Many ways to get to know Damanhur and share experiences
Live in a Damanhur community like one of the citizens
Is it is possible to enter into the heart of community life for a period of time to understand more about Damanhur and also explore the spiritual side? The answer is yes! This possibility is called the New Life program, or temporary citizenship, and it offers an experience for anyone who would like to have a three-month immersion in Damanhurian life. It doesn't matter if you have known Damanhur for years or if this is the first time you are hearing about us. All are welcome! During the three months of New Life citizenship, you will live in the communities and share in the daily activities, celebrations, and opportunities for meeting and exchange. You will also have access to a program that tells the story of Damanhur's history and its principles, the Path to Spiritual Freedom, experiences in the Sacred Woods Temple, meditation in the Temples of Humankind and many other activities. During the period of temporary citizenship, there is a request for not smoking, as it is for every Damanhur citizen. So, it's an excellent opportunity to begin quitting altogether, if you do smoke. At the end of the three-month period, participants in the New Life program may continue their journey toward new horizons or deepen their adventure in Damanhur. Participants in the New Life program come from all over the world, adding international flavor and cultural diversity to this experience. For everyone, among the many offerings of the New Life program, there are also Italian lessons. Interested in knowing more? Wondering when you can start this experience?

The birth of a new Popolo of spiritual researchers
In an era when not only animal and plant species are disappearing, but also entire popoli (peoples) are dying out-and with them an enormous cultural, linguistic and social heritage-Damanhur has chosen to create a Popolo with its own philosophical, artistic, social and cultural expression.
Our intention is to create a worldwide intentional popolo that promotes basic human values and fundamental ethical principles. Despite the trend of destruction of many kinds of life on the planet, we believe that it is possible to save life on earth, through a deep union of humanity and respect for the ancestral bonds with our earth.
Membership in the Popolo Spirituale is open to all spiritual seekers who want to serve as points of light on the planet. Many people who take part in the Popolo do not live at Damanhur but they identify with our intentions and goals.
Being a part of the Popolo means appreciating and valuing the diversity expressed in different cultures, art and spiritual faith. It means creating models of life based on respect, solidarity and love, and moving toward a common goal: the reawakening of humanity and deep union with all the forms of life that exist around us.
Becoming a member of the Popolo involves a simple ceremony that takes place at Damanhur. From that day forward, all it takes on your part is one minute every day to maintain your connection to the Popolo. Every new moon there is a celebration called "Damanhur Get" that is reserved to members of the Popolo. Being part of the Popolo Spirituale offers a connection to like-minded people all over the world, and a way to stay connected to the synchronic energies of Damanhur and the Temples of Humankind. At any time, you can decide to cease the connection by discontinuing this practice. It's that simple, and that powerful.
Perhaps the journey of your soul brings you here?
Damanhurian citizens have created Damanhur and wish to continue developing and sharing it with the world, because a place like this can be a stimulus for many other innovative and talented people who are just waiting for a resonant example to give substance to their dreams. Then, there is another reason: as Damanhurians, we feel that we are part of a project that started a time long ago, connected to the experience of the ancient history of humanity, which Damanhurians have participated in during past lives, and with them, there were surely many other people. So, we have a strong desire to meet these companions again, seeing them emerge from the waves of time like corks that emerge from the ocean waves. This is why we created the Aminé Program: ten days immersed in the enchantment of Damanhur, encountering the message of Falco Tarassaco, to recognize if you are a cork too - Drimj, in Damanhurian Sacred Language - and re-establish a stable contact with Damanhur, as a citizen of the community or as a supporter from your home country, depending on how you would like to follow this thread that may lead to a past connection. Aminé means getting to know Damanhur in order to travel into the past and discover a branch of time on which we may have already known each other, and in this way, reconstruct a piece of our personal history as well. The program is organized by the Damanhur Welcome Office it provides an immersion in Damanhur to perceive within yourself and sense if we have already meet before, or to embark upon a journey of discovering it. It takes place with the canons of Damanhurian experiences: in groups, refraining from smoking, with intensity, focus and humor.
