Purification of the Popolo

A Ritual for Purity and Renewal

During this pensive ritual of purification filled with music, poems and prayer, the Popolo Spirituale expresses a desire to release non-harmonious thoughts and actions, thereby renewing itself and finding its purity. Citizens of Damanhur take turns gazing at a candle flame to burn all impurities. One of the characteristics of the Popolo Spirituale is that it enables its members to share skills, talents and spiritual experiences by activating a para-telepathic sense of exchange. At the end of this purification ritual, a phase is dedicated to this exchange called the Para-telepathic Union of the Popolo Spirituale. This is a moment where you may experience a profound connection with other members of the Popolo.


To participate, you must be a member of the Popolo Spirituale and have already visited the Temples. Pre-registration is required. Some visits and areas of Damanhur are not suitable for children under 14 years of age; before making your purchase, click here to view the minimum age requirements.
