I have tried with little success to copy more complete information about Damanhur as it appears on their home page and on the Caritas site--but I do recommend that you go to these sites and check it out. Damanhur is one of the most fascinating projects of our time. It is essentially a collection of folks who operate in norther Italy to build a sustainable, ecologically sound, mystical community. Damanhur has been named by the United Nations as a model for future social organization.
The group in Italy has for years labored to build a divine temple underground, decorating it with beautiful mystical works of art:
Every year thousands of people visit Damanhur to try out the social model, study the philosophy and to meditate in the Temples of Humankind, that great underground construction excavated by hand by the citizens of Damanhur and which many have called the ‘Eighth wonder of the world’.
The Temple Halls are an underground work of art, a subterranean cathedral created entirely by hand and dedicated to the divine nature of humanity. It is a great three dimensional book which recounts the history of Humankind through all the art forms, a path of re-awakening to the Divine inside and outside of ourselves.
They also do a special form of healing utilizing
spirals, metals, colours, inks, and minerals --the healing includes cooperation with certain living spiritual energies from other dimensions:
SELFICA – The outcome of the most advanced research of the Damanhurian laboratories, at the boundaries of science, the selfs are structures made from metals and specially prepared liquids and inks. They can become intelligent healing tools, working in symbiosis with the organism, by re-imprinting information onto the functional aspects of the body that are weak, at the time. There are selfs for a very large number of pathologies, from those of the eyes to those of the intestines, for physical and psychical problems, with a general action and with a target
Researchers at Damanhur have also discovered a way to record the sounds (music) of the plants:
The Music of the Plants has been researched since as early as 1976. Damanhurian researchers had created equipment capable of capturing electromagnetic changes on the surface of leaves and roots and transforming them into sounds. The desire for a profound contact with nature is also the inspiration for the ‘Plant Concerts’, where the musicians perform to the accompaniment of melodies created by the trees.
You can even hear some of this music on YouTube.
A Damanhur representative will speak at the Caritas Center in Boulder from 7-9 on Friday, August 16. A healing demonstration and workshop will be presented (also at Caritas) from 10-5 on Friday, August 23. I plan to attend both, for I consider this a rare opportunity to learn more about this unique community of souls.
