Wednesday, October 17th - A DAY IN DAMANHUR'S ENCHANTED FOREST
10am - 5.30pm The Sacred Woods Temple—located on about 124 acres (50 hectares) above the Temples of Humankind—is one of the most magical places on earth to make contact with the plant world and nature spirits. In fact, it is where three Mother Worlds converge: the plant world, spirits of nature and, of course, humans and animals. The honoring and strengthening of these three worlds is crucial at this moment in our human history and you will discover why on this full-day guided tour. On the surface, the Sacred Woods Temple is an enchanted forest lush with plant life. Simply walking along its sprawling, nut-scattered pathways is enough to settle you into a state of tranquility and wonder. In this primitive place, the gifts of nature awaken all the senses: the pulp-scented air, the lilt of birdsong, crunchy twigs and feathery moss under foot, majestic trees standing at attention.
Lunch included in the day program (AT OGNI DOVE).
