Spring Equinox

March 17

The ritual of marking the transition between seasons of the year has been carried out on all continents since the beginning of human history.

At Damanhur, the Equinoxes and Solstices are particularly sacred times of the year. The entire community celebrates these important events inside large stone circles. During the days of the ritual, a fire is lit to represent the sun. During the Solstice, another second fire symbolizes the moon. The ritual is divided into three phases: lighting, culmination, and extinguishing of the fire.

Damanhurians enter the circle wearing robes of varying colors, according to their seniority. They offer herbs to the fires, meditate, sing, and recite hymns and prayers composed by Damanhurians. Most phases of the rituals are accompanied by music and Sacred Dance.

These are joyful occasions, and guests are also welcome to join in by registering in advance at the Damanhur Welcome Center.

Prerequisites: Registration at the Welcome Center & prior visit to the Damjl area.
