Damanhur Con Te Series no. 1
Community agora and elixir for a long social life
Author: Coboldo Melo
The philosophy and political system of the first forty years of Damanhur, Federation of Communities, is an original and unpredictable journey inspired by the participatory democracy of the Greek polis. Elected roles, responsibilities and human relations form a community that brings to life a new social model in continuous transformation. Now, in the new Millennium and in the land of Olivetti’s dream, Spaceships (spaceships) have arrived, clusters of small communities overflowing with ambitious projects.
Damanhur, with more than forty years of history and over a thousand members worldwide, is a social and spiritual experience with many stories to tell. “Damanhur Con Te” is a way to collect, share and bring home pieces of the wisdom — or the foolhardiness, depending on how you look at it — that has guided us on this adventure.
