit the Sacred Woods Temple of Damanhur, which are the extension of the Temples of Humankind. It is a place were you find stone labyrinths and standing stones that modulate the energies between earth and sky. These labyrinths are used as authentic meditation pathways.

Beyond the usual One Day Visit and Half Day Visit to the Temples of Humankind, the Damanhur Welcome Office organizes different programs for walking the labyrinths and visits to the Sacred Woods Temple.

In April, we also offer many chances to participate in the 3 and 5 day visits.
