We are made up of the same material as stars and the same material as dirt. Be willing to give your life over to something greater than yourself, and see just how great your life can become! Choose to live life as an exploration. Choose to be a truth seeker, instead of a truth know it all. Make a commitment to remain more committed to being connected than to being right. Laugh a lot – especially at yourself. Stop and smell the flowers.
Enjoy the absolute magic of this gift called life – the miracle of every breath. Become a joyous vegan – our forks are weapons of mass destruction or tools of mass compassion depending on the choices we make.

Damanhur is the most incredible human community I have ever been to. It is based on art; a spirit and nature-based, non-religious philosophy; sustainability; and innovation.
They make their own olive oil, wine, cheese, and grow their own vegetables, as well as network with local farmers in surrounding areas to supply what they are not able to produce. Another group family focuses on sustainable energy.
The community is a constantly evolving artistic project—not just in the limited sense of things like painting, sculpture, and stained glass, but also in the way they organize the community and in projects and business.
I HIGHLY recommend that you go to their website to get a tiny taste of the magic of who they are and what they do.
