Damanhur

48 posts in this topic

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.

Too hippy for my taste :D

Kidding.

I’d love to take a peek :yes: I promise not to leave visible graffiti, unless they would like one and could fit it in the whole... what to call it? ... it's more than just a structure, it's a phenomenon.

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? I’ve 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.

Trying to explain Damanhur is a pretty daunting task, there are so many parts to our community, but if you ask me I will do my best to give you any answers I can.

Cheers!

I think that your guess is as good as mine, I just don't know how to reconcile it with the science we know. Lets take this talking to the extraterrestrials for example. The nearest planet we know having the best chance of supporting life is about 9 light years away. To communicate in a fashion that would not require about 18 years just to exchange the greetings breaks all the concepts of time we have.

Now, if these guys want to call it a religion, or an attempt to get to wisdom's last conclusion by copying the past they might be on a productive track.... for them.

Thank you for the welcome! I will answer your questions as best I can.

yvette is my birth name, I have not taken a Damanhurian name yet. Damanhurian names are composed of first name Animal or Mythical Entity and last name Plant. Taking a new name is a big responsibility, it means that you assume responsibility for helping to protect the species. In some ways, you beomce a caretaker, helping the species in any physical and energetical way you can.

I am responsible for helping create bridges between Damanhur and the outside world, specifically through technology. I am a Community Manager, and my community spans between Damanhur and all our friends via social networks, websites, blogs and so forth. Damanhur feels that it is important to share what we have built so that people can be inspired to create their own communities. We don't want to be copied, but instead want people to realize that working together, in whatever way is best for their culture and community, is the best way to evolve. Community can mean living together like we do, or doing things with your neighbors or doing projects with people that have similar interests. Does that make sense?

The School of Hypnosis was started at Damanhur in 1979. You can read more about the program of study School of Hypnosis

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?

Government experiment, no. Given that we are located in the middle of an extremely Catholic Country, the government here in Italy does not always take too kindly to us. That being said, after years of working together, we do have the support of local government.

Damanhur, in addition to being an EcoCommunity, is also a Mystery School. I would not say we are a secret society because our doors are open, but we are a magical community with an active initiate community.

The founding of Damanhur goes way farther that just the physical community you see today. If you read any of the books written by Falco (the main founder, Oberto Airaudi) or any other Damanhurians, it is quite clear the connections to Atlantis and beings beyond this physical plane. As I said before, we are a Mystery School, and as such there are many magical operations that are done in order to help humanity. The Temples of Humankind is more than just a beautiful structure, it is an active entity used daily.

We have a course here called Past Lives Research where each person is walked through one of their past lives. It is a fascinating course that begins months before the student enters the classroom with the Oracle of Damanhur tapping into the person's history and choosing one life to develop in the class. The reaction of the people that have taken the class is probably your best proof of reincarnation. Of course there is other evidence within Damanhur, but this is the easiest to access. Then again, more and more proof is coming out daily from all kinds of sources. Have you seen this report?

The Temples of Humankind were built in secret because in Italy there was no law governing underground construction. Basically, you could own the land, but anything below the ground was considered Italian property. After the Temples of Humankind was discovered, we were able to get a new law put in place so that today the Temples is completely legal.

As to its purpose, it is dedicated to humanity. Every ritual, visit, research project... done in the Temples of Humankind is aimed at helping humanity win the war against its enemy, that part within ourselves that prevents our progress, feeds the negative ego, hurts others, etc.

Also I would like to know whats dailylife there?

http://www.damanhur.org/index.php/about-us/daily-life

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?

We use alternative energy almost everwhere. Traditional energy is used more of a backup. You can read about our sustainable practices here: http://www.damanhur.org/index.php/about-us/sustainability

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?

Personally, I teach a method of Astral Travel and am a teacher of Kabbalah and Sacred Geometry, so the answer to your question is yes. Here at Damanhur, we also teach Astral Travel and how to work with dreams. Dream work is a very important part of Damanhurian philosophy. There are many courses and lectures taught by our University: http://www.olamidamanhur.com. There are also a group of us that travel around the world giving lectures, teaching courses and helping people understand Damanhur better. If you are interested in having someone come to your city, contact me directly or write to damanhurintheworld@damanhur.it

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?

