Damanhur is a Federation of Spiritual Communities, nestled in the alpine foothills in the north of Italy. It was founded in 1975 to create a fertile reality based on solidarity, sharing, love and respect for the environment.

This sacred ceremony will support PEJDA ’spiritual and financial abundance’ for the world and you are welcome to participate.

The offering relates to the question posed by Michael Lindfield, “Can we apply the founding principles and still have them work?”
