Journey to Southern ItalyReserve Your Spot for Gargano
with Crotalo Sesamo and Jennifer Evanko
Dates: September 11, 2022 – September 18, 2022
Welcome to Gargano
Crotalo Sesamo, World Ambassador of Damanhur, will be your guide in this magical Journey. He has been leading groups on this particular adventure for a number of years now and I can promise you that this journey will prove to be interesting.
Gargano is a very special place to Damanhur. The two locations are connected by Syncronic lines and Gargano is where Falco came the first time with the Viaggio in 1983 and created an open-air laboratory for Damanhur’s magical research. The Tree Orientation Program started there and yearly retreats from Damanhur have taken place every year since the year 2000.
Crotalo Sesamo has been bringing groups here for many years and knows the area and all its treasures well. Our location by the sea allows us to enjoy the beach, discover the sacred sites and the local towns within a few hours’ drive for the furthest of our destinations.
We will visit the ancient sanctuary of Monte Sant’ Angelo. We will learn about the Archangel Michael and the magical connections and analogies with Horus as well as the connection of Michael to the Damanhur region of Italy.
Grotta dell’Acqua, built near the sea caves, will be our residence for the week. It was the place where Falco gave birth to the Game of Life in 1983. We will listen to tales about Damanhur and the Viaggio.
We will go to other locations such as, Castel del Monte, a magical site where we will visit the castle built in the XIII century for King Federico II. This is a “cabin” of the past, entirely based on sacred geometries linked to number 8.
