January 2019
Greetings Everyone!

Here we are, starting NEW YEAR!
New Dreams, New Aspirations, New Possibilities!
How do you envision 2019 ? New chapter of your life?...
What reality you'll be creating this year?...

Two months ago my friend and I were blessed with opportunity to visit and spend couple of days at DAMANHUR , Federation of Communities located in the mountains of northern Italy.
Since the first time I've heard about Damanhur(6-7 years ago) I've been fascinated with outstanding accomplishments and creations by the people of this one of a kind futuristic community, and I wanted to go visit one day.
So, Damanhur landed on my "bucket list".
This last November, when the seminar(the original reason for our travel) in Italy was canceled, my friend and I decided not to cancel our trip, but instead turn it into adventure and go visit one of the most vibrant, creative, sustainable and spiritual communities in the world!
Get a direct experience and inspiration.
And we are so glad we did!
We were so blessed and pleased to learn about life and to come into contact with this extraordinary community, and to see the most astounding, subterranean work of art at the Temples of Humankind , dedicated to Spirituality, Harmony and Beauty.

VISION for the Future...

"Damanhur was born to bring together the dreams of many people, to create something new, something never imagined before, something that this time can actually become reality. We need reality, therefore it's necessary that dreams come true, so that they can allow us to carry
on dreaming..." - Falco Tarassaco, the Founder of Damanhur

Damanhur is a model of sustainable society, "example for the future, the seed of a culture of Peace that can inspire change in the world's
economic and social systems."
People there created an eco-society based upon ethical and spiritual values. They do live in harmony with nature and with each other. Life in Damanhur is based on trust, kindness and sharing. People dream, create and live together , they practice organic agriculture and use renewable energies. Damanhurians respect and protect the Mother Earth
as sentient being!
So the life that people created at Damanhur is not so futuristic,
it's their reality(and has been for 40 years)!
And it's deeply grounded in their philosophy:
"Life is continuous transformation and renewal that comes about through contact with others, in order to bring out the most profound aspects of ourselves, those that connect us with the divine essence of the universe...
"According to this vision, we as human beings hold a divine spark to be reawakened through living everyday life with action, positive thinking and the practical realization of our ideals. We are part of a single divine energy that fills our
entire universe, touching all its forms, and our task is
to enter into conscious contact with this energy,
within and beyond ourselves."
The Temples of Humankind , "the Eighth Wonder of the World", are one the most remarkable manifestations of this philosophy, and symbolically represent the inner rooms of every human being,
a profound journey inside the self...

"Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man..." - J. L.

It's time to bring back the true values of life, to reawaken our divinity and the dreamer inside, so we can create New life and reality(following the examples like Damanhur), and experience the real joy - Joy of being alive!
And if you ever felt that you don't fit in this world, it's because you came here to create a New One!
So, Go.. Create.. and feel Alive!

"You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one"
- John Lennon
With LOVE,
Dr. Tatiana
Wishing You Happy, Joyous and Magical New Year!

NET of LIGHT Gathering and Meditation
(Every third Thursday of the month)

Thursday, January 17 | 7 pm
From "Our Love is Our Power" , by Sharon McErlane :
"The time of Earth changes, foretold by ancient teachings is upon us. At such moments in history, the Divine comes to Earth to intervene. This time has been referred in many cultures as the time when God the Mother will return to earth. An aspect of the Divine Feminine (energy of Yin ) has come to Earth in the form of the Great Council of Grandmothers . Their mission (and ours) is to restore the Feminine Principle of energy back to our beloved planet, which at this time suffers from a depletion of the energy of yin and an over supply of the energy of yang. "It is time to return to balance, and for this women must lead. Women must take the first step. It can be no other way." The Grandmothers ask us to participate during this time by casting the Net of Light . The Net of Light is lit by the hearts of those who hold it, lit by the sacred places on earth, by the saints, sages and avatars who have come to uphold our planet at this time and by all those who love life and gladly serve."
"The Net of Light will hold the Earth steady during the times of change." - they say.
