Damanhur Get

The Popolo Consolidates its Collective Gifts, Talents and Wisdom in a Sacred Container

In Damanhur's sacred language, the word "Get" means "god/force"; Damanhur Get represents the sacred force that the Popolo Spirituale creates and shares. During this ritual, the Popolo's collective talents, gifts, memories, knowledge and other characteristics are consolidated, offered up and sent into a common reservoir to be preserved and used at a later date. Members of the Popolo can reach into this container and access any of these accumulated skills to enhance their own. This weekly ritual is also when the members of the Popolo offer what they have accomplished to the divinity in a reciprocal exchange.

This beautiful ritual includes passing a reflecting mirror (which has a Selfic instrument integrated into it) from one person to another. As each person "self-reflects", they connect more deeply with oneself and the important aspects that comprise the soul. Typically, participants receive higher guidance about themselves or about collective projects. The ritual concludes with everyone charging their Popolo bracelet (a simple pink string that is tied around your wrist), to fill the space with emotion and create a single alchemical element that is represented by those who are present. (More durable Popolo bracelets are available for purchase at OroCrea).

In addition to the weekly ritual, a monthly Damanhur Get event takes place in order to offer the actions of the Popolo from the preceding month and set the energy for the next month so that the objectives of the Popolo are achieved. This monthly event is focused around new achievements as a whole community, as opposed to individual realizations. It's a beautiful event to attend in order to fully understand the nature of the Popolo's strong bond.

The monthly Damanhur Get is celebrated in the Temples of Humankind's Hall of Earth or in the Open Temple around a central fire; the weekly Get takes place in the Temple's Hall of Mirrors. Participants have an opportunity to "read" the fire and make personal contact with it. The monthly Get is celebrated in the Open Temple or the Temples of Humankind, depending on the weather.
