Foreword by Esperide Ananas
In Italy, almost 30 years ago, a group of people dug deep into an Alpine mountainside and built the remarkable Temples of Humankind at Damanhur. These Temples are an extraordinary work of art that has been described as "an Eighth Wonder of the World".
The Temples are just one of the extraordinary achievements of the people of the Federation of Damanhur. A United Nations award-winning sustainable community, Damanhur is an eco-society based upon ethical and spiritual values. In creating community, Damanhur has drawn on ancient knowledge, esoteric traditions, and modern research to promote a culture of peace and balanced development through solidarity, volunteering, a respect for the environment, and social and political commitment.
Damanhurians participate in cutting edge research in such fields as contemporary science, healing, the structure of time, and the interaction with intelligent energies. Damanhur has a system of community that effectively balances encouragement for individuals to reach their highest potential, with an enlightened, democratic structure to provide for the common good.
Damanhur is a place where dreams are realized, where ideas beyond reason are given a chance, and where very often they become a reality. This is the story of how and why this can happen.
