The Soul is a community

Meet the people, meet the place, the land, the spiral… Overview of the magical time together: the Oracle, the Equinox, the Temples and the sacred land of Damanhur.

You will learn to recognize, guide and enjoy the different parts of your personality and the complexity of your soul. When you acknowledge and accept all the aspects you are composed of and harmonize them, then everything inside of you will be pulling in one clearly defined direction. You’ll feel fully energetic, satisfied, at peace with ourselves and aligned with your Higher Self.

You will playfully discover your different personalities, the facets of your Soul. Start a process of integration and recognition of the main note/s of your presence.
You will familiarize with the symbolic power of the alchemical elements, discover yours, bring it to life, and learn to express and balance it.

You will enjoy practical experiences and meditations in the sacred areas of Damjl - Damanhur’s oldest settlement and main ground - and in the Temples of Humankind. An art workshop, a hike in the mountains and plenty of time to play, share and connect will make this week a memorable start of your Journey.
