Pieces of Enchantment – Damanhur and Beyond
Ever since years ago, I heard about and researched the Temples of Humankind built by the Damanhur Federation that lie deep inside of a mountain in northern Italy – a Universal Temple for the ages that’s been called the Eighth Wonder of the World and the First Wonder of the New World by others – I have been drawn to visit it. If you haven’t heard about them or seen them, here is a link for more information: http://www.thetemples.org/. It’s one of those places that reminds us of our sacred connection and the sacredness of life and creative expression.
“Damanhur, is an eco-society based on ethical and spiritual values, awarded by an agency of the United Nations as a model for a sustainable future.
Founded in 1975, the Federation has about 1,000 citizens and extends over 500 hectares of territory throughout Valchiusella and the Alto Canavese area, at the foothills of the Piedmont Alps.
Damanhur offers courses and events all year round, and it is possible to visit for short periods as well as longer stays for study, vacation or regeneration.
Damanhur promotes a culture of peace and equitable development through solidarity, volunteerism, respect for the environment, art, and social and political engagements.” damanhur.org
