The World’s Largest Intentional Eco-Community
Miami Beach, FL – On November 13, 2008 from 7pm to 10pm, Miami’s top
artists, educators, environmentalists, community leaders and media will gather to
welcome special representatives of The Federation of Damanhur. The world’s
largest intentional eco-community, Damanhur featured in February 2008
on ABC’s Good Morning America has chosen Miami Beach as the community’s main North American hub for their
educational programs and events.
The first event, Damanhur Reception and Music of the Plants, will be held at
the Miami Beach Botanical Garden on the full moon of Thursday, November
13th. The program will include a magical concert of the plants utilizing one of
Damanhur’s revolutionary technologies that converts the energy of the plants and
translates it into music, a short video of Damanhur and open conversation with
the Damanhurian Ambassadors, Crotalo Sesamo and Shama Viola.
“We are thrilled to be opening up a center in Miami,” said Crotalo Sesamo. “As
part of our first program we’ll be creating a spiral stone labyrinth which will
become a permanent interactive art installation at the Miami Beach Botanical
Garden, our gift to the community.”
Damanhur has city centers all over the world in countries
such as Italy, France, Austria, Japan, Germany and Croatia.
Founded in 1975 and located in northwestern Italy, the federation of Damanhur
(“the city of light”) has been described as one of the largest and most successful
advanced technological intentional eco-villages in the world. Damanhur is a
Federation of Communities with a continuously evolving social and political
structure. They are also renowned for building the largest underground temple in
the world. The Temples of Humankind at Damanhur are an extraordinary work of
art that has been described as an “Eight Wonder of the World”. A United Nations
award- winning sustainable community, Damanhur is an eco-society based upon
ethical and spiritual values, esoteric traditions and modern research.
The world which they speak about is surrounded and motivated by the beauty of
art, guided daily by spiritual purpose, and a commitment to manifesting the
Damanhur dream; the successes of their ideals manifested as a living reality
ignite hope for the future of humanity and for the realization of a diverse and
unified peaceable planet.
