Ancient Civilizations of Humankind
This event has been canceled 7/25/12 due to family emergency.  If you have any questions call Morgan at 206-406-5523.  Thank you.

Members of the Italian community of Damanhur will visit Asheville August 15-19, offering evening presentations with Q&A, as well as a two-day weekend workshop on Ancient Civilizations and Atlantis.  

Crotalo Sesamo, the course presenter, offers the questions "What if mankind, in this very moment of history, is not at the peak of its evolution, but instead weakened by a loss of knowledge about itself?  What if part of the solution to problems and challenges in the world today can be found by reconnecting differently with parts of our own past?"  He then goes on to offer ideas, possibilities and meditations that the adventure of humankind is a much longer story than we are usually told, and linked not only to Earth but to the Universe.  Is it possible ancient alien and extra-terrestrial colonies represent the origin of different evolutionary streams of the human seed on Earth?  Is there a hidden history of humanity  that caries within it possible future developments.

During this course you will be given the opportunity to look at some classic themes from this line of research. Atlantis, for example: whether or not it existed is not the point, the question is why the traces which lead to it are so weak, as though its history has been consumed in another time line, and we are only reached by a weak echo of it in the form of a myth.  And there are other civilizations which we today confine to myths because we are not able to place them historically. Maybe they have become myths so as to blend in with other legends and no longer give us access to valuable historical perspective and technologies?

This course will touch on the mystery of Atlantis with its unusual archeology and lost knowledge as well as our stellar roots, presenting innovative approaches to how we can link with a different time line, including the theory and the experimental hypothesis of time travel.

Founded in 1975 and located in Northwestern Italy, the Federation of Damanhur is an internationally renowned center for spiritual, artistic, and community development.  Damanhur is also an evolving intentional community of over 1000 people worldwide.  Damanhurians are known for having built the world's largest underground temple, called the Temples of Humankind, composed of astonishing and inspirational vaulted ceilings, stained glass, sculptures, and murals based upon sacred geometry.
