I didnt know where to put this, in new age modern mysteries, metaphysics or conspiraries ,secret societies...

Recently I have chance to hear about Damanhur.  Middle age man and woman talk about it and I thought "oh another sect".
Anyway , it s a ecovillage and spiritual community situated in the Piedmont region, in Italy, about 50 km north of the city of Turin. It is located in the foothills of the Alps.  The community has its own constitution and currency, the Credito. Damanhur is named after the Egyptian city of Damanhur which was the site of a temple dedicated to Horus. It was founded in 1975 by Oberto Airaudi with around 24 followers, and had grown to 800 by the year 2000. They gained fame in 1992 through the disclosure of their secret excavation of an extensive underground temple, the Temples of Humankind, which was begun in 1978 under complete secrecy. The Italian authorities ordered construction work to stop because it had been constructed without planning approval, although artwork could continue. The constitution began with 3 bodies of Damanhur: The School of Meditation (ritual tradition) Social (social theory, social realization) and The Game of Life (experimentation and dynamics, life as a game, change). A fourth body was recently added, Tecnarcato (individual inner refinement).
Their underground temple have:
Parts of the Temples:
Hall of Water – dedicated to the feminine principle, it is in the shape of a chalice and invites receptivity
Blue Hall – for meditation on social matters and is used as a place of inspiration and reflection
Hall of Earth – dedicated to the masculine principle, to the earth as an element and planet and to past and future reincarnations
Hall of Metals – represents the different ages and developmental stages of humankind and the shadow elements of the human psyche
Labyrinth Hall – showing Interfaith worship through the centuries, uniting different cultures and peoples
Hall of Spheres – positioned where 3 synchronic lines merge, inviting planetary contact and transmission of messages, ideas and dreams to create harmony between nations
Hall of Mirrors – dedicated to the sky, air and light, solar energy, strength and life. There are 4 altars to earth, water, air and fire
Here is their web site
http://www.damanhur.org/

They are commited to philosophy, art. They have own flag. Even their holy language.  They are organized in Nucleuses. Its family house in which lived 20 members. Those communities (nukleus) are in fact projects for itself. One community research alternative energies, second produce food, third create clothing, fourth raised teenagers and so on.
They have electricity, water, televisions, Internet, cars, cell phones. They are not all vegeterians.
Every member took two new names. One of animal origin and one of herbal origin.
They dont worship any God. They respect all religions. Whats quite interesting is that they said that they have rituals to remember your previous life, they have room for astral travel where they go and communicate with extraterrestials and higher entity. Chatolic church has been protesting about them. State Italy put them on trail and they won. Only restrictions are ciggaretes because its bad for planet. But they produce good wine.
As I mentioned before they research previous life ,astral travel, music of the planet, Synchronic Lines, selfica, they even have they own labratory.

The Music of the Plants has been researched 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.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 trees learn to control their electrical responses, as if they are aware of the music they are creating. Soon there will be a miniaturised piece of equipment available to the public, so that this profound experience of communication with the plant world can be shared with whoever desires it.Concerts of Tree Music are held regularly in Damanhur and have been presented at festivals in Europe, India, the United States and Canada.An interesting experiment is presently being undertaken in collaboration with the Botanical Garden of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Florence.Several of these experiences have already been made into collections on the musical CDs produced by the label Val Ra Damanhur.
The Synchronic Lines are great rivers of energy which connect all the planets of this Universe having any form of life: they flow round our Planet through a network composed of nine major vertical lines, i.e. with a North-South direction, and nine horizontal lines, with an East-West direction.The Synchronic Lines transport thoughts and ideas, and through them it is possible to connect to any point whatsoever on the Planet.Damanhur, and in particular the Temples of Humankind, have arisen where four of these major lines cross as they follow their flowing into the inner Earth. The maps used to represent the synchronic lines have been achieved by a group of Damanhurian researchers, together with Oberto Airaudi. The synchronic lines were identified through physical journeys around the world, through the observation of physical phenomena happening close to where the lines surface, with regard to the climate and the morphology of the landscape, by observing historical events concentrated in some areas (political centres, cult centres, trade routes, scientific discoveries) and by means of mediumistic methods.
One of the most interesting fields of research greatly developed by Damanhur is that connected to Selfica, a discipline which consents concentrating and directing specialised living energies. Traces of Selfica can be found in Egyptian, Etruscan and Celtic culture and among the ancient Arabs, who used it until the eighth century B.C.The myth recounts that Selfica was widely used also in Atlantis.


So what do you think is there any conspiracy here? Is this some experiment by goverment? By which goverment? Or by  some secret socitey?  Are they able to do what they are talking? Are they communicate with extraterestrials and higher beings? Can they proof reincanation? Do you like their way of life? How come that building underground complex was secret? Do you belive in this new age mix? If you think that this is some secret experimentation done here what do you think what is their goal?

Thanks.Cheers.

As new age as it is, it's one of the most beautiful things new age has ever brought forth.

Thanks for giving me a note, Melo.

My brother visited it many years ago (being very interested in architecture and art in general) and couldn't stop talking about it.

They copied architecture from all civilizations. You will see there Indian, Islam, Egyptian, Aztec ,European architecture...

Just him being very much impressed about the architecture and the beauty of the art. He didn't care much for the fluffy philosophy behind it all.

Yes, they have borrowed a lot from other cultures, but what they created is a true '8th world-wonder'.

I only hope that a 1000 years in the future people will not think it were aliens who helped them, lol.

What 1000 years? Iíve read some articles in the past that were more than implying aliens are involved in Damanhur.
At least via channeling. It's cheaper than space flight.

Yes, I already heard that hypothesis. Damanhur is already part of ancient aliens story.

Thanks for the link Melo, it is a beautiful place.  I didn't know about it at all.  I've lived in the States most my life and have been in many places in EU.  It will go on my "to do" list.

Hello Yvete Soler and welcome on the UM. :lol: Im glad that you with us. Few questions. :blush:
Is that your Damanhur name? What exactly are you doing there?
First of all, is there any hypnosis done there? *snip*

Second I would like that you answer questions from post 1

Is this some experiment by Goverment? By which goverment? Or by some secret socitey? Are Damanuhurians able to do what they are talking? Are they communicate with extraterestrials and higher beings? Can they proof reincanation? How come that building underground complex was secret? Where did you get money for buliding that underground complex? Whats your goal?

Also I would like to know whats dailylife there?
Did you able to made progress with alternative energy ? What exactly do you use ?
Who decide about major questions and organize Damanhur? Who is in charge? Do you feel global economic crisis?
Why you have labratory for?
Are you able to communicate with extraterestrials and higher being trough meditation/astral travel/lucid dreams or whatever?
What was you in your previous life? Who did you be able to do know that?

Can you upload some music of the planet that we can hear it? What is exactly music of planet?
Do you belive in Synchronic Lines? What are they exactly? Who decide that you will research those lines and music of plant?

Are Damanhurians must belive in Synchronic Lines and previous life to be one? Can I be sceptic citizen/memeber?
How can I become Damanhurian? Any special reason why you named your community on Horus city?

Can you tell us more about Selfica?