I am not sure if I posted this link before, but here is a video snippet of a concert with the Music of the Plants: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkbAr72Kifk. There are several more on our Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/damanhurTUBE

The Synchronic Lines are rivers of energy that traverse up and down our planet, going deep into the earth and up into the heavens. You can read more about them here. I found this article a few months ago written by someone outside of Damanhur that should answer your question about belief: http://www.european-pyramids.eu/wb/pages/pyramid-grid.php - fascinating.

As for whose decision it was to research these areas, one came from Falco the other came from a group of Damanhurians, and is currently spearheaded by Camaleonte. He continues to do research in the area, finding new ways to communicate with trees and plants. There are two devices for the Music of the Plants, I like to think of them as the pro and retail version. The pro version is the unit made by hand in Damanhur and is available for purchase. You can see a picture of it here: El músico con su instrumento The retail version is to be called Plantunes. We have a working model, we are only looking for an investor that wants to work with us on the manufacturing. You can see a picture of the unit here: Plantunes

If you are interested in the Pro version, send me a message and I can give you more information about it. If you know of anyone interested in working with us to manufacture Plantunes, I can put you in touch with the people responsible for the project.

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?

No, Damanhurians do not "have" to believe in anything, they just have to be willing to put their thoughts into action. All visitors are welcome, and for those that want more than just a visit, you can come to live with us, as a temporary citizen, for three months as part of the NewLife program. This program allows you to live just like we do. Here is more information on the program.

Can you tell us more about Selfica?

http://www.damanhur.org/index.php/philosophy-a-research/research/18-selfica

http://www.sel-et.com/en/html/ArcMagazineDet.asp?IDArt=2

Whew... tough questions. ;)

As a favor, I would ask that everyone interested in Damanhur please join our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter... oh, and please tell your friends. We are trying to use these channels to share information.

Thank you, Yvette.

I find Synchronic Lines particularly interesting, probably because I’m deeply convinced “my” mountain (Učka in Istria) is energetically... how to define it?... let’s say very active.

It could be just me feeling connected to it, but to me personally, that energy is very real and almost palpable.

Did you look at the map of the Synchronic Lines in the link I sent? It could be that a line crosses right through that part of the mountain. The lines are very wide, so if they are close to the surface, their energy can be felt quite intensely.

Blessings!

There’s no line right across Učka according to the map, but if you ask me, it only means that map is missing a line :D

There are many stone formations on the mountain itself that have perfectly plausible and boring geological explanations, still, they are like temples to me. I feel them from the distance and entering them makes me go full lunatic, having clear ideas of what used to happen there in the past.

Either these spots really are some sort of connection points, either I’m insane. I’m open to both possibilities :D

(In case some of sceptics that read this thread were wondering, yes, I do hug trees too and it feels like trees do hug me back.)

Errr

Okay Yvete Im realy busy these days, job, family ,christmas and etc. BTW happy Christmas and happy new year.

I have many questions (especially about hypnosis but I will ask them later), here is few...

Any special reason why you named your community on Horus city?

Who is in charge?

Why you have labratory for?

Do you really belive that kid (didnt heard his name and I tryed to listen 5 times) really was pilot in previous life? Could it be that he watched movie or documentary where he saw how Japanese hit US airplane?

How come that Selfica is ancient art? I never heard of it.

From your site:

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.

Please can you confirm us that Egyptians Etruscian and Celtic have anything with Selfica? And what about Atlantis? Please do tell.

Anyway do you know any person who made contact with selfs. Can you charge yourself like battery? Whats the feeling? Can we messure that energy?

Why you have seed bank?

Also you have one PM.

Thanks in advance.

What a great idea...I believe it is within our capacity to create commune but I think we are way to selfish to appreciate it's form...for the long term...which is why all the big known communes have failed...

Kudos for your attempt yvette,I think people like you and your fellow members have a point to show the rest of us about sacrifice, humilty and dedication....it probably won't go far but thank you for sharing...

I love the concept and the idealism exhibited...
