Welcome Home: Damanhur

Damanhur is a

community of around 600 people who have settled in a valley in Italy not far

from Turin. Their communal life is based on grassroots democracy, ecology and

an esoteric spirituality. They consider themselves a state with its own

constitution and its own currency. A small, fully equipped world complete with

a school, youth center, a newspaper editorial staff, and an absolute ban on

smoking so as not to spoil the purity of the earth. Outside their community

life, the Damanhurians practice quite common professions­–there are lawyers and

real estate agents. The Federation of Damanhur–a new home for many life
